found treasure…!

One of the best things about visiting other states is going to their antique shops and coming home with a prize or two…or so…Here are a few from my last visit to Texas…lisa bongeanI get this feeling that there is something out there just waiting for me to discover it…this tiny boat baby quilt must have been sending out the vibes and just about the last store we went into…there it was proudly displayed, just waiting for me to notice in in one of the many booths…also the tiny ironing board and the smallest little iron!  Then I’m always a sucker for letters in a box…what can I spell… with what’s here…lisa bongean

so speaking of treasures…I have to send a few of our Primitive Gatherings treasures off to new homes where they will bring joy and be loved…we have added quilts to the ETSY STORE…just click the link and you will be there to see some real booty…maybe ones quilted by a famous quilter or two!!!…see what treasures you can bring home!

Have a great Saturday…its beautiful here…lots of workers here at the lake…(that turd brown house color with more turn brown trim… may finally be out of my life…)they are working on the outside of “boathouse”…today I may swim like a kid again…86 degrees here today…Yay!IMG_6863

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. Of course that little sailboat quilt had your name written all over it! Perfect for your new space! Maybe it will be the inspiration for your next summer block of the week?

  2. Your finds are fabulous. Enjoy them and thus beautiful weekend. Hugs to you and Nick. ❤️💙

  3. With that kind of weather I bet you’re glad you have the lake right there it’s supposed to be in the high 90s today and going up to 100 by Monday here. The little boat quilt is cute and I can just imagine what you’ll put for words in it. Enjoy your day hugs Liz

  4. That little sailboat quilt couldn’t have found a better home. So perfect for a lakeside gathering! : )
    Oh, enjoy the water–sounds heavenly.

  5. Lisa, this quilt is so fitting for you. I think you should replicate it and sell it kitted.

  6. Hi Lisa, Antique stores and estate sales are so much fun! I love searching for that special find! I try to go whenever I visit Ohio. I’m jealous of your swim it’s 93 here in CO. Vince & I are visiting to wrap up a few things before the move next month. The baby quilt is adorable, wondering if a guy made it, hence the word “tit” highlughted… Or maybe they just had a very hungry baby!!! Stay cool… hugs, Jakey
