Designer Select: Fig Tree Quilts



The Fat Quarter Shop and Joanna Figueroa of Fig Tree Quilts have teamed up to present you with a Fat Quarter Shop Exclusive! Joanna has specially selected 12 prints from her Butterscotch & Roses collection along with 3 coordinating Bella Solids for this special bundle you will only find at the Fat Quarter Shop.




Q: What inspired you to pick the colors and designs in your Designer Select Fat Quarter Bundle?
A: I started off by trying to choose a good combination of prints for the bundle that would allow you to have enough variety to complete an interesting quilt or home decorating project. Once I felt like I had a good group to work with, then I just sought out all of my favorites! I had to try hard not to make the whole grouping caramels and chocolate browns! I also love the idea of adding in the Bella Solids as I think they really “punch” up the other colors in this collection.




Q: What are 3 words you would choose to describe this collection, not including any of the fabric designs!
A:
1. Rich & Elegant
2. A Harvest Table
3. Wine Country in the Fall

*2 Truths and a Lie*
1. I am dying to have a chicken coop in my backyard.
2. I speak three languages, one of them being French.
3. I only own one sewing machine, an old Bernina.

One of the 3 statements is false. Comment on this post telling me which statement you think is false. Answer correctly and you have a chance to win Fig Tree Quilts’ Designer Select Fat Quarter Bundle!


You have exactly one week from the post date.
Good Luck!

Sharon Pernes said...

I am going to guess #3

Lisa @ Sixmunchkin Stitching said...

I'm going to guess that number 2 is the lie. Such beautiful fabrics.

Kelsey said...

1. I am dying to have a chicken coop in my backyard.?

Sounds like a lot of work. :P

Dee said...

Actually, #3 seems the least plausible. Is that even possible?

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

I'm guessing #1.

krisgray said...

I'll guess #2.

Angie @ Summerfield Quilts said...

I'm guessing #1 I'm dying to have a chicken coop in my backyard. Beautiful fabrics.

I think #1 is a lie

Joan said...

I think # 3 is false. Beautiful fabric, Joanna! Thank you for the generous giveaway.

Sandra said...

I'm going to be different and go for #2! Gorgeous giveaway thank you.

I'm guessing that #1 is a lie. #3 sounds just crazy enough to be true!!

Beautiful fabrics, by the way!!

C. said...

#1!

Stitched With Prayer said...

I'm also guessing #3...probably wrong, completely a guess. Hugs...

Denise :) said...

I only have one machine ... and I speak three languages, including French ... I'm guessing #1 is the lie! Thank you! :)

Carol said...

I'm thinking the false statement is #1, the chicken coop. Lots are guess #3 but it's not unusual for a quilter/designer to have just one sewing machine.

Sandie ~call me crazy said...

Hmmm, that is a tough one. I think I'll go with #3, although any could be plausible fibs! Thanks for the fun!

SewHappyGeek said...

I'm guessing number 2 is the lie. Because I only own one sewing machine and I'm dying to have chickens in my back garden!

Rachel said...

What beautiful fabrics!

I pick #3 as the "lie". Can't be true, no way ;)

junglewife said...

My guess is #1 :-)

Tina O. said...

I think it is #3. Who only has 1 sewing machine? :)

Kelli said...

I would guess 3 although I wouldn't be surprised. Some people are very loyal to one machine. I only have one that works right now... ;)

Kasey said...

I'm guessing #2. I don't know why. Love the fabrics, though!

Jamie Lee said...

Wow, this is a real toughie! I'm going to guess #2.

Katie said...

I'm going to guess that #2 is wrong. Thanks!

Miki Willa said...

My guess is #1. I only had my one old Bernina for a very long time and did just fine with it.

Quilter in the Gap said...

Seems like I remember reading something about a chicken coop on her blog, so I think #1 is true. I also think I remember her speaking in French, so I think I am going to go with #3 is false.

Cathy said...

I think number 3 is false!

Flo @ Butterfly Quilting said...

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this fabric.....please,please please pick me!! I would have to guess #2!

Snoodles said...

Number 1 must be true...I've seen the cutest tea towel pattern on her blog, and it was a chicken! I would not be surprised if she can speak several languages. I think number three must be the fib!!

Natalya Hoak said...

I'm guessing #3. I'm in love with this collection and have so many ideas for it!

Babs Williams said...

I think it is #1. Love Fig Tree fabrics!

Threads by Terry said...

I think #3 is wrong.. I bet she has more then one machine.. hehe
Love this new line from Fig

AnnieK said...

I'm picking 3 as the fib. Joanna sounds cool enough to be multi-lingual and raise her own chickens. :-)

Robin C said...

I have to say #3 as I thinkshe would have more than one machine

Staci said...

This fabric is so beautiful. She is one of my very favorite designers. I think number 3 is the lie.

Heather said...

Just guessing but I think perhaps #1 is the lie.

Ina said...

I'm guessing #1 chicken coop is a lie! ;0

Cathy said...

The lie is #3 about owning just one sewing machine.

LymeRicky said...

I'm guessing it's #2.

Andrea said...

my guess is #3!

Melanie said...

I'm guessing #3 is the lie. Love the new fabrics!

pcflamingo said...

I'm guessing #3 is a big fib. I'm just an ordinary person, not a fabric designer and I have more than one sewing machine! Thanks for the chance to win :D

Emilie said...

I am guessing number 2 is false!

PB in Texas said...

I am sure that #3 I only own one sewing machine, an old Bernina has got to be false. Beautiful fabrics!

Anonymous said...

I think #3 is not true, that I only own one machine. What a beautiful line of fabric!
Cindy V. in Illinois

TinksDaughter said...

I follow your blog so I know #2 is true and I'm pretty sure #1 is also. So that leaves #3 as the lie. I think!

Mom2RyandSis said...

Beautiful fabric!! I'll guess #3 is false. Thanks

Linda V said...

I pick number 1 as a lie, although I once raised chickens and LOVED those fresh eggs!! LOVE the fabric combinations!!

Judith said...

I am guessing #3 because I know she loves chickens since she shared her chicken applique, and I wouldn't be surprised that such a talented young woman knows multiple languages. Love her fabrics!

twelve30 said...

I'm ging to guess #3. Thanks for the giveaway.
twelve30{at}gmail{dot}com

Kira said...

Not everyone has more than one machine, but I'd wager she has that old Bernina and then something else too, especially if she does her own free motion quilting.

karenfae said...

#1 is the lie - I am guessing
Karen

Carol said...

Just a guess but I think # 3 is false.

Abby said...

mamabug said...

I'm guessing you do not know 3 languages including French :__) k.bugbee dot att.net

MoeWest said...

I'm guessing that #1 is a lie.

Pamela said...

I think number one must be the lie, at least I don't think I'd want a chicken coop!

luvtoquilt said...

I love all of the Fig Tree fabrics -- they are so beautiful and elegant. To me, it just doesn't fit that the designer would be dying to have a chicken coop in her backyard! I'd have to say that #1 is false.

Lisa said...

Three languages, yes, I believe that! The one sewing machine? Hmmm, the chickens? That's tough. I know she enjoys gardening and I can see the chickens fitting into that scheme, so I am going to say that she has more than one sewing machine. I believe #3 is false. As always, gorgeous Fig Tree fabrics! Thanks for a chance to win the special bundle selected by Joanna!

Sarah said...

I'm going to guess #2 is the lie-the other two are just quirky enough to be true! :) This bundle is so pretty and "grown up"...I love it!

Cynthia said...

I will guess that number 3 is a lie.the fabric bundle is gorgeous!

Anonymous said...

I'm guessing #3, everyone has more than 1 machine!!

Deane said...

I think #3, we all have more than 1 machine!

Glenys said...

Maybe no #2

bruinbr said...

I think #3 is false! Thanks for the great giveaway!

Christine M said...

I think number could be the lie!

meg99 said...

I think #2 is true,false may be either #1 or #3...

I'd say #1.

Rachelle said...

I'm thinking number 3 is a lie; only beginners seem to have one machine; the rest of us have at least 2, not counting overlockers and coverhem

Eva said...

Yo creo que la respuesta falsa es la 1.
Besos

Tina said...

I think that number 3 is false! Keeping my fingers crossed.....!

Anonymous said...

These are beautiful fabrics. I am guessing that 3 would be the fib. Thanks so much for this giveaway.
Christine M. luv2sew50@yahoo.com

Aletta said...

lilsnailquilts said...

hmmmmm......I think #2 is false

Annaleena said...

I'm guessing that number 3 is false. Thanks for the chance.

Binks said...

man... i'll say number 3 is false.
i love the fabric line. it's so cozy and sweet.

Melissa said...

I will guess that # 1 is not true. Chickens are a lot of work and caring for them would take time away from sewing:) Loving the new line of fabrics- of course:)

Sunnybec said...

My guess is number 2 is the lie. Linda

gill said...

I'll guess#1

charlotte said...

my guess is number 2. Thanks. The fabrics are beautiful.

Lisa Marie said...

I'll guess that #1 is the lie.

Vickie said...

I'm guessing number 2! I do love Butterscotch and Roses! It's gorgeous!

Anita said...

Is the lie #3? =)

Mhairi said...

All of them seem possible but surely only one machine is hard to live with. I have 5 and I love them all so I am guessing that #3 is a lie.
I love this fabric range.

SewSuzie said...

It must be number 3 - even I as an amateur have 2.

Baskets Of Quilts said...

I'll guess #3 is the lie! Hope i win thanks!

Gene Black said...

Surely #3 is the lie. If not she should use the profits from this fabric line to buy a nice new machine.

QuiltSue said...

I'm guessing #2 is false. I think Joanna speaks more than 3 languages.

Chiska said...

I think #3 is false.

drmithome said...

My guess is no. 3.

Donna said...

I love Fig Tree fabric! I'm sure that #1 is false.

Annemariesquilt said...

I realy, realy love this Fig Tree collection and I would love to have som to play with !!! ;-))

Liz said...

Great bundle! My guess is #2.

Annemariesquilt said...

Sorry I forgot to answer the question... I guess number 3 is false ;-))
I realy, realy love this Fig Tree collection and I would love to have som to play with !!! ;-))

PrincessTanya said...

I think number 2 is the lie.

Jansie said...

I think #1 is false. Beautiful collection~!~

Татьяна said...

I am going to guess #2

Mommarock said...

Well, you certainly didn't make any of the choices easy did you LOL. I will guess #3 since even I (a beginner) has 2 machines.. although one of them doesn't work.

pasqueflower said...

I think #1 is false.

Dee said...

#3, if you only have one machine, then you must get another one so you can play with your daughter and grandbabies. Fig Tree - I LOVE EVERY ONE ONE OF YOUR LINES SO FAR!

Dana Gaffney said...

I have always loved everything she does, there is something about those subtle colors. I'm going to guess #3.

Anonymous said...

I think #2 is false! I Love this collection, but then I love all of the Fig Tree lines!
Susan

ni said...

Thanks for the chance! I would say the number two is the false one!

jenna said...

I'm going to guess that #2 is a lie. Great giveaway, very pretty fabrics.

hannah said...

California Girl looks just dreamy!! I think the lie is #2.
Thanks for the opportunity to win some fabric!

Brenda said...

I think #1 is the lie as because who has time for a chicken coop when there's all that beautiful fabric to play around with!!

Kwilt Noob said...

I know for sure that #1 is correct. (I would love one too!)
I think Joanna is a pretty smart cookie, so it wouldn't surprise me that she knows more than one language.
I know a lot of really talented quilters and designers who only have one machine, so it wouldn't be shocking to me at all if she is among them.
So......I'm going with #3 is False.
It would be so wonderful to win this gorgeous bundle.
Thanks for the chance!!

Cindy said...

Beautiful fabric. I'd love to win some.

I'll guess number 2 is the lie.

sunporchquilts said...

I think #3 is false. Joanna did a chicken design for the Country Fair so she probably secretly covets a chicken coop in the back yard, and with all her trips to Europe I'm sure she can speak more than one language. As for #3, there are not many quilters with just one machine! Have to have a back up you know!

Stray Stitches said...

I would have to guess that number 3 is the lie. But then stranger things have been true - lol!

tamara said...

This fabric is so pretty, I hope I win it!! I think #3 is a lie.
Thanks for the giveaway!

Becky said...

I'll go with #2 being false, as everyone needs chickens and at least 2 sewing machines.

debbymom said...

Guessing #2 ... 3 languages. She probably knows more than that! Fig tree colors and designs remind me of (well deserved) lazy afternoons -- simple, accepting, quiet, unhurried, lazy afternoons.

deserae said...

I will guess #2!

Marika said...

I'm gonna go with #3 because it almost seems impossible !

Thanks for the chance :)

Robin said...

I think the first comment is the lie. Thanks for the chance!

Sandy said...

I'm thinking #3 is false. I hope! Thanks for the opportunity to win!=)

Janine said...

I'm guessing number 3. Love this fabric.

Mardeen said...

I think #3 is wrong - She must have more than 1 sewing machine!

Beth said...

I am going to guess #2!

teresamnj said...

Oh, what pretty fabrics! I think number 3 is not true. Even I own more than one sewing machine! :)

Pink Ribbon Quilts said...

I'm going to guess #2 because who has time to learn languages when there are so many quilts to make? hee hee

Hildy said...

I'll take #3. Beautiful fabric and thanks for the chance to win!

Beautiful fabric! I'm guessing #3 is not true. thank you for the chance to win.

Linda said...

Love the fabric, such wonderful colors and prints. I am going with #2 as being false. Thanks for a chance to win this fabric.

Cory said...

I think #1 is the lie. Thank you for the chance to win Joanna's beautiful fabrics. Take care and God bless, Cory

quiltmom said...

I am guessing that The one about the chicken coop is a fib but it is hard to tell because the other two are very believable.
Thanks for the chance to win such lovely Fig Tree fabrics.
Regards from Western Canada,
Anna

Bonny said...

LZ said...

I also think that number three is the lie. Sure would love to win.

VickiT said...

I am going to guess #2 is the lie.

Aggie Mom said...

I am going to go with #1. Anyone that describes their collection as Rich & Elegant, A harvest Table and Wine Country in the fall doesn't sound earthy enough to want a chicken coop.

Francis said...

I am going to guess #2 as wrong. I'm pretty sure she speaks 2 languages but not sure about the 3rd.

Thanks for doing the giveaway. I love the colors in this collection!

Four dogs and one quilter said...

After listening to Joanna's interview with Pat Sloan, I can say with confidence that #2 is false.

Heather said...

Wow, that's a tough one. I love this line so I'm going to guess #3. I'm cheaper than cheap and I own 2 machines, one new bernina (I splurged after 23 years with a Janome) and a serger (which is a sewing machine in my books).

Jen said...

I'm going to guess #2.

Lindsay Anne said...

I'm going to go with number 1.

shayshap said...

I am going to guess #3 is a lie. Love the designer pack. thanks, kathy

CarrieM said...

I'm guessing #2. carrie dot hare at gmail dot com

Connie said...

I am guessing #3 is a lie - only 1 sewing machine??? Nope
Quilting by the River

Jeanne said...

I think #2 is the lie. I'm sure she speaks more than one language. I'm just guessing that one of them is not French.

Katharine said...

I have to go with number 3...but it seems too easy! :)

Miss Jean said...

I'm guessing #2 is false. I know she speaks two languages, but I've never seen where she has mentioned French. I know she would love chickens and it wouldn't surprise me if she has stayed with just her trusty old Bernina!

Melissa @ Happy Quilting said...

I am going with #3. Who knows if I am right but I like to think she has more than one :)

Paula said...

I too think that #3 is false.
Thanks for the giveaway!
ap_lemos at yahoo dot com

Mimi said...

I am guessing that #3 is not correct - you have to have more than one sewing machine.

JC in TX said...

Chicken Coop - NOT! #1 is a lie!

Kelsey said...

I'm guessing #3 is incorrect~!

Marjorie Paul said...

I'm guessing #2 is the lie because she very likely can speak more than three languages. As for #3, the irony of it tells me it's true - she does have one machine. And some people have a special place for chickens in their hearts - so it has to be #2.

James-Linda said...

#1 is not true!
LOVELY FABRICS!
THANK YOU!

somecallmeambingale said...

I'm going to guess #1 as the lie.

Lisa said...

It has to be #3!! This line is beautiful, hope I win!!
