|• DESIGNS WORTH COLORING •
graduating from the New York School of Fine Design in 1912, Ruby Short
McKim went to work teaching fine art classes. One of her goals was to
inspire creativity in all. She loved both Art Deco and Nouveau, which
is evident in her quilt and needlework patterns.
Merrily McKim Tuohey, the youngest of the McKim granddaughters, is the
one that followed Ruby’s passion for art. She instinctively created a
cottage industry of her own – McKim Studios Revival – dedicated to
preserve, protect and share her Grammy’s legacy.
Merrily’s oldest daughter, Delia Brianne Tuohey, has also inherited the
family passion for art. Since childhood she has dabbled in watercolor,
acrylic and pen. Repeating patterns have always intrigued her, and in
the last 5 years she discovered “doodle art”, also called zentangle.
Merrily and Delia collaborated on a unique series of coloring pages
that combine geometric and organic forms based around Ruby's Flower
Garden Quilt series patterns. We hope you enjoy this series as much as
