Fabric Love #12: Love Them Solids

I think all the quilts I have made have used at least ONE solid fabric.  They are just so versatile - sashing, coordinating with prints, quilt backing and binding.  Whatever your sewing outlet, solid cottons have a place :).  Sometimes I just like lining them up for inspiration or to see how different shades come together. 

My personal stash of fabrics have about 40 solids ... is that bad??? :P  I like to have different shades readily available :).  Recently I have brought a few bolts of solids to add to the JAQS Fabric shop:

 

I've seen quilts made from all solids.  I would like to try that one day :).  In the meanwhile, I have a dozen uses for these basic - but very useful - fabrics in my stash.

Hope you enjoy solids as much as I do :).

P2 is having a quilt along for a small sampler quilt that uses solids. Perhaps it may interest you. I didn't have solids so used prints and a few pieces of grunge to try the blocks. Your stash must be enormous if you have 40 solids. Wow!
