Liberty Gatherings…Please read if you have this pattern!!!

I am posting this to alert you there have been errors found in our pattern and we think they all have been discovered now- so this is why I am posting now instead of every time one was discovered…I know this is frustrating and we are so beside ourselves with it…See the correction link below…

My friend Val is teaching this at The Christmas Goose in Las Vegas and has helped up with getting everything straight with the pattern…We also thank the other shop owners who are working on this as well for letting us know… Val has made up a cutting chart for the whole quilt that we have also listed on the corrections if you shop owners want to kit it as a whole quilt instead of a BOM…Thanks again Val!  Some of the numbers that were incorrect are fabric numbers which mean a lot to whoever is kitting your kit, but aren’t necessarily needed for making the blocks. Again we sincerely apologize for this…

Please Print this and add it to your pattern    Corrections

This is a fun and beautiful quilt…I hope you enjoy stitching it!!

Country Version of The Magic of Christmas…

“little man” said my quilt was “cute”!!!! so adorable!!!

I know some of you are still working on your Magic of Christmas blocks…don’t worry…so am I…I did not set the City version yet…BUT…I have the Country version back from Vegas Val, one of my dear friends and magical machine quilters…I know the quilting is not the star on this quilt…but…I still wanted to give you some ideas on how to quilt yours…I also washed this quilt as soon as the binding was on…I wanted the threads to sink in and hide as well as the quilting to pop!   Val does an amazing job on my quilts and I am very pleased this one is done and perfect!!!     See close-ups at end of post…

Now..I am asking for you who have finished this quilt to send me photos…We will be publishing this as a book…and I cannot do all the versions we patterned and we also love the ones who did their own versions as well…all colors and so on…We are starting on the book but It will take awhile so don’t fret..there is no set deadline as I am self publishing and we don’t have to have a strict deadline…but we won’t wait forever…if you would like us to consider your quilt for the book…please contact me at:     lisa.bongean@yahoo.com                   serious inquiries only- like… if you haven’t started your blocks yet don’t email me..lol…we can also discuss…what’s in it for you!!!

And…just an FYI I have finally removed the links for the Magic of Christmas patterns from my blog…I left them up 3 months longer than I told you I was going to…so hopefully you have them all..If someone asks you for the pattern..can you please tell them the book is coming?!!!

If you have any questions that I can answer about “the magic of christmas” or the quilting please email me or reply on this post…

Blockhead Block 1

It’s week no. 1!!! Today Lynne from Kansas Trouble Quilts has posted her Whirligig block!!!  You need to go there for the pattern…I have taken fabrics from all of us and mixed them up…making blocks scrappy!!!  I love using everyone fabrics!!! We don’t get to do this very often…so it’s exciting!!!   I  am using Aurifil 2370 to piece these blocks together….Make sure you starch your fabrics before cutting as these are 6″ blocks!!  They will come out much better if this is done…

Then I am making another set of blocks from my newest fabric line…Liberty Gatherings…I can’t wait till my week to show you how I am going to set my blocks…so look for that…My first block is block 5…If you want to make a beautiful patriotic version you can purchase fabric like the block shown….you can buy a LAYERCAKE if you want to make the just the blocks…but if you want more fabric for setting them…buy a FQ TOWER...and again I will show you on Block 5 how I’m going to set them…I used Auriful 2310 to stitch with the Liberty Gatherings fabrics…

Happy Piecing!!!

my best

Lisa

Block 17 Triangle Gatherings…

I hope you are all doing well this morning…unlike Nick who has pneumonia…so I decided to hang out with him yesterday and not work after returning from Normal/Bloomington IL…home of Illinois State University…I had such a wonderful time at the Hands All Around Guild…wonderful, wonderful ladies who took such good care of me and our class…They made lunch everyday instead of having to order out and waiting on us like we were queens…Their facility was beautiful and once I unpacked it all could stay up and out for the three days I was there…We had 29 and 31 students for the two classes and just delightful ladies…eager to learn the next stitch and elated with how easy they are once they are getting hands on attention…here are a few photos of the two days…again…I love that some of them did their own thing and switched up the colors…they came up with the term…some were murky and some were perky…and all are going to make wonderful tablemats….img_0212 img_0213-1 img_0199 img_0211 img_0200-1

Also while in IL…Linda & Jenny brought me to their famous quilt shop…The Treadle…it was definitely an experience…I was pleased to see five of my fabric lines…and Vicky the owner says they do very well for her…There is definitely 3 times more fabric in her store than mine…and she has quite the unique way of displaying it… but It all works and I found a few treasures!!! So if you are in the area…it is a MUST stop for any and all quilters…img_0206img_0204-2img_0203-1img_0205-2block-17
