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.

For a great selection of RJR Cotton Supremes, check out Pink Castle Fabrics. They have most of these colors, as well as a huge variety more, in stock.
