DAY 3-STAR & STRIPE GATHERINGS
I am really excited about Star & Stripe Gatherings…the book turned out beautifully and the fabric line is even better…and I want to thank MAGGIE for quilting ALL the quilts in the book in a very short time….I only quilted a few of the runners and nothing else…she did anything that was considered a quilt. Amy and Jean made a lot of the quilts in the book while I ran around the country teaching and designing/writing and running Primitive Gatherings. Jessica, Dru, Judy, Debbie, Joanne and the rest of the shop girls keep both the stores running as smoothly as possible…Lisa(Elle) and the warehouse/kitting girls keep the bills payed and the kits coming…Tina and Whitney produce all the extraordinary wool coming out one yard at a time….Judi keeps the website full of products…the guys, Nick, Jake and Scott keep up with the shipping/transportation/carpentry, maintenance of cargo between three buildings and quilt shows and shipping to shops around the country…most of these people are behind the scenes and do not get their names in the book but they all are a big part of Primitive Gatherings.
Back to the Needful Things…All of us reading this NEED fabric for our survival/well being…and this fabric line and book are going to be the newest on the market…So we are offering you $5 off our book reg.24.99, Sale $20 and 10% off any kit pre-ordered for this event, all the prices listed are the regular price…the 10% off discount is taken off in the cart. All of the projects are listed in the Day 3 category as well. These offers are only good until 12/31/2018. The fabrics do not arrive until sometime in January 2019 and then we need time to kit them all which doesn’t take that long but I just want you to know it’s not a one day turnaround. So the offer for 10% off the kits and 20% off pre cuts are pre orders. The book is ready to ship if you only order the book… if you order a book with a kit we will ship it together.

Constitution 60 x 60″…This quilt is a Moda Kit meaning it will come in a special printed box…This is one of those nice couch/lap quilts…but two kits would make a nice bed quilt 80″x 100 (80 blocks}…We love this fussy cut log cabin block quilt. You also could mix in some Liberty and Old Glory Gatherings to make it super scrappy…come on… I know some you have a tower of FQs or F8’s sitting pretty on your shelf or some scraps at least leftover.

Independence Day...72″x72″. This unique block is fun to make…there is also a method to the block/color placement which adds some fun to the quilt. The red blocks form a diamond the center and outer blue blocks are the darkest navy and the 4 inside blue blocks are the lighter navy… Kit. Reg. $150.
Pillows– I am so into pillows lately…
Proud to be an American-17″x 22″…is a stunning display of quilting skills…These blocks are from previous “gathering” lines as well as Star & Stripe. Kit Reg. $17 Pillow form available as well. I did not have time but I think I would have quilted this pillow if I was making it again…

I Pledge Allegiance wallhanging(see framed piece by Constitution quilt) or pillow…Once you start doing embroidery/redwork you cannot help but keep doing it…I absolutely love to hand stitch words…it is really not that difficult at all and they go pretty fast…Kit Reg. $26.50 Fabric with threads
U.S. Home pillow– 20″ x 20″-This simple pillow can be stitched up in no time!…I think a red version would be possible as well…Kit Reg. $22
Life is a Journey…18×22″ without frame…I need to admit I do not know how the states are situation in our country…there are 50 of them to remember…so making this helped a little but I hope there is never a quiz I need to take that my life depends on…but it was fun to hand stitch this and I will find some cool pins to mark where I have been…Kit Reg. $27 background & threads..Frame is $45 and is shown in the book…I don’t know where my pic is of the whole frame…but too late to change it now…
Red, White & Blue kitchen towels…Where’s the red one? Yup you guessed it…it did not get finished for the book…but…if you order the towel set we will send you the pattern for the third towel!!!

We are jumping with JOY about how this book has turned out…We hope you find something in this that makes you want to purchase our book and make a few things from it!!! I can’t wait to have these all back in my house for the Summer!Click HERE to go to the Kit page.
To be entered in a drawings for a Kit from the book or Moda has given me some precuts I am willing to part with!! Please comment at the end of this post and tell me about your favorite Veteran…you can tell me as little or a lot…I promise to read them all. Winners will be posted on New Years Day! I especially love talking with the old Veterans when I see them selling the Poppies, my summer car has many many poppies hanging from the rear view mirror…
This little candlemat/bedside tablemat is made with leftovers from the Road to Arlington kit…If the kit prices seam high remember that sometimes there is leftover fabric…we try to cut the smallest we can but Moda wants 1/8 yards and such….not 6″x 12″ This is good because you never have to worry about making a mistake…we always pad the yardage, but NOT to extreme…where you can make a second quilt.
I’m going on another adventure today…watch my FB posts. All for now my friends…LB
