May to December Romance Block Swap!

May to December
Romantic Block Swap!

Hosted by Beth Rossana 

Sign up by April 30th!  TIME IS RUNNING OUT!  WE NEED AT LEAST TWO MORE PEOPLE TO HAVE THIS WORK!

What is it?  A quilt block exchange!  Each month, May through December, a different participating quilter will select a block they would like made for them.  When it is your month, or two depending on number of quilters who join in, you send the directions and color preferences to the hostess, and she will then send it out to everyone.  On or before the 25th of the month, you will receive blocks made from the other participants.
The other months, you agree to make a block for someone else.  At the end, everyone should have 9 blocks to make a project.
This is a 9 month commitment.  There is a one time cost of $30 to cover supplies if you do not make a block.  Participants acknowledge that everyone does not have the same skill level and keep that in mind when choosing a block.  

Swap blocks will need to be mailed or brought to the store by the 25th of each month.  If you have any questions,  feel free to contact Beth at the store.  Or call anytime to join the fun!!!

This week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

Happy Sunday!

I think I have to be one of the most boring people of all time!

I have absolutely nothing to tell you.  I don't even think I have any cute pet pictures.

I have been knitting.  The first is still the felted slippers.  The second I can't show you because it's a friends birthday gift...............lol

Oh well.  I think it's going to be a nice warm week!  We have the Air on so come on in and fondle the fabrics!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

Hi all!

I really did not do a darn thing this week.  I did do a 100x100 long arm job but other than that i'm not sure where the week went.

I have two goals this spring.  One to walk more.  I talk about this in the news newsletter that you will all see next Friday!  My goal is to walk on the evenings I make it home before it's dark even if I made it to the gym.

My other goal is to develop a Green Thumb.  I bought a click and grow from amazon.  Yes I have an amazon problem.  It's basically a flourescent light and it's suppose to grow things.  I plugged it in this morning.  My pods are basil.  We will see.  If the sprout I will take a picture..........lol

Nothing else is really new.  Have a great week and stop in and buy stuff!

Hurry and get these!  There are only 3 of each and as of Saturday when we closed there are less!  The pictures do not do these justice.  You have to finger through them!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

Ok I admit it I don't think i did ANYTHING this week.

the nights i had off my cat would not let me knit.  So since I have a guilt complex with my furry children I just let him sit on my lap instead of knitting.

We will try again this week!

Stay warm!  Hopefully spring will return before we talk again!
