Triangle Gatherings Blocks 71,72,73 & 74


  I have just finished a week of hosting a great bunch of gals from CA they arrived on Sunday…We spent a week in WI…Day 1 (Monday)we visited Primitive Gatherings Quilt shop and got settled in….Day 2 we, had a wool workshop, where I encouraged them to pick their own wool colors and add some accents to a basic design I furnished them with…here are a few of them in progress…see the similarities and then their options…this workshop was a blast…and i think they thoroughly enjoyed it …also a tour of PG warehouse and my work studio, where they worked on their new designs…and then retired back to the retreat house. Day 3 was quilt shop road trip day to Country Sampler in Spring Green, Mill House Quilts in Wanakee, JJ Stitches in Sun Prairie and then Nancy’s Notions in Beaver Dam…What a day!!! We also stopped at a Farm market to see the pumpkin house!!! Day 4- we visited some local antique shops and found wonderful treasures!!!  Day 5 we stayed in and stitched at our retreat house…Day 6 was Cheese factory and VandeWalles Candy store and then to the Octoberfest activities on College Ave where there were tons craft booths and lots of food vendors along with lots of bands and lots of people-watching!!! you know that’s an activity right?….Day 7…Up early(4am) and off to the local airport (ATW) Were I did a round trip drop off in less than 25 minutes and was back in bed…until the next drop off at 11am…I loved hanging out with them and getting to know them all a lot better…after all we quilters are pretty much the same…Maybe you can join in one of our week retreats next year!!!  I’ll be posting them in December/January for 2018.

Our weather was perfect…for the start of Fall in WI…I wish the color was more abundant but I guess you can’t have it all…above, my real/live centerpiece on our farm table…love the new neutral fall style…

I know I gave you 4  Triangle Gatherings blocks…you can handle it!!! I had to play a little catch up after this week!!! Tomorrow I leave for my 2nd to a last final teaching of the year…to Michigan, Macomb County Quilt Guild…trunk show tomorrow night, workshop Tuesday and home Tuesday night!!! How sweet is that…I have some wonderful prizes for this teaching event.. don’t miss it if you are in the area!!!

Stitch on my friends!!!

    I’m curious to know what the clear material is that you’ve printed grateful on for stitching on the dark background. I am constantly struggling to find solutions for transferring words on dark wool. Thank you!

    Thanks for the new TGB Lisa!! I am sooooo far behind I may NEVER catch up! LOL But I love all the blocks and will keep stitching away as I get a moment! I know you are busy, yet you find time to keep cranking these little beauties out.

    I L.O.V.E. the “Gatherings” pumpkin mats! They are just beautiful…by any chance is there a pattern in your shop for these that you taught at your retreat? The acorns on the penny flaps (???? :)) are so cute.

    Safe travels!

    Omg. I am so envious of the California quilters. What a fabulous retreat! And Lisa, you are such a great host. I too will watch for the pattern.

    What is the “plastic” material they are stitching through for ‘Grateful’?

    Love the Grateful pattern, Lisa!
    Since I am saving the Triangle patterns for a less stressful time in my life, you can throw four at a time out there and I won’t complain! Thank you!

    Lisa, I was wondering how many total blocks in the triangle gatherings. Pretty table runner.

    I love this Grateful Pumpkin design, and those sunflowers. Glad to hear that it will be a pattern soon. Are the backgrounds wool?

    Are you developing a book with all of the triangle blocks. It would be great?
