Some Useful Resources

May 13, 2011 § 3 Comments

Sometimes when planning a quilt it would be useful to  see lots of the blocks together and to be able to colour them in. If you have Electric Quilt then you can do this on the computer and print it out. But what if don’t EQ? Then you might find these two sites very useful. Both of them list blocks and then give a colouring in page of those blocks. The first site is called Block Central. This is a really handy site that has patterns for lots of blocks as well as a colouring book page.

The second site is www.quilt.com which also has stacks of blocks and some great colouring pages for you to print out. This site allows you to search for blocks by type: 4-patch, 5-patch, 7-patch, 9-patch and other; or you can search for them alphabetically.

And while we’re playing around with colour check this great adobe site – kuler.adobe.com, just don’t blame me if you find a couple of hours have just “slipped away”. You’ve been warned.

    Fantastic info Munaiba, greatly appreciated. I intend to ‘waste’ the next 2 hours – who needs lunch anyway!

    HELP Munaiba! I do have EQ and love it. But I need a free site to tell people about that not only does blocks but also does the quilt too, like EQ does. Do these sites do that also? I am pretty sure Quilt Assistant doesn’t do it. 😦

      Hi Sylvia
      It shows you all the blocks put together in a quilt. If you click on one of the blocks in the colouring book page it will take you the bigger picture. Is this what you meant?
      Cheers
