american gathering

good afternoon! i’ve been trying to find a spare few minutes to pop on and introduce the newest collection to arrive in store.

welcome American Gathering…the newest collection by Primitive Gatherings. this collection is full of pretty shirtings, blue and red.

we opted for mostly shirtings with a splash of red and blue. Wonderful for mixing with other Gatherings, civil war, patriotic prints or use on its own.

the bolts have arrived with precuts arriving later this month. we have whipped up some bundles of the 10 prints we couldn’t live without…

patches and handfuls

these books are a feast for the eyes…they definitely have the inspiration to get anyone out of a quilty slump. the gallery of vintage quilts at the beginning of each book makes these both informative and inspiring. i mean honestly, who doesn’t love looking at quilts made 100+ years ago…seeing their craft, their tiny stitches, their colors and palette and possibly favorite print living on today…still inspiring and possibly even keeping someone cozy warm on cold evenings.

i know, for a fact, that in 100 years…if my quilts are still together as one big collection transported by hovercraft or across the galaxy at light speed or possibly across town in a buggy…that my favorite green will have lived longer and touched more quilters than i could have ever imagined.

it is this thought that resonates…that keeps me going back to these 4 books…obviously i love Ms. Sitar’s palette…soft florals, civil war style projects, and a little applique and EPP. However, the gallery of inspiring antique quilts is something that draws awe and wonder and makes me want to pull out my scraps and get to work creating a masterpiece that will live on (with my favorite green making an appearance).

Depending upon your palette…blue, stars, or scrappy…

these are all available now…just pop over to the website here and grab a little inspiration…

i’m heading over to post some Sarah’s Story yardage and hard-to-find Diamond Textiles charm packs of both 5 inch and 3 inch squares…

Sarah’s Story precuts are available now…here.

now…time to get back to making some space for sarah’s story yardage…so when it arrives on tuesday i can set to work on custom curated bundles…and maybe even a new set of civil war color bundles…

so much to get to…so little time…

happy stitching lovelies! –a&m&g
