Get out your colored pencils or markers!

When’s the last time you colored??  I don’t very often.  And I’m not sure why because I find it so relaxing and creative.  Oh, I’ve bought the adult coloring books and the colored pencils…… haven’t you?

Let’s have a little fun!  Start by printing out your FREE Storm at Sea pattern.

Then find your colored pencils or markers..  Easy so far??

These are my favorite colored pencils!  You can get them at Michaels.

Using your favorite pencils or markers just start to add some color.  See how there are circles, intertwining shapes,  hearts, stars, medallions?  Freedom to play!  When’s the last time you did that??  You may want to look at my Storm at Sea Pinterest Board for inspiration and ideas.

What if you really like your design and want to make it into a quilt?  Print your free pattern HERE!

The two units used are the Square in  Square and the Diamond Rects. Follow your design to make each unit.  For example, the Square Squared on the left side would be a blue center square, red triangles on opposite sides and blue triangles on the other tow sides.  The Diamond Rects on the left side would be made by using a blue diamond with two red triangles on the opposite sides. The other two triangles would be light blue and dark blue.
