RJR Supreme Solids Blog Hop & A Give Away! Pinwheel Coaster Tutorial, Too!!!



I am delighted to be a part of the RJR Supreme Solids Blog Hop.



My original design is the quilt pictured made with half square triangles.  The colors graduate from dark to light with the motifs fading at the edge of the quilt.  I used the quilt design as inspiration for a table runner and coordination coasters.    

I think the colors are perfect for summer.  Read through this post and you will find a simple tutorial to make your own set of summer coasters at the end of this post!


RJR Supreme solids cottons are a lovely quality with a beautiful hand and saturated colors.
The colors I used pictured in the pinwheel coasters from Left to Right, Top to Bottom are :

Rio #311, Lemon Chiffon #182, Cornflower #94
Crimson #108, Custard #265, Celeste #102
Background Fabric - French Vanilla #111



Colors used in the table runner:

Background: French Vanilla #111, Center Star - Crimson #108,  Right and Left Stars - Rio #311, Yellow Border stars - Cornflower #94l

RJR Supreme solids can be found at Pink Castle Fabrics [Here]

All the swatches for RJR Solids can be found on their site [Here]

A link to the Facebook page with all the beautiful projects can be found [Here]

RJR is giving away a FQ set of all the solids used in my projects!
Please leave a comment on this post and tell me what you would make with the FQ set of RJR Supreme solids.  Give away is open to US and Canadian residents.
Commenting is open until June 12th, 2014, 9:00 p.m. PST.
Good Luck  : )

  48. I'd love to make the quilt, but first a smaller project such as the coasters and/or tablerunner would be a better choice for me. All of them are sooo lovely. Thanks for sharing your wonderful creations with us! Thank you too, for a chance to win some nice fabrics! Happy summer!

  51. I have so many quilt designs on my "to do" list that I'm sure I could come up with something to use these FQs in. On the other hand, I love doing table runners so I can play around with quilting designs. It's easier to experiment on something small & easier to handle. Thanks so much for a chance at the give-away.
