Shimmer blog tour

Today it’s my stop on the Shimmer by Jennifer Sampou for Robert Kaufman Fabrics blog tour! What’s that you say? A blog tour for a fabric line? That’s right!

You all know that I’m not one to use many prints, but I’m always up for the challenge. So when Jennifer Sampou reached out to me about being a part of the tour I said sure!

IMG_2235

This line is filled with metallics so it’s very appropriately named! I love the additional interest that the shine gives to the fabrics. I decided to dive in and sew up a quick pillow with them!

IMG_2237

First I narrowed down the fabrics to my favs and of course threw in a lot of my beloved solids…

IMG_2240

IMG_2242

Some piecing and chopping lead me to some triangles. I love to work like this, with no plan in mind and just letting the fabric lead me where it does…

IMG_2245
After messing around quite a bit with the options, I decided the orange-y red was wrong and some teal blue was right! I settled on a nice graphic line of the triangles, off set in the blue background.

IMG_2293

A ton of straight line quilting later, and the pillow is all finished up!

Look at that Shimmer shimmer!

    I feel ashamed that this is the first time that I have been to your blog. Believe me, it won’t be the last. I have read your books and been so inspired by you. I have been thinking about joining the Modern Quilt Guild in my area and reading your blog has pushed me over the edge and now I am definitely going to join. You are fabulous and I truly love what you have done to vitalize quilting for all generations of quilters.

    Your pillow is amazing! I adore how you let the Shimmer fabric and your own solids take you where it was meant to go. Terrific!

    First time visiting your blog. I am only on my 2nd quilt ever although I’ve been sewing forever. Love your pillow: the quilting, the layout and the teal! I hope I will have the courage to just jump in without a plan…perhaps after a bit more quilting experience. Thanks for the chance on the charm pack of Shimmer!
