What Shade are You with Karie Jewell
What shade are you?????
I’m Karie (IG karie_twokwikquilters)
I started quilting when I was pregnant with my second child… 25 years ago. I started designing and publishing patterns in 2001 and have more than 70 patterns to my name.
I was so excited when RJR asked me to participate in this project back in August and knew I wanted to make this quilt to show off the awesome colors that RJR offers. My first instinct was to go rainbow…. because, DUH!😜 But then realized so many others wonderful people had already done rainbow and I wanted to show off the color progression you can achieve with their wide range of colors offered.
I saw this photo on Pinterest from https://www.etsy.com/shop/HeatherMontgomeryArt?ref=l2-shopheader-name. This also left me the wonderful opportunity to use something other than white, gray or black for my background. I think I am totally guilty of getting stuck in my favorite color combos and forget that sometimes we need to get kicked out of our comfort zone. I have always loved color progression even more than rainbow (if you have ever had my name in a swap you know I always list the right COLOR is more important to me than a favorite designer). Blue to green has always been my favorite!
Kwik Spanish Tiles shows you just how rich and wonderful this section of the color wheel is in RJR’s collection.
I used color 234 Sea Glass for my background and 353 Twilight for my checkerboard. The center is made using 106 and 289 Proud as a Peacock.
The flower tiles were done using the following:
328 Bora Bora
292 Turks & Caicos
349 Aloe Verde
346 Sour Apple
127 Kelly Green
329 Emerald City
290 Putting Green
391 Robin’s Egg
To make this quilt come alive, though I knew I wanted my friend Carrie of http://www.gotchacoveredquilting.com/machine-quilting/ to do the job. She put in more than 17 hours worth of custom work into this 65″x65″ quilt using a million different Aurifil threads to make the designs pop truly making it look worthy of it’s name.
