Introducing: TRELLIS

So today I thought I would start introducing the new patterns to you. First I want to mention that we will be doing PRE ORDER KITS for several of these patterns, as we always do with any new release. But first we will introduce all the info here so you all can make your decisions at home! TRELLIS The pattern has been done with a soft white background, a soft grey background and also shown at the end with charcoal cross weave. They all sing so beautifully in my opinion. In this first photo, you can also see the table runner version on the lefthand side- made with just one charm pack.                       INFORMATION ABOUT THE PATTERN Name: TRELLIS Size: 74″ x 74. or 15″ x 85″ if you would like to make the table runner instead…

Introducing CHANTILLY

This weekend, as we speak, is Quilt Market in Houston which means that it is time to show you what we have coming up for 2019! It is always a little bit strange to share with you items that you can only look at for 6 months but that is the way the industry operates. We create it for you a year in advance, we show it to stores 6 months in advance, they look and purchase and then all the goodies show up in the stores 6 months later. So all of that to say, this weekend is a big “showing” weekend in Houston and even though we are not there in person due to some personal family stuff, all of our quilts and goodies are and our fabulous MODA reps are selling the fabric left and right… literally! So today we wanted to start our…

SUMMARY OF 2019 GOODIES!

Hopefully this isn’t too repetitive but I wanted to put all of this information in one place so that everyone can see it. I know that so many of you are new to our site and new to our social media so I want to make sure that you guys have all the same information as the “diehards” that have been here for a decade or more LOL. WHAT WE ARE OFFERING FOR 2019   BLOCK OF THE MONTH: MYSTERY SAMPLER- FIG TREE FARMHOUSE. That program is now full but we are always taking names for the wait list in case someone has an emergency or something happens and we are able to add a few spots. Please email me, joanna@figtreequilts.com . The list is created in order of names received so if you are interested, don’t wait! BLOCK OF THE MONTH: CHARCOAL…

Charcoal & Cream Block of the Month program

Hello my Friends! I promised a deeper overview and insight into the upcoming CHARCOAL & CREAM MYSTERY BOM FOR 2019 so here we are. Each month you will receive a black [charcoal] and a cream fabric. You will also receive some ivory solid for the background to mix in with the cream prints. You will work with those fabrics mostly just for that month and you will lay them aside for some additional sashing/posts and other finishing items. With the fabric each month will come instructions for a 2-4 blocks all the same size. The blocks will all be classic, traditional blocks with our simple piecing techniques. No templates, no appliqué! Of the BOM programs we are offering for 2019, this will be the most straightforward and for lack of a better word, “simple” one. The setting will be straight set and all blocks will be…

MYSTERY SAMPLER BOM 2019: Fig Tree Farmhouse

Hello my friends! I know that many of you diehards are already signed up for this fabulous program for next year but I wanted to share a few more details about it for those of you who are still thinking or who might be new to Fig Tree or new to our Block of the Month programs. OVERVIEW Several years ago, it dawned on us after dozens of requests that even though our fabrics are distributed far and wide and hundreds and hundreds of stores carry and love them worldwide, that not everyone has a Fig Tree loving store physically near them. It was then that we decided that we wanted to build an online community for those people… and for any of you who were looking to join in on the fun. And you all came out of the woodwork and we have loved getting to know you…
