It’s Strawberry Season!

Not the edible kind – the fabric kind!  Fields of strawberries – Strawberry Fields Revisited.  By that Figgy girl, Joanna.

Frivol-Quilt

I love these colors – and the names.  Strawberry, Grass, Pond, Stone, Blush, Butter and Daisy.  With Figgy fabrics, it’s always about the color.  Even when Joanna changes – or tweaks – her color palette a bit, the mix and feel of the colors is still distinctive.

The quilt above is Vintage – it’s Frivols No. 6.  I wanted this quilt to be light and airy, and okay, I wanted to use as many of the fabrics as I possible could, including the strawberries for the border.  The finished quilt measures 45″ x 54″.

Note:  After learning that a handful of customers had received rolls of pre-cut squares that were a bit scant, we decided to re-work the cutting to make the pieces a bit smaller and allow a little leeway.  The artwork and text for the tin had already been sent for manufacturing so it could not be changed.  However, the pattern has the correct sizes and instructions, and we apologize for the discrepancy.  It just needed to be done.

Frivol-Contents

This is what’s in the tin – except for the mini-charms.  (Those are mine!)  Joanna designed the quilt label – it’s even better in person.  And I love the quote Joanna chose – Calvin & Hobbes.  (One of my favorite cartoon strips ever.)

There are two different blocks in our quilt – a “chunky Churn Dash” and a Sashed Nine-Patch block.  Or four.  This is one of the Frivols quilts where you have some choices.

There are also some extra squares in this Frivol, meaning that you can make a bigger quilt or some pillows or a bag or something else.  I suppose you could make one of Joanna’s patternssome of them are kind of gorgeous.

Laundry Baskets.  Star-Crossed Mini – again… I really liked this one.  A typical lovely Figgy vignette.  Mini Laundry Baskets.

The last thing I really want to mention about a collection like Strawberry Fields Revisited – and really, with all of Joanna’s collections – is how eminently stash-able” they are.  The reds and greens from Joanna’s collections make beautiful Christmas quilts, and the majority of her fabrics blend beautifully together.

Figgy Christmas

These are blocks in Joanna’s Christmas Mystery Block-of-the-Month – these are my blocks.  :::snort:::  (I wish… I’m a bit behind on this one.)

This is the assortment she’s pulled for her upcoming Figgy Mystery Block-of-the-Month – they’re primarily from Farmhouse and Strawberry Fields Revisited, with a few other fabrics mixed in.

Spring Bundle

It’s not at all frivolous to stash some – a lot – of these fabrics.

Have a wonderful weekend – we’re back on Monday with a row-a-long… blog hop… something fun.

  1. “Pretty, oh so pretty, all these quilts are so pretty to see…”. Lovers of “old movies” are, hopefully, singing along in their heads at the moment…

    The blocks, the fabrics and the quilts are wonderful – feels like a sneak preview of spring!!!!

    What a delightful Friday morning surprise!!!

    Looking forward to the Monday post…

    There’s something about Fig Tree fabrics; every single photo pictured in this blog is just beautiful.

    Can’t wait to get my BOM kit. Aldo looking forward to Joanna’s wool BOM. Will you be doing her Wool BOM? So excited to start All In A Row on Monday. I know I have over extended my time with three or could it be four projects and it’s only the 15th day into the new year lol. But I’m going to try. Thank you for another inspirational posting.

      I’m not signed up for the wool BOM but I do have a little bit of the Weekes Farmhouse wool so I’m going to make some of the blocks. I’m going to live vicariously on that one. 🙂

      Are you getting the Christmas BOM or the “regular” Mystery Sampler? I missed out of the regular one – again – so I’m stashing fabric and I’m trying to figure out how to convince Joanna to make room. Bribery might be involved. (Other than this blog post, of course. LOL)

    Love Fig Tree and that’s Strawberry Fields revisit is so great! I still have some of the ‘original’ one and can’t wait to see how both will look together. And the best is that my most favorite Fig Tree print is back (the blooms 20261) and I hope Joanna will add this print in the future into other collections (I think it was also in Mill House Inn). Would love to have this one in aqua and in navy and in black and … perhaps you can ask her … please?:-)

  6. WOW!! *****LOVE!!****

    How does one get more information about your block of the month project on this site? I love the colors but don’t know how big the quilt would be or the cost, etc.
