For the Love of Solids Swap

So, I had such success with my Spicing Up the Kitchen Swap on Flickr that I decided I would participate in another online Flickr swap.  This one is called For the Love of Solids, which will involve making an item solely out of solids.  I am excited about this one!  It was part of my New Year's resolution this year to work with solids.  Specifically I would like to try an art or freestyle modern quilt in the fashion of Jean Wells (top left and third in from top left).  But, I want to create mine in mainly all white, off-white and tans, with a pop of color (more like the bottom left photo or third in from bottom left). My pop of color I would like to make in blues with just the barest hint of orange/red.   I love the idea of this, this is the sort of thing I would love to make my partner or to receive.  I also love the idea of hand stitching in perle cotton or machine stitching in various colors.  I don't know, but I do want to play with solids a whole lot more in future and I feel this will be a great kickoff for it.  *Note to partner, I would love an art quilt/wall hanging but I'm open to anything.
