2 Cents…Fig Tree STyLe

okay…so if you follow us via Facebook (if you don’t feel free to like us!  Click the “F” to the right)…you know that we did up a new 2 Cents table topper…our original had been made using Luna Notte, a lovely floral line by 3 Sisters.  it was a little bit majestic, a little bit floral, a little bit elegant–or take a look at the picture below.  this lovely topper has been sold out for months…the actual topper even found a home!2 cents3

so i was trying to think of a new Fig Tree project using these mixed charm packs…i saw this pattern sitting on the table and knew that it would be perfect.  mom pieced it up today then i quilted it and mom bound it.  we opted not to wash it because it lays SO nice!  i just kept taking pictures of it…it is SO pretty.  charm pack squares are from an assortment of Fig Tree lines including:  A Day in the Country, Whimsy, Millhouse Inn, Butterscotch and Rose, Cinnamon Stars, Buttercream and Fig, Dandelion Girl, Urban Indigo, Folklorique, and Pattiserie.

2Don’t worry…i swear i didn’t eat the strawberry shortcake off the table topper.

we have kits cut and ready…they will include a mixed charm pack (each one is unique but including Fig Tree and coordinates…meaning a tad of Bunny Hill prints, A Whisper of Roses, and possibly French General–but lovely, whimsical, and wonderful all the same!  there is a tad of Bunny Hill in our sample if you look close) and some yardage for the border and binding…which is NOT a Fig Tree print but from the lovely Whisper of Roses line by Maywood.  kits are $17 and includes the binding…pattern is $4.25.

also…remember that HuGe poster panel that accompanies Quilt MN 2013?  it is something like 20 x 36 inches…well, we have come up with a really good idea on how to make it wall art without making a wall hanging.  more on that in the next week or so.
