Coloring is perhaps one of my favorite memories from childhood and today is still one of my favorite things to do. When I saw this beautiful quilt (above) I thought that now I can combine my two favorite things: coloring and sewing.
I found this bolt of fabric in the Attic Window Quilt Shop.
This is a close up of the fabric.  It is called Monochrome by Jenny Beyer for RJR Fabrics.
 This is a close up of one of the blocks in the quilt above.  I understand that crayons were used on this fabric, but I’d like to try colored pencils, or maybe some fabric paint.  Whatever I do, I bet it will be lots of fun. 

OF INTEREST:  Enjoy boldly painted plywood quilt blocks on historic barns and buildings when you travel the Vicksburg Quilt Trail.  You can travel through the scenic countryside and visit the quaint town of Vicksburg, Michigan.  Depending on when you go, it might be a good time to enjoy the beautiful fall colors too.  For further information contact the Vicksburg Quilt Trail at 269-329-04811.

ON ANOTHER NOTEEchinops & Aster blog has a tutorial for a sewing machine cover.  Really cute!

PS:  Molly Flanders was asking to see our favorite quilt, so I'm linking up to her today.  Check out her blog here to see lots of other favorites. 

Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!

What a great idea! I've used watercolor pencils to color in a few stitcheries in the past. I'd never thought of coloring on big pieces of fabric though.

I've not seen that fabric before! What a great idea.

That's kind of fun. I meant to say on your previous post, I never did make it to Art Prize.
