A peek behind the scenes at inspiration.
This is the first of an 8 part series for SHIMMER COLLECTION. January 29- April 15, 2014 Jennifer will take you on a behind the scenes tour through inspiration, design, look book, blog hop with popular quilt bloggers, free patterns she has created for you and giveaways. SHIMMER FABRIC IN STORES APRIL 2014!
I have always been inspired by things that Shimmer…Found feathers, frosted leaves, rock crystals and the way the light shines over the ocean. As long as I can remember I have been collecting things that shimmer, whether it's an antique silver spoon, an abalone shell chandelier or bottle after bottle of Martha's craft glitter. I am pretty sure that until the day I die I will be enchanted by such things.
People and animals shimmer too. The way my family glows when sharing something they are proud of or when my girlfriend shows me her new sparkly earrings, it's not just the jewelry that shines…She shines even more. Even Albert, my cat, shimmers. Purring loudly, happy to be inside on a cold winter night.
These images plus many more have been the inspiration behind my new collection called SHIMMER for Robert Kaufman. We are launching the fabric which will be in stores in April along with a fabulous LOOK BOOK to inspire you and give ideas of what you can make. The LOOK BOOK is filled with patterns from top designers and new patterns I designed with Shimmer especially for quilters and sewists like you. Stay connected as the FABRIC and LOOK BOOK are coming soon! And of course, I will do some fabric giveaways, cause it's just plain fun!!
Until next time.
Create and SHIMMER, it's in our nature!
