Crayon Quilts Finished - August 19

I layered and finished 2 crayon quilt tops late last week. I quilted the second one on Sunday morning, just in time to take to our monthly Project Linus group. There have been so few blankets coming in to the Kansas City PL chapter that only Children's Mercy Hospital received blankets in July. So I've been motivated to finish a few blankets.

The first quilt features pictures of children playing and also has a couple of ice cream sundaes. What child doesn't like ice cream? The crayon blocks are alternated with some of the heart blocks I made last fall.

The second quilt is mostly dinosaurs with a couple of space aliens tossed in. I really liked the rainbow dinosaur. You can see the creativeness of the kids who colored the pictures.
