RJR Fabricsin blogissa ja Instagramissa esitellään heidän yksivärisistä kankaista tehtyjä tilkkutöitä teemalla #What shade are you. Sain olla yhtenä tekijänä mukana omalla työlläni. Mallin sai valita itse, oma tai jonkun muun. Olen pitkään halunnut tehdä The Tumbler mallin, kirjasta "Quilt with Tula & Angela". Koska siihen tarvitaan aika paljon eri sävyisiä kankaita, eikä niitä ole minulta löytynyt, en ole sitä tätä ennen tehnyt. Nyt kun pääsin oikein värikartasta valitsemaan kankaat, niin päätin toteuttaa sen.
Kiitoksia RJR fabrics kun sain olla mukana!
RJR Fabrics has a good selection of solid fabrics. I was lucky to get a nice pile of them and make a quilt. You can see beautiful quilts on their blog and Instagram with a theme #What shade are you.
When I was asked to take part in this challenge it was very exiting. At first I wasn't sure would I make my own pattern or someone else's. For a long time I have wanted to make this pattern from a book called Quilt with Tula and Angela. Now I had an opportunity to choose fabrics from a wide color range so I decided to make it. This pattern is called The Tumbler. I did few changes to the pattern.
I was a little nervous if I was able to pick out the right colors in order to get enough contrast to the cubes. I feel like I did okay.
For the backing I wanted something light. I picked this fun black and white print because fabrics
with text are my favorites. The quilting emphases the three dimensional effect. Because I'm not a
master in free motion quilting I decided to do something somewhat simple.
Here in Helsinki the weather has been grey and rainy week after week. It has been really challenging
to take good pictures of my projects. Luckily during the weekend there was one bright day and even some sun.
Than you RJR fabrics for this opportunity, it was really fun to sew with your solids.
I love this quilt so much.
