Photos from the Gatherings Open House…


Well I promised I would show all of you “The Gathering” as far as it was on the Open House.  We are still going through the internet orders and will pick a winner soon….for the free weekend Jan-March.  It is snowing here today…I think our first or at least the prettiest snowfall we have had yet…I think some of you CA and Southern Girls should come to The Gathering and visit the snow this winter…wouldn’t that be cool…you could just look at it through the window and sew away….then go back to your warm home weather after the weekend…here are the pics..everything looks a litle brighter than it is because of all those daylight lights…I missed a few shots but here is what I have for now…I will fill in the voids later…you will be sick of me talking about it in the next couple of weeks…we are working on the headboards for the upper rooms…the bathrooms on the lower level and then just a little more tweeking and hunting for bedside tables and such….curtains and you know…stuff!….LB

I live on a lake in beautiful Butte Des Morts, WI. I have three sons: Lance (forever 29), Luke 33, Jake 32, and two grand-babies, Little Man and O-Bug. I've been married to the love of my life Nick, since 1998 when we started our crazy adventure together! I am a quilter, rugger, and gardener. I also love to cook when I get the chance. Thanks for visiting and supporting Primitive Gathering Quilt Shop where I try to bring you the best Moda fabrics and wool projects anywhere!

  1. Looks just wonderful! I love the farmhouse table – did you make it? Or can you tell me where you got it? I’m hoping to make one soon – we need a table big enough for 8 to sit at – right now six is a tight squeeze – and I thought this style would be so perfect! Lemme know please!

  2. Lisa,
    It looks amazing.
    I would love one day to come for a stay.
    In my dreams but you never know.

  3. IT’S SNOWING ON YOUR WEBPAGE!!!! I love it! Keep up the great work, Lisa… you are incredible!

  4. I just love everything about your new Gatherings Place!! Also those quilts!! WoW! it is so inviting! Would love to attend sometime!!

  5. Oh, Lisa, you out did yourself. Give compliments to all those involved. It looks great and so very inviting! Can’t wait ’til June when we are booked. It would be fun to come in the winter but then you never know about those plane delays because of weather. And I would hate to be sitting in an airport anywhere when I could be sewing at The Gathering!

    Again, terrific job. Will look forward to see the final tweakings!

  6. That is an absolutely GORGEOUS retreat house. I’d love to just move in! And the quilt on the wall with the carpenter’s star and snowman in the lower corner–do you have that pattern?!! I NEED it! Thanks for the tour.

  7. Looks amazing Lisa – you’ve done a wonderful job making it look warm, cozy and inviting. I sure hope to make it up there sometime with the peeps and woolies, what a great time we would have.


  8. The Gathering is beautiful! Can you tell us more about the quilt in the large front room? It is black background with red, green and cream appliques with the sawtooth type border…

    I sure wish we lived closer…I know a group that would be there ALOT! Best of luck with your new endeavor….and to think this all started with dying wool in your backyard!

  10. So much fun to see it in the works and now the finished – well almost – finished product; you have outdone yourself!! My hat is off to you and your team!! The six of us are so excited about our week long retreat at The Gathering!!!!

    Love the snowflakes on the blog!


  11. Lisa and Nick- Wow!!!! looks great What a wonderful job… I would love to win… Wow!!!! Merry Christmas…Emily Gail

  12. Thanks for sharing. It is beautiful. Love all the quilts, especially the snowman one. I can’t wait to come visit in November. Would love to come up this winter from Georgia if my name gets drawn.

  13. I am with Kathi, I would love to know if you have the pattern for the applique and sawtooth quilt.
    I am so impressed with all your work. Everyone is so lucky to have such an outstanding place to go to. Bravo.

  14. Your retreat rooms look darling. I am so envious of the ladies who commented that they would be attending a retreat in the near future. The rooms are cozy, quilts are beautiful, all accommodations are just perfect. Thanks for sharing!

  15. Hey- thanks for the pics! I think we should seriously consider moving in…. I am calling the red room and the gold chair! I LOVE the bathroom too!!! What a difference that kitchen is! I remember u scraping off tile – wasn’t it? I’m sooo excited for you!!! Stacy 🙂

  16. Love the pictures of The Gathering. Stopped for the open house at the shop on Saturday and purchased your nine patch book(along with other things) and can’t wait to get started on those. They look addicting. Had my husband with me (out in the car) and he didn’t feel good so I couldn’t stop at the Gathering. Hope to come to retreat there soon.

  17. Wow, everything looks wonderful and what nice quilts.. I am sure this will be a great place to go and have a good workshop.. You have totally outdone yourselves..

  18. Amazing!!! I would so love to visit!! Do you sell the pattern with the large snowflake and snowman on the lower part of the quilt that’s hanging on the wall? Would really love to make that one.
