    I finally finished the Pixie Crayon quilt for my 4 yr.old GreatGrandDaughter Keyli' she is in love with TinkerBell. :shock: I printed Tinker color pictures from the internet. Not enough of different ones you can only pose her so many ways then it gets repetitive. So I printed some fairies and pixies She can call them Tinkers Kin folks. :lol: I have one more that I am working on for Her one year old Brother. I will be finished after New Years day. Then I will mail it to him. That will be 3 crayon quilts,I don't think I will be doing any more any time soon. I am about colored out WHEW!!!!!!!!!!!!! I also outlined this one in Black Thread. A lot of work but I really enjoyed doing them that way. It really makes them Pop out. I just noticed the time on the pictures is for Nove. It is wrong I am going to fix that tomorrow. Just took the pictures tonight. Gotta to fix that on my camera tomorrow.

    I wouldn't say they were hard to do beachlady. If you are making one the size I made. The tracing is time consuming,A lot of coloring you have to have a least 2 colorings per picture to make it bright. The blocks are 12 by 12. Then the sashes. Then I outlined in Black Thread. Soooo they are time consuming if you are making them this large but not hard to do.
    Just making 3 I had to make myself sit and color and color and color. Know what I mean. :D

    I have requested the biggest Crayola set for xmas as you inspired me with this technique :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Did you quilt as you go, as I can see you have made an excellent job of going around every little detail...as I would lol!!

    GREAT JOB!!!!!! :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

    Edit: That sounds like I am blowing my own trumpet...what I meant was fussing about going around all the details tee hee!!! :oops:

    Thank you for the kind words and I understand what you mean I think is a personality thing about details. :lol: I do love taking time to do the details. It just makes the pixies pop out doesn't it?
    I didn't quilt until I sandwiched and sprayed quilt glue on both sides,then pinned the sashes all over the quilt.

    I made a quilt many years ago useing those colored pens that were popular. It is still colorful. Traced pictures from a color book and filled in with the embroidery pens.
    Do they still sell those, anybody?
