Buttercream and Figs comes home!

Figs1I need to find a name for this beautiful quilt. I got it back Wednesday from a new longarm quilter I tried for the first time, although I had seen her work on my sis-in-law's quilts. She does beautiful custom work, and I was thrilled with what she did for mine!

She outlined the patches in the pieced blocks, and stitched a beautiful feathered wreath with stippling that looks like berries in the center and around the wreaths. Stunning work, and the price was so reasonable, I'm looking around to see what other quilts I have to send her!


The fabrics I used are mostly from a Moda fabric line that is about 2 years old called Buttercream and Figs, designed by Fig Tree Quilts. I did supplement my FQ bundle with a few other coordinating fabrics. The pieced block is from the Once More Around the Block book by Judy Hopkins - the Vermont block in the 12" size. The quilt finishes about 82" x 82".



  1. It's too beautiful for words!!!!!

  2. Gorgeous! I especially like the "berries", nice touch!

  3. It is just beautiful...takes my breath away. What beautiful quilting. Love the Blocks!

  4. OMG, Lisa! The work she did is just beautiful!! Not too much quilting, just enough to show off your wonderful piecework! Awesome, girlfriend!!!

  5. The quilting is VERY nice. May I ask the address of this quilter? And may I be so bold as to ask what she charges per square yard, for custom work. I just got a quilt back from "my" longarm quilter, and I was disappointed. I'm looking for a new one. thanks for your time and information and sharing.

  6. It's beautiful
    Kind Regards,

  7. Well, I hardly know where to begin. That is just exquisite. Your use of fabrics, colors and the quilting design all combine to make one of the most beautiful quilts I have ever seen. Your work is fantastic!
