What Shade are You with Nikki Clark Murray
Hello everyone! I’m Nikki Clark Murray aka @babylovequilts on Instagram. I am a avid sewer of quilts, blankets, and baby accessories and I am so happy to be sharing my latest quilt design with you all. When RJR Fabrics asked me to be a part of this blog hop, I was so excited I screamed a little, which was then followed by lots and lots of dancing.
I have been designing my own quilts for several years now, and I knew from the start of this project that I was going to design something brand spanking new for it. I had so many designs floating around in my head, I knew it was going to be hard to pick just one.
The inspiration for the quilt came to me one day while I was on a walk with my kids. I saw the quote “be the rainbow in someone’s cloud” earlier that day and thought… How can I make that into a quilt? Naturally the quilt had to be a burst of color, seeing as its a rainbow, so I opened up the color card and started planning. 34 colors later, this is what I chose for the quilt top…
Sunny Side Up
Turks and Caicos
For the backing I chose the Cotton + Steel’s Printshop Starry in Seaglass as I thought it went well with the theme of the quilts, plus that print is just super adorable.
In the end, the quilt turned out to be more beautiful than I thought. It measures at 60×72 and consists of 270 half square triangles.
After I was done taking pictures of the quilt, I realized that this will be the first quilt, in a long time, that I actually get to keep for myself! I haven’t been able to do some selfish sewing in a very long time, and when I do, I never get to fully finish it (you should see my UFO pile, its HUGE). So thank you RJR Fabrics for asking me to make a quilt using their amazing Cotton Supreme Solids, they are truly wonderful to work with and for allowing me to finish a project that turned out truly amazing.
Be sure to stop by @rjrfabrics and my page @babylovequilts, as there will be an amazing giveaway. Trust me its something you dont want to miss out on.
