Hello, I’m Lisa, from Primitive Gatherings. If you are a regular visitor, or here for the first time…I welcome you to sign up to browse through earlier posts to learn more about me and my company… If you like what you see and want to follow me in my quilting adventures, just enter your email in the box provided on the bottom right of this site…If you are an “old” friend, Welcome back…and thanks for hanging out with me…
Are you here today for the Friendship Quilt Along sponsored by Moda?…the best fabric company in the world…Okay…maybe I am just a little biased….I want you all to know what a joy it is to be able to work with such an “over-the-top” company such as Moda, United Notions…They truly are the best at what they do and support “us” who work with them in many ways to help grow our “little” pattern companies.
NNow on to the Quilt Along… My Friendship block features our newest line of fabric: Snowman Gatherings. It is to arrive in our stores in April 2013. What I love about this line is that it has 2 cute little primitive snowman prints, but then all the other prints are little “reproductions” of vintage fabrics in 5 color ways, a wonderful deep navy, a union blue, and then three tones ranging from cream to dark tan. The prints consist of motifs that remind me of snow, swirling snow, stars and such… Another bonus is the fabric “goes along” with my other lines…One of the union blues in my block is from “Old Glory Gatherings”. It is nice to be able to collect fabrics…remember you do not have a “stash”…it is a Collection. You never have to feel guilting of having a collection. Collections are valuable!
Are you collecting all 28 blocks? This next link contains the PDF directions for my signature block, you can click and print…
I want to share some photos of Snowman Gatherings that were taken by Camille Roskelley for advertising purposes…They are so sweeeeeet!!! Thanks Camille for your camera talents!
Warm Winter Blessing is a BOM that will be starting in April/May…depending on when the fabric arrives…I would love to post a link to my store site where you can sign up…but at this moment our site is currently down due to an upgrade….This is a real bummer when there is so much going on right now…The new site will have lots of nice features…but right now half of our pictures and prices are not there and it looks like we were hijacked…no logo and a bunch of random stuff going on…another issue is we didn’t realize our company that is upgrading us is in England! 6 hour time difference…so Please come back and visit when all is back up and running, we have lots of nice samples and wools and inspiration…and keep your fingers crossed it all works our and we don’t have to go back to our “old” site and rebuild it… If you want to be sure to get a spot in this BOM you may call us…920-722-7233 Sorry for this inconvenience this may cause…I am going to share the link here but it may not work for you right now…but you will come back and visit later, right? Primitive Gatherings Quilt Shop
Now back to the Signature Blocks….
I just love signature quilts. This is a signature block that I had framed and it hangs in my studio. Back in the day…they had signature stamps. I would love to have stamp created for me…I guess this is a lost art. This was not a “rubber” stamp like we have today…I believe they were made of metal…and could be very finely etched… In the second picture you can see how fine and detailed they were… I have attached a few signature quilts, that I have found, some are antique and some are new…some are little images but just so you can get another idea for a signature quilt.
What is a Blog Hop without a GIVE AWAY!!! Moda has generously donated some goodies…Two Layer Cakes and a Dessert Roll….Do you know what a dessert roll is? It is a 5″ strip of 20 fabrics from the line….These are NEW to the Moda Bakeshop offerings………If you wish to have a chance at winning one of these “pretties” please leave a comment in my comment section!
If you missed any of my fellow designers posts or need to know where to go next here is a list of the dates and sites….
Remember to visit the Moda Cutting Table on March 1st for a finishing layout for all of your Signature blocks!!!
Thank you for stopping by today…and again if you wish to “sign up” for this blog…Please do so at the bottom right… I will pick winners on March 1st!!! Take Care, Keep Stitching and Good Luck! Lisa

I was glad to hear you are having problems with your site (sorry)….. I thought it was me and my computer! I go to your site almost every day and I really like the look of your original “brown” site. I love the snowman! Anxiously waiting for the fabric! Luv your BOM’s and BOW’s!
Looking forward to shopping on your updated website. The new fabric line is wonderful, as are all of your fabrics! My sisters and I use your primitive muslin line (especially pie crust and paper bag) as our go to staple in every little quilt we make. Thanks for your block pattern and a chance to perhaps win some fabric!
I love the new fabric line and so pleased I didn’t miss it. Our local awesome shop is closing and I am in a panic. She carried all your fabric. I am new to this blog thing and can’t believe all the fabulous information it contains. As always love your patterns etc etc
I hope to do another from the hop using your new line
Great block and stunning fabrics! Thanks for the block pattern and the chance to win.

Nice block, and nice blue fabrics!! I fondled my Snowman Gathering fabric just yesterday!
Can’t wait till your new fabric line is available. I love the signature quilts you have. So pretty.
Hi there. I want to you know that I’m a fairly new quilter, and, until recently, hadn’t sewn using any of the more traditional fabrics. This past summer, I picked up a pack of Old Glory Gatherings, and LOVED it, so I am anxiously awaiting the Snowman Gatherings release. Thanks!
Blue is my favourite colour so I just love this fabric. Thanks for the block design and the giveaway.
I was really not very aware of signature blocks/quilts, but what a fabulous story they have to tell. Thanks for showcasing them, your lovely fabric and the fun block! I also love the idea of the dessert roll – leave it to Moda! Thanks for the chance to win!

Your new line reminds me of a snowfall – snowing from early morning to nighttime, a beautiful snow that makes one want to sit and quilt next to a window.
Love the fabric and the block!
Cant wait till your site is up. Your block is beautiful and I love primitive work. So glad I found the Moda block series. Would love to win some fabric, like you I think Moda is the best.
Awww… I was looking for the one we (your employees) made for you one Christmas! You might have it packed away where you can’t get to it, tho. That’s ok. The ones you posted, tho, are Very vintage looks, that’s for sure.
Love your fabric line and patterns. Thanks for the opportunity to win your giveaway.
Love your new snowmen fabric line and the BOM looks great. I can see that this snowmen collector is going to have to sign up. Thanks for the chance at the giveaway.
Love your fabrics and the colors tht you use! Great work.
I have a soft spot for snowmen-haha–and can’t wait to buy some of the new line. i’ve been collecting all of the quilt along block patterns and cant wait to start them—i’ve got a “collection” of reds and creams that will look good in all the blocks. ok-gotta run–kids safely on the bus enroute to school, husband off to work, fire stoked and the house cleaned (not really) and now i’m off to sew—a perfect “ME” day.
I am so excited about Snowman Gatherings. I recommend your blog/shop to everyone!!!My dream is to make it to yur shop or at lease a class with you. Thank you for all you do!
I am never disappointed in any creative idea you pass on . I am a primitive girl at heart. I look forward to your posts. I wish I could stitch,sew,knit as fast as you produce. Thanks for the giveaway
Love the block and have really enjoyed the blog hop. I agree with you about Moda!
I can not wait for this line to come out in the stores!!! EEEKK!! And the bom is one that I will just “HAVE” to do! Thanks for sharing!!
Love the fabric and your snowman is adorable. Thank you for a chance to win.
This is the neatest block. I have been having fun collecting and will be making all of the wonderful friendship blocks from theblog hop. Thank you for sharing your block with us and giving all your followers a chance to win those layers cakes and the dessert roll. I just imagine what a warm winter quilt I could be making.
I love this fabric-and your store!
Thanks for a chance to win your lovely fabric and I think the snowmen are adorable
I’m totally in love with the new fabric line! I think I see a Snowman Gatherings FQ bundle in my future…it will look awesome on my shelf next to my Seasonal Gatherings bundle!
