Summer Fun & More

Hello Friends! We have been doing a couple fun things lately that I wanted to share with you… JUMPING  JACKS QUILT ALONG A few weeks ago, some of my Instagram friends kind of talked me into starting a Jumping Jack Quilt Along with this pattern… [the original Jumping Jacks patterns was one I created for myself last summer and one of the only patterns that I had the time to work on "just for me". We quickly made it a pattern after it was finished.] I had never done or participated in a Quilt Along but thought it would be fun to see everyone's blocks as we worked on them at the same time.I have absolutely no business working on a quilt for fun [am supposed to be dedicating every spare minute to new Market collections, patterns and booth prep] but just…

Our brand new “AURIKIT”!

Fresh Figs We are so happy to announce that we have partnered with AURIFIL threads to bring you some amazing Fig Tree goodies! Today I wanted to share with you a little bit about the "AURIKIT" we have [ tomorrow I will tell you a bit more about the large FIG TREE THREAD COLLECTION too] designed with the amazing folks over at Aurifil and MODA! Thank you so much Alex, Kim and Lissa! I think this all started two markets ago and it just took a bit of time to get all the logistics worked out. The little "Aurikit" box contains (7) threads of AURIFIL thread, a 2 1/2" mini charm of Somerset fabric and a free pattern that you see pictured on the cover of the box. The threads all match the main colors in the Somerset collection of course [both the kit and…

Market: Spring Pittsburgh ’14

As you might remember from last time around, and the time before that and the time before that….. that it usually takes me about a week to dig myself out, brush myself off and rejoin the world after Market! LOL! Well… it seems that this time was no different. You might have already seen all the Market shots you could possibly handle… but here go mine. Up today is an overload of pictures of our Market booth. Hope you are ready! No words. Just pics.  Hope you enjoy the Fig Tree 🙂   … my shoes never last long :-).                      &#0160…

More on the MINIS…

Okay… so I am going to try to answer all the MINI questions at once. Hopefully yours is in there! • We have 4 new minis. This week they were all available as PDF download patterns. Including a great deal on a bundle! Starting on Monday, they will also all be available as printed paper patterns. Including a bundle too :-). The PDF's will only be available from us. The printed patterns will be available from any store who purchases our patterns. As a gal who loves all things paper, the patterns don't really seem real until they come in their shiny little packages. I can't wait fo the paper patterns to get here. • We will also start shipping to stores on Monday. So if you have contacted us for the patterns, that is when they will start to ship. • We will most likely offer…

Introducing… MINI PATTERNS!

We are so excited to share a little sneak peek of a new line of patterns… INTRODUCING OUR BRAND NEW MINI PATTERNS! I have always loved little quilts. In fact, I remember that one of my very first quilt books- the kind that I poured over in bed night after night trying to figure out which one I was going to make next kind of book- was Little Quilts: All Through the House by Alice Berg. Now that was a long time ago but my love of little quilts has never gone away. In fact, the very first quilt I ever bought at a flea market was a little bubblegum pink wishbone doll quilt. That was the beginning of my love of doll quilts and other quilt mini quilts [ I wil have to go and dig that one out and show you as soon as I get back from…

Market Recap… for real

Of course Market was a lovely adventure as always. Eric and I both hate it and love it every single time. Since we do it two times a year and we have been doing this for more than ten years… well, we've done a lot of them and still always love it and hate it?! It is a crazy amount of work but it is the best time to see friends and colleagues, to showcase our new products and to generally participate in this wonderful industry of ours. Regardless of how much we might whine and complain, we wouldn't have it any other way. This time around due to a completely crazy schedule over here in Fig Tree land and a huge retail show the weekend before Market, we opted to showcase our goodies in the MODA DESIGNER SHOWCASE area instead of having our own…

Halloween Spools

Today we wanted to show you what we are working on at the moment and for our upcoming retail show in October [coming up way too soon!]. We have used one of our brand new patterns [for release in Houston at the end of October] and transformed it into a quick and simple Halloween quilt that we think you might just love as much as we do. The new pattern is called "Spools Quartet" and this version is "Halloween Spools" and it is made with 12 different warm blacks, soft greys and our signature butterscotch oranges. It is the kind of quilt that comes together in a weekend with simple cutting and construction. Whip one out this week just in time to display for Halloween… really and truly! These blocks are crazy simple with no triangles, using the square, sew and flip method that most…
