RJR Color Inspirations Club Quilt-January

I showed you the quilt I designed for the January Color Inspirations Club the other day.  
I picked it up from the quilter this week and 
wanted to show you the fantastic job Kathy did on the quilting.  
RJR wanted all of the quilts custom quilted and boy did Kathy step it up on this one!  
The January color palette is called Forest Floor and 
I wasn't sure about the colors until the fabric arrived and I saw them together, live and in person!  

BEAUTIFUL!! 

You can purchase this group of fabrics right here, at Pink Castle Fabrics.
 The RJR solids were fantastic to work with too.


The next step was to design a quilt to showcase those beautiful colors. 
 I made a few suggestions for a design that I was happy with and Kathy made it shine!

The company is calling the quilt Snow Globes but it didn't seem very wintery to me.
I felt like the design really was like the forest floor the color group was called.
I asked Kathy to quilt it like you were walking in the forest floor.
Stepping stones in the squares but not sure about the snowball blocks.
Kathy filled those in with plants from the forest!

Although it is really difficult to show you in a photo, 
each block has multiple straight lines around it.  
You know how some people use wood to outline a garden pathway?  
That's what this is supposed to simulate!
Amazingly executed.


 Just look at those square stepping stones!  
Brilliant!


Every plant and flower block is different!


My favorite block in the whole quilt?
See the dark purple one in the center of this photo?  
There are bunnies in it, because of course, there are bunnies in my forest!


I could not be happier with how this turned out. 
I put the binding on last night.  
I will be delivering it to Brenda at Pink Castle today for quilt market.  
If you want to purchase any month in the club just head over to Pink Castle and read all about it.

I really appreciate being included in this instillation of the Color Inspirations Club.
I hope I will be able to participate next year too!

So...what do you think of this quilt?


I love it!

I liked the top when you showed up a peek a few days ago. The quilting is over the top. I could sit and look at this quilt for hours!
