Planner clips with DCWV

Welcome DCWV fans! It’s Jenifer from the DCWV Social Media Design Team!  So have you heard that DCWV is coming out with Planners :)  I CAN'T WAIT!!!!!  So I thought that in the mean time I would make some planner clips to help pass the time.

For these clips I used the DIY Project Stacks-Tags and Favor Boxes.  Do you ever end up with extra bits and pieces from your favorite stacks?  Making these planner clips takes just minutes and you can use up some of your scraps.  

I just love how they look sticking out of my Travelers Notebook, perfect for February.  I see a need for a ton of these in my future.

Here they are from the side.  Do you see my Monogram charms...These just happen to be from Blue Moon Beads.  Love them.
Thank you so much for stopping by today be on the look out for the new DCWV planners they are going to be awesome.

Quilt as you go with ThermOWeb and Jen Jangles Fabrics

Happy New Year Therm O Web fans.  This is Jenifer here with you today to share a fun quilt I made using the wonderful Jen Jangles fabrics and an easy QAYG block.  In December I started getting a little overwhelmed with all of my unfinished projects sitting in boxes. There were a few of these blocks in there because I was trying out a new technique then other assignments and projects got in the way and there it sat.  I knew I wanted to start the year off with a clean slate.  I finished 1 project a week and had 4 finished quilts to show for it and to give as gifts, Win Win.  My Daughter has claimed this one as her Movie Quilt to snuggle in and watch movies.
I make a lot of projects through the year and I end up with a lot of scrap pieces of StitchNSew Sew in Fleece.  I don't like to throw away the larger pieces but I didn't know what do do with them either.  My solution was Quit as you Go (QAYG).  Maureen Cracknell has an awesome tutorial on how to get started.  My blocks finish at 9" and the sashing is 2".  This quilt is not very big and it is a perfect lap quilt size and a completely manageable project for a new technique.
Tip: Taking a picture of your blocks can help you see the big picture to find out if any of the same colors are touching. Snapping a few pictures can help with placement and also if you need to clean up your area you can easily put everything back into place.

Quilting 9" blocks is a lot easier than quilting a whole quilt, when I was ready to layer I used my SprayNBond Basting spray to hold the back in place and quilted 1/4" on each side of my sashing and my quilt was done.
