WELCOME TO OUR NEWEST FABRIC ADVENTURE!
Recently I went to a quilt show called ROAD TO CALIFORNIA and got to visit with my fellow MODA designer and friend, Lisa Bongean of Primitive Gatherings. We sat in her booth while she stitched and talked about the show and our fabric. As I looked around me at the sea of blues and indigos [her newest collection called INDIGO GATHERINGS has just released], I thought about how I could use it even though it is so much darker than any fabrics I design for Fig Tree. And we started talking about how fabulous my orange would look with her blue [it was like one of those old Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup commercials… did you guys ever see those??].
In that moment, an idea was born for me… what if I figured out other joint groupings with designers whose fabric I might not normally even consider pairing with mine? What would that look like? What color combos are different but still “go”? And after a few more brainstorms, this program was quickly born.
Hope you like the idea as much as we do and that you join us! More info below as well as the “OFFICIAL BLURB” :-)…
WHAT: We are so excited to share our newest program with you. Every 2 months we will offer a fabulous little combination bundle of Fig Tree fabrics and another favorite MODA designer [or sometimes even 2] to make up a wonderful new and unique fabric palette. Each palette will be 2-3 fabrics, some of ours and some of theirs to create something new and different… something that we would not have thought of before. We cannot wait to see some of the beauties that we will come up with when we put 2 of us together!
WHEN: Starting in May, 2020 and continuing every two months for a year [6 total bundles for the annual program. Starting in May and then July, September, November, January and March].
INCLUDES: (16) 1/4 yds. fabric prints for a total of 4 yards of fabric plus a pattern that would be a good suggestion for these fabrics. The pattern is just there as a complimentary option… you can of course do anything you like with the fabric bundle as it will be a great palette to start so many different projects!
It is a perfect way to add some new combinations into your stash, a great way to be introduced to some new designs and maybe even colors for you. We promise that each bundle will absolutely coordinate with Fig Tree as half of the bundle will be Fig Tree but will perhaps push out a little bit outside of our regular favorites into some new and fun combinations.
OTHER INFO: The bundle is just a fabric bundle, not a kit. Borders and background will be suggested if you want to make the pattern included look exactly like ours but they will not be included in the bundle. The program is fairly limited so sign up now for the year if you are interested. These bundles will not be offered outside of the program at this time.

MAY PARTNERSHIP: Lisa Bongean of Primitive Gatherings plus a few extra fabrics from Minick & Simpson as well to round out this group.
PALETTE: Oranges, Creams & Denim Blues
Other Fabrics Needed: 4 yds. background & 1 yd. border. Feel free to email us if you are interested in a finishing kit with those fabrics.
REMAINING PALETTES: The rest of the partnerships are a mystery at this point but a few fabric combinations that we think will be included is PINK & GREEN, GREY & RED and other yummy combos!
