Last year I heard of a neat project: after coloring on muslin with crayons, you iron it and it becomes permanent. Anytime I can use a crayon, I'm in! So I finally had a chance to try the idea: I had my friend Amanda's three kids color, then did some sewing. Yesterday it was finished! With a few random bug buttons, it's done! (Minus one square which needs colored.) It's been fun to try my hand at quilting, and I look forward to doing another!
