Fig Tree Harvest

Here you will find quilts made using my lavish stash of fabrics from the various lines by Fig Tree Designs for Moda.  When I started, my Fig Tree stash consisted of three fat quarter bundles (Buttercup, Butterscotch and Rose, and Fresh Cottons), a fat eighth bundle of Strawberry Fields, a layer cake and a few yard cuts from Mill House Inn, a charm pack of California Girl, and scraps from Patisserie and Fig & Plum from prior projects.  It didn't seem like that much at the start but it is yielding a lot of quilts.

Hello Sunshine, made in 2012, using a pattern called Changes from Cotton Charm Quilts.  Quilt is 78" square.

Keep Calm And Sew On, made from a California Girl charm pack (Fig Tree for Moda fabric line) using the pattern Spools by Thimble Blossoms. I resized the block to make it smaller in order to use the charm squares. The original pattern calls for a jelly roll.

Summertime, a Dresden Plate quilt made from a variety of Fig Tree fabrics.  (The sashing and binding is a pindot from the Bliss line by Bonnie and Camille for Moda.)   Summertime is 80" square. 

Globe Trotting was also made from a variety of Fig Tree fabrics.  I used the Many Trips Around the World block; my tutorial for the block is here.  This quilt is lap size, 60" square and was made in 2013.

It's Complicated, made in 2013.  I used a specialty ruler called Rapid Fire LeMoyne Star Ruler to make the LeMoyne Star blocks and designed a second pieced block.  Alternating the two blocks and setting them on point produced the look of sashing between the blocks.  Setting triangles out of the tone-on-tone background fabric form the border.  

Jubilee, made in 2014, using a pattern of the same name from The Pattern Basket.  Jubilee is about 90" square and is shown here on a queen size bed. 

Brownstone, made in 2014, using curved log cabin blocks (tutorial for this block on my blog here).  The blocks are 9" and the quilt is 72" square.  Dillie, our Corgi, insisted on being in the photo.

Pieceful, started in 2016 and finished in early 2018.  I chose this design to use up the scraps, mostly parts of fat quarters and jelly roll strips.  This quilt is 78" square, with each piece cut 2" to finish at 1.5".  Some strip piecing was involved to speed things along!


  1. Wow! Love all of your Fig Tree history! I've always liked the soft coloring of the FTQ fabric lines but hadn't stashed it much as I tend to primarily work in a shaded pallette and other projects always took priority. When Pat Sloan did Joanna's "Christmas Figs" pattern as a quilt along this year, I began accumulating bits and pieces of the lines, planning to do it as a fabric line sampler. It hasn't gotten to the top of the "To Do" priority list yet but seeing this is another nudge to try to move it along before the year ends!
