You guys, I’m so pumped for today’s post! I was asked by RJR Fabrics if I’d like to be part of their What Shade Are You blog hop, featuring Cotton Supreme Solids, and of course I jumped at the chance!
Solids are my first love, so I was excited to get in on the fun.
I knew I wanted to do something simple, graphic and bold. I’ve had an idea in my head for a while, and this seemed like the perfect time to try it. So, with my pattern in mind, it was time to choose my fabrics! After browsing the beautiful range of colors, I decided on this palette of lovely jewel tones.So, here it is!
The quilt is a combination of squares, HSTs and 4-patches. The finished size is 63″ x 84″, perfect for curling up on the couch with a
big glass of wine cup of hot tea. I’m a big fan of bright colors and high contrast, but this pattern would look great in any palette. I may have to try it with prints too!
For the back, I took all my leftover bits and did a little improv panel to break up the black. I kind of LOVE IT.
I bound the quilt with Netorious in black from Cotton + Steel. Yum! I kept the quilting simple and stuck to the grid. I used a lovely grey Aurifil 50wt that blends beautifully with the different colors. It’s already so soft, I suspect this is going to be deliciously cozy after a wash and fluff.
This was my first time working with Cotton Supreme Solids, and I have to say I’m completely smitten! The fabric is super soft with a nice drape, and it sews up like a dream! They definitely give other premium solids a run for their money. And if you like working with Cotton + Steel fabrics, you’ll love these!
If you use a lot of solids, I’d recommend picking up a color card for easy reference and to take the guesswork out of online ordering.
Ready to give Cotton Supreme Solids a try? RJR Fabrics has generously provided a fat quarter bundle of my color palette to give away to one lucky winner! (The lighter blue is missing from pic but will be included in the bundle).

Wow – love the boldness of your quilt (and the back is pretty nice too!). I would probably do a small mini quilt with those fabrics (and I would probably add some stripes since I seem to be into stripes….) :)
I love your quilt and would love to make one similar!!
I love how these look at HSTs, so maybe i would go that route too, maybe a little like the Rebel quilt from libselliot?

I haven’t done much with solids. I would like to use this bundle to make some pillows.
I don’t know what pattern I would use, but I would like to use the fabrics in a quilt.
I would like to use them with some prints for tote bags.
Your quilt is stunning! The blue in it is perfect to bring it all together. With this fabric I would really like to try a similar quilt. Thanks for the giveaway!

I am a quilter at heart. I would have to make a quilt with them. I love the quilt you did. I always run to print fabrics for my quilts. I actually have never used all solids in a quilt before. I think I will use this bundle, if I am lucky enough to win, to make a solid fabric only quilt. Thanks for the chance.
