back home…

You probably have figured out that I am home from 5 days of teaching in MN (because I am blogging)…I have met some wonderful ladies and had the pleasure of sharing my knowledge of wool appliqué and embroidery stitches with them…I love MN because they all talk the same way I do…no one comments on “my accent”…Its just like being home…I taught at the Minnesota State Guild and then at Sew Seeds Quilt Co in New Ulm MN…The shop is owned by these 3 lovely ladies pictured here…3-150x150If you live in MN, or near there this is a must stop quilt shop!!! Cindy, Jacking and Ann are the best…the new, just over 1 year shop was gorgeous and if you attend one of their events the food was to die for, its always about the food!  Visit their shop online here: Sewing Seeds Quilt Shop

Here are a few pics from my workshops.  I will be in DesMoines next week…so not a lot of HOME time this time…take care

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. I hated that I couldn’t make it to the MN show this year but sent my quilt without me…. I would like to say ‘ thank you’ for being the sponsor of the BEST HAND QUILTING award for this show as I was the lucky recipient of this award with my Civil War Bride quilt. Will see you in Des Moines.
    Lovin the 2014 SBOW.

  2. I know what you mean about the Wisconsin accent. My sister and her family have one. 🙂 But I lost mine when I married a career military fella and started living in other parts of the country. When I came back from living in Florida for three years, my aunt jested about my NEW accent.

  3. Lisa having taken one of your classes I can just imagine how much fun these ladies are having 🙂 Which pattern are they working on and is it available for sale as a kit? It looks beautiful. Thanks Liz Schraeder. PS I like your accent

      1. Found it thanks! Once I double checked my patterns (to make sure I don’t have it already) I will be ordering 🙂

  4. Hi Lisa. I have done all the appliqué for the table mat. I am kinda stuck on the crazy stitches. In your picture the gals have a handout with some stitches. Was this with the mat pattern? Or available as a resource on your blog?
    Thanks, Lynn.

  5. It looks awesome….wish I could have been there. I work at a local elementary school so I have the summers off however there aren’t many classes offered in the summer by our area quilt shops. I am however trying to locate some of your fabric with the burgundy background with little sheep all over it (Americana). How can I locate some? Our shop in New Hampton, Iowa is out (that’s where I purchased my original piece). Thanks so much.
