It's pretty full, with everything from yardage to pretty small pieces.
I haven't used much from this drawer in awhile.
But then, I saw that Lori of Humble Quilts is having a quilt along called Almost Amish. Solids are called for - certainly I have enough of the right colors in my drawer to sew along? And we're making a small piece - about 21" square, if I remember right.
Lori's color recommendation are brown, black, maroon, green, blue, and a light or white.
Here's what seems like it will work from my drawer -
Black, ivory, light blue, a darker (greenish) blue, a plum/maroon, and a khaki for the brown.
Step 1 was posted on Friday, HERE, so I sewed up some four patches.
They are the maroon and ivory together, and brown and light blue.
Should be interesting!
Fun to play with these scraps and turn them into something! Sharing at Quilting is more fun than Housework for Oh Scrap!
I like the colors! Looks like a fun project.
My solids are the most neglected and least exciting part of my stash. From time to time I feel obligated to buy them, but I never seem to buy the right colors.
Off to a good start! Nice colors :)
I love your colors! Enjoy your project!
I never realize how few solids I have until I go looking for some in my stash. I always seem to fall for the lure of prints...

You can't go wrong with solids in my opinion! I'm anxious to see this come together! The 'almost Amish' is intriguing to me!
Great colors for your project. The quilt along started just at the right time. Thanks for linking up with Oh Scrap!
Looking forward to seeing this project come together. Happy stitching this week.
I've got the list for that one too, just haven't picked out the fabrics yet. I keep getting distracted down in my quilt room (imagine that). I figure at 21" finished, it won't slow me down too much! But as is typical, I'm already behind! I like your colors, and I think they will work well!
Great choices! It's a great idea, I have some solids but only use them periodically!!! You inspired me, thanks!
Have fun!! Working with solids is not exactly my favorite thing to do. Although... It's sounds like it could be an interesting challenge for me. Especially, finishing at only 21"!
I don't have many solids and those all seem to be dark and dull, so I've never made anything with them.. I much prefer to use tone-on-tone prints that read as a solid. I've seen some quilts, like 'Postcards from Sweden' that appeal to me, but mostly the solid just look flat to me.
