A Fun Day Coloring

Yesterday I participated in a workshop at my guild.   Patricia Beaver spent they day with us teaching us how to make a crayon quilt.  I was amazed how easy and fast it is. 

I took the class wanting to make a block using a picture of my granddaughter, Emily.  My idea is to use it as a focal point in a quilt I’d like to make her for her high school graduation.

Here’s the picture I started out with.

EmHere’s my first attempt -


It’s not bad but there’s something just not right with her jaw line and eyes.  I’ve decided to do it again (it really doesn’t take that long).  Here’s my pencil tracing for my second attempt.


So now it’s time to get out the crayons and start coloring again. 

Thank you Patricia for a fun-filled day.




Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I love knowing that I'm not alone, blogging into thin air.
