Quilt of the Day: Study in Solids

In the fabric store, I am always attracted to the big beautiful florals and bold prints. But I have found that working them into a quilt is not as easy as I thought.

Then, in reviewing the quilts I like, it amazes me to see how many of them are actually made from solids. It is such a brave and bold choice. There is no pattern to ‘hide’ your imperfections. No big flowers to draw people’s eye around. What you see is what you get.

Gasp. I am swooning.
Look what she picked for the back:

There’s my big floral statement!

Fabienne quilted this masterpiece.
Festival de couleurs
(Now, I think that is a mini quilt, but it would work just as well as a bigger quilt too)
Here again, the quilting itself takes this from a project to an artist’s statement.

What about you? What do you prefer to work with?
