Country Fair Blog Post…

This little Piggy did not make it to the “fair” this year…but I love the fair…the animals, the quilts and food entries are my favorite…I have also seen many concerts at our County Fair…too many to name, but I love going, I also think one of my first dates was going to the fair and the tractor pulls..it was so much fun…I think I was once a farmgirl in a previous life…anyway that is a whole other conversation but I will have to make a promise to myself next year to take time to go to the fair…here are some pictures from a previous fair…

I want to thank Lissa from Moda for putting all this together it is a lot of fun and she keeps us all on our toes…who knows what she will come up with next…but it is really fun to work with such creative people…here are the ???’s that I have answers to…                                                                                                       What’s your favorite fair food?  Fried Cheese! I am from WI

What’s your guilty pleasure?  Massages…I wish I could get one a month!

What’s on your bucket list? I would want to spend a week at a Spa Resort…like Canyon Ranch…that would be awesome…someday…    

 What inspires your work?  Antique quilts and my garden, nature and architecture.    

What movie do you watch again & again?  Pearl Harbor, Pretty Woman & Titanic

What’s on your night stand?   Two pictures, one of my Dad & me and then one of my three boys when they were little making a sand castle on the beach.

Do you sing when no one else is listening?  Yup…right now I am singing Dirt Road Anthem and Don’t you wanna stay…I am getting ready to see Jason Aldean someday….I will know all the words…by then.

Tell us about your pet…Jeets (Jeter, after Derek Jeter of the NY Yankees) and Prez (Presley after the KING).  The two handsome dudes are the best dogs we have ever had…come and see them when you visit Primitive Gatherings!

How many quilts have you made?  A lot…but not enough yet….

Below is my project for the Blog Hop…a little “Thread Catcher” for all of your thread ends or tails….  My block pattern and recipe are also here Lisa recipe and block  These cookies are great and easy to make…they contain oil instead of butter and only have a few ingredients!  The Blocks we have all contributed have been stitched in a quilt made by Lissa A….here it is it is so beautiful…it uses a lot of fabrics from our latest lines….mine is the top left…also here are a bunch of my new friends…these Moda girls are a blast to hang out with at market!

Now for the giveaways…Moda has given me a couple of bundles from my Little Gatherings and Wool & Needle Flannels to give to you wonderful ladies who visit this blog…I will also add some more to the loot…so there will be 12 prizes total…We will do a random picks from the comments you leave…I will post winners on the last day of the blog hop and you have a week to contact me, with you info…thanks for blogging…all for now…LB

    I love the little thread catchers, I need to make one for my mom and myself. She hand pieces quilts and I am working on my first grandmothers flower garden and that thread catcher will come in handy. Oh yes and I will have to try the cookie recipe…always a sucker for a cookie and a hot cup of coffee. Best wishes.

    I also always liked the county fair, and since our kids were in 4-H and we worked in the Parents booth with the band, we were almost always there! I love the little thread catcher! That would make a great gift for my guild friends for Christmas!
    As a p.s., I finally finished my Primitive Garden quilt……..I absolutely LOVE IT!

    I LOVE this project! I am always leaving little piles of embroidery thread around the house and it drives my DH to distraction. I’m going to get to work on this today! Thanks for the chance at some Little Gatherings. I recently made a quilt of valor quilt and used some of it in there. Perfect!

    My bucket list has on it – travel to Wisconsin to Primitive Gatherings to shop. I’ll make it, until then I’ll just enjoy your the eye candy you give us and buy on line. Love the pups!

    The puppies are so cute! My sister is a big Jeeter/Yankees fan. Is Prez singing? By the way, the quilt is gorgeous.

  44. September 30, 2011 at 5:33 am

    That thread catcher is a brilliant idea. I end up with a little pile of threads next to my work, then my daughter comes near the table, it all gets bundled up and moved out of the way, and I spend my next hand sewing session sorting all the rubbish thread ends from the good bits of embroidery thread!
    Thanks for sharing.

    I have so loved reading all the posts about the fairs! When we lived in Maine, they had the best county fairs and we went every fall to one or two. These posts sure get me pining for all the smells, tastes and eye candy! Thank you for the little thread catcher. It’s just adorable and a quick and easy project. Have a blessed day!!

  46. September 30, 2011 at 5:38 am

    Those dogs are very sweet – it is a fantastic photo of them – and I love the Bakers Dozen quilt – it has turned out beautifully

    I didn’t get to the fair this year either and we have so many around us to choose. But am having fun visiting all the sites in this Country Fair Blog Hop. A great idea!

  50. September 30, 2011 at 5:47 am

    I think this is my first visit to your blog. Your pup is so cute, glad the Benadryl worked. I didn’t know you could give it to a dog. I love flannel for quilt backs, but I have never thought of making a whole quilt out of one. Not that much real cold weather here in NC.

Thank you for the tutorial, I’ve already printed it out & hope to make two tonight for two friends who are visiting tomorrow. And thank you (and Moda) for the giveaways! Fingers crossed that I win (which is making it very hard to type!) lol

    Great post! How did you get the boys to pose like that? I don’t think there are enough Milk Bones in America to have mine sit still. Mine are a little bigger at 95lbs. each. We didn’t get them until they were 1 year and 2-1/2 years old (Father and son). We had a little “un-training” to do first!

    Lisa, your dogs were just so cute in that picture. They are really growing! Thanks for the pattern and direction for the thread catcher. I am thinking of a variation in wool. Maybe I’ll use it for my floss stash as I work on a project, it’s too pretty for catching just thread scraps. I love your newest fabric lines, can’t wait for the next! Thanks for a chance to win!

    These County Fair blogs have been so much fun to read– really takes me back to my childhood when going to the fair every year was SUCH fun… the rides and games, the livestock exhibits, the fair food! I’ve entered some of my projects over the years and have won a few ribbons– even won a “Best in Show” ribbon a few years ago for a photograph of an old, weathered mountain fence! I love the Fair and I love winning prizes!! ;-) Thanks for giving 12 of us a chance to win one of your wonderful gifts!!! :-)

    I think it is safe to say that I am your biggest fan :) I have been following you forever and truly love everything you do. It’s like you read my mind and then design for me personally…he, he, he. I am currently trying to finish your 2011 Summer BOW and am hoping I can get it done be the end of this year. I really did try to do a block a week, but after 3 weeks fell behind (story of my life).

    So glad you are now a Moda designer; they picked a winner when they picked you! Keep up the good work and know that you continue to inspire not only me, but thousands (hmmm, maybe millions) of others.

    I LOVE the picture of the dogs! My favorite building at the Minnesota State Fair is the Creative Activicies building, with all the quilts, handwork, and baked items. Thanks for sharing the Little Thread Catcher pattern. This will make for a great “just a little extra” Christmas gift for some quilting friends. I LOVE your Little Gathering line so much I already have two fat quarter bundles, plus yardage to make both the Little Northwinds and 45 and Life To Go quilts (I turned 45 this year, so it will be fitting). The Wool & Needle Flannel fabrics look beautiful, would love to have some of that line too. Keep up the great work that you are doing, it is appreciated!

    FINALLY! The blog post I’ve been waiting for! I love, love, love your blog, patterns, and fabric….just my style! Applique is my favorite technique, especially WOOL applique, and I love how much your new flannels look like wool. I’ve been searching locally for your Little Gatherings line with no luck, so if I don’t win it ;) guess I’ll have to order it online! Actually I’d be thrilled to win any of your designs!!! Thank you for the cute thread catcher pattern.

    Those quilts at the fair are so pretty. Your thread catcher pattern is great. I used the new laminates for the inside of mine to make the threads fall out easier when you empty them.

  246. September 30, 2011 at 9:09 am

    I loved your picture from the country fair. Quilts and baking — maybe the best things at the fair. I’ve never entered a quilt, but when I was a teen, I entered a fudge-frosted chocolate layer cake and won a ribbon. Cute thread catcher. Beautiful fabrics!

    Too bad you didn’t get to the fair this year, but your photo of the quilts from last year is great. So much creativity in each one, they certainly deserve to be winners. Thanks for the thread catcher pattern. I usually just throw everything on the floor and vacuum it all up when I finish my project.

    Primitive Gatherings is one of my favorite online shops to visit. And I do so regularly. I have enjoyed reading about Presley and Jeter. What do they do when you are on the road with teaching and shows? I guess that is none of my business–I was just curious. I love the flannels and the printed muslins–great stuff! Thanks for sharing

    Love the thread catcher….I’ve always wanted to make one! Now I have no excuse! I’m anxious to see/feel the flannels. Little Gatherings is a classic to say the least! I’m hoping to meet the dogs when I visit the shop and stay at the retreat house in a couple of weeks. I can hardly wait to get to WI where it is cool! You may be looking forward to coming to Georgia where it is still hot, although cooling off this weekend finally!

    A thread catcher! That’s so awesome! Just last night I was stitching and I was telling my husband how I never have a spot for my thread ends (they usually end up on the floor). I am making one of these tonight! Hmmm, maybe I’ll make more than one. I have more than one stitching spot.
    Jeets & Prez are adorable…..I love your picture of them. Looks like one of them is singing to you.

    Oh how I love your new line! I haven”t decided which quilt to make with, something with lots of stars I think! And the sweet puppies, thank you for the wonderful giveaways!

  437. September 30, 2011 at 1:06 pm

    The quilt display is the only reason I go to the fair! Although this year I wandered through the vendor building and came home with……an Oliso iron! I use it when I make quilts, uh, yeah, so, it sort of relates to going, uh, to the fair to see the, uh, quilts. (There’s a connection there somewhere I’m sure.)

    Hi! Your puppies are sooo cute. They look so happy. Really like yor project too and it’s something we all need and much better looking than a paper bag – ESP at a class or retreat. Cute. I looked at the receipe and it sounds real yummy so maybe I can talk my daughter into making some as I don’t cook anymore. Thank you very much for the project, receipe, the pattern to your Moda block and a chance to win some wonderful fabric.

  484. September 30, 2011 at 3:46 pm

    What terrific quilts! Thanks for sharing them. My fingers are crossed.

  485. September 30, 2011 at 3:50 pm

    Love the pictures of the quilts at the fair, definitely would love to meet all the food that one the ribbons in the showcase. Never had fried cheese, might have to try that next. Thank You for the threatcatcher pattern, the block and the recipe. I wonder if those frosted oatmeal cookies are as good as the fried cheese.

  486. 499 VickiT
    September 30, 2011 at 3:51 pm

    That’s a great thread catcher. I’ve never seen one like that and really like this one because it sits on the table. The others have always had the part hanging over the table and those I am always knocking onto the floor. This is wonderful. Thank you. Those cookies look very interesting with a name like ‘self frosting’. That sounds awesome in my book.

    I LOVE those two puppies in the picture. Such an adorable pair of cute little faces.
    And oh my gosh, all those quilts at the top of your post are beautiful. Wonderful job on those.
    Thank you for the great tutorial and recipe.

    I love these opportunities to learn more about our fellow quilters and have a giggle and a chuckle when a nerve is twanged cos we really have a lot in common. I had to work hard to read your answers (cunning, I tucked that away for use) cos they were written in a similiar tone. Your dogs have the prettiest faces, looked like one was singing along too. I bet they love to sing with you. Thank-you for the biscuits with oil rather than butter (My DH has cholesterol issues and I wanted a recipe for his lunches…that is an answer to prayer, right there.) Thanks for taking me on a neat trip to visit your life,I appreciate your hospitality and had fun here. Keep making beautiful quilts…

  521. September 30, 2011 at 5:36 pm

    I keep hearing about fried cheese- when I get to the States I’m going to have some of this, it sounds delicious!

    The thread catcher is seriously cute, thank you for the pattern. And making those cookies sounds doable for me, I like the idea of oil and not butter in cookies- they must be healthy!

I love it! Our fair is going on right now here in Yakima, Washington. Sad to say I haven’t been for so many years…I was told about an absolute beautiful quilt at the fair made by and 18 year old boy…it was his senior project. I hope my friends take a picture of it. Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh how I wished I lived closer ….we need a quilt shop here in Yakima just like your awesome shop…..visiting your quilt shop is definitely on my bucket list!!!!

    Hahaha! “How many quilts have you made? Lots, but not enough.” That just cracks me up because it is SO. TRUE! And all of those quilts in that first picture are just lovely. I adore the chicken quilt! It would be perfect for my kitchen…. ;)

  545. September 30, 2011 at 7:05 pm

    oh yeh, there is always more room for some yummy fabric bundles. My loot is big, but I just love me some more fabric.

    Thanks for sharing the pattern for the cute little thread catcher. Great idea. I’d love the chance to win some of your great fabric. I’ve already pieced and quilted the pattern “45 and Life to Go” as a store sample at the Fig Leaf in Fort Collins, Co, but would love more to play with. Love your designs.

    Hi Lisa – love your new fabric line – was in your shop yesterday checking them out – need to figure yardage and I’ll be back to pick some up – esp like 1041 17 – that deeper tan is way too cool. I did mange to pick up fabric for other projects underway – my DPQs (dreamed planned quilts) are definitely getting out-of-hand. The Moda blog list is wonderful but I find myself shooting through an hour just like that looking at all these designers and their blogs, patterns etc. The sun is finaly out so need to decorate the yard with mums and pumpkins. Thanks for all your inspiration and I love fairs too, esp the state fair.

    In the excitement of creating, i like to let my threads fall where they may and sweep up afterwards, but your threadcatcher is so cute I decided to make one to keep in the family room to collect all the needles and pins and spools that seem to turn up there.
    Thanks, Lisa, for all the wonderful designs you create and for all the inspiration.

    Hey Lisa,
    I have been reading your blog for some time, but didn’t realize your shop is close to Mt Calvary where my brother is a Spanish teacher at St. Lawrence Seminary. (I live in NC) I can’t believe I didn’t get a map out to see how close you are to St. Lawrence. On my next visit to The Hill I will be sure to come over to your shop. I love the wool projects you have to offer. You have such a great design sense.

    Love the thread catcher, need to make one of those as I always have threads on the floor… I also read the post about your little baby getting stung by a bee.. poor little thing… My little Maltese looks that way when she gets her distemper shot… we get down the road and she starts to swell… I know this is terrible, but I laugh at her she looks so cute all puffy…Now the vet gives her Benadryl shot right after her yearly shots..

    I also love fairs & head straight for the needlework displays first thing. My husband is always so accomodating with this & goes with me. We have a very small fair here; my very favorite was the Indiana state fair in Indianapolis (when we lived in Indiana)….so many beautiful quilts & needlework of all kinds. And, we enjoyed having lamb burgers….so good with fresh lamb.
