The Alternate Ending Quilt by Kristy Sachs


Hey, guys! I’m Kristy Sachs from Rock Baby Scissors. You can find me on Instagram, Etsy and Facebook:




I made the Alternate Ending Quilt using RJR’s Cotton Supreme Solids.

I was floored when asked to participate in the What Shade Are You? Blog Hop as I’m still fairly new to quilting. I’ve only finished a handful and I had never followed a quilt pattern before, so I figured I better knock it out of the park and go BIG to celebrate such an honor! An 800 piece quilt? Sure, why not! As a true lover of color order and everything rainbow the Alternate Ending Quilt by Sarah of CoopCrafts was my first choice when it came to using such brilliant shades of solids.



The colors I chose for my quilt top are:
1. Tourmaline
2. Lemon Chiffon
3. Citron
4. Carrot
5. Tangerine Dream
6. Tropicana
7. Chili Pepper
8. Orchid
9. Hot Pink
10. Tickled Pink
11. Rhododendron
12. Amethyst
13. Hydrangea
14. Purple Haze
15. Bougainvillea
16. Periwinkle
17. Caviar
18. Electric Blue
19. Tuks & Caicos
20. Horizon
21. Toyboat
22. Neon
23. Sour Apple
24. Grass is Always Greener
25. Emerald City

The backing:
Cotton+Steel Tiny Tiles in Aqua

The backing:
Cotton+Steel Gust in Midnight



The shades of Cotton Supreme Solids work so well together in this geometric dream of a quilt.


For the quilting I went with wavy lines in Guttermann Mara 100 color #1 which is a creamy off-white. I wanted something neutral which wouldn’t pull focus away from the colors and hard lines of the quilt.

I want to thank RJR for the opportunity to be a part of their What Shade Are You? Blog Hop. It was an exceptionally fun learning experience.
