Here are a few groups you can hop over to visit:
Fresh Modern Quilts (there are some great solids only quilts here),
Solid Bee Block (check out traditional and modern blocks sewn with solids only),
For the Love of Solids Swap (check out a variety of projects sewn using only solids).
The really fun part begins with checking out these groups, then you discover that many of the individuals contributing have more projects sewn in only solids - they're only a click away!

Did something spark your interest? Are you seeing the possibilities you have when you choose solids? I know I am! I'm looking at solids with a fresh eye. They have taken a backseat to prints in my stash, but after browsing the images of projects created by others in solely solids, I'm rethinking my stash habits. lol I definitely want to start stitching up projects with solids. How about you?
Jane and I are both excited to be sharing this adventure with you and we're here for you. We want to cheer you on as you step into the wonderful world of sewing with solids, so please join us and share what thoughts you may have on Sew into Solids (our Flickr group). We'd love to hear from you!
We're gearing up to show our choices for pattern and colour starting on Monday (here and over at Jane's) and hope you're on your way to selecting a pattern and colours as well. Meantime, would you like some more inspiration to help you?
