12 Days of Christmas 2020: Day #2

Hello my Fig Tree Friends!!

It’s the 2nd day of the 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS SALE.

If you want to know more about how the sale works, then CLICK HERE for all of the info.

If you want to shop, then here we go! Just CLICK HERE.

ON THE SECOND DAY OF CHRISTMAS, MY TRUE LOVE GAVE TO ME, TWO TURTLEDOVES.

KIT FOR THE DAY: POINSETTIA KIT

… I just love the large blocks and the variety of prints in the backgrounds!

… and of course my favorite red and white Christmas floral for the border and the backing too.

It isn’t Christmas at our house until there are Poinsettias on our front porch. There is something so beautiful and festive about these plants that bring so much color in the whiteness of winter. As for these sewn versions, they are a perfect way to bring some of that Poinsettia beauty to the indoors. Kit includes everything for the quilt top including the blocks, sashing, background, binding and the pattern.

… look at that amazing quilting by the lovely Diana Johnson on this you guys!

Quilt Size 71.5″ x 71.5″ so it is definitely a nice size quilt.

BUNDLE FOR THE DAY: RED & GREY BUNDLE

This is a new combo for us but we are in love with it. We chose all of the deeper reds that we had collected over the year and paired them with soft, warm greys mixed with creams. The result is classic and traditional but could be more modern at the same time. A perfect Farmhouse Christmas blend if I do say so!

Look at some of those yummies in there… my favorite might be that large pine needle floral print in the grey and also in the red [the one on the bottom]… isn’t it good? Each bundle has (12) ½ yds.

NOTION FOR THE DAY: RETRO STORK SCISSORS

What do I need to say about these? They are cute. They are vintage inspired. They are storks. They are aqua, red and green. What else is there? They are too cute!

… they actually look like storks walking when they are opened like this!

GIFT FOR THE DAY: SIMPLICITY UMBRELLA & SIMPLICITY TOTEBAG

This is the perfect little gift to yourself for the rainy season! What a great idea to mix our love of vintage sewing images from the archives of Simplicity with taking a stroll down the street!

Makes a perfect girlfriend gift too.

And while we were on the Simplicity theme… we added in the tote bag too!

The Vintage Dress Pattern Tote from our friends at Simplicity is a fun sewing themed tote to add to your sewing room. Take it with you to class or to the quilt store or… just enjoy it hanging on the door :-).

Take a closer look at those fabulous dresses… why can’t our fashion be like this :-)??
Size: 13″ x 17″

They are just the best kind of sassy if you ask me!

SALE SPECIAL FOR THE DAY

For today’s SPECIAL, all regular Christmas patterns are 25% off so go and see if there is anything you have had your eye on! You should be able to locate them all in the CHRISTMAS section of the shop… on the left sidebar. And don’t worry… these won’t sell out while you browse! Books and BOM/Large Scale patterns are not included.

TOMORROW’S SALE (DAY #3/Saturday) WILL GO LIVE TONITE at midnight plus 5 minutes so it will technically be Saturday at 12:05 am 🙂 [PST]… But for me here in California it will still be late Friday night!

    Your blog post for today says November 17, 2020. Negotiating this 12 days of Christmas is very confusing! I think that I have cleared my cart….but do not know….did not want to.

      Strange… mine says November 20. Not sure.

        Please refresh your screen and see if you can see the correct date, maybe?

    Wow!!! Love love love the red and grey bundle today! So classy and inviting. Thank you!

    • joanna@figtreequilts.com | 20th Nov 20

      Thank you! That was a fun one to put together.

    I’m not sure if this helps, but clicking on the blog link from my newsletter, takes me to an old post. It lists the quilt for today as a retro orange, the sew attitude towels and clover red and green wonder clips. The deal coupon is for a Coney Island layer cake drawing. Totally different than the actual blog.

    • joanna@figtreequilts.com | 20th Nov 20

      We found it, but can’t change it! For some reason it looks like it linked to another blog post with the same title! Nothing we can about that one since the newsletter has gone out. But if you just click on the blog directly, you will get today’s blog post. Thanks!

    Thank you for all of the effort you and your team are putting into this! Can’t believe how many comments you are responding too – above and beyond!
