    Crayon quilt

    Name:  101_3372.JPG
Views: 2456
Size:  305.2 KBIn searching for a pattern for this fun quilt, I found lots of variations posted on this board, mostly from 2015. I incorporated some of your great ideas and came up with my version. It's going next weekend to a baby shower for a little guy, due in January. Lots of fun to make, and I only "had" to buy a few orange & red ft quarters ("had to" because of course buying new fabric is such a chore!). Everything else, including the backing & binding, was in my stash just waiting to be put to use.

    Well done! I got my Colour Me pattern as a free insert in one of my quilt magazine. I did mine with black background and my grand niece loved it.

    This is sew kool. Did you use 2.5" strips? I have been thinking about making a quilt like this for a long time. Think I want to make an I Spy Crayon quilt. BrendaK

    Very cute quilt. A good way to use up shorter scraps.

    That is super cute. It would be a wonderful teaching tool and the little fellow to whom it was given is ready to learn his colors. You had lots of lovely fabric scraps to use.
