Day 4 of Sandy Gervais Week

If you are looking for the giveaway click here.
Today's guest blogger is Aubrey from Mauby's (say that 3 times fast). Aubrey has an amazing amount of tutorials on her blog, about all different types of fabric things, several were made with Sandy's fabric. Take it away Aubrey... 

I cannot remember the first line of Sandy's that I fell in love with, but I know that each one I have seen has spoken to me as a sewist/quilter.  When I started to read Sandy's blog I fell even more in love with her work! She's a little bit goofy, definitely witty, and so talented!

And in case she is reading this, just want to take a moment and say, "HI! Sandy! Love your work!" 
Throughout 2011 I wrote one tutorial a week and several of them featured Sandy's lines, I figured a good way to go over my love affair with Sandy's fabrics is to show you all some of these projects.


To start there was my Valentine Mug Rug which is a great small project to start on and just perfect for the upcoming holiday!  Whip one up for the one you love! :)
The fabric in the mug rug is from the L'Amour line which I fell absolutely in love or amour with (insert my own dorky chuckles here)! 

You can see some more prints from the L'Amour fabric line in this apron I designed.  The pink swirls were fabulous and the little red hearts on the chocolate canvas, wow!  This remains my favorite valentine line of all time!

I have a fascination with charm packs, I just adore those piles of 5" squares, and coming up with things to do with them.  This line goes awhile back (about 5 years or so) from 2007, Celebrate Spring.  I was just about to say how much I liked this line, and stopped realizing that I love ALL of Sandy's lines.  Easter is really just around the corner, so here's another small project to put together a Candy Pouch:


Here are a few more items I put together with Celebrate Spring charm squares:



And to finish I have to tell you all how much I really loved Frolic!  I made a lot of stuff for myself from that line!  Re-usable snack bags, light weight scarves, a quick wall hanging.  So many fun things!







I still think this little wall hanging is a 10 on the super cute scale!

I thought I put together more tutorials using it, but I must have used up so much for myself that I only had enough fabric to put together one, the  Tiny Ruffle Purse:


So that's a quick overview of my obsession with Sandy Gervais fabric lines.  If you haven't read her blog you definitely check it out here: http://piecesfrommyheart-sgervais.blogspot.com/.  Happy (almost) Valentines day!  My little guy and I are going to make some honey sweetened chocolates - Yum!  Maybe we will wrap them in my L'Amour scraps - how fabulous would that be??

That's some great eye candy,huh? And the best part is that now you have more fun tutorials to use, Be sure to check out Aubrey's other tutorials on her blog and tell her that Sha sent you!

Tomorrow Quilt Jane visits to show us her Lollipop quilt that was featured on Moda Bake Shop (Yay another free pattern!).

And don't forget about the Twist Along starting soon.
