    I found the neatest thing ever, especially for quilters that don't use EQ.

    Its printable coloring sheets of some of the most popular blocks that you can color in to see which colors work, etc.

    Its like EQ does it, but you can print them directly from the website. I printed some off also, just because I love playing around with the "creating" aspect of quilting. Plus the kid in me still loves to color, LOL!

    I also going to print out a bunch and attach a cute cover to make a coloring book for a quilty friend of mine.

    Just click on the block and it brings up the coloring sheet to print. Here's the link:

    also check out quiltivate.com where you can pick a block, color it then turn it into a quilt layout to see if you like it, if not, you can change the colors, turn the blocks around, etc, all before printing out the quilt you've drawn.

    This sounds cool, too.I'm going to go check it out right now. I've got EQ, though, I do that in it.

    But, this will come in helpful for people who dont have EQ. And even with EQ, I still like to print them out and color them, LOL!

    Thanks for the link. I was able to copy the image and save it to my computer. Then I opened it up with my "Paint" program and colored it in.
    FUN!
