You don’t have to be an artist to make beautiful art quilts! In Creative Quilts from Your Crayon Box, Terry Linn Kygar teaches you how making colorful appliques with vibrant depth is as easy as coloring in a coloring book. Her unique Melt-n-Blend coloring technique elevates fusible appliques to works of art!
In Creative Quilts from Your Crayon Box, Kygar presents her method of using crayons to add dimension, color, and shading to her applique quilts. Using melted crayon on hot fabric and blending with a paper napkin allows you to color in your appliques to give them a three-dimensional effect and frees you from the limitations of fabric prints. Kygar is confident than anyone, from children to traditional quilters, can quickly and easily learn this technique.
Creative Quilts from Your Crayon Box includes seven patterns for applique quilts using the Melt-n-Blend technique. Each pattern comes with applique templates for each shape in the quilt, “recipes” for the crayon colors used on each applique, and cutting instructions. The patterns feature pretty, colorful motifs from nature like flowers, birds, butterflies, and fruit. The finished quilts are perfect as pillow covers, table runners, or wall hangings. They are sure to bring a dose of vibrant color into your decor!
