Look at the yellowed edges of those pages! I've had these coloring books for 5-10 years.
I like the candle on the right, simply because it has fewer leaves, although I can make as many or few as I like. Also I like the small holly berries on that one.
I'm going to applique it to a background of 6" blocks created from white scrap yardage; here it's just fused down without stitching...
looks nice already, doesn't it?
I'm thinking of putting a very narrow (1-1/2") inner border around it, maybe in green, then add a wider white border from scrap yardage. If I applique some fussy-cut holly and leaves along the outer border, I should have it ready for quilting before the weekend.
it's very sweet! clever of you to keep old coloring books around! ;-) scrappy just seems, "christmas-y" doesn't it? can't wait to see more!
What a totally cute idea! Love it.
Aren't old coloring books the best! Now they come with stickers & such and the fun is gone. I really like your background fabric(s). I have a friend who uses old coloring books for her redwork projects
I often use colouring books for appliqué you can certainly get some great ideas. I love the candle it's gorgeous.
