Spell it with fabric…Moda Blog Hop..


Welcome to another great  MODA blog hop!!! Today Is my day…I’m Lisa Bongean from Primitive Gatherings. LB    My letter for the Blog Hop was P…and here is my block made with the instructions given here:  p_spellitwithfabric IMG_1028

But as you know it is hard being a designer and only making one block when they give you the directions for all of them….so here is what we did at Primitive Gatherings with all the letters…Mini Alphabet Quilt photo Our sample is made by reducing the blocks in half…our whole little quilt is only 42″IMG_9440 I am showing the blocks next to a charm pack so you can judge the size…What a perfect quilt for a grandchild or for yourself!!! I have always wanted to make an alphabet quilt…also…we have kits!!!  The kits are made up using all of my “Gathering” lines from Moda…The kits are priced at $75 and include the pattern.  If you want the pattern only they are $10 and include directions and full color picture of the finished quilt.  This can all be purchased here…Mini Alphabet Quilt

Moda has also given me some great prizes to give away…as well as a kit for our mini quilt from Primitive Gatherings…IMG_9434so please comment on this post and you will be entered to win….we will pick a winner March 5…I will be back from a teaching gig on the 3rd and need a day to get my stuff together and then we will post a winner…We have 5 prizes total…good luck!

I also want to take this time to talk about my new line…which our give-a-ways are from….Homestead Gatherings….Deep Reds, Blacks, Browns and Greens along with Tans paired with all the previous colors on them….I think  this line is my favorite so far…I love the little accent piece with the house..It comes  tan/red, tan/black and black/dk tan….


Look for this line of Moda fabric in your local quilt stores or order it on our website here  Homestead Gatherings.    Pre-cuts are available now and bolted yardage is coming in March/April 2014…We have three quilts made and the kits and patterns will be available soon after the fabric comes in also…Here is a peek at them…Christmas on the Prairie, Homestead and then Hospitality…which is just back from the quilter, Linda Hrcka…and is just fabulous as usual…here is close up…To pre order kits click here:  KITSprairie christmasIMG_2846 2

  141. hello, my initials are MW..I love Primitive and your new line is fantastic.. I was wanting to make a small alphabet quilt.. thanks

  142. Love the new fabric line, beautiful reds. Also love the mini alphabet quilt. may have to do this one.
    Thanks for the giveaway.

  143. I love your new fabric line. I’d love to win one of your prizes. My birthday is March 5, so it would be a fun birthday present!

  144. Beautiful quilts in this post! I got some Homestead Gatherings precuts a couple of weeks ago, and I can’t wait to use them. I need to get more before it’s all gone. I especially love the “no place like home” fabric.

  145. Lisa, beautiful new “gatherings”. Amanda gave me a fat 8th bundle of the “floral” gatherings shirtings, now must think of a combo project to use both the newest and the bundle. Coming down in March, can’t wait!!

  146. Lisa, you’ve done it again-the alphabet quilt is terrific, and your latest fabrics are beautiful! Enjoy the cruise-thanks for a chance to win-

  147. I really love what you made with the letters. What a cute little quilt. Your fabrics are so pretty. I really like the reddish/almost deep dark pinkish color against the greens. Very nice.

    1. Love the new fabric line!!! Linda is such an inspiration and I hope one day to be half a good a quilter as she is. Keep designing Lisa and remember every day is a gift.

  148. Love your new fabric. What a coincidence hat my doorbell plays “There’s no place like home.” Thanks for the chance to win you giveaway.


  149. That’s an adorable alphabet quilt. I also love the colours in your new fabric range, they are not colours I use often but maybe I should start. Thanks for the chance of winning something.

  150. Lisa, I know I read in your blog about a sewing machine that looks like hand stitching and can’t find the name! Could you let me know what it is? Thanks. Pat Simington


  151. Another moda line that I absolutely love. You have drop dead beautiful quilts. If I lived close to your shop I would quit my day job and park myself on your shop steps until you hired me.

  152. I love the alphabet quilt–perfect for my granddaughters!
    I have some of Lisa’s fabrics and love them all. So glad there is a new line!

  153. WOW! Great fabrics! Love anything done in a small version and already had in mind to shrink the blocks down a bit. Not sure how I’m going to lay them out yet, but figuring it out is the fun part of the quilting process for me.

  154. WOW I love the look via your sneak peak at Christmas on the Prairie, Homestead and then Hospitality. And your new fabric is just lovely

  155. A quilting cruise is on my bucket list. I can’t think of anything better! My hubby, not so much! Such a cute quilt and I love your newest line, the colors are luscious as always. Thanks.

  156. Lisa, I absolutely love your Mini Alphabet quilt and Homestead Gatherings is gorgeous!! I love the colors and the house print is my favorite! Thank you for sharing and I hope you have a wonderful cruise!

  157. The mini Alphabet Quilt is so cute…I have 3 young grandsons..would make a great quilt for one or all of them!
    Think of all us quilters in the snowbelt while you are cruising!!

  158. I think any of your lines pair up nicely with anything – love them! I do have a charm pack now and deciding on yardage, I like getting them ahead to drool over and plan what my next project will be. Thanks bunches!

  159. Love love love your new fabric line, the little hearts coming out of the chimney , how cute is that. I’m in the middle of making a black and white quilt, so am pleased to see the black fabrics in this new line.

  160. Love the smaller ABC quilt. I am going to be a new grandmother in April. So perfect timing. Thank you for the chance to win.

  161. Your new fabric is wonderful. We are expecting our 8th grandchild in August so your alphabet quilt would be perfect. I will cross my fingers that I will win the pattern! Thank you for the opportunity to win. Enjoy the cruise!

  162. Sew very cute! I seriously think you design & sew in your sleep… how in the world do you do it? This will look great with my wool farm mat that has willow trees and sheep…baaaa! Thank you 🙂

  163. My favorite fabric of yours is primative snowman. I bought the stuff to make the quilt. Now to get started!! Hope your trip was great.

  164. Those fabrics are yummy! I can’t hardly wait to get my hands on some of them. I’m into smallish HST right now and I love that quilt with all of those in it. I have to agree with Cindy, you are a whirl wind Lisa! My favorite line so far has been little gatherings and I’m hoping to pick up some at the shop at the end of March…thanks for that chance and keep up the great work!

  165. Your mini alphabet quilt is awesome! Once I collect all the letters I’m going to make one for my grandkids. Thanks for the chance to win some of your gorgeous fabric!

  166. Another wonderful fabric line! I guess I had better start making room on the shelf for some of this. Can’t wait to see this fabric in person. Thank you for the chance to win. Great alphabet quilt, Lisa!

  167. Thanks for a chance to win some of this yummy fabric. Sure wish I could go on a cruise – I bet it would be fun to cruise with fabric in hand!

  172. I love your new fabric. But for that matter really love all your fabric lines. I think the mini alphabet quilt is fantastic. Looks so much better than the large letters. Think I’m going to have to get that one. The small letters are so much more usable in quilts. Would love to own that quilt. Your designs are fabulous. I’ve made a few of your wool pieces and just love them. Thanks for the post. Hope your having a wonderful cruise. Veronica

  194. Love your work. My girls are both elementary teachers. The small quilt would be a terrific idea for them. Unfortunately, all 9 grandchildren are now in junior high or high school or in college. Can you even imagine the look I would get from them??? Scary.

LOVE the new line, we live in a farmhouse in rural Idaho and it is made for showing quilts. Red check flooring, green molding and doors, and very light, creamy gold walls. So cozy, would love some Homestead Gatherings to gather here! Shameless, no? I know it’s just a random number picker, but …oh well. U
