Triangle Gatherings Block 61 & 62

I realize some of these posts are not coming as fast and as consistent as some of you would like…lol…but I reminded everyone in the beginning that I lead a very busy life…and life sometimes throws things at you that you have to deal with and things get put on the back burner….we all have this happen to us, I am not immune from it…I will be sharing what has happened in a post when I have a little more time…but its something major and we are going to need your prayers…  I am asking that you do not send me comments like this…

Is 60 the end of the blocks? 8-16-2017 no posting?

I have removed this from the comment section, but it does still hurt that one feeling I still have left…

We have 4 1/2 months left and 30 blocks…we can and will get them in…here are two more…

Block 62

I am in Dallas…at Moda working with a bunch of wonderful designers…OK… we are having fun too!!!!But I want to share with you some of the photos from the classes/sit and sew’s we have had…

Kathy…made Penny Path from the American Patchwork & Quilting issue I am featured in ……Look how BIG she made it!!!  So Awesome!!!
These are antique dresdens….look at that quilting!!! OMG!!! Roxy’s hexi project…Her and her husband just arrived home from a 4000 mile motorcycle trip!!! I wonder if you can do hexies while riding on the bike? lol…

Another wool project…we helped get that edge finished!!!

 

Terry had two projects…one hand pieced another kit from PG- Small Treasures Book…she added a fab border… This was a bag…. Then we all stared in amazement at Lori’s hexi project…look at this organization…so impressive…Makes me want a hex project!!!!

I will share more…with some more blocks soon…take care my friends…and let get some stitching done!!!LB

    Without a doubt prayers are being sent your way. This show and tell is fabulous. The talent and creativity is amazing! I know many of them have been inspired by you. Thanks for your new blocks. I’m a bit behind but I’ll catch up soon.

    Let’s face it — there are way too many rude and obnoxious people in the world today!!! This is a FREE project, so no one should be complaining!!! And there shouldn’t be any complaints even if you don’t get all the promised blocks out until 2018 – it’s a FREE project.

    Take your time, Lisa. The blocks and ALL of your patterns/projects are lovely! I, myself, could use some extra time on this triangles thing (LOL)..but, really, does it matter how fast we do this? I would think not! I so wish I lived closer to your shop, I would love a class/sew along. That hexi quilt makes me want to start back on mine! Take care of you and yours!

    Prayers for you and your family. We are a quilting community that should support each have other. You and everyone else have a life outside of quilting and should not be so self-centered. Do what you can, when you can!

    Your block 62 is sewn together wrong, the left side needs to be frog stitched. But I am loving TG even though I only have them done through 51. I look forward to each new one released. Thank you.

    Sending prayers your way Lisa. Though I am not doing the triangle QAL(it’s been HARD to resist) I have appreciated your generous spirit to share your talent freely! I have a bag of HST left over from a previous quilt, and I am going to use your posts for inspiration. I just couldn’t bear dumping all those triangle scraps in the trash, so I sewed them together and will cut them down, all because of your inspiration with this QAL. Blessings to you and your family.

    Thank you for all the FREE patterns and inspiration you share with us. I have been collecting the Triangle Gatherings blocks and hope to use up the 2000 HST I received in a national exchange 2 years ago. It has to wait until the Christmas gifts are completed and in the mail. Prayers being sent……take time out for the more important things in life..that’s family and take care of yourself. Hugs

    Lisa, dear, you are amazing to me. I want to grow up to be just like you–but I’m much older already! So that’s not going to happen! Please know that we ALL love to stitch along with your creations–whenever they arrive. And you are absolutely right . . . we ALL have things unexpectedly thrown at us. Life has its challenges, large and small, for everyone. We need to remember that our Super Hero Lisa is human, too. It’s hard to imagine it when you are so special. Love you! And sending loads and loads of prayers for you and your family. And lastly, there are many devotees in your many groups who would do anything to help you. Count me among them. Just reach out to us, and we’ll be there. Hugs and more hugs!

    Lifting you up in prayer Lisa. Thank you for all that you do. I’m afraid I am behind on the triangle gatherings and have fallen behind on my SBOW. As hard as I try to keep up, I am afraid I commit to more than I can keep up with.

    Lisa, I think you know how much I love you and all that you do; but if not I LOVE YOU! Your an amazing woman who I’m proud to know, your heart is generous and loving and you do so much for everyone of us stitchers. I don’t think you realize just how much you give to some of us and I’m not talking projects. Oh btw, I’m officially retired now if you need someone to come help out I’m willing just call… Also to answer your question YES you could probably do hexies on the back of the bike but my question is WHY? Enjoy the ride and stitch when you stop… and if that’s not enough to convince you imagine how you’d feel if you dropped just one at 60mph lol imagine finding that! As always you and yours are in my prayers, and I mean it just call Hugs Liz

    Lisa, Thanks for the two blocks. I am stunned someone would complain about not getting this pages. My goodness, I have no idea how you get done what you do. I am very thankful and grateful to you for giving me these patterns. It is way above the call of duty. My prayers are with you and your family. (No idea why yet the Lord knows so that is all that counts.) Hope your little man is ok.  Looks like everyone had fun in Dallas.  Take care, Edie From: Lisa Bongean’s Weblog To: eyvfrasier@yahoo.com Sent: Thursday, August 17, 2017 1:48 PM Subject: [New post] Triangle Gatherings Block 61 & 62 #yiv4085265733 a:hover {color:red;}#yiv4085265733 a {text-decoration:none;color:#0088cc;}#yiv4085265733 a.yiv4085265733primaryactionlink:link, #yiv4085265733 a.yiv4085265733primaryactionlink:visited {background-color:#2585B2;color:#fff;}#yiv4085265733 a.yiv4085265733primaryactionlink:hover, #yiv4085265733 a.yiv4085265733primaryactionlink:active {background-color:#11729E;color:#fff;}#yiv4085265733 WordPress.com | lisabongean posted: “I realize some of these posts are not coming as fast and as consistent as some of you would like…lol…but I reminded everyone in the beginning that I lead a very busy life…and life sometimes throws things at you that you have to deal with and things ” | |

    Lisa, I see how hard you work, I am in awe of all the great designs you post. Triangle Gatherings is one more genierous gift you give to the quilting community regularly. You are living the greatest tragedy that can befall a parent and powering through. You are an unusually strong woman. I hope you can focus on the love and admiration we all have for you. Perhaps we need to say it more often so that unfair thoughtless comments will be pushed aside, as they should be. Meanwhile, you are in my thoughts as we await more news.

    Lisa, I am very happy that you are dishing these blocks out a couple at a time, once, maybe twice a week. I’m busy too, but I’ll use these blocks (ok, probably not all) and I love your newsy notes with the blocks.

    Lisa, was so good to chat with you a little bit at your wonderful warehouse sale! All the goodies are out of the bags and tonight, I start finding a home for them in the lab….Or that was the plan, till I saw the new blocks! Woohoo! the prefect excuse to sew before we’re all settled after our 25 day trip. Have been praying and will definitely continue to do just that. You guys can just count on that for as long as you need it. Thanks again for this great project…it’s sew much fun! PS….remember to breathe!

    I’m so sad to hear that your life apparently has taken another challenging twist. I’ve been following you for many years and I know that there has been more than one sad thing that life has thrown at you AND Nick and I’ve always been excited when I see the good things like your trail of success in your business. I still have one of your old… was it Backyard Quilts patterns? Whatever the challenge is, you have my prayers Lisa.

  44. August 17, 2017 at 9:49 pm

    I have only been saving the TG patterns for when my life slows down a little. The timing is not an issue for me–and shouldn’t be for anyone, considering this is a gift from you.
    Don’t know what your needs are currently, but God does, so I will just raise your family to Him in prayer.

    We love what you do Lisa and are so thankful for your generosity always, nor do most of us take for granted what you do for us. Unfortunately there us always someone who can’t help themselves but to whinge or complain. Luckily that is the minority but hurtful nonetheless.

    Here’s my take on the remark you removed!!! You are giving us REE block patterns. I, and I’m sure, 99.99 percent of us appreciate that. I can’t imagine, as busy as you are, and as generous as you have been about freebies – that anyone would have the guts to make that sort of comment. You’re at the top of my list and I truly appreciate you and love your store and website. Thanks for all you do.

    I have another take on the comment asking if 60 was the end. I don’t know who wrote it, but when I read (and re-read) it, I don’t think the writer was intending to be rude. I think that perhaps she was simply asking if 60 was the last block. Perhaps we need to extend some grace and patience to one another. Whatever is going on in Lisa’s life is clearly stressful, and perhaps this was an innocent question that just tipped the scale. And that’s understandable. I do wish that many of those who left a comment had not been so quick to call the writer rude so quickly. We all appreciate Lisa’s blocks, and I am sure we can all appreciate that something more important is going on in her life.

    Lisa We love you! Most of us know that you juggle so many things… you do so much for us and sometimes life gets in the way! You need to do what you need to do… and shame anybody for saying otherwise. I personally am happy it gives me time to catch up after enjoying the summer. Maybe some of you people need to get a life! Even the loneliest people need to find friends…. we can not live by quilting alone💕

    Thank you, Lisa, for these free blocks. I haven’t touched my sewing machine for awhile as gardens, canning, & summer activities have taken over. But looking forward to them this winter & that’s how my life is busy. So I know how your life is even more so as you’re also running a business, teaching, & looking forward to new projects. Then a curve ball is thrown at you. May the knowledge of the thoughts & prayers by your many quilting friends lift you & yours.

    Prayers and hugs from MN, thank goodness you don’t throw everything at us at once, this way we can keep up. I do so appreciate how busy you are and surely would not want you to burn out. I am currently working on the geranium basket. Love you works of art, and we should all be grateful that you take the time to do a free project for us!!!
