This Week W/Jenn @Quilters Depot

Happy Easter!

Can you believe the Penguins!  15 in a row!  Did you make your rally penguin?  Stay tuned to Tuesday for a whole bunch of them that people have made!

This week I did a very very quick and easy baby quilt.  I have reserved time on the Fusion Mid April to get it quilted.  You have to love Panels!  They make making a quilt a one day event other than quilting it!   Check out my Corduroy quilt!  I'm thinking bears on it as I quilt?  I have a yellow backing that matches the Panel all cut and ready to go!  Don't you want to make a Corduroy quilt too?!


The next thing I was working on this week is the continuation of the Friendship Block Quilt.  I had started it during retreat but due to lack of sleep and brain power I did not get far.  almost have the middle section done!  I still have to decide on the two outer border.  I decided to do it on point since I don't think I have ever done one and I needed practice doing it......lol


One of the new things that you will see in Tomorrow's blog is the new Starbella Artic.  Not sure why they released it now as we actually are getting into spring but these will make great Christmas gifts in a few months.  I knitted this baby up in just an hour.  If you are a Starbella scarf maker I only did 3 stitches on this vs the 6 or 8 on the regular Starbella.  My next one I may try 2!


I also have been working on my potato chip scarf.  I really need to put it down and work on my monkey though since that needs to be done in like three weeks!  I do not know why I wait so long sometimes!  lol

Success Stories @Quilters Depot!

Happy Over the Hump Day.  They keep promising if we just make it through this week it will warm up some.

I will believe it when I see and feel it!  I am so ready for Spring.  I was going to say I wanted to hurt the rodent, but did you know the rodent you predicted the snow apparently couldn't take the guilt and passed away (i'm joking.  He did die but i'm joking about the guilt........lol).  So yet again there is a new rodent named Phil.

So here are our success stories this week!  We have a couple penguins and a Penguin inspired quilt!  Wow we have a theme for today's success stories.  I didn't even plan that.......lol




Awesome work everyone!

What's New @Quilters Depot! Day 1

I am mixing things up this week!

We will have two days of What's New!

Today we do the fabrics!  You might not be able to tell.  The black in the second picture are skulls.  They make a perfect fabric if you are doing a Pirates themed quilt.  I mean baseball, but regular pirates too!  lol

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot!

Hi all!

I had some great intentions this week.  Don't I always?

I did not knit and I have come to the conclusion I have to buy myself a ball winder.  I have this horrible problem that I set myself up manually to wrap fancy yarns and bam! I either drop it or the cat attacks!  So Mom is still trying to unknot my latest endeavor............lol

I am going to start a potato chip scarf this week if I ever get things untangled!

I did finish the 2013 BOM Quilt on the Long Arm!  Check out the pictures below!  Some of them you can see the quilting.  Others you can't.  Stop in though, it will be on display somehow.......lol
