I'm Bullish on Solids
|Toro de Osborne - Olé|
Yes, I love solids and I love my son in law Dani from Spain. I drew his name for the Secret Santa gift exchange in our family this year and besides buying him another Amazon gift card, I really couldn't think of anything unique or interesting. Then I saw a Facebook photo of him cooking his famous (and yummy) paella for friends and he was wearing his red apron with the black Spanish bull on the front and - EUREKA! I realized he needed matching hot pads and even a table mat for his steaming paella pan (table mat is in above pic).
Can you say "unique?" Interesting? I downloaded a jpg image of Osborne, resized it, printed it and created a template. I even had the traditional red and yellow solids.

I did sacrifice one thing in the process - a sewing machine needle when I inadvertently sewed through my finger when I was free motion quilting. Not a pretty site, but hey - the fabric is red and you can't see the stain!
Don't forget that the Kona Solids Blog Hop begins on Tuesday, January 7. I am bringing out all sorts of quilts made with solids from my Solids Vault. Please stop back by to see each day's bloggers. This is all hosted by our dear Madame Samm at the Sew We Quilt blog and Carol is our cheerleader at the Just Let Me Quilt blog.
