Buttercup, Buttercup!

Last time I talked with you it had started shipping but now its officially here, and there and a bit more over there! Buttercup has officially hit store shelves nationwide!!

[If you are international, maybe just a few more days….]

Hope you are able to get your hands on a little bit of this Springtime goodness in the midst of this crazy cold weather and start working on something to bring a little sunshine into your life. Our sources say that the fabric is close to selling out on the wholesale side so get yours while you can.















I know we'll be sewing up a storm over here this weekend. Hope you will be too! Now…. what to make first?

Hope your weekend is full of fabric goodness!

Talk to you soon.

    OMGoodness, I love this! You Joanna and Fig Tree have turned me into a girlie girl! The colors are amazing and so not my style, but it’s just what I want, that blue is my FAVORITE! Thanks for the early morning beauty in this cold rainy NJ weather!

    This is just what I need afer two days of snowy weather. On my way to Hollyhill Quilt Shoppe today and will definitely look for this. Started making your sit-upons with Breakfast at Tiffany’s for my dining room but now have to have a set with this new line!! My favorite colors are ALL of them.

    Just what a California gal needs to brighten the cloudy, grey skies! The colors are gorgeous–I think I’ll make a tablerunner with the peach, blue and yellows.
    Thanks, Joanna!! I love your designs.

  29. Sandra Davidson | 25th Feb 11

    I love this fabric. The blue is heavenly! Hope to get some soon.

  45. Debbie Hays | 8th Mar 11

    Good morning Joanna, I adore your new line. I remember when Pomegranate Quilts was open and we carried your Cinnamon Stars line. We all loved it!! This one is just as sweet! I loved the Moda pillow blog and am hoping that they will do something like that again soon. Thank you all so much. I have a question about the i-top tool. Did you say that they were going to update that the tool in the spring? Do you know what changes that they will be making? Thanks again and many hugs, Debbie
