Hi there, I'm Cindy Cooksey, and welcome to my blog, on Day 2 of the hop skip jump blog hop.
I was invited to make a 18" quilt square to promote Jamie Fingal's new fabric line from RJR Fabrics, called hopscotch. These come from hand drawn designs from Jamie's notebooks.
This is the fabric I chose from her line. Isn't it yummy? With names like Loop de Loop - Grass, Deconstructed Dandelions - Chalkboard, and Intertwining Puddles - Tomato. Cross Hatch - Zebra. There are 83 different fabrics in the line, which made it hard to choose just ten. But I love the colorful ones I selected.
I had a design all worked out by the time I received the fabrics in the mail, and the quilt went together easily. I rearranged the flowers a little, to improve the balance of the design, and machine quilted it.
I was thrilled by the intense colors!
A touch of hand embroidery here and there.
The line will debut at Spring Quilt Market in St. Louis in mid-May, and the fabric will ship to stores in
