    I bet it is the one that inspired me to do this, from Black Cat Creations? One of the prettiest quilts that I have ever laid eyes on. I would love to do that one too!

    Just wanted to let you all know, I do plan to finish this quilt. Hopefully this winter. I would love to see what others have done since the tutorial was posted early 2012.

    Simply brilliant! You captured the color and shape of the bird exquisitely.

    Yes. Just regular Crayola crayons were used. Hope you give it a try, it's fun to blend the colors.

    I really enjoyed your tute and your bird is beautiful! I've done a few blocks with crayons the way you say to do it, but I haven't embroidered around the blocks...that really adds such nice touch! Thank you so much for the additional infomation and example! Lovely!

    Janice, your Baltimore Oriole is beautiful. We have yellow finch that come to our window and I am always wanting to capture them in drawing/quilting. Thanks for the nudge to get her done!

    I appreciate all the comments and hope this tutorial has helped. I started this quilt about this time last year, and didn't work on it all summer or fall. I have picked it up again and have 10 more to do. You can check out where I started my post called "The Beginnings of a Crayola Quilt" it was my first 3 blocks completed. I will have 20 when completed. Thanks again for your encouragement.

    You will love it! I'm still doing the embroidery work and not much of that during the summer. Hope to finish this next winter. Good luck and I hope you will post your pics.
