I have now done 2 and a third of the border on the irish chain and a few of the inner circles. I redid the Dear Jane design on the software that I bought and the new one looks a whole lot better. This too will be a bright quilt.
Arb fact for the day:
The first crayons was a mixture of charcoal and oil. In the early 1900s,
cousins Edwin Binney and Harold Smith developed a nontoxic wax crayon. Binney’s wife, Alice, attached the French word for chalk, "craie", with "ola", from oily, to form the Crayola brand name. Their first box of Crayola crayons came in a box of eight colors of black, blue, brown, green, orange, purple, red, and yellow, and were sold for a nickel in 1903. By 1957, 40 new colors were added. Today, there are more than 120 crayon colours, including Atomic Tangerine, Blizzard Blue, Mango Tango, Outrageous Orange, Laser Lemon, Screamin’ Green and Shocking Pink. Over 5 billion crayons are produced each year. To date, over a 100 billion crayons have been produced so far.
