Since first writing this post in 2020 I have updated these free quilt pattern coloring pages to include many more quilt designs that have since been released. These line art coloring pages are created as an easy-to-print multi-page PDF. You can print one quilt pattern or all of them. Each sheet is 8.5" x 11" and can be printed at home for your kids or yourself!
If you don't have a home printer, you can recolor these geometric designs on your phone or tablet with the ReColor app. I filmed a less than tech savvy tutorial on how to use this free app and you can check it out in the Suzy Quilts Patterns Facebook group.
To give you some context, because I don't typically create printable coloring sheets, it's March 23, 2020 and chances are you're stuck at home under strict guidelines to not leave your house unless it's absolutely essential. Here in Chicago we are on the second week of our COVID-19 quarantine. Yes, it may be only two weeks, but to those of us with energetic kids, it feels like two months!
Let me tell you, Scrappy has had enough. She is ready for Desi to get out of the house, or at least, out of her space.
I try to coax Desi into petting his stuffed animals, but he only has eyes for Scrap....poor pup....
Scrappy's favorite time is Desi's nap time (which also happens to be one of my favorite times too.) During those two precious naps, Scrap enjoys quiet moments that remind her of her old life when she was the only baby and all of the quilts belonged to her.
I say all of this because if you too have kids, pets or even a restless roommate, times are tough and we need things to do! I'm continually reaching for my phone searching the internet for ways to entertain the children. My one major roadblock is that Desi is only 13 months, and that is a bit too young for most activities.
This morning I made him play dough, but instead of actually playing with the dough he poked it once and then spent 5 minutes sucking on a cookie cutter. This afternoon I actually got so desperate for something to do I let him play with leftover sticky rice on top of a cardboard box. Just typing that sentence makes me laugh! Let me explain.
I saw on Facebook or Pinterest or some rainbow-colored pre-school blog that rice in a tub is a great activity for kids. Children can put their toys in the rice, scoop it, dump it, shake it, swirl it, scratch it...you get the picture. Well, due to the world going MAD and my local grocery store not having dried rice anymore, I decided that cooked rice would be just as good.
And, instead of a tub, I'd use a broken down box because that's what I already had in my kitchen.
This scene is not what the educational blog looked like.
Friends, I'm confessing my very questionable parenting in an attempt to explain why I felt the need to spend Desi's two precious naps making these free quilt pattern coloring pages. We all desperately need things to do! Am I right?
