Crayon Commute

On my last trip to my local quilt shop I discovered this adorable fabric:

Crayon Commute stack

The bolt was wedged in with some other transportation themed fabric, but this one just jumped out at me.  It’s called (rather appropriately) Crayon Commute and it’s by Alexander Henry. 

It didn’t take me long to find some coordinating solids.  I found a blue Riley Blake blender fabric (color: Robin), the red is American Banner Rose from Moda and the yellow is from the Moda line Charlevoix.  That yellow fabric is the most beautiful yellow color, and it’s buttery-soft.  I’m not a yellow fan, but just the feel of that fabric makes me want to find an excuse to use it again. 

And speaking of using things again…

I’m still a huge fan of the Hometown line.

This quilt top is created with all of the leftovers from my Right Turn Only quilt.  This one is small – about 42” x 46” or so.  I’ll show more of it soon – once it is quilted and bound.
