We are so excited for this one we can hardly stand it!

… one of my favorite brand new patterns, LOLLIPOPS, made up in the AVALON collection with 1 Jelly Roll and some background and border fabric. There are no sewing templates in this pattern. I promise! Its a fantastic method that we have loved for years!

 

ABOUT THE QUILT ALONG

For those of you who are regulars over here but aren't quite sure what this QUILT ALONG is all about, here are some pointers:

β€’ Each day [starting last Monday and going through March 1st], 3 different MODA designers are blogging about the Quilt Along and are sharing their own block with you. You can see the list of designers blogging each day at the end of this post. Each block can be easily downloaded on each designer's blog as a pdf.

β€’ Each designer is also having a MODA fabric giveaway [courtesy of the wonderfully generous MODA mothership] of one of their collections so if you enter at each blog, you will have a great chance of WINNING something. Free blocks and free fabric, is there anything more perfect?!

β€’ All of the blocks finish at 9" and would all work wonderfully in a sampler quilt. The instructiuons are all simple strip pieced and they all the blocks can be made from Fat 1/8's or large scraps so its perfect for your scrap bucket too.The directions for the blocks are all from Fat 1/8's.

β€’ Warning: This could be a bit too much fun. We have gotten a bit addicted in just 3 days time!

HAVING A LITTLE FUN

Now I have to tell you that I just couldn't get into the Farmer's Wife quilt along [the one that swept the web last year] for a couple of reasons… the blocks were so small and they were all templates. Two things which I really don't love. So personally I enjoyed that one from far away. They were beautiful but I was happy to watch it go by.

This one… however.. is 9" blocks, which are just much more my speed, and no templates.That's right, not a template in site.

When I tell you that you can easily do all 3 of each day's block in that afternoon, I really mean it. Because I have kind of been doing it. Not all of them, but most of them….

This is our block… which I cut and pieced in under an hour, both of them.

Myblocks

It's Block #15 in the Quilt Along. I'm a bit addicted to it and plan on making it in several other color combinations and sprinkling it about my sampler or even making it every other block…. I guess we'll have to see how it goes. The flying geese are quite fun to make when you know yoiu only have to make eight! And it looks good in so many different fabric combos!

Now to visit some of our friends who have shared since Monday, since this is a Friendship Quilt Along after all…

A FEW TIPS FROM OUR SEWING:

TIP
#1: Many of these blocks use the method of sewing a square onto a
rectangle, on the diagonal and then trimiming out the excess fabrics
underneath. Whenever I use that method [which I love and use often], I
trim out only the extra side of the piece on top and not whatever fabric
was used for the bottom rectangle. This is because if you leave the
bottom piece intact, it acts a foundation of sorts for your block. You
cut that piece and it should be exactly the size you want it to be
whereas the piece on top has been sewn and is often slightly irregular,
coming out a bit shy of the shape or a bit large. The piece on the
bottom will always be accurate and will help you with easier piecing as
you build your block. The bulk of the extra piece has never been a
problem for me or my quilter. The only time you can't use this method is
when the piece that is being added on top is white/light and the piece
underneath is dark. You must them trim out both pieces.i Try it and see
some great results.

Tip
#2: On Anne's block we didn't want to fuss with the thin bias tape so
we used a 3/8" bias tape maker, made a small piece of bias from the end
of the fabric strip, ran it through the maker and affixed it to our
triangle with little dots of Roxanne's Glue Baste It. It was quick and
easy.

We plan on making many more blocks as more of our friends share them so check back over here throughout the QUILT ALONG to see how they are turning out! We might even make more tomorrow!


Sailawaymain… our SAIL AWAY pattern. All of those boats are made from one Layer Cake. Can you believe it? We love, love this quilt.

    My favorite has to be the candy apple red small floral. Guess what my favorite color is! They are all beautiful!

  2. dee | 21st Feb 13

    I adore Fig Tree and Avalon line – the sail boats are ADORABLE. I don’t think I can pick just one of this line as a favorite, althought, I am a red girl – but the blues are such a stunning accent. Just finished a quilt using your Breakfast at Tiffany – Love it too. Thank you for the opportunity to enjoy this line.

  3. Sandy M | 21st Feb 13

    Your blocks look fantastic. I think i should start sewing a few of these myself.
    My favorite colorway from the new Avalon line is the Mimosa. robin’s Egg is right there with it, but Mimosa is my fav.

  4. Lynn b | 21st Feb 13

    I am really like the combo of flowers and dots and stripes. I think my fav is probably the small print flower/rose in pistachio or mimosa. I also love the cherries on robin egg. So sweet. Thanks for designing such beautiful color ways!

  5. Izzy | 21st Feb 13

    I love the red in all of the prints! Red is by far my favourite colour, but in this collection, the red is absolutely fabulous! I even signed up for the Fat Quarter Shop’s 2013 Designer Mystery BOM just because the fabric this year is Avalon. πŸ™‚

  6. Debbie | 21st Feb 13

    I love the robin’s egg blue. I love the sail boat quilt.

  7. Wendy | 21st Feb 13

    I love all your fabrics, but I am really falling in love with Avalon. I am most excited about the dark blues in this collection (I think you are calling it Nantucket)…and my favorite print is the one with the little white flowers on the blue background (#20207). Thanks for the generous give away!!!

  8. Erin Baker | 21st Feb 13

    I’ve been following the Moda quilt along, and can’t wait to *hopefully* work on some of the squares this weekend! I LOVE the navy blue + white polka dot in the Avalon fabric line! For some reason I find it difficult to find a lot of navy, which I love! Thanks for the chance to win!

  9. Mah Quilter | 21st Feb 13

    Hi Joanna,
    I love all of them but there are two I am looking forward to working with. Both are Wicker Gray. Numbers 20215 13 and 20203 13. Wishing all who read this a great day.

  10. Lynn b | 21st Feb 13

    By the way I can’t wait for Avalon to come out!

  11. Anita K | 21st Feb 13

    Oh Boy how to choose, I’m crazy about them all, however I really really love the Wicker Grey with the cherries. A great giveaway, Good Luck to everyone!!!

  12. Trina | 21st Feb 13

    Love the color combinations in the new Avalon! I think my favorite is the small flower prints (20207), especially in the Robins Egg blue. The print reminds me of the scrappy fabrics my grandmother used.

  13. Tina in Nevada | 21st Feb 13

    I can’t wait to see all of the Navy in Avalon. It’s such a wonderful surprise of color! Love your fabrics!!

  14. Bertie | 21st Feb 13

    Thank you for the block, they are all fabulous. I love to enter for the reds or creams, thank you.

  15. Sandra Timmons | 21st Feb 13

    Your sailboat pattern is a cutey and would make any child happy to have it in their possession. Being a lover of Valentine’s Day and a birthday this month, I love red fabric or solid as well as blue. Your giveways are just awesome and will make one of us quilters so very happy to win. Thank you for the chance to win and hope 2013 brings you lots of wonderful things to come.

  16. Deb | 21st Feb 13

    FUN fabric and colors! Hard to choose just one but I would have to go with the Candy Apple Red! Love the block, too! Thanks for sharing!!

  17. Dianne | 21st Feb 13

    I love those navy dots!

  18. Julie | 21st Feb 13

    Your block is so sweet and your upcoming collection is a must-have! I love the sweet little cherry print, but honestly it is almost impossible to choose. They are all beautiful!

  19. Susie Johnson | 21st Feb 13

    Pistachio for sure, I can’t get enough of any color of green!

  20. Karen | 21st Feb 13

    I love the Robin’s egg colors. Your fabric line is very refreshing!

  21. LeslieBee | 21st Feb 13

    Love…. all of them. I think number 20205 is my favorite pattern. It looks so fresh and a little like trellised flowers. I’m having a hard time deciding between the Red and the Pistachio….

  22. Elaine Satterfield | 21st Feb 13

    I am loving all the Pistachio prints in your Avalon line! This quilt-along is great and I love all the blocks you have made! Thank you for the smart tips!

  23. Lauren aka Giddy99 | 21st Feb 13

    I like 20203 17 in Robins Egg the best! Thanks for the chance!

  24. Darlene | 21st Feb 13

    I agree with you. Those small blocks are cute but I don’t have the patience for them. Might be a hand piecing job while tv watching. I like your blocks.

  25. Becky Greene | 21st Feb 13

    I love all of the navy prints, but the Wicker Gray is just fabulous also!! Thanks for sharing the great block and the tips. Thanks, too, for the chance to win some wonderful fabric!!!!

  26. Lisa | 21st Feb 13

    The large floral in either the Robin’s Egg or Wicker Gray. I just love them. I love all the prints.

  27. tiffinee morris | 21st Feb 13

    My favorite is the grey’s all of them. I think they are gorgeous! Hopefully I win the chance to make something out of these great fabrics!
    tiffandbran2005@gmail.com

  28. Barbara | 21st Feb 13

    The whole collection is wonderful! If I have to pick, I’d go with the reds, #20205 in particular.I think all the blocks from this hop would look great in the red collection.

  29. Jill Hicks | 21st Feb 13

    I am looking forward to the Robin’s Egg color way. I also like the Pistachio.

  30. Lou | 21st Feb 13

    I like the Candy Apple reds and the Pistachios….they would be great together!!!!!
    Sweet block!!!

  31. Rebecca S. | 21st Feb 13

    Love, love, love the Nantucket Blue! I’m especially fond of the small floral (and the polka dots). Close tie for second with the Candy Apple Red and the Mimosa (you make the perfect yellows!) Now if I could only find more of the Ocean blue from California Girl I think that would look great with the Nantucket Blue.

  32. Martha | 21st Feb 13

    Love the blues — all of them! Can’t wait for this line to come out.

  33. Mary | 21st Feb 13

    It is a beautiful collection and my favorite is the reds – all of them. Your quilt is going to be gorgeous!

  34. Linda S | 21st Feb 13

    I think that the daisy large floral & the pistachio stencil-like prints are my two favorites…they will look lovely together!!

  35. Meredith | 21st Feb 13

    I am really looking forward to the Navy!

  36. Tiffany | 21st Feb 13

    I am looking forward to the yellow. I always love the yellow prints in your collections!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  37. Jo | 21st Feb 13

    Wow! I love all the Candy Apple Red collection … in fact all the collection is beautifull lol !

  38. Samantha | 21st Feb 13

    I love the olive green color way and I love love love the block you share with us πŸ™‚

  39. Allison Evrard | 21st Feb 13

    Thanks so much for the tips you posted and for the chance to win. I particularly like those candy apple red prints. Actually, the whole line is gorgeous!

  40. Sandy D | 21st Feb 13

    Thanks for tutorial I am going to give that a try not cutting both layers of fabric.My favorite in the Avalon LIne is the Candy Apple Red specifically 20202 14 but I do like them all. Thanks.

  41. Kathy | 21st Feb 13

    I love the blues the best, but the Nantuckets are my favorites – any of the prints will do! I love the background color on your Carnival Lollipops. To me the quilt is a bird’s eye view of beach umbrellas on a sandy beach, which will be perfect for the home that we plan to purchase in Florida. You are so talented and so generous to us groupees! I wish you and yours a blessed and fruitful year!

  42. Paula | 21st Feb 13

    What a great post. I enjoyed seeing the finished blocks and the great tips. I love ALL of Avalon, but this fabric spoke to me. πŸ™‚ ???? 20207 17 Robins Egg
    Have a great day!

  43. Sherry | 21st Feb 13

    I have used quite a bit of Fig Tree fabrics in the projects I have done so far as a new quilter. I love the Robin’s egg prints and also the Pistachio. This is a beautiful collection.

  44. janet@unitedwireless.com | 21st Feb 13

    You can never go wrong with the candy apple red!! jmh

  45. BLT | 21st Feb 13

    Just like your book, you give advice/instruction concerning constructing blocks. Consequently, I have bookmarked it. Love the bright blues!! …and of red!!!

  46. Hannah | 21st Feb 13

    So many nice blocks using flying geese….several to try. such springy colors!

  47. Michele T | 21st Feb 13

    I am loving the small flower prints… such a pretty fabric line!! Thanks for your tips!!

  48. Lacey S. | 21st Feb 13

    I love the Candy Apple Red & Pistachio colors the best out of the whole collection…all of which is just lovely πŸ™‚ I LOVE your quilt blocks (so far!) that you’ve put together…the quilt will be just great

  49. Deb W. | 21st Feb 13

    I love the blue dot fabric. It makes everything just a little bit brighter.

  50. Melanie Morgan | 21st Feb 13

    Thanks for your tips! Your blocks look great. The entire Avalon collection is so pretty, but I especially love the navy.

  51. marcella | 21st Feb 13

    I love those itty bitty polka dots in daisy grey – I have a thing for dots and find a background worthy one is hard to do!

  52. Gina M | 21st Feb 13

    I always love your greens so the pistachio is my favorite…but my husband loves blues and sailing so the combination of your sailboat pattern (which I already purchased!)and Avalon (can’t wait!) will make us both happy! Thanks for sharing your talent with us.

  53. Andrea Hickman | 21st Feb 13

    I can’t decide between the Robin’s Egg and the Pistachio. Absolutely gorgeous line you have created, and i can’t wait to get my hands on some!

  54. Tammy | 21st Feb 13

  55. Bev | 21st Feb 13

    I tried, but I can’t pick a favorite! I simply love the way the colors work together …they somehow make you smile inside and out.

  56. Susan | 21st Feb 13

    I just can’t wait to see the newest pop of blue….of course I can see the entire collection made up in some wonderful things, but that blue may just be the nautical touch that sends me over the edge….susan

  57. abby | 21st Feb 13

    I love your new Avalon line – and got my hands on a jelly roll and charm pack off etsy. I’ve been making the Round and Round pattern by Camille out of Avalon and it is so cute! I think I love the navy the best. Its fun and bright new pop of color. I can’t wait to make the lollipops quilt out of it. I’m loving your blocks – so fun to see them made out and love them in Avalon – ummmm may have to get a bundle of it now!

  58. Sandiemackintosh@yahoo.com | 21st Feb 13

    I cant wait to get some of the pale blue with the red flower buds on it… just so sweet and soft looking!

  62. Toni Anne Potter | 21st Feb 13

    My favorites are lg. floral Robins Egg and sm. floral Pistachio, I couldn’t choose just one. Joanna you never disappoint, every collection is beautiful. The only problem is I hate cutting it up, I love it too much. Thanks, off to download your block. ;-> Toni Anne

  63. Arlene L. | 21st Feb 13

    I’ve been dying for the new Avalon line to come out! I love all the different prints, but I’m most excited about the addition of the Nantucket florals.

  64. Kelly K | 21st Feb 13

    I love the little cherry prints, but I’m also excited for the dark blue colorway! This line makes for great Americana quilts and I can’t wait for it to come out!

  65. Donna W | 21st Feb 13

    Hard to choose which one since they are all beautiful, but I will go with Pistachio. Just love the shades of green. Thanks for the block and the “tips”.

  66. mamamousie | 21st Feb 13

    I love 20203 17 Robins Egg–okay, I love them all! As usual your fabric line is beautiful. Thanks for the construction tips.

  73. Peggy Reilly | 21st Feb 13

    Do I see a dark blue polka dot fabric? I love dark blue and I also love polka dots. I couldn’t be happier when looking at this new fabric line. Thanks so much for the cute block and great instructions!

  74. Nancy M | 21st Feb 13

    I am a blue girl, so I love the 20202-15 Nantucket blue floral best. It is a beautiful collection.

  75. Sharon | 21st Feb 13

    Looking forward to the dark blue prints because I don’t think you’ve used that color in any of the previous lines of yours that I have…and I have most of them. Love, love, love the sailboats. I already have the pattern. Just waiting for the fabric and I’ll get right to making it. Thanks for the free pattern and giveaway.

  76. Karen aka Lady K | 21st Feb 13

    What a lovely blog to talk about and display your lovely fabrics, patterns and ideas! Wow!!
    Honestly, being a fan of your California Girl collection, I can’t wait for the whole collection of Avalon to debut but I am most excited about using those rich navy blue prints. Good luck with the launch and I love your block for the Moda Friendship Quilt Along!

  77. wendy | 21st Feb 13

    I’ve been collecting all these blocks on the hop but unfortunately I work full time so have no time to sew them up!
    I’m a big fan of your fabrics and looking forward to Avalon, my favourite is *20207 14 Candy Apple Red

  78. Laurie | 21st Feb 13

    I just LOVE your fabric lines and all the colors you work with! I especially love the daisy and mimosa in Avalon.
    I’d love to do this Quilt along!

  79. Michelle P. | 21st Feb 13

    I love all of the navy prints!

  80. Laura K | 21st Feb 13

    I love the navy blue! It gives the collection such a pop of vibrant color. My next favorite would have to be the reds though. Which is funny because I don’t normally love red much but it has been growing on me recently. Thank you for the beautiful block and the chance to win.

  81. Elizabeth Jenkins | 21st Feb 13

    I am really looking forward to working with Avalon. I really like Pistachio and Candy Apple but all the colors look so nice together.

  82. Terry Fassburg | 21st Feb 13

    Candy apple red is my favorite, although there are several others that are close seconds: navy, pistachio, robin’s egg blue.

  83. Hueisei | 21st Feb 13

    I can’t wait for Navy in Avalon.

  84. Paula | 21st Feb 13

    I love the whole collection but I think my favourite fabric is the Candy Apple Red #20205.

  85. Cheryl | 21st Feb 13

    Cannot wait for the navy blue…..just love how it pops:-)

  86. Debbie St. Germain | 21st Feb 13

    I really like all of the shades and colors, but my favorite is the nantucket, since I love the ocean.

    Debbie

  87. NQuinn | 21st Feb 13

    I am looking forward to the 20207-15 Nantucket print specifically and everything in the Robin’s Egg and Candy Apple colors. I love all the Fig Tree fabric collections since they coordinate so well together. I think Avalon will go well with some of my leftover Strawberry Fields scraps.

  88. Jenny W | 21st Feb 13

    Thanks for the great block and chance to win! I’m most looking forward to the Blue print with the white flowers with yellow centers. Very sweet!

  89. Nancy | 21st Feb 13

    I’ll have to go with the blues, both the navy and the robin’s egg. Just lovely.

  90. Diana | 21st Feb 13

    I love the navy blue in this collection. It makes me feel like summer. But that was also my husbands reaction on the quilt i made entirely of Fig Tree fabrics. I used mainly strawberry fields and some californian girl and some butterscotch and rose. I noticed a lot of fabrics contained a nice dot!
    Looking at the prints I would certainly buy 20206, stripes and tartans are needed in a quilt!

  91. Tami | 21st Feb 13

    Well, do I really have to pick just one fabric or color I am looking forward to? I LOVE all of your fabrics, always have and no doubt, always will. But I do love the navy fabrics in Avalon.

  92. Heather Braun | 21st Feb 13

    I love the 20202 12 Mimosa, I’m really into yellows right now! Thanks for the chance to win this gorgeous collection!
    mrs(dot)hbraun(at)gmail(dot)com

  93. MomHylle | 21st Feb 13

    I think the Mimosa print appeals to me the most because ir’s such a wntry day & I’m looking forward to sunny spring days, but the cherries on robin’s egg blue is awfully nice, too. Thanks for participating!

  94. Debbie | 21st Feb 13

    I love the Nantucket and Candy Apple Red roses. Both are just too gorgeous to choose between them! Thanks for the pattern and chance to win!

  95. Judy W | 21st Feb 13

    Beautiful fabric and beautiful patterns. Love your new line. Delicate with a touch of bold colors in the bright blue. I love Pistachio. What a pretty color. Thanks for the chance.

  96. Willa | 21st Feb 13

    Nantucket!
    Closely followed by Candy Apple Red.

  97. Sue bone | 21st Feb 13

    I’m lookiing forward to the buttery yellows in your line.

  98. JD Little | 21st Feb 13

    I love the dots and stripes. I am really into them right now. Your helpful hints were great. Thanks for the chance to win.

  99. Natalya H | 21st Feb 13

    This looks likes so much fun! I would have to say my favorite print is the Robin’s Egg blue. I’m in love with all your FigTree designs… I think it is what has started me quilting πŸ™‚

  100. Diane S | 21st Feb 13

    I love the Candy Apple Red fabric. And the Sail Away pattern is very cute. Thanks for the chance giveaway!!

  101. Regina | 21st Feb 13

    I Love dots and blue so I’m loveing Nantucket. Your Sail Away quilt is so sweet, I see one in my grandson’s future. Thanks for the chance to win.

  102. Hildy | 21st Feb 13

    I especially like 20205 13 Wicker Grey because it will go with everything. Beautiful fabrics, thanks for the chance to win!

  104. srgland@svtv.com | 21st Feb 13

    Hard to pick just one but because I love green, I have to go with *20202 11 Pistachio. Love the name Pistachio!!

  105. Domestic Bliss | 21st Feb 13

    The Avalon line is so beautiful, it’s difficult to choose just one color, but the Daisy color is especially beautiful and soft, particularly the 20200 with the larger flowers.
    Thank you for the sewing tips… and I’m so impressed with the squares that you’ve been making!! They look wonderful!

  106. Karen C. | 21st Feb 13

    The colors and prints work together so well that it’s very tough to choose favorites. Colorwise, I like the navy large rose print, but I couldn’t be without the little cherry print in cream or gray! I think this line is very unique in that it has an Americana or nautical feel, yet maintains the softness that is Fig Tree at the same time…I really love that! We are going to see some beautiful quilts made with Avalon.

  107. Karyn | 21st Feb 13

    The Beautiful Blue Polka Dots! I thought of a little girls triple ruffle pants right away! And I think I would have to make the top with the lighter blue fabric! I also signed up right away for FQS Mystery Designer block quilt! Can’t wait to have these yummy Avalon fabrics in my hands! Thanks Joanna for the joy you give us with your designs!

  108. Diane Smith | 21st Feb 13

    It’s hard to choose, since I love all your fabrics, but I think the light blue with the medium sized flowers (20203 17) is the cutest!

  145. mary j. b. | 21st Feb 13

  151. Diane Wright | 21st Feb 13

    I love the robin egg’s blue with the red! Making me choose which is my favorite is impossible because I am drooling over the entire sku! Thank you for the tips and awesome giveaway.

  152. Kathy S | 21st Feb 13

    I love the beautiful blue Nantucket fabrics from your Avalon collection. They would be great in a two-color blue and white quilt.

  153. Kathy h | 21st Feb 13

    Very pretty block and I am glad there are no templates. Much easier that way for me. I love the pistachio fabric. Just beautiful.

  154. debra kinkade | 21st Feb 13

    I love polka dots in any color…but the Nantucket polka dots are just such a perfect punch of color in the collection…lovely!

  156. Karen | 21st Feb 13

    The Nantucket!!! For sure the navy, which is a great addition to the always wonderful Fig Tree palette.

  157. Emily | 21st Feb 13

    I am loving the aqua with red little flowers. Lately I have been drawn to light blue or aqua back grounds in quilts like yours with the sale boat or Camille’s Zipper quilt.

  158. Debra Caillier | 21st Feb 13

    Love all the fabrics but especially the red ones!

  159. Heidi | 21st Feb 13

    The Candy Apple color looks good enough to eat… it’s hard to decide between those or the Wicker Greys which are also right up my alley. Love it all, can’t wait for the FQS BOM to begin!

  160. Nicola | 21st Feb 13

    Oh, that little cherry print on a robin’s egg background: gorgeous! I’ve never made clothes,but a cute skirt in that print would be lovely with a white t-shirt and sandals (who am I kidding, I live in England… I mean a jumper and Wellington boots!!). The whole line is beautiful, Joanna, can’t wait to see it made up into a friendship quilt x

  161. Sylvie Bissonnette | 21st Feb 13

    I’m new to your blog and I must say, I really like the entire Avalon collection. I’m also new to the Moda friendship quilt along. It’s a lot of fun. I can’t wait until the next day to see the blocks. I hope to be able to make most of them. Thanks for the chance to win.

  162. Joanna | 21st Feb 13

    Re: TypePad: [Fresh Figs] Nicola submitted a comment on MODA Friendship Quilt Along

  176. Kay Eyles | 21st Feb 13

    Really, I can only choose one? I love and adore Robin’s Egg, and also the Mimosa, however I think the candy Apple red would go with so many other prints too. Maybe I just need all of them! Thanks for a great post, especially the tips, Love the giveaway too, thanks for the chance.

  177. Diane | 21st Feb 13

    I like the pop in 20202 Nantucket. But, all of them are so refreshing, a breath of air on a grey day. Your quilt blocks make me want to start sewing this minute.

  178. Sunnybec | 21st Feb 13

    Candy apple red is my favourite and I love the little sailing boat pattern.

  179. Siobhan | 21st Feb 13

    I love the Avalon line! I am usually drawn to reds, and I love them in this collection, but I think I’m most looking forward to the blues.

    I haven’t succumbed to the FW quilts, either, though I keep thinking about it. I LOVE the idea of doing the Moda blocks in your fabrics!

  180. Linda | 21st Feb 13

    The reds are genious. They pull together all the other colors: perfect with those buttery yellows, cool aquas and your new bright blue. I am in love with the Sail Away pattern. I am waiting to make a baby boy quilt for someone soon!

  181. Patty V. | 21st Feb 13

    I love the red with white polka dots.

  182. mrsmoore | 21st Feb 13

  195. Grandma Rita | 21st Feb 13

    It has taken me years to warm up to anything blue. What really got me started was the robins egg blues and aqua blues, they really spoke to me. What I love about the new line is the darker blues, they really make the collection sparkle. I am excited to do something with Avalon. This coming from an obsessed red collector!

  196. Ferne | 21st Feb 13

    I am thinking that the new Wicker Gray looks like something I will find a lot of use for. Though Pistachio and Apple Red are really yummy, too!

  197. Janet | 21st Feb 13

    I love both the navy and the red. I just can’t narrow it down more than that! And dots! Love dots!

  198. Rebekka | 21st Feb 13

    My Davorite is the Wicker Gry Floral. But I love all of your Fabics!!!!!!!!

  199. Wenda | 21st Feb 13

    I love all the colors but it is that pop of navy that really does it for me!

  200. Erin | 21st Feb 13

    I just love the whole line of fabric! I can’t chose one.

  201. Polly Hada | 21st Feb 13

    Oh Joanna, your fabrics are simply the BEST! I adore the Robin’s egg blue in your new line and simply must win this giveaway. The Sail Away quilt is divine and must be part of my spring quilting repertoire. Everything you design/make/sell just makes me happy. Fingers crossed.

  202. Jennifer B | 21st Feb 13

    I LOVE the entire Avalon collection, but what I am most excited about is the touch of navy. I think that is brilliant. 20208 Nantucket.
    Thanks for the chance at this amazing giveaway and the tips on sewing the blocks.

  203. Christy Stahnke | 21st Feb 13

    Your colors are absolutely beautiful. Very fresh and invigorating. Love it!

  204. Michelle | 21st Feb 13

    Love the greens! πŸ™‚

  205. Heidee | 21st Feb 13

    Oh my goodness! Avalon is delicious! Although Robin’s Egg is my all time favourite, I am especially excited about a Nantucket and Candy Apple Red combination. I was having a look through your site the other day and my littlie caught sight of your Sail Away quilt… “That one, Mummy! You have to get that fabric!” It’s so nice that I’m not the only one in this household who’s ultra excited about the release of Avalon! And the Boy’s already told me what I’m making with it too. Bonus!!

  206. Maureen Bingham | 21st Feb 13

    I love your new collection, I like the Robins Egg color, and the off white color, I like the pattern with the daisys. But I have always liked the lines that you have put out. My mom and I took a mystery quilt class, and we both chose Fig Tree fabrics for our quilts. I am very excited and waiting to see these in our local quilt shop. Thanks for your wonderful designs.

  207. Rae | 21st Feb 13

    I love the large floral print in Robin’s Egg. The entire collection is beautiful, and I’m already planning a project for it. Thanks!

  208. Renee | 21st Feb 13

    I am in love with the navy (as well as the rest, of course!). That navy just adds a little somethin’ somethin”.

  209. Janelle J | 21st Feb 13

    I love the little cream print with red cherries. It’s calling to be a cute background! I am drawn to the new navy blue though!

    Oh, for sure I’d pick the Nantucket blue. Something new to Fig Tree and a great addition to the color palate!

  214. Suzanne | 21st Feb 13

    I had to go to Moda’s website to see the Avalon line. I really, really like the look of it and will be thinking of a project to make with it. Without seeing it for real, it’s hard to pick a favorite, but one I know I’ll use is 20203 17 in Robins Egg, the smaller scale print in the Robin’s Egg blue.

  215. Katie | 21st Feb 13

    I love red so must pick your cute print. Thanks for the chance to win.

  216. Tammy Edwards | 21st Feb 13

    Hard to pick just one, I am so in love with this whole line. #20207 12 Mimosa reminds me of the decor in my room in Provence,France(my sister gave me the trip for my birthday…a dream come true)so I pick it! Thank you for the awesome sewing tips,the beautiful block and a chance to win one of your giveaways.
    Your blog is always such a beautiful place to visit πŸ™‚

  217. Jeanne | 21st Feb 13

    I actually love all of your collections. The “soft” colors are what drew me in originally so this is odd when I say that I really love the navy in this collection.

  218. Deb C | 21st Feb 13

    What first grabbed my attention was the color 20202 Nantucket. Thank you for all the tips. I’m going to print them out to have on hand when I collect all the patterns. I just love Avalon!

  219. Donna Wilson | 21st Feb 13

    This is a great tutorial and fabric line. Thanks so much ;). The robin’s egg blue reminds me of spring and it is my favorite. I am ready for spring and tired of winter.

  225. Terri M | 21st Feb 13

    Oh my G-O-O-D-N-E-S-S! I so much can’t wait for Avalon! I love this collection more than any other, and I loved them too! My favorite is the cherries! I have a thing for cherry fabric,not sure why I just love it! Thanks for this awesome giveaway, I so much want to win this one so bad..

  226. Anjeanette | 21st Feb 13

    You want me to pick my favorite? I love the Avalon line! I am terribly excited to see the new Nantucket blue included in this line. But my favorite color is the Mimosa. I really love them all. I think I would love to do this Friendship along in Avalon. I just love it! Your blocks look so wonderful in it.

  227. Gail Sundstrom | 21st Feb 13

    Avalon is just so fresh!! My favorite(s) are all of the Wicker Grey and the Nantucket 20207 15. I also like your comments setup. Some of the designer’s comment sections don’t work for me. Thanks a lot — your designs are beautiful. Gail

  228. DeAnna Dodson | 21st Feb 13

    Oooh, I just can’t decide between Mimosa and Robins Egg. SO delicious!

    The blues have it, the Robin Egg and the navy. The Avalon is really striking!!! Love It!

  237. Clara | 21st Feb 13

    Hmm…lots of my favorite colors make it hard to choose. Overall, I think I am in a pistachio “phase” right now, but I do really like the flowers in the Nantucket blue.

  238. Jennifer | 21st Feb 13

    I’m happy to be working with an Avalon jelly roll already, so I have enjoyed all the prints so far. My favorite is probably the 20205 pattern in all colors, or the 20202-15 pattern in the navy blue. Thanks for the giveaway Fig Tree!

  239. janet | 21st Feb 13

    I like the robin’s egg blue prints. They looks so much like spring. (I just can’t wait for it to be spring!)

  240. Shawn | 21st Feb 13

    I love red and pistachio colors the best.
    Love the quilt blocks

  241. Sheila | 21st Feb 13

    Gorgeous fabrics, hard to choose a favorite, love them all but I was especially taken with Pistachio 20202 11, so pretty .Thanks for the great block and the chance to win.

  242. zuska | 21st Feb 13

    It is so beautiful collection, I love all prints and my the most favorite colors are Red and Yellow. Lovely.

  243. Linda P | 21st Feb 13

    I am always drawn to red so I would say the Candy Apple, however after seeing that Robin’s Egg blue – it’s a close call!! My hubster’s daughter recently moved out of our Florida house, and we are fixing it up, so the little sail boat pattern would be so darling. We are on the east coast and with the Indian River located there, we often see the sail boats. Your block is super – I love making flying geese blocks, and I agree with you making those connector corners and cutting the “flippy” off.
    Thank you, JoAnna!

  244. Lana | 21st Feb 13

    I love Candy Apple Red! It was hard to choose, I love Avalon Collection! Thank you for the chance to win!

  245. Linda K | 21st Feb 13

    Well, I was going to say Red because I LOVE all things red, but I’m picking the Wicker Grey. I don’t have much grey in my stash but I think it will make a beautiful quilt with some Fig Tree yardage I have been saving. Thanks for the chance to sew with some of your new, yummy fabrics.

  246. Kathy | 21st Feb 13

    I so want to see the blue Nantucket. It is beautiful. Can’t wait to see it in person. Oh, I do love the candy apple red too…
    So much to love…

  247. Kelly Wenhold | 21st Feb 13

    I want them all but my favorites are the greens and blues! Just yummy!

  248. Lyndsay G. | 21st Feb 13

    I love the Navy and would love to win some fabric to play with!

  249. Joanna | 21st Feb 13

    I love Nantucket and the small print floral 20202 15. Even in the block you made the blue looks crisp against the white. It’s so pretty.

  250. janita | 21st Feb 13

    I love the blues in your new collection avalon. I am green with envy with your friendship blocks. They are beautiful. I can’t wait to get started but as always I have to finish other long over due ufos πŸ™ Thank you for the block pattern. Have a wonderful day. I love my moda friends :)! janita

  251. Terry Schwandt | 21st Feb 13

    I love that sea blue background. It’s the best! Thanks for a chance to win!

  252. Karen O | 21st Feb 13

    I am most looking forward to that pop of Navy. I love all of your fabric lines, but this one is my favorite. Thank you for the great block.

  253. Kaaren | 21st Feb 13

    My favorite color is the robin’s egg blue followed closely by Nantucket. Heck, I love them all! How could one not? They are scrumptious.

    Thanks so much for the chance to win, both to you and Moda.

  254. vicki seals | 21st Feb 13

    I really like the Pistachio 2020511 & 20208. Thanks for the tips, the block, and the giveaway. vickise at gmail dot com

    LOve all the fabric but the one’s with the little cherry in any color background!

  256. Bonnie | 21st Feb 13

    I am waiting for the red cherry prints. They look so cute.

  257. Brenda Cornell | 21st Feb 13

    I always love your yellows and this Avalon is no exception. The Cherry Red is delicious, too.

  258. Cheryl B. | 21st Feb 13

    I actually got two charm packs of avalon already from stitchesngiggles.com and I love it especially the navy prints.

  259. Gabrielle Robles | 21st Feb 13

    Beautiful collection the two designs that are stand out are the 20205 love how it pops in candy apple red and the 20206 in the mimosa. Beautiful how you included both the two shades of blue nantucket and robins egg. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  260. cocoquilts | 21st Feb 13

    Being a lover of all things blue, I love the blue prints, especially the blue floral. I love the dark blue combined with the aqua in your quilt. I am so excited about this whole fabric line! I am smitten with your Sail Away quilt and will definitely need to make it! Thanks for sharing all of your tips to sew the blocks of the Friendship Quilt Along. You definetely have inspired me to get sewing!!

  261. Mara | 21st Feb 13

    Your new collection coming out is just great, I’m loving the Candy Apple Red.

  262. Erin F | 21st Feb 13

    I love the sailboat quilt and I adore all of the polka dot fabrics, especially the red!

  263. WandaFish | 21st Feb 13

    Love them all but the cherries on Robins Egg are just irresistable!
    Thanks for the giveaway πŸ™‚

  264. Kathie L | 21st Feb 13

    I like the 20204 print with the small flower in just about any color. I know I’ll use it in grey. Thanks for the great giveaway.

  265. Lesley | 21st Feb 13

    Love your fabric line, especially the blues! Thanks for a great block pattern and a chance to win!

  266. Molly Howsden | 21st Feb 13

    The BLUES! I am so excited about all the blues! Your fabrics are always beautiful and I am in love with the sailboat pattern.

  267. Josie | 21st Feb 13

    I love your quilt block! I’m a big fan of your Avalon line. It really caught my eye in the Mystery BOM 2013 at the Fat Quarter Shop. πŸ™‚ So…. I have to say I’m most looking forward to the Nantucket! It compliments so nicely. I love polka dots hands down, but I have to say I’m a little obsessed with your prints 20205 and 20206 in all the color-ways. Thank you for the chance to win!

  268. Kim S. | 21st Feb 13

    This is so hard. It’s a toss up between Pistachio and Candy Apple Red. These are 2 of my favorite colors.

  269. apple blossom | 21st Feb 13

    thanks for the chance to win so love to sew

  270. Olivia OSullivan | 21st Feb 13

    The Candy apple red is my favourite but all the fabrics gave a lovely vintage vibe!

  271. Kathy | 21st Feb 13

    Hey Joanna. I love the whole range. You are a fantastic designer. Best Wishes Kathy

  272. Kathy O in GA | 21st Feb 13

    You mean I have to choose a colorway??? Hard pressed, but I think it would have to be wicker, or maybe Nantucket…or Robin’s Egg? Love the large floral, and the dots, but really want them all!

  273. Carol Sc | 21st Feb 13

    With winter in full swing here, your fabrics remind me that Spring will come — maybe not as quickly as I would like. I am particularly fond of the Robin Egg stripe, but like all the fabrics and I’m enjoying this blog hop.

  274. sylviarobles@cfl.rr.com | 21st Feb 13

    Thank you for the tips. I have an addiction with your fabric.

  275. Barbara | 21st Feb 13

    I love all the small little prints and colors!
    Cute fabric line.

  276. Joyce Mitchell | 21st Feb 13

    Pistachio is my favorite – love the greens. Thanks for the block & the chance to win.

  277. Lisa E | 21st Feb 13

    I really like the Candy Apple Red color. Navy is a close 2nd. Thanks for the giveaway.

  278. Tracy | 21st Feb 13

    Y’all make it hard to just chose 1, kinda like a potato chip…can’t just have 1. The wicker greys w/the candy apple green & the pistachio. Have to say though that the 20205 print is lovely and I’ll be looking for that yardage for the stash!

  279. Sandy Spence | 21st Feb 13

    Joanna…your fabric is wonderful…I love it all..but I have a real weakness for polka dots. I would love to have it all tho πŸ™‚

  280. Melanie C | 21st Feb 13

    I love the red color…it’s perfect!

  281. Cheryl Barkdoll | 21st Feb 13

    I really like the blue and green prints since those afre my favorite colors. The sailboat quilt is very cute and perfect for a little boy. Your colors remind me of spring which I hope comes soon.

  282. Wendy | 21st Feb 13

    What a hard choice but my favourite would have to be 20203 17 Robins Nest.

  283. Julia | 21st Feb 13

    I love the Nanutucket! That blue is striking! Can’t wait to get my hands on Avalon!

  284. Carol C | 21st Feb 13

    My favourite fabric is the large floral in candy apple red, closely followed by the same pattern in grey.

  285. Sew Cindy | 21st Feb 13

    I truly enjoyed reading your post today, Joanna. Right now I’m into a “splash” of red and a “splash” of red there so I’d have to go with the red. BUT – tomorrow is another day so….

  286. Katie | 21st Feb 13

    I love the prints that look like a stencil. Will definitely stash that πŸ™‚ I really love the whole line. Thanks for the opportunity.

  287. Sandy A in St. Louis | 21st Feb 13

    Love the Robin’s egg blue, especially the large floral print (20200 17). Such a pretty collection!

  288. charlotte | 21st Feb 13

    I love the navy. It is so different for you. I love the way it stands out.

  289. Dania Kinney | 21st Feb 13

    I love the blue! It’s a unique color way and look forward to using it in my quilt!
    dwkinney@cox.net

  290. Claudia | 21st Feb 13

    I guess I’m easy. I love the Robin’s Egg solid blue. Beautiful. Thanks for the giveaway.

  291. Cindi P | 21st Feb 13

    Nantucket large floral without a doubt is my favorite!

  292. Jo Anne | 21st Feb 13

    Joanna, I love the Robin’s Egg. Great block.

  293. Julie | 21st Feb 13

    My favorite would be the small blue flower print–love those colors! Thanks for the chance to win!

  294. rosa | 21st Feb 13

    Love to see all your blocks together.I`m looking forward to pistachio,green is my fav color but love all the line.

  295. jane | 21st Feb 13

    The Robin’s Egg Blue in your background is so very pretty, but I also love the yellow Mimosa. Thanks so much!

  296. Darla | 21st Feb 13

    I like the red check pattern…

  297. jan | 21st Feb 13

    Avalon is a terrific collection! And, nobody does those soft, buttery, yellows better than you do. Really looking forward to those.

  298. Kristen Sanderson | 21st Feb 13

    I am loving the blues! Thanks so much for all the tips and the chance to win some of your beautiful Avalon!

  299. Jessica | 21st Feb 13

    To be honest I love all the colors and prints in your avalone line. I’m so excited to purchase some precuts and make something. I can tell I will have a hard time picking from the fabric for my borders. If I have to pick one color then it would be Nantucket It just pops in all the quilts you’ve posted.

  300. Theresa | 21st Feb 13

    My favorites are all the one with polka dots and the striped patterns. I just adore your ‘Sail Away’ quilt! Thanks for the chance to win!

  301. Nancy D | 21st Feb 13

    I really love them all, but the Robins Egg is so pretty. And I’m usually not a blue person! I’m excited about this quilt! I’m just now starting the hop and catching up. I haven’t been able to do any sewing in a while due to a foot injury. But now I’m in PT and even though I have a few things I should finish up first, I’m really liking the look of this quilt! And maybe I’ll win some yummy fabrics to celebrate a functioning foot πŸ™‚

  302. Erin @ Sew at Home Mummy | 21st Feb 13

    Your block is beautiful, and seeing them all together is just like eye candy!
    I think my favorite from Avalon would have to be 20200 14 in candy apple red – soooo delicious!!
    Thank you so much for sharing with us!!

  303. Colleen Taylor | 21st Feb 13

    My favorite color would be the pistachio. Your block is very nice. Thanks for sharing.

  304. Wendy | 21st Feb 13

    It’s hard to choose just one! I like the light blue and the polka dots. Thank you!

  305. Susie Brown | 21st Feb 13

    I love the polka dots in the collection! I want them in every color!

  306. chrisyanner@iowatelecom.net | 21st Feb 13

    If I must choose, the pistachio and mimosa…I love all of them though! The Sail Away quilt is now a “must do” for my sweet grandson! Thank you for doing this and for your quilting tips! Love your blog!

  307. Regina Lankford | 21st Feb 13

    I like all of the colors and prints but I love the what appears to be an aqua with the red. Those are my favorite colors.

  308. Anita | 21st Feb 13

    I am most looking forward to the aqua blue fabrics. Thank you for the chance to win! I love the Sail Away quilt too!

  309. Susan G. | 21st Feb 13

    The blues are my favorite, but I find it hard to choose when they are all beautiful.

  310. Britt G. | 21st Feb 13

    I asked my preschool daughter to pick her favorite fabric from the new line: she chose 20207 12 Mimosa. She really loved all the prints with the little white flowers in a color, but the mimosa color was her favorite. I always love seeing your new lines in the shops and can’t wait Avalon to come out as well. Your colors and prints are always so pretty for quilts and little girl clothes. Thanks for the giveaway chance.

  311. Jenelle Boxberger | 21st Feb 13

    I’m having a good time with this. I like Candy Apple Red .. the stripe one. THanks for the fun.

  312. Sara | 21st Feb 13

    The Pistachio 11 and the Candy Red Apple 14 are great! Thanks for the chance for any of the collections! Love them!

  313. DebrafromMD | 21st Feb 13

    I love all of the Candy Apple Red prints, but then I love red.

  314. Judith H | 21st Feb 13

    I simply love this fabric collection and am anxious to start a quilt. I love all the fabrics but kind of like the Nantucket Blues. They compliment all the other colors so perfectly.

  315. Ann in NC | 21st Feb 13

    I am drawn to the Robins Egg and Pistachio prints/colors! The lollypop pattern has really caught my eye! Great job with your blocks!

  316. liz | 21st Feb 13

    wicker gray is lovely

  317. katherine schaffer | 21st Feb 13

    the pistachio print (20205) that looks like it was stenciled. It’s drab and dreary outside my window and your print is just the breath of spring I’m longing for right now! BTW- many thanks for the extra tips!

  318. Jessica Kassebaum | 21st Feb 13

    Hooray for no templates! I think your block would be perfect for the California Girl fat quarter pack that has been sitting in my fabric stash since September. The Nantucket colorway in Avalon is my favorite, especially the print with white flowers all over it. I’m so ready for warmer weather and blooming flowers.

  319. stacey L | 21st Feb 13

    I’m loving the red and mustard yellow. Makes me smile. Your fabric is very cheery! πŸ™‚

  320. Diana | 21st Feb 13

    Love your fabric!! I have to admit, I am still working on a project with Dandelion Girl.
    The Pistachio in Avalon is gorgeous!

  321. Elise | 21st Feb 13

    What a delight to find your blog and your beautiful fabric lines! I like all of your colors, but the surprise of the navy fabrics are really fun and play off the other colors so well. Thank-you for your generosity in your “prizes”, the quilt will be beautiful made in Avalon fabrics!

  322. Briawna | 21st Feb 13

    It’s way too hard to pick one color from this beautiful line. Because I’m having a baby boy in May, I’m loving all the greens and blues I see in lots of Moda lines. So, just for that reason, I’m going to say that the pistachio and nantucket are at the top of the list…but I also love, love, love the candy apple red!

  323. Sandy R | 21st Feb 13

    Love your block and love your fabric. My favorite in the Avalon collection is the blue “Nantucket”. I have already made a table topper with Avalon and who knows what I will make next. Thanks for the giveaway!

  324. Jan | 21st Feb 13

    I really love that sailboat quilt! The Avalon collection is awesome and I’m particularly partial to the Pistachio prints. thanks!

  325. Denise | 21st Feb 13

    The whole line is so pretty, but I like the mimosa and daisy pieces best. πŸ™‚

  326. Kristen | 21st Feb 13

    Really looking forward to the dark blues! I can’t wait for this collection to be available! Thanks for the chance to win!

  327. Cathy K. | 21st Feb 13

    Well, that was a hard task! I really loves the florals, but I kept being drawn back to the Navy 20207 15 Nantucket. I sure like that color. It offers such a pop. Thank you so much for the chance at your giveaway and thank you for such an inspiring blog.

  328. Karen Dobbs | 21st Feb 13

    Oh, they’re all so pretty. But #20204 in Robin’s Egg calls out to me every time I see it. Thanks for showing us each of the blocks to date in the Avalon. It’s happy eye candy!

  329. Cheryl Keown | 21st Feb 13

    I love reds therefore my favorite is the Candy Apple Red. Love the blocks, can’t wait to get started on them.

  330. Leanne V | 21st Feb 13

    I love the Pistachio colour and also the new Nantucket colour

  331. Penny | 21st Feb 13

    I am visiting you for the first time via the Moda Hop. Your Avalon line is such a happy collection. I’d have trouble choosing one, but the robin’s Egg and Candy Apple call to me.

  332. Helen LeBrett | 21st Feb 13

    I’m so looking forward to the large rose in Nantuckett! I so love Navy, and am so glad to see it in your line: can’t wait!!!

  333. mary | 21st Feb 13

    Your fabric lines are always so pretty and fresh looking. I think the Candy Apple would have to be my favorite. Nice job!

  334. CJ | 21st Feb 13

    I LOVE the Candy Apple red prints, especially the one with the roses on it.

  335. Cheryl | 21st Feb 13

    I think the robins egg is the one I’m most excited to see, but the other colors are wonderful too!

  336. patsys45@att.net | 21st Feb 13

    The wicker gray and the candy apple red would have to be my favorites in your new collection. I love the Milky Way pattern.

  337. April Carter | 21st Feb 13

    I love the Nantucket blue print with the coral roses. I’ve been on a fabric diet lately, but I think I’m going to have to get some Avalon!

  338. Elaine | 21st Feb 13

    I am partial to the blues and I love the sailboat pattern. I was looking for something nautical, I guess that’s why I am loving that blue (adn the yellow too!)

  339. Susan Cargill | 21st Feb 13

    My fave is #20205 14, candy apple red and cream swirl. My head starts to explode with ideas using that fabric! I am going to have to order some immediately. Maybe I will wait and see if I am the lucky winner πŸ™‚ and then you can just ship it all. I have followed you forever and just love your designs. Thanks so much for a great blog post.

  340. Elaine | 21st Feb 13

    P.S. your blocks look great too and they showcase the collection really nicely, even the block designs look better (for ones I was afraid of LOL!)

  341. Lisa M. | 21st Feb 13

    I have a hard time buying red for my stash but I love the candy apple red, particularly 20205 which would be a great blender.

  342. Mary | 21st Feb 13

    I love the Robin’s Egg Blue–so fresh and pretty and it reminds me of my daughter. It’s her signature color and this could very well be the fabric to use for her wedding quilt.

  343. Patricia Nemeth | 21st Feb 13

    The tips you gave where very helpful, thank you. I struggle with this block more than any and will pass on a pattern where this block is primary. Looking forward to the colors Nantucket. I would like to use Nantucket, Candy Apple Red and a dash of Mimosa for a patriotic quilt.

  344. Beth | 21st Feb 13

    All of the colors work so well together. But I love the Candy Apple red large roses. You have motivated me to get started. Hope this line is in the stores soon! The pattern is pretty darn cut too!

  345. James | 21st Feb 13

    I like the large scale flower prints – Robins Egg or Wicker Grey. Thanks for the chance to win!

  346. Carol Y | 21st Feb 13

    I like 205 in pistachio and 202 in daisy. Very nice prints!

  347. jmniffer | 21st Feb 13

    I like the Candy Apple Red color the most, especially the viney type flowers. Thanks for the tip on how you cut away fabrics on the blocks you made. I will have to give that a try.

  348. Wendy | 21st Feb 13

    I am so excited to see blue! I’ve been mixing little bits of darker blue into other collections to balance out the pinks that have been so popular, and to have this one with the blue built in…well…I can’t wait!

  349. Linda W | 21st Feb 13

    Another gorgeous collection. I love 20205 13 Wicker Grey. It looks stenciled. I will be looking to see it in person.

  350. denise clason | 21st Feb 13

    Hi Joanna, Love the new sailboat pattern and the robins blue egg color!

  351. Ann Hudson | 21st Feb 13

    Wicker Grey would be a favorite! But I truly love them all!! Thank you for the lovely block pattern. Ani in NC

  352. BarbE | 21st Feb 13

    Love your fabrics with the Friendship Quilt Along blocks… I am excited to start the 2013Designer Mystery Quilt with your Avalon fabrics… I think I like the Nantucket blue with the Wicker Grey the best. But, the soft yellow of Mimosa makes me think of summertime… which we definitely need with the upcoming snowstorm. Thanks for sharing!

  353. Darlene | 21st Feb 13

    Darlene K. says she loves,loves the wonderful blues. They give these quilts their POP!!!. Joanna I just love all your fabrics, but those blues just grabbed me. Your designs are so fresh and breezy looking. This quilt we are doing in the Moda quilt along is just delightful. What fun!

  354. Barbara G | 21st Feb 13

    I am totally in love with this whole line – every single one knocks it out of the park! But I’m really loving the Robins Egg blue with tangerine in *20203 17 Robins Egg. Just fabulous!

  355. Trisch | 21st Feb 13

    All the colors and prints are so beautiful. The red and yellow prints are my favorite. Thanks for a chance to win.

  356. Beth Strand | 21st Feb 13

    I’d like that yummy yellow with the tiny bit of red! A girl just can’t have too much yellow, you know! pbstrand@msn.com

  357. Beth Strand | 21st Feb 13

    I love the yellow (I said that once but my comment disappeared, so forgive me if this shows up twice!)

  358. Annmarie | 21st Feb 13

    Avalon is wonderful – I had a hard time choosing! But Candy Apple Red is my favorite color in the line – I see aprons & pillowcases & a bright summer quilt when I look at the samples. Thanks for sharing your block.

  359. Candee Abraham | 21st Feb 13

    They all look so great together…candy apple red is my favorite,

  360. sueann wirick | 21st Feb 13

    Oh I think I’ve fallen for the reds…..# 20205 14 candy apple red YUM!

  361. Wendy | 21st Feb 13

  373. Carol Gregg | 21st Feb 13

    My favorite is the dark blue floral! Blue has always been my passion, and will draw me in like a moth to flame when pieced into a quilt.

  374. Gwen | 21st Feb 13

    I’m loving the cherry reds and the sandy khaki together!! They would look great on my couch!!

  375. Lona | 21st Feb 13

    Hi- I love your new fabric line. My stash is full of reproduction fabric. Your fabric is like a breath of fresh air.
    I really like the Mimosa -20202
    Thanks for a chance to win.

  376. Maryellen | 21st Feb 13

    This collection is so cute! I love Nantucket with the roses. Thanks for the designs, and the extra block hints. Great ideas!

  377. Rose | 21st Feb 13

    I adore the 3 Mimosa fabrics. Just beautiful.

  378. Katherine | 21st Feb 13

    I Love the blocks you have made in his fabric line. So pretty! I think I like the blue most of all!

  379. Lorraine | 21st Feb 13

    Since I’m a red girl, I love the Candy Apple Red, particularly the flower print 20202. The Nantucket, however, is a close second. Can’t wait until this fabric collection comes out! I’m even considering doing the Fat Quarter Shop Mystery Designer quilt this year, just because I love the Avalon fabric collection.

  380. Becke | 21st Feb 13

    Hello Joanna:
    I am looking forward to the dark blue prints. I like it that they are in a range from small to large prints. The dark blue reminds me of some of the vintage feedsack prints my grandmother used to have.
    I love all your prints because they have a nostalgic feeling and a respect for the past, but with a fresh look to them. My grandmother would have loved your colors!! She was a lover of pastels, just like me.
    Thanks so much. Becke

  381. Lynn D in NC | 21st Feb 13

  382. Karen Shackleford | 21st Feb 13

  383. Deb FitzGerald | 21st Feb 13

    This is a great line. Hard to choose my favorite, but the Candy Apple Red are the ones that I am leaning towrds (especially 20205 14), Your pattern is going to be so much fun, but I have to wait for the weekend to do a block or two. Thanks!!

  384. Christine Sherman | 21st Feb 13

  389. Tami | 21st Feb 13

    All the colors look wonderful together. My favorite is the Robins egg with the large flowers, so pretty. Once I decide on some fabric I will get started on making the friendship quilt. Yours are looking great, so inspiring.

  390. Lynn Dix | 21st Feb 13

  395. sandy | 21st Feb 13

    It all speaks of spring, but pistachio is my fav. Beautiful collection.

  396. Deborah Brown | 21st Feb 13

    I love the yellow background with the little red flowers. Thanks for the enthusiasm in your post!

  397. Brenda Sanders | 21st Feb 13

    Well, picking a favorite is kind of like picking your favorite child…I guess I can kind of whisper to each one that “you’re my favorite, but don’t tell your brother/sister, we don’t want to hurt their feelings”. So please whisper that to the #20202 12 Mimosa and the 20200 13 Wicker Gray. But please don’t let the other fabrics hear you!

  398. Lynn | 21st Feb 13

    So Hard because they are all so yummy. But Pistachio caught my eye first. Thanks for the giveaway. πŸ™‚

  399. Mary Ann | 21st Feb 13

  402. Ellen M. | 21st Feb 13

    I love 20205 11 in Pistachio for the print, but I think the pop of color the royal blue gives just makes the collection. Thanks for the inspiration!

  403. Brandi pond | 21st Feb 13

    Your quilt blocks are wonderful!!! I am loving the daisy love Love LoVE it!!!

  404. Lynn Kline | 21st Feb 13

  405. Jackie | 21st Feb 13

    Chris beresford

  411. Ruth Gregory | 21st Feb 13

    I love the robin’s egg fabrics–especially #20203 with #20199 coming in as a close second. The red flowers are gorgeous on that shade of blue . . . and the pistachio green prints are stunning as well. I enjoyed seeing all of your blocks–wish I had a day to sit and sew everyone of them. I would love to win the FQ’s. Thanks very much for the block design.

  412. LJ | 21st Feb 13

    Love your block and love Avalon, too. Thanks for the tips on your block – a real plus for those of us who are working on developing skills.

  413. Marie C | 21st Feb 13

    You of course are one of my favorite designers of fabric and patterns. The Avalon line is fun with its darker contrast colors, but I’m always so partial to your greens, so if I have to pick something, Pistachio 20202~11 is the one. Of course backgrounds are a biggie to choose so Daisy is adorable: 20203 ~ 16. Love how you’ve laid out all your blocks. Bravo for keeping up! Better than me. Your blog is one of the easiest to download and find things. Thanks for that!

  414. Anna D | 21st Feb 13

    What a choice from so many beautiful fabrics, but if given to pick an egg, I would choose #20203 17 Robin’s Egg. Love your fabrics & blog.

  415. patty Flynn | 21st Feb 13

    Love the background robin egg blue
    But I’m always a fan of cherries

  416. Lori R. | 21st Feb 13

    Love the Avalon line. It definitely reminds me of Avalon on Catalina Island. That was a really fun trip for our family!

  417. Kirsty | 21st Feb 13

    I am so excited for the blues! They are so vibrant and amazing. I just signed up for a block of the month club using Avalon πŸ™‚

  418. Jaylene | 21st Feb 13

  420. Laura | 21st Feb 13

    I love the blue with white polka dots.

  421. Carolyn B | 21st Feb 13

    Love the pop of navy! Can’t wait to see the floral! Thank you for the fun pattern and tips you shared! I am excited there are no templates! Looking forward to seeing all the blocks put together! :O)

  423. Andi | 21st Feb 13

    First of all……I love-love-love those sailboats!
    The Avalon I must get is the Wicker Grey – it really sets off all the other colors ….. although the Robins Egg is also calling. Thanks for the block pattern!

  424. Kristy | 21st Feb 13

    Red, red, red…….love it! I have been admiring the sailboat quilt..it is awesome! Going to finish my Milky Way first, and then move on.

    I’m excited to see that navy blue mixed in the Avalon line…can’t wait until it is for sale !! Thanks for the wonderful giveaways !

  426. Toni | 21st Feb 13

    Oh I am loving the Nantucket flowers. Too cute! Also those polka dots. I am a sucker for polka dots πŸ™‚

  427. Janice | 21st Feb 13

    Avalon is one of my favorite words, and Robin’s Egg blue is perfect for SPRING. Your sailboats look delightful against the soft blue.

  428. Jennifer | 21st Feb 13

    I’m loving the cherry print and the blue robin egg and the sailboats– such a great time for the sail away quilt as my son wants a ship quilt and that would work perfect!

  429. Anne Carpenter | 21st Feb 13

    I love the floral prints, especially in the Robin’s egg color.

  430. Lorrie McD. | 21st Feb 13

    I love the green fabrics, but the whole line looks great, along with that sailboat quilt!

  431. smcdaniel7986@gmail.com | 21st Feb 13

    Pick a favorite color?? Why such a hard question? πŸ™‚ I love the Mimosa and the Candy Apple Red (and the blues and greens and tans). Let’s face it – all of them! Thanks for sharing such a great new line. Keep creating.

    Stacy

  432. glenda | 21st Feb 13

    Your block are so lovely!
    Of your new fabric line – so tough to choose a favorite – I think I would maybe say the Candy apple red in the big floral print. They all make me excited though.

  433. Laurie in Utah | 21st Feb 13

    Blues…anything blue. Your fabrics are great.
    Thanks,
    Laurie in Utah

    Just like your other collections, Avalon is gorgeous. I really REALLY love Robin’s Egg with the beautiful roses.

  438. Susan | 21st Feb 13

    I love color. I just bought a pattern at quilt guild this evening for an “embroidery” quilt. It is featured in orange and yellow dot with a pop of green. I think it would be perfect in a beautiful red and navy with a pop of buttery yellow. I know whoever wins is in for a wonderful play time. It’s a beautiful line.

  439. Maureen Clifford | 21st Feb 13

    I absolutely love this line! Especially the Nantucket blues prints! It’s hard to find fabric that shade of blue. Thanks for the chance to win!

  440. Bev Johnson | 21st Feb 13

    LOVE LOVE the navy dots!

  441. KimR | 21st Feb 13

    I love your fabrics! Your buttery yellow is great, but I am really loving the navy this time! I also really like the print that is a scallop circle with a flower in the middle–I think it is in almost every color.

  442. d.fields@knology.net | 21st Feb 13

    I love the tiny dots and checks. Love both the red and the blue. These fabrics are all so special, it’s hard to pick a favorite!! Thfanks for the tips!

    Love your blog, Felicia

  450. Clara | 21st Feb 13

  452. Dianne | 21st Feb 13

    My favorite is Nantucket #20202. That print is so pretty. However, the Candy Apple Red #20200 is a very close second. That shade of red is beautiful. It was difficult to choose because all the colors are so pretty. I would love to make a quilt with your beautiful Avalon fabric.

  453. Julie C. | 21st Feb 13

    I have always loved the greens in your collections and the pistachio with the little roses is my favorite. Thanks for showing all of the blocks you’ve made so far. You have been very persuasive in making me want to join along!

  454. Sherry | 21st Feb 13

  470. Laurel | 22nd Feb 13

  510. Christy | 22nd Feb 13

    Nautical Navy – Ahoy!

  511. my Haven | 22nd Feb 13

    I’d say one of the dark blue is my favorite. Such nice contrasting color! Thanks for having the giveaway!

  512. Karen M. | 22nd Feb 13

    Pistachio has such a unique mix of fresh-vintage design and color! Love it! Wish my computer had the capability to let me touch the fabric! haha! Thank you for your daily creative inspirations and the opportunity to enter the drawing!

  513. Mary on Lake Pulaski | 22nd Feb 13

    The new line is beautiful and the Robin Egg Blue is perfect.

  514. Virginia Kopfinger | 22nd Feb 13

    I love all of them. Can’t make a decision right now.
    Thanks for the give away.

  515. bobbie | 22nd Feb 13

    Love the Robin’s Egg prints and the Wicker Gray. All the colors are fun and so peaceful. Looking forward to piecing your block.

  516. Diane | 22nd Feb 13

    I love the blue tiny floral, hmm but then I love the red little florals. But then creamy yellows are my absolute favorites. And the pistachio greens are so delicious. Bottom line I love them all and would love to make the friendship blocks out of them. Love love love. Thank you for giving me the chance to win! Yummy!

  517. Stephanie | 22nd Feb 13

    I especially love 20203 17 Robin’s Egg and 20205 11 Pistachio!!!
    Can’t wait until I can buy this line!
    Thank you!

  518. Julie Shoemaker | 22nd Feb 13

    This may very well be my favorite Fig Tree line. These colors just sing to me and I love the Mimosa #20203. Beautiful line, well done.

  519. Patricia Gourieux | 22nd Feb 13

    I like the entire collection, but the reds are my favorites. I’ve ordered the sailboat kit from your Twelve Days of Christmas. Looking forward to receiving it soon and seeing all the pretty fabrics in it.

  520. Marianne | 22nd Feb 13

    I love the large Daisy print and any of the yellows, so pretty!

  521. Marilyn Holley-Stupka | 22nd Feb 13

    I love the greys. They are such a gorgeous color in their own right but they also are so neutral and go with everything. I love the whole collection though. You have done such a great job on your blocks. They will make a stunning quilt. Your tips were also very helpful… Thanks

  522. Trelly | 22nd Feb 13

    Love the entire collection, as always, but this time I’ll choose the navy fabrics!!!!

  523. Tatkis | 22nd Feb 13

    I enjoyed your post so much! It’s full of colours and beautiful blocks!
    I think my favourite from Avalon would be 20207 13 Wicker Grey (and others from that line too!)
    Thanks for the giveaway.

    Hugs,
    Tatyana

  524. Elinborg D. LΓ‘r. | 22nd Feb 13

    Nantucker and Wicker gray are my favorit…love the blog hop and thanks for the giveaway

  525. Linda Vanderbaan | 22nd Feb 13

    I am loving the Pistachio!

  526. Shelley Parham | 22nd Feb 13

    I love the coral coloured prints the best, but they’re all gorgeous!

  527. Chiska | 22nd Feb 13

    I love the little tiny rose buds–especially the yellow (mimosa). Thanks for the tips!

  528. Barbara | 22nd Feb 13

    I am drawn to the gray. It is beautiful alone, but also plays well with others! Barbara

  529. Jane | 22nd Feb 13

    I love this line I really am drawn to the Candy Apple Red and the Sail Away quilt. This is a great blog hop with lovely patterns and ideas.

  530. Linda L | 22nd Feb 13

    I love the cherries on robins egg blue but my absolute favorites are all of the navys. They sure make the sail awat quilt pop. Avalon is a devine line!

  531. Ramona | 22nd Feb 13

    Choosing is tuff. I love how Avalon pulls so many colors and patterns together. If I had to pick a favorite, I would have to say the stencil designed fabric…particularly the pistachio. Beautiful job, ladies.

  532. Judy Matlock | 22nd Feb 13

    Robin’s Egg — by far, my fav. fav. fav. — there is nothing more colorful in the spring than a robin’s egg.

  533. Christi P. | 22nd Feb 13

    I love the Robin’s Egg color way. This quilt along looks like so much fun. I am going up to my sewing room to get started!

    cjpike at indiana dot edu

  534. Elin | 22nd Feb 13

    It is hard to choose, they are all great, but to mention one I’d say Robins Egg blue no 20203-17 … and I also love the Candy Apple Red no 20207-14 but I want to buy all the grey fabrics, they blend so well with most of your fabric lines and I have lots of leftovers from FigTreeClub projects.

  535. Linda in Maryville | 22nd Feb 13

    Oh, they are all lovely! I really like the Wicker Grey as it looks like it will go with tons of fabrics. Cannot wait to collect all of the blocks.

  536. Julie A. | 22nd Feb 13

    Love the 9″ blocks and also the Candy Apple Red color way. Thanks

  537. Sally from CA | 22nd Feb 13

    My favorite from the line is the red print as I love red so much!
    Thanks for the chance to win.

  538. ellen | 22nd Feb 13

    I just love your reds! Can’t wait to see Avalon in person.

  539. Taunja Kelvington | 22nd Feb 13

    The Avalon line is so pretty, it’s hard to pick a favorite. I love the Nantucket blue. But my favorite print is 20207 Mimosa. The tiny pink flowers, cream surrounds, and pale yellow background just make me happy.

  540. Kathy Okon | 22nd Feb 13

    I love the robins egg and the candy apple red. I love it that we are on the same wavelength. Every one of your ” fresh products ” make my heart race! Is this a disease? lol

  541. Jane elders | 22nd Feb 13

    I love all of them but think the navy blue print is a great addition!

  542. Connie Litfin | 22nd Feb 13

    It’s a beautiful line. I love the reds, but won’t say no to any of them. Really one of the best.
    Connie L.

  543. Synthia Noble | 22nd Feb 13

    Red and blue prints are my favorites. I’d sure love to win your fabric!!

  544. Pat King | 22nd Feb 13

    I am in love with all the colors but especially the Pistachio. They are beautiful. I love the sailboat quilt. My grandsons would love a quilt like that so may just have to be my next project. I love the quilt blocks. Thanks for this great give away. Hope I win but still love your products and buy them often.

  545. Connie Litfin | 22nd Feb 13

    I like them all but the reds are my favorite. I won’t say no to any of them. Beautiful line.
    Connie L

  546. Ellen Sickler | 22nd Feb 13

    There is something so calming about the pistachio and the print in 20205 is stunning. I can see my grandchildren cuddled up under a quilt using all of these beauties after a day on the beach at our home in Ocean City NJ – just a stones throw from our own Avalon!

  547. Christelle | 22nd Feb 13

    I love Robins Egg and the Wicker Grey, I hope you’ll have more Milky way kits made with Avalon… so nice!

  548. Jennifer Carrasco Duarte | 22nd Feb 13

    LOOK at all those responses already!

    I am on the pre order plan for two quilts with your Avalon fabric so if I happen to not win one of your offerings I know I will soon have some in my warm little hands.

    I do wish you could have heard the “Oooooo” and “Aaaaaaah” as I scrolled through the Avalon samples.

    Pista chio

  549. Terri | 22nd Feb 13

    Joanna: I’m always so, so happy you keep that glorious yellow in your collections. I’m not kidding, I have STACKS of those yellows and I am almost a hoarder about them. It just makes me happy to look at them and use them! Am I the only one who has those little pangs when I cut into my favorite Fig Tree yellows and creams?

  550. Christy | 22nd Feb 13

    I love the candy apple red with the floral and stripe. Thanks for the beautiful block!

  551. Sarah Johnson | 22nd Feb 13

    So many pretty fabrics…as usual! I loved the greens and pinks, but my favorite were the prints in wicker grrey.

  552. Tracey | 22nd Feb 13

    Oh what a lovely collection. I especially love the mimosa and robin’s egg ~ they make me think of sun dresses and doll quilts for my little granddaughters! I look forward to working many of the squares as well, perhaps using some for tote bags and backpacks!

  553. Gayle | 22nd Feb 13

    Oh my, the quilts are just lovely. I am drawn to the Robins Egg blue. The Pistachio is a close 2nd!

  554. Sandra S | 22nd Feb 13

    I love the Robins Egg blue, I love them all, I think this is my favorite group so far this spring. Thank you for the opportunity to enter in this giveaway. I
    think this will make a beautiful quilt.

  555. Denise | 22nd Feb 13

    I love the Robin’s Egg color way (especially the rose pattern). I love roses!!
    Keep up the good work! I love your fabric designs.

  556. Kelley Cook | 22nd Feb 13

    I love, love, love the little cherries on the green background!

  557. Shar F. | 22nd Feb 13

    I love all of that line of fabric. But if I have to pick one I would pick the Pistachio print with the pink flowers on it.

  558. Lisa in Texas | 22nd Feb 13

    Robin’s egg and wicker gray..I adore all of your fabric and have a dedicated “Fig Tree fabric” shelf in my sewing room. Thank you for the advice on the trimming…makes sense and will fix the problem I have run into when I trim both layers! Lisa in Texas

  559. holli smith | 22nd Feb 13

    Oooo… I think the Candy Apple floral teamed up with one of the Pistachios! So many choices, sew pretty!

  560. Andrea Hawkins | 22nd Feb 13

    I love the contrast of the navy fabric.

  561. Deleska Behunin | 22nd Feb 13

    Love, Love it all but if I have to choose. πŸ™‚ Then the Daisy #20203 and #20202 are probably my favorites!! GREAT COLORS!!

  562. Sonya | 22nd Feb 13

    I LOVE all of these fabrics, but the one that really, really spoke to me was #20200 Robin’s Egg. SO beautiful! I must have it!!!

  563. Kathy P. | 22nd Feb 13

    I am in love with both the Robin’s Egg and Candy Apple Red colorways. Don’t make me choose just one!

  564. Carrie P. | 22nd Feb 13

    gosh it is so hard to pick. I love them all but I especially like this pattern in all colors. this is my pick though:Ɋ *20203 17 Robins Egg

    thanks for the pattern and giveaway.

  565. Donna | 22nd Feb 13

    It is too hard to decide…..love them all but if I could only pick one it would be Pistachio since green is my favorite color. Love sewing with your fabrics -so soft and the colors are so beautiful. Thanks for the chance to win!

  566. Joan | 22nd Feb 13

    For me it is a toss up between Candy Apple Red and Nantucket. I am a ‘huge’ fan of Fig Tree and am currently awaiting the return of Pineapple & Fig from machine quilting by Diana, so excited for it!!

  567. WandaM | 22nd Feb 13

    Oh what fun and I love your tips! I think my favorite is the robins egg with the flowers!

  568. Ruby | 22nd Feb 13

    I can’t wait to get some Avalon! The cherry prints are my favorite!

  569. Michelle | 22nd Feb 13

    I can’t wait for the navy fabrics, all of them!!

  570. Lrogowski | 22nd Feb 13

    I love the entire Avalon line. All of your fabrics make my mouth water. All of the pistachio fabrics are beautiful along with the Robin’s egg blues. I feel like it is time for spring.

  571. Pat Conner | 22nd Feb 13

    The only “thing” you ever make hard for us is when you ask us to choose a favorite— I really love them all but must confess that I am drawn to All the Robin egg blues. Look forward to your quilts and Thank you for all. GREAT!!! PC

  572. LeAnne | 22nd Feb 13

    I love the red the best, but your blues are so wonderful, too. I love all your fabric and patterns!

  573. Sheila H | 22nd Feb 13

    Love the Pistachio prints! And here I thought they were “split-pea!!” What a GREAT collection!

  574. Karen Ely | 22nd Feb 13

    I’m a sucker for anything that is Robin Egg’s Blue so I love each one of those fabrics!

  575. Kim Dow | 22nd Feb 13

    The new blue, of course the aqua, and I love the soft red! Thanks for the great tips and the giveaway. I love this quilt along! I can actually keep up!

  576. Darla | 22nd Feb 13

    Oh, so hard to pick. I love the reds, yellows, and greens but if I’m forced to pick one it would definitely be the Candy Apple Red. Thanks for all the wonder quilt blocks and offering the give away.

  577. Sally | 22nd Feb 13

    This Spring collection is just the best to shake off the doldrums that seem to strike this time of year. My faves just have to be the reds and navys, and well, all of the collection of course. So to pick one, it will have to be the navy floral. Thanks for sharing your talent with us Joanna.

  578. Dana | 22nd Feb 13

    I love the Robin’s Egg and the tone on tone blender could find it’s way into almost any quilt I make, beautiful. Thanks.

  579. courtney Elwell | 22nd Feb 13

    I love the navy! Such a great contrast to the other colors! Thanks!

  580. Sarah | 22nd Feb 13

    I LOVE the robins egg colorway (my #1 favorite shade of blue)and look forward to using it in a springtime “cottage and birds” quilt I am designing because I am tired of the winter blahs!!

  581. B Trojcak | 22nd Feb 13

    I love all of the colors in Avalon line, so fresh, but I have to say…..NAVY!!!! Haven’t really seen it around in a while as far as color collections and I’m happy to see how it goes so well with the reds, greens and yellows!! Thanks so much for putting it in this new line. It’s certainly a hit with me. I’m having fun on the quilt a long hopping from blog to blog and can’t wait for a few days off to play in my sewing room.

  582. Jeannie D | 22nd Feb 13

    *20203 12 Mimosa is my favorite…I just love yellow, red and green together…my Kitchen colors!

    I’m looking forward to the dark blues fabrics!

  585. MonicaP | 22nd Feb 13

    I love the Robin’s Egg. It makes a great background for all the beautiful prints. I really adore the prints you chose for this line along with the colors. Also, I like how the Nantucket and the Candy Apple Red give this line energy. Thanks so much for the giveaway!

  586. Naomi Hicks | 22nd Feb 13

    I purchased the Sail Away pattern at the Ontario quilt show in January. I’m waiting for this collection to come out so I can get started on this adorable quilt. I love all the colors. They are so bright and cheerful.

  587. Cindy Farmer | 22nd Feb 13

  588. Flo@butterfly quilting | 22nd Feb 13

    I love all things Fig tree…so picking a fav is hard!! I am liking the navy in this line, especially the little dots.
    Thanks

  589. Mary | 22nd Feb 13

    I love all of the fabrics in the Avalon line. The Robin’s Egg fabrics are gorgeous. Such a beautiful blue, like the sky. I also love all of the colors in the square design, particularly the Candy Apple Red 202514.

  590. Judy Maggio | 22nd Feb 13

    I am looking forward to the red and navy small dots.

  591. quilt cookie | 22nd Feb 13

    wicker grey works with everything.

  592. Donna | 22nd Feb 13

    Oh they are all so beautiful! Always love your fabrics. Actually lean tword the Pistachio and Candy apple red. SO fun to have these quilt blocks and tips, thank you!!

  593. Darlene B | 22nd Feb 13

    I don’t have much in the way of yellows in my stash – I love the soft buttery yellows in your collection! All the blocks look so pretty!

  594. Jean | 22nd Feb 13

    Avalon is just gorgeous – each collection just gets better and better. If I had to pick it would be the blue.
    Love it.’Jean

  595. Sandy N | 22nd Feb 13

    Avalon is such a gorgeous collection! I have a hard time picking a favorite color but I think the Wicker Grey and the Candy Apple are my favorites. The large floral in every colorway is calling my name. I wasn’t aware of the hop until I got your blog update and after seeing your wonderful blocks I’ve decided I need to do them too. Thanks for the opportunity to win!=)

  596. Christine | 22nd Feb 13

    Hello Joanna,
    What a fun and creative sailboat quilt. Joanne, you are always so innovative in your designs and fabrics. You have a great eye for color. You definitely have a very recognizable color palette in Fig Tree. Thank you for inspiring all of us to “climb up that quilt mountain” and create with fabric.

  597. Robbin | 22nd Feb 13

    I’m in love with Nantucket. Love the blue, and the yellow!

  598. ~ Julie ~ | 22nd Feb 13

    Your blocks are darling! I love Avalon’s colors and prints! My favorite color is red, so I’ll have to go with the candy apple red being my favorite! Thanks for the opportunity to win such a great giveaway! Hugs! πŸ™‚

  599. Dawn | 22nd Feb 13

    I always love all your fabrics! Your greens are always my most favorite! But to go outside my box I think I would hae to pick the Candy Apple Red little flowers to be the one I”m looking forward to the most. That red is amazing (and I’m not a red girl normally) and those little flowers are just too cute!

  600. Linda Kay | 22nd Feb 13

    All the colors are great – as usual – but the blue really speaks to me.

  601. Carolyn | 22nd Feb 13

    I love the Candy Apple Red line. They are so happy and warm.

  602. Donna Harris | 22nd Feb 13

    I am so excited about the Avalon collection! The Nantucket and Robin’s Egg colors are so beautiful! The combination of colors is amazing. I have a lot of blue in my house and can’t wait to make a quilt with Avalon to use in my family room.

  603. Viviana | 22nd Feb 13

    My favorite is the Candy Apple. all the colors are so bright and perfect for your designs! I always wonder which came first, the collection or the patterns. fabulous job as usual

  604. Jennifer | 22nd Feb 13

    I can’t wait for your new collection! I’m especially loving those navy prints. Thanks for the chance to win.

  605. Tania Hansen | 22nd Feb 13

    When anyone says Navy Blue, I am all over it! It is my absolute favorite color to wear and I know I would look great wrapped up in a quilt with Navy. I also love the new Sail Away pattern as I am expecting my first grandchild, a boy! It would be perfect! Looking forward to picking up a layer cake at my favorite quilt stop.

    Tania

  606. Jill Neely | 22nd Feb 13

    I love the new blues that you have introduced to your Avalon line. They are very inspiring!

  607. Leisa DenBeste | 22nd Feb 13

    I am such a fan of yours!! What a beautiful fabric collection Avalon is. I just love dots and so happy that they are part of the collection. My two favorites are Mimosa and Candy Apple Red!! Can’t wait for the collection to come out!! Beautiful!!

  608. Iva | 22nd Feb 13

    Love the Candy Apple. And the Mimosa. And the Robin’s Egg…and Daisy…and Pistachio… Not to mention those Bella Solids! Your color choices are always so lovely and feminine. Thank you for the give-away. Good luck to all.

  609. Karen | 22nd Feb 13

    Beautiful, beautiful colors! Love them all but I have to say the Robin’s Egg are really speaking to me.

  610. Dyann | 22nd Feb 13

    All of the colors in Avalon compliment each other so well it is hard to single out just one color….the navy blue makes them pop so I guess I will have to say any of the navys are a favorite but that is not to say that they aren’t all FABULOUS because they are:) The sail boats sing to me…it is from my childhood…I still have a quilt that is now thread bare that has sail boats that I won’t throw away that my mother pieced and hand quilted. She passed away 2 years ago and when I see sail boats I think of her and that wonderful quilt.

  611. Christina | 22nd Feb 13

    I loooooooove 20206 (the stripe) in Robin’s Egg!

  612. fonda rush | 22nd Feb 13

    i am most looking forward to the little cherries: daisy 20204 16. it is so cute!

  613. Doris Brazelton | 22nd Feb 13

    I love all the fabrics but Victorian prints are my favorite so the Daisy collection is my pick. I have bought quilt kits from you in the past and they are so beautiful and the fabric is beautiful. Thanks for your website and company.
    Doris Brazelton
    Chattanooga, Tn.

  614. Rene B | 22nd Feb 13

    Oh, they are all so summery and beautiful. My favorite is the wicker gray. Can’t wait for it!

  615. Mylissa in Texas | 22nd Feb 13

    I love the “Daisey” color line. Yellow is my favorite color. I could eat the Pistachio one’s up too…..oh, and the reds! I LOVE them all! πŸ™‚

  616. Ellie | 22nd Feb 13

    Can’t wait to do the sail boats – and of course every piece of fabric you design is simply eatable!

  617. Grammi Sharon | 22nd Feb 13

    I really like all of the Avalon colors – but to pick one is the Cherry Apple Red – in all of the prints. Such a “cheery” line of fabrics.

  618. Pam | 22nd Feb 13

    Love the crisp colors, they are all my favorites!

  619. Rachel | 22nd Feb 13

    What an amazing collection! The colours are fantastic, especially the splashes of navy – I can’t wait to see the finished quilt (I think I’m going to take a little while longer than you!!) thank you for the chance to win such a wonderful prize!

  620. Jill R | 22nd Feb 13

    My choice is Floral Seaside Blooms Red – love the color, love the scale, love the flowers! I look forward to working with it.

  621. Heather | 22nd Feb 13

    Ocean Ocean Ocean! I have been in AGONY waiting for months for my fabric to arrive! So many projects planned for it! But please, the daisy large floral, so perfect for a baby girls quilt!

  622. Joanna | 22nd Feb 13

    Re: TypePad: [Fresh Figs] Heather submitted a comment on MODA Friendship Quilt Along

    No agony please! The fabric should be here sometime in March so your waiting is almost over!

    Joanna

  623. Kathy | 22nd Feb 13

    That’s a difficult decision. The entire fabric line looks so fresh and clean.I think my eye is drawn to the dark blue prints. I’m looking forward to getting some of this line of fabric. I hope the quilt shops in my area decide to carry it,

  624. Diane Wilkinson | 22nd Feb 13

    I love the Pistachio’s, and the one called Daisy in red but to me it looks like cherries and as a fun aside, I spend my summer on my boat in Cherry Cove on the west end of Catalina and I always take along a lot of quilting projects. I can hardly wait for your collection to come out so I can plan my summer project!!!
    I love your fabrics

  625. Jayme C | 22nd Feb 13

    I LOVE 20205 14 in Candy Apple Red. That design is so pretty! Thanks for the giveaway!!

  626. Gloria | 22nd Feb 13

    I love yellow and white, they just always remind me of a sunny summer day. My favorite piece is the 20206-12 Mimosa. Love your fabrics and quilts. Right now I’m making Front Porch Swings with Buttercream and Fig.

    Yumm!

    Gloria

  627. Beth I. | 22nd Feb 13

    I love the Mimosa prints! Well, all of them really but those are just really great. And seeing these blocks? Makes me want to start right now!

  628. Joan Trautwein | 22nd Feb 13

    I will take all of them but my favorites are the combination of the dark blue rose blossoms and the pistachio buds fabric.

  629. Denise Cabral | 22nd Feb 13

    Avalon is my middle name! ! I especially love the green with the white circle and little red circle in it. I must get this fabric cause of my middle name, so I hope I win! Thanks for the give away!

  630. Mary Deckert | 22nd Feb 13

    Hi Joanna! I love the navy pinpoint dot. It just makes me think of summer, which right now I need to believe is not too far away!

  631. Gloria B | 22nd Feb 13

    My favourite is No *20203 12 in the Mimosa colourway as it would work well in something I am planning.
    Thank you for the hints about the previous blocks too.

  632. Lee | 22nd Feb 13

    I love the Navy polka dot – I adore navy blue! Sweet boat pattern and fabric line! thank you!

  633. crspy16 | 22nd Feb 13

    Your Avalon colors are absolutely delicious, and I can’t wait to get some! It’s very difficult to pick just one, but I really like the large floral print in Robins Egg Blue. It looks so fresh and clean πŸ™‚

  634. Jordan Durbin | 22nd Feb 13

    I’m kinda excited about the yellow, which is unusual for me! And I always love your reds and neutrals and . . . well, pretty much everything you do! I am a HUGE sucker for red, though!

  635. AnnElizabeth | 22nd Feb 13

    I’m partial to the Navy floral and dot. They are so bright and cheery – just what one needs on a rainy winter’s day. Thanks for the tips! I’m looking forward to a fun sewfest this weekend.

  636. Ruth M. | 22nd Feb 13

    I Love ALL of your beautiful colors and flower prints. Your blog always makes me happy! And the sailboat pattern is wonderful. It makes you feel like it’s summer in February. Thanks for your creativity.

  637. Lynn M | 22nd Feb 13

    I love all of the Robin’s Egg fabrics. Although the entire line is gorgeous. Reminds me of spring as I watch the snow falling outside my office window.

  638. Brenda | 22nd Feb 13

    I Loved seeing all of the block you have been working on! I like the combination of the dark blue and red in this collection.

    Great job on another fabulous collection.

  639. Marguerite Guinn | 22nd Feb 13

    OOOOH – I love Robin’s Egg and Nantucket

  640. Deb | 22nd Feb 13

    I have to say that the Navy is my favorite, I’m looking forward to seeing the new collection.

  641. Lisa Z. | 22nd Feb 13

    I can’t wait to use your Robin’s Egg Blue. The Mimosa is right up there too as a favorite. Just love your color palette. So does my husband, which makes it easy to keep building up my stash.

  642. Four dogs and one quilter | 22nd Feb 13

    I love all the buttery yellows. Thanks for the tip on sewing the corner blocks, that always gives me trouble.

  643. carol | 22nd Feb 13

    love the shades of reds.

  644. Kim | 22nd Feb 13

    I absolutely love the Mimosa colors!!!! The whole collection is just gorgeous!!! Your blocks are stunning!!!!

  645. Kris | 22nd Feb 13

    All that lovely blue, the true, darker blue catches my eye – can’t wait to it in person.

  646. Gwen W | 22nd Feb 13

    I love all the prints together! Maybe my favorite is 20200 in robin’s egg blue or daisy. Fun stuff!

  647. Regina Ballard | 22nd Feb 13

    I just love the Robin’s Egg and the Cotton Candy Avalon. Do they sell these at Jo Ann Fabrics? I went looking today, but they are remodeling the store. Does anyone else know?

  648. Judy Lapak | 22nd Feb 13

    Love all the blues especially the Robin’s Egg which is definitely my favorite!

  649. Jennifer D | 22nd Feb 13

    While I LOVE all of the colors, I must say that Pistachio and Mimosa are the 2 that I’m looking forward to the most. I will admit, though, that I’ve never been disappointed with *any* of your fabrics, with the prints or colors! Thank you for this chance!

  650. Sharon | 22nd Feb 13

    Your fabrics are so refreshing, especially after a long winter! Love the Candy Apple Red!

  651. Bonnie Goodrich | 22nd Feb 13

    My favorite is Mimosa #20202-12. There is something so refreshing about yellow and red. The finished quilt will be gorgeous!!

  652. Kathy C in OR | 22nd Feb 13

    I am in love with the Candy Apple Red!

  653. Michelle | 22nd Feb 13

    20205 13 Wicker Grey is my favorite. I really like that shade of taupey-grey you use. I made a pretty heart shaped pillow last year with a floral with that similar background colour from your Strawberry Fields line- very pretty.
    Thanks for the giveaway.

  654. Linda James | 22nd Feb 13

    I love the pistachio, the red, the blue…I guess I love the whole collection. Living here in the snow of Montana, I can only dream of a beautiful sunny day through your fabrics.

  655. gretchen | 22nd Feb 13

    Love the new fabric. Blue and red are my two favorites.

  656. De | 22nd Feb 13

    I love the Avalon collection! The large floral in Robin’s Egg is divine!!

  657. Pam C | 22nd Feb 13

    Can I choose all of them? I like Mimosa, candy apple red, and robin egg blue especially.

  658. Linda Hoover | 22nd Feb 13

    Love, love, love the Pistachio because I love, love, love the color green. Looking forward to the sailboat quilt. It is beautiful.

  659. Loris Mills | 22nd Feb 13

    Well the whole Pistachio group is gorgeous…also love the Wicker Grey! Lollipops is on my to do list πŸ™‚
    Thank you for the sweet giveaway!

  660. Vickie Adkins | 22nd Feb 13

    It is sooo hard to decide, they are all beautiful. I believe I like the Robins egg 20200 & the Robins egg 20199. It is just too hard to separate the two. Maybe I’ll win one of the prizes. Wouldn’t that be great.

    Thanks for the chance.

  661. Cori | 22nd Feb 13

    I just love to quilts and fabrics

  662. Jan S. | 22nd Feb 13

  664. Jannette | 22nd Feb 13

    I’m in big trouble if I can choose only one fabric colour – ’cause I’m really excited about the Wicker Grey, Pistachio and Robin’s Egg!

  665. Sherill | 22nd Feb 13

    Soft yellow flowers! What a beautiful collection! Love the blocks!

  666. Tracy | 22nd Feb 13

    Candy apple red is my favorite. Or maybe grey? Pistachio perhaps? It’s so hard to choose just one.

  667. Ann O. | 22nd Feb 13

    I love the candy apple red. But the blues are gorgeous too!

  668. Debbie D | 22nd Feb 13

    Great fun Joanna. I’m really loving the Robin’s Egg colors right now. Looking forward to and downloading all of the blocks! Thanks for an awesome giveaway.

  669. Mary | 22nd Feb 13

    The nice thing about the way I make quilts is I don’t have to pick just one favorite! Avalon is a beautiful line and I can use them all if I want. Fun!

  670. Shauna | 22nd Feb 13

    This is such a pretty collection! I think the Nantucket small flower is my favorite, I could put it to some good use πŸ™‚

  671. Patty | 22nd Feb 13

    Love love the blue fabric. So vibrant

  672. Tessa Marie | 22nd Feb 13

    Choose one? Impossible! This is my favorite collection from you yet. I do love the little pink flowers on the robins egg background. I am buying some as soon as it becomes available!!

  673. Tania G. | 22nd Feb 13

    What a great collection! I’m very much a beginner and with all the fabulous fabrics to choose from, it’s hard to decide where to start! πŸ™‚
    I really like all the colors, but if I had to choose a favorite in this collection it would probably be the robin’s egg blue or the wicker grey. But they are all so very lovely.

  674. Amy | 22nd Feb 13

    I love the red prints. And the greens, blues, yellows, grays….creams….I love everything!!

  675. Marcia | 22nd Feb 13

    Oh I love the light blue and the soft buttery yellows. You ‘re new pattern shows off the colors nicely. Thank you.

  676. Joy | 22nd Feb 13

    What an adorable quilt! I love the look of the Avalon range too, especially looking forward to the robins egg prints, but they all look scrummy together! Love the reds too!

  677. Judy Blinkenberg | 22nd Feb 13

    I have all your lines. I think my favorite is Dandelion Girl. I will use it someday. This new line is wonderful with the blue, which is new for you, I believe. It’s going to be another favorite and I can hardly wait until it comes out. You and Amy are my favorite designers and I will buy all you ever make as long as I can! Thank you for the block. I plan to make this quilt when it’s all over.

  678. Judy | 22nd Feb 13

    Robin’s egg blue is my favorite!

  679. Bronwen | 22nd Feb 13

    If I absolutely have to chose, then the Robin’s Egg, but that darker blues are rather appealing too. Thanks for the blocks, I’ve been wondering what to do with a small fat eighth bundle for a while and now. Have my answer.

  680. Karen in Breezy Point | 22nd Feb 13

    My favorite would be the Nantucket colorway, but those little cherries (or are they apples?) are calling to me!

  681. Marsha | 22nd Feb 13

    Oh…I adore the candy apple red small floral! The entire line is wonderful! Thanks for all you contribute to the quilting world.

  703. donna | 22nd Feb 13

  705. Cathy Martin | 22nd Feb 13

  707. wendy martel | 22nd Feb 13

    Love the whole collection but the blues are calling my name….I can see using the blues as the focal point of a quilt and your sailboat pattern might well be the direction the wind will take me. I am waiting to get all block patterns before picking the fabric I will use and will be checking back on your progress as I may ground the sail boat temporarily and use your collection for FQ I have used your fabrics on several quilts…I just can not help but have a smile form on my face when I complete the quilt and want to show it to the world…..my quilting buddy first of course. Thanks for the opportunity to win

I can see some cute pillow cases/shams with ruffles from that fabric and white sheets whipping on the clothes line in spring. And I like Wicker Grey, then as we move past Spring I like the Navy and Red’s. It’s very seasonal here in Michigan no doubt about it. Thank you again for being so inspiring. xx

    I love small floral prints and ALL the colors are so pretty! You did it again with a wonderful line of fabric…Avalon… to make beautiful quilts. I do collect reds and greens…..

    I think the entire collection would make an awesome summer quilt. I’m particularly liking the red.

    Ah, you’ve done it again! The fresh colors are just what we’re needing here in snow country. The Candy Apple Red and Wicker Grey are my favorites. Thanks for the generous tips and the great patterns!

    I LOVE them all but I think my favorite color is the Robin’s egg. I’m hoping to repaint my bedroom in that color.

    I love the Pistachio! Especially the dot, which I can already tell I will be using to make yards and yards of binding with!

    ???? 20202 12 Mimosa is my fave ! But I very much love them all. Of course, I have never seen Fig Tree I don’t love !

    I love ALL the colorways, but if I have to choose, it would be the Robins Egg blue and the Pistachio is a very close 2nd! Thanks for sharing with us and for the chance to win !!

    These are all so beautiful it’s hard to choose one. I especially love the Nantucket and the Pistachio. They look stunning together. Thank you for sharing the blocks, tips and generous giveaway!

    Love the Nantucket polka dot. I could make a whole dress out of that fabric!

    I love all of your fabric lines. Every single one. In Avalon, my favorites are Robin’s Egg and Candy Apple Red. Yummy!

    I am really looking forward to the blue this time. :0 I always love your fabrics and the blue is a new twist! πŸ™‚

    I always love your fabrics…in Avalon, i love the light blue background with the roses…couldn’t see what the name was on that one. I also love all the light lime greens! Thanks for the giveaway. I really appreciated your hints on sewing the blocks. I have ‘liked’ you on FB — am relatively new to FB
