Our New RJR Booth

Kyler Dannels went to school with Sarah Watts, of Cotton + Steel, in Florida. They met up 10 years later upon going separate ways after graduation. They met up in Atlanta, while Kyler was working for Ralph Lauren in New York City. Upon visiting Sarah in Atlanta and becoming familiar with the area, cost of living and lifestyle, along with wanting a desire for a change of pace, decided that moving there would be a great new adventure.

Today is our latest What Shade Are you blog hop participant, Jenifer, from! Rec Team is the quilt I designed using RJR Supreme Cotton. It’s a mid-century modern inspired design. The bold graphics and wonkyness of the era are so appealing and so fun to translate into fabric! I chose 7 bright colors and 3 shades of gray for my palette. The RJR solids are so vivid and strong, and with the gray, the color pops right off the quilt! Check out her post here
