Hey Everyone!!! Glad you stopped by my blog today for the Moda Block Heads 2…Today is MY day and I am super excited that you are here…I am one of the original 6 Blockheads! I am glad we added a few more designers to the party this year…after all the more the merrier!!! My name is Lisa Bongean and I am Primitive Gatherings! I have been a Moda Fabric Designer for 8 years already…whoa time flies when your having a blast!!! Click HERE and you will see an upclose look at my next fabric line that is coming in October!!! I can’t wait…Hopefully you will see a fabric or two that you will need to add to your personal collection…But in the meantime while I wait for Flower Garden Gatherings to arrive I am working on designs for our state’s shop hop fabric line for Wisconsin…I know probably not that thilling if you have nothing to do with Wisconsin…but it is REALLY exciting for us…in lots of ways. Then my designer yardage for my Quilt Market line has come in and we are frantically starching and plotting all the quilts…here is a peek at that line…which we will have a book coming out with the same name…Star & Stripe Gatherings…..the book will include 10 quilts and a bunch of other things like pillows, wool mats, punchneedle and so on…
This is one of the stitchery projects too…Now back to the MBH2-Block 12 is called Jace’s Star named after my only Grandson at least for only a couple of months…when we will be welcoming ‘little man 2″. We are so pumped about this…Big Brother Jace will be amost 4 when 2 comes along at Christmas time….here is Jace…aka “little man” painting his MiMi a masterpiece…
Click HERE to print the pattern
Here are all my blocks…(except 10) I just did not find the time to get it done…see it’s ok to be behind…they are all piled up here … 6’s 12’s and a 24″er…I love these blocks…I love that there some easy one that only take a very short time to complete…because I know I am not the only one who has lots to stitch and am not just waiting for the the next BH to come out on Wedenesday…I am currently hand stitching these wool appliques for our summer project called Twilight Garden…which will be a Block of the Month soon…
AND…I am at the machine piecing 240 of these blocks call Star Studded Event which will also be another Block of the month..I am at 180 so I have ONLY…(lol) 60 more to go…So those of you who know me know I “sometimes” do things just a little more challenging then most… when you see my block next to the others here you will see is it 6″…but just take your time…starch your fabrics first and then cut and piece as accurate as you can…and you will have a beautiful block!!!
Thank You for hanging around here this long listening to me ramble about what is going on around here so let’s do a give-away to celebrate my 1st block for MBH2 …If you are new to the blog…please leave a comment/ or subscribe to my blog and say HI! and where your are from…and anything you want to share with the group….if you are already signed up please still comment and I will pick a winner for these two charms packs of my next line that you cannot buy yet!!! The rainbow colors (all shown in the header on the top of the blog) and the backgrounds!!! Good Luck
Make sure you visit all the designers and see their version of Jace’s Star…

Love what you do! Your block is fabulous!
Oh sooo pretty! You make the prettiest babies and by that I mean fabric, and they all grow up to be fabulous quilts!
Love your Blog.
Your next line of fabrics look like they will be perfect for quilts of valor. I plan on making a few of those in the future.
Congratulations on grandson #2 Lisa and hope hubby is doing well after all he has been through. Your Twilight Garden is just beautiful…you are so talented! We met in Maine, I took one of your classes and enjoyed it very much. Thanks for the giveaway.
Love your new fabric line and am going to tryout small star block!
I love the block! Thanks for the chance to win!
Lisa Twilight Garden is stunning! What a tease with those charm squares!!! I want to see them all. Loving the new line and everything you do!!! Inspiration overload!
Love your Blockhead block – always a challenge with those small pieces.
What’s not to love about Flower Garden Gatherings? Thanks for offering this giveaway.
Hi from NY. I love your block and am anxious to get back to piecing Blockheads 2. I am a little behind but will catch up. Summer is fast coming to an end which is sad, but then I can have some more quilting time.
So glad all is well with your family! You’ve had quite a year! Love this block! It reminds me of your winter star, which is my husband’s favorite!
Excitement all around. Baby boy #2 on the way. A new red, white & blue line on the way. Looking forward to baby pics & looking forward to using the new R-W-B fabrics. Thanks for the give away.
Just saw the link to Flower Garden Gatherings, LOL. Awesome! I’m working on that little Jacob’s Ladder quilt I bought as a kit at your store the last time I was there. Love those mini’s. I’m from the UP of Michigan where it’s starting to feel like fall. If it gets too hot down there come on up!
I’ve been following you for sometime now, though I don’t always comment. Love your fabric and patterns!
Everytime I see your newest fabric line, I think it is my favorite. Now the Stars and Stripes are going to be my new favorite. Can’t wait to see the book that goes with. I live in Green Bay, so the Wisconsin Shop Hop fabric will be a treat too. Thanks for all you do for us quilters.
Hi from Laurel, Maryland. I LOVE your new line!
Love the block!!! I am behind as well, very behind, but planning to play a lot of catch up starting this weekend!! Hope all is well with the family and I love the new line!
Love your new lines. Cannot wait to see them. Great colors. Barb
Your new line looks wonderful, Lisa! And I LOVE the greys, blacks, and creams you’re using for your Blockhead 2 quilt. You always inspire us to make better and smaller blocks! 🙂
I too have a grandson named Jace. Love the Flower Garden Gatherings, as well as all of your other fabrics.
Thanks for the continued inspiration! I live in San Antonio, Texas so I only get a chance to see you and your family at the Houston Quilt Festival. Can’t wait until November!
Lisa, you blow me away! I have trouble even READING about all you do and get done! Do you find more than 24 hours in a day? Your new fabricline is GORGEOUS! I also am a SBOW Twilight member and was thrilled to see the center. Breathless in the NW!
I’m really enjoying the Block Heads–1 and 2! Your blocks are challenging, but that is how we learn! Congratulations on the new addition, will be twice the fun!
Lisa, I love your new line of fabric, it’s beautiful. Can’t wait to purchase.
I’m so happy for you. Little Man will always be number one, but you will
love number two as much. Thank you Lisa for all that you do. Happiness and
I love everything you do…I have been a follower of your Summer BOWs for a few years now – I am far behind on completing any of them, but I retire in 15 months…and then I can devote some serious time to them. I love the details in all your patterns and am always looking forward to what you come up with next. Thank you for sharing your talents with us!
Congrats on the new grandchild! Grew up in Kenosha, Wisconsin but moved to Ontario, Canada as a young woman and never left!
Your new line is gorgeous!
always a great little read to catch a glimpse of your days thx
Love the new fabric line! I’d love to win those two bundles!
You are amazing.Just what I need to challenge myself to a small quilt.
I love reading your blogs . I have learned a lot from you! I am working on Moon Garden and love it. I love all your postings with Jace . Grandkids are the best ! Treasure those moments.
You must be the busiest person on earth with all that you do. Congrats on the new grandchild on the way. I can’t imagine how you’d react when a girl comes along. Love your new fabric line. Your talent is amazing and thank you for share it with the world.
OOH, love the new line of fabric and can’t wait for the new book. I have 2 grandsons and they are the best!!!
Lisa, I have been subscribed for quite some time and I am in awe of all you manage to get finished! I feel such a strong pull from your fabrics as they are the colors and style I really love to see in quilts.I can hardly wait to get some of the new line in my stash! Best wishes for you and your (growing) family and what a GREAT Christmas present. Hope you are on the other side of Nick’s troubles and he continues to be ok.
LOVE LOVE LOVE your patterns, fabric, blogs, videos, Facebook groups, and sew alongs! I can not get enough! You have also inspired me to give appliqué a try! Looking forward to seeing you at the Houston Quilt show! Maybe I will get to WI and visit your shop! Hope so!!
Wow! Love the next fabric line. They’ll look great a quilt of valor. Will need to watch impatiently at my favorite quilt shop in Indianapolis for them to arrive:)
Hi! I’m in central Illinois, about 30 miles from what they call the center of U.S. I’m working on that lovely Twilight Garden, they are all prepped but only #1 is finished. I think I’ll start the center as soon as the kit arrives. Grandkids are the best, I also have 2 grandsons.
I signed up to follow your site. I love your Block Head block. Your blocks are so sharp and crisp. I’m from MO. Thanks for sharing.
So many beautiful projects and fabrics! I love your Blockheads block designs.
Love your fabric lines! I struggle with all of the small pieces but “done” is better than perfect. I’m getting a lot of practice. Thanks for the challenge! Also, as an ex-Wisconsinite I will have to have some of the 2019 Shop Hop fabric that you are designing. Planning my summer trip early!
Love the colors in the new line. I am from Michigan-the middle of the Mitten.
I tried to sign up to get your posts but it says you are already signed up. I was signed up and looked forward to receiving them but they suddenly stopped and I can’t seem to get them back. Probably been more than a year now. I hate to miss anything from you, love what you do, thanks for sharing your talent with the world! Maybe you could have someone look into why I don’t get your blogs anymore?
Hi Lisa! I’m doing BH 2 with the same fabrics that you’re using and I LOVE it! Also from Wisconsin and looking forward to your Shop Hop fabs coming out. Got a sneak peak on the WI Shop Hop facebook page and they’re beautiful. Thanks for all you do . . .
Looking forward to my time with you at the Black Stallion? Wouldn’t I be the hit of the party if I had the new line,
I love your fabric, can’t wait to get my hands on the next line.
Love new fabrics! From Normal IL and I’m still working on my 4 inch Triangle Gatherings blocks. Truly enjoy tiny piecing!!
I’m from SW Iowa. It feels like fall here. Love the fall season. I really enjoyed your post this morning. Your primitive heart speaks to my primitive heart. Thanks for the giveaway. Have a great Wed.
Another great line coming, can’t wait! Congratulations on #2. If I had known grandkids were this much fun, I would have had them first!
Hi, I’m from Lake County, CA. I went to Quiltstock in Dallas and learned so much from you. I’m now not afraid to starch my fabric. I love your fabric and patterns.

I’m in Wisconsin…and doing both MBH2 and your awesomely beautiful wool SBOW. Want you to know I bypassed traveling with my husband to Alaska and compensated by treating myself to your wool SBOW.
Your blocks are wonderful. I love your new line of fabric too. Thanks for giving us a chance to win some. Grandbabies are just wonderful. Enjoy them to the fullest, lots of hugs and rocking time. They grow up way to fast. Our youngest grandbaby is in college and we have 13 great grandchildren!!
Love the block, and so glad that you will soon have little man #2. I see that Jace is a budding artist, just like his grandmother.
So pretty and I love your colour choice. I keep looking at the Block heads blocks that pop into my mailbox each week and then look at my “need to finish” pile …but your block has got me and well….the “need to finish” pile can wait a day. I need to make this block lol.
Love your fabrics and seeing what all you are working on. Thanks for sharing.
Great block design. I love to sew the little piecings.
These fabrics are beautiful! Thanks for introducing me to them! I used to live in Hudson, WI, so I understand your WI excitement! I live in Mooresville, NC–not far from Charlotte!
Beautiful fabric line. This block will be a challenge, but i am up to it.
Terri Oklahoma I’m doing the SBOW and yes I’m behind but loving the pattern thinking winter might not be long enough to get this all done. LOL
Love the new fabric line! Of course ,you haven’t had a line i didn’t love 😊
You already know what a PG fabrics zealot I am, lol! All that badgering I did to find out when the new line is being released… the closer it gets, the more I think I NEED! 🤣

Too many projects going on at one time and also doing blockheads too. Keep up great work, you are amazing!

Hello, Lisa. I’ve been an admirer of your fabric and patterns for many years. My current project is Moon Garden and I’m enjoying the patterns. It’s my first wool to cotton applique project. Thanks for the peek at your new fabric lines. Flower Garden Gatherings colors are stunning.

New to your blog, but have loved your fabric lines for years! Never fails to inspire me…
Hi from NY. Congratulations on grandson #2 being on the way. It is interesting seeing what you are up to, what projects your working on. Beautiful rainbow fabrics. Nice pinwheel star for blockheads 2.
Love the colors of the Oct line….. and then the red white and blue caught my eye as well. Where to find these lines in the metroplex? So many shops have cut back on inventory. I guess it is time to go get some starch……. count me in on the charm packs please.
Love the new line. Enjoy participating in the second blockheads adventure. Thanks Lisa
I!m from Minnesota. Your tiny blocks inspire me.

Hi! Mindy here from Spring Hill, Kansas. Love your fabrics but even more, I love your wool applique projects. Can’t wait to see the new book!
Just one question: How do you do it all and be such a great grandmother at the same time?
Jace’s Star is a beautiful block. I am so impressed with all you are working on and completing. Prayers for you and Nick.
P.S. How can painter Jace stay so clean without an apron!
I don’t know how you do all that you do—- but I’m so happy that you do!! Love all your designs and your energy!

I loved your Floral Gatherings so I’m sure I’ll love this new line as well!
I am a better quilter due to you as you challenge me to try more difficult things all the time. I think these 2 little charm packs would be perfect with some of your triangle papers!
Perfect piecing and pressing make an accurate bock! Looks great!
You are so creative and motivating! And always ready to share instructions and tips with us. Thank you!
Those are some beautiful new fabrics in your new line. Georgeous block too!
Hello Lisa, Love your new fabric lines
Congratulations on little man #2! Beautiful block- can’t wait to tackle it!
Looking forward to all you have in store for us (especially Twilight Garden!). Blessings to you and your family from your friends in Iowa!
So much beautiful fabric and patterns! They are all gorgeous! I am really looking forward to seeing the Star Studded Event BOM, it looks wonderful!
I aspire to piece the way you do! I’m pulling out the spray starch and trying it your way!! Thanks a bunch for all you do!
Lisa, your work is amazing. I love everything you do. I will see you next month in NC at your retreat with the ladies from Olde Green Cupboard. Thanks for the chance to win. Congrats on your 2nd grand baby. Hope Nick continues to heal.
Lisa, your star block looks like a challenge but I love it and can see it in my future quilts, as well as, Blockheads 2.
My husband, Jim, is retired military and a member of a veterans group here in Southeast Texas, that does military funerals. It is their priviledge to do nearly 300 funerals a year honoring their fellow veterans.
Our church’s Ladies Aid group makes honor quilts for our members who are veterans. Your new fabric line will be ideal for them. I can’t wait umtil we can get our hands on some!
Thank you for your designs and input.
Love your fabric lines and patterns ;o) I’m doing the Star Studded BOW and love it. People think I’m crazy for doing it but they love it too. Starch is the key with this quilt ;o)
Lisa, you are a very busy, busy girl!
Love the new line! Believe it or not, I’m actually caught up on my mbh2’s! (Except for today’s block, that is!)😉 Looking forward to see how it all goes together. Have a blessed day!
I’m new to your blog, reading from the UK, but I’ll definitely follow from now on. I love your block, and I’m sure Jace is thrilled to have his own star.
Congratulations on the soon arrival of Grand #2…..they are wonderful! I have 15 and LOVE each and everyone of them! I love your fabrics and designs…..so very beautiful and they just speak to me.
I love your fabrics since they work so well for small pieces. I look forward to your SBOW each year and have a few iI am working on and one I have completed. They are always wonderful.

What beautiful fabric. I am obsessed with your patriotic designs.
You have inspired me to try tinier and tinier piecing. I love complex blocks.
Love your new colours. How much for a bolt of each??? LOL.
