Making a quilt completely from solid fabrics may is both challenging and exciting. The word "solid" may be described as plain, simple, or even boring, but the challenge actually lies with its simplicity.
When you use printed fabrics, a new design element is automatically added. With solid fabrics as your primary element, you need to be more creative; think out of the box on how to make an interesting quilt out of solid fabrics. According to Craftsy.com's article Solid Quilts: Painting with Patternless Fabric, making solid quilts will give you the "ability to 'paint with fabric' and have the ultimate control in the way the colors interact."
