'hopscotch'

Welcome to the the last stop on the 'hopscotch' Blog Hop

"Purple Joins a Flock of Orange"

My friend Jamie Fingal, who has her art studio a mile up the street from mine in Orange, California, is soon to release another fabric line which she has designed for RJR fabrics. This extensive line will debut at Spring Market in St. Louis later this month. Referred to as a super blender line, these 'tone-on-tone' fabrics, printed in Jamie's signature riot of bold color, 
will be prominently displayed in the RJR booth.









I was invited by Jamie to create an 18" x 18" sample quilt using fabrics I selected from her new line. It was a difficult job. There are over 80 choices!
I have been lucky enough to see Jamie's extensive journal collection that she fills daily with drawings in her unique and whimsical style. It was from these sketchbooks that RJR narrowed her designs down until 11 were selected, a difficult task as her collection of images is so vast. These 11 drawings were each printed in several color-ways, amounting to the full collection of 83 prints! 

Eighteen of Jamie's new fabrics have been incorporated into my sample quilt, 
allowing for a blend of rich color and a subtle variety of hues.

I added a bit of fun to the back side. One more orange bird heading home to the flock.

This wraps up our blog hop for Jamie's new incredible fabric line, 'hopscotch' by RJR fabrics.
Amazing, right!
Thank you for visiting.
