    I hand appliqued a cat in the lower left corner of this small lap quilt. Her bow was shaded with crayons to make it look more realistic. I also colored in the eyes and nose with crayons, then I hand embroidered over the top with black embroidery floss.

    That is a really beautiful quilt. Love the simplicity with the pop of color. The cat is a great touch of whimsy.

    Very pretty quilt.

    I had not heard of using crayons to color on a quilt. Tell me more.

    There are special fabric crayons you can buy. You color the item, then use a sheeting and iron over the parts colored to set it. Some people used to use the old colors to do it, but I don't think the newer kids sets work as well.

    I actually used my kids crayons. I colored it in, covered it with a paper towel to absorb the wax, and ironed it. If it needed a bit more color, do it again. You can layer color and shading that way. Prang and Crayola are the best brands of crayons.

    I think there is a little girl out there somewhere that will be absolutely delighted to receive this quilt. You did an awesome job on your applique kitty. Did you have a pattern for the applique or make it up yourself?

    The kitten was a great addition - makes a very good quilt into something extra special.
