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!

  3. Opps, I don’t think my comment posted. Love Primative Gatherings. So fortunate to be in Des Moines and get to fondle their wool, thread and fabric:)

  4. Lisa…
    Love the little thread catcher, it is SO cute! I love your new fabric line too. Looking forward to the Christmas blog this year. You guys will be doing it, right?

  7. Lisa,
    So glad that Moda has done this country fair. There were so many designers that I had never known and it has been great. The little thread catcher is a really cute pattern. Thanks forthe recipe!


  8. Hi Lisa, I drive the pet store where you got your beautiful boys in Temecula. I want to take a class with you the next time you visit. Eileen

  9. Oh that thread catcher is just too dang cute to use just for bits of thread! I have images of placing one by each plate on my holiday table with a clementine inside! Oh if only I had just a few more hours in my day … Thanks for the adorable pattern.

  10. I was never interested in primitive quilts and wool until I saw your quilt you made out of wool from your flower garden. I had to have it and am still working on it. I had never used wool before – what a nice surprise! I love working with wool and you gave me the inspiration to start 🙂 Thank you!

  11. The puppies are so cute! I keep all of my threads for the birds to use in their nests, so I will make a use your thread catcher. I hope to win some of your fabric/wool.
    Thank you! See you again in Cincinnati next year.

  12. Hi! Greetings from Finland! The quilts looks so fantatsic! I love them! The colors are so nice! It’s so nice to find other quilters from other countries! 🙂
