    This pillow was made by coloring a plain white square with crayons, placing a paper towel over it, and ironing it. Then I embroidered around it with the blanket stitch and embroidery floss. When I quilted the block, I quilted the background densely, but not the duck. It gives it an appliqued look. The duck pattern and pillow instructions are from the book "Beautiful Big Dogs".

    The second photo shows how they look as traditional hand applique.

    They are both very nice! As for the "crayons" - you do mean Paintstiks right? Not Crayola kind... (just wanting to clarify).

    Explosive blessings, abundance and inspiration to you all!

    Love the pix. I use crayons too. Did an Overall Sam that I traced with permanent markers and then used crayons to color - heat set. Can be washed. We even did that for some curtains in a Sunday school class room years & years ago.

    Love your pillow, I have seen the Crayola crayons used on a quilt before and have always wanted to try it. Yours is beautiful, love the colors and the border you used on the outside of the duck.

    What a neat technique & I was going to ask if it was washable but someone up a few remarks answered it. I like how you can control the shading. Very nice.
