I am a wife, mom, designer, daughter, sister. On any given day I might be tackling any one of those roles.
Interests: things i enjoy today include exploring little towns with my family, going to flea markets, gardening especially in the spring, taking photos of my kids, painting & sketching, pottery- both making it and buying it [my husband says i have an unnatural love of bowls!], reading sentimental books about life in small towns, putting my daughters hair in ponytails. if you ask me the same question tomorrow, i might have a diffrent list of answers. oh, yeah, i love a good glass of iced tea any time of the day!

It can be pieced or a mix of pieced and simple applique would be lovely too. We usually don't use all applique blocks in our samplers so that probably won't have a chance of winning. Although we do use all applique on our wool projects so on second thought... feel free to go for whichever you like!!

All the patterns for it would be over $100 so probably not a pattern that we can release!

The pattern has monthly instructions and includes 10 or more stand alone Fig Tree patterns. It would be over $100 for the instructions so I don’t think that’s possible. So sorry!

That is a fabric from Farmhouse so you can definitely do an online search for it and see if you get lucky. As for reds… most of my lines have reds in them! Joanna

We have added you. The list is quite long at this point but it never hurts to be on it. We always lose some people after we charge for the first box and they decline! Joanna

It was a part of MODA’s CROSSWEAVE collection and unfortunately I believe that it has been discontinued at this time. The color is called “pink yellow” and I think that it is still available online in various locations. Joanna

Thank you so much for all of your kind comments Lorraine! As for the names of the quilts in the stack… well there are quite a few but some of them include: Blossom in red and cream [from my WITH FABRIC THREAD book] Jelly and Jam [in red and green but only the red is showing I think] Kiss Me Snowflake Rose Lattice and a few more!
