What Shade Am I?

I have been very quiet over the past few weeks because I have been working on my quilt for the RJR What Shade Are You? blog hop! I am so excited to finally debut it! This quilt features RJR's Cotton Supreme Solids.


When deciding what shade I was, I quickly came to the conclusion that I am no one shade (although I am rather partial to teal). I love color, all color, too much to describe myself as just one. So! They kindly gave me a spectrum of color to play with and this is what happened!


The solids I used were 311, 287, 280, 279, 292, 349, 348, 291, 209, 276, 326, 228, 32, and 33. I also used some Cotton and Steel Basics because they read so well as solids. As far as design goes, I tried to add in bits and pieces of my personality. While the construction is very uniform and linear, the placement of color creates a chaos that keeps it interesting.



I do love how it turned out! If you would like to see some other quilts from the blog hop, jump over to their Facebook Page.

As part of the RJR Blog Hop, they are kindly offering a bundle of the solids I used as a giveaway! Just leave a comment to win! (US and Canada only) I will pick the winner using the random number generator on Tuesday. Thanks again to RJR for having me on this fun blog hop!

  29. Agreed! It is just to hard to confine yourself to being just one shade, though I too am partial to teal. The quilt top looks fabulous... love how those colours pop against the white!
