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

Fullpillow

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! I enjoyed thinking about it, making it and sharing about it. Go figure!


Closeuppillow

I started with a plain hemstitched linen napkin that I bought on one of my wonderful little adventures in Paris in the last couple of years. Those trips have been such a sanctuary of inspiration for me, I thought it appropriate to use as the base of the pillow. Next, I found a a bunch of cream based prints from a variety of my collections. This formed the center line. All of our groups have some kind of a cream or ivory colorway so I thought putting them front and center would be the way to go.


Buttons

Next I started making buttons. Dozens and dozens of buttons. Many of them didn't make it onto the pillow because there wasn't any more room. To be honest, we went a bit crazy with the buttons. To do this without having our hand fall off, you should use this amazing little tool that we were given at Market. Oh, what we would have done to have it BEFORE Market! I have to tell you that I LOVE THIS TOOL. It doesn't hurt that I love to make buttons, but I digress.

Itop

If you come back tomorrow we are going to do a tutorial and give one away in a GIVEAWAY! Also by tomorrow, we will have a limited amount of them in stock for sale.


Selvedge

Last but not least, I added a bit of my favorite butterscotchy colors for a scrappy binding and sewed on a tiny piece of my selvedge as a little decoration. Because as I shared with folks at Market, even after 20+ collections, it never gets old to see my name on that little selvedge. There is just something so satisfying about seeing your name rolled out on thousands and thousands of yards of fabric. I know, it sounds a bit silly to say. But its true.


Mainpillow
 

FYI, we have had so many requests for this little guy since Market that we are working on a pattern of pillows to release with the next fabric collection in Spring 2011. We had grand plans to try to finish it by this blog hop, but it was not meant to be yet.

THE QUESTIONS

We like to give Lissa a lot of grief for these various contests, tours and projects that she dreams up for us to be involved in but really, we all love her and we love all of her ideas…. well, okay, most of her ideas LOL! But she really is a wonderful marketing director and we all REALLY APPRECIATE everything she does for us and to us :-). Love you Lissa!

So here are the questions that Lissa thought might be interesting for us all to answer for your reading entertainment…. so here goes:

What is a little known fact about yourself?

My family emigrated from Poland when I was 7, leaving in the middle of the night without telling any of our family in case someone might try to stop us. The story gets crazier from there but I probably shouldn't write about it here in such a public place. You know that whole, I could tell you but then I would have to kill you line…. well, Poland was communist at the time we "left". Let's just leave it at that. 

On a less life threatening note :-), I have a masters in theology but no degrees in art!

I know, my life has taken some circuitous paths. I was an art minor in college because my parents didn't really think that you could make a living doing "art". So I took as many art classes as I could without it becoming my "major" which was political science. I then went to seminary and got a master's degree in cross cultural theology and urban studies: basically working on domestic urban issues. My boyfriend at the time, my husband now, and I were living in East Los Angeles working with gangs and troubled youth. It was what I thought I was going to do for the rest of my life. Its a VERY LONG story on how I arrived at fabric designer, but there you go.

p.s.  In case you're totally confused from things I have said in the past, I have more recently gone to school for surface & textile design but its not what I officially studied in college.

 
How do you relax?

I sit in the left corner of my large overstuffed couch… and I really do mean "in" in the corner because I shove myself up against the arm of the couch and pile all my favorite pillows [of which there are a lot] on the right hand side of me. I make myself my favorite cup of tea, either iced or hot depending on what season we're talking about. I take a pile of my favorite magazines or even mail that needs to be sorted or kids stuff that needs to be organized…. it doesn't really matter what it is so much, just that I am organizing something. And lastly, I turn on whatever old crime show marathon we have "tivoed" in the past month and have it on in the background. My favorites? Are you sure you want to know the cheesy shows I watch when sitting on that left side of the couch? Well, NCIS, Bones or Closer for the more up to date ones. Remington Steele, for the oldies but goodies.

I really am a hermit.

 
What do you sleep in – PJ’s or Nightgown?

Well, I usually sleep in my favorite oversized teeshirt and leggings. I used to wear pajamas but I don't like it when the pajama pants creep up at night- that was probably TMI, as my kids say, too much information, but I guess that's the price you pay for the theme Pillow Talk!

Recently I put on an old favorite night gown that apparently I wore a lot when I was pregnant with my youngest. As I walked to the bathroom to brush my teeth, my 9 year old son looked at me from across the hallway and asked, "Mom, are you pregnant? I haven't seen you wear that since you were having a baby last time!." Needless to say, that nightgown has now been bid farewell and I am back to my favorite Giants t-shirt and some old comfortable leggings. 
 

What kind of pillow do you like, Hard or soft, foam or feather? And why?

I have an old feather, squishy pillow that I can "mush" up into a little ball of fluff. I make new pillowcases for it all the time. Better yet, I take it with me everywhere I travel and my husband mocks me mercilessly and calls me an old lady. That's okay though, I know where he sleeps!
 

When you were young did you sleep with a stuffed animal? If so what?

I don't remember having anything. But my husband still has the teddy bear he grew up with and it sits in the corner of our room. I've tried to pack it away many times since it doesn't really "go" with our decor but he won't have any of it. I hope none of his friends are reading this post.
 

Do you sew in bed? Read? Watch TV? eat?

Normally by the time I crawl into bed it is way too late to do much of anything and we have instituted a "no bringing electronics into bed" rule at our house so no twittering in bed for me! I love to read a good mystery if I can keep my eyes open. I do currently have a stack of 17 books by my bedside. Just in case. I love books. Used to read many more of them B.K and B.F. [before kids and before Fig Tree]. I think I will do nothing but read when I retire!
 
How many nights have you or your spouse spent on the couch?

My husband has spent MANY nights on the couch. Me, my fair share. But its not as bad as it sounds. Sleeping on the couch is what happens at our house when: there is a sick toddler, a boy who is having nightmares, a sick spouse whose illness you don't want to catch, a nursing infant who needs to be in a room that is not with his/her mom or otherwise they will wake up said mother every 33 1/2 minutes and want to nurse, a 5 year old girl who still wants to cuddle in the middle of the night and a parent who has to get some sleep before work the next day… and on and on and on. But don't worry about us, our couch is very soft, very comfortable and whoever sleeps out there gets to use the Whimsy Fresh quilts that are all backed in the MODA snuggle fabric. Its all good, I promise.
 
Nighttime toddy?
Wasn't even sure what a toddy was when Camille emailed to ask the same question!! So I had to look it up. Since I didn't even know what it was, I guess I have never had one.

However, my hub and I have recently joined a quarterly wine club in Sonoma Valley near where we live and are learning to appreciate red wine [I've never been much of a fan until now]. It is slowly becoming a tradition at our house to have a glass of red wine with dinner whenever the 5 of us are sitting down to a real meal. Eating a "real meal" with the whole family is easily one of my favorite parts of the day. To this end, I am trying to cook more at home.  You, my dear friends, can keep me accountable to actually doing that this year. It is one of my goals! 

Early to bed or all-nighter?

Most definitely a late-nighter kind of gal. That is my preferred state of being, actually! I was always that way ever since my first all-nighter my freshman year in college. I always studied at the last minute- good under pressure, up to the deadline. Now I design and write up to the last deadline too! As a stay-at-home mom who decided to run a business based largely from home, my late nights became a necessity as they were the only time that the house was quite and I could work. A lot of my emails and uploads happen late at night and often people email me back the next day asking what on earth I was doing up at 2:50 am.! Now that our business is a full time job for several people, the rest of the folks work primarily during "normal hours". I work mostly when everyone else is gone or asleep. That still makes nights my best work time. I wonder what will happen when my kids get to be teenagers and stay up with me? Uh-oh, maybe then I will have to become a morning person!?
 
Who would you most like to have a pillow fight with?

My kids, all 3 of them, are awesome pillow fighters. In fact one of my favorite Saturday morning activities is an impromptu family pillow fight. The result is usually that I get hurt [I bruise really, really easily], my oldest gets in some kind of trouble for getting too rough and the other two hide under the covers and create all kinds of covert operations. My husband, who can usually win hands down, just gives the rest of us a chance to think we are gaining on him. And then, he holds all 4 of us down with one arm. He's kind of a big guy. If you asked him his side, he would say that we don't play fair. I would say that we just use what we have available to us. Its an on going discussion at our house LOL!

 GIVEAWAY…. GIVEAWAY… GIVEAWAY

    Gee, Joanna, asking us to pick a favorite fabric color from your collection is like asking us to pick a favorite child! Just can’t do it. It just depends on the mood I’m in at that moment in time!! Love the pillow!

  22. Sandy | 6th Feb 11

    Your Yellows / Champagne are always so soft and delicious, but I also like your salmon colorway since it really adds the requisite kick to the line. Always soft and dreamy. I can’t wait for your Strawberry fields line. It is a must buy!!

  26. Hannah | 6th Feb 11

    My favorite Fig color is Pond Blue. So soothing and coordinates with so many of my projects! A close second would be Coral Rose!

  27. Staci | 6th Feb 11

    Love, Love, LOVE the bright pink in Fresh Cottons! Sea Glass is just a teeny baby step behind that. Right now I’m eagerly awaiting the Buttercup yardage to arrive in the stores. . .

  28. Michele | 6th Feb 11

    Loved your story, thanks for sharing. Picking a color is like picking my favorite collection, near to impossible. The combinations of your colors are amazing. I would have to pick the reddish color because it pops against all the neutral tones.

  29. Michele | 6th Feb 11

    I recently signed up to follow you on Google reader and signed up for you newsletter.

  30. corinne | 6th Feb 11

  31. Sharon | 6th Feb 11

    I love the green and soft blue/acqua in your fabrics — those just call out to me.

  49. Cathy M | 6th Feb 11

    How can anyone pick just one color? At first I thought it was the yellow…then blue…then green…Yikes-I like them all

  50. Molly | 6th Feb 11

    To pick one color is so tough. I love your aqua blue shades and your greens. Love that fabulous pillow. I, too, love to make buttons. I must get one of those tools!

  56. Mary Meats | 6th Feb 11

  60. Alicia | 6th Feb 11

    I am a follower!

  61. edyB | 6th Feb 11

    I love the soft blue, too. It’s yummy but so are all the colors ~ difficult to choose.

    I am a follower via Twitter.

  64. Cathi | 6th Feb 11

    Impossible to pick a favourite colour — but if pressed, I’d say the peachy/apricot colours. They are SO delicious!

  65. Christelle | 6th Feb 11

    I felt in love with the grey in “straberry field” … can’t wait to put a hand on it!

  66. Cathi | 6th Feb 11

    I’ve been a subscriber to your blog for quite a while through Reader.

  69. Irene | 6th Feb 11

    Wow – this is HARD as I love all of the colors in your lines. I always catch my breath when I see one of your new lines as the colors are always so warm and soft, but also very welcoming at the same time. You just want to dive in and buy them all (and I always do LOL!) but I guess I’d have to say aqua…..and blues, and purples, and the soft grays, and the apricots (sigh).

  70. Jocelyn | 6th Feb 11

    Oh my how can I pick just one color?? I love the pinks, and creams, and ……. Thanks for such a fabulous giveaway 🙂

  71. Karen | 6th Feb 11

    OK, taking a shot at naming the collections. I am bit of a Fig Tree collector. Going for the creams in the middle.
    I see Breakfast at Tiffany’s for sure. Mill House Inn I’m pretty sure. Fig and Plum maybe.

  72. lenedragbaek@mail.dk | 6th Feb 11

    I’m a green girl, always been!!

  73. Christelle | 6th Feb 11

    I will follow you by email!

  74. Rachel Brown | 6th Feb 11

    My favorite color is the green, especially in the breakfast at tiffany’s. My daughter looks beautiful in greens and it’s one of my favorite books.

  75. Jocelyn | 6th Feb 11

    And I am a follower 🙂

  76. Diane R. | 6th Feb 11

    When I think of Fig Tree fabrics, butterscotch comes to mind. I guess that’s kind of your signature color and I love it. I just finished a quilt using your Folklorique line and it is truly one of my very favorite quilts.

  77. Clara Jung | 6th Feb 11

    I love the blue’s and the all the other colors as well! Thank you for the giveaway!

  82. Sue | 6th Feb 11

    I have to pick my favorite Fig Tree color? Oh my. I love them all. Well, there’s the soft greens, and those buttery yellows are to die for, and I do love the pinks. Do I really have to make a decision? All I know is I love your fabric and buy a LOT of it. And, I can’t wait for the new Strawberry Fields line to come out.

  83. SuzK | 6th Feb 11

    Green is my favorite color and I love the greens you use.

  84. Pat | 6th Feb 11

    I’m all for yellow, the new buttercup line looks wonderful

  85. Angie | 6th Feb 11

    I think I love that yummy yellow! Thanks for your inspiration!

  86. DeAnna Dodson | 6th Feb 11

    I love that precious, soft blue from “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.” It’s yummy!

  87. Connie F | 6th Feb 11

    I enjoyed reading your story. And oh my gosh I had forgotten about Remington Steel, I loved that show.
    But now for my favorite color…that is a hard one. I like them all. They all just work so well together. I can’t pick just one.
    Connie F

  88. SheilaS | 6th Feb 11

    I really think al the colors are pretty but I think the yellow or butterscotch would be my fav-they are happy colors!

  89. Kim S | 6th Feb 11

    I love the soft blue green that reminds me of the beach!!

  90. Nena | 6th Feb 11

    Your Coral Rose is my favorite. I also love your pillow and your Sit Upon. Thanks for sharing those photos. It was fun to read more about your personal side on the Pillow Talk.

  91. Irene | 6th Feb 11

    I officially “signed-up” about six months ago and check your blog each morning when I’m having my coffee. By the way, I love the new colors you have at the top of your blog and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the French music that is on your playlist. I crank up the sound and bob around to it – tis so very happy and cheerful – I just wish I knew what the heck the guy is singing about!

  92. Nena | 6th Feb 11

    I just signed up to be an e-mail follower. Thanks.

  93. Jen | 6th Feb 11

    I love the pillow! Super cute! My favorite color is Fig Color is red. I think red makes the other colors really pop! Thanks Moda!

  94. Tiffany | 6th Feb 11

    I follow you via Google Reader.

  95. Tiffany | 6th Feb 11

    I just love the way all your colors work together.

  96. Me and My Stitches | 6th Feb 11

    All of the colors are wonderful, but I think it is the buttercream that pulls it all together. Love them all!

  97. Sharon S | 6th Feb 11

    If I have to pick a favorite it would be Butterscotch. It reminds me of the butterscotch my great grandma always had on her coffe table!

  98. Cathy M | 6th Feb 11

    I follow you on my blog reader but now signed up to get my updates by email. I’m excited to get my updates that way.

  99. Mary | 6th Feb 11

    I love the creams and butterscotch. All of your stuff is so pretty – it’s hard to pick.

  100. Kay | 6th Feb 11

    My favorite Fig Tree color is yellow, as in the Buttercup or Dandelion Girl lines. But I love the way all your colors play together.

  101. Mary | 6th Feb 11

    I have signed up to get your posts via email. I can’t wait till the Strawberry line comes out.

    So hard to choose just one but I think I like the soft pinks and soft aquas the best.

  103. jgquilter41@msn.com | 6th Feb 11

    Though I usually like dark primitive colors. I am drawn to your buttercream color. Thanks for the giveaway.

  104. Lisa England | 6th Feb 11

    Right now my favorite is Walnut because browns go with so many different colors. I like your pillow and the story behind it and your fabrics are lovely. Thanks for the chance to win.

  105. Nancy | 6th Feb 11

    I follow you on goggle reader and your newsletter – thanks to you and Moda for the giveaway!!

  106. Jennifer | 6th Feb 11

    Okay, I’m fairly new to quilting, so I’m not familiar with your previous lines, so I’ll take a wild stab! I think you used Patisserie, Fresh Cottons, Mill House Inn, and Breakfast at Tiffanys.

  107. Heather | 6th Feb 11

    I love, love, love the pale aqua greeny blue that is in some of the collections and the pale lime green would be a close second!

  108. Janet | 6th Feb 11

    LOVE that pillow and have several napkins that will now become pillows, that turned out so well!

    I love the yellows, corals and browns in your collections.

    And I am a fan, but could no way name all your collections – I can, however, guarantee that I have fabric in my stash from all of them!

    Thanks for the opportunity!

  109. Janet | 6th Feb 11

    And you’ve been in my reader for some time now. Thanks again!

  110. DianeY | 6th Feb 11

    I really enjoyed reading your background-fascinating! My favorite fig tree color is your orange-just bright enough without being too garish.

  111. DianeY | 6th Feb 11

    I follow your blog thru Google

  112. julia | 6th Feb 11

    the red! all types of them! {or the cream because it’s so versatile!}

  113. Kim G | 6th Feb 11

    I love the pinkish/coral color in the Fresh Cottons line!! Very cute pillow, just not familiar enough with all your fabric lines to name them!! That I-TOP tool looks pretty neat!

  114. Laura Beech | 6th Feb 11

    I love the brown and blues(any shade of it really) and then when you combine those two-awesome!

  115. Heather | 6th Feb 11

    Oh and I think one of the sets of buttons is Mill House Inn.

  116. julia | 6th Feb 11

    i’m a long-time follower (i read it with ‘brief’) 😉

  117. Sharon | 6th Feb 11

    All your color choices seem to blend so nice. I think I lean toward the soft red/pink – they seem to add that special punch. Thanks for the pillow.

    Sharon

  118. Erica K | 6th Feb 11

    I was going to pick the pinks (I love pink), but I scrolled up to your pillow and you know…I love the creams, with the little hints of other colors on them. 🙂

  119. Debbie St.Germain | 6th Feb 11

    I am drawn to dark reds, but I do love all the shades in your cinnamon stars.

    Debbie

  120. Erica K | 6th Feb 11

    I just signed up for the emails. That’ll be handy! 🙂

  121. Jenn | 6th Feb 11

    I honestly don’t think I could pick a favorite color…I simply love the entire look!!!

  122. Ladybug | 6th Feb 11

    The best color is of course the green.

  123. Logan | 6th Feb 11

    I llloooovvvvveeeee fig tree cream! I want to use it in everything!!!!

  124. Mary | 6th Feb 11

    I’m probably not even close, but here’s my guess at the bottom row of buttons: Gypsy Rose, Mill House Inn, Dandelion Girls, Cinnamon Stars, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Fresh Cottons, Buttercup, Fig and Plum, Whimsey, Urban Indigo, Allspice Tapestry, Mill House Inn.

  125. Dandelion Quilts | 6th Feb 11

    Cute pillow! I love the fig tree red. LOVE it…my quilt on my bed is a log cabin block made from reds and creams in your Folkorique collection. I love it.

  126. annie | 6th Feb 11

    I am a pink or soft aqua kind of girl…am I disqualified for liking more than ONE???? I loved reading your bio. I also got a degree in Religious Studies and I am now a quilt teacher. What does that say about us?????

  127. MaeveM | 6th Feb 11

    I love the peach tones the best!

  128. Maxine | 6th Feb 11

    I think some of the fabric lines you used for the buttons are, Folklorique,Cinnamon Stars, Fig & Plum, Gypsy Rose,Breakfast at Tiffanys, Whimsy, Allspice..Not really sure can’t see the buttons that close….I am now a follower

  132. Laurie | 6th Feb 11

    I love all of your colors and how they melt together so warmly…if I had to pick one it would be butterscotch. Thanks for the chance to win :0 and have a grand day – Laurie

  133. Diane R. | 6th Feb 11

    The buttons are a little difficult to see, but I would guess on the top row Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Folklorique, Buttercup, Strawberry Fields, Gypsy Rose, and Patisserie.

  134. Jen | 6th Feb 11

  140. Sue | 6th Feb 11

    Too difficult to pick one color…I love all of them! But if I must pick one…it’d be blue!

  141. Anita | 6th Feb 11

    I used a buttercup yellow print that I think is about 4 years old in a quilt for my daughter. I think it is such a sweet color. Cute pillow!

  148. Stephanie | 6th Feb 11

    There is something about the butterscotch and coral colors that make me want to keep touching them. I used to LOVE watching Remington Steel and Rockford Files before that. Maybe that’s even before your time! I just love your pillow–I have a thing for buttons and what a cool tool.

  149. Katherine G | 6th Feb 11

    My favorite color is the sky blue; I think it just goes so well with almost anything.

  150. Chris | 6th Feb 11

    My favorite color in your collections is always the blues-blues, aquas, etc.

  151. Christelle | 6th Feb 11

    I didn’t reconize all of them but I would say Patsserie, fig&Plum,Fresh Cotton,?, folkolrique, breakfast at Tiffany’s,Fresh cotton, fig&plum, allspice,?,Butter cream, straberry field, harvest floral…I’m coming back tomorow for the answer!
    Funny that you have so many french song in your ipod…

    i love the use of soft reds in your collections…and i love how they all work together

  155. Robyn of Robyns Nest | 6th Feb 11

  156. Nancy | 6th Feb 11

    Choose just one??? I really love the apricot/peach colorways with the creams followed closely by the pond blue with the creams. But by far the most comments I have received was of a quilt I made for my daughter-in-law made from the Gypsy Rose lilac colorway with the creams!!!

  157. Katherine G | 6th Feb 11

  184. MonicaP | 6th Feb 11

    I want to make a guess at the cream colors. Although, I recognize them, it wasn’t easy (to put it lightly)going through my stash trying to remember. I see Fig and Plum, Fresh Cottons, Patisserie,Urban Indigo, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Folklorique, Cornucopia, Buttercream and Figs and Allspice Tapestry.

  185. taylorkate | 6th Feb 11

    The cream colour is my favourite because it goes with every colour in every range. Seeing them on the pillow brings it home how many lovely cream fabrics you’ve designed.

  189. Carol | 6th Feb 11

    I love the corally pink and the green and the butterscotch– it all depends on my mood!

  190. Heather | 6th Feb 11

  217. Debbie Bennett | 6th Feb 11

    Thanks for sharing such a beautiful pillow. The new button maker looks like fun. I recently did a quilt with over 30 covered buttons and I had to do it the old fashioned way. Ouch. It took a long time. I love all of your fabrics, but I think my favorite is the apricot. It reminds me of a sunny summer day.

  218. Patty | 6th Feb 11

    My guess for the pillow colors are Breakfast at Tiffanys, Fig & Plum, Fresh Cotton, Patisserie, and Folklorquie.

  219. Jeanine | 6th Feb 11

    It’s so hard to choose… I suppose the blue, no, the corals – maybe both!!!

  220. Jill | 6th Feb 11

    Wonderful Pillow…………..great way to remember all your fabric lines! My favorite colors are blue and I have to add cream too.
    Jill

  221. Karen | 6th Feb 11

  229. Phyllis | 6th Feb 11

    I love the blues and creams, but all the colors are great, so it’s hard to pick just one.

  230. Andrea | 6th Feb 11

    I am always drawn to your pink and peach tone fabrics, but they’re all glorious!

    I signed up for blog updates via email. Wonderful –a second chance to win your beautiful fabrics.

  241. Mirjam | 6th Feb 11

    I love all the creams. So versatile. But peach and blue are very close behind. Right now I’m eagerly waiting for Buttercup (I esp. love the 20155-13 design in all 4 colours) to become available to recreate some of your beautiful patterns!

  242. Jennifer W | 6th Feb 11

    I really like the stone. All the colors go so nicely together though. I’m “meeting” so many designers with the pillow talk.

  243. Alaina | 6th Feb 11

    I’m following you with my google account now 🙂

  244. Phyllis | 6th Feb 11

  251. carla | 6th Feb 11

    Thanks to you and Moda for the giveaways.

  252. CaraQuilts | 6th Feb 11

    I think you were one of the first blogs I followed way back when!

  256. Gayle | 6th Feb 11

    Your buttercream is such a warm creamy color – the perfect neutral!

  257. Susan | 6th Feb 11

    My favorite Fig color is your green.
    I’ve gotta know who makes that button maker! I love covered buttons and I agree that it is painful to make very many at a time.
    Thanks for the fun blog hop.

  258. Emma | 6th Feb 11

    I just registered to be a follower!

  259. Lorraine | 6th Feb 11

    My favorite is yellow.

    Thanks for posting the give-away.

  260. Krisgray | 6th Feb 11

    It’s the dark browns – they catch my eye EVERY time!

  261. S. | 6th Feb 11

    Here’s the colour that I love best… 20141 12 in the Breakfast at Tiffany’s line. Lookslike a butterscotch with white large dots. I haven’t seen it in the quilt shops nearby so I don’t know the exact name, but I did get the number! BLues are also delicious.

  262. Alaina | 6th Feb 11

    Here’s my guess for the buttons. I’m not positive, but I’d say you used Folklorique, Cinnamon Stars, Fig and Plum, Gypsy Rose, Buttercup, Breakfast at Tiffanys, Whimsy, Allspice, and Strawberry Fields. But thats just some crazy guessing on most buttons!

  263. Krisgray | 6th Feb 11

    I am a happy follower.

    This is hard because so many of the lights show up in different lines! I’m betting all the lines are in there, except maybe Yuletide Blessing.
    But I’m thinking I see Urban Indigo, Gypsy Rose, Dandelion Girl, Mill House Inn, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Allspice Tapestry, Cornucopia, Fresh Cotton, Folklorique, Patisserie, Fig and Plum, Cinnamon Stars, Buttercup, Whimsy, Buttercream and Figs, I think a light from day in the country ( a fav), so I’m guessing Fig Tree Foundations is there too!

  265. VickiT | 6th Feb 11

    I think my favorite Fig Tree solid color has to be Olive. But really I love all the colors you have worked with so far – the strawberry red, the Indigo. It really depends on my mood each day which colors I’m drawn to on that particular day when discussing anything other than my favorite color which is purple. LOL

  266. Stephani | 6th Feb 11

    I love the entire Whimsy line. I have a jelly roll of it just calling my name at the moment.

    I am also a follower of your blog.

  267. carla | 6th Feb 11

    I signed up to follow your posts with email, I know I cannot name the fabric lines on your pillow. I love the design of the pillow. Your buttons bring back memories of sewing my clothes in the early 70’s and covering buttons to match the dresses. Thanks for the memories.

  268. Judy J | 6th Feb 11

    I love the aqua blue the most, but the other colors are not far behind. Love the pillow!

  269. VickiT | 6th Feb 11

    Unfortunately I cannot follow you via my RSS feed as you don’t seem to have the “Atom” one available which is what I use since it’s integrated into my IE browser. I am subscribed via email subscription however so hopefully that counts.

  270. Celine | 6th Feb 11

    One colour only really. That’s really hard. I would say cream/chocolate then maybe.
    Lovely pillow I love the effect from all these buttons

  271. Lyn | 6th Feb 11

    I love the soft yellow(s)!

  272. Lyn | 6th Feb 11

  288. Cheryl | 6th Feb 11

    Its really hard to decide, but I would have to say the butterscotchs. I really enjoyed reading your answers to Lissa’s questions…you made me laugh right out loud a couple times.

  289. Olivia Drake | 6th Feb 11

    I love fig tree colors and fabric. Primrose!!! And then the buttercup!!!

  290. Laura K | 6th Feb 11

    I love the grass greens in A Day in the Country but I have to tell you I am sooooo excited about Strawberry Fields! I love fruit motifs especially grapes and strawberries so this is just right up my alley. Thank you.

  291. Koye Hendrix | 6th Feb 11

    I think my favorit color would be the Sea Glass. The peach color would be my next choice. Koye

    Oh I just love the butterscotch color. I have lots of the collections in pre cuts and yards and yards of the creams and backgrounds too! They go with everything!

  299. Jessy. | 6th Feb 11

    Hi Joanna! I like all the colors of your collection, because I love the pastel colors, but I can say that pink is my favorite color!
    Hugs …
    Jessy.

  300. CJ | 6th Feb 11

    I already follow your blog!

  301. Mary Ann | 6th Feb 11

    And I follow you in google reader tto. Wish I could take a flyer at all those collections but for along time I didn’t really see fabric as a collection and bought bits and pieces of lots of lines…think it was the pre cuts and the first FQ stacks that changed that for me.

  302. Joan | 6th Feb 11

    Sea glass is my favorite. Fresh Figs. Love your blog.

  303. Olivia Drake | 6th Feb 11

  308. Charlsey | 6th Feb 11

    I like the peach colors in your line. They are not too orange.

  309. Modalissa | 6th Feb 11

    Hey joanna
    Thanks for the shout out. I told a fellow designer, my theory is like jennifer Lopez in the wedding planner. ” those that don’t wed, plan” thanks for being such a trooper.

  317. ellen | 6th Feb 11

    My guess is that you used fabric from all of your collection.

  318. Wendy | 6th Feb 11

    Cream and the blue are my favorites. Thanks!

  319. del | 6th Feb 11

    I love the peach and the browns in your fabric lines! Thank you for sharing!

  320. Kathy | 6th Feb 11

    I love the shades of green the best because they are fresh and bright while being soft at the same time- that’s what makes all the shades of fig tree fabric unique.

  321. Julie T. | 6th Feb 11

    Cute buttons! My favorite Fig Tree color? I love the muted colors in your fabric lines. Just one? Can’t do. I do like Breakfast at Tiffany’s, though. Thanks.

  322. Lori G. | 6th Feb 11

    Cute pillow! I’ve seen the I-top in Scrapbook stores but didn’t look at it. Can’t wait to learn about making covered buttons with it! I love the blues in Urban Indigo and the blue-green shade in Strawberry Fields. I loved reading your story & wish I could read on & on about your family coming here. Those stories just fascinate me!

  323. Lori G. | 6th Feb 11

    Just put your blog in my Google Reader to follow!

  324. Loris Mills | 6th Feb 11

    Very cute pillow and great post! I agree…how can anyone pick just one color…however, if put to the test, I love the yellows that you have in your line. Warm, buttery and delish. Thank you for the chance to win some 🙂

  325. Loris Mills | 6th Feb 11

    And I’m back 🙂
    I’ve been a follower for quite awhile now. Love your posts and the pictures. I enjoyed meeting you at PIQF this past year. Thanks for another chance to win Fig Tree fabric!

  326. Shawn | 6th Feb 11

    Oh my Joanna, you are making us work for this lol. I too love all your colors and lines and can’t wait for the new one… I’m pretty sure the label on your pillow is from Fresh Cottons, but I know that doesn’t count, oh well. I’ve been working on my Fresh Cottons quilt today, take a peek if you have a chance, I love it!!

  327. Sarah | 6th Feb 11

    Favorite color? I like your Strawberry Fields collection so much that, at this point, I’d have to say “red”.

  328. Kathy | 6th Feb 11

    I really like the coral pinks. They are gorgeous. My favorite line is Buttercup. Love it!

  329. Kathy | 6th Feb 11

  333. Sarah | 6th Feb 11

    …entering from Google Reader… Red – Strawberry Fields (Forever!!)
    Joanna, thanks so much for cluing me in to Pillow Talk – I’ve been so busy raising children for years, and now that they are all out of the house, I can actually begin to think of sewing some serious projects – it’s great to see all the wonderful fabric that’s available, and, I have to say, that Moda has some stunning lines. Your blog is very inspirational. Thanks for taking the time to write.

  334. bruinbr | 6th Feb 11

    My favorite fig color is definitely the blue! Always to dreamy!

  335. Jan | 6th Feb 11

    Pond blue, definitely!

  336. Suzanne G | 6th Feb 11

    I love your browns….wait, no, the blues/aqua…no, wait, the creams…Do I have to choose?

    buttercream and soft yellows – peace and warmth
    Thanks for the “pillow talk” self-interview as enjoyed it very much.

  342. Cindy | 6th Feb 11

    I love all shades of browns. Who doesn’t love any Fig Tree line? You’re such a talent.

  343. Sarah Rothe | 6th Feb 11

    I love your blue. It’s a clear blue, not aqua-ish or grey-ish. But really it was a stretch to choose a favourite. They are all lovely spring colours!

  344. Grandma Rita | 6th Feb 11

    They are all my favorite colors. I love your work, it brings so much joy to my quilting experience.

  345. Kate | 6th Feb 11

    I love the creams – so delicious!

  346. Robyn Brown | 6th Feb 11

    My favorite line is patisserie.

  347. SarahB | 6th Feb 11

    I love them all!!! Sooooo romantic.. *sigh* but if I have to list one, it’s the green because it reminds me of spring!

  348. Kate | 6th Feb 11

    Your browns are what first drew me to your fabric. Thanks for the giveaway.

  358. Miriam Fleshman | 6th Feb 11

    My favorite Fig color has to be Coral Rose.

  359. Gwen Windham | 6th Feb 11

    I’d love to be one of the lucky winners!!!! I’m keeping my fingers crossed. It’s *REALLY* hard to choose just one color — I think what makes your fabrics so outstsnding is the color comibanations you choose…. but if I have to choose just one, then… I love the beautiful, soft blue in the Breakfast at Tiffany’s line. Blue has always been my favorite color, and I really love that shade… so lovely…

  360. Cindi P | 6th Feb 11

    Pond Blue…unless it’s the creams…or wait the sefoam green….or maybe the butterscotch…buttercream…I give up…all of them 🙂

    Hugs, Sharon

  374. Sharon Vrooman | 6th Feb 11

    I was fortunate to win a FQ bundle of Butter Cup – I’m not an orange fan, but I just love the Apricotty color in this line – both the sweet pea and the dot. I’m using it in the BlockaPalooza quilt along and have had so many lovely compliments on this fabric.

  375. Doe | 6th Feb 11

    Just signed up to follow your blog and thanks for another chance to win.

  376. Teresa p | 6th Feb 11

    Plum is my favorite Fig Tree color, by far. But I do love all of them. Wow, I tried to do challenge number three (fabric lines in the buttons, etc). You’ve got a good mix in there – super hard.

    Lovely giveaway, Joanna.

  377. Megan | 6th Feb 11

    The blue and brown from Breakfast @ Tiffany’s are both gorgeous! I could make quilts from those two colorways for a year and probably still not be tired of them.

  378. Megan | 6th Feb 11

    I stalk your blog via Google Reader – I don’t miss a post!

  379. Dorian | 6th Feb 11

    Gosh, ONE favorite color?? That’s hard…I love green…your soft, lovely springy greens…but I love your light blues too, and those peaches are awesome 🙂
    Thanks for such a fun blog hop! I loved ‘getting to know you’.

    I just subscribed to you on my Google home page!

  384. Jayme | 6th Feb 11

    Well, my eyes aren’t very good, but I do see some Fresh Cotton, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Buttercream Figs, Folklorique, AllSpice Tapestry, and Urban Idigo. I’m sure I’m missing a few since I can’t really see the patterns well. I’m seriously blind when it comes to computer screens. Anyway, LOVE all the colors and all the fabrics! Thanks!

  385. Nancy Gilliam | 6th Feb 11

    Love the blue and the coral, well really all of them, but can’t get along withou the blue and coral.

  386. Patti | 6th Feb 11

    I would have to say I love the greens….. But truthfully they all coordinate so nice. How can you choose!! Patti in PEI

  387. Ladybug | 6th Feb 11

    Alright this is my best guess on the light cream middle row in no particular order: Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Patisserie, Fresh Cottons, Fig and Plum, Allspice Tapestry, Folklorique, Buttercream and Figs, fig tree foundations, Cornucopia, Urban Indigo, GypsyRose, Buttercup, and Strawberry Fields.

  388. Nancy | 6th Feb 11

  418. Jeanne H | 6th Feb 11

    There is no way I can pick just one. I LOVE them all. I first fell in love with “Cinnamon Stars” with all the buttery creams.

  419. Jeanne Langston | 6th Feb 11

    I’m sorry to say I just found you through this Moda Pillow Hop, but I’m so glad I did!! I liked reading your story-now I know more about you. Your pillow is just cute as it can be.

  420. Rhonda Laws | 6th Feb 11

  442. Carol | 6th Feb 11

    I am taking a shot at the colors used in the pillow Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Patisserie, Fresh Cottons, Fig and Plum, Allspice Tapestry, Folklorique, Buttercream and Figs, fig tree foundations, Cornucopia, Urban Indigo, GypsyRose, Buttercup, and Strawberry Fields.

  443. Melly | 6th Feb 11

    My favorite of the Fig Tree colors (and omg it’s so hard to pick just one!) is the Sea Glass from the Fresh Cottons line. I’m making a double wedding ring with a couple of my Fresh Cottons jelly rolls and I just love seeing that color.

  444. Carolyn | 6th Feb 11

    Here’s my guess for the creams…..urban indigo,whimsy,breakfast at tiffany,gypsy rose.

  445. Karen M | 6th Feb 11

    I love the browns they seem to blend beautifully with the other colors you use in your collections and work well for quilts and childrens clothing. Thank you, I have enjoyed the pillow talk and have visited every designer so far.

  446. Melly | 6th Feb 11

    I was *sure* was already following you but it looks like I just somehow remember to stop in regularly. Anyway, me (and my love of Sea Glass) are totally following you now. 🙂

  447. Tammy R | 6th Feb 11

    I love the blues and the reds. They are so soft but yet not boring or blah. Just beautiful!

  448. Amy | 6th Feb 11

    My favorite color is the beautiful shade of blue you use!!! Thanks for the nice giveaway!

  449. Celeste | 6th Feb 11

    My favorite color is the light green in Fresh Cottons.

  450. Becky P | 6th Feb 11

    Peach, peach, PEACH! : )

  457. Jenny | 6th Feb 11

    Ok, here we go: Cream Row (I am probably crazy, since I seem to almost have hit all your collections… ;-)):
    Whimsy, Buttercup, Figs & Plum, Patisserie, Folklorique, Breakfast @ Tiffany, Fresh Cottons, Allspice Tapestry, Butter-cream & figs, Urban Indigo, Cornucopia. Wheiw! Took a few minutes to track’em all down and I am still not real sure about the Patisserie…
    Thanks for a really fun puzzle! (Made the Super Bowl a bit quicker… ;-))

  458. Sue | 6th Feb 11

    I hate trying to pick a favorite when fabric is involved, it’s practically impossible! I’ll just go with sea glass, though it’s actually the way the colors are combined that make them so great.

  459. Sue | 6th Feb 11

    ….and I follow your blog through Google Reader.

  460. Barb Colvin | 6th Feb 11

    Well, it’s a toss up between the soft buttery yellows and the butterscotchy oranges.

  461. Kate | 6th Feb 11

    I love the pink/peach/apricot colors you use… But really, the combination of them all is part of what makes your fabric lines so lovely 🙂

  462. Kate | 6th Feb 11

    I follow your blog. Love it!

  463. Nancy | 6th Feb 11

    My guess for the cream row is: Buttercream & Figs, Folklorique, Allspice Tapestry, Urban Indigo, Fig & Plum, Patisserie, Fresh Cottons, Breakfast At Tiffany`s, & Buttercup.

  464. Dawn | 6th Feb 11

    You had a line years ago that had the most beautiful purple and green in it. I would have to say it was that purple, with green a close second!

  465. Sandy | 6th Feb 11

    It’s too hard to pick a color, I love the browns and buttery colors. I love the pillow, I’m going to try to make one.

  466. Melanie Moraites | 6th Feb 11

    Love your pillow! It’s really hard to pick a favorite fabric because one is as pretty as the other. I am crazy about your newest line coming out shortly, Buttercup. It’s so soft and creamy looking and I just love the yellows. Thanks for the giveaway!

  467. Celeste | 6th Feb 11

  472. Judy S | 6th Feb 11

    I love the BEACH color! But they are all very pretty.

  473. WendyMT | 6th Feb 11

  479. Lou | 6th Feb 11

    Coral. It’s so unusual and different!

  480. Sandy Narayan | 6th Feb 11

  482. Kristy | 6th Feb 11

  488. JennyG | 6th Feb 11

    I am always partial to the reds/corals you use and absolutely love the strawberry color in strawberry fields.

  493. Nancy Knight | 6th Feb 11

    I love the florals – especially the cream, custard and green backgrounds. I just finished a log cabin quilt out of the breakfast at Tiffany collection as a spring tablecloth. I’d love to win some more fabric to use my leftovers with!
    nancy

  494. Mary | 6th Feb 11

    First favorite is the yellow shades, then the sea glass aquaish color. But, let’s face it, I kind of like them all and your browns work in so many ways!

  495. Sarah | 6th Feb 11

    The blues always draw me in, but the butter creams and yellows remind me of butter mints. I also like the clay colors.

  504. Ethel Snow | 6th Feb 11

    My favourite colour used to be turqoise but I have this urge to check out and turn my face and eyes towards the warm yellows lately. Perhaps its the darkness of Winter and the yearning for Spring.Ethel Snow

  505. nerida | 6th Feb 11

    Butter-cream is my favorite color in your fabrics with Pumpkin in second place.

  512. Carmen | 6th Feb 11

    I love that lovely Pond blue, but peaches and apricots have always been favorites. (Peach was the color for my wedding almost 30 years ago!)

  513. Sandy G | 6th Feb 11

    I couldn’t wait for it to be your day Joanna, then you had to ask! What is your favorite Fig Tree Color?
    That was too tough of a question. I like (love) blues,browns and creams,(Daisy Chain)and how your browns change, however you Joanna have brought to my attention so many colors I might have ignored. Red for example, your reds are always gorgeous (gotta make Petite Fours) and…well I really have quite a Fig Tree pattern collection started as well. Now I need to paint my rooms creamy, so I can have all your Fig Tree colors, get a nice flow going! I cannot wait to add your new fabrics to my stash, but please don’t let my husband know I said that! Really he just says “so what did they send you now”?!! Good luck ladies with the drawing! Thanks Moda, and Lissa for the Pillow Talk idea! It has been fun. I am just so glad it is your day Joanna!

Here it goes for the top row of buttons: Fig and Plum, Breakfast At Tiffanys, Fresh Cottons, Folklorique, Mill House Inn, Patisserie, Strawberry Fields, Gypsy Rose,Breakfast at Tiffanys, Strawberry Fields, Allspice Tapestry, and Fig and Plum.

  525. Sandy G | 6th Feb 11

    Okay, I’ll try not to be so long. I signed up to receive your Blog updates through email, now I won’t be checking your blog several times a day to see if you posted! You are in my favorites right there with both my daughter in-laws Blogs. I check all three several times a day to see if there are new pictures of the grandkids,themselves or Fig Tree fabric! In that order. I think that will cut down on your hits!

  535. Laurel | 6th Feb 11

    I love the grass and strawberry! I really like how you use lots of neutrals with a splash of colors on your pillow. Covered buttons are a favorite of mine so I will check back tomorrow to see the cool new button maker!

  536. Nancy | 6th Feb 11

    Yes, I can pick a favorite color … it’s the coral! I adore it with all your other colors … makes it POP! I love it!

  537. Nancy | 6th Feb 11

    Oh, I forgot … I already follow your blog and love it! It is so bright and cheerful that it makes my day much better than just coffee!

    I would love to tell you the fabric lines in the pillow, but my eyes are too old and I can’t enlarge the picture enough!

  538. Connie Martin | 6th Feb 11

    I love the Strawberry reds, but my favorite is Breakfast at Tiffany’s. It’s really hard to pick a favorite! I must have one of those button makers. I love your pillow with all of the buttons. The recent trend was yo-yo’s, now I can see everyone making buttons with that little tool! Thanks for the give-away.

  539. Janelle J | 6th Feb 11

    It’s so hard to pick a favorite color, but I’ll have to go with green. It can go with all seasons so it’s probably the most versatile for me.

  540. Janelle J | 6th Feb 11

    I am a follower in the reader. Always looking for the next peek of something new!

  541. Martha | 6th Feb 11

  542. Joanne | 6th Feb 11

    I do subscribe to your blog through e-mail…and enjoy it very much…can’t wait to the tutorial tomorrow…that button covering tool looks great!

    Thanks.
    Connie

  545. sue | 6th Feb 11

    You do make it hard to pick one colour, so I would have to say I like Fig Tree colours as they are all beautiful no matter what you create

  546. Darlene B | 6th Feb 11

    You are in my automatic reader so I will be able to keep up with all your posts! I enjoyed the answers to your questions…what an interesting history!

  548. Julianne | 6th Feb 11

    I like the green, but I must say they all work together so nicely in this line!

  549. Chris | 6th Feb 11

    It’s too hard to pick just one color! But If I have to – I usually go with the peachy color – it goes with tons of other colors!

  550. Julianne | 6th Feb 11

    You are in my google reader. THANKS for the give away!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  551. Annie | 6th Feb 11

    I really like all your beautiful fabric. I haven’t seen your fabric line before so can’t tell which one is my favorite. Whatever I see on your blog, I love. I love anything with roses.

  552. Brooke | 6th Feb 11

    I love how the blues and greens pop out from the warm butter, reds, browns, and peaches. Your fabrics are nearly eddible! If I were to chooses one color it would be plum. Love your blog!

  565. Wendy Forbes | 6th Feb 11

    I seem to be drawn to all your fabrics, but I have to say I liked the patissiere range the most and all that coming from someone who does not look past pretty pastels. Wendy

  570. all8garden | 6th Feb 11

    Blue, always blue. Although if you were asking, your Strawberry Fields line is quite a draw. Reminds me of summer in my first hometown and the Strawberry festival every June; sitting with my grandparents, watching the parade wind it’s way down main street. Thanks for the memory flash in the depth of winter.

  571. Kara | 6th Feb 11

    My favorite color you are using is sea glass.

  572. Kara | 6th Feb 11

    I signed up yesterday to follow by email. Somehow I never made it to your blog, I always stopped and shopped along the way when I googled Fig Tree. I discovered your fabrics in a moda candy bar and it was love at first sight.

    fig and plum

  576. Dianne | 6th Feb 11

    My favorite figgy line to date is Patisserie. It is the line that started it for me. I started quilting again after a 7 year hiatus with Patisserie, and I’ve loved it since! I have a feeling that Strawberry Fields will be a close second…

  577. Dianne | 6th Feb 11

    I am a follower…I read you through Google Reader.

  578. Sandy G | 6th Feb 11

    Yikes, I am not organized enough to grab any of the stash and answer any or all of the buttons or creams on your pillow, not that I have all of them, would like to have all of them though. Is that covetous or what?
    What a great idea to use your collection on hemstitich. Thank you again Joanna. I do see some I recognize, fourth from the top left Folklorique, second row fifth from right Cornucopia, and I must admit I cannot make the picture any bigger to see. Does that qualify me for now?

  579. Janet | 6th Feb 11

    Love them all; but if I had to choose one…the corals.
    janet

  580. Karen | 6th Feb 11

    I can’t pick one favorite color..the magic is how they l look together!

  581. Julie C | 6th Feb 11

    My favorite color would have to be the warm butterscotch color I see in a lot of your collections. It’s hard to pick just one! Also, I’ve been following your blog for 6 months and just love it.

    I just became a follower. So glad I did!

  586. Molly | 6th Feb 11

    I really love the creamy, buttery yellow that you use (though, I think part of its beauty is being grouped with so many other wonderful hues).

  587. Molly | 6th Feb 11

    I signed-up to follow your blog by email, also.

  588. Dawn | 6th Feb 11

    Oh wow such interesting pillow topics Joanne, thanks for sharing….

    Husg dawn x

  589. Ceil | 6th Feb 11

    Love your fabric!! That button maker would be great for me as I put covered buttons on a lot of things. I do find them to be fun and easy to do.
    I would have to say that my favorite color of all time is apricot nectar. Robbins’ egg is a close second.

  590. Dawn | 6th Feb 11

    Yep follow you in my google reader and my blog and love visiting often for lots of yummy inspiration… and just love your fabrics.

  591. Marsha | 6th Feb 11

    What an interesting life you’ve lead to date! Can’t wait for the pillow patterns to come out! I really like the butterscotch, peachy, pumpkiny, warm autumn colors. They comfort me.

  592. Thearica Burroughs | 6th Feb 11

    Thank you for such a lovely giveaway!

    Your pillow is really cool! Love those covered buttons! I need one of those gadgets!

    My favorite color used for the fabrics is for certain the peaches and blues! Love em!

  593. Marsha | 6th Feb 11

    Yes, Joanna, I follow your blog, get the newsletter, etc. You are one of a handfull of designers that I just HAVE to keep up with!

  595. Shirley | 6th Feb 11

    What really makes your colors so great is your special blending of some really soft shades of creams, greens, blues, etc. and I love them all. But if I had to choose, I’m really drawn to the apricot/peachy shades. They are usually difficult to find in other lines and yours are fabulous!

  596. Madonna Kay Sweeney | 6th Feb 11

    My favorite Fig Tree color, at least right now, is the red. I’m looking forward to Strawberry Fields.

  597. Ariane | 6th Feb 11

    Oh I love the blues and the creams. But I love all the colors. Gorgeous!!

  598. Linda | 6th Feb 11

    I follow on Goggle—-your apricot is my favorite color–love the pillow…

  599. Mindy | 6th Feb 11

    I’m going to have to say the creams. Honestly, I can’t decide, but I can’t leave the question unanswered and ruin my chances of winning such a lovely prize.

  600. Ariane | 6th Feb 11

    I follow in Google Reader. Love your blog.

  601. Nancy in IN | 6th Feb 11

    Thanks

  602. Bethany | 6th Feb 11

    I love all the fabrics, but I think what stands out to me is the soft pinks and aquas!

  603. Bethany | 6th Feb 11

    I am following you on twitter!

  604. JennyG | 6th Feb 11

    Okay here’s my guess for the cream squares in the middle of the pillow

    left to right
    whimsy, fig & plum, patisserie, buttercup, folklorique, breakfast at tiffanys, fresh cottons, folklorique, allspice tapestry, foklorique, buttercream and figs, patisserie, and cornucopia.

    Hopefully, I’m right 🙂 because i spent a little too much time on this

  605. janita | 6th Feb 11

    my favorite color????? it depends on which line because there is always something that makes your heart pitter patter a little faster and before you know it there is an OOOH coming out of your mouth!just keep it all coming 🙂 Thank you for a chance to win some sweet treasures. Janita

  606. Theresa | 6th Feb 11

    My favorites are blues and greens but those jelly rolls and charm packs sure look good mixing in all those colors!

  607. janita | 6th Feb 11

    I’m a follower through e mail:)

  608. Amanda S | 6th Feb 11

    Favorite color–Pond Blue and Plum from Mill House Inn!

  609. Rebecca Smith | 6th Feb 11

    I love the purples in cornucopia the best, but all your colors are delicious!

  610. Amanda S | 6th Feb 11

    Of course I already follow you!

  611. Janie Jones | 6th Feb 11

    The creams are my favorites as they go with so many other colors.

  612. Susan S. | 6th Feb 11

    I love your browns (some are soft; some are rich) as in Fresh Cotton or Breakfast at Tiffany’s they usually have salmon/peachy pink roses on them with a beautiful sage/olivey green leaves- oh, thinking of the colors brings to mind – sunsets, flamingoes, peace roses, and the herbs I in pots each summer…
    PS making my granddaughter an Easter sundress out of one of your patterns

  613. Miwako | 6th Feb 11

    It is hard to pick one. I like all the combination of color I have seen that you used on quilts, garments, bags…. I am having fun making Polkadots + Summer pattern for my twin girls pairing Mill House Inn’s pond/scone for one and apricot/scone for the other. I love it! Thank you for fairly simple patterns and beautiful fabric designs!

  614. Ceil | 6th Feb 11

    My best guesses on the fabrics used are:
    Breakfast at Tiffany’s, that stood out along with Folklorique, Buttercream and Figs, Patissiere, Strawberry Fields, Fig and Plum, Fresh Cottons, Allspice Tapestry, Urban Indigo. I also think there is Dandelion Girl and Buttercup and possibly Cornucopia.
    It might have been easier to guess which lines you didn’t use. 🙂 I’m guessing the pillow used them all!

  615. Ann Post | 6th Feb 11

    I love all your colors but if having to pick one it would be the creams. They are to die for. Your work is beautiful and the buttons look like so much fun to make.

  616. Alda | 6th Feb 11

    My favorite color is the butterscotch, but I like them all
    Alda, Fl

  617. Ani Hudson | 6th Feb 11

    Just ONE color? Oh dear… well, I guess if I have to….coralbutterscotchaqua would have to be the one! :0) How about the ENTIRE Whimsy line? OK, just one… BUTTERSCOTCH!

  618. Carol M | 6th Feb 11

  621. Ann Post | 6th Feb 11

    I follow your blog and love seeing everything that you design.

  622. Kathleen | 6th Feb 11

    hummm just one color? The pink, maybe the soft green, oh no, it’s the beach glass blue/aqua, or maybe the red with white polka dot. Lissa says she can’t decide because she is the middle child – well I’m the youngest, and I can’t decide on just one either!! Your work is so lovely. Thanks for telling about yourself. Such a colorful past – and your designs are very colorful too!

  623. Melissa Smith | 6th Feb 11

    My favorite color depends on the project I’m working on bit coral rose is one of my favorites! I love your pillow!

  624. Kathleen | 6th Feb 11

    I do follow your blog – on my google reader! YIppee!

  625. kathy campbell | 6th Feb 11

    I have to say that the Buttercream is my favorite color way. I could almost eat it!

  626. KathyN | 6th Feb 11

    pond blue, and I love that olive green too!

  627. Dianne | 6th Feb 11

    OK, I’m going to guess on the creams in the middle:
    1. Whimsy
    2. Fig & Plum
    3. Mill House Inn
    4. Patisserie
    5. Folklorique
    6. Breakfast at Tiffany’s
    7. Fresh Cottons
    8. Fig & Plum
    9. Allspice Tapestry
    10. Folklorique
    11. Buttercream & Figs
    12. Urban Indigo
    13. Cornucopia

    Phew! Don’t know how many are right, but I gave it a go 🙂

  628. Jeanne | 6th Feb 11

  632. Beth T. | 6th Feb 11

    I love your blues, but what I especially love is the Fig Tree touch, the way you combine them with the (heretofore) unexpected peaches and tans. You make me think differently about “what goes together”.

    The soft yellows are my favorite. So very pretty!

  636. Sandy G | 6th Feb 11

    Me again, What is the quilt behind your button pillow?
    It’s soo.. pretty and that cream, it’s beautiful

  637. Marcia W. | 6th Feb 11

    It is extremely difficult to see these buttons. Here’s a stab at naming the fabric used though know am missing some. Patisserie, Mill House Inn, Dandelion Girls, Allspice Tapestry, Whimsy, Cinnamon Stars, Fig & Plum, Folklorique, Gypsy Rose, Fresh Cottons, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Urban Indigo, Buttercup, Buttercream (and Figs?). Don’t think Strawberry Fields is there though unless you’ve added it since you did this for market. I have not yet seen it in person. alternate email mlwright29 (at) hotmail (dot) com

  638. Ellen | 6th Feb 11

    I love green but your peach color is quite beautiful with the creams…reminds me summers and ice tea on a big beautiful porch with a swing….

    And OH! love your pillow.
    Ellen

  639. Kari | 6th Feb 11

    Can my favorite color be a tie between two? I really love the plums and the apricots. I’ve just finished ironing two yards of the same dot you cut the selvedge from tonight. I can’t wait to use those jumbo apricot-y dots in a quilt!

  640. Jan Blevins | 6th Feb 11

    I love the reds and pinks myself but how can I leave out the the other colors too? The warmth of your lines are very appealing!!

  641. daisy | 6th Feb 11

    Hi – I really like your buttercup yellows but the chocolate in the polka dot from Breakfast at Tiffanys is so gorgeous its almost edible.

  642. Kari | 6th Feb 11

    I subscribe to your blog in my email RSS feed. Now I won’t miss anything. 🙂

    Do you go back to Poland now to see your family? I can’t imagine what a difficult decision that would have had to been for them to leave. My husband grew up behind the Iron Curtain, so I hear many stories of what it was like.

  643. daisy | 6th Feb 11

    Hi – I really like your buttercup yellows but the chocolate in the polka dot from Breakfast at Tiffanys is so gorgeous its almost edible.

    What a fun post! Great to read all your responses to these questions. My SIL left Romania about the same way you did, but she was a young wife with a husband and child. Very fascinating to listen to her stories.

    My favorite color is green, so the grass color is just right! It is difficult to choose just one, though, as that warm purple you use is also very delicious 🙂 Thanks for the giveaway!

  656. Michelle | 6th Feb 11

    With a name like mine, it has to be green, green and more green.

    Oh but I do like the creams also…

    My favorite Fig Tree color? Oh My – how hard is this?

    It would have to be – From the Cinnamon Stars the aqua and reds! No wait – Robins Egg and Pomegranate from the AllSpice Tapestry collection. WAIT – how about the Strawberry and Pond in the Strawberry Fields collection.

    Well you get it, any of your red/blue colors 🙂

  676. Nicola | 7th Feb 11

    I love your Pond colour the most – so pleased to see it making a return in Strawberry Fields -but it really needs to be set off with lashings of cream, a little rose red, some brown and soft green…..you have such a lovely eye for colour combinations! x

  677. madebymum | 7th Feb 11

    got to be the blues.

  678. Helle | 7th Feb 11

  679. Kristin A | 7th Feb 11

    I love this pillow and linen……fun idea. I haven’t seen the little button maker before now and how fun is that. Favorite color-usually the corals and creams and well….include the browns. How do you choose? I enjoy your blog and have an icon on my iPad for quick link in.

  680. Siobhan | 7th Feb 11

    I love the salmon-y colors, but I think the butterscotch colors are my favorite! I like that they’re fresh yet vintage at the same time.

  721. Susan Gurney | 7th Feb 11

    Thank you for the opportunity!I’ve followed your work since I first met you at I believe was your first show at PIQS a few moons ago. You were pregnant and my mom, sister and I chatted with you and practically gushed over how beautiful your booth was! Have been a lover of your work ever since. As to favortie FT color…..I love the creams and have been a convert to the orangey hues due to the soft treatment you have given them. Actually, I do love them all!

  722. Bette | 7th Feb 11

    Oh yes, and I subscribe to your blog on Google Reader.

  723. Dawn | 7th Feb 11

  725. LeAnn Frobom | 7th Feb 11

    Thank you, MODA. Love the pillow, and am anxious to
    learn more about the button gadget. My favorite
    color is Pond Blue, but I also love the creams and
    peaches and the pop of reds.

  726. Linda B | 7th Feb 11

    I love the soft colors of your fabrics. The pillow is really beautiful. I can’t wait to make it.

  727. Jackie Shulsku | 7th Feb 11

  728. Monica | 7th Feb 11

    It’s tough to decide which color, but I love the peachy and yellow colors you use…I am always attracted to your fabrics….my kind of color combo’s. The button cover tool is very cool. I’ve used the little version that comes with the buttons (not a squeeze tool) and even that is so much easier than the old days!

  729. J. de la Houssaye | 7th Feb 11

    I like so many of the colors but I really enjoy all the shades of browns that go into the lines. I also like that your fabric lines coordinate with each other. I have used Patisserie, Mill Pond Inn, and Fresh Cotton. I have both Whimsey and Breakfast At Tiffany’s waiting in my sewing closet. You do make such beautiful fabric and have great ideas. I am just finishing up your pattern Vanilla and Blooms with the applique tulips. It’s very pretty.

  732. Judy Sullivan | 7th Feb 11

    My favorite F

    Cream, cream, cream!!!is my favorite Fig Tree color, but love all of them.

  733. Betty | 7th Feb 11

    I follow your blog in my list of favorites.

  734. Karen CA | 7th Feb 11

    My favorite color is green, but I also really like the creams and peaches and … well, really all of them, but green first! I love how all your fabric lines work with each other.

  735. Kathy Kelly | 7th Feb 11

    Aqua is my favorite color you use in your collections! Although I do love the creams and golden yellows and…heck I guess they are all great!

  736. Patti O'Donnell | 7th Feb 11

    I love all your colors. They are just so fresh!

    I love any thing to do with pillows and fabric- they were made for each other and I still have my pillow I had as a kid– glad it can’t tell all our secrets

  739. Joanne | 7th Feb 11

    As far as my favorite color, I would probably choose the coral red but apple green is a close follower. I absolutely cannot wait for Strawberry Fields!!!

  740. D QUINN | 7th Feb 11

    great giveaway and great story on the path your life has taken. I would LOVE the button maker!!!!

    Wow veyr cool! I’ll be back!

  743. Karen U | 7th Feb 11

    I am inexplicably drawn to blues and yellows, so that would have to be my answer. You only asked for one, but I think depending on the weather, my answer would change from blue to yellow. Thank!

  744. D. Brewer | 7th Feb 11

    It is hard to pick just one so I won’t 🙂 – I love the browns and reds.

  745. D. Brewer | 7th Feb 11

    I am already on your e-mail list and read your blog. Just found your fabrics last year, and have been a fan ever since.

  746. Cynthia | 7th Feb 11

    Picking just one color? That’s not easy! I would have to say blue, followed by green. Though there is also cream, pink, brown….

  751. Susan Dale | 7th Feb 11

    Well, truthfully, I love ALL the colors making it difficult to choose just one. I am drawn to the peachy pinky colors, tho’. And I just love the greens. Sorry………..can’t decide!!! :O)

  752. Chris | 7th Feb 11

    I have to say that Fig Tree wouldn’t be Fig Tree without the CREAM. My favorite color.

  753. Arlene | 7th Feb 11

    It really is hard to pick one color – the mix of them all together is what makes Fig Tree so Fig Tree! But I do have a particular fondness for the apricot ones 🙂

  754. Chris | 7th Feb 11

    I am subscribed in a Google Reader and I follow you on Twitter. Love my Fig Tree updates 🙂

  755. Diane Kummelman | 7th Feb 11

    Only pick one?? Has to be the cream. I have used it for many, many backgrounds.

  756. Arlene | 7th Feb 11

    Oh, and I follow your blog on my Google Reader (plus I get your emails!)

  757. Ellen | 7th Feb 11

    As classic as the Beatles…strawberry fields forever….I’m a sucker for your browns…..

  758. Karen U | 7th Feb 11

    I just signed up for your newsletter and I am “following” you in my reader. Thanks and I just want to say that your fabric belies the fact that you live in San Leandro. I live in Santa Rosa and the “feel” I got from your fabric is that you live in a small, quaint town in the midwest!

  759. Susan Dale | 7th Feb 11

    I just signed up to “follow” you and am very excited. I haven’t paid much attention to what that means so never signed up to follow anyone before. I’m now going to go round signing up to follow all my other blog favorites. Thanks!!! And thanks so much for a second chance to win!!!

  760. Elizabeth | 7th Feb 11

    I love all of your fresh, cheerful greens, but it’s hard to pick just one favorite because what I really love is the look of all of them together! They definitely have a distinctive “feel” and I fall in love with each new collection every time. Can’t wait for Strawberry Fields to come out!!

  761. Flatlander (Linda) | 7th Feb 11

    Always been a great fan of your designs and fabrics … my collection of quilts bears that out! LOVE the new “Sit Upons” pattern … what fun … especially with summer (hopefully) coming upon us soon!

  762. Ellen Sickler | 7th Feb 11

    I’m a sucker for your browns….as the song says, Strawberry Fields Forever….

  763. Anna McD | 7th Feb 11

    Hard to choose just one color….green and apricot are my two favorites

  764. Letty | 7th Feb 11

    Is the middle fabric Mill House Inn?

  766. Marcyne | 7th Feb 11

    Buttercup is my favorite, but I love how the butterscotch and the blues, browns, and greens all go together. I can hardly believe you didn’t major in art.

  767. Ellen S. | 7th Feb 11

    I’m a sucker for the browns…..a classic like the Beatles….strawberry fields forever!!

  768. Joan B | 7th Feb 11

    I have lots of Fig Tree fabric and I love all the colors, but if I had to choose a couple, I’d choose the coral and cream colors. Really love the aqua and browns too — so hard to just pick one or two. Thanks for sharing your “pillow talk” — this is so fun and interesting. And thanks for the opportunity to win!!

  769. Jodi | 7th Feb 11

    No way I can pick just one…love them all. I’m always working on something F.T. Can’t wait for strawberry fields. Looking forward to the tutorial for the beautiful pillow!

  770. Caro | 7th Feb 11

    Love the orangish tones. Thanks for a chance to win.

  771. julie love | 7th Feb 11

    My favorite Fig Tree color is the butterscotch but then I really like your “red” and can’t wait for Strawberry Fields . . . I just got a Buttercup jelly roll and plan to use that at a retreat this month! I’m having to restrain myself from starting that project now instead of waiting!

  772. julie love | 7th Feb 11

    I follow your blog on my Google Reader!

  773. Grace | 7th Feb 11

    That pillow with the covered buttons is stunning! And, I love the nifty tool you used to make the covered buttons. Sweet!

  774. Julie Dueck | 7th Feb 11

    My favorite fig tree color is the Mauve from Fig and Plum… and if I can have a second… Stone from Fig and Plum. I love your little pillow!

  775. tammy | 7th Feb 11

    green green green. i also love the peach, yellow, cream, blue, and pinks

  776. Marianna Bergkamp | 7th Feb 11

    Hmm, this sure is a difficult question! I love all colors, but i guess the reds are my most favorite and saw lately that they do variate in shade! I would love to see a darker blue (dark, like the most dark brown you designed before) coming soon in one of your new collections. That is the one color I do miss in my Fig Tree collection!

  777. Joyce | 7th Feb 11

    I love the sea glass color! I love all your fabrics!

  778. Ann s | 7th Feb 11

    That wonderful carmel brown of yours, like the one on the top of the FQ bundle in the pic for the giveaway – and of course buttercream!

  779. Marianna Bergkamp | 7th Feb 11

    Ok, I am back and subscribed to a reader. I did get updates by email, but now I will see them also in my google! Can’t miss them! As I love them very much I can’t have to many!

  780. Amy DeCesare | 7th Feb 11

    That’s like asking what my favorite flavor of ice cream is – I love so many kinds, but really appreciate a GREAT vanilla. So I’m going to say my fave Figtree shades are in the Fig Tree Cream zone – always so rich and fresh, just like vanilla.

  781. Kathy H | 7th Feb 11

  784. Cynthia Van Landuyt | 7th Feb 11

    I just signed up for the email blog posts. Don’t want to miss out on all the great new designs and fabirc lines.

  785. Patsy | 7th Feb 11

    A favorite color? Come on, how about all of them? But since I’m forced to choose, I would say the buttercream is my favorite with the red corals and apple greens coming in second.
    Your pillow is so wonderful…….all those buttons. (I’ve always been a button lover.) Love the colors and the pattern.
    Thanks for sharing your story.

  786. Deb A | 7th Feb 11

  794. Patty d | 7th Feb 11

    Thanks for second chance to win. I follow the blog.

  795. Brenda V. | 7th Feb 11

    I think they are all beautiful, but at this moment I like the blues and yellows.

  796. Dottie | 7th Feb 11

    All of the Fig Tree fabric colors are my favorite!!! They make me happy!!!

  797. Karen | 7th Feb 11

    I always gravitate toward any peachy, melon, or apricots….they’re so girly.

  798. Ruth C | 7th Feb 11

    I like that robin’s egg blue with the polka dots! But there are some close seconds, and I love all of them when they’re combined.

  799. Karen | 7th Feb 11

    I just signed on to receive your Fresh Figs by email! Thanks, Joanna!

  800. Brittany | 7th Feb 11

    Oh I loved the soft aqua that was in your mill house collection. I always love the butterscotch, too.

  801. Jannette | 7th Feb 11

    I have loved your fabrics since the very beginning of my quilting career. One of the first fabrics I bought was the carmel fabric with the brown, green and yellow leaves and swirls from your Buttercream and Figs line – I still have a tiny piece of it saved on my wall! I love your carmel colour, but the rose red and meadow green from your Mill House line are the ones that I’m currently working with (I have the jelly roll, but I can’t make myself use it – it’s so pretty sitting in my display case!)

  802. Margaret T | 7th Feb 11

    I love all the colors! I love the way they blend together and put me in a better mood-almost transport me to a retro place I’ve never visited before. My very favorite is apricot. I can’t really find the fabric in the Louisville,Ky area. I’ve looked over the past few years in various places. I’d love to have some.

  803. Lizzie | 7th Feb 11

    wow. picking a favorite color is hard…love them all but really end up “petting” all the greens and the luscious butterscotch! thanks for the pillow talk!

  804. Lisa | 7th Feb 11

    I would have to say that I always love your yellow, soft an buttery, just the color I love to live with. The pillow is wonderful. Thanks for sharing about your life.

  805. rfr1@froniernet.net | 7th Feb 11

    I love your soft yellows and creams. They soften the project and I feel so feminine and soft…like a Mom or Grandma should.

  806. Bobbie Whittington | 7th Feb 11

    How can we pick just one? I love the blues but really anything color you do is perfect.
    I read your blog whenever I log on to the computer.

  807. Kristan @ The Stepford Wife | 7th Feb 11

    I love your apricot/peach color! That’s the best. I agree with the others, though, all the other colors go so perfectly together, it’s really hard to pick!

  808. Bonnie | 7th Feb 11

    peaches, no cream, no buttercream… I just can’t decide I love them all

  809. Kristan @ The Stepford Wife | 7th Feb 11

  812. Lizzie | 7th Feb 11

    I also follow your blog by email! I will try to identify the buttons later:) I know a lot of them…….!

  813. Darlene | 7th Feb 11

    I feel certain I’ve used every Fig Tree line that you’ve designed but fav is the butterscotch. Lighter or darker simply doesn’t matter; I love it.

    Good Morning,
    Maybe I am to early but excited to see the I-TOP tool work. I will check in tonight. Hope all have a stitch-of a day.

  817. Peg | 7th Feb 11

    I love everything you do and when I read how the colors are basically antique pictures I could see where that inspiration comes from. Favorite color – coral
    Favorite design – Mill House Inn and Patesserie.
    I love the dots, the lights, the darks. You are just a winner with every design and it was so nice to read about your family side.

  818. Denise in PA | 7th Feb 11

    Well, I love all the Fig Tree colors, but the coral roses (is that what they are called?) really are favorites. I always like to have the cream on hand too! Thanks so much for the giveaway chance!

  819. Amy | 7th Feb 11

    Oh gosh! Love all the colors, but especially the soft greens, buttercreams, peachy peaches, seaglass, delicate browns…..I could go on and on. Love them all! I want to cover my home in Fig Tree fabrics.

  820. Mary Kastner | 7th Feb 11

    I’m crazy about your buttercream colors. So, of course the new “Buttercup” is my favorite now. Just lovely! Please don’t retire for a long, long time.

  824. Beth | 7th Feb 11

    I like all the fabrics and color choices, but I think one of my favorites is from the Whimsy collection: 20120 11 Milk. That is absolutely adorable!

    I cannot decide my favorite color. Perhaps that light sky blue or maybe the softest yellow. The champagne colored tan color is a nice neutral, but not sure about that one.

  827. www.google.com/accounts/o8/id?id=AItOawnwwhYcnigYi7IABVdY8AcxwhqQIkpTBSY | 7th Feb 11

  828. Cyn | 7th Feb 11

    I love your pillow…and starting with the linen napkin idea. I have some Pattiserie and I love the soft olive green in that line. Thanks for sharing your stories.

  829. Greta V. | 7th Feb 11

    It wouldn’t be a Fig collection without the cream colors. They are Classic Fig Tree and the primary reason I buy your collections. The creams have that vintage look that I love. All of the other colors are very complimentary, though, and I love them too. But the creams just suck me in completely.

  830. Lisa | 7th Feb 11

    My favorite Fig Tree color is butterscotch ~ I love the creams, greens, blues, corals, yellows, all of them. Of course, one cannot limit it to one color to make the gorgeous Fig Tree color palette, however, butterscotch is ‘the one’ for me! Thanks Joanna, Lissa and Moda for the chance to win.

  831. kindakare@yahoo.com | 7th Feb 11

    Great use of a hankie, got me thinking, thats what I like getting inspiration. Your color choices are beautiful.

  834. maria elena blecha | 7th Feb 11

    One color??? Impossible—but ok meadow rose is soo romantic, pretty yet vibrant!!!

  835. Karen a/k/a/ The Lazy Quilter | 7th Feb 11

    As I type, I have a big pile of Gypsy Rose on my desk to make something for the Moda bakeshop contest in March 🙂 Love the green, rose and cream colors. Also have some Whimsy cut up and ready to sew. Now if only the kids would stop having so many snow and sick days!!! 🙂

  839. Natalie Francis | 7th Feb 11

    The yellow is my favorite! But, it takes the combo of all of them to make it look so perfect. Thanks for doing the giveaway!

    Good Morning,
    Just got back from a cruise with Stitchin’Heaven. Lissa from Moda, teachers were Lynne H. Sandy K. and Edyta S. had a great time and learned about pillow talk. It will be fun getting to know more of the designers. I enjoy the fabrics and patterns and not it will great to know the people behind them. So Hi Joanna from chilly ND.

  850. Koye Hendrix | 7th Feb 11

    I have had trouble with your comments deal to take my response. It wouldn’t go thru yesterday. My favorite color would be the Sea Glass and probably a second choice is peach. Koye (QuiltKorner)

  851. Dewana | 7th Feb 11

    My favorite color was plum. Got a jelly roll with it for Christmas and enjoying the planning!

  853. Lauren JH | 7th Feb 11

    It’s impossible to choose just one color when talking about FT fabrics, because it is the Fig Tree palette that makes the fabrics all work together! So, in general, let me say that while I love really bright colors, I love the FT colors because they remind me of the warmth and love and safety of my childhood! Thanks to you and Moda for this very generous giveaway!

  854. katherine schaffer | 7th Feb 11

    just gotta be the buttercream – works with everything or fabulous on it’s own!

    Love all Fig Tree colors but my favorite is the coral – it bright and fresh.

  857. ~Kathleen | 7th Feb 11

    I love Sea Glass, but for me it’s not just loving the colors, I love the names you give the colors. They are all great. What’s not to love when you hear Chantilly Cream or Robin’s Egg or Marzipan or Frangelico? What’s a frangelico???…but its got angel in it and brings up visions of Italian frescos and wonderful trips abroad. Absolutely lovely!

  858. Kim D. | 7th Feb 11

    Your pillow is adorable, what a great idea to use all the beautiful fabric you’ve designed. It’s hard to pick one favorite, I love the soft colors of the peach, yellow, brown, blue and green. Thanks for the chance to win.

  859. Cheryl Sinclair | 7th Feb 11

    I love all the colors and now you have me excited to begin work on pillows!! Thanks

  860. Tammy W. | 7th Feb 11

    My favorite Fig Tree colors are the reds you use…I always love them…any shade! Thank you for all the work you put into your blog. I love it!

  867. Cindi | 7th Feb 11

    All of the colors you come up with are wonderful – you ask which one is my favorite — lets see: pumpkin, butterscotch, butter, cream, rose, coral, apple green, chocolate, brown, sea glass, pond blue, dandelion, etc. The list goes on and on… so you ask – pick one color, how do I chose they are all my favorites. Thanks for asking. 🙂

  868. CherylL | 7th Feb 11

    I love all of your colors, patterns, and projects – how do you choose a favorite? I feel such inspiration when I see every new project you create. The pillow is awesome! I look forward to every email!

  869. Diane | 7th Feb 11

    I think I have every collection and they mix and match so well..I love the peach and pond and mauve. Do I get three entries for loving them?

  870. Cindi | 7th Feb 11

Oh I can’t chose…. this is getting really hard….. okay just pick one…. can’t do it… so all the colors you’ve designed with and will come up with in the future are my favoite…. Thanks for asking 🙂

  871. Linda Smith | 7th Feb 11

    I love the soft milk chocolate color. I bought some a few weeks ago for a cute apron pattern. Your soft color palette is very appealing – keep up your great design work.

  882. Cheryl | 7th Feb 11

    What an AWESOME pillow (cannot wait for the pattern)and I really enjoyed reading your pillow talk. Yellows have got to be my favorites, they make me smile and think of sunny days (BTW we’ve had snow, ice, and freezing rain here, I have over 3 ft of snow in my back yard nowand that’s after the rain has compacted most of it!)
    Thanks for the opportunity to win your wonderful fabric.

  887. Jane | 7th Feb 11

    the Buttercream and Cornucopia collections are my favorites. Took my first class while living in Coeur d’Alene, ID 31 years ago and have been quilting off and on since then. I love the piecing aspect of the process and truly enjoy seeing how all the fabrics fit together in the end product. All the soft, “welcome home” colors just make me smile.

    Your creamy butter yellows are my most favorite color in your fabrics. I could just lay in a tub of it!!
    Love all of your fabrics and patterns!!

  896. Sharon Griffith | 7th Feb 11

    It’s difficult to pick a favotite color, they are all so beautiful. If I had to narrow it down, I would pick the peachy colors as they make me feel warm, and I would also pick the yellows as they are like sunshine to me. I live in Montana where the sun doesn’t shine as often as I would like, so the yellows warm me up on those all too often gloomy days.
    Sharon

  897. Robin Young | 7th Feb 11

    I love love love that beautiful green !!!!

  898. Charlene | 7th Feb 11

  900. Lisa | 7th Feb 11

    I Love all your colors, but especially the apricot. What a great pillow.

  901. Stephani in TX | 7th Feb 11

    Hi Joanna. Read your blog and was so interested. I remember your great first trip to Paris and how you shared the wonder of it. I was always interested in your references to Polish heritage but did not realize you had lived there. My best friend for a long time, long ago, was also born in Poland and emigrated here during her school days. AFTER she had been taught Russian history and Russian language in her school in Poland.

    I love your fabrics and have many of the lines. My fabric and scraps are stored in plastic boxes by color, with the exception of my Fig Tree. It has its own box and it weighs a ton. I have several quilts made of Fig Tree fabrics and their softness of color, their luster, makes them my favorites.

  902. marcella | 7th Feb 11

    Love the buttons! Oh, that I could name all the fabric lines 🙂 Let me just say that it’s a hard thing to even choose fabric colors in your lines. I do love reds though, and am waiting for those Strawberry Fields to arrive!

  903. Bonny Smelser | 7th Feb 11

    Oooooo what a gorgeous pillow!!!! I read every word of your blog, even love the idea of what you sleep in (pj problem same).. :). I love your green colorway and creams, browns, actually all of them… I am a subscriber to Email to be sure I get all your updates and info.
    I would love to win one of your give a ways!
    Best regards
    Bonny

  904. Maja | 7th Feb 11

    Yay for pillow talk, I really appreciate learning about you! It’s fun to relate on more levels than just fabric (The better under pressure, the bruising, the sort of pillow you sleep with…)
    I went to Poland before the wall came down, visiting Auschwitz. As German nationals we were not especially welcome in public but the individual hosts were very warm and treated us royally with what little they had. I wonder how much of Poland you remember.

    favorite color: blue. I don’t think that’s a very fair question! (Favorite color: your fabric lines!)

    I think you write well and I would think you’d have had some college classes in that direction.

  905. Maja | 7th Feb 11

    I am a follower via email. I like pretty and inspiring updates in my inbin!

  906. Susan | 7th Feb 11

    I really like the soft yellow, I think it is called scone? At least that is what I called it when I had to search for more fabric to finish the Butterscotch Tart quilt I am making. The yellow is soft and soothing and goes with the gold walls in my livingroom. Since we live in Oregon, we need some warm colors to chase away the rain! Keep creating the fabric lines, I love them!

  907. Mary F | 7th Feb 11

    I love your beautiful blues. Thanks for the great giveaway and for insights into your life! Such fun. Love your pillow and the great buttons!

  908. Bonny Smelser | 7th Feb 11

    Iam now an offical email follower of your blog. Really enjoy your posts!

  912. Jeanne | 7th Feb 11

    Pick one favorite color?!? When your lines come out I am usually drawn to all of them. I probably gravitate most to the soft peaches though.

  913. Barbara Stein | 7th Feb 11

    Hard to choose one color but it would be Coral Rose!

  914. Donna barwish | 7th Feb 11

    I love this pillow, my favorite so far. I follow you by email and would so love to win this bundle. Fig tree fabrics Rock!

  915. Louise | 7th Feb 11

    I love all your colors but I guess I’m most drawn to the peaches. They’re all so soft and feminine and they just make you fell good.

  916. Lynda | 7th Feb 11

    love the softness of all your colors – yellow being the best I think.

  917. Barbara Hudson | 7th Feb 11

    My favorite Fig Tree colors are all of them except Brown. I recently finished piecing a Sweet Sugar Swirls and love it. Would love to hear more about your trips to Paris, my favorite city. Love the pillow.

  918. Toni Selman | 7th Feb 11

    My favorite color of your line is the cream…I have a bolt of it in the studio…no matter what, it goes with all your lines and is a great background fabric

  919. Joyce | 7th Feb 11

    I definately recognize some Fig and Plum on that pillow….my personal fav 🙂

  920. Joan | 7th Feb 11

    Love the ivorys, greens, and yellows…actually all of the palatte! They blend so beautifully without any one screaming “look at me”!

  921. Susan Bailey | 7th Feb 11

    I really like green, but I actually like all of your fabric colors, since they are such soft colors and are actually very relaxing themselves. I do follow you, so I guess that counts, but I don’t think I can actually name all of your fabric lines off the top of my head. I do love Patissiere.

  922. Lynda | 7th Feb 11

    definitely signed up to follow with Google reader!

  923. judy | 7th Feb 11

    I have used may of your lines in quilts and love each and everyone of them. I think my favorite color is the gold or yellow in the collections. Of course the red is right there beside it and I love the softness of the line it is so feminine in a great way. I havebeen reading you blog for a year or so and love to see what you come up with.

  924. Danielle | 7th Feb 11

    butterscotch would be my favorite color – but love them all!

  925. KathyJ | 7th Feb 11

    My favorite is the blue…with apricot a close second.

  926. LeAnn H. | 7th Feb 11

    My my, your favorite pattern…I think I have made something out of every one since I started quilting except Breakfast as it went out of stock before I got to it. I think my all time favorite has to be the upcoming Strawberry Fields. I have marked on my calendar the month it’s supposed to be released and I’m drooling over every image I can find!!!

  927. LeAnn H. | 7th Feb 11

  929. Lisa | 7th Feb 11

    Mmmm, that soft blue is a weak spot for me. Yum yum. Your family sounds alot like mine too, my son usually getting way too carried away and rough and my husband does exactly what yours does too, he lets us think we can beat him, but really, we’re no match for him, the big brute,LOL:-)

  930. Brenda | 7th Feb 11

    I love the apricot – painted my entrance door by matching the color from a fabric swatch. Enjoyed your sharing.

  931. Abby Latimer | 7th Feb 11

    Love the pillow! My favorite color is the hot pink/melon color. I love how it makes all the colors pop!

  932. Deb | 7th Feb 11

    I’m like a lot of people, apparently, it’s hard to pick a color I love them all but, if forced, it would be peach, no blue, no brown . . .

  933. Deb | 7th Feb 11

  944. Cheryl Hart | 7th Feb 11

  947. Lea Kagel | 7th Feb 11

    Hi Joanna! I’ve always been a pastel lover; pinks, bluess, yellows, but never browns, peaches, greens.
    Well, you and your gorgeous fabrics and pretty kits changed all that. The Persimmon mauve stole my heart with the Fig and Plum collection along w/ the creamy peaches and silky greens and precious blues. I’m hooked! Thank you for sharing your wonderful story. I feel your lovley fabrics are a blend of all you have studied and become – in touch w/ the human soul.

  948. B. King | 7th Feb 11

    I like the coral type colors the most, but then again, I like them all!

  1018. Kristi Castanette | 7th Feb 11

    I love the plum color that is used in a few of your collections. Second place would be the light blue. So pretty!

  1019. Gwen Gooda | 7th Feb 11

    It’s pretty hard to pick a favourite but I am always drawn to the reds or browns and the the others just go right along! Amazing collections and it is very exciting to see each new one.

  1020. Candace Hitchcock | 7th Feb 11

    Probably my favorite color would be the Fig Tree green. I love all the Fig Tree lines, and can’t wait for your new line to come. I have to watch online for the new things, since we live out in the middle of nowhere.

    Candace

  1021. Lissa | 7th Feb 11

    love the browns!!!! great pillow….I love that you have put so much sentiment into your pillow making….great idea to use a variety of your past fabrics and the touch of your name on salvage…NEAT!

  1022. Kathy Wetherell | 7th Feb 11

    Make it handmade is wonderful the color that are Fresh Figs are beautiful

  1023. Candace Hitchcock | 7th Feb 11

    My favorite color probably would be the Fig Tree green. I love all the colors though. I can’t wait for the strawberry line to come out. I watch for the new things on your web site, or thru my email from you.

  1028. Gwen Gooda | 7th Feb 11

    Now for the hard one and really I don’t stand a chance here but as I have invested an hour or more trying to figure it all out I would have to say that you have some: Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Fig and Plum, Folklorique, Cornucopia, Mill House Inn and I’m sure I’ve missed some but I gave it a good stab!!! I had quite a few small pieces to try and figure it out may should have tried the creams!!! Ah well it was fun. Found some more of your material while looking on line though so time well spent!!!

  1029. Candace | 7th Feb 11

    Fig & Plum
    Fresh Cotton
    Gypsy Rose

    Patisserie
    Buttercup
    Gypsy Rose
    Gypsy Rose
    Whimsy

  1035. Bev | 7th Feb 11

    Hey, I love all of the Fig Tree colors, but I think my very favorite are the blues and buttery yellows. I can hardly resist them. Thanks for sharing your designing skills in allowing us to soak up all these great fabric colors and designs.

  1036. Kathlene | 7th Feb 11

    I love the corals and greens. They really help to tie in all your collections. But then, maybe the most beautiful color is the ivory tones.Awwww shucks they all are “can’t do withouts” Also like your top page. ‘Summertime Dreamin’.

  1037. Sandra Strickland | 7th Feb 11

    Trying to pick just one of your fabric colors is like
    trying to pick my favorite grandchild. I love them
    all and I love all of your fabrics. The apricots and
    the heathers are two that I think are wonderful.
    Thanks

  1038. Sue | 7th Feb 11

    Those fabrics sure put a bright spot on these cold, snowy days – I love the coral/brown/cream colors. The pillow idea would look great on each of the kitchen chairs. I will surely have to have the button tool. Can already think of cute earrings with it and embellish quilts – maybe flower centers on the quilts! A must have tool..Hope I win this give-away….Thanks

  1039. timdebthomas@yahoo.com | 7th Feb 11

    I do love the peaches and the buttery yellows. You capture them beautifully and so diffcult to find!!! So thank you for prodcuing my two favorite colors!!! 🙂

  1040. cabates@sbcglobal.net | 7th Feb 11

    I love all your patterns and fabric colors. I think my favorite color is the butterscotch.

  1041. Kathlene | 7th Feb 11

  1042. Tina | 7th Feb 11

    I love all the colors but greens have always been might favorite.

  1043. Sheri | 7th Feb 11

    Pillow Talk is so much fun! Thanks for such a great giveaway;-) A Day in the Country has my favorite colors–the greens with flowers and polka dots and twill. So peaceful and relaxing;-)

  1044. Kirsten | 7th Feb 11

    I’m loving the peach! But, really they’re all beautiful.

  1045. Dawna Twist | 7th Feb 11

    All your colors are wonderful and fit me perfectly! But choosing one is required so I would have to say Pond Blue.

  1046. Dorothy Ovelgoenner | 7th Feb 11

    I happened upon Fig Tree quite by accident a couple of years ago and have fallen in love with it. I love all of the colors but I feel that the yellow is absolutely perfect.

    Like most people have commented, I LOVE all the colors of your fabrics. The designs and the way you incorporate the two together are beautiful. I have noticed that I have been leaning more toward the peachy pinks in my quilt borders, and also when I make something scrappy. I even recently painted my work room in a color that matches one of your fabrics perfectly. That’s because I brought it to the store to get the right color! Everything you do is magic and I always look forward to getting the “fresh figs” emails. Buttons I think are “Dandelion Girl,Gypsy Rose, Fig and Plum, and Fresh Cottons”.??
    Julie K.

  1060. Kimberly Allen | 7th Feb 11

    Thanks so much! I love your light baby greens and creams! All is wonderful – thanks!

  1061. Suellen Wallis | 7th Feb 11

    I adore the yellows in your Urban Indigo collection. I dream of painting the walls of our house in Fig Tree Colors. In fact, I have taken fabric scraps with me to Lowes to aid in paint selection.

  1062. Suellen Wallis | 7th Feb 11

    I receive your newletter by email.

  1063. Kasey | 7th Feb 11

    If I were forced to pick JUST ONE color, today I would say the peach. Tomorrow it might be the green, though, or perhaps blue… my color favs cary every day depending on my mood/what I’m doing/even what I’m wearing! I love your pillow. Thanks for the chance to win!

  1064. Robin C | 7th Feb 11

    I have to say that my eye always goes to the colors in the yellow/gold family. but then I’m a fall color gal so that would be one of many that take my breath away.

  1065. Colette | 7th Feb 11

    Ok, that was difficult! I think the middle row is: Whimsy,Fig & Plum,Fresh Cotton, Patisserie, Folklorique, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Fresh Cotton, Folklorique, Allspice Tapestry, Fresh Cotton, Buttercream & Figs, Patisserie, & Cornucopia

  1066. Brita | 7th Feb 11

    I so looooove yellow, it’s always so comforting and cheery and yummy. I’d love to win me some 🙂

  1067. Shauna Q | 7th Feb 11

    Green. Especially the vintage green shades. It says spring, happy and home all at the same time!

  1068. Helen | 7th Feb 11

    How do you pick just one color…..I guess I would have to pick two…peach and cream, although my husband would say that cream isn’t even a color. They are all winners for my quilts!

  1069. Brita | 7th Feb 11

    I’m now following via email. I can’t wait to hear more about the button maker, want one! But meanwhile, I’d be happy with some yumm fabrics!

  1070. naomi | 7th Feb 11

    What I like about your color chords that you choose is that they all harmonize from collection to collection. Nothing jarring, everything fitting together from quilt design to quilt design. But the colors that sing to me the most are the apricots and butter yellows.

  1071. Susan Dulis-Rinne | 7th Feb 11

    Wow it is hard to pick one color as a favorite – the creams are best since they go with so many of your other fabrics – how is that for getting around the question? I love all of them and am looking forward to getting the Buttercup fabrics. I follow you on email.

  1072. Jan Richards | 7th Feb 11

    I am already a follower…love your look and designs.

    YOUR FABRICS ANDTHE QUILTS MADE FROM THEM ARE SO FEMININE AND PRETTY. kEEP IT COMING

  1074. Gwen Windham | 7th Feb 11

    Hi! I’m going to try to list the fabrics used in the cream/ivory strip on the pillow– which are SOOOOO beautiful, by the way… The very first on the left is one that I really couldn’t tell for sure because even when I enlarge the picture, there’s not much of the fabric to really get a look at, but it appears very similar to the 4th patch, so I will guess it’s from the Patisserie line. 2nd patch– Mill House, Cottled Cream 2011218. 3rd patch — Patisserie, Bisous Frosting 20103-16. 4th patch — Patisserie, Chantilly, Angel Food 20104-11. 5th patch — Folklorique, Scroll, 20047-12. 6th patch — Breakfast at Tiffany’s, 20143-12. 7th patch — Fresh Cottons, Chantilly Cream 20132-14. 8th patch — Fresh Cottons, Quince, 20050-16. 9th patch — Allspice Tapestry, Cream, Allspice Branches 20063-11. 10th patch– Folklorique – Ivory, Boquet 20048-26. 11th patch — Buttercream , Linen 2005-13. 12th patch — Urban Indigo, Cream 20058-14. 13th patch — Cornucopia, Harvest Floral 20035-26…
    Am I right?! 🙂 I HOPE SO!!! 🙂 I would SO love to win a pack or those beautiful fabrics. 2×2’s would make a lovely tabletopper or miniature doll quilt! Thanks!

  1075. paisleypam | 7th Feb 11

    I love your colors, but especially the pinks and blue-greens.

  1076. maureen | 7th Feb 11

    love the colours but the strawberry is my absolute favourite, closely followed by the peach.

  1077. Nan | 7th Feb 11

    It’s hard to choose just one color, since I love them all, but if I have to pick, it would be your soft butter yellows. No one else has anything like it. Seems like I need a little of it in every quilt I make.

  1078. paisleypam | 7th Feb 11

    I read your blog through my email.

  1083. Kimberly S. | 7th Feb 11

    Judging by my stash from Fig Tree, I must say that my favorite color is any shade of RED that Joanna comes up with or uses! I can hardly wait to see this new button covering gadget tomorrow….I’ll be hinting to my Valentine for sure!

  1084. julie murphy | 7th Feb 11

    Love all the colors in the new line coming out, but especially the peach and blues. Also curious to see the covered button maker tutorial and may have to have that tool! Darling pillows.

  1100. Sinta Renee | 7th Feb 11

    HI wanted to enter the giveaway(even though I was away from the computer over the weekend)! I love all of FT Fabrics, however, in general I don’t like blue… with the exception of Beach/Whimsy group. This blue has won me over.

  1101. Christine | 7th Feb 11

    I love all the Figtree colours but the creams are my favouite. Love quilts with lots of cream.

    I am a faithful follower BTW and loved the little question/answers of Pillow Talk! I wanted to share that I instituted “napkin fights” after dinner (I only use cloth napkins). It was a fun way for our “5 boys” to end dinner time… and even though they are grown… we still have napkin fights, which are much eaiser on me than pillow fighting!

  1104. Sue from Texas | 7th Feb 11

    “Dzien Dobry” Joanna~ I too am Polish-3rd generation and 1st generation quilter:-). Loved reading your story and wish you continued success! I {heart} all your dreamy, creamy colors! Thank you for a chance at your giveaway.

  1109. cathy conner | 7th Feb 11

  1112. Kathie Bugbee | 7th Feb 11

    Your fabrics are just so beautiful and feel so wonderful too. I would have to say your yellows are like melted butter and I love them. But the apricot and blue are probably my next 2 favorites. I follow you on emails

  1113. Bonnie Novak | 7th Feb 11

    I have to say tht Fig Tree Cream is my all time favorite because I use it with everything.. I have 10 yds left from the 25yd I started with.. Please dont ever stop making it!!

  1114. Mimi | 7th Feb 11

    You don’t make this easy having to pick just one colour… I guess it would be blue. Loved to read your pillow talk and I think your pillow is very sweet, especially with the buttons.

  1115. Mimi | 7th Feb 11
