RJR Fabrics Cotton Solid Supremes Blog Hop

Hey ya'll!
RJR Fabrics is having a Blog Hop for their Cotton Supreme Solids!  As you might know already, I love RJR solids. There are tons of colors and the fabrics are super soft.  They asked me to join the blog hop and I couldn't say no! Make sure you check out all of the Cotton Supreme Solids on their website and also check out the Cotton Supreme Solids Blog Hop Facebook page!

So, I chose to use the new Cotton + Steel fabrics to go along with my Cotton Supreme Solids.  I Just love the new C + S fabrics and they're even prettier in person! 
In case ya'll want to know what fabrics I used in all of my quilts, here are the numbers:

Cotton Supreme Solids-they all begin with (9617)

176, 181, 204, 264, 285, 289, 290, 311, 326, 331, 342, 366, 314, 331, 339

My first quilt is called Galaxy and the pattern will be available soon! 

I had a bunch of triangle scraps left over from the Galaxy quilt and thought they were just too pretty to throw away, so because I'm a crazy person, I sewed them all together as HST and made a scrappy modern quilt! The HST are 2" finished.

And finally, the last quilt I made for this blog hop is called Stoplight.  You can find the Stoplight pattern in our online shop or on Craftsy and offers a baby or lap size version! 

Thanks to RJR for letting me participate in the Cotton Supreme Solids Blog Hop! Make sure ya'll check out all of the other blog hop stops and pick yourself up some RJR Solids at Pink Castle Fabrics.

Oh yeah, and RJR generously donated a FQ bundle of solids with the colors I used! 
Please leave a comment below and I will pick a winner next Friday, August 29th!  Make sure I have an email address to get ahold of you if you win.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

Texas QAL

I joined late in the game but as soon as I came across the Deep in the Heart of Texas QAL I HAD to make a Texas quilt!  Being born and raised in Texas and living in the great state for 19 years, I needed to make a Texas quilt (I mean come on, I've been hoarding special Texas fabrics for years!  When I saw  the QAL over at Pretty Little Quilts, I jumped in and made the quilt in a few days!  It went together fast and the directions were great.  I had to adjust mine just a little bit because I wanted to finish mine before the QAL was over and I decided to omit the special city blocks.
Texas will ALWAYS hold a special place in my heart and I miss it dearly!  Texans are known for their pride and would be described as conceited about their state. In 7th grade, we even have an entire year of Texas history replacing other history.  Unless you've lived there, you might not fully understand the greatness of the state.  I love being from Texas and will always be a Texan no matter where I live.
Anywho, here is my awesome Texas quilt and if you want to make one too and see other examples make sure you hop on over to Pretty Little Quilts blog; and thanks for the awesome pattern!

I don't blog as often due to my crazy 2 1/2 year old who keeps me busy but I Instagram everyday, so follow me for more quilting updates!
