new photos of “the gathering”

here are a few updated photos for you to see…I still need to decorate  few of the bedrooms a little more, but I like to find treasures and not just hang stuff on the walls…so this will take a bit to find just the right things…but here is what is done so far…i realize i missed a few things…but will get them on when I get home…I am in Nebraska having a blast with these great girls/quilters.  Today is my last lecture/trunkshow and then I am on myway to CA….Road to CA that is…see you there….

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. Perfect representation of The Gathering. It really is “A Home Away from Home”
    It’s been a long road to this point and you should be so proud!!

  6. Lisa – you’ve done a great job with the place. I know it’s been a dream of yours – and all quilters! – for some time now. Great space to create. Kudos.

  7. Hi Lisa,

    Looks so warm and comfortable! I can hardly wait until our September retreat!!

  10. Lisa, What a beautiful space! It is so perfect~~it made me long to be on retreat there! (but I think I’m a little bit far…) Keep the pictures coming and congratulations!!

  11. After passing by the Retreat quite frequently is is awesome to see what you have done to the inside. i hope one day to get back into quilting and to visit the retreat. you and everyone involved have done an awesome job in bringing it all together. Congrats…

  12. Oh my goodness, how beautiful. Makes me wish I lived closer or at least had a quilting buddy that did. I’d love to come visit but live too far away. Enjoy!

  13. The Gathering looks so warm and inviting. What a great job of decorating and planning.

    I just got my latest copy of American Patchwork and Quilting and saw one of your wool penny creations featured. Congratulations.

  14. Love the pictures you have posted! WOW! Question: The picture of the lady with the candle mats of the pumpkins and christmas trees: are those patterns that you have or can you tell me what company they are from?? LOVE THEM! Keep posting pictures!

  15. Love the pictures and would love to stay there sometime but live quite a ways away. Might have to make that a cousin reunion retreat spot. I love the quilts on the beds especially in the Liberty Star room. Could you tell me about the blue striped fabric. Whose line is it and is there any way to still get that fabric. Love your blog and shopping on-line.

  16. Please consider a webnear or classes on line! I would love to get some of your tips and direction., could you ever come to florida?
