Sunday Stash #215 – Black & White 2 Giveaway

Y’all know I love me some Jennifer Sampou! Shimmer: Say no more. Right? Well, she’s recently released Black & White 2, a twenty-six piece collection of subtlety and drama. Jennifer really understands tonal value in her fabrics, which as a designer myself, is extremely appreciated. It’s this value of light and dark situated across the range that brings an intoxicating depth of possibilities. Jennifer sent some of this new collection my way, and I want to share it will all of you! Consider this her gift to me to you.

There will be two prize pools, with each winner scoring seven fat quarters. The first winner will be randomly drawn from those that link up to Sunday Stash this week. You don’t even have to comment, I’ll just close my eyes and point at the screen. The second prize pool is for all my Honey Pot Bee members. (Holla!) So if you’ve made a block as part of The Honey Pot Bee just leave a comment and let me know. If you haven’t joined in yet, now’s definitely a good week to start!

I will be asking you to send me picture proof of your block, so no cheating! Not that I would expect anyone around here to do that, but I really just want to see the beautiful things y’all are creating. Speaking of creating, as I’m typing this, I’m sitting here getting all inspired by these last four dark pieces. I want to collage them with something really bold and bright, like a Kona Wasabi splattered throughout. Okay, help!, someone needs to win these quick smart otherwise I’m gonna have another work-in-progress on my hands!

As always, this giveaway is open internationally, and winners will be announced at next week’s Sunday Stash. Good luck! Finally, a giant sparkly hug and two air kisses to Jennifer for her constant support and sponsoring this giveaway. MMMWAH!
