LOVE….MODA Blog Party

moda-love_header

 

Welcome to the Moda Blog tour!!!…I am Lisa Bongean of Primitive Gatherings…I’m glad you stopped by…I have been a moda designer for a couple of years now and I truly LOVE it!! I design under Primitive Gatherings which happens to be the name of our quilt shop in Menasha, WI…LBthat is by Appleton.  We have a beautiful shop, my studio is in our warehouse and we also have a  retreat house right down the road, so come visit if you are ever in the area! Look for workshops and retreats coming in 2015!  I LOVE being home…you should come see me!

For this blog tour the crew at Moda has prepared some questions for us…so you get to know us a little better…

When did you start quilting?   I starting quilting in 1996…while I was at swimming lessons with the boys on a Saturday morning…a lady was hand quilting a baby quilt…I had never seen a patchwork quilt before…I asked her how she cut them all up and sewed them back together…she then proceeded to tell me about the “quilt shop” in town…

Tell us about your first quilt. My first real quilt is a blue and cream  star quilt…It was from an American Patchwork & Quilting magazine… It is hand quilted…I really didn’t know what I was doing  but It turned out and I didn’t give up on it…I have a 1/2″ binding…the quilting is a little quirky…but for my first completed real quilt…I LOVE it!lisabongean/primitivegatherings

When did you fall in LOVE with quilting/ textiles? and Why? After I took my first quilting class…which felt like an eternity waiting to attend it…I was sooooo In LOVE…I could do it!…it was actually easy for me…my head was spinning…they were all talking about other shops….guilds and sewing groups…I was in heaven…
What fuels you to create? I just love to see what I can make with my hands..I can see it in my head and it is amazing that I actually can make it happen! I love math…but being creative, organized and keeping all those numbers straight sometimes can be very overwhelming!  I LOVE what I do…and have a hard time know when to hang it up for the day…so I guess that means I am doing what I am supposed to!
What is the best part of your design process? The best part for me…is making all the choices…what fabrics to use….should I set them “on point” or straight…should I make big blocks or make them as tiny as I can…I LOVE being in control of any and all of those decisions!  
I love the color……Right now my favorite color to work with is Moda…anything Moda…but seriously…I used to not care too much for the color white…you never saw me create with white…but somehow, maybe because I am older or should I should say mature, it has grown on me…I like being able to create homey warm projects with my normal “white” which is tan. But as of late…I am using some white… it is nice to be more versatile…more current or if I wish to or go back to a more vintage style I can…so I guess what I am trying to say is…it good to have more choices.
When I teach classes or workshops, I love…..Teaching my students all the tricks…I remember what it is like to be in quilt class and how exciting it was…My intent is to inject them with  excitement and be confident with the skills I have taught when the class is over.  I want them to LOVE this as much as I do!
This project features a layer cake, charm pack or mini charm, but what is your all time favorite moda precut? I would prefer the FQ tower! That is the best precut!!! This question is like saying do you want one scoop of ice cream or two?  The more fabric the better…

Who would you like to spend a day with… I would love to spend the day with a bunch of Moda designers…just to see what we could come up with?  Maybe a fabric line…we all could contribute one sku?  Kind of a collaboration line…give the $$$ to a charity…

The Project…

For my quilt project I chose the mini charms…partly because I did not have my fabric line to work with yet…so we had to use Homestead Gatherings…which is good…cause you can make this right now!!! It takes 2 mini charms and probably a yard of primitive muslin.  We only used the reds, greens, blacks and browns…we saved the lights for the back…So if you are following the pattern use the Primitive Muslin as your light.  We then bordered the 12″ block with a 4″ wide border.  Piece the remaining light mini charms…add some primitive muslin squares also to make 64- 2  1/2″ squares needed for the back.  You will also have to border this too. I would put a 6″ border on the back.  If you need to order Homestead Gathering precuts you can do so here: PRECUTS   If you need to order Primitive muslin…you can do that here:  PRIMITIVE MUSLIN   We used Paper Bag 1040-24. Our little quilt finished 19″x 19″ after quilting.

I wish I had the Lakeside Gatherings for this  big star pattern to make a couch snuggling quilt with it for our Lakehouse. When we are done making all the samples for actual quilts in the line I  will be making the charm version.  Here are a few pictures of the quilts from Lakeside Gatherings being made in progress…The Lakeside Gatherings line is coming in December 2014…securedownload-5 securedownload-4 securedownload-6 securedownload

    Hi Lisa,
    When l read about your excitement teaching and inspiring others, l could relate. l teach workshops and do demos for the 2 guilds l belong to. l LOVE, LOVE, LOVE being able to show a new pattern, technique , or trick to my cronies and have them get the “fire in the belly” as was once described to me by a wonderful teacher l had many years ago. lt is a blessing for all of us to have one another and a love of quilting to share forever.

    Really love what you did with the pattern using the mini charm packs, even if it was not your newest fabric collection. It really is very nice to see projects made using that size as they are such an affordable way to get the fabrics we love, and more of them. I see so many of the fabric collections that I really would love to buy, but gosh, I certainly can’t afford to buy fat quarter bundles of them all, and even the regular sized charm packs can add up quickly if buying a lot of the different collections.

    Lisa I am just crushing on the new fabric line! I’m a New England girl who has spent the last 24 years in Atlanta, so nautical and navy is just like home for me! I am currently fondling my Snowman Gathering fabrics to decide on quilt pattern for them! My Seasonal Gatherings jelly rolls are waiting for me too! I love your fabric lines and want to say thank you for sharing your talents with us!

  218. September 9, 2014 at 10:14 am

    I have only been quilting for a few years so I do know where my first quilt is. It resides at my daughter’s house and looks great there. Your fabric line is really great. All of the hand quilting on your first quilt is amazing.

  219. September 9, 2014 at 10:15 am

    I love your Block and the fabric, Lakeside Gathering. Very striking block, indeed. Thank you for being a part of the Moda Love Blog Tour and the chance to become a Moda Winner of such an elegant fabric line.

    I was immediately drawn to your Lakeside Gatherings collection – the prints and shades evoke fond memories. I grew up in Duluth, MN and maritime themed fabrics are on my “Most Wanted” list as I create from what I know. You do beautiful work and I was inspired with your Moda Love project to use some muslin with one of the items I plan to make.

  242. September 9, 2014 at 10:51 am

    Your first quilt is beautiful. You certainly chose a complicated pattern as your first one. My first few quilts all involved squares. It wasn’t until I joined a couple of quilt clubs that I even tried triangles. And that was because they were the homework projects. I am so glad I joined those clubs. I may never have had the courage to try half square triangles and all the other techniques. I have been quilting almost 2 years now and love it. I love your new line of fabric. Can’t wait….

    You have always been amazing–look at that hand quilting on your first quilt. You continue to inspire me.

  339. September 9, 2014 at 2:45 pm

    I can’t believe you hand quilted that thing so well on your first try. My first quilt was machine sewn, and it was terrible. 🙂

    I, too have been trying to use some colors outside of my comfort zone & it is harder to use the light, bright colors, but I am finding myself liking them. I would be thrilled to win your fabrics, as everything you do is a design that I really like.

    I discovered your patterns recently through our local quilt shop. I’m so delighted you have felted wool charm packs! It can be so hard to find felted wool in patterns rather than solids. I’m making six of your snowball runners for Christmas gifts this year, and I’m very excited about it! Being a hand quilter, it was fun seeing your first quilt. It’s lovely!

  364. September 9, 2014 at 4:15 pm

    It would be fun to play with a bundle of fat eighths! Have never done that. Mostly I make smaller things. Quilted purses, book covers and tech cozies.

  365. 377 Cheryl
    September 9, 2014 at 4:17 pm

    September 9, 2014 at 4:18 pm

    I would never have guessed that your quilt was a “first quilt!!” I think your quilting looks great. Like the pop of color (yellow) in your new line.

    OH my goodness, I am in love with LAKESIDE GATHERINGS………I am a huge blue fan….and usually not a yellow fan……..but that buttery soft yellow is perfect, and I have been converted!!! Since you have shared photos of your lakeside house, I can envision you enjoying your quilts up there. My grandma used to go every summer to a church event in Lakeside…..so just the name sends me down memory lane filled with sweet thoughts of my grandma…….and yes she was a big quilter. In fact the quilt I inherited from her is a blue and white treasure. I would be overjoyed to win that lovely bundle of beauty, and I will be hoping for that, but right now I need to go make that little quilt you showed with the mini charms from HOMESTEAD GATHERINGS. I just happen to have 2 mini charm packs tucked away….but not for long! Only wish I had Linda Hrcka to quilt mine too. You two are simply a dream team! Thanks for the chance Lisa!

    September 9, 2014 at 4:47 pm

  460. September 9, 2014 at 9:21 pm

    Your new stuff is great! It will never beat out your usual influence of primitive looking fabrics in my opinion but wow! What a great second! Wonderful ability to modern and totally chic! Love it!

    Absolutely ❤ anything PG! have two charm packs of every line you've done so far, and those are in my just to have stack. That doesn't include the yardage I have bought that I use. I know I've asked before, but PLEASE, convince Moda to carry the Primitive Muslin in Tallow as a constant in their offerings. I love that and use it all the time. I'm getting low and starting to panic!

    Can’t wait for your Lakeside Gatherings. Our family is fanatical about the water. And my husband’s passion is waterskiing, so that obsession gets me the freedom to do alot of shopping for quilt accessories. And, Lisa, I think you should do your Star first quilt using your Lakeside Gatherings fabrics. It would be phenomenal !

    Lisa, I am such a huge fan I feel like I know you anyway but reading your answers to the Moda questions was a lot of fun. I love your new Lakeside Gatherings and can’t wait for it to come out in December.

  498. 512 Lena
    September 10, 2014 at 7:16 am

    Yes you right, 6 needles in a pack certainly aren’t enough! The new packing looks great for what I call “butter needles”. They slide right thru wool layer after layer. To be 100% honest I dream of you making them a touch longer for your long fingered fans. Please oh please. Your hand quilted scrap quilt is beautiful and I have a pile of strips just right for the task. Love your enthusiasm!

  499. 513 Susan
    September 10, 2014 at 7:16 am

    1) Lisa, your first quilt is amazing! 2) I like prim as well but I’m attracted to some of the modern quilts (in a prim sort of way) 3) will you be teaching any wool online classes? Too far for me to get to WI.

    You are right, 6 needles in a pack is not enough! The new packaging looks great and can’t wait to see in person. I call your needles, “butter” needles since they go thru layer after layer of fabric. To be honest, ever consider making some a touch longer for your long fingered fans?

  508. September 10, 2014 at 8:44 am

    I love your fabrics! I can’t wait for the new line to come out. It is so pretty. I am usually drawn to bright colors like Pat Sloan and Bonnie and Camille…but, I’m going to order some of yours right now!!! 🙂

    Enjoy your blog , your fabric [just used some on a With Thy Needle and Thread cross stitch pattern], your patterns, and postings in PQ&P magazine. It is difficult trying to find a fabric to finish little projects, so I now just use PG fabric which is the perfect scale[design].

    Thanks for the giveaway!!

    I, too, love the fq tower best……..but, sometimes it is too much for a small project and that’s where the other precuts are lovely!. Your colors are wonderful!! My daughter needs a new quilt for her bed headboard and the new line would fit nicely since she LOVES blacks and whites.

    Would it be wrong to just love your bundle of fabric for a long time all tied together without using it, probably but somethings need to be appreciated just for it’s beauty for awhile before one makes that first initial cut!

    Hi Lisa! I love your new fabric line! I love the pre-cut fat-quarter towers too! Gives me more options when picking out fabric first, than looking for a great pattern. I really loved your first quilt . . . mine was a Quilt In A Day pattern, more that 30 years ago. Wow, time does fly when you’re having fun. Appreciate all your hard work & devotion to bring us great fabric, patterns, threads & needles.

    It’s so fun to hear how you started out!! We all start at the beginning, but I’d say you’ve come a long way! Say hi to Chattanooga– I used to live there, but now I’m in Sweden 🙂

    I love your new line of lakehouse. My favorite place on earth is visiting the beach. I don’t live near a beach but I would love to make a quilt to snuggle under and breathe in the sounds of water and the smell of the clean beach air. Your collection is just what I need. Thanks

    I love the primative reds and naturals together — someday I will use that combo for my “red/white” quilt.

    I loved seeing your quilt pieces, and the one you did for Schoolhouse was so wonderfully quilted and beautifully colored. Thanks for the chance to win some of the fabrics.

    I’ve been a more modern quilter, but lately I’ve been loving more primitive fabrics. I have enjoyed getting to know a little bit about you and your fabrics. Funny that you have been trying to use more white, as I’ve been trying to use less! My quilts are generally 50% to 80% white. I love white! It is my favorite color, but I am trying to challenge myself. Thanks for the fun.

    Your quilts are beautiful. They make me think of my grandparents!

  606. September 13, 2014 at 8:01 am

    Love your fabrics and patterns! I am fairly new to quilting but I have already established a tradition of buying one of your wool kits as a keepsake from the quilting shows I attend. Just bought my last in Chattanooga and can’t wait to make it 🙂

    I love your two color quilt. For a first quilt, it is beautiful. My first quilt isn’t even close to that good. I love the new fabric line and can’t wait to see it in the shops. Keep your fabulous designs and fabrics coming. I love them all.

  608. September 17, 2014 at 8:44 pm

    Oh I just really love the size of the wall hanging and I have the perfect spot…Thanks so much for sharing with all of us. The prize is yummy. And your first quilt looks really very pretty ..I can assure you mine was not even close…lol
