Mad for Solids - What did they make?

Do you have a fabric bundle that you admire daily, but can't quite decide what to do with it? We checked in with some of our Mad for Solids designers to see what they've used their curated Painter's Palette Solids bundles to make. After seeing these projects, we're itching to start sewing...what about you? 

Spring Fling

Cheryl says, "With my bundle of solids, I made a mini quilt using little flower applique shapes and then added some straight line quilting to give the mini texture and hold down the flowers.  I gave the mini to my co-worker who's husband is battling cancer." Read more about it here.

Heirloom Opal

Shelley used her cool color palette to create the Heirloom Opal quilt. Love that rich purple background!

Simone's bold colors pop on the navy background in this graphic yet simple design.

Mid Century Mod
Tania @iamgingerq

Tania says, "I love to play around with old blocks as see how I can tweak them just a bit.  My favourite block is the shoofly. I changed the centre square to a rectangle, altered the hsts to be one large and one small and mid mod shoofly. I believe that modern quilters have a link back to traditional quilters, it is part of our creative history."

Love this little scissors mini she made too! 

Prosecco & Cream by the Sea

Jayne says, "I’ve been waiting for the perfect design to use my Mad for Solids bundle! I recently went through a Mondrian Art phase that inspired my latest design ‘Modern Geometry.’ While I’m not a math person, the idea of fitting shapes together was intriguing and a puzzle I was determined to figure out. And the icing on the cake has to be the colors!"
