    Hello and welcome from Ontario. Many quilters use colouring book pictures as a guide to embroider, piece, or applique depending on the look you want.

    Before computers I used a transfer pen to outline the pictures in a coloring book. The transfer pen was the iron-on kind. I embroidered them - by hand. These sat in a WIP bin for 37 years until I finally turned them into the quilt I had planned for DD and gave it to her for her DD 2 years ago.

    I would look for the transfers on ebay...there should be some vintage ones that might be what you are looking for.

    I made one a few years ago. I did all the nursery rhyme outlines in redwork. It really came out cute. Here are some of the nursery rhymes that I used. Post a picture when you can.
