Another two blocks for you this month – All Kinds and Paducah Peony.
We also have a Summer Special to help you while away that time lazing on a sunny beach (we can but dream) – not one, not two but three colouring sheets to download. Sheet One is a combination of the two blocks and the others are the blocks straight set on their own. Don’t forget that you can have a lot of extra fun by cutting up the sheets and rearranging the blocks. Try putting them on point, or overlapping them perhaps? Download All Kinds here and Paducah Peony here.

This month’s doodles feature those two favourites – Log Cabin and Courthouse Steps, together with Southern Star.
The colouring page is a simple 9-block set with the Southern Star block in the middle. You can download it here. Remember that you can print out the colouring page multiple times and then cut it up, rearrange the blocks, design your own layout to colour, as well as colouring in the layout we’ve given you. We reckon that more than half the fun of patchwork is playing around with the design and colour part – so put your feet up, have a cuppa and get colouring.
The EQ Doodles have been posted from the Overseas Office and Chris has been coaxed in from the garden at C&B Towers to make a colouring page for you. (it helps that it is raining this morning – Chris) The Summer Winds block seemed very appropriate for this time of year and it has been paired with the simple nine-patch Hour Glass block.
Download your colouring sheet here. Remember you can print it out as often as you like, cut it up, play around with it . . .
Have a look at the Doodles page to see what we came up with.
So how did May creep up so quickly when some of us hadn’t even realised it was April??! All of which means that the May EQ Doodles are there ready to look at and the colouring page has been done as well. You can download it here. But, having not noticed April coming (and going again), there was no Doodle colouring page to download last month – so here it is at last. Just too much excitement in the gardens of C&B Towers, I fear: new flower beds and paths to create, seedlings to prick out, plants to pot on, shrubs to prune, summer bulbs to plant . . . .
Here’s a reminder of last month’s Doodle –
Don’t forget you can photocopy the colouring pages and cut them up to create your own new designs.
And for colour inspiration –
Once upon a time we organised classes at our local railway station – yes, really! Some flashback shots from one of several Sampler classes we taught, featuring one of our most-requested blocks Tangled Star.
March already – Spring is on the way and so are new Doodles. Have a look at the Doodles page to see what we have come up with this month and download your own version to colour here.
Somehow, although the February Doodles Quilt to Colour page was done and ready, we managed not to put it in a blog post all month. (Our Doodle Director has been taken to task!) So, with many apologies, you can download the February Doodle here.
The joy of these colouring pages is that not only can you print out as many as you want to colour but you can also cut them up and re-arrange the blocks to see what new patterns you can come up with. Perhaps you could try combining blocks from February with the March block? Here’s just one suggestion –
If you are need of a project or some more ideas why not hop over to the Meadowside Designs blog and download some of the free block patterns from there. You will find links to all the blocks on the Tutorials page; and a Block of the Month is also running.
If it’s the start of a month it must be time to update our EQ Doodles page – and we have! Click on the tab above to find out what’s on offer this month.
We have featured our favourite quilt program Electric Quilt via a set of monthly Doodles for several years now (probably too many to count! – Chris) and from time to time we have a trawl through the files and say “Oh I really like that one” “Must make that one” “That could be a pattern” and, well you get the idea. Our latest brainwave (under the influence of caffeine) is to maybe post some former doodles, maybe some class pics, maybe “other stuff” in the form of a Flashback Friday post. We may even begin doing that this month!! Stay tuned……
