Terrie is the author of "Creative Quilts From Your Crayon Box". I highly suggest you purchase this book if you are interested in learning her art form!! I bought mine today :^) You can find it on Amazon.com and at Grandma's attic in Dallas, Oregon. http://www.grandmasatticquilting.com/

So this is how our day went:
We started with setting up our areas and then jumping right in designing a pear with melted crayons.
|start with your basic pear shape on fused fabric|
|heat surface-non stick pressing sheet and pear|
|apply color-melted crayon|
|shade with more melted crayon|
|my pear in the works|
|class pears done!!|
|adding shading with a pencil|
|Megan and Ginger busy working on their projects|
|This one is the cover for her book!!!|
Now on to the flowers!! These were fun and I love all the different flowers that were created by our group!!
|getting ready to apply more color|
|adding some shading to the center of the flower|
|And done!! Gorgeous!!!|
|Jean had already taken the class, so she is working on another melted crayon quilt project!!|
|beginning with the first color|
|applying more color|
|now coloring in the beak|
|So this is what I started with on my hummingbird|
|and done!! :^)|
And lastly, we learned how to make another kind of flower! Lots of potential design with this one using layered petals!!
|a partial flower, but beautiful!!|
|and here are my results of a really fun day designing with melted crayons.|
Thank-you to Terrie and Kristy!! We had such fun with your technique and I am planning on doing much more with it!!! I highly recommend this workshop and/or book to everyone who wants to learn a new and fun way to design or embellish quilts!!
Take care everyone, Happy Quilting, and keep those scissors sharp!!! Martha
