Highly Recommend - An awesome way to add colors!!
I took a class with local quilt guild and loved it so much I had to have this book. I personally found it easier to use a small stencil brush then the napkins, I would put to much pressure on the napkin and then have to much color or rub the napkin until it left little pieces. For some reason I could control the pressure more with the brush. I am going to use this technique on my competition quilt. I am also going to use it to make some wall hangings and to accent some other projects I have going too.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Display quilts and wall hangings
When I saw this book, I was excited as I love the colors in my box of 64 crayons. I thought it would show me quilts that used fabric in those colors. Boy, was I wrong. It is a book that shows how to melt crayons and paint the melted crayon onto fabric which you cut out and make appliques. The technique instructions are very well written and following them would not be a problem.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

While the technique is very creative, I can’t imagine actually using a quilt made with such a technique. Therefore, these quilts are for items that don’t get washed repeatedly. Those are not the kind of quilts I enjoy making.
While the items made with this melted crayon technique are beautiful, I will not be making them as I make quilts that my family can curl up with. If you are looking for display items such as wall hangings, this book will provide you with a new technique and beautiful pieces.
