Summer Blocks of the Week…finally!!!

I’m just posting here just in case some of you are not signed up for the shop’s blog…Jessica did a fine job today posting about all THREE of our Summer Blocks of the Week…Please click HERE to read ALL the details that I may not mention in this post…

We all have been working very hard to get all the blocks done..and cutting sheets tested and all the details sorted to bring this to you…So I just want to briefly say a few things about each one…

Among Friends is a quilt I designed after Ardie, who teaches at the CA store…showed me her quilting basket that was made up into 3″ friendship stars…I thought…these are perfect for a “pieced” SBOW…so I came up with an interesting layout and started planning how we could make lots of yummy scrappy stars!  Here is what you will be getting…12 packages of 44 blocks…36 for the body of the quilt and 8 saved for the border…lisa bongeanIMG_6443I’m super excited to piece these weekly and collect little friendship stars each week! I’ll help you stay caught up!!!

Next is this adorable star quilt…I fell in”love” with this design…I usually don’t buy/collect 30’s quilts…but sometimes you have to make exceptions…img_2952LisaBongean/collectionThis amazing quilt HAS to be re-created…Jess named it Clara’s Stars after her grandmother…as she is in-charge of this one…primitivegatherings2016We are kitting it with civil war repos instead of the 30’s…with a choice of cream or tan backgrounds…I am going to try at least to make a runner…since I am in charge of the other two SBOW…I’m not THAT crazy to do all three…remember…we HAVE no choice we have to keep up and I know my limits!

Now the last SBOW…My Crazy Life..(how fitting)

I L-O-V-E how this one is going to turn out…It’s the finishing thats going to MAKE the quilt for me and I will be sharing in about a month after we start..but really if you just put these blocks together that would be fine to…but you know…it will be A-mazing for what I have planned for it …so keep that in mind…

This quilt is FUN…It is easy…the strips will be cut to size for you…as it is very forgiving and you will trim the blocks down, which will set them back straight again… You are looking at flannel backgrounds and wool appliqués…These blocks are so fun…after I finished these 8, they were so colorful and cheery I decided to get the rest of them ALL fused down..in about a day in a half…so this in not intense (like 2015’s was…lol) so if you are all about fun and simple this one is for you…but remember the setting it going to elevate it to awesome!!!lisa bongean 2016lisa bongean 2016

I am supposed to be stitching on a BOM I need to get done for Spring Market…but I got severely sidetracked with this…but now they are ready to stitch…I will bring them along to Market and maybe they will all be done by the time I return…

You will be doing 4 blocks in each package… very do-able!

Now last but NOT least…the FREEBIE!!! I’m not going to say anything but this…might be the best freebie yet…and you know we’ve had some great ones!!!lisa.bongean2016

If you cannot commit to the SBOW you can still get the FREEBIE each week with a $25 purchase from the shop…walk in or internet…but if you are in any of the SBOWs you automatically get them shipped with your weekly package of happy mail!!!

Again…lots of info here but if you want ALL the details you need to visit HERE . It will give you links to the shop’s website where you can sign up for these wonderful projects to keep us inspired and stitching all summer long…We will also have 2 Facebook groups…with exclusive memberships to help, share, encourage, give stuff away and just meet some wonderful people!!! If you were in the group last year comment and encourage those who “don’t do Facebook” to try it…

If you have any questions after reading Jess’s blog post with all the info please email or call the shop…but I think she covered it all…ps…if you already signed up for Among Friends…just make a note on your order if you are signing up for another…or email if you forget.

I have lots to post about coming up…so I will be bothering you more in the near future…all for now….what do you think about Presley choosing to relax on this super cool hexie floor??? A quilter must live here…and a doggie that loves hexies too!

Summer Crazy Table Mat…

Look what I have finished!!! Summer Crazy Table Mat!! It turned out so cool…..I just love it…The kits are  all ready and we are ready to ship…It will also be with us in Charlotte NC next week for the new AQS show….and I actually have Fall all done too…but we are working on the kits and pattern and it will not be ready until mid August…but keep that in mind too…I am surprised at how fast I can get these done…Those crazy stitches are so fun…and I’m sad when I am done…I am taking along the Everyday Crazy Table Mat with me to stitch this weekend when I am visiting in CA and then flying to NC from there on Sunday to set up for the new AQS show in NC…hopefully I will come home with this mat done as well! Winter Crazy Table mat is already on the site…then there is Summer, Fall and Everyday…Maybe I will do Spring also now that I think about it…but we really don’t have spring in WI anymore…we go right from snowstorm to 80 degrees all in a week’s time…The mat is Kit and Pattern for $85…Pattern only is $15…I have taught these mats a lot lately and you get lots of wool for your backgrounds and a great updated pattern with all the crazy stitches shown…I have listed all the threads on the description on the website if you need to check over to see if you need to add some to your ever growing thread collection!!! Take care…time to put the finishing touches on my packing…Here is the link to order kits and patterns if you wish…Summer Crazy Table mat

To my students, who kept asking for the kit that I was working on!!! It’s done!!! Now you can order it!…lol I had to explain that I am stitching the project…it can’t already be in a kit and pattern…I am creating it now…then I have to put all those sizes, numbers and double and triple check everything….…how are you doing on your mat???? Send me some pictures and comments about your class…tell everyone how easy it is, so they think I am not trying to pull one over on them!
