its time to start making the wedding quilt!

My youngest Jake, (who some of you met in Paducah) has asked his girlfriend of many years(since they have been in high school) to “Marry him” last Saturday night…they met us on Sunday at the boat and told us…we then went out for dinner with them and Lauren’s parents, Bill and Gretchen to “celebrate”…it is so nice to come home to good news…here is a pic of the happy couple…other than this news, I have been cleaning closets and working on quilting my all wool quilt along with the BOW!


Keep Stitching! …now what kind of quilt am I going to make for Jake and Lauren…should it be “my style” or theirs…maybe a combination….but I better start now…there is no date yet but you know how fast it will be here…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. Lisa, I am so happy for you and your family. Enjoy every moment of the preparations for this marriage. It seems like such a long time ago when I was in your shoes! Whatever you make for a wedding quilt, I know that it will be wonderful! I am having such fun with the BOW. Thank you for all of your inspiration and good service.

    PS I wish that you would come to NC for a workshop/class! I am giving your info to two guild program chairpersons.
