Black & White Blog Hop and Giveaway!

 We are excited to participate in the Black & White Blog Hop today!

http://www.jennifersampou.com/my-blog/blackwhite-blog-hop-giveaway

We had the opportunity to meet Jennifer Sampou last fall and fell in love with her new fabric collection "Black & White" by Robert Kaufman.  We were flattered when she asked if we wanted to participate in her Blog Hop promoting her new fabric line!

Jenny new right away she wanted to pair up her "Black & White" with a solid aqua (Kona: Azure).  She also wanted to show how fun it would be to take one of our current designs and change it up a bit.  


These fun contemporary blocks were made using the Quick Curve Ruler and our Metro Twist pattern!  Didn't they turn out beautiful with the "Black & White"!


Jenny started quilting it up yesterday and although she loves how it's turning out, she doesn't love all the start and stops but is excited to finish it and use it as a table runner.

Next up is what Helen designed using the "Black & White" fabrics!


She is calling this "BIG X little o".  Helen used a variety of Robert Kaufman's Kona Greens to go with the "Black & White"  and the "o's" were cut out using the Quick Curve Ruler, then appliqued on to the quilt. 


Helen is using the QCR Sidekick rulers to create these fun curved lines!  

Now for some fun Giveaway's!!  Jennifer is giving away this beautiful fq tour of her "Black & White" collection!  More information on this Giveaway can be found here!

....and we are giving away this fun Taquito Pack along with our new QCR Sidekick longarm ruler set!

Giveaway is over....Thanks!

Gorgeous Quilts ladies, and Absolutely Amazing Quilting Jenny. Loved the colour of the thread you used on Helens Quilt Jenny, how it goes from looking like the same as the chartreuse to grey. AMAZING. Anyway, I would add brights with the black and whites, but loved what you both did. :)

Andrea York said...

I think I'd choose a pink color! Those fabrics are lovely and I think most any color would go well with them!

Kris said...

Wow love these fabrics with the aqua! Since you did that already I think it might be pretty to use as soft goldy yellow or I might just like a wet concrete gray! I need to do a shades of gray challenge and this would be fun to do and of course that quilt design would be divine!

Sarah said...
