Older quilts

I made this little quilt a few years ago. It's colored with crayons and I used reproduction fabrics plus a few feedsacks from my limited collection. The quilt behind it was a find in an Arkansas junk store. I think I paid $17 for the top. My friend Donna T. quilted it. I found the old ladder in a store in Broken Arrow.
The following pillow and quilt are also ones that I made a few years ago.

The quilt pattern was featured on the cover of the Keepsake Quilting catalog and I just had to have it. I machine appliqued the tulips, but for some reason I decided to hand quilt the quilt. Last year when we went to Vermont we sneaked across the New Hampshire border just so I could go to Keepsake Qulting. It was worth the trip.

I don't think I've ever seen that tulip quilt finished. I love the tulips!

Are you kidding me? I made it at least 6 or 7 years ago.

I had that same tulip pattern but gave it away. Didn't think I would ever do it.
Great quilt. Have you washed it much?
Someone was asking about washing a quilt with crayon on it from my blog. I have not washed one yet and was wondering how it held up.

I like your quilt with the tulip applique. I like a pieced quilt with applique added.

Does it have crayons on it? Denise

HI Mama T!

Do you can tell me what kind of crayons did you used on the quilt?
Very good work
Thank you
