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 re-imagined 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 Review

I enjoyed the designs in this Amish Quilts Coloring book by Rachel J. Good.  I've always liked the patterns and colors on quilts.  There appears to be plenty of different designs and patterns in this coloring book - everything from the repeating designs of the "Shaded Star" to a singular pattern of "Appliqued Cherries".  I like that on the two page spread there is only one picture.  On the other side is a little saying like "Gardening is a way of showing that you believe in tomorrow." and on top of each coloring page is an Amish Proverb like "Difficulty is the first stage of a miracle." or "Keep your words soft and sweet in case you have to eat them.".

I used markers to color my pages.  It wasn't too difficult although there were some smaller spots that might be easier with colored pencils.

*Thanks to CelebrateLit and the author for a complimentary copy of 2 pages out of this book for the purpose of review.  I was not required to write a positive review and all opinions stated are my own.*
