The quarterly pattern booklet that Fig Tree Quilts designer Joanna Figueroa creates for her fans is called Fresh Vintage, and the term perfectly defines her style. So it’s no surprise to find that Joanna herself lives in a fresh vintage setting—a 1938 northern California cottage updated with plenty of charm, not to mention gallons and gallons of paint in her signature background color of buttercream. Getting just the right shade of cream to set off each room was her biggest design challenge, jokes her husband Eric. “There are 30 quarts of different shades of cream-color paint in the garage,” he says.
