Hello! My name is Karen and I love to color!
I have always loved to color since I was a child. Then I grew up (some say differently). Adult coloring that is becoming so popular is wonderful. The coloring book "Amish Quilts" is such a beautiful book to color. Quilt designs of all kinds sends your creativity in to all sorts of color combinations. Coloring is a way for me to relax and de-stress. It is fun and allows you to be an artist on paper. To the right and to the left are two examples I colored that are in Rachel Good's "Amish Quilts" A great way to express your inner creativity. This is a book of coloring you will want!
About the Book
Inspired by quilts seen in Amish country, many of these designs are based on traditional patterns, but some have been reimagined or repeated multiple times to create more intricate designs to color. Each quilt is printed on only one side of the page; facing pages contain inspirational Amish proverbs. To make the quilts even more colorful and interesting, sketch fabric designs – plaids, checks, paisleys, flowers, or abstract shapes – into the larger quilt blocks, use pattern stamps, or even collage fabric scraps to the pages. And if the designs inspire you to make quilts of your own, the pages can be used as templates for quilt-making.
