11 Quilt Patterns that are a Perfect Fit with Solid Color Fabrics
I find creating quilts to be a joyful sewing experience. Inspiration can come from a pattern that speaks to me or fabric that I fall in love with. More recently, I have enjoyed sewing with solid color fabrics. I like the modern and clean look of a solid fabric quilt. We have some great quilt patterns in the shop that work beautifully with solid-colored fabrics.
