Introducing: TRELLIS

So today I thought I would start introducing the new patterns to you. First I want to mention that we will be doing PRE ORDER KITS for several of these patterns, as we always do with any new release. But first we will introduce all the info here so you all can make your decisions at home! TRELLIS The pattern has been done with a soft white background, a soft grey background and also shown at the end with charcoal cross weave. They all sing so beautifully in my opinion. In this first photo, you can also see the table runner version on the lefthand side- made with just one charm pack.                       INFORMATION ABOUT THE PATTERN Name: TRELLIS Size: 74″ x 74. or 15″ x 85″ if you would like to make the table runner instead…

…A Little More Recap

I am literally on my way out the door this morning… If you want to follow along, you can do that on INSTAGRAM as I hope to over gram this adventure from beginning to end.  But for now I just have a few Market shots to share, mostly because I promised that I would. I was completely in love with the outfits that MODA made for their booth displays… and of course that chair fabric.            And of course I am completely obsessed with all things Jen…         And it was so lovely to meet a few of our newest designers and hang out with the ones that were new to MODA but that I already knew and loved….       That Chelsi is a crack up!   Oh and of course my newest obsession…. Erin's new…

Recaps and Answers and New Stuff Oh My…

So this is how it goes around here… We prep for Market. We make ourselves a bit nuts in the process [read all about that from my darling husband Eric in a previous post :-)]. We don't sleep. We eat nonsense. We wonder if there is any way that it is all going to get done. But it does get done. Usually. More or less. Well… the lawn might be brown and the and my hair most definitely needs a bit of color, but more or less is about right. I guess it all depends on what the less is… We go to Market and always enjoy being with our industry friends and colleagues, talking to customers and presenting our newest products. Always. We usually have much more fun than we expect.   Thank goodness that most of live by the rule of what happens at Market…

Market Prep: Fig Tree in Real Life

Good morning MODA friends!   [this is Mr. Fig here taking over for a bit… or for as long as I have before "the designer" figures out what is happening. She is pretty quick that one so not sure if you will see me again after today]. Normally one of these Market prep blog posts would start off with pretty pictures of the upcoming collection… like this. In this case FARMHOUSE….   … it ships in August/September 2015 Or pretty shots of the new upcoming patterns… like this…      … all patterns will be done in the next 10 days or so! It would be all about the pretty around here. Well, that's all very nice to show you guys all the pretty stuff but have you ever wondered what its really like around here the weeks leading up to Market… ITS…

We can't wait!   WELCOME TO FIG DAY ON THE MODA LOVE BLOG TOUR!   If this is your first time visiting here, welcome!

For each QUILT MARKET [Houston each October and various Spring locations in May] the designers who attend Market get together…

Market: Spring Pittsburgh ’14

As you might remember from last time around, and the time before that and the time before that….. that it usually takes me about a week to dig myself out, brush myself off and rejoin the world after Market! LOL! Well… it seems that this time was no different. You might have already seen all the Market shots you could possibly handle… but here go mine. Up today is an overload of pictures of our Market booth. Hope you are ready! No words. Just pics.  Hope you enjoy the Fig Tree 🙂   … my shoes never last long :-).                      &#0160…

Market Recap… for real

Of course Market was a lovely adventure as always. Eric and I both hate it and love it every single time. Since we do it two times a year and we have been doing this for more than ten years… well, we've done a lot of them and still always love it and hate it?! It is a crazy amount of work but it is the best time to see friends and colleagues, to showcase our new products and to generally participate in this wonderful industry of ours. Regardless of how much we might whine and complain, we wouldn't have it any other way. This time around due to a completely crazy schedule over here in Fig Tree land and a huge retail show the weekend before Market, we opted to showcase our goodies in the MODA DESIGNER SHOWCASE area instead of having our own…

Market Recap… AT LAST

… Well not quite. In an effort to enjoy Halloween with the munchkins, chronicle a bit of the fall loveliness around me and generally trying to clean up my studio and sewing room, I have completely fallen behind in showing you what is up, what is new and what was at Market! So tomorrow I will show you a bit more about our booth at Market and our new stuff but today I thought I would just show a tiny bit of eye candy from the show itself. As I am sure you already know from following along on show recaps, it is really hard for the designers to get out of their booth to see much of the show. Close to impossible hard. One morning before all the hustle and bustle, I took a quick stroll just to take in all of the color. Here is a tiny bit…
