Sew Solids from Tales of a Stitcher

I am often asked what solid fabric lines are my favorites, and where do I buy them? Hopefully, this blog post answers those questions.

In my opinion, hand dyed solid fabrics are the best, but if you lack the skill, time, or resources to create your own hand dyed fabrics that is OKAY. We are very lucky to live in a quilter’s world where most of the major fabric lines are creating incredible solid color fabrics.

The COVID-19 Diary Entry #1 from Tales of a Stitcher

We makers like the idea of uninterrupted days of creating. It is on our want list. Unfortunately, we must not have been very clear when we sent that request out into the universe.

Who knew that we would get what we wanted with just a few caveats.

We can make us much as we want BUT there will be people dying daily while we do, AND their caretakers will not have adequate protection or support, AND—last but not least,  the world will spiral into the darkest economic times since the Great Depression.

Okay, folks, go ahead and make some ...
