This quilt was made for Gabby who sadly passed away before she saw her picture in the Kourageous Kids Calendar. Our guild makes quilts for the childre from their art work.

I have not embroidered anything on this quilt but I wanted to share with you. The centre was taken from Gabby's picture and I had found the Angels that were a B.O.M. online. I traced them on to white fabric and then coloured them in with crayon's and colouring pencils. I heat set them when I was finished. I felt like a kid again while doing this quilt. Her parents just loved the quilt and her 3 brothers want quilts too. I said if they gave me a picture I would make a quilt for them, but No - they want Gabby Quilts just like their sisters. I thought that was so special.

I love these quilts. Could I ask if you used special crayons and colouring pencils?

Hi Yvonne,

I used Crayolla colouring pencils (reg type) and a good quality water colour pencils without wetting them. When I was finished I covered the picture with paper towel and kept the hot iron on it for as long as I could without burning. I did this a couple of times to make sure it was set. I used a glitter paint in the same way to give some hightlights.
