What did surprise me was just how hard to read the Mashed Potato Crayons are. It's easier when you are closer.
This photo really shows up the wonderful quilting by Chris on the Bright Crayons.
The bright crayons are lovely, but to me there is no mystery. The whole thing is very straightforward. The colors and fabrics echo the sentiment of the phrase. Nothing unexpected here.
BLUE when I realized what I had done. It annoys the heck out of me. And yes, I wish I had used a different BOB on the background of the Y in the Black Crayons.)
I deliberately changed the placement of the birds in each of the quilts. I don't like making two quilts the same (actually I am constitutionally incapable of making two that are exactly alike).
When I sat back in a lawn chair to look at all four of them together, the thing that really hit me was how much I love the Black and White one above all the others. It's a lot more interesting to look at.
