From Our House to Yours FREE pattern

We are eagerly anticipating the shipment of our brand new Christmas collection any day now from MODA and to say that we are excited would be an understatement. It came out so good you guys! I know it feels so strange to be talking about Christmas in the middle of the summer but that is the way of the fabric world. Christmas fabric needs to arrive to shops during the summer so that everyone can plan and prepare for the holiday madness at the end of the year. So CHRISTMAS STITCHED is due to arrive here sometime soon and one of the ways we are celebrating is with this simple throw quilt that utilizes the stitchery panel in the collection. This is what the “panel” fabric looks like below. It is running yardage with a few of the main stitchery panels and a bunch of individual motifs as…

Medallion Sampler: Bella Solids Finish

This was one of those projects that we dreamt up as a simple way to create a sampler that would work in a variety of different colorways. This way stores and friend groups could pick their own fabrics and create their own sampler journey. We have some Fig Tree friends who are working on it in Christmas, in Halloween and in scrappy versions. For our version, I really wanted to stay with the Bella Solids that we had chosen for the cover photo. Slowly over the last year we have been working on this piece by piece and it is finally done. Cheryl and I pieced it in the studio and sent it off to Marion to give it her fabulous quilt finish! It never ceases to amaze me, how much the quilting REALLY brings a quilt top to life. I am in love and it is perfect for summertime…
