Johanna said...

I am not planning on entering the quiltcon block challenge because the postage would be a bit too much from Europe :)
Just a couple of months ago I only used white as a solid and I still haven't purchased others. The reason? I just can't decide on the colors!

These solids are so beautiful! They are actually in all "my" colors, and I'd love to try making a solids only quilt from them. Not sure that I'd get it done in time for the QuiltCon challenge, though.
