    These are some of the blocks I have finished for the 'plaid cats' quilt. Also a picture of the pattern if I ever get it finished. AFter coloring, you stitch around the edges with embroidery thread. Love this process. It's so much fun

    I just had the priviledge of sharing this method, crayolas on fabric. they didn't dothe embroidry, but those 2 girls are having a great summer. 1 was 11 and 1 was 9. they made Father's day pillows for pretty much every one. It was a real treat for me. I love the work you have done and the pattern is great. Keep up the good work.
