Gorgeous! I particularly love the middle one and the bottom right. I've been thinking about missing my sewing machine.

I love those images. I too have a desire to do things with solids:

These were dome with some scraps. So much fun.

I've seen some of those pics and been thinking the same thing! Got to give it a go. I bought a whole stack of plain fabric and am just staring at it at the moment. It's easy to start when you have a pile of scraps but harder to cut to a plan with no design to guide you.

I'm loving the swirly one. So clever. I'm thinking how on earth did they do that!!!
Looking forward to your next creation.
