And they exceeded my expectations. I mixed them in with some of the prints from Rashida Coleman Hale's new Mochi collection. Since Cotton + Steel is actually a division of RJR fabrics, the RJR solids coordinate perfectly with the collections.
The quilt looks more complicated than it actually is: each of the diamonds is made up of 2 triangles (so there are no y-seams) and I cut the fabric with my favorite triangle ruler.
I didn't want the quilting to be too dense since the fabrics are incredibly soft and have a wonderful drape, so I quilted a diamond crosshatch. The finished quilt has a nice, snuggly feel.
RJR has generously offered a giveaway of some of their beautiful solids.
