Lisa Bongean.  Primitive Gatherings.  She loves mini quilts.

This is the collection of mini quilts that graces one of the walls in Lisa's studio.  Seriously.  Could you sit in a room with this and get anything done?  Major. Distraction.  (Chris Pine could walk through the room and who would notice?) (Okay, maybe that 's a stretch... but you get the point.)

Since Lisa loves Mini quilts, and Lisa is Miss August in the 12 Contests contest... it's all about minis.

Make a mini using at least 50% Primitive Gatherings for Moda fabrics and you're in.

The design can be your own original creation or one from a purchased pattern.  Hand- or machine-pieced, appliquéd with cotton-wool-whatever, embellished, almost anything goes.

For all the details - Lisa Bongean's 12 Contests Mini Contest.

Deadline for entries is September 30th.

One more quick thing to share - have you seen Lisa's Wool & Needle V Flannels yet?

They're showing to shops now and will be available in December.  They're beautiful for pieced quilts and as a foundation for wool appliqué.  They also make a gorgeous backing for any quilt as they are incredibly soft - even softer after washing.

If you don't want to wait until December, there are other Wool & Needle Flannel collections that might still be available - Wool & Needle IV and Wool & Needle III.  I write "might" because these never seem to last very long.  (They're that lovely to sew with, and they really are that soft.)

That's it for today - be sure to get all the details about Lisa's Mini Contest and start planning your mini.  Then get busy making it!

Did I mention there will be prizes?

I hope a big yardstick like the one above Lisa's minis is on the list.

Happy Tuesday!
