Patisserie has shipped… & it’s time for a giveaway!


I love those words… "has shipped"  or the words " is arriving on store shelves" or the phrase " has hit the streets"… need I say more?  There is something about those words that is exhilarating for me as a designer. It is the moment of truth. I have envisioned & designed it. The design team has executed it. The mills have created it. MODA has marketed and sold it. Stores have bought it. I have gushed about loving it. But until now, you haven't gotten to play with it! Until now….

And so here it is and hopefully at a store near you or if not certainly at an online store near your fingertips! 

Even as I was gushing some more about it here for this wonderful gal, I couldn't help but find myself back on those little criss crossing streets…


So here it is… just in case you don't already have your hands on some of these goodies we are having a little giveaway and a name contest all at once. 

We are giving away 1 Jelly Roll™, 1 Honey Bun™, 2 Turnovers™, a complete set of Patisserie patterns & a surprise gift for the winner[s] of the name contest. 

When you leave your comment, please share with me some possible names for my upcoming projects. I can't share the projects quite yet but you all did such a fabulous job with names last time we did this that I am confident you can come up with some again "project sight unseen". 

Use Patisserie as your inspiration and just go for it! Multiple entries for names are just fine but we will only count 1 towards the contest.

We will choose winners next wednesday…

These below are the gorgeous Patisserie pages from the infamous MODA Playbook given out at Market. Can't  you just feel yourself transported??


Thanks for playing along.
Talk to you soon.

    Congrats! How exciting.
    The Patisserie pages are beautiful.

    Okay, I’ll take a stab at this…

    Coulis – a simple, yet elegant enhancement to French pastries. I love the concept but not sure it would be mainstream enough?

    Éclair – a filled and/or glazed French puff pastry. Everyone knows what an Éclair is and it’s a beautiful word.

    Marjolaine – a buttercream, hazelnut and mocha French dessert with puff pastry. Another beautiful word to see and to say. Of the 3, I like this one.

    Have a great day!

  48. Jen | 6th Mar 09

    In French class, we would always use “Boulangerie patisserie” together. Boulangerie is really more of just a bakery where as patisserie is more like what it sounds like, a paistry shop, so if you want a complimentary name, that would be good. I always think of the museums and churches of Paris, not to mention some of the famous landmarks. I think one of the most fitting names might be Montmatre, the area in which Sacre Coeur sits, which as dozens of fabric stores all around. It’s heaven. If you’re looking for something more floral, there are tons of gardens all throughout the city. I list some names below.

    So my suggestions are:
    Fields of Lavender
    Churches: Sainte Chapelle, Notre Dame, Sacre Coeur
    Museumes: La Louvre, Le Centre Pompidou, Muse D’Orsay
    Arrondissements – how Paris is divided
    Momtmarte – fabric CITY!!!
    Gardens: Jardin des Tuileries, Jardin du Luxembourg, Jardin des Plantes…
    Les Bateau Mouche (literal translation, “Fly Boats”… they travel down La Scine)

  49. Jeannette | 6th Mar 09

    I am very patiently waiting for Patisserie to reach our shores in New Zealand. For names about
    Parisian Romance
    Raspberry Creams
    It is so good that we can look at and eat our fill of these beautiful fabrics and not gain any weight. Weight Watchers Delight

  50. jen | 6th Mar 09

    I just love this line. Scrumptious!

  51. Andrea | 6th Mar 09

    It all looks beautiful and I would love to win some.

    As far as naming future projects what about doing something with the word ‘edible?’ For example if there is a blue colorway you could call it ‘sky edibles’ or ‘blueberry edibles’ etc. Hope you get inspired from all the suggestions.

  52. Thimbleanna | 6th Mar 09

    Oooh yummy! I like Meringue. Chocolate Meringue. Meringe Truffle.

  53. Lynn | 6th Mar 09

    Joanna, thanks for letting us have our input. Any connection with this line is an honor. I love it! My suggestions: creme de le creme, Parisian cafe`, cafe de Paris For your new lines I still think France conjures up luxurious and fabulous thoughts, so how about: Belle Paris, Marseilles, or magnifique. As our one time French exchange student, Nathalie, always says to end correspondence, I kees (kiss) you.

  54. Gretchen | 6th Mar 09

    I positively LOVE this fabric line!!! It is scrumptious to say the least. Some ideas for names are:
    madeleines (lovely, light French cookies with a shell-like design)

    creme brulee (is their anything more light and decadent at the same time???)

    profiteroles au chocolat (maybe a play on jelly rolls?)

    crepe Suzette

  55. Gretchen | 6th Mar 09

    Thank you for letting us try to help! Paris…is my most favourite city ever, I am truly smitten! My suggestions are:

    “pain au chocolat” (how about a quilt in tones of chocolate, butter yellow and gold?)

    “macaroon” (or, as the French call them, macaron) all colours, all delightful! I am making a Schnibbles pattern out of Patisserie to put on the table where I keep my precious Laduree shopping bag – their macarons are to die for!

    Versailles – self explanatory, oui?

    la Louvre – sigh, sigh, sigh!

    Thank you for reaching right into my heart with your latest line and with your patterns!

  125. Amanda A | 6th Mar 09

    Marrons Glace
    Chocolate Souffle
    Vichyssoise-such a fun word!

  126. andi | 6th Mar 09

    My idea is to pick edible things whose colours blend with the fabric line. For eample:

    crème (cream)

    baie (berry)

    framboise (raspberry)

    amande (almond)

    café (coffee)

    pêche (peach)

    Hope I win!!

    savoir faire?

  147. anne | 7th Mar 09

    I love your fabrics. Patisserie is beautiful and all the patterns look great.
    I have always love the way the french say the word voila and the way they use it in many situations and I think it would be a good name.

  148. Julie | 7th Mar 09

    Beautiful as always…Sun-Washed Linen…Wine & Roses…Blossom…Creme Frache…Berry Tarts…maybe I’m not so good with the names:) but your fabric would have a happy home withe me!

  149. Lorien | 7th Mar 09

    This is such a beautiful line of fabrics! It has great potential for so many things: I can see a sweet little dress and pinafore set for my 2 girls, or cafe curtains, quilts galore!

    My contributions for names would be
    Cafe au lait
    chocolate eclair

    Wonderful job! I’m looking forward to see what else you do with this great fabric.

    Patisserie is really wonderful. Such lovely colours.

    I can come up with 2 possible names:

    Ahhhh….I haven’t been to France since 2001, but this line of fabric transported me back to my brief time in France.

    How about…


    I don’t speak French, but this seems perfectly CHARMING!

  153. Lori S. | 7th Mar 09

    A chocolate theme 🙂

  154. Amy Hoskins | 7th Mar 09

    Actually I think charmant means “charming” and charmante refers to a person…like “Prince Charmante”. Either way, I like it!

    Who wouldn’t like to find their own Prince Charmante in France, while eating something delicious!

  155. Amy Hoskins | 7th Mar 09

    Or name the line after you, or one of your children….

    Joanna Charmante

    Jo Charmante

    Josephina Chamante

    _______ Charmante

  160. JennyG | 7th Mar 09

    Someone mentioned tea and scones in their comment which got me reminiscing about high tea at the Empress Hotel in Victoria… with the yummy cucumber sandwiches and lemon curd and raisin scones… (I wish I knew French or Italian so I could come up with a cool name like Patisserie… )

    But my suggestion is Afternoon Tea

  161. Christina | 7th Mar 09

    Decadent Delight
    Decadently Delightful

  162. lnsokol | 7th Mar 09

  168. Meg99 | 7th Mar 09

    I can’t wait for “Patisserie” line. I think they are much different from recent lines such as Fig&Plum or Gypsy Rose.
    I would love to use pink,red and cream fabric in Patisserie which reminds me of berries and fresh cream.

    Some titles came up to me:
    C’est bon!
    C’est beau!
    C’est joli!

  169. Shirley LeDoux | 7th Mar 09

    One more….

    I’m way new to this but how about Creme Brulee or Bavarian Creme.

  173. Karen In Breezy Point | 7th Mar 09

    After reading some of the posts, I’m soooo hungry….and not a pastry in the house!! Well there are some waffles in the freezer, so my only name idea right now until I can satisfy my craving: Strawberry Whipped Cream Waffles. Maybe someone can translate it into French to fancy it up??!

  174. Mary Lou | 7th Mar 09

    Some of my favorite things in life- beautiful fabrics and anything coming from a bakery, especially if it also involves chocolate!

  182. Nancy | 7th Mar 09

    marscarpone or
    tiramisu or

    I guess that is about all I can come up with. But I love the fabric and would love to win some! Thanks for the giveaway.

  183. Nicole Willmore | 7th Mar 09

    Pecan Rolls (one of my favorite desserts)
    Blueberry french toast
    Walnut Blondies

  184. Janelle | 7th Mar 09

    Vanilla Puff
    Sugar Coated
    Sweet Dough
    Sweets on a Pedestal
    Vanilla Sugar
    Parisian Treat
    Bakers Rack
    Peach Delight

  185. Sandi Henderson | 7th Mar 09

    Joanna I LOVE this collection. Can we go to Paris sometime and hit those markets together? And then design collections from the same inspiration that would ultimately end up completely different? Sounds like fun to me.

    I’m sewing Eliza a dress this week out of some of your lovely fabric and it’s making me want to have lunch (or a trip to Paris) with you.

    Ta ta!

    Antique Shop
    Cozy Comfort

  190. Cindy C | 7th Mar 09

    The fabric is beautiful!! I want to buy several yards for backgrounds, I love the subtle color of several of the prints. My second passion to quilting is cooking and I love to bake. The two names that keep popping in my head are: Cinnamon Swirls and Pecan Sandies. They may not be so “French”, but tasty and should work with the colorways.

  191. Michelle | 7th Mar 09

    How about something with crepes? Or creme caramel? Profiteroles? Clafoutis? Bûche de Noël? Bordeaux, Champagne, Aubergines. And some of my favorite places in Paris were the gardens: the Tuileries and especially Jardin du Luxembourg.

  192. Julia | 7th Mar 09

    This my fist time here and lucky me, I get to enter a contest!! Hmmm….I don’t know any french, so I looked up the word delicious in French…delicieux. There’s an accent over the first “e”

  193. Stéphanie | 7th Mar 09

    Hi there!

    Congratulations on your lovely new fabric shipping. Thank you for hosting a naming contest, such fun…






  202. Nancy | 7th Mar 09

    Oh, such yummy desserts topping a gloriously beautiful fabric collection. I love the names used for all the precuts…all food related, all make me hungry (for food, fabric and sewing). Quilting and working with lovely fabrics (yes, I’m a fabric fondler, LOL) especially the precuts does a wonderful thing for me, it relaxes me and helps relieve some of the stresses of life. Having said that, I would have to suggest that very thing. Just one suggestion for me:
    Decontracte … (Relaxation)

  203. Tara | 7th Mar 09

    Amazing fabric! Here’s my suggestion – merveilleux (wonderful.)

    All of your fabric lines and patterns are so wonderful. Thank you for sharing your creative genius with us!. I’ve been reading through some of the comments and couldn’t begin to come up with names that compare to them. I’ll assume my creativity disappeared with the hour as we sprang ahead.

  214. Bronwyn | 7th Mar 09

    I love the colours of the fabrics. They remind me of long summer days with delicious ice-creams melting in your hands and the smells of baking wafting through the air. Will have to ask my local quilt shop about the fabrics.

    How about:

    Lemon Meringue Pie
    Chocolate Strawberry Creams
    Fruit Custards
    Baked Alaska
    Banana Split
    Ice Cream Sundaes

    I cannot look at this fabric with out thinking…”Fabric Treats” or “Plaisirs D’etoffe”

    Can’t wait to see all your new patterns!!!!!!!!!!!!! Keep up the great work!

  225. Laura Weaver | 8th Mar 09

  227. Nicole | 8th Mar 09

    With the gazillion comments that have already been made, I know my chances of winning are zero, but I just have to try! Patisserie is the prettiest fabric I have seen in ages (maybe since Gypsy Girl) and I would love to have it! I adore everything you come out with.

  228. natalie barton | 8th Mar 09

    this is my favourite line so far, but I love the colors of all the collections.

    Vintage Pastries is my choice

  229. Shirley LeDoux | 8th Mar 09

    I love the new line and the french theme.

    How about “Parisian Stars” or “La Reve de Paris” “Dreams of Paris” or “Parisian Dreams”?

  230. Nicole | 8th Mar 09

    I kept dreaming about your company last night…I take that as a good sign:) You’ve got some hard delicious decisions to make. My color combo from my dream is lime green and cream so I’m suggesting “Kiwi Creme Dream”…thanks for the inspiring fabric lines, patterns and overall joie de vie!(spelling??-you know what i mean:))

  234. Katie | 8th Mar 09

    I love it!

    As for names, I’m not great at coming up with them, but I like Framboise, Boulangerie, anything with Fraiche in it, Lavender, or simply Provence. All things that make me want to return to southern France. 🙂

  235. Katy | 8th Mar 09

    All this thinking about desserts makes me hungry! Wish there was a bakery near by! Not sure which direction you want to go in… food or a location, so I chose food.

  238. Rachel | 8th Mar 09

    I don’t know what looks better – the fabric or those yummy pastries. I do know that the fabric is calorie- and fat-free! Patisserie puts me in mind of eclairs, croissants, macarons, tartes, and rosettes, so maybe they are some ideas for project names.

  239. Merlyn | 8th Mar 09

    Love this fabrics – what about Parisian Spring!

  240. Karen Harris | 8th Mar 09

    Fun contest! My entry:

    I admit it!I am a fan of yours and your fabric collections!
    Patisserie has not arrived in Australia yet,but it will shortly(or that is what the shops that I have been bugging keep saying!!)
    As for names, keep it simple,international and fun.
    How about:

    French Truffles
    Parisian Star
    Parisian Delight
    Looking forward to Patisserie hitting our stores soon,
    Kerry Roe

  249. Betsy Pratt | 8th Mar 09

    Hi Joanna!!

    Still waiting for my lqs to get their order of Patisserie in. They are hoping for the wonderful cuts to arrive anyday, then the yardage. (I’ll take anything at this point!!)

    For names, I love the French/European connection you’ve had!! The colors are just yum, yum, yummy and instantly evoke a *creamy* feel. And it is reinforced when you feel the fabrics, too! How cool is that?

    How about:
    –Les Cremes et Fig (Figues)
    –Le Coeur de Paris – The Heart of Paris/My Heart is in Paris
    –Les Etoiles au Cremes – The Stars in Creams/
    –Les Couvertures de Patisserie – The Patisserie Quilts

    Looks like you’ve got lots of great choices so far!
    Betsy Pratt

  250. tammy nordwall | 8th Mar 09

    hello: it would be hard to top some of your inspired choices, but how about –

    sur la fleur

    i like jolie because that’s what your fabric is and it’s simple enough to remember and ask for in the quilt shops…

  251. Regina | 8th Mar 09

    Scrumptious -but my European food vocabulary is limited…

    How about “hands in the cookie jar”…

    In any language it is delicious!

  252. Lori | 8th Mar 09

    I didn’t read all the names so I’m sorry if any of these are duplicates. The names I read are great. I love your fabric lines and this one might just be my favorite (combining fabric with dessert-yummy). Thanks for the fun giveaway. 🙂

    douce gateau
    sweet cakes
    sweetie pie
    sweet offerings
    decadent desserts

  253. Michelle Amer | 8th Mar 09

    Greetings from Germany

  267. lisa | 9th Mar 09

    Your fabric lines are beautiful and serene. This is the first time I’ve “blogged” anything. How exciting! Your designs are inspiring. How does the name “Audrey” sound for Audrey Hepburn’s elegence and beauty? Your fabrics are elegant, beautiful, and graceful. Thank you for the opportunity for winning your wonderful fabric.

  268. Marta | 9th Mar 09

    How exciting to see this line in Spain but it will be very difficult….
    How about….
    Sweety Pie
    Petit Choux

    These 2 last words in Spanish….

  269. Audrey | 9th Mar 09

    My French is non-existent. 🙂 But I just love the word Raspberry. What about Raspberries and Cream or something with the word Crepes?
    What beautiful fabrics you have. Thank you for your giveaway.

  270. Amy Robertson | 9th Mar 09

    What delicious fabrics!! To me it screamed “luscious” and “indulgence” so my suggestion for the new projects would be Luscious Indulgence. You could break up the name to go with the color-ways. Like Chocolate indulgence or luscious lemon, or whatever.

    Thank you for the contest! I hope I win these!!!

  271. Pauline | 9th Mar 09

    Beautiful colors – love the line! I took French for just about forever and I can’t think of a thing…. but then again, not sure there is anything left to mention =)!

  272. Joanna | 9th Mar 09

    So many ideas – it’s hard to come up with something different! My first thought was something to do with mousse, then I also thought the word chiffon would be lovely too. Good luck – you have many many wonderful choices here!!

  273. carol | 9th Mar 09

    A new project…hmmm..girl you must never sleep!

    This is a beautiful line of colors and exactly what I have been looking for. Now I don’t have to look any further. I want to make a gift for my SIL when I travel to London to visit in May. These are her colors and right now my plans are for a table runner but that may change when I see the fabrics live.
    Creme Puffs

    Creme fraiche
    Sweet dreams

  279. Debbie Cameron | 9th Mar 09

    Wow Joanna,
    You must be dizzy with all the excitement surrounding this project. I only have a couple suggestions to throw into the mix, so forgive me for not reading them and possibly duplicating someone elses.

    I found Mille-feuille (which is a Napoleon) and your colors would be just perfect for this;

    also since your line is called Patisserie, how about Bon Appetit? I like that one the best. It will stick in everyone’s memory, I believe. So many choices–good luck.

  280. Amanda | 9th Mar 09

    I love this line! I just got my honey bun in the other day and it has made the most gorgeous bags. As for the new line

  285. Pat Ioveno | 9th Mar 09

    I LOVE this fabric line! Can’t wait to make something beautiful. My suggestion: “Sweet Creams” since I think anyone would have sweet dreams napping under a quilt made with these fabrics.

  286. Lisa G. | 9th Mar 09

    How about
    * tarte au fraises
    * tarte au framboise
    * millefeuille
    * choux avec chantilly

  296. lovetostitch | 9th Mar 09

    There are soooo many fabulous name suggestions and some I thought of, but were taken and then my thoughts expanded to what might be in that pattern set –
    Parisian Nights with some warm cuddly quilts; or Petite Fours with something for each season; or names of pastries, parfaits, and someone suggested tartes….making me have the munchies. I’m going to put the kettle on!!! The line is beautiful!!

  305. Carol Lewis | 9th Mar 09

    I left a comment the other day then I thought of a better name. How about Creme Brulee?

  306. Pam Knight | 9th Mar 09

    Your work is beautiful…can’t wait to see more!

  309. Cindy | 9th Mar 09

    Hi Joanna – I think I give this a try – first time for everything. Patisserie looks delicious. My suggestions is:
    The Bossuet – is composed of a thin cake base supporting a heart of citrus crème brûlee hidden in a forest berries mousse, glazed with a raspberry coulis surrounded by thin white chocolate wafers, and topped with fresh field berries;French pastry at its finest!

    Another one I quite like is Praline Riviera.

    Can hardly wait until the new Fresh Vintage to arrive in the mail!


  318. Mary Evans | 9th Mar 09

    Ooh La La! I just received my first pieces of this line today. It is scrumptious! I got the
    My Paris Traveler’s Bag kit.

    These are my suggestions:
    Petit Chou (little cabbage)
    Left Bank
    Choutte (means ‘cool’)
    Bonne Maman

  319. Sally Anne | 9th Mar 09

    Congratulations Joanna, the fabric line is just wonderful. Some potential project names could be Parisian Petit Fours, Strawberry (Framboise) Delight, Pear Lime Tart, Summer Sparkling Lemonade, Apricot Creme Anglaise, Mocha Creme Brulee. There are so many excellent posts already, it will be hard to choose.

  320. Cheryl | 9th Mar 09

    crème de beurre – butter cream

    chiffres d’affaires – turnovers

    gelée de fraises – strawberry jelly (also good for the reds)

  355. | 10th Mar 09

    I feel so behind on all this activity and enjoyment. This is the first time I have ever commented. I read a sign in Zook’s, Lancaster Pa that paraphrased said…..
    Nobody expect coin collectors to spend their coins, or stamp collectors to mail letters with their stamps….why does anyone expect that I make something with my fabric collection. My sister and I have been collecting charm packs from before they became popular. I just love touching them and looking at them, just plain enjoying them and the possibilities all those beautiful prints and colors and patterns inspire.

  356. Donna Courtney | 10th Mar 09

    I don’t know much French, but always liked the word “crepe”.

    These fabrics are beautiful…and the name, tres bon!

    I will have to list two of my all-time favorite patisserie treats: Petite Choux Chantilly and Petit Fours (any type).

    It definately reminds me of my time in France…sipping a cafe, enjoying a treat from the patisserie and enjoying the scences on the banks on the Seine…la joie de vivre!

  360. Robyn | 10th Mar 09

    Mary from Snohomish, Wa.

  366. Brenda | 10th Mar 09

    You are so creative! I love this line of fabric. The colors are rich, warm and so inviting. My mind is spinning with ideas of what I could make with these fabrics.
    I am afraid I do not remember much of the French I learned in school, but here are my ideas for names.
    Creme Brulee


  367. Sheila H. | 10th Mar 09

    What a lovely line of fabrics! My entries in the contest are below and my apologies if they have been submitted by someone already:

    Paris Paisley
    Fig Fondant

    Hope these entries revisit my previous win with Creme Fraiche in the last contest! Hope you find a place for that name in the future on one of your designs. Thanks very much,
    Sheila H.

  368. Ineke | 10th Mar 09

    Love the Patisserie range (and the French music) brings back memories of Paris.

    I was thinking coulis would be good to use as the different ingredients could describe colors. Such as coulis d’avocat, coulis de fraises, coulis de tomates, coulis d’amandes.

  369. Tina | 10th Mar 09

    BEAUTIFUL Fabrics! Great Patterns! So much fun just anticipating the arrival of an order. Thanks for all your inspiration!

  370. June Paterson | 10th Mar 09

    I love the new fabric line. It’s yummy it brings back memories of fresh baked caramel cinnamon rolls I watched my mother bake. She would take them out of the oven an pour fresh cream over the rolls with caramel oozing out of them. My suggestion is “Creme d’amande” or “Creme caramel”. Much success on your new line of fabric.

  371. Kim | 10th Mar 09

    Joanna, I love the Patisserie fabrics, they are all so yummy & I can’t wait to make a quilt with them.

    Chocolate Bliss,Orange Marmalade,
    in Espanol, Torta(pie), Postre (dessert), chocolata, budin (pudding), helado (ice cream)
    dulce de azúcar (fudge)

    Hi Joanna,

    I love the colors in the new line. I’m also a huge polka dot fan so I’m loving the combo of polka dots and flowers. I can’t wait to see it all in person. Reading these posts makes me want to go back to Paris.

    A “Slice” of Paris

    Postcards From Paris

    French Kisses

  384. Jeanne S | 10th Mar 09

    I love your fabric designs and would love to win. I don’t really know much French, but thinking of your enchantment with Paris, how about
    Parisienne Enchantment

  385. Pat | 10th Mar 09

    Another big hit and how about “just for fun” for the name.

  386. Monique | 10th Mar 09

    Joanna, just got your new book in the mail yesterday and I LOVE it!! The cover alone is wonderful…it just makes you want to jump right into reading the book from cover to cover (which I did last night:))Today I’m going to peruse it more slowly. I love your entire fabric line and whenever I visit a quilt shop it’s always the line I ask for. But once I get some of that yummy fabric I just want to let it sit on my shelves because it’s too pretty to cut up…silly me!
    Anyway, a suggestion for your next line…I read through some of the suggestions and they are all wonderful. Not sure if someone suggested this one:
    Papillion ( butterfly). Lots of colors, gossamer wings, airy. Could be associated to fabric?! Thanks for all the inspiration!

  387. Shelley | 10th Mar 09

    I would go with something sweet – playing off the sweetness of the patisserie, but shifting into the sweetness of love… I’m thinking “little kisses” or “many kisses” – but translate to the most beautiful language on Earth… 😉

    Thanks for offering such an amazing giveaway!

  388. Denise | 10th Mar 09

    What a gorgeous collection, for a name
    Sweet Treat!

  389. Alanna | 10th Mar 09

    I just stumbled on your blog from Simplify (Camille’s blog)! Everything is delicious!

    Cremes Brulees
    Petits Fours

  390. Carol Callahan | 10th Mar 09

    As always I love your lines of fabric. The patterns, the colors are excellent! The delicate details of each is breathtaking.
    So with that the name I offer is Saoirse…pronounced Seer-sha. It is actually Galic and means freedom. It is to be my granddaughters name(she is due any day)..and I think it is beautiful, just as she will be, and would be the perfect name for a new line.

  391. Judy | 10th Mar 09

    I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of your new line to hit my quilt shop.

    I like the name a la mode.

  392. Julie Kato | 10th Mar 09

    I was at Prairie Queen Saturday and saw the new fabric. I also saw Keiko Clark there, I should follow her and buy everything she buys. Maybe I will bake a Brioche today.

  393. Jean Llewellyn | 10th Mar 09

    There is only one word for the new Patisserie fabric collection – FABULEUX!

    A few words to add to an already eclectic collection:

    Amelie rose
    Marquise au chocolat
    Joconde (Almond sponge)

    Regardless of the names, the mouthwatering colors and patterns will speak for themselves and turn every project into a truly luscious confection.

  394. Deb Scheibel | 10th Mar 09

    my ideas are:
    at last
    from my dreams
    dusky nights
    summer breeze
    warm embraces

  395. sumomuvino | 10th Mar 09

    Yum. Please pick me!

    en rougissant (blushing)
    Bouchée (mouthfull)
    Cassis (blackcurrant)
    and for fun…le creme de je t’aime

    okay, i’m ravenous (ravineux)

  396. sugar | 10th Mar 09

    Patisserie looks good enough to eat!

    As far as the naming contest, how about:

    Petit four



    Bises (pronounced ‘bees’ and means kisses)?

  397. Lizzie Swinney | 10th Mar 09

    NOt being French and not understandingthe language I find it easier to read and remember names like, Just deserts.

  398. Diane Wilkinson | 10th Mar 09

    Everyone has added so many great ideas I am out of creativity. However I suggest easy french words for those who do not speak French such as
    2. framboise
    3. galette
    because they all evoke something very tasty!

  399. Bev DeRoo | 10th Mar 09

    Congratulations, you’ve done it again! Patisserie is absolutely scrumptious. I’m looking forward to creating something delicious with it. I just love to look at the fabric and dream!!! Thanks.

    – Paris Sunset
    – Totally Paris
    – Patisserie Passion

  400. Candace | 10th Mar 09

    Fantastic fabrics! And the photos are wonderful!
    How about “Cabaret” for a new fabric line?

  401. Karen Kunz | 10th Mar 09

    I also love this line!! Makes the designing juices flow! For names how about a new line of: My Cheri Amour! Definitely a must for babies or the little girl in all of us.

    Can’t wait to see it!

  402. Kay | 10th Mar 09

    Days in Turin’
    Turin’ Vineyard
    I have some of Patisserie on it’s way to me.
    I just love the fabric and patterns you share with us.Just finished some star quilts out of a combination of your fabrics. That is what makes working with your fabric so nice the different lines can be used with each other.

  403. Kay | 10th Mar 09

    One more name. Apia n Way. kws

  404. Annette Capovilla Hall | 10th Mar 09

    I can’t get enough of Fig Tree fabrics!!! Here are a few of my ideas for new fabric lines….

    Charme de Provence
    Parisian Bonbons
    Confiscerie de Provence

    Au revoir,

  405. Damary Fletcher | 10th Mar 09

    Well, I just started quilting a couple of years ago, am all crazy about your fabrics and every time I go back to Mexico I teach my cousins and friends on what is quilt since we don’t do that. I bring your fabrics and all the magazines where I see designs I like.
    You were asking for a name for one of your lines. I think for about blue / gray colors a cool name for me will be:: SUEÑOS (dreams) or in tones of green it feels like ESPERANZA (hope)

  406. Rebecca Brammell | 10th Mar 09

    No longer claiming fluency, your contest has started my rusty brain whirring…in high school I had the opportunity to visit France on two different occasions as well as stay with a family in Belgium! First time was a school group, second I stayed with a French family and loved the name of their town – I am sure there are many towns that have great names but I always remembered this one:


    Then there was Nice where I studied for a few weeks. Couldn’t get over those small rock beaches as opposed to sand…not very comfy! So perhaps a line called Nice and pieces in the collection with names such as:

    *le soleil

    How about my favourite song at the time by Etienne Daho and some of the lines in the song, “Tombe Pour La France”

    *la vie
    *N’importe quoi
    *Toute va bien

    And random thoughts:

    *one slice or two
    *noix de cocoa
    *noisette (hazelnut and tres yummy as Nutella)
    *pomplemousse (love that word!)
    *mignon (cute used to describe babies/toddlers)
    *timide(I become this when I try to speak French!)
    *names from a French classic novel
    *names of herbs: basil, thyme, dill, oregano, rosemary

    I’d better stop now! Probably won’t sleep tonite with all the words popping into my head!

    Thanks for your great fabric lines and patterns, website, and friendliness!


  407. Natalie | 10th Mar 09

    Ooo La La

  408. silvana | 10th Mar 09

    Jacaranda; Ti amo; Amame

  409. Ruth Bernardi | 10th Mar 09

    I just love your new designs – as always!!

    Suggestion: “Savoir-vivre” because it means style of living as well as being able to shape your life like a piece of art which could be our personal way to cope with a/the crises.

  410. Jenny Reese | 10th Mar 09

    I love the beautiful hues in your new fabrics!!With four young children I can’t sew fast enough! My one suggestion would be to go back to your peasant roots and pick up the “flavor” and colors of RATATOUILLE.

  411. Carol Sheffer | 10th Mar 09

    Congratulations on your new line! As always, I am not disappointed. Great work; just love it.
    As I am a country gal, how about as names

  433. Lynne Anderson | 10th Mar 09

    Love your newest range – as I do all your ranges.

    My choice for a name would be La Vie en Rose (did I spell that correctly?_

    Just as that is the melody of Paris, Patisserie is a melody of beautiful fabrics.

  434. Carol | 10th Mar 09

    A truly gorgeous line and I’m looking forward to the patterns for it! My project name suggestions are “elan” (distinctive flair or style) and “entremets” (desserts).

  435. Claudia | 10th Mar 09

    I have to admit I love all Fig Tree fabrics but Patisserie is absolutly beautiful.

    Titles? Well, Patisserie reminds me of blonds, so how about – “Blonds really are more fun.”

  436. Sara | 10th Mar 09

    Lovely line of fabrics!

    coeur a la creme

    cafe au creme Quebec

    Lots and Lots of great ideas. The new line of fabrics is just beautiful. My friend and I are known at our local quilt shop as the ones who came in once a week on our lunch-break just to “feel some fabric”. I can’t wait to feel Patisserie! How about:


  439. Peg Younger | 10th Mar 09

    I don’t know French, but suggestions:

  445. Wendy Altman | 10th Mar 09

    I bought Patisserie from an online retailer about a month ago, and absolutely love the color palette! This beautiful collection inspired me to make travel plans for Paris – I leave on March 25! The arrondisements, each with their own special boulangeries and patisseries, provoke the imagination -of cookies (madeleine), high tea at Laduree, caramel mousse, and of course, macaroons in every possible color! Bon Appetit, mon cherie!

  446. Ruby&me | 10th Mar 09

    Another stunning fabric line. What will I make with this one?
    What about “Kiss me over the garden gate”

  458. Jessica | 10th Mar 09

    When I look at bolts of fabric it makes me feel so content. Other times I get that feeling is when I’m walking in a cherry orchard that’s in bloom (the colors, and smell) so maybe-

    Orchard Blooms
    Indian Summer
    Desert Rose

    I’m not good at names, but I always love your fabric lines.

  459. colleen sandbach | 10th Mar 09

    what a wonderful collection! For us with mature eyes the already BAKED Collections are so easy to use!Although with the wonderful names like honey buns and turnovers our minds can easily wander to eating!I don’t know many quilters who don’t enjoy both and are good at both. How about TWICE BAKED? or Fritters? Red CAKE? Dutch Chocolate? Dinette Cake.(my grandmother’s favorite)Struedal?thanks for the chance!

  484. Paula | 11th Mar 09

    Patisserie looks very enticing and I would love to make something using it for some friends who have recently bought an old mill in France.

    But to be constructive, can I persuade the designers to invent a successor to Urban Indigo? It must be my favourite fabirc line ever. The quilt I made from it excites me every time I look at it still (and I know what is wrong with my construction and quilting even iof others don’t).

    So how about Chambray and Champagne?
    Adventures in Distressed Denim?
    Blue and better?

    But please do return to a similar palette!

  485. Gail Williams | 11th Mar 09

    How about:

    petit gâteau


  486. tina | 11th Mar 09

    YUM the fabrics are gorgeous….. the search is ON! 🙂

    posie parfumé?
    en fleur?
    magnifique motif?

    Whatever the name, I know the end result will be remarkable!

  487. Kristin Madden | 11th Mar 09

    Hi Joanna,
    Your new line is so fabulous! ‘Sugar Threads’ or ‘Warm Buttered Toast’ are my votes for your contest because your fabrics are so yummy, that I could just eat them up!! Why is it that your fabrics always bring me to thoughts of food…mmm?!!! ha! I’m working on a king sized quilt for our bed with a little bit from Urban Indigo, Dandelion Girl and Allspice Tapestry…and wouldn’t Patisserie be a great addition!! Oh and my other suggestion for a future pattern, etc…is ‘Beaches and Dream’ (or dreams if you will)…your fabrics are so soft, romantic and they always transport me to somewhere I want to go (like the beach)! Thanks for the beautiful fabrics, you are inspiring!


  488. Barbara K | 11th Mar 09

    Hope I am not too late for the giveaway. How about chanson or musette, two styles of french music long associated with the cafe scene. Your fabrics are beautiful.
