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…

LITTLE BOX OF FIGS: BOX 2

So hopefully by now most of you have received and are already enjoying our LITTLE BOX OF FIGS: The Fall Edition. Thank you to all of you how have let us know how much you are loving the "ingredients" of this second box! We are so very glad! I know that many of you missed out on this annual subscription and are wondering if you have any chance of jumping in on the fun. ORDERING UPDATES So here is the scoop…. we do not have any more official spots for this year [although every once in a while we do have an opening due to illness or emergency and we then contact the next person on the wait list from March]. Since there is a fabric based project in each of our boxes, we are limited by the amount of fabric that we have pre-ordered for each…

Kimberly’s Newest BOM

Each year the fabulous gals over at the Fat Quarter Shop decide on a theme and a fabric collection and start to make plans for their hugely popular Designer Mystery Block of the Month. You know how fab they are if you've ever done one! Every once in awhile they choose one of my collections to work with and every once in awhile, I have the pleasure to design the BOM itself. This time I got to do both things at once!   Along with 11 of our designer friends, I have also contributed a block [sneak peek of my block is on top of this lovely little stack below]. In fact the quilt starts off my with my basket block and then continues on with other wonderful basket, house, flower and star blocks. Its really quite fun and lovely! If you haven't already, I think…
