Mini Quilt with Cotton Supremes Fabric

A few months ago I was contacted by RJR Fabrics about creating a project with some of their Cotton Supreme solids. I had never used Cotton Supremes before and was really impressed. They are a nice weight – not too sheer – with a tight weave, but still have nice drape. I was given the choice of what colors to choose and when I saw the soothing, beachy shades of blue I was immediately drawn to them. (Maybe because they brought back happy feelings about our beach trip last year.) 
RJR has hosted a series featuring their Cotton Supreme solids. You can see the other designers and links to their projects at the RJR Facebook Page. It’s really inspiring to see the variety of styles, projects, and colors used.

This is the little mini quilt I made solely with the solids. The colors I worked with are: Sea Glass (234), Blue Skies, (264), Cove (294), Notting Hill (309), Beach House (242), and Nile Green (90).  This little quilt (22.5” x 22.5”) is a mini version of a quilt in my book, Fabulously Fast Quilts.

Here is the big version (63″ x 81″) from the book called Roundabout.
I had a little text print remnant on hand that worked perfectly for a pieced back. I quilted this little guy myself on the BERNINA 710.

And if these colors look slightly familiar, I liked them so much that I also used all of these solids in the Churn Dash quilt for the Quilt Along.

The official names of the colors I worked with are: Sea Glass (234), Blue Skies, (264), Cove (294), Notting Hill (309), Beach House (242), and Nile Green (90).  And RJR has a fat quarter bundle of these Cotton Supreme solids to give away. To enter, just leave a comment on this post. Giveaway open until Wednesday, April 30 at midight, MST. GIVEAWAY CLOSED.
I love the soothing colors! Can’t wait to have a take me away moment at the beach! Summer can’t come fast enough.

    I&#39;d love to try these solids! I use mainly the Kona solids and some Cotton Coutures (to go with my Sarah Jane prints, of course!), but these look just lovely. :) I LOVE the quilt, too. How clever! My copy of the book just shipped, so it should arrive soon – hooray! (

    These colors are beautiful. The fabric looks absolutely amazing and I&#39;ll certainly take your endorsement. The quilt is fabulous. I&#39;ve been toying with buying the book and that certainly made the decision for me. I&#39;ve been trying to cut back on my purchases since my house is bulging at the seams. Thank you for sharing with about these fabulous fabrics. I can see why you chose

    I like every version of that quilt, but the sea glass quilt is the most tranquil, I think. Thanks for a chance to enter the giveaway. I&#39;d love to work with those lovely solids.

  16. says

    The colors are wonderful. This is the sea glass. Remember how they used to sell those big chunks of sea glass, about 8×8 x 3 inch blocks. I always liked those.

  17. says

    Love your mini. What a neat idea for the back of it too! Again those colors you chose are definitely soothing. I see myself at the beach with the waves rolling in and out.

    The Sea is calling my name since I decorate like crazy with it and Blues, I would love to take this bundle to the Paint store and get them to match it so I could paint my room and then make cushions … great idea, the brain is churning. I think I have a tiny piece of this fabric, and I thought what a great baby blanket backing .. will check out our sponsor and say thank you too.

    So I finally got to go on a small vacation after 6 years, with a friend to Newport Beach California for 3 wonderful days. On Friday as I sat on the beach watching the beautiful waves roll in I was thinking what kind of quilt could I make to remind me of those waves, the next day I check Bloglovin on my kindle at the hotel and the first blog was yours and there is exactly the quilt and colors!

  30. says

    I LOVE these colors! Just like your beach trip, this reminds me of home.. Southern California. I am from CA and moved to KS about 4 years ago. I absolutely would make myself a blanket out of these colors to remind me of the ocean and feel it whenever I miss it so… :o)

  31. says

    So glad you posted the names of the fabrics with their numbers…RJR simply had the number attached without a name. Call me a dumberd! If I win, I don&#39;t have to worry about it. Thanks!
