On the 3rd Day of Christmas…

  After a little nap, the elves are ready and waiting to bring you more goodies…   On the 3rd Day of Christmas my true love gave to me, three French Hens . Unfortunately the husband has not agreed to a chicken coop, even though I have been wanting one for three years, so we had to give the French Hens away. Instead, we are thinking that you might want to make your own grocery bag. We don't know about the laws in your area, but around here we will not have the option of plastic grocery bags in the stores as of January 1st. Given this, everyone is trying to figure out how to make some fun reusable bags of their own. Even if your area doesn't require it like ours does, it is certainly better for the environment to use fabric bags…

On the 1st Day of Christmas….

On the 1st Day of Christmas my true love sent to me, a partridge in a pear tree.  But since we didn't know what to do with a partridge, we added a little Peppermint Pops kit. And since we weren't really sure about shipping you all a pear tree, we added a Mini Stocking pattern with every kit order placed.     We are in the process of making our own version and are once again having so much fun with the blocks…   This is what your kit will contain… yummy!     … the free goodie that comes with the kit today.   Please click HERE for more information. See you tomorrow!  * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS FINE PRINT • The Fig Tree 12 Days of Christmas sale starts on Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, and lasts for 12 days. • Each…

Our trip to PIQF

Each year we vend at the Pacific International Quilt Festival and each year we are humbled and surprised by how many of you travel to visit us from near and far. This is the only retail show that we do and we love the opportunity to say hi to our customers and hear from you so…. THANK YOU for stopping by and chatting and letting us know what your favorite products and patterns are. We appreciate you and all your amazing support of our business! This year our whole family participated, our oldest on the cash register for several days, our middle trying his hand at the register as well for a few hours and our youngest…. well, she will tell anyone who will listen that she is famous as she is our cover model for many of the patterns! As usual, it takes us much longer to…

Pattern Showcase: Sparkle

Today I wanted to show some of our newest shots of our bestselling SPARKLE quilt. We thought that "sparkle" was such a perfect name for this project because it just twinkles with color even as you are still putting it together So wonderful done in a variety of colors, I have some customers working on it in a patriotic group, in batiks and in romantic florals. I can't wait to see each and everyone of them!   This is one of those great projects that looks like a lot of time and labor went into it when in fact it really is a simple 4 block quilt. Even we were amazed each time we sewed up a new sample as to how quickly each star came together.  Each star can be made with a charm pack or scraps from your stash. The 4 blocks are…

Pattern Showcase: Pineapple & Figs

One of my all-time favorite patterns made from one of my all time favorite color palettes, PINEAPPLE & FIGS uses a no ruler, no funky cutting techniques method that makes these blocks come together in such a simple way that you won't believe it. Its just rectangles and squares. Really! If you have ever wanted to make this classic block but didn't want to deal with templates or bias, then this really is for you. I think. Sewing these blocks is remarkably similar to  making a Log Cabin block and just as simple and basic. It's perfect in these autumn flavored colors, or in a variety of others, although I am personally biased to this one. Autumn is my favorite time of the year and this color combo just sings to me. I should have put a cream SNUGGLE on the back…
