    Crayon Quilts for Sisters

    I don't know if any of you remember the problems I was having getting crayons to stay in the fabric for quilts that I planned to make for each of my sisters for surprise gifts at our family reunion. (Changed my mind about doing all Sunbonnet Sues, and made 5 different quilts)

    Crayola - What am I doing wrong?

    Anyway, I have had some success, and here are the results, if you care to look at the finished quilts. They are just "lap" quilts, each measure 72" x 54", they are embellished with hand-embroidery, (is it a "cheater" panel if you hand-make your own panels?) and they are hand quilted. (I don't know how to machine quilt) sewnsewer2 made the beautiful lables for each quilt, and they are prettier than the quilts. Anyway, I hope my sisters like them.

    Like anything, crayon has to cure. The quilt turned out so pretty.

    Your sisters will surely love these lovely quilts. You do beautiful hand quilting, by the way. Thanks for sharing and have fun at your reunion.

    If you use a white crayon under the color it sets the crayon into the fabric.
