    My crayon quilt

    After seeing Tartan's crayon quilt and mme3924's crayon quilt, I decided to make one. Here it is. This will be one of four youth quilts I donate to our guild's charity committee, as they put out a "We need more quilts for young people" alarm last month.

    I think some young person will like it. I sure hope so. I thought it was a good use of scraps, until I realized most of my scraps are blue and purple, or maybe earth tone. I had to do some digging to find scraps for the crayon colors I wanted, and eventually had to borrow orange scraps from my sister.

    Mine is 43 inches by 49 inches. I think they each had seven crayons, but mine has six.

    That turned out so cute. It will make some child very happy. It couldn't be any more cheerful.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Super. How large is the top of your crayon? Great way to use scraps. BrendaK

    Excellent! I love it. I have plans to make 1 or 2 for Grandkids. I'll keep yours as an example!

    It's really pretty.

    Wow! I sure like your quilt - and thanks for giving me another quilt idea for our youngest grandson Although paintmejudy has helped me use up quite a few scraps, I bet I could muster up enough to make one of these (or else I'll just have to go out again and buy MORE fabric ). Some child will sure be happy with your quilt.

    Nice! I really like the colors against black. A crayon quilt is on my want-to-do list and I can see how it'd take some time to get that many different colored scraps gathered up. At least for me.
