It's a brand new year and I'm feeling like it's time to try something fun and different with my quilting. One of my goals from 2012 was to sew an all-solids quilt. I came pretty close with my Rainbow Pop quilt, which had only had a small smattering of prints, but I thought that I might challenge myself this year to sew a quilt without a single print anywhere in the design of the top.
When I was asked to participate once again in the Curated Collections Series at Sew Lux Fabrics, I knew that I really wanted to create an all-solids bundle for January using some of my favorite shades from the Moda Bella Solids Collection. As soon as this stack of rainbow goodness arrived, I immediately cut into it and started working on a new quilt project that highlights these colors beautifully (photos to follow shortly, I promise!). Working with these has been a nice injection of color into my greyish winter. : )
Here's a little more about my inspiration for this bundle:
With the new year comes a fresh start and a blank page. It feels like the perfect time of year to simplify life and pair down to the essentials. Working with all solids is a bit like that. It's liberating to set printed patterns aside for a moment and work only with fresh color and value in the most pure and direct way. Happy New Year!
