Sandy's blocks and solid swap complete

Here's your two blocks Sandy!  I'm loving the look of your blocks! 
Can't wait to see this quilt together! I think I need a whole quilt in
these colors.... Thanks Sandy for inspiring me!

 I also finished my Segmented solid swap quilt!  Everyone here was trying to claim it,
so now I am going to make a WHOLE quilt out of blocks like this, all based on Matisse...
I have some details over at my Bumblebeans blog...If you want to play along. 
I had so much fun making these...

The quilting was even more fun!  Pulling details from his paintings for the quilting added a lot
to the quilt as a whole. Take the opportunity to PLAY with your quilting!

Did you find it challenging to use Just solids
I had to keep reminding myself,
no prints!  hehe!  fun stuff!

This is beautiful. I have had to remind myself several times about the solids. I think I am getting closer to the quilting stage. Just trying to decide whether to do it by hand or machine.

As soon as I unpack my sewing room I will get to play again.
