LOVE….MODA Blog Party



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

    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.

    I am a Wisconsin girl living in Colorado. It would be fun to have something from your delightful Lakeside Gatherings line, direct from Menasha to the Mile High state.

    I love your first quilt. You did a great job! I especially like the hand quilting.

    I love the quilt with the star and anchor. I’m looking forward to seeing Lakeside Gatherings.
