Mirabelle Feature: Hugs



A bit more Mirabelle goodness for you this Monday…

Up today- HUGS.

Our HUGS pattern is a perfect way to use that Layer Cake you are hoarding! Add in a bit from a charm pack and you have almost all you need for the entire quilt!


… super quick and simple blocks. Perfect for any level of quilter.



 … yummy quilting







… we turned one block inside for fun!



… and this is the Christmas version for those of you who are crazy organized and are thinking of those kinds of things already!

FABRIC: Quilt is made with 1 Layer Cake and 1 Charm Pack, along with a coordinating middle border and background. That's all folks!

SIZE: 78" x 89"

KITS: HERE is info on the kit.  We have now sent out all the pre-orders and have almost gone through all of our extras…. but we do have some still left. One might just have your name on it 🙂

    I love the block turned inside for fun – I made a quilt with this block once with no sashing and it looked totally different – love the sashing idea – and the turned in block – I might have to make another

    I received my Hugs kit that I did during the Christmas pre-order just today….oh my, it is lovely! The colors are super and the pattern looks like a quick and easy stitch!

    sometimes its just small creative changes that completely changes a quilt and makes it unique!

    I just finished reading your post about your Babcia. It touched me to the core. My grandchildren have always lived so far away from me but not as far as Poland. I hope they will feel my love for them as you felt the love from your Babcia.

    You could always correspond with them… the old fashioned way, through letters… then they would have something to treasure later. I am sure that they will have those special memories and bonds regardless of how far they are!

    So glad that you are liking the kit. The pattern is really simple and it is indeed an easy stitch, I promise!

    Happy sewing!

    Joanna! I love Mirabelle. I got some at spree last fall, and made a quilt called “Chain Reaction” from Swirley Girl’s new book. I will definitely be using it for other projects. Love your fabrics! Come see my quilt: http://amaidenhairfern.blogspot.com/2014/03/chain-reaction-in-figs.html

    It can’t be said too often…..your fabrics are simply the greatest….the colors are uplifting and your design sense is enviable to say the very least.
    I would love to have your talent just for a day!
    All The Best,
    Nona D.

    I know this says 78″ x 89″ but what size bed does it fit?

  10. Joanna | 31st Mar 14

    well beds are so different these days with pillow tops and not and some people like a lot of overhang and some dont, that I really recommend you measure the bed you want and find the measurements that you want. A standard twin quilt is 64 x 89 and a standard full is 84 x 89. Hope that helps.

    Hi Joanna

    I’m a kiwi fan but having trouble with your Hexie pattern. Usually I have no trouble with your patterns but this one has me a bit stuck. I noticed you said you would post a tutorial. Will you pleeeeeease?

    Hi, Joanna. 🙂

    I have been a fan of Fig Tree fabrics and patterns since I discovered “Strawberry Fields” a few years ago. It was love at first sight! I posted links to your blog, your shop, and your Berry Sweet Bag pattern on my blog today (cutest bag ever!). I also put a link to your blog on my blog’s sidebar. Thank you!!! Hugs, Lisa 🙂
