A crayon quilt

I mentioned in my last post that my daughter’s wedding took place at the Hacienda Picalquí, which belongs to the Fundación Brethren y Unida, one of the oldest NGOs in Ecuador.

I also mentioned that my family has been involved in this foundation in one way or another over the years. And this year my mother and I have become more directly involved. I am volunteering some time at the Hacienda Picalquí, on a weekly basis. The week after the wedding they held their annual children’s summer camp and I was asked to participate with an activity.

The kids were eager to make something to leave at the Hacienda. The group varied in ages from 7 to 15. So, as a quilter, my thoughts gravitated naturally towards a crayon quilt. The kids drawings centered on what things stood out for them from the week they were spending there.

The final quilt turned out great, don’t you think? It is now hanging proudly in the dining hall. 🙂

    Beautiful idea! So children painted on fabric, isn’t it? What kind of crayons did they use?
