I am pretty sure I have at least four of your books. I think the first was Primitive… Summer. It had a Mason jar of daisies in it and I got it before I knew anything at all about wool. And of course the last book – Wool Needle and Thread. Read it cover to cover when it arrived
Do you really want me to go count them all? Let’s just say I have several. Patterns also.
Love, love your books. And this one that you will be featured in looks like a winner.
Can’t wait to see it. Keep on doing what you do Lisa, we are so thankful for the books, to give us inspiration and beautiful quilts for us to make. .
I do have 4 books of yours and confirmed 1 magazine on which you are on the cover. Plus some odd ones in which you have articles. At the time of publication of those magazines I did not hear much of you. I might have bought several primitive magazines or better homes magazines with certain contributors in mind including you. If I am not wrong Fons and Porter too i think not sure though.when reading old magazines for fun its a huge surprise to find you have contributed and stood out for your designs alone.
Thanks for this giveaway.
I believe I own two of your books (I’m on vacation right now so can’t go double-check) and I bought one of your books and gave it to a friend. Looking forward to that latest fabric line!
I own ALL of your books… even the ones published under Backyard Gatherings!
I bought one of your books and a magazine with one of your patterns included.
Would love to have more especially your farmhouse patterns.
Looking forward to the book release. Your quilts are always beautiful and this one is extraordinary. Although I admit to having a few layer cakes in my stash, I would love to have your new line ahead of time. Thank you for all you do.
I have all your books so far. Love them all
Nice give away Lisa, I have 2 of your books.
I would love to win this book! I also love your Indigo Gatherings line – can’t wait to get some for my stash:)
I have 2 books that you contributed projects to and I would love to add this one to my collection! I love your new fabric line!
I am enjoying visiting all the different designers blogs, thanks for the links. I have one of your books. Great color photo’s, great directions and beautiful fabrics.
I have 4 books of yours and I really love your latest plus a couple you contributed to. I love them all but use the Valdani inventory frequently. Your designs are still fresh and I wish you would write a book about building a house and decorating…the blogs about building the house are real keepers. Thanks for the giveaway!
I only have one book that you contributed to. I have never tried the cake mixes or bought a layer cake!
I have one of your books books, but I have your patterns, BOM and have made many of your kits, I Love the quilt on the bed
I’m not sure how many of your books I have, maybe 3, I like books also. In our moves I’ve given away some to friends and others I donate to the local library. There is just something comforting about seeing books all lined up on a book shelve.
I have 2 of your books, but lots of your patterns, fabrics and products. Love it all!! Thanks for the chance on the giveaway.
I don’t have any books that are exclusively yours but I have several that you’ve contributed to. But I’ve made several quilts from your quiltalongs on line.
I have 3 of your books and some that you contributed to. I love paging through them for ideas.
I have just one book but love your fabric and patterns.
Hi Lisa, I agree, books are great! I have 2 of your books, I’ve always loved your work.
I have 4 of your awesome books !!!
I don’t think I own any of your books yet, but I would love to win this one!
I think the only book of your that I own is Wool, Needle and Thread. However, I own and have made many of your oatterns😊and I love them all!
I only have 1 of our books. But, I do have a few individual patterns. I love them! You’re the best!
I am your biggest fan lol. I have 6 of your books .
I have 3 of your books and 2 others in which you have contributed. There are several on my wish list too. I can’t wait for those blue fabrics LOVE!!! I love blue and I love books!
I have 1 book and a couple kits of your designs, have never tried the cake mixes.
Right now my books are scattered as we are reorganizing 2 rooms but I know I have books & magazines in which you are a contributor. Does making my own book count? I copy those instructions you give on words, how tos & patterns & they go in a Lisa Bongean binder. So my own book. Thanks for the great prizes you are giving away.
I have two books and oh soooo many patterns that I have done. Also participated in your Primitive Triangle online pattern and finished all of them. I made 3 quilts out of the triangles and the last 25 set I am about ready to make the last quilt. LOVE your patterns and all of your work.
I don’t have any of your books as yet but Wool Needle & Thread is on my wishlist (am dropping hints for Christmas – fingers crossed!). Would love a chance to play with the fabric and cake mix papers – more finger crossing!
I have 2 of your books but lots of your patterns. Love the wool appliqué and your new quilt designs with some many tiny pieces — need to try out those triangle papers.
I don’t currently have any of your books but do have a number of magazines that you are in. I am seriously looking at Wool Needle and Thread is on my list. I absolutely love your creativity. Thanks for sharing.
I have most of your books but don’t have any of the Moda precuts designer books. I LOVE quilt books and it Looks like this one has a lot of amazing projects. Your quilt is beautiful.
Well it is rather embarrassing but I don’t think I have any! I am just getting into several hobbies. This empty nest needs some activity. I have collected antique quilts and my grandmother was a quilter. I just recently had her treadle sewing machine totally refurbished and ready to sew, “play?” with. I would like to interest my granddaughter in it so maybe this is where I start?
Lisa, I believe I own every book you wrote! Not all you have contributed a quilt in though….. my quilt book library is two full bookcases and more….
I do not have any of your books. Wish I did.
I have most of your books but don’t have any of the Moda precuts designers collections. Looks like this one has a lot of great projects. I love quilt books and your quilt in this one is beautiful.
I have at least 5 of your books and love every one of them. Thank you for your amazing designs and for the chance to win!!
Totally love Primitive Gatherings books! I have many of them and have made projects don all of them! Lisa is such a generous lady that several of the books were given out at various workshops, classes and cruises I have taken with her. Lisa’s wool and quilt patterns are like no other!
I have several of your books, and also several of the Moda books you have contributed to. This new one looks like a must-have, too!
Love the new fabric and your blog. I own only 1 book, but also have individual patterns and kits.
I don’t have any of your books yet. I only have 2 total quilt books so far. Hoping to add more soon.
While I only have one of your books, I love it dearly. It stays at the top of the pile by my chair because I have made one of the quilts and have plans for several of the others which will take me years to collect fabric and make. I also have a friend who is a book hound and has been “turned on” to Lisa B’s books. She has several of your books which I have access to for inspiration or use if needed. When she gets a new one, we love to sit and drool over the pages. I know that I would be as over the moon excited if I had the chance to to show off and play with the cake mix fabric and papers.
I am not sure how many of your books I own. I can think of 4 off the top of my head. I am not normally a blue person, but I love the Indigo Gathering and will be buying for sure. Love it’s richness. I want to pick out a quilt to use these blues in. I have a couple of ideas. However will be at your Christmas open house in Menasha on the 21st. Can’t wait.
Picked up your new book in Houston. And you were kind enough to autograph it for me. Photos are outstanding.
I think that I own two of your books. I really like your designs and how you think. Thank you for sharing your creativity with us! Shirley
I own 2 of your books now and have your new book, needle and thread on my christmas wish list
I love your new indigo line!! I have tons of the martingale compilation books that feature your work. All beautiful!
If I’m being honest, I have one if you count your journal which was gifted to me by my twin sister.
I have 5 books including your Wool and Needle Book. They are always close by my computer desk where i can pick them up at a moments notice for inspiration! I also belong to PG Woolbox and have many of your patterns! I can never get enough Primitive!!!
Thanks for a chance to win this awesome prize!!!
4! What’s funny I bought Spring (?) Gatherings years ago at a Paducah show. In 2015 I rediscovered you by hearing about & joining the SBW. Which I love doing!
Wow, how generous you and Moda are…I have two books at the moment, but lots of fabric and wonderful Wool Boxes that I have enjoyed…looking forward to the Christmas Limited Box! melinda
Being that I am not at home to count my books, i’m guessing at around 7 books, maybe a couple I may be missing. My favorite are your older books!! I still enjoy looking at them!!
I have several quilting books and I know at least three of them are yours or you have been a contributor. Thanks for such a generous giveaway.
I only have one book that you have contributed to but I have lots of your wool patterns and kits. Would love to have this book – the quilts are great!
I love all my Lisa books! I am not home to count, but since I’ve found you many moons ago I have all the books I could find and I’ve made many quilts. So inspiring! Thank you for making me look so creative!
I have 2 of your books. Summer Gatherings which I lent to a friend and took a year to get back. She looked for that book for a very long time but since it’s out of print no luck. then I just happened upon one just last month and bought it for her. Happy girl!!! Thanks for the generous giveaway!!! Love every thing you do Lisa. That quilt is spectacular!
I have all your books but the urban one but I have several of the Moda books. Truly I’m just missing a couple. Like you I like collecting books. I hope to win this !!
I have been a follower of yours for years. So to tell you the truth I have too many to count, and I love them all. Thanks for the opportunity to win.
I have one book in which you were a contributor.. Since finding your blog, I have been very smitten with your design aesthetic. Would love to have another book to add to the collection and I really like your quilt. Ocean waves has been on my wish list for a while. I love half square triangles and would love to be a winner for your giveaway.
I own two of your books. My library is not very big, but it is mighty!! I’ve just recently become obsessed with wool work! Thank you for sharing your gift!
I own 3 books. I liked Stars and Stripes and accidentally bought it twice
Well I believe I have 6 (including this one I bought the minute it came out) I could have more this was just off the top of my head. Love your fabrics I made 2 Christmas gift quilts out of your farmhouse flannel and everyone raves about the softness of it including my quilter lol can’t wait to give them to our boys. 🙂
Happy to say I have 11 books featuring Miss Lisa

I do not have any books but I do have several patterns.
I believe I have almost all of your books including when your company was called Backyard Quilts. Always get great inspiration from them and usually can’t wait to make one out of the books each time they come out.
P.S. Your new book Wool, Needle & Thread is the BEST book ever for embroidery technique.
I do not have any of your books😢 but boy do I want them! Your designs are beautiful! Thank you for opportunity!

First Thankyou for sponsoring this amazing giveaway! I don’t own any of your books unfortunately, but then I don’t have any other designers books either. I am a relative newbie in quilting. I would love to win this book and see where it might take me!
Hi Lisa, I have 2 books and have made 2 of the Summer BOM quilts. Thanks for the opportunity to win!
Hope you get some rest.
I don’t believe I have any of your books yet but I love everything that you make and I read all of your blog posts.
Good morning Lisa. I believe I don’t own any of your books I’m ashamed to say. I do have a few of your patterns. Your work and designs are exquisite. Rest up and recharge, this will all still be here.
I think I have 3 or your books
Love your fabrics and style…I know I’ve made some of your quilts but I’m not sure where I got the pattern…probably a magazine, I am currently babysitting my grandson, at his house! Lovely giveaway, thank you so much
I have many of your books and many more that you have contributed to. I love your designs. Thank you for all you do for us quilters!!!
Oh, I am so excited to have found your blog!! I recently started quilting so I do not have any of your books. My girlfriend made one of your blocks and it was so adorable! I can’t wait to try some of your patterns and fabric. I look forward to reading some more of your blog.
I have one of your books and many of your patterns. I love your fabric and patterns!
I have 3 books of yours. Thanks for the chance to win.
I have most of your books. I really enjoyed the recipes in your earlier books. I’m with you, there are never too many books!
oh MERCY….. dare I admit that I don’t have any books written by Lisa or where she is a contributor? Sounds like penalty time~~~~ however…. even better would be prize time so this problem is remedied!
I know I have at least 2 of yours and a some that you are a contributor – and several of your patterns (and kits!).
I have 5 books….but soon to be 6 as I plan to buy Urban Farmhouse? And maybe 7 if I win this one!!!’ Jmh

I don’t have too many books, I think two are yours. The last book I bought was Wool, Needle, and Thread, which I love!
I love the Quilter’s Journal, I use it faithfully. However, I’m not sure if I have other books. My next purchase is going to be “Wool, Needle, and Thread – The Go-To Guide for Wool Stitchery”. Thank you!
I have two of your books and they are my favorite. There are more that I have in my wish list that I will get it soon! Everything you do makes me happy. I think we have the same quilting soul 😊

I don’t have any of your books. I do have many of your fabrics and a couple of patterns though! Wool, Needle and Thread is on my Christmas wish list, it looks awesome. Thanks for the chance at your giveaway.
I love your designs and have made several of your designs, however I don’t have a single book yet. Have mentioned on my wishlists so maybe soon?
I think I have almost all of your books. I just picked up Wool, Needle and Thread, I haven’t started reading it yet but will soon. Maybe I will take it to my deer stand for some quality reading time. Thanks for the giveaway, I love the new indigo line.
Lisa, I think I own just about everything you’ve ever written! My absolute favorite is the wool stitchery tutorial. I now have the confidence to finally begin your last two SBOW’s and the Moon Garden BOM stored in my studio waiting for this book to be released!
I have two of your wonderful books
I have two books of yours but would love to read this one also. I am also a book lover and don’t go anywhere with out a book or two on me in case I need something to read while I wait for something.
I don’t have any of your books. I wish I did because I love your designs.
I have no idea! I know of at least one pattern that comes to mind. Been going through all my magazines and books as I have WAY TOO MANY! Have so enjoyed reading your posts and drooling over your fabric! Blessings to you and yours!
I am sorry to say that I don’t own any of your books. But I love your quilt in this book. It is very beautiful. Thank you for the chance .
I think I have all of your books even from before you were famous!
Well not sure!! Have all but Mix it Up as far as the All Stars, then Christmas Gatherings, Little Gatherings & Star & Stripe Gatherings’s- hope I got all the titles right, riding home after a 12hr shift!🙄 Imay have a few others too!! Love them ALL!!
I may not have any of your books BUT I love you, your fabric (which I have a lot of), your blocks for us to make, your style, your wool patterns (which I have) and meeting you in Houston about 3 years ago. I would love to win your fabric.
I have one of your books ( but so many of your patterns and kits!) but have several other books that feature your designs like the Moda All Stars All in a Row and the On a Roll books and the Red and White Quilts book! Love them all!
Love books too much to hubby’s chagrin😂
I have most of your books. Think I might be missing 2 of your earliest ones. (Before I found out about you)! Will be on lookout for this new one…books make me dream about what ifs…
Book looks great! Would love to add it to the 3 books of yours that I already have.
I believe I have 4 books and quite a few patterns.
I don’t have one of your books, but I admire your beautiful quilts. Actually, I don’t have many quilting books at all. Your quilt is gorgeous!
I have several of your books and enjoy looking at them over & over. I love your work! Thanks to you for giving us a change to win these delicious gifts.
Hmmmm, at work right now, but I think I own two of your books. (Probably flannels!) Blue is my fave, so very excited for your new line!
I have 3 of your books for sure; (well,,,, 4 if you count 2 copies of one of the Christmas books!), and many, many patterns. This one looks like a really good one to add to the collection!
I have at least 2 of your books. So much inspiration on every page. Thanks for sharing your gift!
Honestly I can’t be sure, because like you, I’m a book junkie! Off the top of my head I’m certain of at least 4 of your books, and one more that you’ve been a contributor to. Can I just say how excited I am for the Indigo gathering line?! Can’t wait!
I have your Christmas Gatherings book which I love for many reasons. The wool patterns make great wall hangings and ornaments. The book is spiral-bound and lays flat – fabulous! I also have your journal which inspires me as I make notes, lists and jot down ideas. I hope to win one of the books in which you are a contributor. Keep those books coming!
I am in the process of making your “Among Friends” pattern which I have loved for years but was too afraid to tackle it until I saw the finished product at a quilt retreat that I attended in Shipshewana, Indiana. I fell in love!!!! I also just purchased your new book, Wool, Needle and Thread because I really want to get into doing wool applique! I have dabbled in it but need some more direction. I have always loved your fabric lines and have lots in my stash but there is always room for more!!!
Do I really have to publicly confess my Lisa addiction? My collection of Primitive Gatherings books is not nearly as hefty as my pattern collection. I love books and yours are so beautify written and illustrated.
Sorry to say I don’t have any of your books yet….but made a beautiful quilt out of some of your fabric!!
Thanks for the chance to win an amazing prize!
I know I have a number of your book, but I am not sure how many. I can’t look right now, but I have made several of your patterns and have used your fabrics many times. I have a couple of books on my list to buy! I enjoy all….
I don’t own many books so I don’t have one of your books…yet! But I have bought a few of your kits. Everything you make is beautiful! I wish I could sew faster and make them all!
The one book that I know I have of yours is the thread collection book with helpful tips and tidbits. It is my go to to keep me up to date on the Valdani threads that I have and/or need. It has been such a helpful book also for creating stitches that I may have forgotten how to make. Thank you for keeping me ‘somewhat’ organized!
Sadly, I must admit I don’t have any of your books. But, I LOVE this new fabric line of yours and would love to have this book be my first! I, also, LOVE and have used Cake Mixes!
I am thinking at least 8. Two of which are out of print. As for patterns I have oodles and oodles. I will never live long enough to do something from all books I have.
Lisa, I own 4 of your books including your most recent (Primitive Christmas, Summer Gatherings, Autumn Gatherings and Wool, Needle & Thread). Would like to own a few more. Also I own several collaborative books where you have a project (That Patchwork Place/Moda). Plus as a reader of your blog, I have many items you have given away freely and tons of inspiration from your posts (excellent pictures). And I have quite a bit of your fabric in my stash. Thanks so much!
At this point I have none of your books, but you can bet they’re on my gift list for this year! The new line of greys, as well as your traditional blues and tiny prints are wonderful! Thanks!
I have at least five of your books. I love the new wool book (already finished the posey pincushion!) and the one that taught me how to starch the fabric to make mini piecing easier!! Have a terrific day!
I think I have all of your books. Had too much fun in your booth at Houston.
I own you 9 Patch gatherings book. I really enjoy your blog and appreciate your contributions to the quilting community! Thx
I don’t think I have any, but would love to have one!
I truly don’t know how many of your books I have. I know I have several and continue to want more. I love your books, patterns and fabrics in cotton and wool. Love, love, love your designs.
One book is what I have. Love it and anything wool. Will be adding this one on my Christmas list.
I actually own several. I’ve also been honored and humbled to be in one. 🙂
I have two of your books.
I have 8 books and endless patterns. I love mixing quilt fabrics with wool and that’s where my addiction to everything Primitive Gatherings started. Glad to hear you are resting after Houston. Happy Thanksgiving.
I have 7 books. I really need to add this one to my list. You are so right, can’t have to many books.
