Instructions for a Crayola Quilt
Several have shown interest in making a Crayola Quilt so I wanted to show what I used to get started. You could use coloring book pages if you wanted to. I chose to use my own photography of birds. The illustration is of a Baltimore Oriole.
Step 1. In photo shop I changed my photo to a black and white picture, then changed it into a pencil sketch.
Step 2. I transferred the pencil sketch using Water Soluble Graphite Pencils

Is that a good excuse to be late for work on Monday morning? I thought I had plenty of time, but I ran over when I stopped my usual routine to cut binding strips for my quilt this morning before I went to work. I just couldn't wait until tonight to do it. It was a quick job, but apparently not quick enough. I was 10 minutes late this morning. I just was so anxious to get the binding started after taking yesterday afternoon to watch a movie and do some housework and play with the dog.
Had a lovely, busy day. I went to a church annual meeting about 80 miles away to preside over the meeting for them. This was my third time at this church, which has been through quite a bit of controversy in the last two years. Things are turning around for them now, so it was nice that they had me back to see them playing nice together.
The sunny cold day was great for the drive. Just put on the cruise control and glide.
When I got home, I started right in on making
I recently purchased an old treadly machine. It says Domestic S.M. Co. Any information on how old it is or where a person could find parts would be greatly appreciated. The patent dates on the machine are May 19, 1863 November 15,1864 and Jan. 31, 1871.
I know everyone has cold temps right now. I am so looking forward to warm weather again!!
If I had my way we would stay home today but mom wants to go out to eat with 2 of my 3 kids to celebrate Valentine's Day. She is a big one for marking the holidays of all kinds.
So we are off in a few hours to go meet one of my sons and his family and my daughter and her family. That is if miss Rachel aplogizes for throwing an attitude! LOL Sara just called and Rachel threw her toothbrush
I finished the quilting on my first every lap quilt top this morning. It went a lot easier this morning because I was doing parts that didn't need special attention. I had quilted the vertical and diagonal lines yesterday and just had to be careful to check everytime I finished for bubble and the back messing up. Luckily that all went pretty smoothly, so I did the diagonal lines this morning and was done in less than 2 hours. I like the way it came out and I'll be squaring and binding this week.
It has been awhile since I have been online here to post.. I am so sorry for those that have wondered about Ollieman.. You are ALL angels for sending PM messages asking how he is doing..
I've not been able to get over completely this bout of pneumonia, so its been difficult to find energy or strength to sit, and write without coughing, and trying to catch my breath. Sadly, the breath is not being my friend, so its been quite diffficult to say the least..
But, I am doing
