RJR Contests - A Little Bit Country, A Little Bit Rock 'n' Roll
Sponsored by RJR Fabrics Fans have loved the poetry and emotion of country music since it was first recorded in the 1920s. In the 1950s, rock 'n' roll helped to define a distinct pop culture with music, fashion, and social trends. Much like music, quilting has provided artists with a canvas for self-expression. Whether it reflects a classic design, a breakaway from the traditional mold, or something in-between, quiltmaking has survived and flourished because of its ability, as an art form, to adapt to a changing society. We invite you to create a quilt that demonstrates how quilting reflects you. Choose your fabrics from any RJR collection, the new Paint Box Prints by Lynette Jensen of Thimbleberries (a little bit country), the Jinny Beyer Palette (a little bit rock 'n' roll), or even a little bit of each.Categories:
