A peek…

I am still deep, deep in designing the next collection so I don't have much to share. Other than the fact that I should probably take a shower and I could use some daylight. That's probably too much information, huh?

On a more appropriate note, here is a little sneak peek of what is to come Fall 2013…

    That looks lovely! I’ve been wondering, I know you’re busy, but have you stopped doing Fresh Vintage permanently, or just taking a break?

  21. pam | 8th Mar 13

  33. Nichol Magouirk | 9th Mar 13

    Hi Joanna! The new collection looks YUMMY as always! I can’t wait to add it to my fabric stash. 😉
    On another note, I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for the wonderful tip you shared on your day of the Moda Friendship Quilt Along regarding sewing on the diagonal and only cutting the one fabric leaving the original in place instead of trimming off the whole corner! This has made my piecing so much more accurate as I’ve started sewing my blocks (and for all new quilting projects to come!). 🙂 Thank you, thank you!!!

  34. Laura G | 9th Mar 13

    And just when you thought that their could never be another collection as good as Avalon, Butterscotch and Roses, Buttercup or (insert YOUR favorite collection name here ) she does it again. It is outstanding. Well done.

  35. Jennifer Carrasco Duarte | 9th Mar 13


  36. Mary Jo | 9th Mar 13

    Yum!, Looks good enough to eat!!!

  37. Chris Y | 9th Mar 13

  41. Gerisw | 9th Mar 13

    Great oranges just for fall

  42. Helen LeBrett | 9th Mar 13

    I looks just gorgeous, and I’m so happy that you put that orange in it!

  43. elizabeth | 9th Mar 13

    these colors are so wrong for my color scheme in my home but I am so drawn to them as well as the previous lines. The softeness of the color line(s) acutally brightens my soul. (Maybe it is time to change room colors and ignore what my masculine husband thinks.)

  44. FL Quilter | 9th Mar 13

    Wow! What a beautiful mix of colors. Love it!

  45. Diana | 9th Mar 13

    Oh, so very pretty! Seems like things may have calmed down since your last post, thank goodness! Last weekend I did purchase the last charm packs & a jelly roll of Butterscotch & Roses from my mom’s local quilt dhop ( a block and a half from her house -wow) I just couldn’t resist! Happy designing days!!

  46. Bari Jo | 9th Mar 13

    Oh I really like this!!!!! Of course, I love all things Fig Tree! Very pretty!

  47. Janan | 10th Mar 13

    Oh thank you for more browns, orange and coral!
    This is a beautiful collection!

  48. Michelle | 10th Mar 13

    Absolutely gorgeous! The colors are perfect for fall. I cant wait to see more!

  49. Doreen | 10th Mar 13

    O.M.Gosh…. I LOVE this line! I’m excited to see those beautiful oranges mixed in. I’m eager to get my hands on these!

  50. Mary Kay | 10th Mar 13

    Love the collection – love the orange!

  51. SandyG | 10th Mar 13

    The brown and aqua were the first to catch my eye, then green and orange which usually are not my favorite colors, are really calling my name, and creamy whites with the green are making me dream of fall release….wait… We haven’t had Avalon, spring and summer yet….When we have to say goodbye to the days of summer, we will be so looking forward to Honey Sweet! Thank you again for this wonderful slice of life, it is Honey Sweet, with Fig Tree Fabrics.

  52. Miwako | 11th Mar 13

    Oh, it is just lovely!

  53. Jessica C | 12th Mar 13

    This looks beautiful! I cannot wait to get my hands on it.

  54. Helen LeBrett | 13th Mar 13

    Joanna, I’m going to order Avalon: what Bella white is the right match for it? Thanks so much, Helen in Healdsburg

  55. Joanna | 13th Mar 13

    Re: TypePad: [Fresh Figs] Helen LeBrett submitted a comment on A peek…

    It is almost an identical match for SNOW.

  56. Jennifer | 18th Mar 13

    Looks like it will mix great with Tapestry. Can’t wait to see larger swatch images!

  57. jody mellenthin | 21st Mar 13

    Joanna – just beautiful. I have an original pattern that I’ve been working on and would love to do a mock up using your HONEY SWEET. Do you work with independent quilters?
