Christmas Figs – New Book from Fig Tree Quilts with It’s Sew Emma; Enter to Win 1 of 5

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

THIS GREAT GIVEAWAY CLOSED 08/21/18. THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO PARTICIPATED.

We missed the traditional Christmas in July festivities this year, so we’re celebrating this month with the debut of a brand new holiday-themed book from Joanna Figueroa of Fig Tree Quilts. The Christmas Figs Block of the Month book is Joanna’s first with It’s Sew Emma, the sister site of Fat Quarter Shop. This lovely quilt is layered with 10 traditional blocks and finishes at a generous 78½” x 96½”. Read on to get a sneak peek inside the book, and enter to win one of five free books from our friends at It’s Sew Emma. 

The Christmas Figs quilt is designed to be created over 12 months, but of course, you’re allowed to finish faster if you just can’t wait for the stunning outcome. It’s rated for everyone from confident beginners to experienced quilters as it uses basic piecing techniques as well as some appliqué.

As a special bonus, each block is paired with an extra project to add even more warmth to the winter season, such as table toppers, pillows, mini quilts, tree skirts, and more! 

Joanna’s Christmas Figs fabric is in-stock and available now in yardage and pre-cut bundles at Fat Quarter Shop. Shop the entire collection. We’ve always been huge fans of Fig Tree Quilts fabric here at Sew4Home. Joanna has an amazing eye for blending saturated and muted colors to achieve the perfect modern vintage appeal.

Take a look at the short video below to see the quilt and companion projects in a magical holiday setting.

If you’re not in the holiday spirit quite yet, have no fear. The quilt and accompanying projects are absolutely gorgeous and timeless. Although rendered here in rich tones of pomegranate and mistletoe, the classic blocks and designs would lend themselves to any of your favorite fabric collections.

This step-by-step soft cover book has great color illustrations that make everything very easy to follow. When complete, it’s a quilt classic that will take you through generations of holidays to come.

You can order the book directly from It’s Sew Emma or Fat Quarter Shop or find it at your favorite quilt shop. At just $26.98 it’s a huge value. With 10 blocks plus 10 companion projects, that’s just a little over a dollar per project!
