It's My Day for RJR's "What Shade Are You?" 2018 Blog Hop
I'm so super excited to be back on RJR's, What Shade are You, Blog Hop for 2018! I was involved back in Oct. of 2014 showcasing a fun modern quilt, designed using a technique from the book Quilting Modern, and I had so much fun I thought I'd submitted another quilt idea. This time a twist on my Topographical Quilt pattern, and was so thrilled to be selected.
Just a quick intro for new readers and all those joining in on the Blog Hop who may not know me... I'm Sandy a wife, mom of 3, mother-in-law to 2 and Nana to one sweet granddaughter. I've always been a crafter/sewer, and started quilting/blogging back in 2012. Now I'm designing my own quilt patterns and finishing my own quilts (computerized long arm) and loving every minute of this amazing journey. The online community of friends I've found and the inspirational works I see everyday, I just love it!! I share all of my journey here on my website UpStairsHobbyRoom , @upstairshobbyroom on Instagram and FaceBook I would love to have you follow along.
Let's get to the fun part though.....I don't know about you but when I ask myself the question, What shade are you? I can't commit...😜. It changes with my mood, the weather, the time of year....and I just love colour...so why commit to just one...I'm a rainbow girl...so of course my quilt project includes all the colours a girl could ask for and all the shades too...!!! And RJR had me covered with their amazing selection Cotton Supreme Solids

You'll notice that some of the shades are very closely related and the camera didn't quite capture the variations on some...but trust me in person all the shades show...
The Topographical Rainbow measure approximately 108" x 110...but it can be made smaller and laid out in so many ways...here are just a few ideas...The revised Topographical Quilt Pattern is now available in my pattern shop!! Look for it here or in the drop down menu!
