I just finished this quilt for my bodycombat instructor who had a baby girl last month.
I started it last year. I passed plain cream fabric and fabric crayons around amongst her friends and family at the gym, they made some great squares! I alternated the crayon squares with plain coloured squares and backed the quilt with pale blue flannelette, which is nice and soft. I machine quilted in the ditch then hand quilted different shapes in all the plain coloured squares.
I was very pleased with how it turned out and I hope Mum and Baby get lots of use out of it.

   

   
This is a close up of one of my favourite crayon squares and my favourite quilted square.

Thats beautiful.  Grin   Is the crayon going to come off though  if the quilt is used?  How did you keep the crayon on the fabric. Huh

I bought a set of pentel fabric crayons from my local art store. After you draw your picture you iron the fabric between absorbent paper, all the oil and a little of the surface colour come out into the paper then what you're left with won't rub off or wash out (hopefully!)
I ironed freezer paper on to the back of the fabric to make it easier to draw on. Freezer paper is a handy stuff, I bought it in a roll from a quilting store, it sticks to your fabric when you iron it but it peels of easily leaving no residue. I got it to do applique but in this case I used it to stop the fabric stretching around while you draw on it.

That is great! It's sooooo refreshing to see these modern takes more staid, traditional techniques.. this is so vibrant, cool, and sweet, all at the same time!

That is one of the cutest signature type quilts I have ever seen. I would love to know from anyone who has made a quilt or anything with those crayons if they stay nicely.

Great job!

That is the cutest thing! In my elementary school all of the teachers made a patch and they put them all together and it looked a little like your quilt!  Except yours is much prettier Wink !
