You don't want to see my HST for my blocks trimmed and pressed, so I thought I’d do a little post on something that I have noticed in the last few weeks that might inspire you to try a new project with solid fabrics.
There seems to be a new trend to use solids with printed fabrics. The solid fabrics act as the neutral background where once we would use a white on white fabric… how last century! :o) Elizabeth from Oh, Fransson does that a lot with her work. Just look at this latest post.
Either way it might be nice to have a project that has a bit of both types of fabric. All solids can be a bit daunting… and monotonous (well, at least that’s what I’ve found) so perhaps combining the two would make it easier… hmm is this another project to add to the collection?
Now before you go, here are some links:
- Remember back at the start, I talked about using a picture to create paint chips to create a solids palette? Well now there is a link to simple palette generator gadget… go on - try it! :o)
- Continuing with gadget talk, Bloom did a great post about online gadgets…pop on over and have a look.
- Sandi is doing a series on EQ7 and has generated some wonderful solid quilts.
- And last, but certainly not least, Katherine has finished her Sew into Solids Quilt… she wins :o)
Until next time....
