Day 4 From My Solids Vault

Amish Shadows
Here is another quilt that I made using the Windham Gee's Bend Solids. I based it on a traditional Amish quilt I saw in a book. Those colors are so drenched and pop out as they sit between the black squares. And seeing those squares set on point is so much more interesting than not, huh?

This quilt appeared in McCall's about 2 years ago and is also in my 2014 wall calendar. This is how it appeared in McCall's:

  1. It's beautiful. I love the way the black sets out the colors. I have ALMOST worked with solids several times but am seduced away by pattern. This Hop has strengthened my resolve to do something in solids this year. :)

  5. I love the colors! I don't know how I missed that line of fabrics. Whenever you say "vault," I envision a huge bank vault and inside stacks and stacks of quilts you've made. =)

Then I popped over and Here you are featuring the first quilt in the calendar! :-) I am looking forward to making at least one (or twelve) projects from this calendar this year!
