I’m really excited to be today’s stop on Jennifer Sampou’s Blog Hop for her beautiful new line of fabric, Black & White. I am sharing the day with Angela Walters, so be sure to pop by her blog where she discusses the quilting for my Black & White quilt.
I have been a long time fan of Jennifer’s fabric designs and I have quite the collection of quilts using her past lines (click the links to see my other quilts): Shimmer, Color:Full, Studio Stash and now Black & White…
Designing a value-based quilt has been on my to-do list for awhile, so I jumped at the chance to design something for Black & White. A traditional Storm at Sea block seemed like to perfect way to show off the variety of shades and patterns in the fabric line.
I love the warmth the subtle taupe tones add to the fabrics and look at that amazing quilting by Angela Walters! I have also been using those dots in every single project I make. I adore them!
I recently received EQ7 and it was a ton of fun to upload the fabrics into the program and play around them with them. I don’t think I could have designed this quilt without the ability to play around with the fabrics so freely.
If you are interested in making your own Storm At Sea, the pattern is available for FREE at Robert Kaufman, or you can purchase a kit, which includes the pattern and Black & White fabrics to make the top, at Keepsake Quilting.
And now for the prizes!
