Sunday Stash #123 – Shimmer 2: The Sequel
Oh the glitter Gods have been good to me this month! I think I’m going to use up all my fabric karma pretty soon though because look what came in the mail. That’s just a little package from Ms. Shimmer herself, Jennifer Sampou. But wait, something doesn’t seem quite right here. I just made a whole queen-sized quilt out of Shimmer, and I certainly don’t remember that sparkle on white fabric below being part of the collection. Hmm, you saucy minx, what type of rouse is this?
Wait a minute… Oh! No you did not! Y’all, stop your lives.
This is Shimmer 2: The Sequel.
Flip me over because I am done. I can’t even deal with this right now. Here I thought I was going to be happily living with Shimmer for the rest of my life, and all of a sudden his hot younger brother shows up. Dilemna! I need a Sonic burger, onion rings, and a cherry limeade slushy to go, because binge eating is the only thing that’s gonna get me through this emotional roller coaster!
Sparkly disco balls anyone? I need it as wallpaper on my ceiling and I’ll never sleep again! Do you even realise how difficult it is to find black fabrics in fabric collections these days? Low volume has taken over the entire quilting world. It’s time to crank up the volume and keep the club rocking 24/7 at the Haus de Sparquel!
Obviously, Jennifer knew I’d been yearning for a turquoise colour way because she went and added one! She’s clearly in tune with her peeps! I’m already thinking about being totally dangerous and using that as a neutral. Yes, in my world, turquoise is a neutral! Black, turquoise, and navy … gaaaaah … silver me timbers because I’m about to fabrigasm right here on the spot!
Okay you low volume lovers. Jennifer’s got you covered as well. She must be an equal opportunity fabric enabler! I expect to see these in your projects come September when the new Shimmer 2 collection will be available at all fine fabric retailers. Start asking your LQS shop owners for it now though, so they can start making space on their shelves. Well, not like they’ll need much space because if you’re anything like me, you’ll be buying all the fabrics. Now excuse while I go and continue hyperventilating in the corner.
