    Here is a quilt my grandchildren helped to color. It still isn't finished. I'm hitting hurdles getting it quilted.

    The picture was taken at a Toastmasters meeting where I gave a speech on making Bible quilts.

    What a great idea! I'm sure the children are proud that you used their work in the quilt!

    Thanks everyone.

    I already have the directions on my Bible quilt blog at http://biblequilt.com.

    I hope to be producing some coloring books made specifically for quilting in the near future. I have an artist friend working with me to do the sketches. I'm better at drawing with a pencil and eraser and cutting with scissors.

    What a beautiful quilt. Not familiar with using crayons on quilts. What happens when you wash it? Need some quilt education.

    After you color the fabric you press it between paper towels with a very hot iron. That sets the color. It isn't as permanent as the color in most fabrics, but it is supposed to hold up to several washing. My approach is to use batting that can take a hot iron. Then if later on it begins to fade you just get the crayons back out and refresh the color.

    What a fantastic quilt. That would be great for any child I know. My gkd's aren't old enough to color though. I'll have to wait a few years.
