Nap Like an Egyptian quilt

Welcome to finish it up Friday! Today is also my day on the RJR Solids Blog Hop brought to you by Brenda of Pink Castle Fabrics and RJR Fabrics.
I had a chance to play with the cotton supreme solids from RJR and I was impressed. The fabric has a nice weight to it (not too thick, not too thin), it is easy to work with (very little fraying, which is super!) and the quality is fantastic (very smooth with no blemishes). I was also impressed with the colors--so vibrant and pretty!
It took me several weeks to decide what to use these pretties for! After much deliberation, I combined the solid bundle with some Anna Maria fabrics from my stash. I sewed them up using Cheryl's pattern Nap Like an Egyptian from Sunday Morning Quilts.
I usually don't work with this many saturated colors at once, (or triangles, for that matter!) but it was a nice change of pace. You may have noticed that some orange fabric worked it's way into the mix. After several blocks things were looking kind of....predictable. The orange "stirs the pot" just a bit, but in a good way!
I quilted it with straight lines to echo the large triangles. I washed and dried it and it puckered up in an unattractive manner. So, I went back and quilted around each small center triangle, then buried about a million thread ends. The additional quilting seemed to help tame the puckering. I could probably add even more quilting, but I think I'm done! After making 200+ quilts I learn a lesson every time. (Unfortunately, some of those lessons have to be learned more than once. Doh!)
The quilt measures about 63" x 70" or so. It's nice lap size and it's already super soft and snuggly!
 
I'm happy to be offering up a fat quarter bundle of the Cotton Supreme Solids to one of my lucky readers. This bundle features the same solid fabrics I used in my quilt (plus white).
The specific colors (from top to bottom) are:
#33 Optical White
#181 Rhododendron
#348 Neon (it IS bright!)
#349 Aloe Verde
#292 Turks and Caicos
#328 Bora Bora
#333 Bougainvillea
#341 Stormy Night

If you would like to win this bundle, please leave me a comment in this post. You can tell me what your favorite day of the week is, your favorite color, your favorite snack, your favorite beverage, your favorite fabric line, your favorite WIP....anything along those lines....just don't say "pick me", please! Thanks a bunch. :)

Now, if you would like to link up your finishes, it's time! Thanks for joining me for finish it up Friday!

I love that they have brought back solids to the quilting world. They really brighten up the prints!

Weirdly enough, my favorite day of the week is Monday. It's the day I get to hear from my brother who is serving a mission in Equador. Thanks for the chance. I love those colors!

Kelly Wilson said...

My favorite color is orange.
My color philosophy (yes my house is quite colorful)
Beige is not a color.
If colors are the same intensity they match.
Pastels are for the weak! : )

I am a magpie when it comes to prints so my solids stash could use a boost. Thanks for the opportunity!

My favorite work in progress is a paper-piecing stars quilt. I just finished piecing the top last night. It's my first paper-piecing project, and it's my first project with all solids. I'm loving how it's turning out! (I might actually have to keep this one, too, instead of giving it away.)

Pontos da Flávia said...

I will pick my favorite frui(s): watermelon & mango, both not so good in Germany, but in Brazil, my home contry!

Suzanne said...

One of my favorite things to do is to have my lunch and catch up on blogs like yours. It's like food for the body and food for the creative soul.

Erin Metzler said...

Well... My favorite kinds of fabric to sew with are solids, so this would be a welcome addition to the stash around here. I appreciate your colorful, scrap-using quilt inspiration in your blog. Thanks.

Lisa E said...

Wow, great quilt and great colors. Favorites... Love chocolate, the color green, So You Think You Can Dance, hot chocolate, Adele, Rob Thomas, Michael Miller fabrics, and potato chips. Thank you for the chance to win!

webby said...

I love the saturated colors in this quilt! That is totally my style! I would have to work hard NOT to have saturated colors... and bright colors for that matter. My favorite day of the week would be Friday, because that means I have all weekend to sew and quilt!

Melva Palmer said...

Love the triangles! I'm always too afraid to try this too far out of the box but maybe I could handle triangles!

But I fall in love with fabric where ever I go shopping and haven't found any fabric I don't fall in love with! Oh, a new love lately is Adorn It! So cute! Really I am working on lining all the walls of my house with fabric! It makes great insulation. I only have a few cupboards/closets with fabric so far! Well some are quilts! Love love love quilting and fabric!

Jasmine said...

I would love to win it.
Favorite day of the week? Saturday of course!

I don't really have a favourite day...a day that I get to be creative is a good one. I love blues and greens.... really love this quilt, simple and effective.

stitchinpenny said...

My favorite day of the week is Saturday. I go to mass and see lots of friends, and if I am out of town it is for fun or family. Great day.

Katherine said...

I love this quilt! Nice bright colors and the solids pull it all together. My favorite color at the moment is pink.

Janet M said...

I just pin basted my scrap churn dash quilt and I used mostly mustard, grey, hot pink, aqua/turquoise with a bit of white/cream & black. I guess those are my favorite colors to work with at the moment. I have to fave them at least until I finish the quilting! :>)

Brynn said...

My favorite beverage is Orangina. My family took a trip right after I graduated from high school, and we drank Orangina constantly. So it brings back such happy (warm) memories. And it's delicious!

Anonymous said...

Birlot said...

My favourite day of the week is Saturday because there's usually some sewing time in there, but especially the third Saturday of the month as I get a day pass to hang out with a group of quilting buddies at the LQS! Luxury.

Quilt Monkey said...

What wonderful colors! I am in the process of moving to a new house and I have been packing/culling my stash. I noticed that I mostly have dark colors but my tastes have changed to brighter fabrics, which I have few of. No wonder I can never seem to use up my stash! The other funny thing is that my favorite color is green and I have a lot of green - but I never seem to use green in my quilts. Go figure. Thanks for the chance!

Leigh Anne said...

My favorite color is Magenta.
My favorite snack is ice cream
My favorite beverage is Diet Pepsi
My favorite fabric line is Meadow
My favorite WIP is my postage stamp

Pick me please :-p

My favorite season is maple syrup season. I get to watch Spring evolve while collecting sap though the Feb/Mar/April months. Then we renew our supply of syrup! And now that it's almost over, I can start my latest quilt! Love those saturated solids! Thanks for the chance!

Jennifer said...

My favorite color is green, which I am going through with-drawls for right about now. We live in northern WI and we are due to have about 10" of more snow by this evening (we are already up to 6")! Boo!!!!... So your cheerful and bright quilt is exactly what I need to see right now! Lovely quilt, Amanda!

Emerauld said...

The quilt is beautiful! My favorite colors are the greens and plum colors.

Cara said...

My favorite color seems to change with my mood, the day, or just about anything. Is that weird? My three year old (all pink, all the time) definitely thinks it is.

Thanks,

Beach Angel said...

I am happiest when I am playing with fabric, cutting pieces for blocks then sewing it all together. My husband told me that he would never understand why I cut up perfectly good material into little pieces and sew it back together. Men!

Carola said...

Thursday. I'm from a family of seven kids, being the 4th, my day was Thursday. On that day we had to set and clear the table, say grace, and generally be the helper. If there was anything special - like going with Dad in the car, we got that on our day too! I'm an avid follower of your blog. I love finish it up Friday.

Izzy said...

This is gorgeous! The colours are so bright and happy. Please pick me! :-)

Favorite fabric designer -- AMH. This is lovely! I'm so glad there are lots of new solids available these days...Kona has a wide range but the hand of it is...not my favorite. :)

Hollie said...

Love, love the colorful Nap like an Egyptain! My favorite thing is the names of the fabric lines or the fabric names themselves. Where do they come up with those? Love Bougainvillea

maureen said...

Annie said...

Your title caught my eye this time...SOLIDS! At our Quilt Group meeting last week, President Maria aka apiecefullife.com announced that our challenge for our next quilt show would be SOLIDS! Some people weren't so pleased, but I was delighted at the idea. I love ALL the colours of the rainbow and the idea of solids, makes my mid crazy thinking of so many possibilities.

Ginny said...

Love this quilt - such vibrant colors! My favorite holiday is July 4th! Summer, sand and fireworks! Yay!

Patti Smith said...

Kate said...

Love the directions here: I love that I can quilt... and make beautiful beautiful things, and blog on the web about them - how cool!!!

Colleen said...

My favorite day is the day I get to quilt, with nothing else on the calendar! I'm working on the log cabin quilt in Sunday Morning Quilts - love how it is coming together.

laura black said...

My favorite thing is trying all the new stuff out there! I didn't quilt much for the last 4 years or so! Your book was one of the first books I bought, my daughter and I both have "the Sunday Morning quilt". I have been doing "modern quilting" for years and didn't even know it :0) Right now I am playing with selvages, who would have guessed! Some things have changed!

Mary Graff said...

Welcome back! I hope you had some restful time. I love to incorporate yellow, even a tiny bit, into almost every room of my house and most of my projects. How can you not smile when you see a little bit of yellow?

Ursula said...

Love your quilt! It's just gorgeous! My favorite thing to do other than is quilt is to bake. Unfortunately it's just hubby and me and we don't need it.

Rachel said...

I love the colors in the quilt. I'm scared of triangles!

Karen said...

My favorite beverage is masala chai tea. If I could live on just chai, I would.

Erica said...

Hmm, I think the best day of the week is Friday but I love all weekend days!

Jennifer Price said...

My favorite type of blog is one that teaches me something, like this one. My take away is that more quilting can help limit the 'bunchies'

Karen said...

Welcome back to blogging! I like the fabric colors in this quilt.

Ellen said...

Love your quilt. My favorite color is purple.

Bridgit said...

Hello! My. Favorite WIP is the quilt I'm plotting for my daughter's 6th birthday (July). Right now, my favorite thing to find is inspiring quilts w/o white, since I'd like it to look good for awhile, but I expect her to use it hard, if you know what I mean. The colors in this quilt would be a HUGE hit with her. Thanks for the inspiration. I love what you did with the solids.

Joyful Quilter said...

My favorite candy (thank goodness I can only find it around Easter) are Brach's Spiced Jelly Bird Eggs...Mmmmm so good.

Kate said...

My favourite colour is green but I rarely use it in quilts. Not sure why. And, being on maternity leave, every day of the week feels the same to me :-)

Deb said...

Favorite day: Saturday because my husband is home.
Favorite color: Purple although red is a close second.
Favorite thing to pass the time: reading quilting blogs :)

Kathy said...

My favorite day of this week will be Saturday because we're having a combined birthday celebration at my house. My husband's, my daughter's, and my granddaughter's birthdays are all in April. Simmered a big pot of sauce all day long today for a spaghetti birthday dinner! BTW, love those solids!!

scottylover said...

My favorite day of the week is Thursday because it has my favorite shows on and I know Friday is coming! :) I have heard these solids are wonderful and would love to try them out for myself!

Jan Marie said...

I like the saturated colors it makes it really modern. My favorite color is Yellow but for some reason I never seem to use it in my quilts.

maybe said...

Love the colours and the triangles. Is the pattern available? My WIP is a quilt with painted nursery rhyme themes for my grand son (just 4 days old). My current favourite colour is aloe Vera green.

jmniffer said...

suemac said...

I like the wine colored solid. I back into purple after the radiant orchid quilt contest.

Amy Verne said...

I am not sure if I quilt or just collect fabric. So many WIP and so few finishes. LOVE the quilt. raverne@comcast.net

SeeAmySew- Amy Caldwell said...

Love all the color in your quilt!!!
My favorite is any shade of purple, but I am trying to step out of my comfort zone and try more vibrant mixes of color. And my new favorite shape here lately are triangles. Definitely adding a quilt like this to my to-do list.

linda rose said...

I love the colors in the quilt. I'm on a chevron kick and I've got some fabric screaming for me to make it into a chevron quilt using your tutorial here on your blog. So for now that my favorite. Maybe someday I will be able to share it on finish it up Friday. :)

Mama Said Sew said...

All those saturated colors look fantastic in your quilt! My favorite day of the week is Saturday because I get to sleep in!

Caroline said...

What a crazy fun quilt! The bright colors are so nice and cheery.

My favorite day of the week is any day I get in my workouts. They provide some much needed energy and sense of accomplishment at the start of my day. After that everything else is just cream! :)

Cheryl Kirk said...

I love the solids so bright and fun. My favorite color has to be turquoise.

Brooke @ little b quilts said...

I love a great sunny day. And a pretty spring green fabric. It's my favorite happy binding color :-)

Jeneta said...

Wow - I think your choice of fabrics has really fulfilled the potential of Cheryl's quilt design! Of course, Nap Like an Egyptian would look good in anything, but I particularly like it with your fabrics. Oh, and I love hot chocolates or Milo (but they must be made with full fat milk. No water and no skim milk thanks!).

AM Hale said...

My favorite color is orange, but I love this bundle anyway!

Kim said...

Love the cheery colors in your quilt. I would have to say my favorite day of the week is Friday because I get to relax and heal my sore muscles from working out all week and spending time with my family.

Rita said...

My favourite time of year is Spring. Colour shows up again after the white of winter.

Shar said...

I love a Monday. Because I love to have a fresh start on the week and be ready start on all my projects with lots of energy!

My favorite day of the week is Sunday. I love having a peaceful day together where we put aside the pressures and stresses of the world and focus on what is most important: God and family.

Melissa said...

My favorite day of the week is Friday. It's my last work day, and I can start to unwind. I usually peak at anything sewing related Friday evening. I am loving your quilt, and would love to get my hands on that neon green colored fabric.

Karen said...

Great quilt and gorgeous colours.
I am retired so every day of the week is wonderful. And I can't pick a favourite colour because I love rainbows!!

Kristine said...

My favorite color is purple. Favorite snack? Probably a nice high quality dark chocolate.

Cindy Dahlgren said...

I am loving solids at the moment, especially bright ones. I really like the Walk like an Egyptian quilt. It looks a little out of my league yet, but soon I'll try it.

Rachel said...

My favorite all solids quilt is ara janes 3/4 log cabin quilt :)

Sharon said...

I love this quilt. The colors just sparkle. My favorite color is turquoise.

Nice quilt you made, even though my favourite shape in quilts is a square!

Sue Wild said...

Nice to see the fabrics in action as well as in a bundle, they go so well together and with the bold prints too. My favourite block is Flying Geese.

My favorite color is red - to me it's a neutral. I do want to make something with more modern fabrics though. All those bright prints just come naturally to me.

Love your quilt and those solids. I love the names of them also. Right now my favorite day is April 16th...the day after tax season is over!

My favourite singer - Elvis. And my favourite song - Love me Tender!

I remember it well way back when, that's when I fell in love with Elvis!

Wow, I have missed you! I am off blogging myself at the moment. Just wondering if there is any point! Not sure if it is for me... My favourite day of the week is Saturday. My family of 4 is all together and we do things together and hang out and eat our meals together and aren't rushing.

What a pretty quilt! I love Nap Like an Egyptian. Not that I've ever made it, but I'd love to try it some time. I have to say my favourite colour is green, but orange and purple are also pretty high up there.

Love those fabrics and the description of the quality! Here is a different favorite...my favorite campground is Twin Shores in Darnley, PrinceEdward Island, Canada.

My favourite colour is purple, and I have to try not to put it into every single quilt I make!

My favourite place is St Ives in Cornwall (UK). I'm there now and as I paperpiece hexagons for a WIP I can look out the window and see just about all those colours in the landscape around me. The shades of blue echo the sea when the sun comes out; the green and neon are reflected in the hillside and even the sand. I can see the rhododendron and bougainvillea in the sunset and I've certainly seen one or two stormy nights down here! St Ives is a place for art in all media and these colours capture it perfectly. I can feel another WIP coming on :)

So pretty - I love Sundays - the day of the Lord.

Jessica Reno said...

I love your blog. I think I might try the block quilt you posted a couple days ago with the white border for my daughter's two little sisters at college.

My favorite color these days is Turquoise but I always need spell check to get it spelled right.

sewlightly said...

I don't really have a favorite day of the week. I love my job and I also love my home life, so it all balances out. I try to view each day as a blessing. I do love the colors yellow and green especially well. As far as other favorites, chocolate, wine, cheese, fun times spent with girl friends, quilting, and lovely crinkly quilty goodness in a freshly washed new quilt!!

I love the way the Nap Like an Egyptian turned out!! I'd love to use those yummy solids with some of my crazy cat fabric stash. Maybe I'll use my new GO! isosceles triangle die.

Louise Marie said...

Sharon Eshlaman said...

My favorite vacation is: Stay at my brother's home to babysit for his cat while he's out of town. I spend the entire week sewing, blogging, drinking coffee, watching movies and taking long walks! It's so refreshing and relaxing,

ozone3 said...

How about favorite movie???

I love The Out-of-Towners (the original with Jack Lemmon). Could watch it a million times and still laugh like crazy.

Thanks for the chance to win!!

Johanna Lovering said...

I love that very interesting shade of green. Love how that solids frame the prints in your quilt.

Deborah DeBerry said...

A few of my favorite things are Fridays, coffee, and planning in my head. When I saw your beautiful colorful quilt, I looked at my stash. It is seriously lacking solid colors and bold prints, although a lot of my fabric read as solid. I have always loved solid color quilts, but I have been told they are boring. I think NOT! Design then becomes the visual draw.

Lee Schon said...

I love the quilt. The colors really pop. I can see all kinds of quilts using any of these colors. My favorite is the purple!

Silly Milly said...

My favorite name from the bundle is #292 Turks and Caicos. Thanks for reminding me about this great pattern that can showcase larger prints! Just what I was looking for to use up some amy butler prints

Michele said...

I'm loving purple at the moment and am excited to be working on my bluebird park hedgehog WIP today!

Barb said...

One of my favorite things to do is look at quilts on blogs! This quilt is stunning!

sewok said...

Love your quilt because of the solids. They really make it sparkle. Favorite day of the week: any day hubby goes fishing 'cuz there's no meals to cook and I can sew all day long!

My favorite color is purple and my favorite type of exercise is running with a group of mother runners.

Glad to have you back posting pix of your great work.

I seem to be addicted to solids and prints with white these days. This is a great opportunity to think about taking my fabric selections in another direction for a change.

Deb said...

I love my stash of fabric scraps! They are organized by color, but all the different patterns makes them so interesting to look at! Almost harder to use up than my stash!

Teri said...

Great quilt. The triangles are worth the extra effort. I am currently loving orange as a favorite color.

Sandra Louise said...

My favorite season is fall, my favorite place is the beach, and my favorite WIP is the plus sign quilt I'm currently working on. :)

Diane said...

my favorite color is BLUE and blue :)

margaret said...

always green, not sure about the day of the week as being retired one day is much like another. Coffee if not talking about alcohol! These solids are so vivid very nice indeed
