Hey all…sorry to bother you three times in one day…but I must have a lot to say today…

I hope your summer is going well…I have been swamped!!! That is the reason for no blog posting…but here I am and you are not getting an email from me everyday( only 3 in one day) so hopefully you are not bored with me and just delete them without even reading them…who does that? not me…ok…maybe some emails….but back to the REASON for this post…

If you are collecting our free blocks we are giving out with a weekly shop purchase….I have the Summer Blooms (25″x25″) done!  Here are the details for the OPTIONAL finishing kit….If you like how mine turned out you can order a kit with the pattern, wools and fabric and binding…Now please do not think this was hard to do…there is no needle turn applique going on here…this is so SIMPLE you are just going to LOVE it….so no worries….We need to know how much fabric to order and how many to make…so please if you would like a finishing kit for your FREEBIE please email us and then you do not  have to enter all of your info in the cart or you can place an order on the site…If you have paid in full for your SBOW kit-we will still have your cc number to apply this finishing kit to it, just let us know by sending us an email here:   EMAIL SHOP CLICK HERE  make sure in the email you include your full name as some emails have double top secret identities…lol….If you are ordering the whole kit, blocks and all you must go to the site and place an order as we do not have any of your information…you cannot just email the order…we need you to go to the link below and order from the site…

    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 🙂

    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!

    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.

    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.

    I love it. I have some of it ironed on. And a little stitching. As always I enjoy you projects. Thanks, Nancy P.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!!!! 🙁

    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.

  40. Mary Avatar

    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.

    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

    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?

  49. Judith Avatar

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

  50. Tana Avatar

    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.

    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!

    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!

    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.

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

    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.

    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!

    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,

    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 <\__~ /\

  83. quiltwhinny Avatar

    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
