Quilt from Gramma

My Mom made a quilt for our baby, with 5 little girls colored and sewn around. I should have taken a shot of the whole quilt. It is such a cute technique- she used crayons to color the little girls, and then embroidered all around...and they all have red hair- just like our baby! She loves to sleep with this quilt, all cozy and warm...thank you Gramma! We love you!

Oh My! I love that - I'd really like to get into quilting and I love to do embroidery. Does the crayon bleed when you wash it?

G-knee- she washed it after she colored it and it sets the crayon. I can get more info from her if you want.

That is just adorable! I'll have to write a future post on my children's baby quilt, hand-sewn by a friend. They still use it in the wintertime on top of their comforter. I get so many good ideas from your blog!

I didn't wash it afterward. I pressed it with a ordinary paper on top with a dry iron, I think. The color will not come out just as if a crayon goes through the laundry in a pocket!

Come to think about it, I may have washed them afterward. That is why they look wrinkly. It is the ironing which sets the color. I found out about this technique from Tami, Sara.
