Bowl Inspirations
Sit Upons for Summer


Well, its officially the beginning of summer vacation around these here Fig parts and although the Mama has lots of deadlines, nobody else seems to! So, we have been doing a whole lot of this....


and a bit of this...



... how much do you think I paid them to pose for me like that LOL!! I am sure that one of them slugged the other right after this shot.




So we've been eating way more than our fair share of these...


Which really just makes me want to sew with that apricoty, orange, melon feeling color! Man, there's just nothing that beats it!!

A special thank you goes out to all of you who emailed, tweeted etc. about my dad. He is doing much better and we won't really know much more until the fall. But for a guy who just had major surgery, I'd say he looks pretty darn good, wouldn't you say?

What I am really supposed to be doing is working on book projects- have 4 projects in the works literally all over my floor as we speak-  and prepping for our upcoming photo shoot! I'll have to get back to you on how that all goes... 

On the storefront, our fabulous summer workers are back from college and we have been getting alot of projects underway. To start off with, we have started our limited series bundles. 

Up first, Cream Prints Bundle #1...




... these bundles have (7) 1/2 yd. cuts of various cream prints [3 1/2 yds. total] from Fig Tree lines and another MODA cream print thrown in here and there to complete the set. The prints are from various collections, including Fresh Cottons, Fig & Plum, Allspice Tapestry, Patisserie, etc. We have found that over the years the fabric that most folks, including stores, run out of first are all of the cream prints that can be used as backgrounds, fillers, sashings, stash builders etc.

We have been collecting them for some time and thought we would start sharing them with you in limited edition cream bundles. Each bundle #1, #2...etc. will have a different combination of prints... without any repeats just in case you want to collect them all!

Next up, Fig Tree Coordinating Solids...

These are our favorite MODA Bella Solids in colors that coordinate and blend very well with all of our collections. We have been sitting on these bolts since about January and just haven't had the time to get them cut up and bundled!

Here they finally are in all their  "sherberty" goodness [bundle includes snow, butterscotch, peach, aqua and clover].

Also on the kit front, all of our Kiss Me kits sold out almost as soon as they went up for presale a while back. Couldn't believe you guys. As of today, they have all shipped if your card was current. If not, you might wanna give us a call!

A few more goodies are on their way tomorrow so stay tuned. And there is a special coupon in the newsletter coming out on Friday so if you're not already signed up, you just might wanna.

Happy Beginning of Summer,



Those peaches look perfect! Wouldn't that color of peach look fantastic with the creams bundle? Delightful!

The colors in this post just leap off at me, I love them! I would so frame that picture of your boys - but, you may have to wait until they are older so they won't take it down. Its an awesome shot!
Looking into getting those bundles now - thank you!

Oh - and I'm so glad to hear your Dad is doing well!

What a wonderful idea! Love these bundles!

Your dad does look great. I hope all continues to go well. It is hard to see our loved ones not their best, isn't it? Look at all of this goodness. :)

Yes I believe that the peaches with the cream would be a PERFECT combination. Okay... The wheels are now spinning!!

Happy Summer,


I just love your fabrics. Every time you show a new one I think THAT is my very fav. Then you show something else and it changes lol. Love them all!

Thank goodness you blogged today! I have been thinking of your Dad and wondered what was happening. He looks fantastic and knowing what I have been going through with my own Dad. Happy Father's Day to him and Joanna, your photography is inspiring! Not to mention fabric! xo Pam in Chico

Cream, peach, apricot, butterscotch.... all wonderful colors. Yum! You take great pictures as well. Love your blog.

So glad your Dad is doing well now. It's difficult when a parent is ill. The pictures were great, know just what you mean about the slugging after the picture was taken, been there with my two boys. Bundles are scrumptious and I'll probably have to have them all!! Thanks.

So happy to see your Dad doing so well. Happy Father's Day to both he and Eric.

The kids are even more beautiful than the wonderful warm colors in the new bundles. I hope to have one of each.

Have a blessed fun weekend.

It appears that the cream bundles are gone...wanted to purchase some. When will they be back? They are beautiful! I was excited about the free pattern too.

The colors of your fabric are creamy and dreamy but they're sold out.
I'm a newbbie to your website...great blog...great website.
I'm going to look around my town for your fabrics.

Tried to order one of the bundle packages. Says they are "out of stock." When are we able to order them?

Love your fabric and your blog! Will the cream bundles be available soon? oh so dreamy!
