Swatch Guesses & a Thank you or 2

Thank you to everyone for playing! For those of you who have not been following along on this crazy giveaway whirlwind of the Pillow Talk, I know you are tired of listening to me talk about it!

This is the end I promise!!

I have now read through every single comment and, as is always true with these things, I am so touched and humbled by all of you! You rock!

I love that so many of you remember your first Fig Tree project! Not sure I do LOL.

I love that so many of you have taken swatches of our fabrics to the paint store with you to match for one home project or another. I wish I could visit each of your homes!

I love that several of you are Polish, have best friends that are, or have been to Poland or a nearby Slavic country. Dzien Dobry and Dziekuje to all of you.

I love that many of you have such special stories about how you have used your Fig Tree fabric for a wedding present or a grandchild's quilt or to commemorate a lost loved one. I want you to know that I am honored by that in ways I can't even share.

I love that you are all flung far and wide and that I get to talk to people as far away as Norway, Russia, Japan, South Africa and Argentina. Every single continent! Anyone from Antarctica???


I love that so many of you tried to guess all the swatches on the pillow! Having to do that right now myself…. that was hard and I found myself worrying that I was going to get one wrong on my own pillow!! All those of you who guessed more than 5 correct collections have already been contacted and each one of you is being sent a sweet little mini 2" x 2" charm pack as we speak. Courtesy of the very generous MODA once again!  [And for those of you who have asked, yes, we will send them to you loyal international readers!]

    Oh, you warmed my heart today! I am also of Polish heritage but it has been many years since I’ve heard or read the language. Thank you so much for sharing!

    Amazing buttons on those pillows! And such a neat idea for those small scraps of fabric! “Buttercup” arrived at my local quilt shop, Front Porch Quilt Shoppe, in Ozark AL. I was there on Monday taking a skirt class, here comes the UPS driver bringing in boxes and boxes from MODA! “Buttercup” blue and the coral dots! Oh my gosh, just love it. Thank you so much for your fabrics! Congratulations to all your giveaway winners!!!!!!!

    Thanks so much for the opportunity to enter this wonderful give away – my sewing room wall colour was inspired by Dandelion Girl – still one of my all time favourites. Thanks so much!!! I’m still in shock that I actually won something!!

    Yay for all the winners, and how kind and generous you have been with your beautiful things!

    i don’t think i have any polish ancestry and i’ve yet to use my first fig tree fabrics for a project, but only because i just started sewing again last fall. however, your quilt patterns were among the first i purchased and i have put together the makings of a handful of projects featuring fig tree (on my to do list at my blog). i didn’t make the giveaway, but i’m happy for all those that did. your stunning photography and wonderful fabrics make this site an overwhelming source of beauty and inspiration. thank you, thank you, thank you. from a beginner who is looking forward to a long term relationship with this site and the fabulous fabrics and patterns it’s based around.

    That pillow is so wonderful! It’s like a summary of you creations so far- we want more designs from you! Fabric joy, i just love it!

    I have never seen your Fig and Plum line since I live in Canada and only have been on line for a couple of years. I just love it But I guess you can’t get it anymore. I would love to see a line in these colors again as they are my fav!!
