12 Days of Christmas: Day #8

Hello my Fig Tree Friends!

It’s the 8th and FINAL 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.



… simple “sew and flip” sewing and no templates makes this a fun and simple pattern to put together.

… look at how yummy that little kit looks?

Last year at the end of the sale, I asked you guys what you would like to see for next year’s sale. Other than “more bundles” and “more kits”, the request I got the most often was to include something that that was not Christmas related so that you guys could have something fun to start working on for the spring and summer months. So here she is!

Inspired by a favorite vintage Baltimore Album block, this fun pieced version is the perfect ode to a spring or summer table topper! Simple piecing in our favorite “sew and flip” method, no templates. Optional leaf trios in the corners for those of you applique aficionados. 
​Kit includes all the fabrics for the top exactly as you see them along with the binding and the pattern.

Size: app. 31 ½” x 31 ½”


… reds and creams are always at the top of my favorites list!

You guys know that I am all about the red and the cream. We have done entire quilt shows with that color scheme, I have done patterns and samplers and my house at Christmas… well let’s just say I am NOT ABOUT THE NEUTRAL at Christmas time. So once again we have created a fabulous bundle of reds and creams for you for the last day of this sale. 

Each bundle has (14) ½ yd cuts, 7 of each of red and cream prints. If you have been wanting to start our Red & Cream Sampler, this would be a perfect place to start. The pattern is on special today as well!

Thoughts on how else to use this bundle? Oh my goodness the possibilities are endless, with (7) of each of red and cream, you can pretty much start any of our Christmas patterns, add it to your stash for some fantastic red & cream inspiration, create something classic that is red & cream, but not Christmas at all, or Christmas that can still go year around. Not a single one of the prints is exclusively CHRISTMAS and they will all work for every other season as well. Speaking of seasons… I could totally see some seriously beautiful Valentine’s projects from this bundle too.


… such a fun retro feeling cloth tape measure!

I love this tape measure… maybe as much for its feel and how it looks as for its functionality. It is a 60″ long wide, one sided canvas/twill tape measure that just makes me happy. Use it or just put it your studio for a fun little nostalgic decoration.


… look at all of those adorable chickens!

… and look at this adorable little canvas baggie it comes in?

A perfect way to bring some chicken love into your kitchen next year… whether or not. you actually have chickens!

  • 19″ x 31.75″ (48cm x 80cm) 
  • Packaged in a handsewn muslin bag 
  • Featuring images from the Cavallini archives


THANK YOU FOR JOINING OUR 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS SALE! Wow this was an exceedingly crazy year and you guys were SO FAST that most kits and bundles sold out each day within minutes! I guess we should have all expected this year’s sale to be extra crazy… kind of like the rest of the year!

Remember that we will continue to add SALE goodies in limited quantities for the next few hours so please do check back in if you are able and especially if you know that you have ample space in your box. The sale will officially close early this afternoon. At that point the “i bought a box” shipping option will disappear from the shop.


We will start putting the boxes together on Monday and begin shipping on Tuesday. The shipping process will take at least a week so please be patient. We are not able to tell you the status of your box during the shipping time as we let the elves do their box magic!

Stay tuned for a few fun items coming right after the sale!

    Thank you Joanna and elves for another fun “12” Days of Christmas sale!

  2. Gail Dunning | 28th Nov 20

    I must say that I am more than a little sad that I missed out on some of the bundles. My rural internet connection leaves a lot to be desired. I would have loved to have had the red and cream bundle. So pretty! Merry Christmas and Happy sewing to one and all!

    • joanna@figtreequilts.com | 29th Nov 20

      So sorry you were not able to grab your items. Yes the rural internet connection must really be a disadvantage at times like these. Hope you have a wonderful holiday season!

  3. PENNY J HOLLIDAY | 28th Nov 20

  7. Becky | 28th Nov 20

    Thanks for the 12 days of Fig Tree goodies! Enjoyed looking at everything but sad my purchase was stolen out of my shopping cart! Really was not expecting that….guess I was too slow this year.

    • joanna@figtreequilts.com | 29th Nov 20

      Thanks so much for playing! It is all about how quickly you check out since multiple people can have the same item in their cart at the same time. Happy Holidays to you!

  8. Diana | 28th Nov 20

    Thank you Joanna and Company! I had more fun. It was a nice break from Covid, Politics and on a personal note, Cancer! I bought things that made me happy and have plans to get back into my sewing soon! I am doing very well and just have radiation to go! Thanks again for all the excitement and Fun!

  9. Valerie | 28th Nov 20

    The 12 (8) days of Christmas has been amazing. I missed a few things (sometimes life gets in the way) but I also got some really awesome things.
    Thank you Joanna and all your behind the scene elves. As always I loved every minute, including those stressful seconds of getting my order in. Haha
    I will be there next year!

    • joanna@figtreequilts.com | 29th Nov 20

      So glad that you were able to score some fabulous items! And thank you for your great approach to the game! Grateful you are here with us!

    It’s been fun to read all the excitement from people who were able to buy a bundle or kit! I hope you will try and figure out a way to give more of us a chance next year. Congratulations on a successful sale.

    Thank you Joanna and elves. I always enjoy the 12 Days of Christmas Sale. 8 days was a good change. You do a fine job of designing and selecting things.

I love your Website and go on it nearly every day.
