Fig Tree & Co
Joanna Figueroa is textile designer, author & owner of Fig Tree & Co, a quilt & sewing pattern company.
My desire to create something almost always starts with the color inspiration itself. Beautiful color combinations are everywhere if we can train our eyes to see them. A few colors that we see everyday, suddenly look fresh and new when put together into an unexpected grouping. I love that!
My designs, both for fabric & for quilting, always start with the color palette. I work with vintage fabric swatches, my flower garden, wrapping paper, children’s illustrations from the early part of the last century, flea market finds, antique quilts to start finding colors that speaks to me. The palette dictates the designs themselves and slowly a collection grows. I call myself a hybrid fabric designer. I like to use many different mediums and techniques to create my designs including vintage fabrics, painting, computer, line drawings, just to name a few.
