Both coloring and quilting tap into creativity within disciplines defined by lines, borders, and structure. The patterns in this book, all of which are taken from quilts in Colonial Williamsburg's extraordinary collection can be used not only for coloring but also as inspiration for quilters and other fiber artists. A pullout quilt poster is also in the back for you to color.
