Everyone of my regular patterns has a companion coloring page! I mentioned this in a couple of classes recently, and the students were so surprised and pleased to know this. They are free to download and print as many as you want :) Here is a link to them on the tutorials page.
I spent a little time this week coloring three of the patterns with a somewhat patriotic theme. This is Champagne and Pearls, not exactly the traditional red white and blue. I’ve been toying with the addition of turquoise with red and blue… I can hardly wait to show you what’s coming with that pallet!
The Hollow star pattern got a little jazzed up with the addition of the gold stars. This is a great pattern for Quilts of Valor. I don’t know if they allow gold, but you could do just about anything, and it’s fun to color!
Here is Double Struck Star recolored to be more patriotic. I think I would possibly doing the gold section in shades of gray would make it more subtle, but this version could be cute for a kids room with primary colors.
People ask me how I design my patterns, and I am definitely old school, preferring to sketch in my notebook with color pencils and rulers rather than working with a computerized design software. These coloring pages are really handy when I’m trying out new color schemes!
Okay, so I have to give you a sneak peak of the fabrics I’ve collected for my next quilt. I can’t show you any of the design just yet, but these fabrics tell a very summer picnic story!
:) Stay tuned! Fun stuff ahead!
Happy Sunday, everyone!
