I live on a lake in beautiful Butte Des Morts, WI. I have three sons: Lance (forever 29), Luke 33, Jake 32, and two grand-babies, Little Man and O-Bug. I've been married to the love of my life Nick, since 1998 when we started our crazy adventure together! I am a quilter, rugger, and gardener. I also love to cook when I get the chance. Thanks for visiting and supporting Primitive Gathering Quilt Shop where I try to bring you the best Moda fabrics and wool projects anywhere!

  1. Because I live on the Ohio River one of my favorite activities is watching the various sternwheel boats as they make stops and dock at our Levee through the summer and fall. Last week we had the Queen of the Mississippi. We can also watch them lock through upriver a few miles before they make it to our city. Brings reminders of a era long gone. They are always decked out in red, white, and blue flags and banners!

  2. My favorite summer activity is sipping lemonade on the back porch watching the fireflies light up the yard. 🙂
    I’d love the kit for this week’s charm pack. That is very cool! Love the blog!

  3. My favorite summer activity is sewing in the air conditioning and sewing on my wool summer block of the week!

  4. Beautiful table runner. My favorite summer activity is watching the sun set over Lake Erie with a cup of tea at the end of the day.

  5. I love to be at our beach house with the family. Can’t beat a sunny day with the kids running and playing in the sand and swimming.

  6. I love to reach summertime beach reads outside or inside with the fading summer light in the evening. The kind of books you only like to read in the summer.

  7. Love the quilt! With the heat we are having in Maryland Quilting is the best activity for summer. Gardening when cooler.

  8. I love walking around my yard and garden to see what’s blooming and what the deer haven’t eaten–if only they would eat the weeds!!

  9. My favorite summer time activity is getting to spend time with my granddaughters while they’re out of school.

  10. Martha, I love the stars and strip fabric. Love to make a quilt four one of my four grandsons. My favorite activity this summer is watching our twelve week old English cocker puppy, Abby Rose. I try to quilt when she is sleeping beside me on my double rocker.have a great summer.

  11. I love gardening. It still amazes me to plant to a seed and see the emerging plant push its way through the dirt in search of the light, and then flourish to produce beautiful flowers that nourish our souls or gorgeous vegetables that nourish our bodies. It’s so metaphorical. I even find weeding satisfying, well most of the time. It’s a time of contemplation. And then seeing the clean beds of green and color flowing is very satisfying. Even better when followed by a glass of wine on the patio!
    I also love walking the dog in the sun without being bundled up in layers.

  12. Love the table runner! I live on a lake so I like to be on the water or in the water as much as I can in summer!

    1. My sewing room is too warm due to no air-conditioning and lots of afternoon sun, so I use the warm summer days to do handwork. I have a wool applique project from Primitive Gatherings to work on next! Once the days cool off, I’d love to make that runner for one of my daughters. My husband, dog and I love kayaking too, I love summers in NH!

  13. One of my most favorite summer activities is sewing in the AC! But on cool evenings (before the bugs come out) I like to hand sew on the patio!

  14. I’m so grateful you share your talent with us (I’m still looking for my talent). My favorite summer activity is: being able to leave the doors and windows open and hear the birds and other outdoor noises and feel the air and hang my sheets on the line to dry…………….

  15. In summer I like to spend time with my family and special friends, picnics, long walks on the beach in the early mornings, finding a spot in the shade to read a book, or sew! Love the longer days, and lazy times in the garden. Thanks for the chance to win!

  16. 4th of July as our entire family gets together the celebrate the many blessings we have living in our great country and naturally the fun of playing with all the children along with good food and naturally homemade ice cream!

  17. Love Primitive Gatherings. My favorite summer activity is getting out and enjoying nature in any way possible, probably mostly hiking.

  18. I too love to end a summer day, outside in my shaded area doing some handwork. Having a nice hot cup of coffee, or maybe a whiskey and coke. I put some bird seed out for my bird friends. A pair of quail have brought their littles, the last two evenings. I also love to go creek fishing. Perfectly fine if I don’t catch anything, just being there is what makes me happy. I love simple things.

  19. I spend many hours doing handwork while lounging on the pontoon. Need to enjoy the warm weather while we have it, Summer goes by fast in Wisconsin.

  20. I enjoy the more relaxed pace of summer. Even though our everyday activities don’t change much during the summer months, there is a calmer, “slowed down” feeling about the hot, humid days on the Gulf Coast. And maybe an extra glass of wine as my husband cooks on the grill!

  21. My favorite summer activity is hanging out by the pool with my grandchildren. I love summer but they are way too short here in NH.

  22. Swimming is my favorite Summer activity! I am in the pool everyday that it doesn’t rain. I also like to sew small projects in the Summer and leave the larger quilts for cooler weather. I love this table runner and it is on the top of my to do list. We are a military family and I love this red, white and blue line of fabric!

  23. Summertime means enjoying my multiple flower gardens and even pulling weeds is quite satisfying. The garden always changes from year to year even if I don’t plant anything new. The relaxing part of the days are spent stitching on the patio with the beautiful summer light shining from under the shade of the day.

  24. I like traveling with trailer in tow. Sewing machine and hand stitching always come along.

  25. Being outside at the water in my backyard or at a restaurant enjoying my meal on the patio. It rains so much here I just love to soak up the sun when it is here. This has been so much fun I can’t wait to do this one then I will have made all 6. :). Enjoy your day!

  26. I can’t lie… my favorite summertime activity is staying inside in the A/C and binge-watching a series on TV. I always have a quilt project to work on while chillin’!

  27. Very pretty runner! I grew up living on the ocean and my favorite thing to do was walk on the beach in the evening,listening to the surf. So peaceful!

  28. Talking with all the international quilters at the EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh WI is my favorite summer activity.

  29. I love the summer garden and relaxing outside in the summer evenings while watching the lightning bugs gently light up the garden.

  30. Love the table runner and your fabric! Favorite summer activity is early mornings walks with my doggie before it gets too warm outside. He loves them, too, is a prancer/show off! Its really quiet and peaceful that early, hardly any traffic; you really get to enjoy our little world.

  31. My favorite summer activity is spending time with my four year old grandson. We play and talk and read
    and even sew. He is growing and changing daily. What a blessing it is to spend time with him.

  32. My favorite summer activity is enjoying all the homegrown fruit and vegetables at farmer’s market. Love the colors, smell, taste, trying new recipes.

  33. There are so many things to love about summer! Longer days to be outside, gardening, swimming, BBQ’s with family and friends, and spending time with my 2 adorable grandsons!

  34. I love hanging with the grandkids since they are out of school. We have had a detour this summer though since my husband has had some unexpected surgery and has been immobile. So I really look forward to next year hanging with the grandkids again and maybe even teach one of them to make a small quilt!

  35. I have several favorites in the summer. Seeing my flowers bloom & that this year the deer didn’t eat my phlox, high fiving the bumble bees on the cone flowers, watching for the monarch butterfly & the others. Watching the hummingbirds dive bomb each other as if that’s their feeder. Then when I’m out watering they chat at me to say a feeder is empty. Picking the veggies & canning or sharing. Then swimming in our in-ground pool we keep in the neighbor’s back yard. Only a little sewing gets done as it’s time for stash building & project gathering. Little road trips to new shops or far shops.

  36. I love paddle boarding at the cabin. But I also just love no coats, no boots, warm ground under bare feet.

  37. My fave was just spent enjoying my granddaughters ages 6 & 4!!! I’m sad they left for home this am😔

  38. My favorite summer fun is going to the beach with my family. I look forward to it every August!

  39. Sitting on my front porch when it’s cool in the morning & evening with a good book & my stitching. Sipping a cup of tea or iced tea watching the birds, butterflies & bees enjoy my flower garden. I added a fountain this year. I just love it.

  40. Sitting outside and listening to the sounds of summer, the sound of a lawn mower in the distance, singing cicadas, laughing children playing outside. And, watching lightening bugs light up the night sky!

  41. Love that table runner! My favorite thing to do in the summer is head to the beach to escape the triple digit temperatures in the California Desert. If I can’t make it to the beach, I’ll be sitting under the A/C vent!

  42. Love it! I’ve enjoyed this series, seeing designers move outside their box. Thanks for sharing!

  43. My favorite summer activity is hiking in the Olympic National Park near where I live in Washington state. You never know when you will round a curve in the pateh and see wildflowers or a waterfall or a glimpse of the ocean. Love the pattern Vanessa did with your fabric. The swap has been fun. Thank you, Lisa.

  44. I love spending time at the lake with my kids. And on really, really hot days, time in my sewing room catching up on all my UFO’s.

  45. I enjoy travel during the summer but what I love most is just having a slower pace, sleeping a bit longer, having more time to sew, grilling out, etc. Just enjoying life a little more.

  46. Beautiful runner! Lazy day’s sipping cold drinks and eating all the local fresh fruit, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries and peaches.

  47. I love eating! Lol! All the fresh fruits and veggies just beg to be eaten. I top them off with fresh herbs from my garden. Delish! Thanks for the opportunity to win this beautiful table runner kit. I think some fresh salads would look magnificent on it!

  48. Summer is when I am able to get together with friends for a quilting retreat! Don’t always get much done, but the fellowship is great! I have really enjoyed all the great ideas for what you can really do with a charm pack!

  49. Beautiful runner and I always love a red white and blue combination. My favorite summer pastime is spending time with my grandkids. Fewer schedules since they are out of school.

  50. Reading a book outside in the late afternoon early evening after the heat of the day has lessened where I can also enjoy the plethora of wild animals and birds esp hummers coming in for dinner and not realizing that I sit quietly for a moment of pure peace and joy watching them.

  51. I like to be outside unless the humidity is too high, then it’s in the A/C with some wool stitching for me!

  52. My favorite part of summer is being outdoors as much as possible enjoying the sunshine and fresh air. My spend my time gardening, going to the grand-kids activities or going for walks.

  53. July is always busy – I live in Seward, Nebraska’s 4th of July City. And once that is over and the cleanup is done – it’s time to start getting ready for the Nebraska State Quilt Guild’s annual convention – QuiltNebraska. This year is was held in Seward and I was one of the co-chairs – so extra busy this year.
    On to August and time to relax and take some quilting time just for me! What fun it would be to work on this charm project

  54. I love summer! We love to go to the beach and just relax and read a good book. But paddle boarding or kayaking on one of the many lakes in the area is right up there with favorite things about summer. Thank you for showing us this darling quilt using such a fun charm pack.

  62. In the summer, I love that summer vibe–the one you had as a kid. To get that feeling, I jump in the car, barefoot with a swimsuit on, and drive the 1/2 mile down to our beach/boat. Makes me feel like a kid again!

  63. While I love days in my quilting studio… I have been a golfer for over 40 years, so days outside on the golf course is a favorite activity. As I am aging though, quilting is more of a lifetime sport! 🙂

I also love the warm summer nights here in California when I sit out on the patio and read while sipping margaritas.
