Fill-Me-In Patchwork Calendar 2017

Here a quick run-through:

This bi-weekly Calendar with 26 pages for colouring, doodles or tangles is available with black lines for more contrast (and black tangles), or gentle grey lines which after colouring look like hidden seams.

But because not everyone wants a calendar, I’ve added as an alternative a couple of packages with JPGs for printing out and digital colouring, either the 13 Blocks or the 13 Quilts.

The Fill-Me-In Patchwork Calendar and the JPGs are available on the World of Magnifica page on Payhip.

Note: The designs are fairly simple, based mostly on suquares, rectangles and triangles. Intermdiate quilters will recognize most of them and be able to turn them into a quilt. But both the Calender and the JPGs are hand-drawn designs for colouring and tangles, not patterns, and do not include any instructions!

Let’s Party!

Contests, discounts, freebies and giveaways and more fun and games!

Come join us on Facebook in the CTTC – The Colouring, Textiles & Tangles Connection,
