This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot!

Hi Everyone!

Another Sunday and another nice day!  I'm ready for this type of weather to stay and old man winter can take the rain and snow they keep predicting!

I am almost done with my Woolie Bag.  I have one or two more rows and the main bag will be done.  I then have the ribbing to do.  I hope to get a bit of that done tonight if I get all my computer work done.


As soon as I am done writing the blogs I need to start sending out invoices for the retreat.  You have about 24 hours to sign up if you haven't.  I still have plenty of room for YOU if you want to come!

Check out our web page www.quiltersdepotpa.com to get the information!

I have 4 more blocks to do on my BOM.  I am so close on so many things........lol  I hope to get that done and I hope to get one of my Batik quilts quilted this week also.  Then I will sew the BOM together.

Hope you all have a GREAT week!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

Happy Sunday!

Sun is out!  Yea!!!!!!!!!

That's two days in row.  Guess that means clouds for the week!

I have been working on my woolie bag.  The back (White w/black top) and the front.  The yarn is a little bit hard to work with but it knits up quickly!  Check out the sun rays in the picture.  I meant to do that.  I really did!  lol


I still have about 4 more 1/2 blocks in month 9 to do on my Hoop Sisters and then 8 in the last month.  2 more and I won't have to take my shoes off to count how many remaining ;)

Hope you have a great week!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

It's Sunday

That means I give you excuses as to why I didn't do what I wanted this last week!  lol

I did get 2 blocks on my BOM done.  I quilted a quick quilt as a store sample.  

I did start my woolie bullie bag!  I will take a picture next week when i hope to have the back of it done.  I already have plans to make at least one more of these bags!

The rest of the week I think I did paperwork!

I need to have some craft time!  lol

Have a great week and stay safe.  Warmer weather seems to be on the way but that doesn't shut off the snow/rain.........lol

What's New @Quilters Depot!

Hi all!

I got lots of fabric to show you today!

My missing bolts of star wars finally came in!  We now have four bolts so you should have enough to make a really cool Star Wars themed quilt!


These next four bolts are (sigh) Christmas!  Let's look on the bright side you can get started on the gifts, decorations and quilts for next season!  Now the dogs are awesome anytime!



These two are my favorite!
 Ok, I love this one it is also a favorite.......lol
 Moda Kansas Troubles.  Three more possible bolts will be coming in.
 If you love Northcott these tiles (layer cakes) are awesome!


I mentioned in yesterday's blog about our new Machine Embroidery Thread!  Iris threads by Enmart!  $4.99 a spool with lots of thread on lots of fabulous colors!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot!

Hi all!

I know it's sunny and warm today but sounds like the groundhog and weather.com were wrong about the way above normal temps we are suppose to have in February.  I know we didn't have a hard winter so far but I'm ready for spring!

I know I'm late today in getting this out.    I am so backed up on what I'm suppose to do today and it doesn't help I left my to do list at the store.  That is like cutting off one of my arms......lol

I didn't get much done this week on my BOM.  Two blocks on Saturday was about it.

What I did do was logged in 100 color of our new machine embroidery thread!  We now are stocking Iris Thread by Enmart!  These are the threads I have been told Brother sells so if you need Disney colors we have them!  I mean if you see Pooh Yellow my mind instantly goes to Winnie the Pooh.  I swear it does.................lol

I hope this week to get some crafty stuff done!

Stay warm and safe!

Success Stories aka WIP challenges @Quilters Depot!

So I know I promised you all WIP challenges as they are finished!

Here are our first two week's worth!  Now I'm not saying all are on WIP lists officially but I have no way to tell which ones are and which ones aren't.  I'm guessing all are.........lol  I also do not if some pictures are the same as others or different people!  Hmmm I might have to initiate a new procedure to tell whose are whose........lol

Sorry about some of the pictures.  I really need to invest in a good camera for the store for Mom.  Mine won't hold a charge anymore and this one doesn't take real good color pictures.

I am splitting this up into two days. Today and Thursday because there are sooooooo many!

Awesome work everyone!









all is fair in love and quilting!  #WIPChallenges

This one is a pink chiffon cotton.  Very very pretty!  The best part is that everything is under $10/yard!
