    Wow. That certainly is a gorgeous piece of art. No wonder you are inspired. Now I have to find out what this crayon technique is. Thanks for bringing me up to speed.

    My 2 yo grand daughter will be visiting and I think I will prepare some fabric and let her color on them. I think I will collect some different textures like sandpaper and screen etc and an have her color over them to make designs. Later I will sash them into a top and give it to her as a memento of the trip. If we start a tradition we can watch her artistic abilities develop.

    I think this will be fun for both of us. Thanks for your inspiration and help.

    I LOVE what you did -- the crayon coloring, beading, and the quilting all came together to make a fantastic block!
