    Tennessee Waltz colors

    Help, please! I am looking for a "coloring page" for a Tennessee waltz quilt. I know what the pattern is and how to make it. I want to print out a blank quilt (no colors) so I can use colored pencils and audition colors. Unfortunately my quilting software is so old it won't work on this computer. I have searched all over and find lots of finished TWqs, but no "blank" one. Can someone tell me where I can find one? I can draw it up by hand on graph paper if necessary, but it would be nice to just print one out.

    Thanks to you all in advance.

    OK, I just drew up what I understand as the Tennessee Waltz. I colored it using white. You should be able to copy it of or print it on a printer. This is why I enjoy using EQ7.

    What a unique quilt pattern. I love it and want to make one. Where did you find the pattern? I love the song Tennessee Waltz as it was quite the song when I was growing up.

    If anyone is interested, I finally located the pattern. It is available as a free pattern on the Bumblebee Bags website.

    This pattern makes a gorgeous quilt. Requires precise sewing to make the "waltz" in the block but totally worth it!

    Not free but Eleanor Burns has a book for this quilt.

    Maniac, can a copy of an entire quilt with this block be printed using EQ7? There are times I want to color in order to see the "big" picture? Better yet, will this program do the coloring for you? If so, it makes it very tempting to add this software to my Christmas list.

    I'm so glad you asked this question! The "blank" pattern will be very helpful. You reminded me that I'd love to make this quilt!

    I think you would be thrilled with all you can do with EQ7.
    I'm still learning how to use some of the features, but the basics are easy.

    I love EQ7. Made a wall hanging in a class. Used EQ7 to make the design a King size quilt. Then used EQ7 to audition several color layouts, saved each one & printed each one. Made my decision on my color choices.

    Yes, I could have colored it with using either solids or fabric. The program comes with a library of fabric and the company post on their website about 30 free new current fabrics every month. I have had EQ since 1995. The best thing is about the program is when you need to resize a quilt. Here is a recent charity quilt I twiked using Warm Wishes. I enlarged the focus block from 6" unfinished to 8" finished. You can add your actual fabric you have and put them into the sketchbook:
