Fig Tree Fall 2012




Just before market I was able to piece two quilts for my friend Joanna of Fig Tree & Company! I fell in love with both designs, and they were both beautifully quilted by Joanna's quilter Diana.



This quilt is Lollipops, and I was able to piece the Tapestry version. Joanna has a full post on this new pattern here.


I love the cross-hatch quilting on the center circles. This quilt was actually made from a jelly roll and was a fun pattern to make!


I have to say, though, that my favorite was this quilt...


Introducing Milky Way! I loved making the Americana version...you can see the other versions on Joanna's post here. I think I'm going to make a red and green version for myself for Christmas...but a bright version would be fun too...and the individual star blocks would make great table runners or pillows.


I really, really loved making this quilt; it's one of my all-time favorites.


And here it is again at market...next to my favorite sailboat quilt ever (another Fig Tree design!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Note: All photos on this post except for the last one were taken by Joanna Figueroa...thank you Joanna!

I have to say that This has been my favourite Booth/fabric line/quilts/ from all the pics I have seen of Market. Love that star...not sure if my piecing skills are up to it, but I sure would like to give it a try!

I made a beeline for the Cabbage Rose booth at Quilt Festival last week because I knew they'd have the new Fig Tree Quilts - and they did! They were just beautiful in person, and of course I bought them all to add to my collection :-) I've never seen the sailboat quilt before - is that something coming later?

Darlene said...

Beautiful quilts - Milky Way is a definite favorite. That's the cutest sailboat quilt I've ever seen.

Lizziebeth said...

Sherri I bought the Milky Way pattern at festival this weekend. What fabric did you use on this quilt?

Abby said...

These patterns are both great. I've already purchased them both! I love Milky Way - was it difficult to make? Did it go together fast?

Laura said...

I saw both of these in person!!

Kate Brown said...

You did a beautiful job on them. I saw them on Joannas web site and loved them!

Nanette Merrill said...

You always do such great market work. Love the americana feel.

I think I got to see your quilts at PIQF in Santa Clara a few weeks ago!!! Wish I knew then that you had made them: I would have looked at them more closely to appreciate them! They are lovely quilts: how long did it take you to make them (approximately)? that new line of Joanna's with the blues is going to be a favorite of mine!! Have a great week: love your posts and the great things that you show us!! :-)

Great quilts! I really like that Americana one. When she's done hanging it for display, let her know she can send it my way! Well done, Sherri!

Lovely quilts! I LOVE the Milky Way one. So so pretty! It's a great design and the fabric is beautiful.

CathyK said...

BEAUTIFUL quilts!!! My favorite has to be the Milky Way! Oh my! I wonder if a semi beginner such as myself could make that one! Thank you for sharing!

sincerely yours said...

Please tell us where we can find the pattern for the sailboat quilt! Please! It's absolutely adorable!

Jeanenne Nielsen said...

The quilts were beautiful. They all make me feel so inadequate. Oh well, I do the best I can. Thanks for inspiration.

Anita said...

I'm in love with Halloween Pops, but Milky Way in the Americana is too cute! May have to do that one too, along with those adorable sailboats! Great job piecing them :)

That dresden quilt is one of the coolest things I've ever seen!
