This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

Am I the worse Blogger in the world?  Probably.................lol

I have not been doing much sewing or knitting.  Paperwork and computer work keeps me busy!

I don't think i even have any cute pictures of Onyx.  Oh wait I do!

I brought in some furniture and Onyx had to check it all out!



 And this is the black bear playing with his new kermit toy!  I just hope his head doesn't get bitten off or a frog leg...........lol


On Saturday, I started a customer's quilt with the Pro-Stitcher!  Let's see how many days I need to get this done!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

Ummmm, Yes I ignored you all last week.

By the time I remembered I hadn't done any blogs I didn't want to boot the computer back up!

I did finish month 4 of the BOM I am doing.

Did I tell you I finished two baby quilts.  Ok 1.75 are finished.  I still have to sew the binding on the second and I just havne't been in the mood.  However, my sewing machine is in sewing mode so hopefully this week!

Here's a picture of Onyx to make up for me being a bad blogger!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

Hi all!

I have absolutely nothing that I did this week.  I cleaned my apartment.  Does that count?

I didn't even take a cute picture of Onyx to share with you.

I did schedule a Handi Quilter Event for December 1st and 2nd for those of you who are interested.  Remember everything that you learn in these classes you can use on your domestic machines so do not hesitate to come!  More details will be coming in the next newsletter!

I think that's all!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot!

Another boring week in the life of Jenn @Quilters Depot

I long armed two quilts.  One was a rush job and I conned mom into doing the binding and she's not happy with me since it's black binding.  The second was for one of the sales associates.

Next week is a small quilt.  Then two of mine and then one other customer so that's about 4 weeks of quilts to be done.

I haven't touched the embroidery machine which is a bad thing.  I'm never going to get my BOM done!

I did spend too much time on Prime Day!  Here's Onyx investigating his new food stash!

Come meet Schloe Kerness and do her "In a Dash Class"

In a Dash Class with Shloe Kerness
      Saturday, July 22nd
9:30-2:30
$40 + cost of template
Learn how to make the quickest block using the
“In a Dash” templates created by Shloe Kerness.
All 42 blocks needed to make a generous lap sized quilt top
can be made in class and they will be perfectly square… really!

Materials
1 Layer Cake (42 squares 10”x10”)
If you cut your own squares, spray starch your fabric before cutting. You can cut 4 squares from each third yard cut of fabric. You decide if you want lots of different colors of fabric or only 2 colors.
If you are using a Layer Cake, do not spray starch the fabric as it will shrink just enough that
the measurements and cutting directions won’t work!
28mm Rotary Cutter
Regular ruler at least 12” for cutting fabric
Cutting Mat
Sewing Machine with ¼” foot (preferable)
In a Dash Templates available in shop or in class

Success Story @Quilters Depot!

I only have one for you this week.

Both projects are PeggyW's!

The first is a quilt as you go quilt from PeggyG's class.  I of course love the front but look at that awesome back!



Check out Peggy's other project.  I really wish the NHL wasn't so freaking greedy and would let some real quilt stores sell their fabrics.

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

Happy Mother's Day out there to all you mothers!  This includes those who are Pet Mama's too.

I won't be seeing my eldest furry children today because instead of me going to visit Mom I've invited her and Dad to my apartment for dinner.  So you all should pray for my family and their stomachs today.........hahahahaha

Instead I have decided that Onyx will have to wear his bowtie to dress himself up for the occasion!

What did I do this week?  Hmmmmm  I quilted my Elegant Elements Quilt and Beth is almost finished doing the binding for me.  I have to decide if it's going to become the newest decoration in my apartment or if it's going to hang in the store or be given away.

Other than that Onyx has not let me knit.  I am running out of time for a few friends birthday gifts.  Maybe I will get some done.

Finally, Let's Go Pens!

Hi all!

What a rainy weekend.  Nothing much new to tell you.  I think I finished one embroidery block on my Charmed Adventure BOM.

I did some knitting but i'm not far enough along on any of the projects to show.

I mentioned last weekend that I was going to do some planting of flowers.

Maybe this will brighten your Sunday!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

Afternoon!

So I spent most of my week at the Three Rivers Quilt Show out at the Meadows Casino this week!
Below is a picture of our booth.  Our concentration was that we were demo'ing the Handi Quilters!  I think a lot of ladies had a lot of fun driving the machines


This week will be spent putting stuff back together in my office and working on the next newsletter.  Get some of it done in spurts and then it all doesn't have to be done on one day!

Today brings a nice walk in the summer wether and then i'm going to do some gardening.  I am now an owner of a goldfish plant, a spider plant, catnip seeds and i think one or two other things.  I'll take a pic of my patio if i get it finished.  there are a few more things i want for my patio.  We will see if it happens or not.

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!
