It only took me about 2 hours to get the basic top done. Above is the layout of all the pieces. I like putting them in rows like a crayon box, by color family and tone...ROYGBIV and all.
One of the things about this pattern that makes it my favorite of all the crayon patterns is the black squigglies that you fuse and sew onto the wrappers. This, to me, is what makes them the most playful...and, for my son, it is where they go from being houses to crayons! :)
I have the top together, now I just need to piece the middle borders and add the two white borders. Hopefully, I'll have it done within the week, and, of course, I'll post!
