Did you know I have a Frivols tin?  Do you know what a Frivols tin is?


They are cute tin boxes that feature a little quilt made with a current MODA fabric line.  There are 12 total…Mine is number 7!  Lucky no. Seven…that’s ME…Lucky to be able to share my love of fabric with my MODA fabric lines!!!!  Each tin has fabric to make a little quilt. Moda…has put together this project, its packaging and they are just so cute…I love to collect tins…to store all kinds of quilty goodies in…

So this tin features my current fabric line called Songbird Gatherings and here is the little quilt that this little bundle makes!  It is 28″x 28″, a nice size. You also get some kind of treat…like the cracker jack prize!  This one contains a little sheath for your scissors…with MODA on it!!! Someone also said some pretty nice things about Lisa Bongean in this pretty box…made me choke up a bit!!! more thing…each of  the Frivols tins come with a block pattern and our selvage quote on it too! How fun is it to collect selvages with quotes on them!!! This quote is one of my favorites and how fitting for Songbird Gatherings!IMG_3921 (2)…if you collect all 12 tins you will have a little sampler quilt too…here are some of the blocks from the previous six tins.  If after reading this post if you MUST have one of these limited edition tins…you can get yours HERE

As long as I have your attention… I’m going to show you the fabrics in the Songbird Gatherings collection or range, as Jen Kingwell would say..she’s an Aussie..they say fabric range…like we say fabric line or collection…just thought I would educate you, when you get to take that trip down under..IMG_6119IMG_6120IMG_6121IMG_6123As you can see the colors and the prints are VERY nice! If you HAVE to have any of these prints they are all available on our site HERE…along with all the precuts!!!images-5Also…here are couple of quilts made with the Songbird Gatherings line…

Star Crossed which I was making when Dru, from the CA store, was visiting us here in WI.  Here we are at the retreat house in our jammies!!

Dru is here fixing one of my blocks that had a slight variation than the others…IMG_3958 (1)Then here is a closeup of Nine Patch Melody…very simple, but very stunningIMG_4125As you can see the photos on the patterns are always much brighter than in real life..

Then there is Whirlwind Flight…hanging in the Market Booth 2015.IMG_4109 (2)

I also take in progress photos…some are so fun!!!IMG_3886 (1)These pinwheels are 2″ here…1 1/2″ finished in the blocks…images-3We still have some previously offered (1-6 )  Moda designer tins available at both our stores…just visit our sites…some may even be on sale!!!  Wisconsin   California 

Did I mention…I love my MODA sisters…Spring Market is next month and I can’t wait to hang out after all the hard work we do to get ready!!! We always have a great time, especially at the Moda party, which I call the stress relief party!

Now this was one long post…so to reward you…do you want to win a tin?  I’m sure Moda sent me something to give away and I’ll sweeten it up a bit too!!! Share with me what YOU think I should design next for a  fabric line? colors, theme or whatever!!!…I’m thinking this will be fun to read and see if we think the same!!! Now keep in mind…I have some already in the works, so it really won’t be the next…but future…I will also do a give-away on Instagram this weekend too and another post about…something Frivolous I do!

Well the fun must come to an end and I must pack for MI…you will read this while I’m already there…all for now…LB

    Hey Lisa – thanks for asking, would so love to see something bright ‘n bouncy (yellows, florals, and stripes)…was recently in Amsterdam @ Petra Pins shop and was inspired at how different their aesthetic is…would be to pull some of that into your great designs! Take Care –

    I would like for you to design a kid’s fabric group. It would be so fun to see you do something out of your comfort zone. I bet it would be awesome!

  8. Lu Avatar

    I am thinking fall. Not bright yellows but more orange, brown, tan, of course cheddar. With your hint of primitive it would look stunning and could be used for all seasons.

    I love the Frivols. In response to your request for ideas for a fabric line…..I think about your lake house and the anchor that sits in the cove. I think about designs that would incorporate the beauty of all that and colors that you see when the sun comes up or sets on the water.

  10. Carol Avatar

    I was thinking about greens, maybe with yellows, and first thought, Grandma’s Gatherings, since you are so smitten with your little buddy! Greens and yellows instead of pink and blue, would cover everyone’s needs! I was also thinking about children …Storytime Gatherings?

  11. Marilyn Avatar

    Something in the purple family. My favorite color. Not bright, that is not Lisa.

    How about something in red and apple green for Christmas? I like your fabric range and collections. I noticed that you used pure white as a background on some of your new quilts. I like it-it’s a different look.

  17. Marcia Porcelli Avatar

    Hi, Lisa! I love your Frivols. I think I’m just going to have to buy it. :). I’m thinking an Autumn or Halloween Gatherings line is in order-with your special touch to it.

  18. Anne Bryson Avatar

    I always love the reds and pinks that you have in your wools. The wool you used in Penny Garden is just luscious and so would fabric. Although, I always love anything you design! Can’t wait to see what it is.

    How about an indigo blue and creamy white color theme? Love those tin projects!

  29. risanotlisa Avatar

    Hi, Lisa! You are one amazing woman! I get tired just reading what you’re doing! Since family is so important to you (and all of us), how about Family Gatherings? I like the play on words, and you could feature little children, game pieces, puzzle pieces, candy, or things that remind you of family and a house or two to celebrate your lovely home…and an anchor!

    I agree with a Children’s line. I would be excited to see what you would design .
    I love blues and reds.

    Looks like you and Drew had Fun!

    Dusty purples, like heather and lavender, and rich purples, like eggplant, to coordinate with the gorgeous reds, browns, blues, and creams you gravitate toward. They’d add even more depth.

    Lisa, you left this wide open. So I would love to see what you would do with purples and all of your greens. I like to see irises with dragonflies. Can’t wait to see what the next line is.

    How about vintage sewing motifs?

  37. Joleen Avatar

    Hi Lisa,How do you do it? Coming up with so many ideas for fabric lines, my brain hurts coming up with an answer to your question…. 😝 Anything with cheddars or yellow, we can never find enough choices in those yummy colors! Maybe beach side gatherings with your new connection to California! I love your Frivols tin, and you’re right, who can’t always use another tin for goodies!!

    How about a line honoring your beautiful lake house and surroundings, the water, the land, the sky. Muted blues, greens, browns. This was what first came to mind.

  40. Coleen Avatar

    We have a second home in the Hiawatha National forest in the UP of MI. I watch the colors and textures of the forest change with the seasons and often think how beautiful these colors and textures would translate into fabric lines. I think a perfect new fabric line would be Hiawatha Gatherings or Gatherings from the Hiawatha Forest. 🌲🍁🌾🍄🌿🕸🍃🐾❄️💦

    Hi Lisa! Love the little quilt you designe for the Frivol tin. Since this is an election year, I’m thinking something like Heritage Gatherings or Glory Gatherings. Fall is such a beautiful time of year and colors to reflect that in a line of fabric would be beautiful.

I love all of your neutrals so more with small prints is always great. I am hand quilting my quilt with some of your lovely green fabric and I am wanting more! Thanks for the chance to win one of the Frivols tins. They are amazing. K-

    How about some puppy love? Puppy Love Gatherings! Aww, would be so cute. I like the Grandma Gatherings idea too…although I’m not a grandma yet. Maybe someday ♥ Are you going to be in Paducah this year? Thinking about making my hubby take me on a road trip to see you. I’ve been saving up 🙂 Loved your blog and the beautiful pics. Very cute pic of you and Dru. Made me smile. I’ve been eyeing your frivol..Would love to make a quilt out of that line for my bedroom. Curtains to match. Those colors are my favs. Take care!! xoxo

    I would love to see some ‘cheddars’, maybe ‘poison greens’–could make some great projects with both of those colours.

  54. Linda Smith Avatar
    Linda Smith

    You are the best with clever names, but I would love a line with greens, yellow, and red. Red is a neutral in my life, but I once had this medium yellowish green with a tiny bit of yellow and red in the tiny print. That fabric made me so happy everytime I found a place to use it – mostly appliqué designs. It was a sad day when it was all gone – every scrap! I could see some soft greens to go with the medium yellow green. A red with a small print – maybe black. Throw in a cheddar with tine red and green. Oh my!!!

  55. Mary Andra Avatar

    I would love to see teddy bears, kites, wagons, a town home parade, maybe a frog or two. Celebrating a family growing with little ones. Adding blue. Then the other half of the line could be dolls, a carriage or stroller, included in the parade, maybe a pin wheel or two. Adding pink. Thank you for allowing me to dream. Hope to see you soon. Hi to Nick.

    I love those new quilts with all the little pieces. How about Halloween? Maybe the tiny characters could be ghosts or other seasonal figures – instead of dots. Or Valentine’s Day/love fabrics.

  58. Nancy Avatar

    I know you probably have to go with popular colors, at least to some extent, but I would love to see some dark teal fabrics, some greens that cross the line between army green and bronze, and more of your great light fabrics with tiny prints. But you know what? You always come up with great prints/fabrics on your own! Thanks for offering the giveaway.

  59. Hildy Avatar

    I would love a Valentine range (see I’m learning;-) from you! Something with pink, red, a bit low volume and perhaps grey. You know not over-the-top Valentine just a few tiny hearts, little flowers, a text print … things like that. I’m sure that would be great!

    Next should be a Halloween line. Oranges and blacks with candy corn and ghosts designs.

    Love your fabric.

    I am currently in love with your latest line of manly type fabrics because I have a house full of them and it can be hard to find nice ones to work with. Something with purple in it would be fun and a favorite color of mine.

    Lisa, I just continue to shake my head on “how can one woman have so much talent and energy in one vessel”…You are so many women’s role model. The Tins are gorgeous and I would be more than lucky to win, but I would be honored. As for a suggestion to a fabric line? My suggestion would be a green,,,,yes a green line of fabric. We see the blues, reds, creams, etc…..but how about huges of greens with hues of yellow,,,the world is endless. Names for the line are endless with the love of your gardening! What do you think?

  72. Lisa Lehmann Avatar

    Well Autumn is my favorite time of year, so my idea is Sunflower Gathering in rich autumn colors. Remember the book Autumn Gatherings? Love that book too!

    I have a antique quilt that has been hand down to me. Not sure of the original colors but now it looks pink and grey. I love the fresh look. Prints are tiny and the grey is a shirting. Recently I needed a red homespun and could not find it anywhere in Ga. My quilt shop told me they were not making much homespun anymore. I love adding woven homespun with regular cottons in my quilts. Bring us more wovens!!! I did find my red on my trip to PG Wisconsin last month. 😃

    Patriotic Gatherings. Blues,reds,cream,tan. A folksy design would be great with Uncle Sam applique

  88. Christie Avatar

    I’m loving the songbird gatherings Lisa! The frivolous tin would be a positive addition to my collection of the fabric line I have already purchased! As far as a new line, green came to mind immediately. With red being a favorite color of mine, I’d have to add the turkey red but not necessarily Christmas! Whatever you come up with will be fantastic!

As for a new line someday, I have been admiring g the yellow quilts with red and green in them. Somewhat similar to what you have, just a lot more yellow, a cleaner look one might say.

    I love the little tin idea. I like to buy little kits like that and take them to the cottage to work on and use them for Christmas gifts. I would like to see a fabric line from you that has to do with summer at the cottage. Like, log cabins, trees, bears, moose, fishing. I have had some fabric like that but the way you design fabric, I know it would be so much better.

  109. Patti Avatar

    Lisa, I love the Songbird line of fabrics, especially the little birds. I love these little conversation prints/shirtings, they are just so cute. And I would like to see more. What about a fall themed line (not that I want fall to arrive as I am still waiting for spring). But prints that have different leaves and/or mushrooms. Whatever you do it will be fabulous.

  110. Gloria Avatar

    Thank you for offering us a “giveaway.” I like everything you do so I don’t know that I can offer much as a suggestion but maybe something with tan, cheddars, brown, little green, maybe some orange but not Halloween orange. Can’t believe I am not suggesting something with RED since that is my favorite color and you do red very well. What about something with an Americana theme…then I get my red!

  111. Kathie Mehling Avatar

    I would like to see something in pink, blue and brown. These make some awesome quilts. Can’t wait to see what you pick/design.

    Maybe because I’m a preschool teacher, I love the primary blues, reds, greens, and yellows but in primitive hues. I haven’t seen anything you design that I don’t love so you can’t go wrong in my book 😊 Thanks for a chance to win!

    I love all your designs…was at your booth yesterday at the Chicago Int’l. Quilt Festival…Love, Love the new Songbird Gathering as I am a “red” fan. I love the teals and grays combinations with a dash of pinks??? Surprise us beautifully, as always!

    I love your Lake Gatherings. I would love to see colors that reflect the lake in the fall 🙂
    I love your new home pictures. Enjoy that beautiful world there!

    in honor of your migration to California think about doing wildflower gatherings..we have so many this year and I love the yellows and purples along with the greens..but you are so creative you probably thought about that already!

    I love everything Primitive Gatherings. I have been stuck on civil war, etc. type fabrics for quite some time. I would love to see some brighter colors again.

  127. gaillacey Avatar

    I don’t know how you keep the fun coming for us … so much inspiration to keep me in my sewing room! I’ve loved all of the Gatherings lines, but one of my favorites was an early line of all browns/neutrals (can’t remember the name of the line). I love the small prints, so since you’ve done miniature gatherings, how about another line of even smaller prints called ‘Petite Gatherings’ or ‘Minnow Gatherings’ (to go with the lakehouse) or ‘Itty-Bitty Gatherings’. I better focus on my work now! Thanks for the opportunity.

    I have been drawn to newsprint fabric lately. You could use sewing words/phrases or even farmhouse words. That seems to be the in thing now. I think maybe drawing colors from your Blue Barn painting would be beautiful…teal, gray, soft black and maybe a touch for yellow/gold. Maybe even make one of your prints on a larger scale to be used as a border. Love everything you do and thanks for the awesome giveaway.

    How AbOut some water colors, teals, aqua so, midnight blues, turquoise,…….

    I am thinking small writings that would cheer us up. Like your blog. Antique purples would be different and nice. I am enjoying making my Songbird Frivol that I purchased at the CA store.

  131. Bernice Henderson Avatar

    I’m thinking some writings on fabric to cheer us up, like your blog does. Antique purples with blacks and/or browns. I am enjoying Songbirds Gathering Frivol which I purchased while in your CA store.

    How about a true red, black and white line? Still use the same small prints, maybe some a little larger but this would be more “crisp”.

  133. Marianne Carree Avatar

    Wouldn’t it be time to have birds as a theme? In puple (like Heather), yellowish (like curry) and kind of blue (cobalt, if that’s the right name).
    Beginning to like your work more and more, and more……. .

  134. Barbara Rodin Avatar

    How about reds, greys, blacks, with some cream or teal

  135. Bernice Henderson Avatar

    I’m thinking antiqued purples with black and muted whites. Also with some proverbs or inspirational sayings in your lovely printing.

    Lisa: thinking of Teals and Taupes, (as the changing colors of the water and the warm sand) with a primitive twist. These colors could also be interchanged with the colors now at Anchor Point at some time. LOVE the Frivols tins, especially tin #7 🙂 Thank you for being an inspiration……

    Hi Lisa – I am thinking that as a Canadian, I would love to see something that both our fabulous countries enjoy. So how about a line with the theme of “hockey”? I am thinking of the origins of the game, on frozen ponds in the winter bundled up in sweaters and toques, skates and hockey sticks and of course, the puck! Am loving these little tins so am really hoping!!!

  144. Wendi Yates Avatar

    Hi Lisa – I am thinking, as a Canadian, of something that binds our two countries together and that is a love of hockey! My thoughts are to the beginnings of hockey on frozen ponds, bundled up in sweaters and toques, hockey sticks, ice skates and of course, the puck! So with hopeful heart, I enter my suggestion in your fabulous contest for this cute tin!!

  145. Kathy Avatar

    I think Patriotic or Americana is the way to go! Lots of cute red, white and blue, maybe some yellow and gray. All muted color of course to look old and primitive. Love your designs. Keep up the good work!

  146. Cecilia Avatar

    I would love to see more blue and cream along with some yellows.

    First…..I LOVE all your gatherings. You have an amazingly creative mind. What I love most about your gatherings is that the prints are small. So my suggestions is………drum roll, please……In The Country Gatherings. Little glass milk bottles, cows, clothespins, mason jars, strawberries, swings…….like that:) Thanks for asking my opinion:)

    I just scrolled through the comments and there are some great suggestions….Fireside Gatherings, Harvest Gatherings, Vintage Gatherings…. love those ideas! Personally I would like to see purples and grays. I haven’t given in to the urge to buy a Frivols tin yet, but Songbird Gatherings is really tugging at me!
