ON THE THIRD DAY OF CHRISTMAS, MY TRUE LOVE GAVE TO ME, THREE FRENCH HENS….

Our kit for the day:  RETRO ORANGE QUILT KIT

I fell in love with a vintage version of this lovely quilt in the MODA Quilt Market booth this past fall. There was something about it that just drew me in and I couldn't let it go.

… there it is up there on that lovely stack.

So I went home and tried to recreate the feel of that vintage beauty but of course without those dreaded templates or specialty rulers, etc. My version uses a method where you have to measure a portion of your square, mark a line and sew. That's it! The rest of the quilt just comes together and the scrappier the better.

I know that an orange quilt is not for everyone but I think it is just a perfect addition to any vintage feeling quilt collection. And that lovely sparkly Crossweave orange… well its to die for! I am just a little bit in love with mine!

Kit includes fabrics for the blocks, the orange Crossweave and orange dots for the background, the border, binding and directions. Most of the fabrics are from Farmhouse. Quilt Size: app. 60" x 72"

… mostly all orange Crossweave as the background with a few Farmhouse orange dot fabric mixed in to add to that scrappy vintage feel!

 

Our Notion of the day: EIFFEL TOWER SCISSORS

To be quite honest, I'm not sure that I have ever found something with an Eiffel Tower on it that I didn't like. But scissors? Come on now!

Perfect as little thread snips in our travel bag or in a cup near your machine just for the sheer loveliness of them, these heavy weight scissors are just too fun to pass up. I would call them mostly a novelty pair of scissors because I wouldn't use them for my regular cutting needs but they are certainly perfect for snipping threads and they would most certainly make a perfect gift or stocking stuffer.

Available in either a burnished Antique Gold color or an Bright Gold version. We recommend one of each… at least that's what we did! App. 5.5" long.

12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS INFO… 
PLEASE READ ALL THE DETAILS 
AS SOME INFO HAS CHANGED
 
* The Fig Tree 12 Days of Christmas sale starts on Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, and lasts for 12 days [usually with a Sunday off here or there].  
 
* Each day a different kit, stocking stuffer and/or home dec goodie will be advertised- on some days several of each! WE HAVE SO MANY YUMMY GOODIES THIS YEAR! Each day a special DAILY DEAL will be made as well.  
 
* Each special offer will only become available on that one day. Each goodie will only be available while stock lasts. Most of the items offered will sell out on that day, some will last a few days. Please believe us that some items will sell out crazy fast [in minutes] and some will last all day based on popularity and stock. Although we try and anticipate the demand, we are often surprised by your enthusiasm and are limited by how much stock we can carry of any given item.
 
* We never know which ones will sell out the fastest! If we are able to get more in stock of any popular product, we will try but we can't guarantee that anything that sells out will come back in stock. If they can, it will not be a part of the sale but something that we offer after Christmas for a separate January delivery. 
 
* For those of you who want to continue to purchase items throughout the 12 days of the sale but want us to hold your purchases for one shipment, YOU NEED TO BUY-A-BOX. SEE MORE INFO BELOW. The box is an actual product available on our homepage.  You only need to purchase it once either before the sale starts or on the first day that you purchase a 12DAYS item- but you need to purchase it as an actual product once. Then for all the remaining purchases you make, you will simply choose the "I BOUGHT  A BOX" option in the shipping directions during the checkout process. PLEASE READ BELOW FOR NEW INFO on the BUY-A-BOX option.
 
*** PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
AS OUR SHIPPING OPTIONS HAVE CHANGED THIS YEAR ***

Just like in past years of the 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS we offer you the choice to hold all of your daily goodies to be shipped together at the end of the sale so you can save money on the shipping costs and keep adding goodies throughout the 12 days! Its an awesome option and a lot of fun! This year we are continuing our special shipping system, called "BUY-A-BOX" and have added the "BUY-A-ENVELOPE" option.

This is how it will now work:
Given the crazy, popularity of this sale for us, each year we have to make some adjustments based on the past year's sale. This year, just as last year, in order to "play along" with the 12 days of the sale, you need to first BUY-A-BOX or BUY-AN-ENVELOPE.

If you think that you will mostly buy small items and are primarily interested in the daily deals and the stocking stuffers, then you should BUY-AN-ENVELOPE. If your goodies "spill" out of the envelope, we will upgrade you to a medium box… AT NO EXTRA CHARGE. Once your medium box fills, we will send it to you along with an email that your box has shipped. Depending on what day of the sale it is and if you plan on continuing for the remaining days, you will then be able to decide if you wish to buy another envelope or box in order to continue with the sale or not.

If you think that you will be trying to get kits, fabrics and some of the "bigger ticket" items and you are a die hard 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS fan, then you should BUY-A-BOX. If your goodies "spill" out of the medium box, we will upgrade you to a large box… AT NO EXTRA CHARGE. Once your large box fills, we will send it to you along with an email that your box has shipped. Depending on what day of the sale it is and if you plan on continuing for the remaining days, you will then be able to decide if you wish to buy another box in order to continue with the sale or not.

If your envelope or box does not fill throughout the sale, it will remain until the last day and it will ship on that day.

The biggest change from last year – for those of you who have participated before- is that once your allotted box has filled, we will need to ship it and you can decide if you wish to purchase another box. This is still a fabulous shipping deal! Not only because we will be upgrading you one shipping category at our cost, but because you can keep shopping knowing that we will continue to put items in your box until we absolutely cannot add anything else! The reason we are changing the shipping from the past is because of the sheer volume of customers that outgrew their box multiple times. The result was a bit more chaos than the elves knew what to do with around her toward the end of the sale!

    I am unable to pull up the deal of the day with prices. Only able to pull up past deals that are gone. Nothing happens to get me to the item, no links? I have a new IPad that seems to work with other shops. Very frustrating! Are others having this problem?

    Once the deals sell out, they are no longer visible. Today’s deals go up in 5 minutes.
