MODA Country Fair!

I hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day weekend filled with the outdoors, BBQ, popsicles and friends! We did a little bit of all of the above and managed to get in some fabulous flea market shopping while we were at it, an overnight teaching trip to Las Vegas for me, some Cafe Rio with one of my favorite designer friends, some football and whiffle ball in the street and an impromptu play with original song lyrics and guitar playing, performed by three 6 years olds sitting up in our tree :-)!                                                             &#0160…

Swatch Guesses & a Thank you or 2

Thank you to everyone for playing! For those of you who have not been following along on this crazy giveaway whirlwind of the Pillow Talk, I know you are tired of listening to me talk about it! This is the end I promise!! I have now read through every single comment and, as is always true with these things, I am so touched and humbled by all of you! You rock! I love that so many of you remember your first Fig Tree project! Not sure I do LOL. I love that so many of you have taken swatches of our fabrics to the paint store with you to match for one home project or another. I wish I could visit each of your homes! I love that several of you are Polish, have best friends that are, or have been to Poland or a nearby Slavic country. Dzien Dobry…

Just dinner

I hope you get my title humor this afternoon, it is Friday after all! It feels like I have been giving things away all week. Come to think of it, I think I have LOL! Today's winner will receive a mini bundle of our BUTTERCUP collection. These are the best little bundles of goodies. Half the size of a traditional bundle or "tower" of fabric, these comprise of (40) fat 1/8ths… which is a fat quarter cut in half [9 x 22]… enough to make a lot of good stuff I promise! We really need to come up with a good name for these things, Lissa?

Chicken Dinner… & then some

Just chicken dinner so I wouldn't be saying Winner, Winner, Chicken, Dinner" again…. although I do get a kick out of that saying! What is it with me?

Winner, winner chicken dinner…. again

I just love saying that chicken dinner thing. I know, just go with it! Today's winner of the PillowTalk blog hop will be getting the Buttercup Jelly Roll. On Feb 10 at 5:47 am, Connie Gage said: I have to agree with a lot of your fans – all your colors together make it Fig Tree – hard to choose just one favorite color.  Love them all!  This is my first time "blogging" (I think that's what you call this) and it was the pillow that made me look further.  Would love to have that in every room in different color combos!! Beautiful, Joanna.beachbum   Connie- contact us at joanna@figtreequilts.com to receive your prize. Thanks for playing along. More prizes tomorrow.   Talk to you soon…

Just a few updates….

 Good morning Monday. Perhaps if I say it several more times, I will make it happen. Good morning Monday. Having a hard time getting it all into gear this morning… so here are a few updates that I can send your way without being completely awake. Good morning Monday. Still not working. FABULOUS BLOCK OF THE MONTH OVER AT THE FAT QUARTER SHOP   … one of the designer blocks from the center of the quilt.  … a little peak of the one of the blocks and a bit of the outer border. I just wanted to let you know about a great new project brought to you by the talented Miss Kimberly Jolly! A few months ago, I had the opportunity to design the finishing kit for the newest DESIGNER MYSTERY BLOCK OF THE MONTH for the Fat Quarter Shop. Kimberly creates one of these great…

Fig Day on the Pillow Talk Blog Hop

  Welcome to Day 6 of our MODA Pillow Talk Party! Have you been to all the stops before today? If you haven't, you should pop on over and meet some great folks. I am finding out new things about some of my old friends and meeting some new designers for the first time! • • • • • • • • • • • • • •   THE PILLOW As I'm sure you've already figured out from the previous "hops" this week, we all designed a pillow for Houston Market 2010 that was meant to depict our journey as a designer. Now, I have to admit that I usually don't like these kinds of projects because I can't come up with a good answer on the spot. But I was so pleasantly surprised when I finally had to hunker down and make this pillow… I loved it…
