Quilting with solids: inspiration

I haven’t made an all-solids quilt but as the Kona cotton solids pile up around me I find their pull is getting more and more irresistible. Not to mention I have seen so much inspiration online lately! Here are a few all-solids quilts I’ve been admiring.

Recently, the Modern Quilt Guild did a week of solids and this modern log cabin quilt by Shea Henderson caught my eye. She modeled if after Nate’s Quilt in Malka Dubrawky’s book Fresh Quilting (one of my absolute favourite quilting books).

I have been watching with delight as Lucie Summers pieces her first all-solids quilt top. It’s absolutely stunning and she has kept us updated on her progress with frequent blog posts. Here is the latest at the time of this writing!

I went back to my pinterest board because I tend to pin solid quilts and re-discovered this gorgeous quilt. It’s a good reminder that solids can be relaxing as well as energising – it’s all about colour!

I can see that this was pinned from Farm7.static.flickr but I’m not sure whose work this is. If you know, I’d love to add a proper credit to this gorgeous work.

I am a big fan of Katie Pedersen‘s Half-Square Triangle quilt. Not only because she’s in Seattle, which is where I’m from originally, but because I just love these colours together. She has other versions of this quilt on her blog, and always puts together wonderful combinations.

Are you working on any solid quilts? Do you start with the colours or the design?
