What Shade are You with Jayme Christensen

Hey everyone! My name is Jayme, but you may know me as @findingsweetland in the quilting community. I started quilting about 6 years ago and super love every aspect of it, from the fabric to the people.

I was lucky enough to be able to join the RJR Fabrics #whatshadeareyou blog series and I’m thrilled to show you my finished quilt.

I call it “Do Granny a Solid”. Okay so it’s not very creative but I’m a quilter, not a writer.

I used the following Cotton Supreme Solids for my blocks with coordinating Cotton + Steel Basics thrown in:

Melody 371
Wimbledon 205
Guava 373
Toyboat 366
Atlantica 374
Harlequin 358
Gelato 414
Sunny Delight 326
Goldilocks 368
Spearmint 389
Lilac Festival 378
Indigo 191

I also used Kerchief 364 for my background, Schooner 392 for my binding, and 0045-02 Party Dresses from Jubilee by Melody Miller for my backing.

I used Trish’s (Notes of Sincerity) “No Waste Large Granny Square Tutorial” for my blocks. Then I used the rest of the Kerchief solid to add some offset borders because I wanted to take that traditional style block and modernize the quilt top by steering clear of an even border.

It is quilted with a basic stipple with some swirls thrown in for fun.

The RJR Cotton Supreme Solids were a dream to work with and there are so many color options. This quilt is so rich and vibrant and would not look that way without the quality and colors RJR provides.

I must give a huge thank you to RJR for letting me participate in this blog series! I am honored to be in such amazingly creative company on this one.
