    Scattered Crayons inspired by Tartan

    I've so enjoyed seeing all the versions of crayon quilts and chose white for the background on mine to go with the fun backing fabric. I chose to add a couple strips of black in my crayons to go along with the crayola idea. I chose different measurements for the top and bottom spaces of my crayons, the purple one really shows it up the most and I really like it. Name:  Crayon March 2015002_edited (Small).JPG

    That is such a fun quilt and so neat with the added black strips. Having different distances at the tops and bottoms from the edge was a great idea.

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

    Your color choices for your crayons is fabulous. I like the crayola idea look with the addition of the black strips.
    Your design of making the crayons scattered is fun. You are so talented. ...and you found the perfect fabric for the backing. A crayon quilt would be a perfect wall hanging for a teacher's room. I will put this quilt on my bucket list.
