I've built this palette around Sarah Watts lovely Stampede print from her first Cotton and Steel line August. I'm in love with the colours in this print and was excited to work some solids into the mix!
I'll be honest and say that little bits of these solids have been getting cut off here and there over the course of the last few months, i've found myself working with a lot of Cotton and Steel lately and these solids just slide right in. I think most of my projects as of late, that include solids, have been from this pull. But the one that shows them all to their best, is what i'm calling my Wild Goose Stampede Pillow!
Get it? It's a wild goose chase block but the center fabric is called Stampede - Wild Goose Stampede!! Oh Nicole you're so funny! (that's what i imagine you're all saying right now... don't burst my bubble here folks!)
It's a simple block to make and hey look!...
I made a tutorial for everyone!
See, i told you it was easy!
Then quilt it up in anyway you like, i opted for the straight line V formation, in Aurifil brass of course ;)
And turn it into a pillow! I backed mine in the same Stampede print and just did a simple zipper closure at the bottom.
So to see more amazing things made with RJR Cotton Supreme Solids make sure to check out their Facebook page!!
Now go forth and leave a comment (just one)... your fat quarter bundle awaits! (i'll use the fancy random number generator dealie to pick a winner on... hmmm... Tuesday!) Good Luck!!
High fives to RJR Fabrics for letting me play with such fantastic solids and for generously letting one of my friends play too!
