Block 35!!! Triangle Gatherings..


Happy Friday Everyone!!

I am currently on the beautiful island of Mackinac…Getting ready to spend a week with almost 200 quilters/stitchers  We are at the Needlework Seminar put on by the Musser Family who own the Grand Hotel.  Mrs Musser loved the needle arts…so we are honored to be apart of this special experience here at the Grand Hotel..

I believe I saw an ad for the 2018 seminar in the Paducah Show book with an allstar cast of teachers…and if you can… you need to come to one of these events here on this special island!!  We are ferried in…the horse carriage brings us up to the hotel (there are no cars here) the meals are amazing…and then there is so much to do…but we are working…so we have to squeeze things in when we can…We got on the ferry in Mackinaw City…The huge bridge connecting the UP to upper lower MI…

The Island..can you see Fort Mackinac on the left?

This cart is hauling all of “our” stuff for the week…there’s a store in there as well as our sewing essentials to make our quilts for market!! You arrive in style here…will post more I promise….

We are hoping that fabric arrives today!!! Wish us luck, prayers and everything else…as the 16 draws closer everyday!!!  If we don’t get it today that means Monday!!! which is a lot of days lost…

So in the meantime I plan on stitching more TG blocks…while waiting…so here’s another for you!!!



love seeing your blocks keep posting!!!  Lisa

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. Sure hope you fabric comes. Can’t imagine the pressure! Be glad to help if needed.

  2. Hi Lisa, oh, that looks like sooo much fun!! What beautiful weather. The hotel & buggy reminds me of the movie “Somewhere In Time.” Keeping my fingers crossed that your fabric arrives today!! Thank you for sharing and letting us vicariously live thru your adventures! It really is a treat! Enjoy!! Hugs, Jakey

    1. I haven’t been for the Needle Arts Seminar but I did stay there about 10 years ago with my Mother. It’s an awesome place, the food was so pretty we hated to eat it, and the geraniums were beautiful!

  3. Welcome to Michigan. You said you were out on the Islam and all I could think about was brrrrrrrrrrr ….. Hope you stayed warm. 🙂 Lee Ann Gross

  4. Oh, how gorgeous!! I have always wanted to attend the Needlearts when you are there but never know how to figure out when to sign up and how!!! Best of luck on the fabric arriving today — am so enjoying the TG!!!

  5. I had the pleasure of visiting that island way back in 1984. Would have loved to been able to go into the Grand Hotel, unfortunately time was an issue. I was with my parents and we only spent the day. Would love to go back. The Needlearts retreat sounds like the perfect reason to revisit. Will have to look into it for the next time.
