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…

Vintage Halloween Bundle… It’s That Time!

Welcome to the Vintage Halloween Bundle for 2021! WITH A SPECIAL BONUS PANEL… Every year for the last 6 years we have collected a few of our favorite oranges, greys, creams and warm blacks from a variety of our own collections as well as other MODA designers and we have “curated” a special Vintage Halloween Bundle. We can now officially say that these are an annual tradition! We thought that perhaps you all would have had enough of our vintage take on Halloween by now… but you gave us a resounding thumbs up for another bundle this year! I know so many of you who have told me that you collect these, one every year to build your “vintage Halloween” collection. So this is for you! The colors are our version of Halloween- soft, warm blacks, butterscotch oranges, creams, soft greys… Vintage Halloween…

PATTERN SHOWCASE: ACORN WOODS

If you are a Fig Tree fan from over the years, you will already know this a thousand times over… but I LOVE AUTUMN. Love, love, love it. I love the food, the sweaters, the boots, the feel of the air, the leaves. I love the colors and the quilts. And the orange. And don’t get me started on pumpkin spice. I love the orange and the caramel and the cinnamon tones… bring on the fall colors friends! So when it came time to design something for our fall LITTLE BOX subscription [ a pattern that is always first offered to box subscribers and then released to the general public] I knew it had to have orange and feel like fall. But I wanted something “early fall”, a transitional quilt that could be brought out in August and didn’t feel like it was…

A Scrapbook of Quilts Sew Along: Final Week & Recap

Finger Update: Thanks for SO MANY of you who have messaged and emailed me about my finger mishap. Lets just say… I don’t talk and rotary cut anymore! It is not pretty but it is definitely healing okay. After a week of dressings and bandages, etc, we are finally starting to get something that looks like a scab!

We have our own exclusive special embroidery scissors my friends and I am in love!! They are the perfect 4″ size for so many things and the teardrop shaped handles ensure that my fingers never get squished or cramped… handle perfection!
