    Stichinl... Let them color a paper quilt to hang on the wall. Sash and border it with fancy paper. Low cost and fun to make.

    Supposedly, they fade a little each time they are washed. Regular crayons can be used as well as fabric crayons.

    If heat set with a hot iron (with white, non textured paper towel or a piece of copy paper over it) crayons are permanent since the iron melts them in to bind with the cotton. Ask me how I know to use non-textured paper towels! :lol:

    Wonderful quilt and wonderful idea, thanks for sharing this!! Snuggling up with a bible quilt is perfect.
    The crayon is permanent, my kids colored on pillowcases when they were small and we ironed it with a sheet of white copy paper, they still look good today over 10 years (and many washings) later. :-D

    That is just too cute. What did they color it with. It looks so bright to be crayons.

    What a wonderful way to get children more interesting in Bible reading. They can memorize a verse for each picture for "show and tell"!

    Thanks again for all the encouraging words.

    I hope everyone who tries this will share their Bible quilt pictures with me so I can showcase them on my blog. I would love to get pictures of children making the quilts as well.

    This kind of quilting calls for teamwork. Kids can do the pictures but they need quilters to put them together for them. I'm stumbling at the quilting stage myself.

    Thanks for sharing your detailed instructions for using coloring book pages, in your blog. You have made it sound simple and easy to do with involvement of children. Thank you.
