Summer Block of the Week….the sneak peek is here….

I am glad that there is so much interest in this Summer’s BOW…so many calls, emails and questions but I finally have something to share with you…thanks for being excited and patient with what we are doing here at Primitive Gatherings…

This will be your only sneak peek into this years Summer Block of the Week….

Here is the info as I know it today…The blocks will be 10″, my Wool & Needle Flannels will be the backgrounds and setting and borders…three will be used in the quilt. There will be 12 blocks, 6 setting blocks and a simple border. The quilt will finish somewhere around 52×66…i will guarantee it will not be this exact size so no planning on this…this is the ONLY info I know right now and what is below….

If you sign up for the Summer BOW…you are agreeing to receive 12 blocks. The first block will be $25 and will include all the flannel for the 12 blocks.  Weeks 2-12 will be $12.50.  (I so wanted to keep it at $10 but cannot do it this year.  Sorry and I hope this doesn’t change your mind.  I have never raised my wool prices in my store since opening it in 2003, and I think I will be forced to do it this year.)

My inspiration for this years BOW comes from a picture of an antique quilt that I have had hanging around for a long time in my inspiration file… it’s time to recreate this and do my thing to it…as I was stitching the block last night I was thinking…i really want  this look old and folky…like a pioneer woman made it…she didn’t have enough green so she used a little blue…she didn’t have any thicker thread to do wool appliqué with so she unraveled a burlap sack and used that to blanket stitch around the wool appliqués…you get it?.  This quilt will be simple, folky, fun and will not take a bunch of different threads…I have used only 3 threads on the first block and will keep it very minimal…like on the prairie…not much available.

If you sign up you are only committing to the 12 blocks…the setting and borders will be offered as an option.  I am guessing it will cost around $75 for the finishing for the setting blocks, setting triangles and simple border…remember this is a guess and I have not finished this quilt, but re-designing in my head… it is an option so you don’t have to commit to that yet…

Please don’t think about this long as we have ordered all of the flannel in Moda’s warehouse of this particular print and what they have on order is all coming to us in May.  There will be no more until July or so…if you want to get “in” this year…don’t hesitate…we are limited to less than we had last year…unless you are willing to wait almost all summer for your background to come in?  

Now to start planning the “freebies”…this will be a complete surprise…but they are always fun to get!  The same rules apply this year for the freebies…if you come and pick up your block each week or have it mailed each week you get that weeks “free” block…if you don’t pick it up…you don’t get it free…it will cost you $$$ if you want it…just a little added fun for you all…

We will start signing up today!!!

I promise to post the inspiration when I post my final…(if I don’t remember…make sure you remind me…if you remember..I only have a small clipping of it…at first I thought is was a rug…but after very close inspection…i think it is a quilt…that’s how tiny my pic is…lol

    Hi Lisa, I am interested in doing the Summer block of the week, but I am in New Zealand. Is there any chance of sending it as one parcel. If so email me for where to go and sign up and give visa details, thanks Michelle.

    Lead me not into temptation………….I know the way! On that note, I called today after the shop closed and left an e-mail as well asking to be put on the list. I should have stayed away from POMW last year I suppose, but there are worse vices I’m told. Can’t wait to see what the summer will bring since it’s often TOO HOT to go outside here in SC. Thanks for doing this again this year Lisa!

    Your sneak peek is just enough! Of course I would love to see more, but I know you’re going to make this a fun project. I like that you have added the blues and maybe you will surprise us with a touchof gold. The freebies are icing on the cake! Sign me up!

    I would love to sign for this summers BOW, but could not find any contact info. Please advise me on how to sign up. Thanks…Karen

    Lisa, once again you have done it! Wow. How to sign up.

    I agree with Michelle in New Zealand. I am so intriqued. This would be completely new for me. I am in Texas and would have to have mine shipped to me as well. Is this doable or would it be too costly with all the shipping charges?

  28. April 22, 2012 at 11:37 am

    Hi, did the BOW last year and loved it, so I am up for it this time too ! Sent you an email asking to be put on the list, since I don’t see it listed on the website.

    Will there be a pieced BOW? Working on Primitive Garden BOM. Will all backgrounds be from little gatherings? Do u suggest using the antique spray given the backgrounds we will be using.? This wool BOW looks to cute. As much as I tried to tell myself not to sign up I could not help myself.

    Your bow’s are always so nice. Are you doing a pieced block or the week as well? I thought I read that you were, perhaps in the newsletter. Please let me know. I loved the little stars last year!
