Lollipop by Sandy Gervais

"Lollipop lollipop, Oh lolli lolli lolli, Lollipop lollipop..."  do I have the song stuck in your head yet...?  Well it sure is stuck in mine now! ;-) ... Well today we are presenting.. you guessed it... Lollipop by Sandy Gervais!  It's such a cute and upbeat line and we even have an adorable Quilt Kit and several patterns for it that Sandy is going to talk about later on... Well let's just get to it... but first let's step into our kids' shoes because Sandy put hers on this morning! ;-)... here she is the adorable Sandy Gervais...


The first thing I like to do when I design a line of fabric is come up with a name. I love how the word Lollipop rolls off your tongue. And who doesn't like a Lollipop. So Lollipop it is.

I tried to make this line as much fun as an all day lollipop. The prints consist of polka dots, flowers, fish, lollipops, and plaids, all in colors you would find in an all day lollipop.

I had tons of fun designing the panel. Mr. Monkey and his friends are on their way to a birthday party. They have cut through the park to grab a lollipop from the Lollipop tree. They ask if the fish are biting. Mr. Alligator says they are. Maybe they will stop back after the party to do a little fishing and play a game of kick ball.

This line works great for a kid’s line but can easily convert to an everyday line as well. I designed eight quilts using this line of fabric. Four of them are geared towards kid and four of them are everyday.

Pattern #502 Oopsie Daisy uses the Charm Pack™. This quilt features dimensional flowers, covered buttons and a little bit of appliqué. For your convenience, Fat Quarter Shop is kitting this pattern. You may purchase the kit right here. In fact you can purchase all of the patterns, precuts and yardage right here at Fat Quarter Shop.

That's all for now, I am off to continue designing my next line of fabric, which will debut at Spring Market. Yes SPRING Market and I started even before Fall Market! My world turns very fast. Enjoy Lollipop. Email me your finished projects. I love to see your creativity.

 From my heart,

I absolutely love everything I've seen from Sandy Gervais! And I have to say, the panel with the monkeys makes me smile every time I see it. This line totally makes me feel like a kid again!

Oopsie Daisy is a darling wall hanging. I love this line of fabrics. Sandy Gervais always has such cute stuff. But now that I read the lyrics to the song, it's going to be stuck in my head all night!
