A Quick Do-Over

A little Sneak & a Peek



You know when you see fabric that just makes your heart skip a beat?  

That is what this is doing for me right now. I know, I know... part of me feels like I can't say that about my own work and I should wait for someone else to say it. But I can't!

I also have to admit that this is not always true of every collection or design I do. Sometimes I really like them and think they are good. Sometimes I love them. Sometimes I wish I could have added something more or expressed my vision a bit differently. Sometimes its a combo of all of the above.

But sometimes, I dream about them before they get here.  This is one of those times.

I have so many more pics to show you but I think it might be best to wait just a bit. It's called TAPESTRY. Hope it adds some loveliness to your day.


Stay tuned for another big reveal this week. We are just full of surprises around here.



OOh; what a sneak peek! Definitely liking it more than your last (forgot title; the line after Strawberry Fields). :D

Goodness! I think that I better get sewing so I can make room for some of that!

I love it!!!!

very pretty!

Job done: gorgeous...can't wait to see what you make with it! x

LOVE the colors - can't wait!

Ah, the caramels/butterscotch again. It is a different colour palette- I can't put my finger on exactly what is different, but it just is. I am a Fig Tree groupie. It looks great!

The colors are so warm and inviting! Love it!

Loving the pallette so much....the oranges, the sea green.....you have every right to feel wonderful about your new line! A huge congrats!


oooooh, pins and needles over here!

Love the colors, just beautiful can't wait to see them full out. Blessings Samdra

Ooohhh, they look beautiful! Can't wait to see the whole collection. :)

Beautiful Joanna -- can't wait to see those other pictures you have !!


Oh my, I love the butterscotch and plum! I think you have a Great collection here. Can't wait to see more!

I just love the colour palettes that you use!



Well, you wouldn't have had to wait long for someone to say how absolutely gorgeous these are! The colors all stacked up remind me of sorbet.

I am excited more than ever for this collection!

Love the plum-purples, then the golds -taupes-pale blue-red -the creams which bursts from California Girl. PS It's also 2012 intro says..

My scissors are sharpened- my pins are twinkling- my needles are trembling. Lets GO GIRL.........

Beautiful! It's just amazing how you continue to keep everything so fresh and lovely.

Love the mint, grey, red and cremes! When will these cuties hit the market?

Lovely, lovely, lovely!!!

Have a super great day!

Congratulations! You should be proud of yourself. Looks luscious! Can't wait to see it in person.

Great name, "Tapestry" and really exciting developments in colour and pattern that I feel sure will add rich new dimensions to my stash (already blessed with your past work) Thanks for this peek at the next delightful step with you.

It is beautiful! Love the colors


You know when my heart skips a beat? When I see a Fresh Figs email on my phone! It is the first one I open--- always beautiful and never a chore. Thanks Joanna. RebT

Oh, (gasp!) WOW!! loving the plum, and aqua, and caramel, and....

Love it! Now I need to start saving for it after I finish saving for my other favorite of yours - California Girl. So lovely - all of your fabrics are! :-)

Your sense of color and your color combinations are so lovely. And they are distinctive as yours. Keep up the great work.

I am working all the time to keep things fresh and different and yet still me... sometimes its really hard so thank you for noticing!


Oh I like it, big and dreamy!

Those red-oranges and aquas. Gotta get it. You are a fabric addicts best friend. And her bank accounts worst enemy! LOL

Can't wait to see more pics.

Ooooh...from what I can see, I'm in love with Tapestry! :-) And just so you know I absolutely love all of your collections. In fact, I JUST ordered a California Girl fat quarter bundle this morning!! Keep up the lovely work! ~ Mary Carole

That is my favorite comment so far!!

Thanks for making my day, Joanna

Yay! The colors look both new and familiar at the same time (how do you do that?!) And I'm happy that I got a phone call from your team today saying that the Boardwalk kits are shipping next week!

It's very beautiful. :)

OH NO!! Your fabric lines just keep getting better and better. This is definately my FAVORITE of all of your lines. Now I'm going to have to pinch my pennies so I can buy some of this. It is beautiful!!

Oh those creams...and is that a plum I see in the very bottom of the stack? very yummy!

Your sneak peek is a feast for the eyes - can't wait to see more.

When someone is as talented as you are Joanne, designing one amazing fabric collection after another, you have every right to toot your own horn!! Tapestry is very pretty and I cannot wait to see what you make with it!
