Fig Tree Harvest Update

I spent some time in my "studio" on Saturday, straightening up my supply closet by refolding fabric and generally giving the place a good cleaning.  It was more satifying than it sounds, especially now that I can look at those neat piles of fabric in the closet.  I didn't get a picture because the closet is so dark inside that photos don't turn out well. 

Once that was done, I started pulling fabric from my stash for my next project, Jubilee by The Pattern Basket.  This will be another in my series called Fig Tree Harvest, an effort to use all the Fig Tree Designs fabric I have accumulated.

Despite having made five quilts so far, the four shown below(clockwise:  Hello Sunshine, Summertime, Globe Trotting, and Keep Calm And Sew On), as well as the yet un-named LeMoyne Star quilt (I'm leaning towards It's Complicated), I still have loads of Fig Tree fabric left.

I started with three fat quarter bundles, a fat eighth bundle, two layer cakes, a partial jelly roll, a few odd fat quarters, and a few one-yard cuts.  I bought two charm packs for the spool quilt and added backgrounds.  Somehow, I still have loads of fabric left; the basket never empties!

My posts will likely be more sporadic over the next few weeks.  We are in the process of packing Miss Main Street's belongings in preparation for taking her to college.  We plan to work in some more parent-child and mother-daughter activities before we drop her off, though.  That, on top of work, will leave less time for quilting or blogging.  But I won't disappear entirely.


  1. I love this pattern! Can't wait to see your progress. Good luck with your daughter! I'm having a hard enough time sending mine to Kindergarten this year - I can't imagine college!

  2. They are all so pretty, and this new project will be, too.
    Enjoy this time with your daughter.

  3. It's amazing how many Figs you have to harvest. Enjoy some special time with your daughter.

  4. Jubilee is a beautiful pattern and the more
    Fig Tree the better.

  5. I really love your pattern choice!
    Your fabrics are beautiful too!
    Looking forward to seeing your progress on this pretty quilt.

  6. Enjoy the time you will spend with your daughter !!!
