Crayon Flowers Quilt

The blocks for this quilted wallhanging (39" by 40") were made during a Scrapper's Quilt Guild meeting, using a box of 64 Crayola Crayons! We had patterns that we traced onto the white fabric, then we colored the flowers, using waxed paper and an iron regularly to remove the excess wax, and soften the colors. We used a variety of colors for shading to make the flowers look real. The next step was to use matching embroidery floss to outline the colored flowers, vase, and table, etc.

The blocks were set in sashing that is called "Attic Windows". The two different shades for the window sills give depth to the quilt, and the black edging deepens the 3D effect.

The hand-quilting includes a diagonal grid behind the flowers, and parallel lines along the sashing and borders.

Black piping was sewn along the edges before the binding was applied. This is an extra detail that ties into the black edging on the windows.
