Our 2019 Block of the Month Programs are underway!

JUST A BIT OF INFO TODAY We have been getting a lot of questions about our BOM programs lately so thought I would post all the info in one place… If you have been following along on our quilting adventures for a while you will know that over the last few years we have fallen in love with BOMS… otherwise known as BLOCK-OF-THE-MONTH programs. There is something so very satisfying about working on just a few unique blocks each month all year long and then having such a magnificent sampler done at the end. It is a totally addictive process if you ask me! For those of you who participate in those programs, this is all old hat to you. For those of you who have no idea what these programs consist of… here is some info: Some BLOCK OF THE MONTH programs out…

SUMMARY OF 2019 GOODIES!

Hopefully this isn’t too repetitive but I wanted to put all of this information in one place so that everyone can see it. I know that so many of you are new to our site and new to our social media so I want to make sure that you guys have all the same information as the “diehards” that have been here for a decade or more LOL. WHAT WE ARE OFFERING FOR 2019   BLOCK OF THE MONTH: MYSTERY SAMPLER- FIG TREE FARMHOUSE. That program is now full but we are always taking names for the wait list in case someone has an emergency or something happens and we are able to add a few spots. Please email me, joanna@figtreequilts.com . The list is created in order of names received so if you are interested, don’t wait! BLOCK OF THE MONTH: CHARCOAL…

MYSTERY SAMPLER BOM 2019: Fig Tree Farmhouse

Hello my friends! I know that many of you diehards are already signed up for this fabulous program for next year but I wanted to share a few more details about it for those of you who are still thinking or who might be new to Fig Tree or new to our Block of the Month programs. OVERVIEW Several years ago, it dawned on us after dozens of requests that even though our fabrics are distributed far and wide and hundreds and hundreds of stores carry and love them worldwide, that not everyone has a Fig Tree loving store physically near them. It was then that we decided that we wanted to build an online community for those people… and for any of you who were looking to join in on the fun. And you all came out of the woodwork and we have loved getting to know you…

Block of the Month Sign Ups are Here!

Hello My Fig Tree Loving Friends- Its that time of the year where we present our new BLOCK OF THE MONTH programs for 2018. This year we are doing 2 new ones and a redo of this year's RED & CREAM due to popular request… because who doesn't love a good red & cream quilt to add to their collection! For those of you die hard Fig Tree fans, you know the drill… sign up as soon as you can while they are still available. For those of you new around here, here is some info about our BOM[Block-of-the-Month] programs: We run a few each year. Most of them are 12 month long, a few [like the Red & Cream] are 10 month. Each month you get a package of fabrics and directions for the blocks you need to make…

2016 Mystery Fig Tree Sampler

As I write this, I should be finishing up the binding on this lovely 2016 project. My Instagram friends urged me to finish up the binding so that I could consider it a February finish and that is just the cheering section I need right about now to get this one done! UPDATE: BINDING DONE [see last photo] !! Sometimes I absolutely love binding and sometimes… well sometimes not so much [usually depending on what else I have to do at the same time]! These annual samplers have surely become my favorite projects of all time. The one from 2015 was based a little bit more around a sherbet palette with navy as the darkest element [I will share some comparison photos in a few days]. This sampler from 2016 went a bit more retro and was based around my Farmhouse and Strawberry Fields collections and used a chalkboard black…

Mystery Sampler Updates

Well hello everyone! We are now starting to prepare month #3 packages for all of our 2016 Block of the Month programs and so it seemed like a perfect time for some updates here on the blog. For more regular updates, follow me on Instagram as I post there much more often there! I am figtreeandco  !!   MYSTERY SAMPLER BOM Can I say that I am already in love with this sampler and I don't even know how its going to turn out in the end? … month #1 blocks above.   If you are signed up for our Mystery Sampler Block of the Month program, you just received your second month last week and hopefully you are working away at some of those fun blocks… see below.   I can't wait to add some orange and grey into next month's block selection…

Fig Tree Mystery Sampler II

UPDATE: The program is sold out as of now. We are so very sorry that it went so fast. We are trying to see if we can add any more spots but it all depends on fabric availability and how many more bolts we can find. If you are interested in a spot, please email us and we will add you to the wait list. Please understand that we are just not set up as as a standard quilt store and don't have the capability to cut, prepare and ship an unlimited amount of kits. We started these programs as a way of reaching customers that don't have a good local quilt store near them and their popularity has grown so tremendously each time that there is simply no way for us to keep up! We have already doubled and then tripled our initial BOM spots…
