Fresh Cottons from Fig Tree… “Fresh Vintage” style

As most of you already know, I have “a thing” about Fig Tree.

I’ll admit, it took me a while to get to this point.  When I first started quilting, I was a little bit skittish.  Batiks one day, thirties prints the next.  I couldn’t quite figure out what I loved, what I liked, and what I didn’t.

Then, it hit me like a ton of bricks.  Or, more accurately, a great big stack of fabric bolts. Standing in Joanna Figueroa’s beautiful booth at Spring Quilt Market, I took it all in, and declared, “I am a Fig Tree girl.” 


In retrospect, I should have known.  We painted our entire house the color of milk chocolate,  (aka “Brown Suede” in the Fresh Cotton palette):


My closet is filled with pretty pinks, corals, butter yellows and assorted sage greens.

And, I’ve never met a quilt designed by Joanna Figueroa that I didn’t like.  Three of my favorites:


Madeline, A Girl in Paris, & French Kiss.

The next chapter in the “Fig Tree” storybook has arrived.
