 Please share our blog hop with your friends and have them follow along! 
For 13 weeks beginning March 10th, we will share with you free patterns from some of our favorite designers to complete a Summer Mystery Quilt. Each week, one designer will post the pattern to make a patriotic themed quilt block using wool applique on cotton fabric. The patterns are free for you to download and print. Check the schedule below—each pattern will be available at the website or blog provided on the date scheduled (not before). Some of the designers have a place on their website or blog where you can sign up to receive their emails. All of the designers will offer kits for sale on their website and there will also be a finishing kit for sale at the end of the hop.

Blockhead link for block 2…

Hey All…Sorry about my post…I’m a little “off” after no real sleep Monday and teaching all day on Tuesday… and then quickly trying to post blockhead blocks today because when I got home last night I totally crashed……where I was teaching there is no wifi…so only have a few minutes to post this morning because I really didn’t want to get out of bed and it was still dark out at 7am!!!!

So here’s the link to where the pattern is…remember if it isn’t our block we don’t post the link, but we can direct you to whose block it is…here is Betsy’s link to her blog where the pattern/directions are posted….BLOCK 2

Betsy is also making mini blocks with her leftovers from the blocks…how awesome!!! I might have to find mine and make them too!…

Block 20 Triangle Gatherings

I had to laugh after reading some of your comments on the blog about the snow storm you are hoping to get so you can stay home and stitch!!!

I am supposed to be in Midland TX by now…my morning flight was cancellede due to snow in Chicago… the only thing out of here is at 6:30 to Chicago-to Houston-at Midnight…then a 7 am flight to Midland where I will land just about the time our workshop is supposed to start…

I also want to point out I am not complaining as this is the first time this has happened to me in all my years traveling/teaching….so if all things go as planned…I will find a comfy spot in the Houston airport for the night…I think by the time I land..get a hotel…in a couple of hours I’d have to get up and figure out how to get to the airport again…so our workshop will start a little later than originally planned. and then a Trunk show/Lecture after.  I’m sure everything will be just fine…

So as long as I have lots of airport time… I thought we release another block…and…

I have 20 1-day tickets to the Chicago International Quilt Show…If you want one please Email me at primitivegatheringsquiltshop@yahoo.com… first 20 get them…Please add your Name and Address so we can send them out to you…and please only take one if you know you will use it!!!
Enjoy Block 20!

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…

Block 18 & 19 Triangle Gatherings

I hope you all are doing well this morning…I had a busy week..how about you?  So to celebrate the weekend I thought I would post two blocks and catch up to my agenda…Did I mention I LOVE seeing your blocks on Facebook!!…I am still trying to find a prize for reaching over 1000 members…hopefully we won’t have 2000 by the time that happens…I hope you are sharing your blocks with your quilting buddies and telling them how much fun it is to do these simple blocks…I know some of us are doing way more than one a week…but that’s our own fault!!!

Click here to print block-18

Click here to print block-19    I don’t know why but I really like this block…

Yesterday was “little man” day again…he was so happy and fun all day long…So we had to make “Yummies”…and again he was my helper…

Thanks for putting up with me sharing my “little man”…for a reward I’m sharing the recipe with you…This recipe is from Rose Ann Cook from Quilters Emporium in Texas…She made these for one of my workshops and they were awesome!!!  Oatmeal-Walnut-Chocolate Cookies

Also…I think the dough will freeze well to bake at another time…so I am saving a dozen to try it!!!

 

All for now…How many of you are doing the MODA Blockhead blocks??? We are all crazy quilters!!! Stitch away!!! Who will post the first ones finished?

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
