Fig tree favourites

 Do you have a favourite fabric designer?  I have more than one but my favourite right now is Fig Tree quilts. I love all their fabrics and I love how each  range goes with another. I am excited to show you my new floor cushions that I designed, yes all in fig tree fabrics. These were published in Patchwork & stitching magazine  Vol 16 No 10.



 I even made the cover so that is  even more special.
 They always do lovely photography.
 I am also making a few little stars for another project.
 Here is my newest finish. I actually started hand quilting this quilt but I didn't like it so I spent 2 nights unpicking it all, now its going to Sarah for her to work her magic on the long arm.


I bought this wooden wagon ages ago and had it outside ready to put some plants but I  thought it would look good inside  so I filled it up with some table runners. Doesn't it look sweet?

So thats what I have been up to lately. I hope you are having a lovely weekend.

I love Fig Tree patterns but there's a little too much yellow in her fabric ranges for my taste. Right now, 3 Sisters fabrics are my favourite but the past ranges which aren't available any more! Love your cushions - especially the basket block one. Terrific projects for a magazine. What a gorgeous quilt (more baskets yay!). Sarah will quilt it beautifully too. Pretty projects to brighten a greyish day in Sydney.

I forgot to mention how adorable your little wagon is. Perfect for your table runners!

Great finishes. I love your quilt wagon. So much prettier than it being outside. As for fabrics, it has to be either batiks or Moda marbles ( or similar). Alot of the fabric around today is a bit too twee and cutesy for me

All so pretty Leanne! Love the little wagon with the table runner display! I seemed to get a lot done, even though I started the weekend looking for my sew-jo!

Love the wagon - what a great way to store your table runners. Lovely cushions and basket quilt.

I really love your pillows, Leanne! How wonderful that it made the cover of the magazine!!! All of your creations are so pretty :) That wagon is darling too, I'd love to find something like that. My husband and I go antique hunting from time to time...

Your cushions are lovely, Leanne, as is your quilt top. I love the wagon with your runners in it.

I love fig tree quilts as well. I love the softness of the colors and the way all the lines work so well together. Even if I just buy a few half yards of one I know I can always pull from older lines to round it out. You are such a good finisher.

The wooden wagon is lovely with the tablerunners! I think you can almost start a shop with all your goodies Leanne :-)
