pdq Club - May Edition And More Quilt Market!


Did you have a great Memorial Day Weekend? We had a relaxing long weekend. It was especially needed and now we are back at work here at Henry Glass. This week we are catching up with our monthly features and we're going to show you some more market photos. Here are some more photos of our booth. Then we'll showcase a designer's booth in the next few days.

We have our adorable stewardesses, Talia and Andrea, in uniform. They are showing off the grand prize goodies and the names of the winners of our giveaways. The ladies are standing in our demo area of our booth.




Across the way from the Henry Glass booth, Jill Finley of Jillily Studios, had her booth. She not only designed and put together her own booth but she did the same for the Henry Glass booth in Portland as well! You can see a few photos here. Thank you Jill for such an awesome booth.

Jill started working on the booth months ago. Then it came time to set it all up in Portland. Here's Jill and the crew setting working on the Henry Glass booth.


Afterwards Jill still had to run over across the way to finish setting up her own booth. Look at what Jill used for the flooring of her booth. The whole thing turned out beautifully!













In between all of this Quilt Market madness, Jill still put together a fabulous pdq* Club [*PRETTY DARN QUICK] project for you.



This project is so timely because summer is just around the corner. Perhaps you're looking to make a teacher's gift or you can make this fun project for yourself. Take it to the beach with all of your essentials. What fun! You can download the pattern here.






Thanks, Jill!

Here is the winner for last month's pdq* Club [*PRETTY DARN QUICK] drawing. E-mail your details here:

I am going on a weekend trip with my sister on Friday and when I saw the bag I thought it would be perfect to bring. I need a bag to leave in the car with sunglasses, my pills, goodies, and other things that you want to have handy. I think you have a winner.

Cute bag that would make a perfect teacher gift. I say this because my DH is a teacher and if he got such a cute bag, I'm pretty sure I'd get to have it!

JoyceLM said...

Love the bag - thanks for the tutorial Jill.

PunkiePie (Jen) said...

Adorable bag!! I'm already thinking of what fabrics I have at home to make it. Would make a fabulous teacher gift as mentioned. I wish I hadn't made my daughter's Teacher gift already!

Emily C said...

Love this bag. Pockets have so many uses. I don't live near the beach, so I'm thinking of changing this a little bit and making it into a tote for projects. It looks big and roomy, great for my current traveling hand quilting project and the accompanying sewing kit and thread embellishment box.

Will definitely make this bag for my DIL to take to the pool with the twins.

Laura T said...

This is such a cute bag and looks easy to boot to make! Thanks so much for sharing:) I thought the booth ideas were so clever and loved how much detail she put into each booth so everything related to each other. She really went all out and such clever ideas. Loved the luggage tags and then the two airline attendants in uniform - such amazing detail and I loved her brick patio:)
