Introducing…

edit: All links are good to go now. So sorry for the technical issues this morning!   So I was wondering what you would say if I were to ask you what is the most common question I get, what do you think it would it be? There are always questions about designing fabric, about my color palette, about how I learned to do what I do. Then there are questions about my studio and how I organize my fabric and how I design patterns and how I decorate. But easily the most common questions or confusion I get from my students regarding quilting is about angles. Hands down. There is something about working with bias and angles that either scares the "bijeebies" out of us or we have never really learned how to work with them in the first place. The result is that we make so…

Happy Easter!

  Just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Easter tonite. Hope and pray that your weekend was spent with friends and family and that somehow sewing or creativity was involved!   Appreciate you all so much! We made up a quick bundle today… just in case someone is dieing for a new infusion of some ALOHA GIRL…. in our shop and homepage…. We have some new and exciting things to share in the next few days… so stay tuned! Love, The Figs…

A Bit Aloha & a Bit Somerset…

As we have been working on a few projects for some yet to be released news, we have had the most fun mixing ALOHA GIRL and SOMERSET. There is something about the combo of those two collections that just make the fabric sing!!   So we mixed it up a bit in one of our all time favorites classic Fig Tree patterns, Jelly Girl. …..ALOHA JELLY GIRL             … As of this morning we might still have a couple kits left of this project. Click HERE for more info. Its just making me smile today! Joanna…

Deadlines, Fun Projects & More!

Hello Friends! I love SO many of the suggestions that you guys sent in for naming the boy turtle on the Fiona pattern but I think I am going to have to go with…. Finn! I love Fiona and Finn and I totally wish that I had thought of us naming the boy before the pattern went to print! Oh well, he will just have to be Finn to us personally even if only Fiona is named on the pattern LOL! But I do also love the idea of Baby Fergus so I am going to work up a baby turtle as soon as I can. When I do, I will give you guys some info on how to make him if you have the Fiona pattern. Thanks everyone… that was fun! I think Claudia was the first one to mention Finn and Joni mentioned Fergus and Merrilee mentioned Baby…

Introducing Fiona…

Today I just wanted to share with you some fun little pics of the new Fiona pattern… or Fionas as the case may be. Or maybe someone could come up with a good boy name to go with Fiona, for the navy turtle. Ideas anyone? Something cute and Irish and boyish :-)….             And of course my girl helpers today. They declared during the shoot that they wanted to be on the blog. So I told them to wrap themselves in Aloha Girl quilts and I would add them! &#0160…
