Guest Post: Quilt Block Colouring Pages with The Boy
Today's post comes to you courtesy of The Boy. I took the above photo and helped him scan in his blocks but the post-writing (minus the links) and drafting of the quilt blocks are his doing. (Note that he hasn't taken English in school yet. To date, all his learning has been in French.)
Yesterday I was drawing and colering quilt blocs desines with instroctions that were in a little Booklet. In the frste plase, I fownd The Booklet (Quick and Easy Block Tool by Liz Aneloski) in my moms pile of iquipment nire the chare in the dining room bie the window. I liked the Booklet bicause it hade detald blocs with a lot of pattrnes and shapse inside, and it hade 102 quilt blocs. I chose my 4 bicause they were cool.
The wons that I made were: Homespun, Jacob's Ladder II, Double Sawtooth Star and Paradox as you might see.
I traste some lines on a shite of paper like a tic tac tow borde (well, on some of them anyway). Then I divided the scwers into 2, 4, 6, or 8 spases. I aded diagonal, horazontal and vertical lines to make the shapse. Then I colerd them in diffrent colers. On some of them I used the colors that were alreddy in the Booklet but on Homespun I didint.
My favoret bloke is Paradox bicause it has my favoret ditalse of all the blocs. And it looks like a 3D X! I like douing this activity bicause I really enjoy lerning pattrnes and shapse. And I do like colering!
Thank you for coming. Cache you latter!
