Thank you ♥
Local quitstore which I can recommend is “Cotton – Color” in Riehen near Basel but it isn’t easy to reach by public transport… Which cities do you visit?

Hi all! My name is Jennifer, I’m the person behind the screen bringing you news on all things RJR and I’m happy to introduce a new segment on our blog called, “Sew Lately…” A better way to show everyone the exciting things going on with us! Be sure to subscribe to our blog so you won’t miss any exciting news!
So lately here at RJR we took a peak inside the RJR art studio where the creative duo behind Flaurie & Finch, Linda Fitch and Vanessa Stevens are hard at work on their quilt, Daisy Day Dream which features Blossom Batiks.
Vanessa shares, “We decided to kick off the Flaurie & Finch brand with a line of batik fabrics. Linda and I love to design batiks because of the range and depth of color that is achievable, and since they are hand dyed in Indonesia, every piece is uniquely special”.
This entire collection can coordinate together or can be split into five distinct color groupings: Bella Vita, Tiger Lily, Blue Bonnet, Freesia, and Starling. As you can see from the Daisy Day Dream quilt Vanessa is working on the color variations work beautifully together!
Want to find out how you can win a FQ bundle of these amazing batiks? Well keep on reading!
Can you believe its all pieced? Looks like all these ladies need to do are the borders and quilting!
Leave a comment on this post about what you like most about this new line for an opportunity to win a FQ bundle of the color grouping of your choice! Make sure to check out their collection Blossom Batiks available now and stay tuned for more exciting Sew Lately news 😉
Happy quilting from RJR!
If you haven’t yet, then it’s time you do. And we have just the program for you. It’s called CIC or Color Inspirations Club. CIC is a fat quarter solid-of-the-month club that is offered at your local quilt shop. It features custom Cotton Supreme Solid color stories hand selected by the talented Brenda Ratliff of Just A Bit Frayed. There are 12 color stories in all. Each color story features 10 different Cotton Supreme Solids including 11 NEW solid colors. CIC is a great affordable way for you to build your stash of RJR’s Cotton Supreme Solids over the course of a year, 10 fabrics at a time. To support the program, we have an array of FREE mini quilt patterns made from the colors in each specific color story. Learn more about it by browsing our CIC brochure. Need to find a participating shop? Simply visit our Shop Directory.
Here’s a little history. RJR’s Cotton Supreme Solids were first introduced on the market in the late 1980s, and designed by quilter icon Bonnie Leman, founder and editor of Quilter’s Newsletter Magazine. She chose a construction specifically for quilt making, setting the standard for quality and color. Today, RJR continues to produce the most consistent, high quality solids in the marketplace. Now available in 190 different colors, Cotton Supreme Solids are manufactured with a silky finish for luster and a soft hand, which makes them simply irresistible.
Lynette Anderson got into quilting when she worked on her baby quilt for her first born. She has the quilt still and used it as an inspiration for her new pattern, which will be available on her website soon. She has recently reworked her design to incorporate fabrics from her fabrics lines with RJR; Bread and Butter and Pocket Full of Daisies. I love the crib size baby quilt, the stitchery is lovely.
SKU’s used are: Floral 2002-003, Stripe 2007-001, and Grey 2407-001.
Share with us your first quilt design and #quilwithlove story to be entered in to win a fat quarter bundle of some of her Bread and Butter collection.
