Vintage Halloween Quilts Over the Years

VINTAGE HALLOWEEN 2017 Each year we create a curated bundle of what we envision "vintage Halloween" to be. Since 2012 when we first started this tradition, we have collected and compiled soft orange, warm black, various greys and creams throughout the year in order to put together the best Vintage Halloween bundles we can come up with. All of the fabrics are MODA, all of them contain a little Fig Tree but are mixed with so many different designers and collections that we couldn't possibly name them or tell you what's in each bundle. Since we have received so many questions and emails about past projects, we thought we would reminisce a little and see all of the patterns we have done. You can work on any of these vintage Halloween quilts with this years bundles, just like you can use past year&#39…

Vintage Halloween 2017 Bundles are Here!

Its that time of the year my friends! Summer is technically still here but for many of us, our minds are starting to turn [or have already turned] toward autumn, school calendars, back to school shopping and coming up sooner than we know it… Halloween. Introducing the VINTAGE HALLOWEEN PROJECT: 2017 EDITION… Vintage Spiderwebs!   We are so glad that you have joined us in our annual tradition of our exclusively curated Vintage Halloween bundles. Each year, right about this time, we create a new Fig Tree flavored Halloween bundle and kit. The colors are our version of Halloween- soft, warm blacks, butterscotch oranges, creams, soft greys… Vintage Halloween at its best! This year we are offering another yummy bundle called Vintage Spiderwebs. Using one of our classic Fig Tree patterns, FRESH LAUNDRY, we have given that pattern a completely new feel with these yummy Halloween colors. There…

In an effort to make sure that everyone who does't have a local quilt shop near them that loves Fig Tree as much they do, we offer kits of some of our brand new patterns in the upcoming collection. These will be available for another week or so, so that everyone who wants one can pre-order. After this, they…
