Katie's Quilt

These are some of my favorite blocks in the the quilt I'm working on right now. I colored the drawings on cotton fabric, using regular crayons, melted the wax into the fabric with an iron, then highlighted the pictures with hand embroidery.

I finished the last of the "babies" today and will sash them into a quilt top later this afternoon. They're all blonde, like my Katie, and most have her curly hair. I'll post pictures when it's done but couldn't wait.

This coloring technique is the one I plan to use on my Green Tara quilt. It makes me happy just to imagine sleeping under her protection. I'm really looking forward to working on it.
