Crayon Workshop

We quilters are a funny bunch.  As if there isn’t enough fabric in the world we have to create our own.  In this case with crayons.  Yep, good old fashioned crayons that we loved so much in our younger years.  We still love them and Terrie Kagar has spent a lot of time playing with melting the crayon and seeing what happens.  Did you catch that part?  Melting the crayon….. using our fancy irons and Teflon pressing sheets that work in tandem to melt crayon which we then brush onto our fabric using a very high tech tool, the lowly folded napkin.  Seriously…it works!   Melting allows you to shade different colors along the shapes creating depth.  The end result is a pear that looks like a pear, leaves, etc.

Thank you Terrie for spending the day with us and teaching your fun technique.
