    Quilt coloring page - does this exist?

    I'm going to a quilt retreat in November and the block is Hunter's Star. I would like to find a black and white outline of a Hunter's Star quilt that I could use to color with colored pencils to help me decide on what fabric to use and what my color scheme will be. Does anyone know of a site that has outlines like this? I've tried Google images with about every variation of search word I can think of but maybe I"m not using the right term.

    Here's one. You need 4 of these to make a star, but this in the individual block.

    Yesterday someone posted a site for all kinds of printed paper--from graphs, to games to letter paper. Why don't you print off some graph pages to your 'per inch' size and sketch out the star..print several pages for trial colors. http://www.printablepaper.net/category/quilting

    Not really an outline and probably not what you are looking for but it may be helpful.

    Here's the page it's from http://www.electricquilt.com/Users/F...ons/Oceans.asp
    But it looks like PaperPrincess posted a good diagram.

    Thanks kristakz and PaperPrincess! That's just what I was looking for. Now I can crack out the colored pencils and go to town. Ranger, I was looking at the printed interfacing - interesting, I don't know what it is. I wonder why the instructions are sold separately. Have never seen that before. Thanks to all who responded, the members of this QB are an unbelievable resource. There's nothing about quilting that they don't know!

    Draw it out on your own on graph paper, then darken the lines considerably and xerox it.

    I know this is kind of a late reply but better late than never right?
    I've actually never thought about quilt coloring pages before and I looked online and found this page called supercoloring, you can find some at the Home coloring pages under decorations, let me know if this helped

    There are a couple of good ideas there for quilting designs and it's worth taking a look. Thanks for following up! I ended up finding a Hunter's Star coloring page and made part of the quilt but found that the design was too fussy for me so I passed the project on to someone who will finish it. Thanks again!

    These links are so cool. Thanks to all who posted them. I have a bunch of red and white 4-patches that were made for an exchange that I didn't get to attend. I've been wondering what to do with them for years! I got several ideas from the coloring pages. QB is the best!
