I do ,I used to love to color with my kids .The books they had were kind of mindless I don't know if the designs they have in those adult books would relax or stress me.

I love mandala's and abstracts. Very Jungian. I use to do that instead of doodling. Then I turned some of them into weavings. There is just "something" about filling a circle :-) Thanks for this.

I am looking for a quilt coloring book, one where I can play with color to help when designing quilts, would be great to have some plain, traditional style blocks to try out color ways.

There are some on Amazon.

Thanks for sharing these pages. I never thought I would have the patience for coloring, but it might be just what I need. I do have some friends who will love these.
(If I have the patience to quilt, one would think I could have the patience to color)
My yoga group is talking about starting a coloring group at our library.

These are great! Thanks for sharing! I have very happy memories of coloring with my daughter when she was younger. I have been reading a lot lately about the calming effect coloring has on adults. Going to give these a try for sure. :)

Thanks Pat!

Why do some of them look like quilting designs! LOL I'm seeing quilting designs everywhere I look these days.

I got some books this summer for when we are at the lake. I also bought the Crayola retractable pencils/crayons. They are great! From these designs, I really liked the owl.

Adult coloring books have been a really hot seller at my store. There are so many kinds I have seen quilt block ones also. Then I seen dot to dots for adults too... Just can't take on any more things to do. LOL

I have several of the dot to dot books!!! Some have over 500 numbers! They really are sometimes difficult to get thru.

I like coloring! A friend got me an adult coloring book and it's fun! On days I work from home (I'm in IT) if I have to call into a meeting where I'm not a key person, but do have to pay attention I find the coloring allows me to keep from being bored, but unlike reading email, I can still focus on the conversation in the meeting and provided input where I can. If only it was acceptable to take my coloring books to the office! lol

I bought several of the Tula Pink color books and put them away for Christmas. Just need to find some good deal on the colored pencils. It's nice quality paper stock and each page is perforated so you can frame your artwork!

I love to color. I still have a few coloring books that I had when I was a kid.

Not being an artist in any way, I've been trying my hand at Zentangle. It's doodling but with a few rules. It's fun and creates some interesting drawings.

Now that coloring is in vogue again, there are a bunch of coloring apps for my Android phone. I can color anywhere now!

I just got a call from my stepdaughter about Thanksgiving. She is the one that hosts it every year. She told me that there is going to be more than usual this year. People going through a lot of problems and no where to go. If she liked dogs she would have a kennel. lol

I'm going to print these out to keep some people that drink too much busy. That sounds funny, but young people that are depressed drink too much. I think this might help distract some situations.

One Christmas I brought I Spy books. Works like a charm. :)

I just picked up a package at Walmart. I read on youtube from one of the artists that you do not need to spend a lot of money. Check out youtube, there are videos on how to get good color with pencils. Even how to mix the colors. This is so darn relaxing, great to do before bed.

Has anyone seen this fabric line? Some of the prints are outlines that you color yourself. So stinkin' cute for a little boy or girl type prints, and if they are adept enough they could help you color in their design. Massdrop is offering them but here's the Michael Miller fabrics link.
