Thank you for waiting an extra day for me to post the winners.
Thanks to all who tried very hard to guess all of the fabrics.
I apologize to all of you who trashed your sewing room, have eye strain
and had children going without lunch because you were googling Sandy Gervais fabric.
Sadly no one was able to guess all 16 fabrics correctly.
Here are the answers and the year each line was designed.
God Bless America 1997 (No one was able to guess this one)
Sweet Potato Pie 2005
Hearts Aflutter 2006
Baby Talk 2000
Pheasant Run 1999
Fall Back In Time 2007
Dear Santa 2001
Gobble Gobble 2009
Happy Hollow 2002
Pieces From My Heart 1995
Bittersweet & Boo 2004
A Children's Choir 1998
The Great Outdoors 1996 (no one was able to guess this one.)
Bundle Up 2003
I used random.org for the winners.
#476 is Lois from Carrollton Texas, you won the "Guessing the Fabrics" drawing. Please email me with your preference of either my pillow and the picture or the Lovely fat quarter bundle and the picture. (I will admit that is a bit of a no-brainer.)
Many of you emailed me about listing all of my fabric lines.
I will list them in tomorrow's post along with other bits and piece of Sandy Gervais/Moda history.
Today's featured designer is Sandy Kolp of American Jane.
Sandy is known for her crayon box colors and her interesting quilts.
Her quilts are WAY above my quilting abilities.
For a recent Quilt Market School House, Moda Lissa
sent all the designers a huge box of half square triangles made
We were all to make a quilt using all or some of these triangles.
This is my quilt.
Notice all of the "fill"? (The solid brown and cream.)
I chose to use SOME of the triangles.
This is Sandy' Kolp's quilt.
When she unfolded this I just wanted to "bitch slap" her.
(And I mean that in the most kind and flattering way.)
She used all the triangles and made some more!
A bit of an overachiever – wouldn't you say?
Like I said WAY beyond my quilting skills.
Sandy has not yet joined the blog world so you can find her on Moda's blog.
The subject of today's painting is a little pig.
I have titled today's picture…
This little pig was able to balance on the top of one pincushion.
Then she pushed herself…
and became an overachiever.
Be sure to stop back tomorrow to see the painting of the day and link up with Lisa Bongean of Primitive Gatherings.
