Moon Garden Mystery Stitch-A- Long!!!

 

 

It has been awhile since I have launched a wool appliqué stitch-a-long…I am sure excited to be doing so this year…I know we have done a lot of pieced Stitch-A-Longs but now it’s time to try a wool one, if you have never done wool appliqué before…now is the time to try.  We will be having a Facebook group for this SAL as well.  There will be lots of time for instruction and info…

A Moon Garden at night is a great way to enjoy white or light-colored, night-blooming plants, in addition to those that release their intoxicating aromas in the evening. White flowers and light-colored foliage reflect the moonlight…This is the concept that I have tried to follow here at Anchor Point when planning the flowers & trees..everything booms in white or shades of white.

We have wonderful full moons over the lake so why not stitch a Moon Garden as well….lots of light-colored blooms on a dark backgrounds.  The backgrounds I am using come from the Black prints of Little Gatherings I and II.   

Moon Garden is a 12 block basket BOM.  The blocks are nice and big for easy stitching…I believe they will finish somewhere between 16-17″…I want to leave that option open until I have decided on a final setting…Plan on using a FQ for each block to start with…I have been searching for/and hoarding beautiful light wools for these blooms for a while now, and we will have lots of fun stitching and embellishing these.

The patterns for Moon Garden will be Free on my blog for one month…until the next block is released.  We will be giving you the PDF patterns that will need to be printed on 11×17 paper…so you will have to bring them to a copy place to be printed unless you are able to tile the design and print on 4 -8 1/2″ x 11 sheets.  However we will be offering kits for those of you who love our fabric choices and want to support me/Primitive Gatherings for our hard work on this Stitch-A-long. Our block kits WILL INCLUDE the printed pattern full size, therefore no need to have to have it printed elsewhere…The pieces are big…you will need lots of large medium to light brown wools for baskets…and so on…we will have a couple of options for you to purchase…please read carefully as they are listed below. The green highlighted words when clicked on take you to our site so you can order if you wish to do so.  Again…we appreciate supporting our small family business, we can’t say that enough. 

If you are interested in buying the wool block kits with cotton background  from us as a BOM-we will be giving you the 12th block FREE as a Thank you for again supporting us to the fullest…These kits will be limited because of the cotton background limitations…first come, first serve…we will also throw in a surprise gift as well.  All the prices below include shipping- US=domestic, International is everywhere else…(you will pick your choice when clicking the green link above.)

The blocks will be:        $27 which includes shipping-Domestic                 $33- International shipping

 

If you are interested in the wool only for the blocks but NO cotton background we will still get you the 12th block FREE.  

The blocks will be:        $23 with domestic shipping                                      $29 for international shipping.

 

Also…If you wish to pay in full-wool & cotton backgrounds and do not want to deal with 11 payments you will be paying:

$297 for the full kit- surprise gift, and 12th month free…domestic                  $363 for the full kit-surprise gift, and 12th month free-international

Pay in full without cotton fabric background:

$249 for the full kit and 12th month free-domestic                                              $321 for the full kit and 12th month free-international

 

If you are interested in JUST buying the brown basket textures we have a bundle for that as well- you will have to have your patterns printed at the local print shop.

The bundles are $115 w/domestic shipping    $122- international shipping. The bundle shown is not the bundle you will receive, but just a picture so you get an idea.

I will also try and have starter thread kit available soon as well.  But without having all the blocks done you can see my dilemma…but maybe by the end of March I can have all the blocks stitched!!

We have tried to cover a bunch of options for you and soon it will be time to have some fun…We will be starting this is April…We want all of March to be able to make the kits and get them shipped out….but if we run our we run out…so don’t hesitate if you think you will want a kit!!!  We also will not post the pattern each month until all the kits have been shipped and a few days for you to receive them…

We obviously will be doing prizes as well if you get your blocks done each month as well as some other contests thrown in as well to keep it fun and interesting!!!

Take care all…and have a great weekend!! I can’t wait to get in my PJs and start stitching for the night…

Normal…

Things are starting to get back to a comfortable “normal” for me…not rushing to go here, there…do this…have to do that…So here are some of the things that have been going on…

Our WI Sit & Sew group…(we are working on a better name) Had our first of nine get togethers this year…Here are the show & shares….If I know the sources I will give them..if not..I’m sorry in advance.

Judy shared two of her quilts she made for her grandchildren…
Vickie comes from us all the way from Madison…she shared her finished  quilt and fabrics, this quilt/pattern is from years back…so I do not know if it is still available but if you click on Sandy’s name her site will come up…Jean shared two Heart trivets for Valentines Day…Kay shared two projects…a table runner kit was from Primitive Gatherings…Pattern is in a Kim Diehl book.I managed to finish this little binding on one of my class samples…Squash Blossom quilted my Karen Miller from Red Bird Co.   Karen quilts on her domestic sit down machine and is starting to teach professionally.Then I saved the best for last…

Remember the Wooly Block Adventure??? This was our block….remember???  Can still be purchased HEREI wish you could see this in person…We have also picked this as our WINNER for our Primitive Gatherings Shop…Kathy Decker from Fond du Lac WI…


This is the corner you cannot see behind her…Just STUNNING!!! I was hoping she would leave it here but…somehow she remembered it was up on my design wall..darn it!!!

She has used my black MODA FLANNELS , we have just received a new shipment…look for color…blackbird….The MODA flannels are the best look at how that quilting shows up!! They are super soft and by FAR the best out there!!!..thank you Kathy and thank you MODA for giving us such great fabrics!!!

Here are a few more close ups..Kathy has done all the stitching and the quilting…she has taken some classes from my famous quilter..Linda Hrcka..aka  thequiltedpineapple.com  Kathy said she loves Linda’s curved rulers…they helped her get this quilt to look amazing!!!  We think Kathy should win the Grand Prize Wooly Block Adventure…If and I hope there is one given!!!

Hope you enjoyed WI Sit and Sew Day!!

Whooo hoo…Thank you!!!

Thank you all for an awesome Primitive Christmas Event!!! We’ve had lots of ups and downs….site going down…lots of fun…we have an issue with some of our mugs…so sad…but we have lots of orders already shipped out and you will start to get them fast!!! We all get better and better at this event every year due to a lot of hard work on everyones part…..I told everyone I’m start on next year already…no seriously I must…to hard to do it all after coming home from Houston…

One of the best parts of this event is I get to see lots of my customers that I do not get to see because I’m was always gone!!!!  I appreciate them coming to the store during this event to hang out a little bit and make an ornament with us…look at how happy happy we are…creating beautiful things!!! these ornie were a big hit…making more… I am sure you see some of the same ones from last year….like Jade my High School girl from Weyawega High School (i hope I spelled that right) she is growing up so fast… So much fun!  I can’t wait for next year…

Jess will be posting about our progress getting your orders out…but again…thank you all for your orders…we appreciate your business and supporting our shop all year long…you know we are a small family business trying to do all we can for you the best customers ever!!!!!

Are you ready for our Annual Primitive Christmas Event!!!

Well I hope you are all as excited as we are tired!!! lol…no really we are excited too…to see all of the work we have done all staged up and ready for you all…I wish you all could come through our doors and see how beautiful the shop is…I will post some pics tomorrow…but I promised a reveal of the last two items…

Here is our 11″x 33″ish runner..I designed this to go on my “behind the sofa table” So its a little skinny but big enough still for any regular table or coffee table.. We have included a cute alphabet and numbers in case you like to date your project…but wouldn’t this make a great gift…very simple piecing and a little wool appliqué!!!  I think my runner was sent to CA, but the WI store will have the one with the year on it..

 

I took this pic of Jean’s runner while it was being quilted…so it is “in progress”…we cross hatched about every half inch…so those lines will have one more in between as well and crossed the other way…

Then we have the candy cane santa….he is soooooo cute…but his eyes were bugging me so I re-stitched them…much better now…he was “scared straight” Santa…now he’s just jolly old Santa… Now you have seen all four of your projects…I can say I really am happy with how they all turned out…I did a few more Christmas projects and will be teaching these in NC the week after Thanksgiving….you will be able to order these as well…

The shop girls have also been working hard making new projects for this event from many talented designers…like Stacey, from Buttermilk Basin and Bonnie, from  All through the Night…many more but those are a few I seen many samples from…The shop girls also have created all these little quilty gifts for you to buy for your quilty friends…I want one of all of them!!!  Jessica will be blogging about all the things and prices and so on on our shop blog…sometime today yet…so I hope you are signed up for those posts as well…Then another great thing about this years event is our MINI Quilt show….our customers will be voting on their favorite quilt in 3 different categories…Triangles-blue tags Appliqué-yellow tags and then Pieced-red tags….I am not showing ALL the quilts now…I want to give them a whole separate blog post…they are so awesome!!!

Please visit our site soon to order all of our goodies!!!https://www.primitivegatherings.us

the easiest make & take ornie ever…

I know you have loved our “stackable” ornies that we designed the last two years, the TREE and then the SNOWMAN but this year’s I think is the easiest and so super cool….Our stackable  candy cane is 6″ which is made from 1″ pre-cut circles…but then what happens if we made them from 3/4″ or 1/2″ wool circles…such adorable minis which measure 4 1/2″ and 3″…The pattern will be free and included in your packet of FREE patterns and you will be able to order kits that I know you all enjoy so much…each kit will have two candy canes in it…one red, one cream…prices are reasonable and will be in Wednesday’s post where I will reveal the rest of the projects…

Now that  I have revealed the Make & Take ornie that we will be making during our three day event at both stores I can’t help but show you the annual mug and then you will discover our “theme”.  Which all of the projects have featured…all but the pincushion as I do not think it should be seasonal…

This mug is beautiful!!! We absolutely all love how it turned out and we have hopefully ordered enough to handle all the orders…I have ordered mugs based on past sales,  in hopes we do not have to order again and everyone will get theirs well in advance of Christmas…If something has happened to one of your past years mugs we do have a very limited number of them…but you will have to call and order an old mug as we cannot put them on the site and control the number we actually have on hand.  Tomorrow I will reveal the last two free patterns…

NOTE: I am sorry but the CA store will only have the 4 1/2″ candy canes for this event..we will eventually get all the sizes to them, but these kits take a lot of time to make and with shipping it just didn’t happen…but we will do our best to get them there as fast as we can….thank you for understanding…you can order them at the CA store and they will put them aside for you as soon as we get them there…

Time to get my post for the Moda Blockhead ready to post early tomorrow morning….all for now…LB

What’s coming up?

I know some of you know we are all working our butts off for our biggest event of the year…I am taking a break…eating a bowl of chili for dinner for the third day in a row…gets better everyday…still a lot left…hopefully it will take me to Thursday…

This Thursday is our first day of our Primitive Christmas Event!!! I love this event…its tough getting it all ready…designed, stitched patterned, cutting and kitting…patterns checked…always pushing…make another set of samples for CA…mugs came in on time…shipped everything to CA today 2nd day air…watching the Voice stitching one last binding…now…time to start sharing what’s coming…the Free pincushion kit or you can frame it…yes..I think it’s that cute…So how does this all happen…I walk through the warehouse…find a bunch of bolts or end cuts just sitting there…maybe a little while too long…it’s time to “get rid” of this…no…scratch that…it time for it to “be something”….Well…we give lots of these away…between the two shops and our web orders…so I want to design something that every “stitcher” will LOVE…

So…here is your pincushion you will get free along with 3 other patterns with a $30 purchase Thursday the 16th-19th at the shops or through the 20th on our website…I hope you like it…you will be able to purchase extras for $5 each and you can pick your color…We have red, gold and natural….I have to admit I am a little smitten with the “vintage farmhouse” look that’s so popular lately…so that is what the natural one is trying to encompass…the urban farmhouse stitcher!!!We will also be selling black /cream frames for $25 each…If you are framing your pincushion you will have to stitch some scrap extenders on to wrap in the frame…they will have a 5 1/2″ opening.

Thank you all for being the best part of Primitive Gatherings…I will be revealing more tomorrow…can’t wait to show you our “stacked” project this year, sweetest one yet!!!

Is there enough time yet tonight to make a Moda blockhead block and maybe a Triangle Gathering block too…until tomorrow…LBGreat shot of the sunset…love the reflection…Anchor Point 11/12/17.
