    The flowers I made for an 84 yr. old friend in a retirement apt. She likes to garden so I thought she would like them.
    The other one is a smaller colored version of one I call Playtime Remembered.

    That looks like it would be so much fun to do.

    These are SO pretty. I really like the soft colors & the
    expert detailing on them.
    Anyone would treasure them..........

    What is this technique called ? Do you need special colored pencils for this? They really are very beautiful.

    Those are so pretty :mrgreen: Great Job :thumbup:

    Do you just use regular fabric or do you treat it first ? Also how do you keep the fabric from moving as you color it ?

    Thanks for sharing

    I've never done any with colored pencils; but did do some with crayons. I love yours, they look so soft and dainty.

    Thank you all for your comments. I had a quilt guild meeting tonight so I'm just getting back to this.
    I haven't treated the fabric. I quilt the design with my longarm and then color it. I also did the Playtime Remembered larger, maybe 24" where this one is about 18". The bigger size makes it too large of an area to color as far as I'm concerned. There is a clear paint medium that you are suppose to paint over this but I'm figuring if they are wall hangings, I'll probably just vacuum them I'm just using Prang colored pencils. Others say Prisma colored pencils are better but they are also a lot more expensive. Thought I'd try it less expensive till I decide I like the result.

    These are beautiful. So you used colored pencils on your quilting? If you wash it, will it wash out?

    It isn't suppose to, I did "set" the color with an iron. IF it does lighten, I'll just recolor it. But as I said, I'll just use this on wall hangings for now.
