  4. I love it !!!!……and I am ordering mine right now !! I do hope to win, however !! pick me….Diana in sunny Northern California !!

  5. Your Summer Blooms finishing kit is beautiful. Love it. I sent an email to order the kit. Thank-you for always creating such wonderful designs for us.

  6. I love it! Already emailed in an order for the finishing kit. Can’t wait to put it together!

  7. The best part of participating in your SBOW and freebie is the time I get to spend with my Woolie friends ( Sue, Laura and a few others ) Thanks for bringing us together 🙂

  8. I love the way you finished these little blocks! I wasn’t sure how you could top last years freebies! I like this one just as much. Tanks!

  9. I am so enjoying the SBOW and summer freebie. Appliques with wool is new to me. I do love the finishing kit and will be ordering one, for sure. The burgundy border with the scallops is eye-catching!! Thanks, Lisa.

  10. I love the finishing kit for the freebie block of the month. Pick me, pick me. Thanks, Shirley Nelson

  11. Absolutely beautiful. Another creative and unique design. Can’t wait to get mine done.

  12. Hi, this is so nice. I just ordered my finishing kit, but my financial picture would look better if I were to win it. Thanks for such great patterns. Love Primitive Gathering.

  13. I love the finishing kit and HAVE to have it. Your tip on doing the prep work when the blocks come is great. I have started doing that and find once I dive in its no big deal. The best thing about the BOW’s is that I feel as if I have a birthday every week – when the mail comes I drop everything and grab the white envelope and drool for about a hour before I do anything else. Sooo much fun. Thanks, wish I were creative but since I’m not I don’t mind copying your lead.

  14. Would love to win the kit but will order if I don’t. This is my first appliqué experience and have them all done so far and love wool appliqué. keeping up with Evelyn’s Album that I signed up for as well. This finishing kit is gorgeous!

  15. Love, love, love it! Just can’t imagine how you keep coming up with these wonderful ideas. The scalloped border with flowers on the edge is extra special. Thanks Lisa for always helping me find a spot to spend my $$$$. Keep up the dynamite work.

  16. I love it Lisa,

    I knew those leaves on the blocks would really come together, but the red, wow. Thanks for all your fun creative summer projects, they are fun to do. I ordered my finishing kit, now I have to get stitching.


  17. I was totally blown away when I saw the picture, it’s just beautiful. I have been quilting for 20 years and have
    never done a scalloped border so this should prove interesting! I have already ordered my finishing kit online
    and will be anxiously awaiting its arrival. Thanks for yet another great summer project.

  18. I love the finishing kit…its so CUTE!! I have been having so much fun with this. My husband even asks me every Friday now what did you square look like today when he gets home from work. Pretty soon he is gonna start helping me cut them out I think! 🙂

  19. I really love this one ! every year I participate and always very happy. I love your creativity!!!!

  20. Love, love the finish to this little quilt, will get busy now for sure. Sent an email requesting the finishing kit, thanks.

  21. Well I am not ordering the finishing kit since I punished myself by not ordering the kit since I did not finish last years! Now that I see it I should thought of a different punishment! If I won the finishing kit then I could reward myself with the blocks … but alas it seems I am not eligible!!!! 🙁

  22. Love the way you’ve set the little blocks together into a little quilt. I’ve just ordered my finishing kit, how could I not? LOL.

  23. 1. I would like the sbow weeks 5-13threads for ‘both’. 2. I would like the summer freebie finishing kit also

  24. I absolutely love the SBOW and the little free blocks. It has been such a treat to look forward to each week. I ordered everything. Blocks, finishing kit and threads. No surprise there to my friends. Thanks. Mary Kinsey

  25. Ok-I just ordered my 2 finishing kits-1 for me and 1 for my sister (i am giving her this for her birthday)-I have talked 4 people into doing the SBOW this year and everyone is soooo happy with them-you did it again Lisa!!!

  26. Hey Lisa, I just sent an email to pre-order the freebies finishing kit. I LOVE the way it looks. Maybe I will be lucky enough to win it. I’ve been trying to stay caught up . Doing pretty good so far. I take my blocks to work with me and stitch them during my lunch. With the limited number of colors of thread it makes it really easy to pack around.

  27. Love, love, love this kit! Please make it mine– the red and green fabric is one of my all time favorites. I have a large supply of it. The quilt is absolutely stunning. Thanks for all your creativity. It makes the rest so easy to do.

  28. Love, Love Love it! I have done the previous 2 other summer projects and just think you and the quilts are amazing. Didin’t think you could top last year’s but you did.

  29. Wow! It is beautiful. You are so amazing. I can’t wait to get mine finished. Thanks for a fun summer of stitching.

  30. Love the finished freebie SBOW….I keep thinking you can’t top last year…but you do…love them all!! Would be thrilled to win the finishing kit…thanks for always being so generous!

  31. Lisa, I have had the best time with the SBOW-the blocks are stunning! And they are so fun to do. I am not quite caught up with preparing the blocks , but that is a great idea you gave us to prepare them ahead of time to work on later. The freebie blocks are precious and I love your finished quilt. I definitely want a finishing kit for my blocks. I get so excited when the mail comes each week and it is my new blocks. I got two blocks prepared today and my husband was so impressed with how pretty they are. I do have to find time to get a little sleep, though. Ha! And housework can wait! This is my first BOW and I have enjoyed it SO MUCH. I sent an email to your shop regarding the finishing kit-would be great to win one. If we go ahead and order it, are we still eligible to win the one you are giving away? Thanks. Pam

  32. Oh my! This is simply gorgeous! I’ll be sending an email for the finishing kit… but, since I was slow to sign on for the BOW, I missed weeks 1 and 2 of the freebie… hopefully I can get those?

  33. The finished quilt looks so pretty! Would be such a pretty wallhanging or table topper. I have ordered the finishing kit.

  34. Each time I prepped one of these little gems, I would lay out the group and wonder what the final layout would be….knowing that I would love it, but wow! this is even more gorgeous than I imagined! Of course, I will be ordering. 🙂 Can’t wait to see the finishing kit for the big blocks, however I am quite content to let your vision come to life in its own time….knowing it will be worth the wait.

  35. This is my first BOW and I have only been working on the freebie. They are so cute. Love them. I have been keeping up with your suggestion of the prep. It’s working!

  36. Love the blocks and I will order a finishing kit! You are one busy woman! I’m trying to get everything fused so I can do more stitching. Thanks friend!!!!! Just got back from The Woolen Willow.. it was fantastic.
    It won’t hurt my feelings to win! Take care!

  37. Lisa, The finished product is beautiful as usual. You never fail to amaze me with your creativity. I’ve just ordered mine!

  38. I absoluately love the Freebie and the SBOW. I am just kicking myself because I did not start the very first week. I will never make that mistake again. Oh well, better late than never as they say. Would love to win the finishing kit. Thanks!

  39. I sent in the email to order the finishing kit today. This is a great summer project and can’t wait to complete the project. So excited!!

  40. Just ordered the finishing kit. The final layout is beautiful. I was so disappointed when I missed last years SBOW, I didn’t want to make that mistake again so I joined this year and I’m so glad I did. Thanks for the opportunity to win. Angela in Southern California.

  41. I sent my email to pre-order this finishing kit! And I thought I posted comment yesterday immediately after sending my email, but I don’t see it. Alas, I will just tell you again how much I love my first experience with the SBOW and the cute little freebies. I am so excited to receive my new blocks every week and your hint to do all the prep work as I as receive them has helped me keep up. I will definitely participate again in the future.

  42. I have so much doing your projects. when I get my projects for the week its Christmas every week. I’m so glad I found Primitive Gatherings and some day when I get up north I’m coming to visit!!

  43. I sent an email to pre-order the finishing kit for Summer Blooms. I am enjoying the SBOW and the cute little freebie blocks. I am almost staying current 😉 This is the first time I have participated in a SBOW from your store and it has been very fun. I have 3 friends that are getting the blocks too. We are so excited every week to see the next one arrive. Thanks, Laurie in Utah

  44. I left a comment yesterday, but it seems to be missing. I love the layout and ordered the finishing kit…

  45. Lisa you have out done yourself! This turned out beautifully. This is my first time doing you SBOW, and I am having a blast! Thank you for being such a creative designer. BTW. I love the floral gatherings. Especially the shirtings. Good call.

  46. I ordered the finishing kit because this quilt is so stunning. This is the first time I’ve done a SBOW and now am addicted to wool applique. I teach morality so the SBOW is such a delight to stitch and reflect. Looking forward to your class at Hershey.

  47. Love how this is turning out. Proud that I have been keeping up with the blocks this summer.

  48. Lisa, just got back from a “mini vacation” to Amish country in Ohio with my two sisters. We took along the blocks for the freebie that goes along with the SBOW to stitch at night while in the hotel room (glad we did – the weather at night was very warm and humid!) We all love the small blocks and were wondering how they would be put together. Your design is fabulous! I’ll be ordering the finishing kits as soon as I finish writing this comment. We would love to win another kit for our “fourth sister” (my friend since second grade) who would love the quilt (of course we’d have to make it since she has a difficult time sewing on a button.) Thanks for such fantastic designs!

  49. Of course I love the finishing kit and I must have it and will order it! I am wearing my PGQS/LB “groupie” T-shirt as I’m typing this for good luck hoping I’ll get picked to win it free!!!! Hee Hee!

  50. Hi Lisa ~ your finishing looks great. I placed my order but it would be sweet to win! Thanks for the giveaway and all the freebies!

  51. Love how you finished this, maybe after seeing yours I will have the inspiration to go home tonight and prep a few blocks. I will be sending my e-mail shortly to order this kit, thanks so much for all of your great designs!

  52. I ordered the finishing kit along with more threads. Looking forward to getting mine finished! Love the layout.

  53. This kit is definitely a WOW! I have ordered mine and can’t wait to get it. Looking forward to coming to the shop.

  54. This is my first woolie project; I am keeping up to date on the little ones and have completed 3 of the large ones as well… really love how they look! Just ordered the finishing kit and can’t wait to see it up on a wall.

  55. The finished quilt is just beautiful. I ordered it as soon as I received the email! I’ve been keeping up with my weekly blocks for the freebie and the SBOW as well!

  56. Lisa,you are amazingly talented, i love it and ordered the finishing kit,its beautiful, can’t wait to put it on my table! I’m all caught up on the freebies and working on the BOM thx again BarbC

  57. Hi Lisa. I’m just getting going on this, but wondering if the suggested threads came with this, (I did buy the finishing kit) or do I just figure that out on my own. If so, that’s fine. I just wouldn’t have the Vilvadi Threads, but probably have plenty of colors in my DMC threads. Keeping you and your family in my prayers. God will sustain you. With love and admiration,

  58. Oh, I just found the threads In a separate pack, even including a pen to mark the vines! It does say that it is missing #199 and # OS75, which will be shipped when they come in. Not sure those ever arrived? Thanks again. Barb

    Barb Jansz <\__~ /\

  59. Found 0575 in another pack. I will presume that #199 is also tucked away on another plastic bag I haven’t explored yet. So sorry to have bothered you. Sincerely, Barb
