    This quilt was made with alphabet blocks that were colored with Inktense pencils by my mother. They were the last ones she made before she passed away. I made the quilt for my mother's great grandson.

    I have compared moistening agents (water, clear aloe vera gel, plain Liquitex Fabric Medium and thinned) to check on color change and softness of the fabric before and after washing. This PDF file shows and explains my results. Choices might depend on whether one is coloring before or after quilting.

    Thank you for the tut and I do have a question. What is the best way to cover a large area without getting it saturated on the back of your quilted project?

    I've never heard of this technique. Happened upon this thread...
    That quilt is darling! I'm sorry about your Mom...what wonderful memories you have from this quilt.

    Cricket Quilts ... I'm not sure I understand your question. How large is the area you want to cover? Aloe vera gel doesn't really get the fabric very wet. If you use the gel to moisten the dry color before layering with batting and backing, it is no problem. The fabric is often dry within 5 minutes. If you are laying with cotton batting, it would never go through to the backing. I use wool batting a lot, but I'm not ever coloring a large area.
