Ok now that I got that out back to our reguilarly scheduled program...
This month's Designer Select series is on Sandy Gervais. Her newest line Sassy is just the latest in a long line of great fabric designs. This Fat Quarter Shop exclusive kit is a great mixture of all the wonderful colors and patterns in this line.
When I first started quilting Sandy's Nautical and Nice line was brand new. The LQS here told me that I bought over half the fabric they had of this great line. I didn't buy it all at once, it was over about 6 months...I just kept going back for more.
I grew up sailing and have always loved anything nautical. I made 2 quilts with this fabric, one for my Dad and one for my Nephew Henry James. I thought it would be fun if they had matching quilts. Sadly I forgot to take a pic of the quilt for Henry, but here's a pic of the one I made for my Dad.
Then came Frolic. I made 2 quilts from that line. These are still just quilt tops, but I plan on quilting them soon. They are for my husbands Dad and Step-Mom. I wanted to make them matching quilts to use in their basement living room.
And you know how Craizee I am for table runners. I found an adorable pattern on Moda Bake Shop and made a table runner using Awesome. It's called Petits Fours Table Runner.
As for Sassy, I plan on making a Twister Quilt for the Twist Along starting next week.
And I really want to make this adorable runner.
And as if that isn't enough she has 2 more line coming out this year...
Merry Melody, due out in July and Phenomenal Fall, due out in June.
This week I have a bunch of guest bloggers who are going to show you their projects made with Sandy's fabrics.
And what would Designer Select week be without a GIVEAWAY?!?
