Welcome to Spring Quilt Market 2019!

I would love to share with you all what we have been working on to get to this great event!  Lots of hours late night  & weekend stitching along with overnight shipping from our fabulous machine quilters to make this all possible…

Here is the Primitive Gatherings booth…Featuring the all Quilts & Pillows from Farmhouse Gatherings...which is a beautiful flannel line of fabrics…everyone who see this line…falls deeply in love with it…especially the men.



I just want to dive in…and nap..really.IMG_2803IMG_2802IMG_2801IMG_2800

all of the above quilt and pillow kits will be going on our website soon for you to order…everything is coming…book and fabric in July….so kits will be ready shortly after.

IMG_2799Then here are the quilts from Val’s new book we are publishing for her…Fun, Friends & Fat Quarters…12 quilts from 12 Fat quarters…plus an extra bonus quilt to make 13…I will post more in detail about this book and projects in another post…

Twighlight Garden…in all it’s glory…I will be posting soon about this summer’s block of the month…IMG_2798

then..next…my Moda designer booth featuring Urban Farmhouse Gatherings…another book with 6 quilt and 6 pillows…featuring regular cotton fabrics vintage prints and colored for todays home decorating…Coming in October...I know..that’s a long time away…


IMG_2824I am having a blast visiting and promoting our offerings but It is really quite easy this time…seeing these quilts in person just draws everyone in…this grey fabric line does not do justice with photos…but in person it is spectacular…and different…So it is really fun when they discover this is PRIMITIVE GATHERINGS.

I am having a little contest in the booth to test the designing skills of some of the QM attendees….here is the SOME of the fun from day one…more to come as I could load any more pics today…must have some kind of limit! Dumb computers…or operator error???IMG_2832IMG_2834IMG_2836IMG_2838IMG_2840IMG_2843IMG_2845IMG_2846IMG_2848IMG_2850IMG_2851IMG_2852

I am so glad you all loved the Pillow Tutorial yesterday…now you know why you will need it!  I think I can make that zipper back blind folded and with one arm tied behind my back after making ALL these pillows!!!

Thanks to all for taking time out of you day to read our posts…Lisa

    Interesting to see how many block patterns are created in a very short time by various people who just walked by with no idea there was going to be an opportunity to create. Your space is beautiful & I can see how appealing to both the guys & the gals.

    Thank you for sharing your booth with us. Quilt markets have always been something I wished I could come to enjoy seeing. But not being a shop owner I could never get in. Look forward to seeing your items available to purchase

    I absolutely love the color scheme and the sayings on the pillows are just great. That is one beautiful booth.

    I cannot wait to receive the book, which, I must admit, I preordered pretty much the moment it was offered. The fabrics (both flannel and straight cotton) look stunning, and they can’t arrive soon enough for me! If the book is anything like Star and Stripe Gatherings, I’ll be making pretty much every quilt and wool applique project in it… no kidding. Thanks for creating such beautiful things for people like me to make and work with.

    I love the different shades of grey…so subtle and beautiful. My goal this year is to visit your shop in Butte Des Mort Wisconsin. I would love to see all your creations hanging is your shop/ In the meantime I look forward to scrutinizing your ideas on Social Media and through your magazine. Hugs

    Lisa, I’m in the process of both redecorating my house and helping a friend redecorate hers. Independently, both of us decided that we wanted black-whites-grays to be prominent and had a good laugh over that, since our houses are quite different. Then, we saw Urban Farmhouse Gatherings and decided that you’re our fairy godmother. As soon as the collection is released and I can quilt/sew everything, our houses will be your best advertisement east of the Mississippi 😀
