Designer Tidbits: Primitive Gatherings + Giveaway


The Fat Quarter Shop is excited to welcome Lisa Bongean of Primitive Gatherings to the Jolly Jabber. Lisa’s latest fabric collection is Seasonal Little Gatherings for Moda Fabrics.




Q: What or who would you dedicate this collection to? Do you have an inspiration board?
A: My family for making Christmas and Fall Holidays so much fun!!! My inspiration board is Pinterest...can't beat it!

Q: What is your favorite project using this collection?
A: I would have to say...Home for the Holidays Quilt.




Q: If time travel became possible, what year would you want to be in?
A: I would want to be in the 1880's...fabrics were awesome... hopefully I would have some money to buy larger amounts for a border here and there...if not I could get by on just making scrappy quilts...

Q: If you had to change your first name what would you change it to?
A: When I was a kid I always wanted to be a Kelly… like Farrah Fawcett on Charlie’s Angels.




Q: What was your favorite childhood TV show?
A: I really didn't watch a lot of TV...but the one I watched the most was Gilligan’s Island...it was on right at suppertime and I remember eating supper in front of the tube when my Dad was not home yet.

Q: Who is the most famous person you have ever met?
A: I don't think I have met anyone officially that was famous...unless you count meeting Debbie Mumm in the bathroom at Quilt Market.

Q: What is your favorite App to play on your phone?
A: I do not "play" much...does looking at my online banking count? Oh, and I do "play" on Pinterest!

Q: If you could marry a technology, what would it be?
A: Video...I love movies...

And now, Lisa has so graciously donated some Seasonal Little Gatherings Mini Charm Packs! (If you are new to these, they are extra special 2.5" squares.)




So three lucky winners will receive 4 Mini Charm Packs. All you have to do is comment on the Rafflecopter below and tell me which Charm Pack pattern you would scale down to make a mini quilt?
