    That is beautiful. What kind of crayons did you use ? I have done a couple of baby quilts using crayons that are very cute. One hasn't been washed, so don't know how the crayons will hold up. The other one is done with fabric crayons that are supposed to be permanent but I didn't really like them. The colors were not as pretty and bright as regular crayons. I know a lot of crayola crayons are washable now and won't stay in but what about the old time crayons, if you can still get them? Just curious.

    As I remember reading somewhere, you need to use the original Crayola Crayons, not the washable kind. The originals apparently have more pigment in them. I am going shopping this morning and look for the BIG box of Crayola Crayons with all of the colors.

    Yes you can still get regular Crayola's and please use the (name brand) Crayola Crayons. They give such a pretty effect. I have never tried fabric crayons, and after completing the first 3 squares I'm happy with the way the regular ones blend.
    Always in Stitches,

    So blessed in the opportunity of life, the gifts of nature, and the choice to do good to others. I'm thankful for this day.

    Thank-you for the tut. My sister used an off brand embroidery thread to finish one of her embroidered quilt block. The red in the off brand bleed into the background making a mess. She only buys DMC now.
