TRICK OR TREAT Finish!

FREE TRICK OR TREAT JELLY ROLL PATTERN ALL FINISHED UP! Wow… it has taken me a little bit longer than expected to get these photos up here for the finish of this project! A lot has happened in the last week or so! This was such a fun project for me to see. I loved the idea when Susan first showed it to me and I love it even more now that she has finished it and gotten it back from her lovely quilter! It’s always that magical moment when you open your quilt package, don’t you think? So this is where we started… And here is the finished project! For quilting, we chose a small pumpkin seed [an all over geometric pattern] to unify the quilt and give it a slightly vintage, retro feel… one of my all time favorite all over…

Teaching Adventures

Hello my Quilty Friends! Its been a while since I have blogged and I sooooo want to get back into a better habit of doing this because it really is a place where I can share so much more than I am able to do on Instagram, which is where I am most of the time these days. Why? Because it is SO MUCH EASIER for me and with the totally insane schedule I seem to keep, EASIER is sometimes the only way it will happen!  I would love it if you would join me there if you haven't already. I am figtreeandco !! Anyway, I have been getting A LOT of questions and requests lately for teaching and folks wondering why I don't seem to be doing it so much anymore. Well….. traveling to teach takes a lot of time and energy and frankly…

It’s All About Halloween

I know that many of you are eagerly awaiting some more photos and info from Market. Others of you want to know about new patterns.That's coming up next… However, around here it has been all about Halloween since our plane touched down from Houston a few short days ago. All. About. Halloween. Just a few shots…   And of course, it was all about the Woodland Fairy! For those of you on faceebook, this is old news but… Gotta love how an orange leotard, some tulle, a bag full of fall foliage from Michael's can come together with my trusty glue gun! I had so much fun!! And just to be clear…. I do have two teenage boys around here somewhere. One was a 60's hippie and escaped the camera to go to a Halloween party. The other was…

School & Pumpkins and such

Well, my munchkins started school yesterday… all 3 of them! A lot of emotional firsts for us in the Fig household… first kindergarden day for Ella, first day back in 3rd grade with the same beloved teacher as last year for Zack and the first day of a brand new school in the 6th grade for my oldest, Ben. It looks like they all weathered it much better than I did and are quite excited to go back again tomorrow…  …a few moments on the front porch before walking to school. Oldest had to leave earlier so managed to escape the mandatory first day of school pictures….I love the fact that she still sits like that and just doesn't care. In fact she will show off those Dora unders to anyone who will listen! Me on the other hand would love…

We're back from Pacific International Quilt Festival, we're mostly repacked, reshipped, reorganized and are madly finishing up details for our trip tomorrow to the Houston Fall Quilt Market. Usually we have a bit more time in between these two huge shows- one retail and one wholesale- but not this year. This year the powers that be decided to put them right on top of one another, making our lives…. well to be polite, interesting. Let's just say it's a good thing that Halloween is a good 4 days after I return from Houston or my munchkins would be trick or treating naked… well perhaps that is a bit dramatic but they would certainly not be trick or treating in anything new or interesting! I won't have a chance to do any real sneak peaks until after I return…
