I received my order from Keepsake Quilting today. I'm excited about this coloring book I ordered. This is Helen Weinman's Quilts: Color by Number Book 1.
When I decided to order this book, I was hoping it would have one or two pages that I could use with my class at school. When I started thumbing through it today I realized it is so much more than I expected. Not only is it loaded with fourteen color by number quilt designs, it has a great color key and un-numbered designs to create your own color combinations and design your own patterns. And get this.....you are encouraged, in print, to copy these pages for your own use!!! In addition to all of this, they've included a page of words and definitions to teach beginning quilting/sewing vocabulary.
Most pages also include a picture of a sewing or quilting tool or notion which match the provided vocabulary. This book is a great educational tool and will be a welcome addition to my curriculum at school but I also have to admit that I will be coloring some of the pages myself!!!
