Quilter's Secret Exposed:
Co-ordinate fabrics like a pro, every Time!

Discover How...

NOTE: Actual fabric colours may vary compare to colours appear on your monitor, 
because of differeces in settings, brands and other factors outside of our control. 
Pattern placements may be different too because the pieces are cut at random from a whole roll.




"Very nice fabric, beautiful prints. So inspiring!

Thank you so much for shipping my product so quickly. I am looking forward to the weekend when I can begin my project.... oh, can't wait!"

- Anne, a Happy Customer




Let's face it: so many of us dread the thought of selecting fabrics for a quilt, whenever we start a new project......

Because choosing fabrics means stress and agony of having to make decisions on the spot..... which could be pretty permanent....!

You need to consider colours, patterns, and whether something go together.... and after all that, still wondering IF the person you're making the quilt for will like it at all... 


Phew.... talk about hard work, and you haven't started sewing yet...!


Imagine NEVER having another "meh" moment when you're so close to finishing your quilt, only to discover that you're not too sure about the choice of fabrics after all....

Instead, think about how satisfied you'd feel if the end result was just like what you've seen in the magazines or quilt shows, even better....

........ and EVERYONE commented on how amazing you are at choosing fabrics and putting colours together!!!


What if choosing fabric was easier than you think?

Hey, you might as well take credit for being AWESOME at co-ordinating prints for your quilt...
..... seeing you've done the hard work of sewing anyway!


Often the hard part is to come up with know the "how".......


Formally trained as a Fashion / Textile Designer - now a Quilter & Patchwork Teacher - I have spent the last 10 years teaching others and sharing the joy of Patchwork Quilt making.


Recently I had a conversation with a fellow local designer, Nicole Mallalieu (from the "You Sew, Girl!" fame)... about how people are amazed that some of us seem to have "a flair" in choosing colours and fabrics.

Since we both graduated from the same fashion design institute, we can vouch for each other that such "flair" was definitely more "nurture" than "nature" (i.e. none of us are born with the ability... we simply got trained...!!).


That means YOU too can have the "designer's flair".....
...... and actually ENJOY putting colours together!



There is no doubt that it will take some time and practice to get there.....

But the first step in becoming confident in choosing colour is to have the right visual aid at the start... this is the easiest way I know.

The Secret of creating stunning quilts EVERY time....
..... is simply starting with a Fat Eighth Bundle!



 In this case.... you get 40 Fat Eighths!  



Take a closer look.......

This collection is called "Aloha Girl".......





"Inspired by the lush colours and sweet scents of the Hawaiian way of life, Aloha Girl is Fig Tree's interpretation of the islands.

Full of warm floral tones and cool blues, Aloha Girl trasports you to the "Aloha" wayof being and creates an instant vacation in a quilt!

Centred around a vintage Hawaiian tablecloth, this collection just calls you to create a whole outdoor emsemble including cushions, napkins and picnic ware!

With colours like lagoon, orchid and kiwi and print names like Plumeria, Leilani and Kanani, this group brings you straight to summer's warm afternoons and soft evenings. Mahalo!
"

- Joanna Figueroa of Fig Tree & Co.





Here, check out each print in detail......


What on earth is a "Fat Eighth"?


No.... it's not a body part :-)

To define what a "Fat Eighth" is, let's look at a "Fat Quarter" first....

A quarter of a yard gives you 9 inches of fabric, across the width of the roll - so you end up with a long, skinny piece - roughly 9" x 42". Not all that useful, is it?

Now, picture thisinstead: you cut one whole yard off the roll, and then fold this in half lengthwise and widthwise, you will end up with a couple of creases in the form of a cross.

Cut long these two line, and you get four pieces, each measures roughly about 18" x 22". That's a Fat Quarter.

Half that, and you get 9" x 22". That's your Fat Eighth. As opposed to a "skinny 1/8", which is a long strip of fabric that measures 4 1/2" x 42". Isn't the Fat 1/8 piece a much more user-friendly cut?!







Ok, what are Fat Eighth Bundles then?


Fat Eighth Bundles are made of Fat Eighth pieces.... stacked together and tied into a nice tall bundle.

See below - how cute are the Fat 1/8 Bundles, next to Fat 1/4 Bundles........ Adorable, arn't they?


 
Note: Photos shown for size comparison purposes only. See other photos for actual item for sale.

These are 9" x 22" pieces of coordinating fabric that come from the same collection of fabric (also known as a "fabric line", "fabric range" or "story").

Fat Eight Bundles (also called Fat 1/8 Packs) include one of each of the prints, anywhere between 25 to 40 pieces epending on how many different fabrics are included in the range.

Most of the well-known fabric manufacturers - such as Lecien, Kokka, or Moda - release Fat Eighth Packs with every fabric line they produce.

It is an easy way to get variety in your projects. If you love a fabric line, it's a great way to get a decent piece of all of it (and not miss out on any)... in one easy step!



Have you fallen in LOVE with a certain range of fabrics..?

Consider buying multiple packs of Fat Eighths.....


This way you will end up with more fabrics to play with, and this opens up your options when it comes to deciding what quilt design to go with (and what size to make them in).






Why Would I Want a Fat Eighth?


Because it works out BEST value :-)

Think about it.... the alternative is to buy Moda Fat Eighths individually.

Since 1 x Moda Fat Eighth costs around $4.00 each these days...

40 x Moda Fat Eighths will set you back a hefty $160.00.


By ordering your fat eighths from us in a precut bundle means you can save more than $70.00 - that's almost Half Price - and you end up with the complete collection. How good is that?!

If you have a limited budget, this is the BEST way to get the widest variety of prints possible. Brilliant!




How does this Fat Eighth Bundle help me with fabric selection?



That's the BEST thing about Fat 1/8 Packs - you DON'T need to worry about selecting fabrics!

Because Fat Eighth Packs give you the ENTIRE fabric collection, the hard works of co-ordinating fabrics has been done for you...

You see, a fabric collection will typically include coordinating small / medium / and large scale prints, in several different colour ways. This gives your project the designer edge that looks like you've spend AGES on selecting just the right fabrics.

A well-known textile or fabric designer (sometimes a team) would have put in pain-staking effort to make sure that the fabric collection they produce are something that YOU will love, and hopefully inspire you to make quilts, garments and bags that EVERYONE will love!





When you purchase a Fat Eighth Pack, it's like having your OWN expert team of designers or friendly patchworkers picking out fabrics for you...!!

Hey, why not let someone else do the hard work for a change?

Once you have bought a few Fat 1/8 Bundle and made a few things from the fabric, you will find that choosing fabrics and co-ordinating colours / prints become less stressful over time....

In fact, you might even look forward to start putting together your own fabric stash when you go to fabric shops and quilt shows!

This is because as quilters, we all tend to be "visual" learners.....

By working and playing with fabric ranges that have already been put together by professionals, we learn to see what goes together, and what contrast with each other successfully. Another word, we learn by examples....

This is just like having your very own private tuition of colour and design theory, without any pressure and high cost.

Better still, you get to have heaps of fun and make tons of beautiful things for your family and friends too...!!!

(... they're gonna think that you are amazing....)





About the Designer.....


Joanna Figueroa of Fig Tree & Co.


In her own words:

" I clearly remember creating my little colorful painting “masterpieces” in the backyard when I was 9 years old and then walking around the neighborhood convincing all of our neighbors to buy them. I guess in thinking back, you could say that both art and marketing has been in my blood since I was very young!

When we emigrated to the U.S. from Poland in 1975, my dad had a few thousand dollars in his pocket, a desire to make a better home for his family and a passion for creating a small business. My sister and I grew up working for the family business in one way or another until we moved away from home. My dad still loves to talk “business talk” whenever we see him but now it’s Fig Tree that we are talking about!

My desire to create something almost always starts with the color inspiration itself. Beautiful color combinations are everywhere if we can train our eyes to see them. A few colors that we see everyday, suddenly look fresh and new when put together into an unexpected grouping. I love that!

My designs, both for fabric & for quilting, always start with the color palette. I work with vintage fabric swatches, my flower garden, wrapping paper, children’s illustrations from the early part of the last century, flea market finds, antique quilts to start finding colors that speaks to me. The palette dictates the designs themselves and slowly a collection grows. I call myself a hybrid fabric designer. I like to use many different mediums and techniques to create my designs including vintage fabrics, painting, computer, line drawings, just to name a few. "

....and YOU get to enjoy instant success in whatever project you've set your heart on, because the fabrics speak for themselves!



Sounds like you might enjoy playing with Some Fat Eighth?

Now, Let's Get Your Order On Its Way To You!

 


How long will it take to receive my order?

All fully paid orders placed by 5pm Monday to Thursday will be processed overnight and ready to send by our warehouse - normally the next day or following business day.

Orders placed on Friday and Weekends will be processed on Sunday night - because our warehouse operates Monday to Friday except Public Holidays.

Once it leaves our warehouse, the actual time frame is up to the delivery services. This can vary depending on your location and road conditions.

Any delivery time estimates shown are estimates only - so please use it as a guide line.

You'll receive a few email updates from our system as your order progresses, so please stay tuned on these!



secure paymentHow will my order be sent?

We use a dispatch system that works out the most efficient way to send your order.

This way the postage works out fair and reasonable, and your parcel reaches you quickly as well - because we know you can't wait!
 
 
That means your parcel may reach you by either Courier or Aust Post.

In general, larger items tend to be delivered by couriers, while small items tend to go by Aust Post.



How is my postage calculated?

Great question.

Depending on weight and dimension, some times we are able to do Flat Rate across Australia, so the postage is the same no matter where you are.

Other times we use the Built-in Calculated system provided by Aust Post, and your postage is calculated based on YOUR location.



Can I get it delivered to my P.O. Box?

Depends on the item (and its dimensions), because Aust Post have size restrictions and couriers are NOT allowed to deliver to a P.O. Box.

Please check with us when in doubt.

If you have nominated a P.O. box, and the item is within Aust Post size, then it will go by Aust Post. Most of the time, this is the case.

When your item is too big, or being sent directly from our supplier, then we need you to provide a physical address so we can send a courier.



Can I get my order sent to a different delivery address? 

Your sure can!

When you check out, you can choose to ship your order to your billing address or a different address.

Simply choose the second option, and then fill in the shipping address of where you want you parcel sent.

Please double check we have Your Correct Address so your order can find its way to you!




What if courier services are not available in my area?

Some locations are outside of courier services....

In these cases we CAN arrange for your order to be deliverd to your local post office.

But please provide us with a street address (street number & name) - even if it is the only Post Office in town - as if it is an office address.

A phone number would help too - this will avoid delays.



What if I need my order urgently?

No worries, we will do our best. Just let us know.

Please give us as much notice as possible - especially for special occasions like birthdays!

In most cases, we CAN arrange an upgrade from Regular Post to Express Post for a little extra.

Please contact us first so we can update your invoice to show the correct amount.



Do you offer combine shipping?
I want to order more than one item...


Sure! Please "Add to Cart" for all the items you want and let the system work it out for you.

If you're unsure, let us know. A quick message is all we need.
 
 
This way we can double check the postage for you. Simple!




Can I pick up my order?

No. Sorry - unless you're picking up furniture directly from our supplier.

Because most of our items are located in a commercial warehouse - with NO public acess.

There is no shop front - because that's how we can pass on the savings to you!



Some useful things you might want to know:
 
    • Combined Shipping - We are happy to combine shipping for multiple purchases based on the combined weight and dimensions of your items, so add what you like to cart as you go, and check out our shop to see what else you like... you never know what you might find!
