I am happy to admit, it's been pretty great waking up on a daily basis since April 1 with anticipation of what I was going to see on the Shimmer Blog Hop.
Kinda like Christmas in Spring—17 days in a row…I am officially spoiled now.
And blown away with the variety of things that these talented women made with my Shimmer Fabric Collection. In case you didn't see all the projects, here's the overview! They have more fabulous pictures on their blogs so check them out if you haven't already.
Sixteen projects that you can be inspired by and/or make for your own home!
Thank you to all who have participated in this hop and to Robert Kaufman for so generously donating 17 giveaway charm packs and the BIG FAT Q PACK! Welcome to all the new folks who have joined my mailing list and to those who have been following me since my first post last year. I have enjoyed your comments and read every single one
(usually after the kids have gone to bed).
Finally, Shimmer is a collection that is subtle and so luscious in real life. The pictures don't really do it justice especially because the slight change in value, light and color is almost impossible to catch on film. Please go to your local quilt shop to see the fabric or treat yourself by ordering a precut of the entire line to make something really special for yourself or a loved one. You Shimmer, I Shimmer, We'll all Shimmer together, I promise!
BIG FAT Q Pack. 25 pieces= 6.25 yards of entire shimmer collection!! YUM!!
I will draw a name on Monday 4/21/14 from my mailing list (you have three more days to sign up!) for the lucky person who wins the entire collection in Fat Quarters!!
UPDATE! 4/22. CONGRATULATIONS TO SUSAN RYAN from Odessa WA for winning the FQ Pack!!

Welcome to the SHIMMER BLOG HOP. Being a California convert myself, it was appropriate that a west coast group kicks off the SHIMMER BLOG HOP. For the second week, starting on April 7 we have - Amanda Jean Nyberg- Crazy Mom Quilts, April 8- Lee Heinrich- Freshly Pieced April 9- Cheryl Arkinson- Naptime Quilter April 10- Christina Cameli- A Few Scraps April 11- Elizabeth Hartman- Oh Fransson April 12- Faith Jones-Fresh Lemon Quilts April 13- Gemma Jackson- Pretty Bobbins We have a stellar list of 20 bloggers total (complete list below ), each with a SHIMMER prize to give away to their peeps. I hope you will follow along as I will be giving away a grand prize of the entire line of FQ SHIMMER on April 21!
A little background on the talent:
Janice Ryan and Julie Herman are the darlings of the "Let's get it done!" Marketing Department at Robert Kaufman Co (RKC). Last Fall, I went GA-GA over the noodlehead cargo bag Janice made and knew in an instant I wanted to work with her. The cargo bag in the SHIMMER lookbook is her work and I think a tiny war may ensue about who's keeping it! Check her out April 2nd.
Wrapping up the first week is my beloved peeps at C&T Publishing and Stash Books. Not sure if you know this, but it's a family affair. My mother and father-in-law started C&T 35 years ago. My husband, Todd Hensley and his brother Tony and their amazing team continue the tradition of creating the best how-to quilt and sewing books in the world!! Sunday's post includes a wonderful story!
Finally a big thanks to Teresa Coates at Robert Kaufman for helping me launch my first blog hop and all the people who said YES! I am looking forward to what they create and share with us.
As the blog hop moves along, please leave comments on my blog (sign up on my mailing list if you haven't already in order to enter) and the bloggers who are presenting. We'd love to hear what your favorites are along the way and if you are inspired to make a project.
Go CREATE and SHIMMER!!
