solids… for one of you!

When I first started quilting, I hardly ever used solids – I was definitely all about the prints. Then I realized how much solids could add to a quilt design… and now I have quite a large collection of solids! I had never made a quilt out of just solids though, so it was a nice change to work on the Kites in the Clouds quilt that I showed yesterday. I’m thinking there will be more all-solids quilts in my future!

How about you? Do you use a lot of solids? Whether or not you do, I have a little giveaway for you from the lovely Jackie over at Canton Village Quilt Works. This fat quarter stack will either start you on your way to adding solids to your stash, or it will add to your existing solid stash!

I love Jackie’s shop for the great selection of solids – she carries lots of Kona solids (at a nice price, too!) which you can buy by the yard (with a minimum 1/4 yard cut – nice if you want just a bit to start…). She also has a nice selection of precuts, including charm packs, jelly rolls and fat quarter bundles. I’m also fond of the Robert Kaufman Essex cotton/linen blend fabrics she carries – I love all those great colors! [Of course, Jackie also carries lots of other designer fabrics, but since we're talking solids, I'm going to stick to those for today!]

Anyway, would you like a chance to win this summery bundle of solids? Just leave a comment here (just one per person, please!). If you’d like, you could let me know your thoughts on solids – do you like adding them to your projects? And if so, do you have a favorite color? Mine changes all the time, but currently I think I’d have to say Kona Raisin. I do love it as a binding (most recently used here on my picnic quilt!)

Update – We have a winner! Congrats to #602, Jill!!

    Prints are what catch my eye, but I am definitely trying to build up my solids stash lately.

      I love adding solids to projects. My two most used colors are just barely off white and just about any shade of deep deep pink.

    Erin says:

    I love solids! I just used a bunch in my last quilt. Actually, I used 5 solids and only one print. No favorite color here, I love all color.

    Lindsey says:

    I always try to incorporate a few complementary solids into the patchwork quilts that I make – it seems to help the prints really shine!

    I am loving solids lately. my favorite changes all of the time :)

    duff says:

    I would like to use solids to accent my prints, but I’m not good at choosing them unless I find an exact match in the print; I wish I could say “oh this will look great with the rest of the colors!”

    I am like you as I lean toward prints but am challenging myself to improve my quilting and know solids would showcase that!. Thanks for the opp to win

    m-m-m-m-m Beautiful colors. This grouping would perk-up my stash. Using solids depend on the project I’m working on.

    I LOVE Kona Solids and get mine from jackie…she has great customer service and wonderful prices… I just finished a totally solid kona quilt for the StLouis Modern Quilt Guild challenge…

    Tanis says:

    I love solids, especially when they are paired with coordinating prints. I love your Kites in the Clouds quilt, so maybe I should give an all solid quilt a shot!

    I don’t have a lot of solids currently, but I’d love to win this giveaway and start incorporating them into my projects. Great colors!

    Kate says:

    I love Kona solids and the creativity that quilting with strictly solids demands! My favorite recent project was with Kona Mulberry, but I am a sucker for their Charcoal too.

    I am trying to incorporate more solids – I too find it hard to step away from prints.

    Carole Ann says:

    I’m just finishing up my first quilt experiment with mostly solids, and I LOVE the clean look of them. I’m definitely hooked, and I’m going to need to build my stash!

    Ginger McKenzie says:

    I, too, always tend to buy prints. I’ve just recently bought a solid to make something for my daughter… I have yet to cut it… I’m not sure if it’s b/c it’s a solid or what! :)

    brenda says:

    wow, i love those new colors. would be a great addition to my stash for a quilt this summer maybe!!

    Jessica C says:

    I love solids, but I think I’ve only been using them extensively for a year or so. I have two solids quilts planned. These would be a great help. I don’t know if I have a favorite, and I sure couldn’t tell you its name anyway. The two I use the most are an aqua and a green that is just off of kelly green — like a bright avocado. I’m no help, I know. Thanks for a lovely giveaway!

  20. 21
    Andrea says:

    I like that color combination! I am finding solids can be helpful to finish out a stack of printed fabrics, which is mostly what I use them for.

    Ictero says:

    I just picked up some brightly colored solids to incorporate into a quilt for a dear little guy who was recently diagnosed with leukemia. It was the only way I could think to make robots, sharks, rockets and dinosaurs all coming together in the same quilt. ;)

    melissa says:

    I fell in love with the kites in the clouds yesterday and it’s got me digging through my stack for solids. What a great give away!

    I love Kona solids…..I love the bright ones you have chosen….I love bright. Something about all that fun color gets me all happy inside….thanks for the giveaway and thanks Jackie!

    Anita says:

    I love Kona Solids…there is such a spectrum of colors and the quality is amazing! I have never done a quilt like yours with mostly solids, but I enjoy throwing them into the mix. This bundle is lovely and it’s so nice of Jackie to offer it up for this giveaway! Thanks!

  25. 26
    Nancy D. says:

    I have seen so many projects and QAL’s that use the solids more, so I have slowly started building my stash. I’m like you when it comes to a favorite color too. It all depends on what it is I’m working on. The colors in the giveway are all gorgeous. Take care!

    Ricki says:

    I use them mostly for backing, but that bundle is so beautiful it deserves to be featured front and center!

    Willa says:

    Have not done much with solids but am eager to do so. This selection is scrumptious. Love the names of the colors too…….

    Thanks!

    Denise says:

    I must admit don’t have a very good solid stash…but it is slowly growing. My EMQG is doing a solids challenge right now, so that has put me in the frame of mind of solids and seeing the beauty of working with just solids. Fun times!!

    Toni says:

    Lately I have found an immense love for solids, I just can’t get enough. Right now I love cerise and several of the green shades like cactus. Thanks!

    Lori says:

    LOVELOVELOVE Kona solids. Favorite color – today it’s Lupine, but that can change very easily! Sooooo many yummy colors to work with.

  31. 32
    Shannon says:

    Oh, solids. I always, always LOVE quilts that use them or are all solids, but then I always get distracted by the flashy prints. Either that or I just never accumulate a nice enough blend of colors to inspire me. Adding mo to my stash would definitely help that!

  32. 33
    amanda says:

    those would go great with some Amy Butler LOVE fabric that I have been holding on to!

  33. 34
    Natalie says:

    I’ve been using solids a lot more lately! I love having them in my stash, and they really do round out a quilt. I just bound a small quilt in raisin, too! I love it!

    I have a drawer just of solids. My color drawer.

    I haven’t moved on from prints yet but your quilt from yesterday actually did make me wonder if a transition is close :) I definately will try some in the future.

    elsa says:

    oh, I do like solids ~ I’ve done quite a few things in solid fabric and really enjoy putting them
    together. Our local quilt guild had a solid challenge and I did an applique and you’d never even
    know it was solid fabric.
    Love your quilt ~ the dark gray with the bright centers is eye popping!
    Thanks for the chance to win!

    Amanda says:

    I only sew once in a while, but I don’t have any solids in my stash – these would be a great start! :)

  38. 39

    I love solids! I would do everything in solids and use only prints as the complementary fabrics if I could. I have no favorite color to work with…since it really depends on the project. ;)

  39. 40

    I love using solids to mix in with a fabric line and I adore Kona cottons. My favorite color changes all the time, but I do find myself using the turquoise blues a lot of the time, and some limey greens, too. =)

  40. 41
    Amy says:

    I don’t have any solids, aside from white.
    Those are such pretty colors though, fingers crossed! :)

  44. 45
    Debbie says:

    Love solids! We were in my sons room last night, which is pretty colorful, and he said Mom, I’m missing orange and purple in here, so this would be perfect to make a wall handing with!!! :)

  45. 46
    briawna says:

    I’m like you, I’ve only recently discovered the beauty of solids. I have yet to make an all-solid quilt. This little bundle would be a perfect springboard to trying out an all-solid quilt. Beautiful colors! Thanks.

  46. 47
    Caitlin says:

    That bundle is bright and lovely! I’ve just recently started utilizing solids a lot more and I’m loving it! Thanks for the giveaway opportunity :)

    I like Kona eggplant, what a great color!

  48. 49
    Sequana says:

    I have a nice stash of solids now, and I love going “shopping” in there.

    You know, when I was working with an all solid quilt lately, I thot that Raisin looked just wonderful with almost everything else, so I vote with you there.

    Thx for the chance to win.

    Susan Snooks says:

    I’d really like to use more solids, and this would make a great start!

  50. 51
    KristyR says:

    I’ve tried lately to have some solids in the majority of quilts that I make – I think they help to balance out the busier fabrics and can often feature quilting details more. thanks for the giveaway!

  51. 52
    Emmy says:

    That is a beautiful bundle!!

    I love using colorful solids alongside prints, but I definitely use Kona cotton in Snow the most. It’s the perfect white for quilting!

    I would love to win these and if I did, I would give them away as a prize at our Guild Crayon Challenge reveal in July

    deb says:

    I, like you rarely bought solids. Usually only when i found one in the rem bin at Joanns. But in the last year I’ve been reading some of you young gals blogs and you all have turned my head with several of your lovely designs. I’ve bought a few yards, and fat quarters at my local quilt shop, Material Girls in LaPlata MD. I made my first quilt using solids last month for my new great nephew. I used two (baseball themed) prints, one plaid and two solids. It has a very clean feel to it. Thanks to all of you young girls teaching this old dog a new(everything old is new again) trick.
    I’d love to be able to add to the very meager solids that I own. Thanks to you and Jackie for offering to help :o)

    I have been slowly adding solids to my stash. I find the one I am using most right now is Kona Bone. (plain, I know :-) These colors are beautiful….thanks for the chance!

    Auntie Pami says:

    Funny, I was just going through my solids. Most of them were from the 80’s/90’s. Nothing like the colors available today. Guess I’ll have to visit Jackie (again)! I do like the Ash, but the colors above are like a box of jellie bellies. Mmmm good.

    Cara says:

    I definitely love me some solids. And what a lovely bundle this is! I’d give it a wonderful home!!

    I just bought some jewel tone solids, but have never really used them in my quilts before. This bundle would help me grow my collection!

  65. 66
    Shelley P. says:

    I would love to try more solids in a quilt – I think I’ve really only used solid white in a quilt top… Those colors are fabulous! Thanks so much!

  66. 67
    Cathy says:

    Thanks for the chance to win – I mainly use white and light pool blue as my solids but I need to branch out! I’m thinking of a sherbert colored quilt in my future with lots of oranges and pinks. I’m loving solids lately!

  67. 68
    Emily says:

    I would love more solids. Right now I’m off to buy some of the Kona charcoal grey to bind my latest quilt with. I love how it feels like a frame to a lovely picture.

    I have just started to collect quite a few solids and Kona are my favorites…so winning would be a great addition to my collection.

    I have become more fond of solids and find my quilts are more interesting when I use them. These Kona colors are just gorgeous. Thanks for a chance to win these.

  72. 73
    Linda says:

    These colors are beautiful! My go to color for Kona solids is black. I have been leaning a lot toward adding gray to a future project. It’s definitely time to add some color to my life! Thanks for the giveaway! Canton Village is a great online place to shop.

  73. 74
    Cassie says:

    I have made one quilt that was all solids and I loved it, it was a zig zag quilt and while I played with the idea of adding some prints, I’m glad I didn’t. I have been using Kona Espresso in a lot of things and I am loving it. I still like prints better, but it’s a nice change :)

    I could use some solids in my stash. These are wonderful!

    I’m starting to use solids more and more. In fact, I just bought some Kona Banana Cream. I was impressed with the subtle variations in shade that are available in Kona. Thanks for the giveaway.

    Bobbi Brekke says:

    I haven’t really worked with solids, not since my first quilt and my postage stamp quilt-a-long hosted by p.s. i quilt.

    I would love to add more solids! I hope I win and get the chance to try them out. :)

  77. 78
    Nancy says:

    OOO They are so lovely… I adore Kona solids. I always have a bolt of black, natural, and snow in my stash (which reminds me, I need black)

    Thank you so much for hosting this!

    I heart solids, I think they give perfection to a fabric collection. These colours are wonderful! I like also acid green…

    debra peck says:

    i never really thought of using solids in quilting until recently. i have found all sorts of inspiration on the internet from other quilters using solids and i am converted. i would love this to kick-start my solids use.

  80. 81
    Jocelyn says:

    I, like you, have mostly worked with prints, but in the last year or so I’ve been drawn to more solids. Favorite colors will depend on the quilt. Thanks for the fun giveaway. These colors would make a great addition to the stash ;-)

    i love solids! esp when they’re mixed in well with prints.

  82. 83
    Melinda says:

    I picked up some Kona Plum which I love and I often use white. I also recently used Kona Maize which is a soft breezy pale yellow. I love these bright vivid colors though!

  83. 84

    I made an all solids wonky log cabin quilt which I love. You can check it out here: http://ellisonlane.blogspot.com/2011/04/modern-solids-quilt.html

    Lately I’ve been really drawn to Kona Ash although there are so many amazing colors it is hard to choose. Thanks for the great giveaway opportunity!

  84. 85
    hueisei says:

    Yes. loves solid color.. Solid color and a bit of ugly or flower print can be a good combination :D
    Thanks for the chance.. Hopes I am the lucky one..
    Cheers :D

    Laura says:

    I love solids but will admit that I get frustrated choosing colors.

  86. 87
    Debra Miller says:

    I have done one Amish inspired quilt using all solids on black background that I love. But I tend to prints, with solids only as accent, especially since many of my quilts are give aways for new parents and babies. I like the strong, modern feel of your latest quilt in all solids. That gray is wonderful.

  87. 88
    Jackie says:

    ohh love those colors! i used to never use solids because prints are so fun but now i feel like i have a lot more freedom with solids and control over the color and overall look.

  88. 89
    Lindsey F. says:

    I love using solids as they make the design pop. Right now I’m drawn to colors that remind me of the Caribbean – blues & greens of the oceans and lucious tropical, citrusy colors.

  89. 90
    Josie McRazie says:

    I like to change it up! Never be the same twice! a few solids here a few prints there! And doesn’t it always happen that your favorite is whatever you are currently working on!!

    Katie says:

    I love solids. I feel like they anchor everything.

    I’m digging on grays and purples these days!

  92. 93
    Laura P says:

    I like combining an “inspiration print” – one that really catches my eye – and several solids that are either pulled directly from the colors of the print or ones that coordinate nicely. Just my style.

  93. 94
    Tong says:

    Like you, I hardly used any solids in my quilts and projects when I first started sewing a year and a half ago, but now I love using them! I’m currently working on a RK solids challenge quilt with my modern quilt guild, and it’s a fun all solid quilt: http://tingtongandthings.blogspot.com/2011/06/2-quilt-tops-in-one-weekend.html

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  94. 95
    Betty van Os says:

    Hi Ashley,
    What a great giveaway!
    I’m appreciating the solids more and more: they add PEACE to a quilt, a place where the eye can rest.
    I love tangerine, I love Mango but these preferences also change over time.
    Or do they change according to my mood?
    Whatever: I love’m!

  95. 96
    Beth Lehman says:

    oooh, la, la – such lovely solids!! i have really enjoyed seeing more solids used in “modern quilting” and with prices rising, they are a good option – and the variety is amazing!

    Flying Blind says:

    Thought it was a little early for Max to be on to solids already!!

  97. 98
    Jenny says:

    I have been sewing for a while but only recently started quilting. As I’ve been looking at different quilts for inspiration I’ve noticed that the ones that I’m drawn to have a good amount of solids in them. I would love to add some solids to my collection. I don’t have a favorite at this point but I’ve been liking quilts with grey sashing.

  98. 99
    Nicholas says:

    I love using solids in my quilts – my current favorite is charcoal!

    Susan C. says:

    Oh, I love these colors! I’m building quite a stash of solids in my stash, and I have several ideas in mind for using them. It’s just finding the time to sit down and get started!

  100. 101
    Jenn says:

    For some reason I always think of solids as more supporting fabrics but now that you’ve put the idea in my head I think I see an all-solids quilt in my future.

  101. 102
    Leathy says:

    I love your all solids quilt!! It would be fun to try a quilt with more solids.

  102. 103
    Brenda says:

    These new colors in the Kona line really inspire me. I like the boldness of working with solids, and I’m in love with the range of blue-greens in the Kona line. thanks for the chance!

  103. 104

    I love solids. I do love prints too, but usually just at smaller embellishments. Ant that yellow blows my mind.

  104. 105
    Emily says:

    I really like solids. I haven’t used them a whole lot yet, but I can definitely see them in my future.

  105. 106
    Misa says:

    I love working with solids, it’s nice to have a bold flashy print but I love when people can work with just solids and make something just as eye-catching. Those colors are beautiful!

  106. 107
    Chris says:

    I usually have a solid or two in my projects. I’d love to win some for my small stash.

    solids. something I definately need more of in my stash. I love solid quilts I’ve seen!

  109. 110
    Jenny says:

    I’m getting ready to use some solids in a quilting project centered around embroidered panels, but I’m a new quilter, so I can’t say I use them or have a stash. Thanks for the giveaway!

    Jenny says:

    Such clear, crisp colours. Yet another sources of inspiration

  111. 112

    i think my eye prefers solids in with prints so that it doesn’t look so…. busy, and the prints can shine more, without getting lost in each other.

    Anna says:

    I love solids and shot cottons. Pure and simple, Anna

  113. 114
    Kate says:

    I like to use solids to stretch a pack of a designer fabric — like my Heather Ross fat quarter pack that I wanted to make into a quilt but needed a bit more yardage. I don’t use solids so much on their own yet except for white. I do think I need more of a stash of solids for quick sewing projects.

    I love using solids. My favorite to add in at the moment is either white or charcoal but I can see a lot of cerise in my future.

  116. 117
    katie says:

    I have been looking at a lot of quilts in museums and I went to the red & white show in NYC and I have become SO inspired to start working with more solids and simpler color palettes instead of my usual Kaffe style quilts. Love these solids.

  117. 118
    Connie Teasley says:

    I do use solids. Especially white, but do like solid colors when I make a quilt with blended fat quarters.

  118. 119
    Stephanie W says:

    I have never really used solids, but after seeing so many fab quilts on blogs, I want to try my hand at it but am wondering where to begin? I especially love the quilts with prints and then white all around it. Thanks for a great giveaway!

  119. 120
    Laura T says:

    I like a pretty even combination of solids and prints. My first quilt was 80% solids, and the other 20% was almost solid prints. So I guess maybe I like them more than I think I do.

  120. 121
    Shannon says:

    I absolutely LOVE solids! I love them in quilt tops, I love them for binding…LOVE! It’s hard to pick a favorite though. I’m currently using the Kona Purple People Eater and Pretty in Pink bundles for different projects – I’m really into some of the darker shades from each…and I can’t seem live without Kona Coal…

    kristin says:

    I am SUCH a solids girl. I don’t know what it is – all the possibilities? Right now, I’m hankering for an all yellow quilt. I just need to get this baby born so I can get started!

    Solids haven’t played a huge part in my quilting in the past but I am being swayed by all the lovely stuff I keep seeing in blogs – yummy bundle.

    Such pretty colors. As for a favorite color, it seems to change constantly depending on what fabric I just fell in love with. Thanks for the chance to win!

    Lindsay says:

    I would love to add more solids into the mix! I don’t buy enough of them but I love the way they look in a quilt.

  125. 126

    Ever since meeting Gwen Marston and Jean Wells and having a chance to take a design class featuring solids, I am crazy for solids in all colors. I would have to say my favorites are brights and jewel tones..but I love them all!

  126. 127
    Jenn says:

    I’m pretty new to quilting, so I definitely have a lot more prints than solids- would love to round out my stash!
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  127. 128

    I would love to use more solids in my quilts. Since I’m in Australia and buy online, I’m not sure of the shades. I need to get some colour cards but not sure which ranges have swatch cards. I’m quite particular about colours matching properly so buying sight unseen is like playing Russian roulette. I like Raisin and thinking about using it with Hunky Dory but need to do some more research.

    the only solid i’ve ever used is white. or off-white. never thought much about it, but i’d like to give ‘adding solids to a quilt top’ a try!
    thanks!
    love your blog!

    Elizabeth says:

    So pretty! I just finished my first quilt, which had no true solids. Then I put together a quilt top for charity that featured some solids and I fell in love. I don’t know the shade of green that I’m madly in love with but it’s a deep jewel tone. Thanks for the chance!

    I agree. Solids made the prints sing.

    Greta says:

    I have just become a big fan of solids..especially when I see such beautiful colors like these out there! I am a huge pattern fan but solids are now becoming my newest addiction! As for favorite color? I don’t have one..I just really love bright and beautiful colors!

  133. 134

    I use solids a lot! My favorite changes too. I love all the greys but lately I’m hooked on Mustard :)

    I’m actually more of a solids person! I love seeing how well different and unexpected combinations of colors can go together.

  136. 137

    I’m currently working on a “solids only” quilt using a slightly modified Plain Spoken pattern as my inspiration. I love earth tones so the quilt will be made from a Grounded Kona Cotton FQB by R. Kaufman.

  137. 138
    Laura Martin says:

    Surprisingly, I love solids! But this is a fact I’m aware of recently. I thought prints were predominant in my stash, but after taking a look at it I realized that solids win by numbers. Above all, the yellow range solids. Btw, thanks for the chance to win this giveaway.

    I love solids too, very inspiring as far as creating colour palettes go. I don’t really have one favourite, I’m a sucker for the turquoise family.

  140. 141

    I haven’t made very many quilts, and none using solely solids. However, I grew up near Amish country, and their quilts are typically all solids– and they are stunningly beautiful. I love the geometric patterns, the contrast of black with bright solids, the simplicity… Just seeing that stack of fat quarters gets my mind churning with ideas!

    Karyn Ashley-Smith says:

    I have to admit that when I am out and wander into a fabric store, I don’t drool over the solids….however, I have learned that you can’t mix print on print on print very successfully. You need some solids to set your patterns off. THank you !

  147. 148
    Ursula Wonnacott says:

    I have to say I haven’t tried using solids in my quilts. I tend to buy prints. After seeing so many beautiful solids being used, I’d love to give it a try. It seems they add so much. Thanks for the chance to win these gorgeous colours.

    allie says:

    I love reading your blog…it’s what got me to buy a sewing machine and start teaching myself to quilt! I love all of the patterned fabric that you use in your quilts, and am always so bummed to find out that they are ones from your collection that they don’t make anymore! I never really thought about solids really when I started to buy and collect fabric, but lately I’ve been thinking I probably need to add some just to have on hand. I think my favorites are greys and browns right now…anyway thanks for all of your inspiration :)

  163. 164
    nettie says:

    i love solids! but I don’t get the urge to buy them like I do with prints–too bad since they are so much cheaper. My favorite changes depending on the quilt, there are just so many great ones.

  164. 165
    Diane says:

    I tend to buy prints…so I could use some solids!

    Like you, I used to be all about pattern, but I now see how solids can highlight great colours and patterns. My favourites just now? Kona Ivory and Kona Ash.

    Sally says:

    My goal for my annual trip to Hancock’s of Paducah this May was to start stashing some solids! I never have what I need. I seldom work with solids only, but I have an idea for a quilt that would be yellow and gray solids. Thanks always for your inspiration and for the chance to win!

    I have practically no solids since I love color and pattern so much…but these look fun, esp. the linen blend. I’d love to win! Thanks for offering the giveaway.

  182. 183
    Kelly says:

    I love all fabric, but sometimes I just want the stark, graphic, strong impact of all solids. And then I want solids that serve as a nice quiet foundation for fun prints. I know, I am fickle! This bundle you show looks good enough to eat! And my fave is Kona Snow, a great white, not too beige, not too cold, just right.

  183. 184
    Barb B says:

  188. 189
    Erin M. says:

    My last two quilts have been only solids, but that’s a first for me. I think it’s probably some Cherry House inspiration, but also just me realizing how fast some prints get outdated and maybe solids are a more “timeless” thing to work with. I’d love to have more. Thanks for the the giveaway.

    Violeta Murray says:

    I agree that solids are overlooked. I love all the bright colors available, but right now, I’m in LOVE with gray. Probably the Kona Coal. :) Thanks!!

    Susan V. says:

    I love solids, but I have yet to use them much. My son was helping me organize my fabrics the other day, and funily enough, he commented that I don’t have many solids, so I guess I need to remedy that situation!

  192. 193
    Betsy says:

    I’ve really only used solids for sashing, but you are are convincing me I need to give them a larger role!

  193. 194
    Alexis says:

    I love solids! I tend to use them mixed with either a one-tone print or a semi-solid. I’m working on just such a quilt now. As for colors, I am a huge fan of Kona coal and slate, they compliment so many other colors, especially jewel and acid tones.

  194. 195
    Alisa says:

    I like solids but I can’t see myself making a quilt of only solids. I like print too much.

    Diane says:

    I ooh & aah over solids and include them in many quilts, BUT I haven’t taken the plunge yet to an all solid quilt! … one of these days I’m gonna pull out only solids & go for it :) thanks for the chance to win!

    I don’t use solids that often, but I have plans to! Thanks for the giveaway, I don’t know how you do it these days with Max and the blog and the sewing!!! OH I was going to mention yesterday and forgot, but remember that Heather Ross print on spoonflower with the kites? Totally reminded me of your quilt. I know you already had a quilt back in mind, but maybe if you make another, you can use that print for the back. Not even sure if it’s still available though… sorry, I’m so random today!

    Tabatha says:

    In desperate need of solids, I’ve been so absorbed in trying to collect prints I’ve completely ignored the lovely solids and Kona has some beauties! Turquoise or Bahama Blue would be my favorite Kona colour at the moment as I’m working on my first quilt with this gorgeous hue.

  206. 207
    Sarah K says:

    Mint green! Solids or patterns, am just loving all things mint green!

  207. 208

    I’ve always loved solids and had to resort to dyeing them myself in the past. I’m so happy to see the variety of solids available now. Jackie’s are gorgeous!!

  208. 209
    Anne says:

    I started off looking at Amish quilts, so of course I love solid colours. It actually took some time for me to come back to prints! Fave colour for solids would be a red that would really pop out if used sparingly. There are some lovely Amish quilts that use a lot of blue tones with just a bit of red and it looks great.

  209. 210
    Erica says:

    I never really used solids because I thought prints were what made a quilt dynamic, but I’ve come to love solids and use them more often.

    Janelle says:

    I’m always looking through my stash, wondering where all the solids are and thinking I should stock up. Those colors are so vibrant and the linen/cotton blend looks really nice. I wonder how it would sew up in clothes?

  213. 214
    amorette says:

    i guess i am in the minority in that i love soilds and have worked with them a lot, and i actually use kona in pure white on almost every quilt! usually, the rest of the design is very color-heavy and busy, so i go with white sashing. i am learning from you that there are others choices- i love all the grey!

  214. 215
    Julila says:

    I have not been using solids. I’m still about the prints but I think solids enhance the design sometimes and the prints. With such great colors and quality of fabric now I’m interested in using solids. I take that back I have used both black and white solids. I also used a teal once on a stacked coins quilt.

  215. 216

    I was participating in Modern Solids QA and Bella Parade recentl and thats what got me hooked on solids – its great! Im building up my stash, so a FQ-bundle would help me on the way :o) Thanks for the chance!

  222. 223
    Wilma says:

    These colours are lovely. My fabric colour choice usually depends on the season & the mood I’m in; I try to do different colours with each new quilt. I just finished a quilt top in brown, teal, green and cream solids and it looks lovely. So if I win, I would definitely be using these colours in a very fun summer quilt.

    I love solids! But so far, I have only used white and snow, I don’t think that really counts. :) I have a stack of solids to coordinate with my central park fq stack, that I am just waiting to cut into.

  226. 227
    Toni says:

    I haven’t been much for using solids-but I’m slowly trying to work them in. I really love the coral color as well as the orange.

  227. 228

    My current Kona Cotton favourite colour is Kona Ocean. I used it at Christmas time when sewing pillowcases and I’m using it now in some children’s quilts.

  228. 229

  234. 235
    Robyn G says:

    I love solids. I find that prints sometimes complicate the quilt. You may like the color in the print, but the picture/design is not what you want. My favorite color is yellow, and it always has been. Sometimes, I forget that other people don’t like yellow, because I get offended when hear people say, “Oh yuck!” to it.

  235. 236
    Erin Marie says:

    I’ve been wanting to do an all solids quilt for awhile. I did a pillow case for my husband – a pixelated picture of Link from Zelda, which is pretty awesome, but not the same. :-)

  243. 244
    Beth says:

    I’ve started using solids more and more… I’ve completed one quilt using only solids and have a second one on the cutting table. Definitely a fun way to add variety to a quilting project. : )

  244. 245
    Alyssa says:

    I really like almost every color, but lately the solid color combination of tealish blue, celery green, and a light-medium gray are my go-to’s! I’m actually making a quilt with them right now, and sashing with some Kona (chocolate I think, but don’t quote me because I’m not even sure if there is a Kona Chocolate). I love it!

  245. 246
    Patricia K says:

    I’ve always been attracted to the solids because of their beautiful palette, but have used them sparingly. I’m planning to start an Amish-inspired ‘flying geese’ wallhanging soon as a housewarming gift. Thank you for offering the giveaway!

    Jane says:

    I love using solids! My current favorite (which I just got in the mail and haven’t had a chance to use yet) is Kona Lupine, a medium purple, and also Kona Ochre which is an orangey-yellow.

    Hannah says:

    I don’t have many solids in my stash. I mostly sew clothes and use the scraps for quilts, but most of my scraps are prints. Would love to have some solids to mix things up a bit.

  255. 256
    Ashley says:

    I’m working on my first quilt right now and it’s all solids. I love they way it’s coming together and I’d be so excited to have more wonderful solid cotton!

  256. 257

    I am always drawn to prints, but I am starting to slowly build my solids collection! My current favorite is Kona Coal (I know, not very original, but I can’t help what I love :D )

  257. 258
    Ruth says:

    I really love using solids and these ones are particularly beautiful colours!! Thanks for the opportunity!

  258. 259
    Tami says:

    I have some solid fabrics and I try to add a little bit of solid to each and every quilt. I remember watching Alex Anderson’s quilt show on HGTV when I was first starting to quilt and she said that solid fabrics give the eye some where to “rest” as you are looking at a quilt. I have always remembered that!

    Cherie says:

    I am just starting to get into solids…they do add so much to a quilt! Thanks for the chance!

  260. 261
    Jackie says:

    I would love to win these! I use to never use solids in my quilts either. Now I’m all about the solids.

  261. 262
    Jennyroo says:

    I am trying to get better at using solids in quilts, but I am mostly using prints still… would love to start a solids pile in my stash!

  262. 263
    Erin says:

    I used to think solids played second string to prints, until I saw your Kites in the Clouds quilt this week. What understated beauty! I think it’s important to have some solids in every quilt, and I’d love to add these Kona pieces to my stash! Thanks for a great giveaway.

  263. 264
    Miki says:

    I love solids. I really like how they make designs pop more so than printed designs.

  264. 265
    Gidget says:

    I want to use more solids, I really like the quilts I’ve been seeing with white. I know that sounds boring, but the white really brings out the other prints!

  265. 266
    tiffany says:

    I’ve only used prints in the nine quilts I’ve made so far. My current project actually features some solid white. I would really love to start sewing with solids. It’s been hard to start my stash, though, because there are so many from which to choose! Thanks for the chance to bulk it up!

  266. 267
    jess flegel says:

    I’m definitely still in the beginning stages of incorporating solids, but already have piles of projects in mind!

  267. 268
    Sarah C. says:

    I use a lot of solids, to “unite” the donated fabrics we receive for our quilt ministry. My favorites/staples? Kona White, Coal, Ash, and Espresso. But I just made a quilt for my hubby using the Poseidon bundle of Kona cottons – and it’s yummy!!

  268. 269
    Netta says:

    I have not used many solids yet. I have a pattern cut and ready to stitch in my to-do box. Would love to use more. The colors you picked are great.

  269. 270

    I love adding solids to a quilt…it makes the prints pop and adds dimension to a quilt!! Thanks for the chance to win these lovely solids!

    just bought some kona grey which I’m looking forward to trying out! Mainly so far I’ve used solids as backing.

    A quilt without solids is like a pizza without cheese! I love this sweet summer bundle!

  272. 273
    Linda says:

    LOVE LOVE SOLIDS! LOVE KONA TOO! INCLUDE THEM IN EVERY PROJECT! THANKS SO FOR SHARING!

  273. 274
    Dawn says:

    Love them colors…never really tried to use solids…scares me a bit…BUT those colors look almost edible..will have to try some soon!

    I love solid bindings and I think they are so great as ‘frames’! Thanks!

    Becki says:

    Solids rock my world! I love them. Thanks for the giveaway.

  276. 277
    Jennifer says:

    I recently used plain old brown as part of a backing. I quilted it with a random arrangement of overlapping circles (tracing all sizes of my stainless mixing bowls). Having an interesting quilting pattern makes solids that much more fun!

  277. 278
    Penny Gold says:

    I love solids so much that I’ve started dyeing my own, so I can get just the color I want. But I have a stash of commercials as well, and would love to add these!

  278. 279
    Jessica says:

    Thanks for the giveaway! I seen more and more solids. Although I haven’t tried anything in just solids, I will have to one of these days!

  279. 280
    Melanie says:

    I mostly use white, but I have run into quilty situations where I think: “This is where fun colored solids would come in handy!” I think solids are a good way to tie patterned fabrics together!

  280. 281
    J Strizzy says:

    I’m almost done with my first all-solids quilt. Like you, I was most drawn to all the great prints when I started quilting, but I’ve recently started to appreciate solids.

  281. 282
    Deb says:

    Solids are wonderful. I like using a solid to tie in all of the colors of a quilt.

  282. 283
    Blue says:

    Love your kites! The colors really pop against the Kona Coal background. This GiveAway of Rainbow solid FQ is very nice of you. Thanks! ;P

    April Mae says:

    Hey there,

    I love solids. However as much as I love them I tend to use marbles more than solid. This color combo you have is very pretty together.

  284. 285
    Liz says:

    I Love solids but always seem to get excited about and buy prints. My favorites are blue-green, but I’m trying to branch out ;)

  285. 286
    Jody says:

    Personally my favourite quilts are made from only solids. So modern! Thanks for a great giveaway!!!

  286. 287
    yvonne says:

    I have not made a quilt using only solids, but I always include a solid in my quilt. Currently I love gray.

  287. 288
    Jennifer says:

    honestly i’ve never used solids, but these colors are so captivating that they make me want to give it a shot!

  288. 289
    Jackie says:

    I generally use white Kona as sashing/borders to make the colours of my patterned fabrics really pop…I love the quality and ‘feel’ of Kona cotton…but their luscious colours are an added bonus…I recently purchased some Kona Honeydew which I am going to use as sashing in a quilt with Laurie Wisbrun’s Urban Circus range in the Spring colour way…

  289. 290
    Gill says:

    I seem to be liking solids more and more – especially the yummy colours!

  290. 291
    Mimi says:

    Love those bright and vibrant colours… I am trying to built my solids stash this bundle would be awesome! Thanks for the chance!!

  291. 292
    Paige says:

    I have no solids in my stash. Horrible. I do find myself buying Kona Coal quite a bit. I love it with pinks.

  292. 293
    Hanna says:

    I picture a pretty picnic quilt with these beautiful solids!! Please count me in for this giveaway!! Thanks!

  293. 294
    stacy says:

    I have been using solids lately to frame some of the fantastic prints out there, and I would like to explore more projects with solids exclusively. I love the variations in shot cottons, and usually go for Kona Snow and Ash.

  294. 295
    Jennifer says:

    I was like you and never used solids. In fact, I’ve just started to incorporate solids into my quilts!

  295. 296
    Cynthia says:

    I think it’s common to start quilting with a love of prints. Solids are like the negative space.
    As you create you realize the importance of solid.

  296. 297
    MollyP says:

    I incorporate solids into pretty much all my quilts. My brain needs them to give it frames and lines of focus. The idea of a complete top out of only solids!? Way too scary for me. Thanks for the giveaway, Jackie!

  297. 298
    Kristin says:

    I feel like I just recently discovered solids- I love the modern look they give a quilt. Cannot choose a favorite!

  298. 299
    May says:

    I’m just starting to use solids and do plan on using them much more in the future. the combo of solids and prints really compliment each other in designs I find.

  299. 300
    Kelly Irene says:

    I never paid attention to solids until I started quilting last year. Now I love them!! Our local quilt shops don’t many solids (why not?!?!), so I’m always trying to sneak them into other online orders! Thank you for the chance to win this beautiful stack :)

  300. 301
    Amy says:

    Prints are what catches my eye. I’m somewhat new to quilting, so I’m still building up my stash of solids.

  301. 302
    Rachel says:

    Oh, I LOVE solids! My preference would be to only quilt with solids. I like patterns, but find it too complicating.

  302. 303
    Brooke says:

    I’m a big fan of solids though I have yet to do a quilt using only solids. It’s definitely on the ‘to do’ list however. And in terms of a favorite color – anything green!

  303. 304
    Kim says:

    Oh I love blue……all shades of the Kona blues together……..just delicious.
    Just look at the Amish quilts for their fantastic use of solids….all shades together, they are just remarkable!
    thanks so much for the chance to win these beautiful KONAs !

    Happy sewing

    felicity says:

    I’ve *just* finished an all-solids quilt for my modern guild’s Kona Solids Challenge. My favourite solid right now is Kona Medium Gray. I love how it goes with *everything*! Thank you to you and CVQW for this great giveaway!

  305. 306
    Dana says:

    That is a lovely stack of fabrics. I think solids are a big part of any quilt. My favorite right now is lime green, it just seems to be working with everything. Thanks.

  306. 307
    Jane says:

    I love using solids! My current favorite is Kona Lupine, a medium purple which just came in the mail and I haven’t had a chance to do anything with it…and also Kona Ochre which is an awesome orangey-gold color!

  307. 308
    Brianna says:

    Solids allow me to calm my eyes and focus in on the prints. Every manufacturer has a different color tone which make finding solids just as much fun as prints.

  308. 309
    Amy says:

    I love patterned fabrics but definitely include solids as well and sometimes use only solids. I find that as your quilting matures, you are more willing to add in solids…just like gardening. As my gardening matures, I am more likely to consider adding a foliage plant over a flower one!

  309. 310
    Donna says:

    Those fabrics are fabulous! I have some solids, but haven’t put them in my quilts much–guess I waiting for a very special project!

  310. 311
    Darcy says:

    I have just fallen in love with solids lately – Kona is my stand-by but I love Amy Butler’s solids as well. Oh and even though they aren’t technically one color I so adore Kaffe Fausett’s shot cottons too. Thanks for the lovely give away!

  311. 312
    Encyclopedia says:

    I am being drawn to solids more and more…perhaps i shall consider a go at only solids…smiles. the kona colors are oh so yummy….

  312. 313
    Heather M. says:

    I’ve never really been a big fan of solids until recently after seeing some amazing things done with them. I’ve definitely changed my mind though now and would love to start using them more.

  313. 314

    Yummmm….that looks like citrus and sunshine all wrapped together! Wow, could I have fun with those fat quarter!

    Dawn W says:

    I’m a bit scared of solids still – they show so much – but I would love to try your kite quilt, so maybe that will break me in to the solid world. :)

  317. 318
    Jodi Sellers says:

    I used to never use solids but now I am loving them. I would love to win this bundle, they would be great for my Bottled Rainbows quilt I want to do. Thanks so much for the giveaway!

    I love that there are so many quality designer solids available now. I love them for sashing and borders, and for coorinating with a print for bags and purses. THANKS for the chance!

    belinda says:

    WOW….it was a l-o-n-g way down here to comment!! I’m like you on the solids. I always bought prints until I started quilting and became a fan of Tonya over at Lazy Gal Quilter/Unruly Quilter and Gwen Marston. I now try to keep my solids well stocked!

  323. 324
    Elisa says:

    I use solids to accentuate prints; without them, the patterns tend to get overwhelmed and lost as they compete with each other. When I have a print that I want to really stand out (or that was so expensive I could only afford a small amount of), I like to do a mostly solid quilt with small amounts of the print.

    Solids are vital, as they break up the business, and make the final product more “clean” and modern looking, less busy.

  324. 325
    Cherise says:

    I love solids & prints! I believe the solids are great at setting off the prints… definitely a great combo! Don’t really have a favorite color as they change all the time! These solids are beautiful! Thanks for hosting the giveaway! :)

  325. 326
    Sarah says:

    I love to use solids to really set off special prints. And maybe I’m boring, but I love solid backings on quilts because you can really see the quilting stitch pattern, which is one of my favorite parts!

  326. 327
    Megan says:

    I’ve been working on the solids quilt challenge that has been making the rounds of the Modern Quilt Guilds. I love how it’s turning out and wouldn’t have though to make an all solids quilt on my own. Except… I have been loving the rainbow/ombre quilts that have been popping up.

    Count me in for a chance to win some yummy solids. Those look lovely!

  327. 328
    Jennifer Phillips says:

    I am one of those people that didn’t realize how beneficial strategically placed solids could be until I got done with my first couple of quilts. Lately I’ve been using a lot more solids, and love making quilts with bright bold solids.

  328. 329
    Patty says:

    I am trying to use more solids becuase it adds a nice resting place to all the busy prints. Currently I love the primary colors.

  329. 330

    I’ve got a new appreciation for solids after completing my modern quilt guild Kaufman challenge quilt. I used a new to me colour as background: celery. I love it! It is a nice change from charcoal/ash/grey.

  330. 331
    Catherine Wilson says:

    love the flavours, I mean colours. Would love to use them!

  331. 332
    Erica says:

    I LOVE solids and do use them in my quilts. My favorites are cerise and ash. I have never tried raisin, I will have to check it out!

  332. 333
    Julianna says:

    I love solids – especially limes (my fave is Chartreuse). Jackie has great selection of Kona and what is also important: color bundles.

  333. 334
    Suzanne says:

    Love solids but have just recently started collecting them! Love any color in the blue family! thanks for the give away!

    I like solids. Anything green is my favorite!

  335. 336
    Kate says:

    I usually just use solids for background/borders/sashing…but I’ve never used any of the Kona solids. I’ve always bought cheapy solids.

    I’d love to win these and give them a try!

    Thanks for the chance!

  336. 337
    Kristin says:

    I love solids and have several all solid quilts in mind. My favorite solids, because it is just so versatile, is coal.

  337. 338
    Patti says:

    I just love Kona solids and I couldn’t pick a favorite because I just love all the ones I have and want one day to have them all.
    Thanks for the chance to win these.

  338. 339
    K says:

    Never been big on solids. Only recently turned to lots of white. Would love to give it a try, though.

  339. 340
    Teresa Block says:

    I almost always use solids in my projects. They really help your eyes rest and enjoy the prints. Too many prints thrown together wear me out! I especially love this grouping of colors…. they make my mouth water!

  340. 341
    Kristal says:

    I need some solids to tie in with some quilts in the future.

  341. 342

    Gorgeous colours! the mango is to die for….

  343. 344
    Ruth says:

    just completed a solids quilt along, and taking part in a solids challenge, I love them! Don’t have a favourite, because they change mood in combination if you know what I mean? The think I like most about solids, is the importance that *what you do with them* has, they’re less forgiving on your piecing and more timeless.

  344. 345
    Linda in PA says:

    I’ve just started to work with solids. Thanks for the giveaway. I’d love to win this group of solids.

  345. 346
    char says:

    I like solids and prints but not in the same quilt. If I make a quilt with prints I might use 1 solid but that’s it, no more. When I make a quilt with solids ,it’s solids only.

  346. 347
    Nancy Sue says:

    I guess I’m the dull banana in the bunch, as I like browns and tans, however, after peeking at your picnic quilt, I love the Kona Raisin!!! I may have a new favorite!

  347. 348
    Carla says:

    Aqua! Lime green! Especially together! And red, pink, and orange together are wonderful too!

  348. 349
    Lindsay F says:

    I adore solids. My favorite quilt is entirely made of solids. However I have found that I initially ordered most of my solids in 1/2 yards but full yards are so much more practical for when I use them in a project. Oh well, we all learn somehow.

  349. 350

    I love using solids in quilts now, but initially, like you, I wasn’t as keen. My favourite also changes, depending on what I’m working on, but I do seem to be drawn to the blues – aqua and turquoise particularly!

  350. 351
    Andrea says:

    Oh, what lovely colors! The first (and, so far, only) “big” quilt I sewed is made entirely from solids. I used the colors in my living room (couch, pillows, wooden furniture) for inspiration, and it turned out great.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  351. 352
    Sally says:

    I’ve just started buying more solids. I love how they can bring so much more to quilts. I made a table runner yesterday which I know I wouldn’t of finished had I not owned some solids. I’m looking forward to making more blankets this summer with my solids. Thanks for the chance to win those great bright colors! Plus cute little boy, I love seeing photos.

  352. 353
    Jenniffier says:

    I too would love to win this :)

  353. 354

    Beautiful colors! I mostly use white as a solid, but should branch out a bit!

  354. 355

    Love all the pastel colours! Solids are just great to go with any floral prints. I love to work with solids.

    Love the new Kona solid colors. I think Mango is my favorite!

  357. 358

    Zarina says:

    I am at the end of completing a top using 2/3 solids. Here in Malaysia, I still have difficulty sourcing out good quality solids without buying outside. I might have one but its a bit off the way and i have no idea which part of town its in (even though its in one of those ‘famous’ part of town).

  360. 361
    Amber H says:

    There’s very few printed lines I like out there, so I prefer creating with solids! I think they make a bolder statement then a quilt or project made from prints.

    Dell says:

    I use solids all the the time.

  362. 363
    Amy says:

    I mostly use prints, but I do have some solids and hope to incorporate more of them in my sewing.
    Pretty much any shade of green is my fave, but I also gravitate towards oranges and mustard yellows.

  363. 364

    I use mostly batiks, but am starting to appreciate solids more. This is a gorgeous collection of solids. Would love to win it.

  364. 365
    sntbosch says:

    I don’t use very many solids. But I love your kites in a cloud quilt! Thanks for a chance.

  365. 366
    Candy says:

    Lime green! And I love making blocks and projects from solids that coordinate…and these are perfect! Thank you!

  366. 367
    Jen Eskridge says:

    I really like solids in quilts and I don’t mind solids mixed with prints. Oooh… as for colors- probably a pale blue + orange. At least that is the phase I’m going through now.

  367. 368
    Kara H. says:

    I don’t have any solids in my stash! Whoops! I definitely need to add some because they really do add a lot to a project.

  368. 369
    Jenny says:

    I love the vibrant colors!

  369. 370
    Holly says:

    I love solids-I made a quilt for our bed recently using kona solid jelly rolls and charm square. I like how clean and simple solids are.

  370. 371
    Suzanne says:

    Hi Ashley, I have always loved your Flying Farfale quilt and now Kites in a Cloud, the grey background really makes the solids pop. I have recently started building my stash of solids and my favorite right now is lime green.

  371. 372
    Flaun says:

    I’m in love with Medium Gray, so if I had to pick only one, that would probably be it. I’ve used it in a number of quilts and bought a partial bolt a couple of months ago. Just recently made a purchase of a whole bolt (15 yards!) of white. There are a number of colors in the green/blue family I’d really like to try on my Kona Color Card, too.

  372. 373
    Carla says:

    I love solids in a quilt — I think that they really set off the patterns well. I really like a sunny yellow.

  373. 374
    Charlene says:

    I’ve been quilting for about 25 years, but took a 1 year break and have been back at it for almost a year now … wow, things changed so much … solids! I’ve yet to do anything with them, but the new patterns and quilts that are coming out are amazing with the solids and I can’t wait to get on the train! They are clean, make everything pop. I love color, brights and jewel tones are amazing … but my all time favorite is black, everything contrasts so nicely against it and just sparkles. Thanks for the giveaway!

  374. 375
    chris says:

    traditionally, i have used solids for backing only. but being recently inspired by the red & white quilt exhibit that was up i am starting to love the idea of all solids quilts. i currently have too many projects on the list which i’ve already bought fabric for, so not sure when i will actually get to start an all solids quilt!

    i’m like you, my choices in color constantly change. but right now i am in a patriotic red, white & blue phase (always comes at this time of year)

  375. 376
    Bea says:

    I love using solids in my projects. My two favorites to use are a just barely off-white and any deep deep pink.

  376. 377

    celery! love that one! and love your use of solids, i just finished my first quilt top with all solids and am hooked- can’t wait to make more!

    Shanon says:

    I love the delicious colors of this bundle. I love solids because they give a beautiful stage to other lovely prints. Extremely busy quilts aren’t my style so solids play a strong role in my quilting style.

  379. 380
    star says:

    I usually only use solids on the back of my quilts, so the only solids in my stash are leftovers from previous quilts. Maybe this will be an encouragement to use some solids on the fronts too.

    Irina says:

    I like warm colours, thaks for the chance!

    Luci D. says:

    I love to use solids in a quilt to give my eyes a “place to rest”. Thanks for the chance!

  382. 383
    Barbara G says:

    I love solids – i like to sue them to ‘frame’ prints or as trim in my sewing.

  383. 384
    Laura Baker says:

    Love using solids to compliment prints, but your kite quilt gave me lots of inspiration to use only solids. Sometimes the print is overwhelming. Thanks for offering a lovely stash additive.

    I have the cutest pinwheel pattern I’ve been dying to make and these would be beautiful in it. :) Thanks for the opportunity!

    I love solids – in fact my first quilt was made of just solids, I feel it can give lots of lovely space for quilting designs. Thank you C

    Tracy says:

    I just finished a twin bed sized quilt all from solids in greens and charcoal. But I did the binding with a dotty print just to give it a bit of interest. I’m currently working on another done in all solids in purples, ash and charcoal, but I have a black/white pinstripe lined up for the binding. I think solids are great and used alone can be very striking, used with prints can calm down a busy design. I don’t have a favorite color because it is constantly changing with my moods, but that bundle makes me think of fruit sherbert! So fun!

    Thanks!

    I am where you used to be…all about prints. Usually, the closest I get to a solid is a print that reads like a solid, although I do own some white. These colors are pretty enticing and inspiring, though! And i did bookmark your kite and dinner date posts Thanks for the give away!!

    I love solids but I have barely any in my stash so I could really use some!!!

    Heather says:

    I love solids – I made everyone a quilt for Christmas and was stumped for a “masculine” style to make my husband. I ended up making a stacked quilt with three long vertical stacks out of mostly solids – earthy greens, blues, stone all from Kona’s line – and I love it. I plan to make more for the kids but of course with more colorful solids. I think solids add so much to a quilt. I quilt for color and often fairly monochromatic so colids add a lot to that end. Anyway, favorites that show up often are Kona Medium Grey, Kona Grapemist (in daughter’s), and Kona Bahama Blue (son’s stuff). Have a great weekend!

    Jennifer G says:

    I’m juuuuust starting to quilt, and juuuuust starting to appreciate what solids bring to the mix. They’re like a visual breather for the patterned fabrics. What a great giveaway – I’d love to add these to my stash!

  392. 393
    Randi Skaggs says:

    I think the kona solid that I use the most right now is coal but I really LOVE all of the pinks, oranges, and greens. Oh who am I kidding? I love them all!

    EG says:

    I’m not in the habit of working in solids, but I’d like to figure that out!

    Bari says:

    I love using solids in quilts. They really add sparkle, and I like the fact that you can really show off some quilting in those “plain” fabrics. They are fun!

    Those are beautiful colors!

  395. 396
    Kate says:

    Most of the quilting I do utilizes mainly solids with some prints for accent. My favorite Kona solid right now is lagoon. Or chartreuse. Or corn yellow. Or, who am I kidding, I love them all!

  396. 397

    I don’t usually use solids except as a background, but I’ve been noticing some quilts out there lately that are made of all solids and I’m thinking it might be time to try it myself! This collection of colors is just delicious! Thanks for the chance!

    Katie Y says:

    I usually mix solids in with my patterned fabrics to give a little variety. I love to see how different colors can come together in ways you wouldn’t expect so I bet an all solids quilt could be pretty interesting. I hadn’t thought about that before but it would be fun to try.

    Stephanie C. says:

    I just started to get into solids and I love them!

  401. 402
    Patty says:

    I’ve been drawn to the quilts of Gee’s Bend lately and have tried my hand at improvisational design using solids. With this, I’m learning about hue, color composition and the difference between different solid fabrics. I’m drawn toward the dark reds right now. But tomorrow is always another day!

  402. 403
    Amy says:

    I love solids—I think they add to the color balance & overall texture of a quilt in ways that prints just can’t. Solids need prints & prints need solids. ‘Tis a happy marriage between the two! :)

    Maggie says:

    I’m still a fan of prints, so maybe this bundle will help me see the light!

    Thanks.

      Michelle Keenlyne says:

      I usually add white or coal solids to my quilts. I really, really need a shove toward using colored solids in my work. I’m just too much of a chicken I guess. I love Chartreuse, though.

    I love solids, they can be so dramatic in a quilt. Thanks for the chance!

    I have never used solids in a quilt~ mainly because I’ve never seen any as bright and beautiful as those! Thanks for the chance!

  408. 410
    Wendy says:

    Those are SO pretty! I am just getting started quilting, but am finding solids really add a lot to a quilt – instead of it being so ‘busy’ :)

  409. 411
    Karen says:

    I have shyed away from using solids – maybe fear they should mistakes so much more than prints. Maybe I should try and overcome these fears!!!!

    Barbara says:

    I don’t love solids unless it is a mashup of all solids, then I love them! The spectrum of colors is better than the sum of the parts!

  411. 413

    I love all the colors. Mostly purple. Thank you that I play with you.

  412. 414
    Brenda says:

    I just finished my first quilt top using all solids and I really like it! The pattern is from Cherri House’s book “City Quilts” and I have to admit that it took me a LONG time to figure out which of the quilt tops to make first as there are so many great ones! Kona has way too many great colors to pick just one, but I did just use Glacier in a blanket.

  413. 415
    Katie Bishop says:

    I love Kona! I am snotty about it too, only using Kona solids. I love these, but my favorite is plum!

  414. 416
    Kathy says:

    I think of solids like I think of accessaries. Similar colors help to blend the pallette, while contrasting colors create contrast, and as a result help create that color Pop we all talk about. It is so much fun to play around with color. And solids are an integral part. They can soften bright colors, like using gray with yellow, or serve as a visual transition when combining unusual color combos. I am definitely a fan.

  415. 417
    Angie says:

    Those are beautiful solids!

    I love solids! I just made my first quilt top entirely out of Kona solids, and I love the results. I cannot wait to have the time to quilt it. Have a great weekend:)

    Valerie says:

    I love solids, I don’t use them nearly enough but I hope to change that!

    I was going to say my favourite solid was Ash, but looking at that fantastic yellow in your picture above might just sway me, what a spectacular sunny happy colour that is!

    Monica says:

    Thanks for doing a giveaway! I haven’t really used many solids in my quilts, besides white, but I’m very new at quilting also. I’d love to give it a try and those are beautiful colors!

    When I see such beautiful colors grouped together it really inspires me to give solids a try.

    Kat Scott says:

    I love color… in any shape or form! Those solids are such cheerful lively colors… I am especially drawn to greens at the moment because they mix so well with others. Thanks for the chance to win.

  431. 433

    I don’t use them nearly enough but I do have a few in my stash…I’d say solids make up less than 10% of my collection, though I must say that this little lovely bundle has inspired me to get a few more in there!

  432. 434
    Pam says:

    There are a few quilts made with solids that I am adoring right now. One has a lot of gray in it. I was going to buy some fabric and put it in my to do pile, but I talked myself out of it. My taste may change by the time I get time to actually make it.

  433. 435

    I’m definitely a fan of solids. Never have enough!

    Emily says:

    Solids are always lovely! I think I started quilting right around the time that a lot of people were starting to test the waters of solids – thus I’ve always used them a lot. I like a lot of print too… but never really got into the traditional ways of using fabric in quilts. I guess I just never liked to follow the rules. :)

  442. 444
    texheks says:

    I love solids to combine with prints, but also for an all solids quilt! Currently I’m using various shades of green to mix with some Kaffe Fassett prints…

    LeeAnn says:

    Do polka dots count as a solid? Meh. I think I can count on one hand how many solids I have. (My linen and denim stash are part of that count!) So, yes, I need to start loving the solids!

    I use some solids and find that I use more than I used to. I tend to have a few favorite colors that I always go back to. A beautiful olive green and a nice medium gray are a couple of my basics, but I would love to win this beautiful bright solids bundle!

  451. 453

    I’ve always liked to mix solids and prints. I like the way it can calm an otherwise busy quilt.

    Taylor says:

    I’ve been dreaming of making a quilt out of just solids, but don’t have the stash for it yet. These awesome colors would definitely complement the ones I already have! I love working with Kona Coal, it’s one of my ideal shades of grey.

    sara says:

    i learned to love solids when i started scrapbooking and like you i had bought and stashed a TON of patterns! but i loved the clean-ness it creates and then really draws the eye to the bit of pattern you have or the design. Right now my favs are greys, oranges and lime greens. i currently have an interesting pile of solids for a new bedspread inspired by a pillow: light grey, chocolate, magenta, bright yellow and burnt orange! yum!

  464. 466
    Laura W. says:

    I consider solids to be not *quite* as exciting as prints, but I think my quilts look a LOT better when there are solids mixed in , and not just a bunch of prints!

  465. 467
    Connie says:

    It never occurred to me to use solids until I saw some of the more modern quilts (yours in particular). How can anything so beautifully simple be so far out of my comfort zone? This collection of solids you’re offering are delicious.. downright edible. Okay, ready to dive right in.

  466. 468
    Mary Lou says:

    I’ve not used a lot of solids yet in my quilting (other than white) but I have an idea for a quilt that would use nothing but solids and this collection would work great for it.

  467. 469
    Barb Colvin says:

    I’m just starting to explore the use of solids–mostly neutrals. That bundle Jackie is offering up says ‘flower applique’ to me. I’m thinking some hand stitches for embellishment, maybe some beads and/or buttons :)

    Sonja Doyle says:

    Hi Ashley,

    I love to use solids in my quilts along with prints, I find the solids really highlight the other pieces. I love the Kona Banana color, however I have not had a chance to use it.

    I also love solids for sashing or the backs of quilts.

  471. 473
    tusen says:

    I like solids very much, but I usually use them as “background”. It would be great to build at least a small stash. I’d love to try orange or dark yellow in a quilt, although they might be way outside my comfort zone.

    I use about 75% solids in my quilting. And I LOVE linen/cotton blends for my quilting! My favorite is no longer being made – boo!! It was a dark red, the perfect red actually, from Peapod fabrics in San Francisco (I actually don’t know manufacturer or color). I still have a few scraps left! Having fun with Max? He’s so handsome.

  478. 480
    britt says:

    Ooh pretty! I do love using solids. I seldom use white but like using a very saturated solid as my “neutral”. My favorite solids tend to fall in the pumpkin range. I really like quilts made with all solids but have not yet ventured that far.

  479. 481

    I love the Kona solids. I just finished a strip quilt and used Kona cotton on the back in a camel color, but I added a strip of floral fabric to break it up horizontally. I like the solids to help bring out a focus color in my prints. Thanks for the great giveaway.

    ohhhhhhhhhh…I’ve been thinking for quite a while “I need to get some solids for my quilts”, but then get distracted by the pretty prints and never quite manage to part with my cash…so maybe this could be the start of something new and different…
    anyway…would love to win…loving all the posts…well done for keeping it going and having a new baby!!! xxx

    Liz M says:

    I’ve only just started using solids, and with much trepidation as it’s so difficult to match colours when buying on-line and Kona is not only hard to find in the UK, but pretty pricey!
    Can you tell us which colours are in this bundle – it would make a lovely mini Bottled Rainbows quilt and I’d love to order a bundle (unless I’m lucky and win!!)

  493. 495
    Rita Goshorn says:

    ahhh, solids! kona solids! green kona solids! i use them: appliques, litle borders, inner borders, outer bordrs, accents; always include a yard of any color i’m short of in every order.

    Jeanette says:

    I love solids because I love color. But then, I have a hard time not loving fabric as long as it is bright and cheery.

    Lisa Gapen says:

    I haven’t gotten started adding solids yet (just to attracted to the patterns!) but I have seen many wonderful examples lately of just how the solids “pop” the patterns so I am hoping to start using them more.

  507. 509
    Anna says:

    I am just starting out on the solids bandwagon.
    I recently made a bento box type quilt from prints paired with a matching solid, and am quite pleased with the results.
    I think more solids will be in my future!

  508. 510

    I think solids are a great way to bring out the colors in prints. My favorite colors are any bright blue and bright green! Have a great weekend!

  509. 511
    Becky says:

    I like quilts that are composed of all solids. I would never have said that before I took a seminar from the amazing Gwen Marston and learned so much. I highly recommend her books and if you ever get to take a class where she teaches about solids, RUN, don’t walk. Changed my quilting preferences, totally!

    I have hardly any solids. I love the prints so much, it’s hard to put some down for some solids instead! I keep saying i need to ear-mark some $$ for solids though! Great give-away! Thanks for the chance to get some beautiful fabrics!

    alisha says:

    I generally use solids for sashing or binding, but I’ve seen some beautiful quilts made only with solids.

  512. 514
    Michelle says:

    Perfect timing! I was just looking through my fabric stash last weekend and said to my husband that I needed to get some solids to be able to make anything with the random collections of prints I have.

  513. 515
    Cheryl says:

    These solids would go perfectly with a Laurel Birch quilt I have in the works. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  514. 516

    I love them all and would not be able to tell you a favourite!!

    kristen says:

    i am new to quilting- my first 3 incorporated all patterned fabric, but the 4th was all solids and i loved it! i fashioned it after a painting by paul klee called “flora on the sands” and there were about 20 different solid fabrics in it! My next quilt will definitely be all solids once again!

  516. 518
    Abby says:

    I never use solids! unless its for a backing- I would love to start adding some to my designs.

  517. 519
    Carmel says:

    I have a small amount of homespun in solid colours that I have had for years that I used for applique, but being new to quilting, I haven’t used any solids in quilts yet. I recently bought myself a Kona colour chart so that I can match solids to my prints but haven’t used it yet. I love the colours in that bundle, nice and fresh and bright!

  518. 520
    Holly says:

    I have never made a quilt from only solids, but I can certainly see one in my future! My favorite colour changes frequently…but right now I love tangerine.

  519. 521
    Deb says:

    I actually seldom use solids, but I’ve loved every quilt I’ve seen of yours that uses them. I love the Raisin solid that you mentioned as a binding and really should use them more in my quilting. Would love to win this bundle.

  520. 522

    Ohhhhhhhhhh drool! I love the juicy colours in this bundle. Thanks for the giveaway.

  521. 523
    Margaret says:

    I use a lot of Kona white but am slowly acquiring a few others…next quilt will be a combination of both. Thanks for the chance to win…BTW, love your blog :)

    Pam Kozar says:

    I have not been in the habit of using solids. I’m just now discovering the more “modern” trend in quilts, and I do love the way solids are used. I have a couple of more projects to finish, and then I may give it a try.

  523. 525

    I {heart} solids…I wish the quilt shops in my area carried more solids. I am just working on my first quilt but I would love to use solids on some upcoming projects I have in mind I love the simplicity.

    Thanks for hosting this giveaway

    For ten years I never used a solid, now at least one goes into every quilt. Love the look so much right now!

    carla says:

    so many comments, but it doesn’t hurt to try. Love the solids I see on-line and the quilts made with them.

    Thanks for hosting this giveaway! I have just begun to use solids in my projects. I’d love to build the colors in my solid stash. Love the lime green!

    I’m not a solid fabric person, but those are gorgeous. I would love working with those fabrics!

    I love what people are doing with solids lately and can’t wait to try something like that myself. Can’t choose a favorite color though; there are just too many!

  529. 531
    chris says:

    greetings! i have seen many examples of solids being in quilts on different blogs and i find them absolutely stunning. i would like to give it a whirl myself, so i hope i win!

  530. 532
    Annah says:

    I’ve been trying to experiment a bit more with solids because I tend to get a bit carried away with all the beautiful patterned fabric out there! Definitely agree that solids add a zing to a design though, especially in the beautiful colours you’re giving away…

    I am a recent convert to solids and cant get enough of them. I would love to make your kites quilt. Thanks to you and Canton Village for the giveaway

    I think solids are necessary. Backgrounds dont always have to be white, offwhite, and cream prints!

    Beth says:

    I would love some solids for my stash. I appreciate the emphasis on the quilt pattern you get with the simple solids.

  534. 536
    Tina Hansen says:

    That bundle of color is terrific. I’m making a quilt using a pattern by Empty Bobbin called Seeing Squares. I’m using different Kona solids and some prints–nothing is really planned. Thanks for the great opportunity to add these to my collection.

    CJ says:

    I love solids but don’t have too many in my stash. I always figure I won’t have enough of the color I need so I wait to get what I need for a specific project. I love a great Robin’s Egg blue and my favorite color of all time is RED.

  539. 541
    Katie B says:

    I love adding solids! Amethyst is a current fave.

    I have recently started using more solids in my quilts.I am still trying to get used to doing this but I do like the way they are looking. Thanks for the chance at the giveaway

  541. 543
    Penny says:

    wow I love your choices. Solids are great, but it is hard to match lines sometimes. I find that I have to ccordinate alot since I don’t trust ordering a matching color online and trust me Joannes color selection for solids stinks. I can coordinate online fairly easily. aThanks for the giveaway. Gray and turquoise are my favorite solids. Yellow has been popping up a lot in my stuff lately.

  542. 544
    Jessica D says:

    I just started quilting and would love to get me hands on some solids. I love the colours in this bundle!

  543. 545
    Sel says:

    I never used to use solids, and then I discovered the Kona range. I love how wonderfully they offset bright and bold patterns.

    Thank you for running the giveaway!

  544. 546
    Jane Poh says:

    I make fabric bags and I usually match a solid lining to a print exterior. I find it a lot harder to shop for solids than prints mostly because most fabric shops I’ve been to stock less good quality cotton solid.

  545. 547
    Jackie says:

    I’d love to incorporate solids in my quilting. I just bought my first Kona last month but haven’t started the project yet.

    I love solids and have only made one solids quilt. My first ever and then I found fabric patterns. May need to get back to solids.

    I love kona sage! I always use some in my quilts.

    Ruth says:

    I love solids, but I am not brave enough to use them as often as I would like!

  549. 551
    Liz says:

    I bought a Kona color card last year and it has helped me so much in picking out the right solids for a project. But I still want to get better at incorporating them in, as usually I buy way too many prints and then have nothing to complement them!

  550. 552
    Jen latourette says:

    I’m a fairly new quilter and like you, really haven’t been using solids. I’d like to, though. Sometimes it just looks more “calming” to have some solids instead of all patterns. My fav. Kona solid color is a medium grey.

  551. 553
    Gretchen says:

    I love color in any shape or form–print or solid! I would love to win these…:)

  552. 554
    CJ says:

    I am starting to play with solids. So far just incorporating them into quilts along with prints. I used to be afraid of them too, but blogs like yours have helped me see their possibilities. I don’t have a favorite color, but right now I can’t get enough of the Moda Bella pistachio.

  553. 555

    I have to admit I am a print girl. But lately I’ve realized how much I am in need of some good solids. This would be a great start to my collection!

  557. 559
    Kelli says:

    I am drawn to prints when I’m shopping, but to solids when I’m actually quilting or picking out a quilt design…so, basically I have to shop for solids whenever I need them because I never pick them up on impulse…I could use some solid stashing!! ;)

  558. 560
    Catherine says:

    I love solids, especially different shades of the same color all together… yum!

    I am really starting to get into solids too. So many ways to use them! Thanks!

  561. 563
    Ruth Knee says:

    I actually started my few little first ones with solids and one print, I was actually afraid of prints, but then I moved on with them. But now seen again all of this precious solid out there and I might start to go back to solids and just one print. Thanks for the chance.

  562. 564
    Julianna says:

    Does using white count? I need to branch out more into colored solids.

    I too am just starting to incorporate more solids into my quilts….love the colors in the fabric pack

    thanks!!!

  564. 566
    Susan says:

    I normally use a bit of solids in every quilt, but I have never made a quilt just using solids. Your ‘kites’ quilt certainly has inspired me…I love it. My eye is drawn more toward bright colors as opposed to pastels. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

    Melissa says:

    I love solids- my favorites right now are Kona Snow and Ash… Thanks for the giveaway!

    I quite like solids, kona grass is a current fave.

    Heather says:

    Keeping a stack of solids inpires my color selection. This stack woudl be great to have in my collection. Thanks for your generosity. Love med grey and ash too!

  571. 573
    Wendy P says:

    My stash is sorely lacking in solids! I too have been all about the prints, but I want to try making more solid colored quilts. I’ve been seeing a lot of them in the blogs lately, especially in the range of aquas. I think that pack was called Poseidon. Anyway, no shopping in the foreseeable future, so I hope I win!

  572. 574
    Kristy says:

    I’m just finishing up the top for my first solid quilt. I can definitely see the appeal, although I do love prints, too!

  573. 575
    Katie says:

    My stash is seriously lacking in solids, so lately I’ve been trying to pick some up here and there. I love the look that solids add to a quilt, so I really should use them more.

  574. 576
    Molly says:

    I’m glad you came around to solids. Your quilts always have a nice blend of color and scale, I’m sure the addition of solids has only made this better.
    Yes, please, count me in!

  575. 577
    Stephanie says:

    I love solids! Kona solids are my favorite so far… it is very good quality. I’d love to make a quilt of basic bold colored solid blocks.

  576. 578
    Debra says:

    I love solids and although I haven’t done an all solid quilt yet would like to do one in all purples for my sister-in-law. I adore your kite quilt and I think any color looks wonderful with grey!

    Embracing solids more all the time. It’s hard to pass up a print for a solid, but when I see the final product, it’s fab!

      Pat V. says:

      MMM, these colors are as yummy as their names! I’d have to pick Mango as my current fav.

      I never used solids in my quilts til I tried the P2 Modern Solids Quilt Along. I love the way it turned out, and so do my son and DD’s boyfriend. So I’m ready for more Kona solids adventures!

    I love solids! I never used to, but they’re really growing on me. In fact, my quilting group is having a solids challenge next month. We each have to make something that uses only solids. My favorite color is Kona turquoise.

    I just started working with solids and I’m loving it. Right now my favorite color is pomegranate.

  596. 599
    Deborah in Atlanta says:

    I really need some solids. And what lovely solids these are. And I just love the names of the colors: Papaya, Mango, Cerise, Lupine, Bahama Blue, and Pear. No wonder they’re so yummy!!!! Papa, Mango, Pear – foods!! Oh yeah!!!

  597. 600
    Trudy McLaughlin says:

    Turquoise is my current favorite and I really do not like a quilt without solids even if it is just a bit of white!!

    Always happy when my google reader tells me you have a new post. Thanks for the giveaway!

    marlene says:

    Wow, your photos are so vivid. Up until now, I haven’t really used solids in my projects, but I’ve recently started adding a few colors to my stash. I’ve been making some clutches and sometimes I don’t have the perfect lining fabric, so I’m starting to use solids. And I think I like it. Oh-oh … that means I need to continue building my stash. Heh heh!

  613. 616
    Sissy says:

    As a matter of fact, I just put Kona cotton in white on my fabric “to buy” list…I finally realized that most every quilt I’ve admired lately is sashed in, binded, backed and designed with SOLID WHITE fabric!!! Currently, I don’t have any quality solids in my stash, so I’m aiming to build it up over the summer while road tripping across country and shop hopping (my husband doesn’t know the shop hop agenda yet!

    Mona Kuntz says:

    I love solids, but I never use them. Why, you ask? Because I’m not…how shall I say it?….Well, I’m not a perfectionist. And solids show all of my sewing, piecing, appliqueing imperfections. But I do love them — when I see them in a quilt, I think they always add such a glow to the overall look of the quilt. I guess I’ll keep trying to use solids, but I know myself….

  615. 618
    jeanne says:

    I love solids and think an all solid quilt can be stunning. I’m glad quilters are starting to use more solids in their quilts.

    I’m a Visual Arts Teacher and “born again” quilter….a solids queen originally and then left the quilt world for a decade or more because I hated 90’s prints. No cutesy stuff for me. But I am back! Todays solids are amazing. I have 3 “solids” quilts on the go currently. Cant get enough of the amazing interchange of colour. My favourites are Kona and all praise to the Colour card that is available and businesses like Canton who offer small increments for purchase. Thankyou for the giveaway.

    I haven’t used solids in a quilt but I have much admired the colours of them such as Kona Ash.

  628. 631
    Jackie Miller says:

    I love solids!!! I love them because prints on top of prints can sometime drowned out your favorite things you loved about the print to begin with, where if you pair it with solids it makes it pop and mean that much more!

  629. 632
    Kim says:

    I never used solids until I did a quilt along with a quilting blogger. Now I love them!

  630. 633
    Dianna says:

    I am only beginning my quilting journey and because of this I only think how I could enhance my dream quilt projects with solids. I have made a few patchwork bags and only used prints in these. Thinking about those bags, perhaps a bit of solid would have broken the mayhem of the print. I can’t say I have a favourite colour but I guess it would depend on the colours in the prints as to what I would use as a solid to compliment or contrast. Thanks for the chance:)

  631. 634
    aSprinkling says:

    So fun! I have made two quilts out of only solids. They were pretty basic, but I like them. I have another one on the agenda (once I finish hand binding the last one).

    What a gorgeous colour range of Kona solids. I don’t have any solids in my stash. If I win, it will be the start to collect them.

    Martha says:

    When I work in solids, I tend to use all solids. My current favorite is Kona Cotton Asparagus.
    This give-away selection would make a great tote bag for spring/summer!!

    I’m getting into solids more & more now, and especially like greys at the moment. Love this selection too – I could definitely think of some nice things to make up with it!

  648. 651

    I’ve been using lots of solids lately. It’s a big deal since I shied away from them for the first few years I started quilting. Now my biggest issue is using them enough without over doing it. Total love now. Best usage is when I do some wonky quilting work. There’s always room for solids.

    Connie says:

    In a recent quilt I used a solid tangerine as a foil to the prints in a charm pack. Although i don’t think I’m brave enough to make an all solid quilt, I like to use them to highlight the prints. It would be nice to have this pretty array of colors in my stash. Thanks for the chance to win.

    I’m still in the “only prints” stage but I’ve been looking at all of the quilts with solids and I think I need to use them more. Love, love those colors. Thanks for the chance to win and get started on a bright summer picnic quilt.

    I am building my stash of solids because I have loved the solid color quilts I’ve been seeing. City Quilts totally put me over the top. Thanks for the chance!

    Blogless me says:

    Wow! I hope your random number generator uses numbers as big as this ;-)
    I have only once used solids in a child’s quilt to frame some animal panels and it worked very well. In the future I’m planning an Amish style quilt and have already started to gather dark solids for it. I have also had my eyes set on an Ocean Wave pattern to make with light coloured solids, so that is where these will fit in … if I am the lucky one (fingers crossed!).
    As to my favourite colour, as you say yourself, it changes regularly. About now I would say aubergine.

  659. 662
    Magpye says:

    I love solids. I haven’t made anything with just solids, but it’s on my to-do list. My problem is that I love neutrals and tend to buy the same colors over and over, solid or print. My favorite solid is Kona Med Grey, it goes with all most everything

  660. 663

    Lucy says:

    I love all the solids quilts I’ve been seeing lately, I used a beautiful charcoal grey in a quilt top I am almost finished, I didn’t have a lot of it, so I had to get creative in how I used what pieces I had. I’m very pleased with it. So charcoal is definitely a favorite, goes well with scrappy fabrics. I would love the chance to make more favorite solids! I will definitely be using more in the future, too!

    Eryn says:

    I too never touched a solid until the “modern” quilting movement became so popular. Who’d have thought!! Now nothing is made without a solid. It’s a nice break for the eyes. Kona is the best – without a doubt. My favorite is Kona Pond – so perfect…

    Anne says:

    I used to think solids were too boring and I avoided them in favor of “near-solids,” quiet prints with two shades of the same color. But I read somewhere – on a blog, probably – that if you think your quilts are looking too busy, you should add a few solids to the mix. Good advice! Thanks for the chance to win.

    Jen says:

    I haven’t used many solids in quilts, but I always like the look of them mixed with prints – and love your Kites in the Clouds! I have used some in patchwork pillows and other projects…Kona Peridot and Tarragon seem to make repeat appearances in those projects.

    Linda says:

    I love bright colors, and Kona solids feed that love. My favorite right now, I think, is Chartreuse. This is not to say that I don’t love prints. But with solids, all you have to worry about it the colors going well together.

    I really love using solids when I get the chance to buy some, I think they really tie all prints together and make it cohesive! Haven’t really used many solids but from what I have seen they can make things really pop! Thanks for the chance!

    Carli says:

    I plan on quilting tomorrow on my birthday. How I use solids is to add either the look of isolation of prints or to add folds and create texture with solid colors. I’ve been a crazy quilter for several decades and often put a slice of solid into a crazy block to add the surprise of a splash of color.
    my blog post of bay Calm-Purple is an example of isolation of prints with solids. Love your blog.

    I haven’t been doing too much with solids lately. But, I love how a solid can bring several prints together or make a certain print stand out. So much fun to work with solids. I don’t really have a favorite, but I’ve been using grays and whites lately…summer color would be wonderful! Thanks for the chance!

    Niina says:

    My first quilt, which is still in cutting phase, has quite a lot of vintage sheeting in it. At first I thought I’d use only prints but have come to realize that dash of solids here and there would make the prints stand-out more. So right now, I’m all for adding solids to quilts. However, I’m not too keen on having all solid quilt.

  735. 738
    Colleen says:

    Funny that you should mention solids…I’ve been thinking about doing a quilt using nothing but solids. I LOVE Kona and use white for a lot of my quilts. My LQS doesn’t carry much Kona (mostly Moda fabrics) and Joann’s has a few colors but I’ve been going to search on the web for more colors (and good prices!). Thanks for mentioning Canton Village. I have them bookmarked so I’ll check it out.

    My bedroom is an olive green (my DH calls it split-pea green…LOL) and I was thinking that I’d like something to contrast with it. I love the raisin, too. It might be nice with a few prints. Thanks for the inspiration :)

    Jessica Fuester says:

    I do like adding solids to a quilt but just recently started doing so when my baby boy was born. I found that I was drawn more toward solids when sewing for him- didn’t want quite so many prints.

    I do love solids! These are such beautiful, clear colors. And I love that solids, which are less expensive, can really help stretch a quilting budget especially as cotton prices are increasing.

    Gail Garvey says:

    I have been admiring the solids quilts I have been seeing on the internet. Just today I bought Kona solid white, khaki, light pink,light blue and light green. I do not know the official names of the colors because they were all remnants. (I found out they were Kona when the description printed out on the sales slip!)I am getting good at identifying this fabric because of the lovely hand and the beautiful colors. I would love to try the grey shades with green or orange.

  759. 762
    Kelsey Rose says:

    I love solids. In fact, I’m way more comfortable with solids than I am with combining prints….

    Kona Ash and Kona Coal are my favorite because they make other colors pop so much. :)

    Camilla says:

    I’m just making my first solids quilt at the moment, also my first improvisational one, inspired by the colours of gum trees here in Australia- so many shades in the bark and leaves! I”m using 53 different kona solids. Fun!

    VickiT says:

    I’ve gone to the quilt shop with every intention of buying solids SO many times and every single time the pretty colored prints draw my attention away and I buy no solids. Every single time! I’ve been seeing so many beautiful quilts and so many do have solids within those quilts so I have decided to make a promise to myself that I will buy solids more than prints for awhile.
    Thank you for such a great giveaway

    Thanks to you and cvq for the lovely giveaway. I’m just starting to use more solids in my quilts. I’ve graduated from one solid to 3 or 4 intermixed with prints. This is a perfect giveaway for me to win as just picked out a pattern named Almost Solids (it has a narrow stripe border) by Kaye England that I would like to make. A modern set of colors would be wonderful for this little quilt.

    Shannon says:

    I love that there are so many different solids and that each brand or type or texture lends different meaning to a project. A favorite? I’m sweet on the Kona Papaya these days.

    I only really use solids in combination with prints.

    My go-to colour is a dusty apple green – a fabric that I buy over and over from one of the large fabric chain stores here in Australia.

    Alia says:

    I have always loved using solids in my quilts. I have only recently discovered Kona solids and love them! I mailed ordered as you can not find them here in Oman! I am so loving so many of the colors according to my little sample book and would love to own more! Thank you for the chance!

    Morgan says:

    I love solids! I think they are great alone, and they set off prints really nicely. I’ve never actually used Kona fabric, so I’m kind of curious what’s so fantastic about it.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

    I love solids.Love to mix match them with other prints.I think they make every color standout.

    Bec Clarke says:

    I love adding solids to quilts to break things up a bit but I really must try to do a majority solids quilt soon. My favourite colour is green but I don’t actually quilt with it that much.

    I have not yet had the chance to use solids. However I love the look and see a lot of it in my future projects

    Petra says:

    Hi I don’t have a single solid, they aren’t sold in Sweden so I need to order them online and that means not being able to see and feel them. So I put of bying them. That pack would be great, my absolute favourite colours.

    Nikol says:

    I love solids. For the most part I’ve always added them to ‘tone’ down all the prints, but I really like the look of the all-solid quilts. One is definitely in my future. ;-)

    Jean N. says:

    Why I love solids… let me count the ways!
    First off, I love the rainbow of solids I used in my sister’s double wedding ring quilt that I made three years ago, which is well loved and well used.
    Solids grab the eye, they are not super bold, just enough to say “here I am” and lead you thru a quilt.
    I still love the DWR quilt I made my sister and a pack of solids will go a long way to making another one :)
    Thanks for the give away!

    I have a pattern that I’m collecting solids for. I reckon it might take me a year to collect all of the color variations I’ll need! Thanks for the chance to win some delicious Kona solids!

    Shasta says:

    When I first started quilting, I got lots of advice from quilting books. They said not to use solids because the prints hide mistakes better. So I used prints, and never used solids. Now I have seen so many beautiful quilts with solids that I am thinking about braving the fact that my mistakes will show. I have very few solids in my stash.

    Mareenchen says:

    I’m in love with the Kona greens and blues but yet haven’t yet worked with any solids. Way to start?

    I love solids and seem to always gravitate toward greens and yellows or yellow/oranges.

  798. 801
    Beth says:

    I too love lots of color. Maybe greens are my favorites. Solids can bring out the prints to their best.

    Cheryl says:

    I am new to quilting and have never used Kona fabrics. I think solids make the prints “pop”. I would love to be the lucky recipient of these fabrics!

    I’m just starting to collect solids and hope to make a quilt (king size…ugh!!!) completely out of solids. My favorites at the moment are blues and greens.

    My stash is mostly patterns, too, and now I’m realizing that solids are so essential for a modern design. Unfortunately our local fabric shops don’t carry many solids at all!

    Stacy B says:

    I’m pretty new to quilting and so far have only mixed one solid at a time into multiple patterns. I really like the look of all solids though!

    Sheetal says:

    I’ve been a bit obsessed with solids recently and have been trying to collect a bundle. I love the idea of almost all solids with a print or two thrown in for interest…my current favourite is charcoal gray.

    Nancy L says:

    I never ever even thought of using solids until our guild had a challenge. As a beginner, I am just so open to all sorts of ideas and techniques. Looove those colours. Thanks for the chance to win such a yummy palate.

    Oh, so pretty. I love adding a touch of solids but can never find the prefect shades in the colors I want at the time. Maybe I’m looking in all the wrong places. Thank you for pointing me in the right direction.

    Marianne says:

    Back in the 90s I lived 15 minutes from Amish country in Pennsylvania and took classes on how to use solids. I used them a lot back then and can make a wicked Amish style quilt, all solids, and have made many. I kind of drifted away from them as they were never really popular but I am seeing a wave of people using them recently.

    June S says:

    Kites in the clouds is a really fantastic quilt! I love it. For me, solids have been a late to the game thing. I started sewing again for all the fun prints out there, but as I have been quilting more and more the solids are really starting to gain popularity in my head :)

    And hello from South Burlington! I wonder if we’re neighbors… I’m in the Laurel Hill neighborhood – we should get together to sew sometime?

    I really enjoy using solids in my quilts. Sometimes they give you just the “pop” you need. Keep the pictures of the baby coming! He is such a cutie.

    Shannon says:

    I like solids but I seem to not use them as much as I could, it usually ends up being a tone on tone type of thing. Anyway, I love blue any shade of blue.

    Tamar W says:

    I’v been seeing a lot of solids lately and I’ve always thought of them as accents, but I’d like to do a solids quilt.

    I love solids – it’s like a hit of pure colour, and it can make such an impact. My current favourite is eggplant, but the favourite seems to change on a regular basis! Last week it was buttercup!!
    Love the colours in your picture, thanks for the giveaway.

    I never really thought about solids as the main part of a quilt until I saw some of your masterpieces (shameless praise, yes). I really like the way solids accent the minimally patterned fabrics in your quilts. Solids are da bomb!
