Representing the great state of Wisconsin, the Green Bay Packers, and cheese lovers everywhere, is

Lisa Bongean (Primitive Gatherings) wearing her row NOVEMBER. While her quilt does appear in the seasonal rows section, it's actually a television series that inspired her row.can you guess which one? Orange is the new black of course! Needle turn appliqued and embellished with a few hand-embroidery stitches Lisa suggests her row could be made even quicker with wool or fusible appliqué.
Lisa, looking regal in red.
Check out Lisa's row here.

Lisa's picture is titled;

New Species...Wisconsin Swiss

Often mistaken for her royal highness and the heiress to the non-existent Fig Newton fortune
Please welcome Joanna Figueroa (Fig Tree Designs) wearing her row WE ARE FAMILY.  A business owner, designer, wife and mother, she knows a little something about making strong individuals blend together –so for her row, pieced star blocks stand by themselvesbut when joined together and linked with a skinny sashing, form a strong chain of stars—much like a strong family. If you're looking to hang out with Joanna—know that her fave snack foods when she's quilting are chocolate, doritos, and diet coke! 

Joanna, so beautiful and looking like royalty
 in a gown entirely made of bubble wrap...who knew.
Check out Joanna's row here.
