Solids, Polka Dots & a Giveaway!

Thanks in large part to the Modern Quilt Guild, solids have made an incredible comeback and don't seem to be going away anytime soon.  I love it!  What to do with all these solids?  I found a few free patterns and I think there is a little something for everyone here.

Do you love the jelly rolls?  (Or as Robert Kaufman calls them, roll ups.)  Then this is the one for you!

Skinny Strips is available for download and takes a colorful roll up and a solid white roll up.  Easy enough for such an attractive, trendy quilt!  Check out all of our solid precuts here
Strips aren't your thing?  Maybe you'll like circles!
Kona Dots is available for download.  You could go for traditional colors on this one, but I think it begs for 2 colors + a little pizazz!  How about black and white with an aqua and red circle every now and then?  Cute! 
Check out the full range of Kona Cotton Solids here

More traditional?  Then you'll love this Amish style quilt!
Colorful Kona Squares is available for download.  It's a very simple, classic pattern.  Stick with the traditional look or be creative!  Need a baby quilt?  Why not switch out for soft yellow and gray?
This one from Moda takes just 12 Bella Solid fat quarters + background and border. Not bad!
Mind the Gap is available for download.  Once again, be creative~  Go your own way with the colors and make it special for you!

Just for fun, since I love them even more than solids, let's throw in a polka dot quilt!  You might want to sneak a polka dot into one your solid quilts just to be different :o)

Polka Dot Patch by Riley Blake is available for download.  Check out the full range of Dots in 3 sizes, plenty of delicious colors to choose from.  They are, of course, a perfect match with both the Chevron and Stars collections.  Just sayin'!

So, which are you most likely to make?  Drop me a comment and you'll be entered for a chance to win a
 Bright Kona Cotton Solid Charm Pack. 
 One comment per person, please. I'll announce the winner on Friday September 28th. Good Luck!
