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!!
