***Giveaway Closed–congrats to Michele Tinker, the winner!***
I’m so happy to be part of the blog hop for Jennifer Sampou’s fabric line, Shimmer. I first met Jennifer at Quilt Market last fall, and had such a great time getting to know her a little bit better. Jennifer has put together a beautiful Look Book for Shimmer, available here.
I really enjoyed working with Shimmer–the name describes the fabric so well–it has a slight pearlescent sheen that is really pretty. I was happy to find that the shimmer wasn’t altered by either washing/drying the fabric or ironing/stitching through it. It has a nice drape, and my daughter was very happy with her new Easter dress!

I’m giving away a charm pack of Shimmer courtesy of Robert Kaufman. Leave a comment telling me your favorite thing about Spring and you will be entered to win the charm pack. Thanks! Check out the rest of the blog hop for more inspiration and chances to win charm packs. Jennifer will also be giving away a full fat-quarter bundle at the end of the party!
