Fabric Friday – Shimmer and Blueprint Basics

This week I’m excited to tell you about some fun new fabrics that are just arriving in the precut store!

20140530_shimmerShimmer by Jennifer Sampou – Love it!!

First up is Shimmer by Jennifer Sampou for Robert Kaufman fabrics. Thanks to social media, I learned about this line from fellow bloggers out there, even before my sales reps showed it to me! It just goes to show how word spreads quickly online. 🙂

Shimmer includes a beautiful assortment of neutrals with just a hint of sparkle. Modern geometrics are always a favorite of mine! The precut line includes a 25 piece fat quarter bundle (one of every fabric from the line), a regular size roll up (4o – 2 1/2″ strips), and precut 10″ squares. I just checked my inventory and these guys are selling out fast!

Next is Blueprint Basics by Valori Wells for FreeSpirit. I’ve always admired Valori Wells’ work (as well as her mother Jean Wells’ quilts, too). The tagline for the collection is, “a collection of classic modern designs in glorious colors for your adventurous creative pursuits.” I think that’s a great description, don’t you?

Blueprint Basics precuts include half rolls (20 – 2 1/2″ strips), ten squares (layer cakes), charm packs and fat quarter bundles. As of this writing, not all of the precuts have made it to the store warehouse quite yet, so keep an eye out for them in the next couple of days!

Our goal is to add new precuts every week! Which are your favorites?

    I’m not usually a shimmer-y type but I loved the Shimmer collection from the moment I saw it online. Thanks also to your hubby for taking such great pics of the bundles. It’s nice to be able to see them close-up.

    Shimmer has had me breathless from the first time I laid eyes on it. There is such a rich sophisticated look–I guess it is the low volume glow. Love It!

    Definitely the Jennifer Sampou line speaks to me…not so much Valori Wells. It is good to see Jennifer back designing after a lapse of a few years.
