It was so fun seeing Sandy again at Market, she is such a sweetheart! And now, we are so excited to welcome Sandy Gervais to the Jolly Jabber. Sandy Gervais' latest fabric collection is Grand Finale for Moda.
Q: What was the first seed that grew into the Grand Finale collection?
A: The fabulous color that Mother Nature gives us right before the long colorless winter - like a grand finale.
Q: What are 3 Words you would choose to describe this collection?
1. Versitale prints - they are fall but do not scream fall.
2. Warm colors
3. Panel looks a little Folkloric.
Q: What single print/SKU in the collection is your favorite (can only pick one!)?
A: The little plaid because it is nice to have something other than a pretty little print and it adds texture to a quilt.
Q: What is your dream project using this collection?
A: I would like to make Lissa Alexander's scrappy granny square quilt.
Sandy Gervais' Silly Secrets
1. What is your guilty pleasure food?
Chocolate, caramel corn, and half of a cinnamon roll every morning - the middle part of the cinnamon roll.
2. Work and life essentials aside, what is the activity you spend the most time doing?
I am not obsessed by any one activity or sport. I play a little golf, do some antiqueing and veg at our lake cabin.
3. Your biggest pet peeve?
People who litter!
6. What is the most important part of a sandwich?
The butter or the mayonaise.
7. What is your favorite fabric print ever (excluding your own)?
Oh my I have so many little treausres that I have saved over the years in my "stash". I have a whole bolt of one of Jan Patek's red and khaki twill stripes. Love it - and it is timeless.
