Quilts from solids

February 24, 2012

Have you been following along over at The Modern Quilt Guild? There’s been a lovely parade of modern quilts since January, along with notes from the featured quiltmaker. This week is showcasing quilts made with solids, which is definitely worth a look.

This is my own modest collection of quilts made from Robert Kaufman Kona cotton solids. From left to right: Cherry Fizz, Sliced Fruit, Foreign Currency, Off Your Rocker and Quartered Squares.

Never tried a quilt in all solids? With so many colors available, the possibilities are endless, from modern baby quilts to wall art to bed size quilts. There are lots of ways to get started. I’ve got charms, jelly rolls and fat quarter bundles in case inspiration strikes. I can custom cut charms and rolls if you need a particular color for your project and want to save some cutting time. Or I’ve got kits from Cherry House Quilts and Carolina Patchworks if you like to work with patterns and colors from designers who know their stuff.

How about this graphic zig zag quilt? The pattern is free from Moda, and uses an easy no-triangle construction method from 2.5″ strips and 5″ charms. Choose your favorite colors and let me cut your strips and squares for you!!

What colors would you choose?

    I’ve not tried a “solids only” quilt yet, but those look stunning! I think I would want to try the one in the graphic, in blue and white….
