About the book
Feeling stressed? Why not relax with an adult coloring book? Rachel J. Good’s Amish Quilts Coloring Book takes you back to a time and place that’s calm. Immerse yourself in a world of peace as you color the 25 different quilts.
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.
My Two Cents
I have always wanted to quilt but have to be honest and say that I am horrible at sewing. I love Rachel’s coloring book because I get to “sew” beautiful quilts by coloring them. I also get to relax while doing it!
I like that each quilt has its own page so you can color and display each one. There is a beautiful proverb that goes with each page that I found very encouraging. This coloring book will bring you hours of fun. It is not just for women or adults, my son colored the quilt displayed on this post.
I have included a colored and uncolored sample for you to view.
I give the Amish Quilts Coloring Book 5 out of 5 stars. A fun book not to be missed!
