Market Fabric Snapshots

Fig Tree went traditional this time around. Classic and traditional with some of our most popular colors from best selling lines. Do you recognize any of them?

Introducing Butterscotch & Rose….

For a dash of classic elegance for Fall 2011. I hope it conjurs [sp?] up visions of fall and winter projects and even a bit of home redecorating. I created it for autumn, but some of my customers have shown me that it is certainly perfect for the holidays as well! Pull out the rich reds and classic greens paired with the cream and Christmas is just around the corner. I wonder what you might create?

Tune in tomorrow for a chance to get some in person…. soon!  A giant box of MODA goodness just arrived and I am itching to do something with some of it!


Here are my favorite shots of the colorways.

Red stack

… Ruby.



… Butterscotch & Buttercream.


… Sky.



… Fresh Tarragon, Frosting Rose, Chocolate Tart.



Here is the inspiration story:

"Inspired by the sights and smells of a recent autumn getaway in the little wine country town of Sonoma, California, Butterscotch & Rose is my interpretation of my favorite season! The collection flowed directly from the mix of harvest leaves, gourmet bistros, walks in the woods, gorgeous tones of roses still blooming [after all this is California] and the scents of the beginnings of the wine harvest. I hope that I was able to capture all that this region brought to me as its September gift."

    I may have to have a yard sale to drum up the $$, but I think I’ll be buying this entire collection in yardage as well as layer cakes – love it! My favorite was the taragon mixture.

    Love your interpretation of Butterscotch & Rose. September… Fall is my favorite and so is your “gorgeous” line of fabric. Wonderful!
    BTW ~ Fun meeting you at Market!

    Wonderful fabrics, I especially like the ‘Sky’ ones. You did a wonderful job (as usual) and I already informed Fat that I want to be notified when this fabric hits their shop! Can’t wait!
    Hugs, Marja (Netherlands and my Gran was Polish, by the way)

    This line reminds me a lot of Allspice!
    I can’t wait to get my hands on those reds, pinks and blues. I just love the blues you come out with! Always so gorgeous and they go so well together without being the same.

    Oh, how stunning — every one of those fabrics is, I think, an absolute must have! Makes me think of late September here when the days are getting cooler and the sky has that wonderful crisp light as opposed to summer hazy light.

    I need all of the fabrics please before October the baby quilt needs to be finished by then. Baby is due in October It is so beautiful but then your fabrics always are my favorite the blues. Am saving for all fat quarters and yardage can’t wait. Could I buy a jelly roll or layer cake sooner then October? Debbie

    The precuts usually release about a month before the yardage comes so you can expect them sometime in September, 2011. Hopefully that will be in time for your baby quilt!


  36. Wendy P | 6th Jun 11

    Crying! I swore to myself I wouldn’t buy any more fabrics this year. Then I saw these. Now I have to save up, cause I will NOT miss out on this line!!!
