Welcome to your second installment of our 2023-24 FIGS & FRIENDS COLLAB program! And if you’re new around here or want more information about the FIGS & FRIENDS program itself, scroll to the bottom for answers to some FAQs!
This month’s mix is a variety of blues from my FRUIT COCKTAIL collection, along with Betsy Chutchian’s AMELIA’S BLUES, and a few soft blues from THE SHORES by Brenda Riddle. We have added in a cream print from Bonnie & Camille’s SUNDAY STROLL and Bunny Hill’s PRAIRIE DAYS to round out the 16 fabrics.
This beautiful collection of an array of blues really landed at the perfect time for some beachy feeling sewing, I think! And the SEA ANEMONE pattern couldn’t be a better pairing for this summery project.
Click the item hyperlink to be taken directly to the shop. All items listed are while supply lasts! If you click on it and you find nothing, that unfortunately means the item(s) have sold out at this time.
Please note: if you purchase an “extra bundle” & are not in the program, the SEA ANEMONE [Catalina version/the red one] pattern needs to be purchased separately.
*** EDIT: All OCEAN BLUE bundles and finishing kits are now sold out. You can of course always grab the pattern [links below] and start collecting blues and creams. Grab the image of the “mock up” above and drag it to your desktop as a guide for inspiration. In terms of fabric, we started with the ones we noted above under “collection info”. For the FINISHING KIT, we used IVORY BELLA, BLUEBELL BELLA and a favorite aqua print from the STITCHED collection. For BACKING, so many different blues and light aquas would work wonderfully. ***
BACKING KITS will also be in the shop, on the FEATURED PRODUCTS home screen. We have 2 to choose from – PAISLEY and FLORAL.
******** INFO ON THE PROGRAM ITSELF ********
This is the 2023/2024 program and sign-ups are full and closed. Sign-ups for the next year’s program usually occur at the beginning of the year and the best place to stay “in the know” on our offerings is by signing up for our newsletter, which you can do HERE.
We do always try to secure extra fabric for many of the curated bundles and will work to have a few extra bundles each time to offer to those of you who missed out or who might just be interested in that *one* color bundle.
WHAT: Every 2 months, we will offer a fabulous little combination bundle of Fig Tree Fabrics and another favorite MODA designer [or sometimes even 2 … or more!] to make up a wonderful new and unique fabric palette. Each palette will be 2-3 colors, some of ours and some of theirs to create something new and different…something that we would not have thought of before. It’s always fun to see some of the beauties that we come up with when we put 2 [or more] of us together!
WHEN: Starting in May 2023, and continuing every 2 months for one year [6 total bundles for the annual program]. So the bundles will be shipped in the following months: May, 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 the curated fabric bundle. The pattern is just there as a complementary 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 to your stash, a great way to be introduced to some new designs, and maybe even new colors for you. We promise that each bundle will absolutely coordinate with Fig Tree (as half of the bundle will be Fig Tree), but may perhaps push us 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 and offered as a FINISHING KIT and BACKING KIT if you want to make the pattern included look exactly like one of our mockups, but they will not be included in the bundle.
