What Shade are You?

June 30, 2014

Today, it’s my turn on the RJR Blog hop for, “What Share Are You?”

RJR blog hop 300x250

This blog hop is all about working with RJR Cotton Supreme solids and showcasing how awesome the are to work with.   I’ve been meaning to use Carolyn Friedlander’s Shirts pattern for something special and this was it:

RJR Project

The colors I used was (all the colors can be found here:

  • Pink Orchid 331
  • Bougainvillea 333
  • Cloud 9 281
  • Bora Bora 328
  • Cove 294
  • Peridot 342
  • Golden Topaz 285
  • On the Rock 283
  • Gale Force 282

The pattern was really easy, especially if you have done foundation paper piecing.  If you haven’t Carolyn’s instructions guide you through each step!

I made this into a mini and made sure that it could support a dowel in the back. And I’m really happy on how it turned out.  Generally, I don’t just use all solids in my projects but with RJR Cotton Supremes – I think I will more!

If you would like to see other projects that were that were made with them, please visit RJR’s Facebook page!  Also Pink Castle Fabrics has a great selection too (I hear she’s having a moving sale so hop on it!!!)  

 

If you liked my bundle – RJR Fabrics is giving away a FQS – please leave a comment with what your favorite RJR solid is – and I’ll pick a winner next Monday (US and CAN only sorry).
