Book Tour and Giveaway: "Amish Quilts Coloring Book" by Rachel J. Good


About the book

Amish Quilts Coloring BOOK coverFeeling 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 Thoughts
I was given 2 sheets to color from the book. I really liked the symmetry of the quilt designs and simplicity of having the same design to color. It made me feel relaxed. It was almost as if I was laying out a quilt to sew. I also liked the Amish proverbs that were at the top of the coloring sheets.
