What Shade are You with Christine Joubert

What Shade Are You Logo 2016

Hello ! My name is Christine, aka @lopolokko on Instagram I’m a self taught french quilter since 2012. Or let’s say I’m totally addicted since I tried my very first one : can’t stop buying fabrics, always a new design to try, 4 WIP ongoing in parallel and never enough time ….

So when RJR fabrics asked me to join their What Shade Are You challenge, I was very proud and excited, and immediately answered a loud YES !

The came the color card … What shade am I ? It took me ages to decide !!!! I wanted something luminous and bright, and when I received my bundle, yes it was, but I wasn’t fully happy. But RJR people are so nice they offered me to change my mind, and then came a second package.

Amethyst 215
Hydrangea 214
Feeling blue 335

Riveira 274
Turks & caicos 292
Notting Hill 309RP
Peridot 342
Neon 348

And I couldn’t resist to add some cotton + steel prints:

Sarah Watts – Bear Hugs 5053-1
Rashida Coleman Raindrop –Koinobori Pear 1936-01
Basic Notorious – Plummy 5000-006

For the quilt design, I fell in love with an off centre medallion pattern created by Jo Avery (@mybearpaw on IG) « mix+match medallion », published in love quilting and patchwork magazin #23. Although a few additions of my own, I tried my best to stick to this awesome plan …

So after a summer of color hesitations, I focused on making this quilt during the last months, giving up temporarily my other projects .

And here we are ! Taking the chance of holidays by the ocean, we went to the beach with the quilt and enjoyed a cool time shooting pictures under the sun !
