12 Days of Christmas – Day 2

We’re just over a week away from 2022, and of course with every new year comes new challenges. While not every new challenge in life is welcomed, here at Primitive Gatherings we’re happy to announce a challenge I just know you’re really going to love! One of my favorite themes in quilting is Red and White – a classic combination of colors that quilt-makers have gravitated to for generations – myself included!

I thought a great way to celebrate Red and White quilts would be to have challenge based around them. That being said, I have some great news! The Primitive Gatherings, “2022 Red & White Quilt Challenge” officially starts today!


We have four categories. It doesn’t matter if you have appliqué, pieced or a combo. Anything goes as long as it’s red and white, or shades of those two colors (cream is acceptable for example). Prints, solids, and wool can all be used as well. The possibilities are endless as long as they are done in red & and white!

What does the registration fee include? The registration fee includes a complimentary “Red & White 2022” sticker (shown below), a free red fat quarter, a free white fat quarter, and entry into the 2022 Primitive Christmas Red & White Quilt Show. Note: you are not required to use your free fat quarters in your show entry.

What will you win? Cash and Prizes of course!!! Hopefully I can also get some sponsorship from the big companies I work with! Like Moda, Bernina, Juki, Martingale, Riley Blake, Free Spirit, and Checker to name a few.  

My ultimate wish is for your quilts to fill up The Gathering from November through December, 2022! If you would like to register for this awesome challenge, simply click the link below!

Are you excited yet? If you are joining this challenge and need to add to your fabric or wool supply, we have just the stuff! Jess has put together a few selections with Red and White quilts specifically in mind.

If you need some inspiration take a look at a few of the projects I’ve worked on and collected that I simply love!

I can’t wait to see all the creativity that results from this wonderful challenge! If you would like to submit your finished quilt(s) for display at the Gathering during our 2022 Primitive Christmas celebration in November, you may send it/them in through November 1st, 2022.

Now that you have a new and exciting project to get started on, why not come and stitch with us at The Gathering? I would absolutely love to see what you’re working on – and of course, answer any questions you might have on your project or techniques! I’ll even throw you some extra incentive… Book your stay NOW through January 15th, 2022 and receive an additional $50.00 on your swag bag gift certificate (*offer valid for non-event stays only)!!!

Tell me in the comments how many Red & White quilts you own! How many have you made yourself? Do you have any antiques? Let me know for a chance to win a prize! Watch me LIVE today at 1:00PM on my, “Stitch with Lisa Bongean” YouTube Channel. See you there!
