It always feel so odd for me to announce the arrival of one collection- in this case Butterscotch & Rose- while literally at the exact same moment, introduce the newest group that we are about to show. But sometimes that's just the way it turns out….

So, today we would like to introduce to you our newest collection, due out in stores in Spring, 2012!



California Girl

 … a Summer Inspired Retro group reminiscent of days at the Boardwalk.


… fat quarter bundle of goodness.


… jelly roll of yumminess.


And the first quilt pattern that returned from the quilter…. Star Blooms. Available in two size blocks. Shown here is the 20" block. To see the rest, come visit us in Houston or check back here for more sneak peeks! 




Pattern and more info will be available in November!


Talk to you soon,

    Such pretty spring colors an I loved seeing Butterscotch and Rose yesterday. Love them both!

  32. Anne Mcclenaghan | 28th Oct 11

    Oh yes this fabric just talks to me. Just makes me happy looking at it with all the soft yet bright colors. I especially love the blue. It could be one of those you would not even cut for a while- just leave in it’s bundle to to appreciate for a bit. Nice work as usual.

  33. Martha | 28th Oct 11

    Ohhh my goodness, I’m just in love with all your fabric lines. What a gorgeous collection!!! I’m sure I’ll just HAVE to add to my mounting collection.

  34. Phyllis | 28th Oct 11

    Oh, Joanna, that is absolutely gorgeous… simple, but beautiful! How I wish I could join you in Houston! Every single one of your fabric lines have outstanding appeal!
    I wish I could work faster!!!!!

  35. Shannon Wallace | 28th Oct 11

    I keep saying to myself, this is my favorite Fig Tree Collection…and then you come out with something that’s equally cute! 🙂 I love this one because it incorporates the pretty baby blue. It gives this collection an old-fashioned feel to it. Not sure of what era, but maybe the 20’s or 30’s? (I’m probably way off). Anyway, I guess this is what I will be asking for from hubby for B-day and Christmas, some Fig Tree collections, which will include this, and Strawberry Fields and Buttercup! 🙂

  36. Linda DuBee | 28th Oct 11

    Now that it’s all quilted — beautiful!!

  38. Janine | 28th Oct 11

    I love these fabrics! The colors are lovely. I’m currently in love with Strawberry Fields…I’m sure this will be love too!

  39. Sharon (Michigan) | 28th Oct 11

    Gorgeous, gorgeous!! The blue is absolutely to die for!!

  40. CJ | 28th Oct 11

    ohhhh, maybe my daughter would choose this for her wedding quilt! I would love to work with it, gorgeous new line.

  41. Penny Harrison | 28th Oct 11

    SPECTACULAR Joanna!!! – am a native California Girl – naming the collection nails the “personality” of a California Girl and the beautiful landscape here too! . . . caught a glimpse of it in your last blog – note to self: better start saving $s now!! . . . agree with the previous quilters comments on Star Blooms pattern – note to self on that one too! When and where does the line form for the Spring introduction?

  42. Betsy Pratt | 28th Oct 11

    Oh Joanna!

    I don’t know how you do it! Another gorgeous group of fabrics and a beautiful quilt. I only wish I could be in Houston to see them up close…
    I hope you have a great market. I’m sure California Girl will be the Belle of the Ball.
    Note to self: must have a LOT of those CG blues!

  43. Judy Blinkenberg | 28th Oct 11

    Another beautiful collection I’ll need. Love this and I’m a California Girl. Yes, love it!!

  47. ellen | 28th Oct 11

    Love this collection. I lived in California while working, my children were born there and are still there even when I came home to paradise. I’ll definitely make a quilt from this collection to reminisce my life in CA. Mahalo for designing this–just for me!!

  48. Monica | 29th Oct 11

    I love your new California Girl collection and that quilt! I hope you’ll have a kit for this quilt because I love the exact color combination. Usually, I like to change things up some, but this is such a great combination of fabrics/colors. Really expresses the fabrics well and has the look I love.

  49. Debbie | 29th Oct 11

    Love the deep blues and corals in this line. Can’t wait to see them in person.

  50. Sandra Davidson | 29th Oct 11

    As usual once more beautiful, I could never say which is my favorite because with every new line I fall in love again. Have a good time at the show. Blessings Sandra

  51. Lacey | 29th Oct 11

  55. Tami | 30th Oct 11

    Hi Joanna….
    Seriously…..every single one of your fabric lines gets better and better and better. California Girls is to die for and I am sitting here now thinking how long will it be before I can buy some of that wonderful fabric?

    I love the colors! Can’t wait for it!

  61. janan | 31st Oct 11

    Wow, California Girl, what a different name for your line of fabric. I can just imagine it happened at a Flea Market!
    Love the new quilt, and the red fabric from Butterscotch is absolutely fabulous.

  62. Cindy Nixdorff | 3rd Nov 11

    What a beautiful line. I love the sharp blue print, ehat a great punch it brings to a lively new bundle. Can’t wait to see it our in stores 🙂 Pattern is awesome to….looks like a nice quilt to lay under while enjoying a good book in the hammock 🙂

  63. Nicola | 8th Nov 11

    Congratulations (again!) on another lovely, lovely collection.

    Don’t know whether you’ve noticed, but there is a PDF of the collection up on the Moda website – love these btw, they always group the fabrics by colour, which is really useful – and it really showcases that beautiful toile! My favourite…I think!! x
