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. Gloria,

      I’ve asked about the pattern too. No reply yet. Let me know if you get one!!!! Love it too.

      1. What are you girls looking for… A pattern for , A Primitive Garden? If so it is on our website… Under “our designs”
        If you at looking for the flag pattern that is Janet’s addition to my pattern… Her thing to make this quilt different from everybody else’s.

  4. This inspires me to finish mine. I bought the pattern in Paducah in 2008 and have about 2/3s of the blocks done but haven’t worked on it for 3 years. Maybe I will get it out. I had to use all cottons because they had stopped making the kits for it.

      1. Oh, how I wish you could add this block to the pattern ! I just love the flag and flag pole in the quilt ! Maybe, a bonus block ! PLEASE

  5. I completed my last year and just love it. I like the addition of the flag, but I love my original quilt just as much!!

  7. where can I find the pattern for the flag block? I am working on the 11th block and prefer your interpretation with the flag on the right hand side border…thanks
