WIP Wednesday: I Need a Nap!

Well, Quilt Market was great, and insane, and exhausting, and I'm still in recovery mode, but I wanted to get the WIP Wednesday linky up for you anyway! I'll be back in the next few days with a full Market wrap-up, plus the release of my new patterns, one of which you can see in the photo of my booth below! Right now I'm slating that one for release on Thursday, so be sure to come back then!


What are you working on? Let's see it!

WIP Wednesday: Final Prep

T-minus one week and counting until I leave for Quilt Market, and my final prep is in full effect!

I got my second quilt back from Stephanie of Late Night Quilter, who did the gorgeous quilting for me. Eeek, love it so much!

But you know what that means—it's binding time.

And yes, I'm still working on the embroidered sign for my booth. It's been slow going, but I'm still hoping to get it done!


And I started doing a practice run of building the booth in my garage. This is as far as I got yesterday. Today: Walls!

What are you working on? Let's see it!

WIP Wednesday: Just Keep Sewing

Good morning from my corner of insanity! Exactly two weeks until I leave for Quilt Market. Eeek!

Yesterday my first of two quilts came back from Stephanie of Late Night Quilter, who is quilting both of them for me. It looks amazing! Here's a little sneak peek—you'll be seeing more of this one very soon.

And I started another project. Because .... because, I don't know, I enjoy making myself crazy, I guess? This is the Autumn Flight pattern from the book Scraps, Inc., by Beth Vassalo of Plum and June. I'm loving these softer colors right now—it's the calm at the eye of my storm.

This week's WIP Wednesday is brought to you by Marmalade Fabrics! One of Marmalade's most popular offerings is their "Around the Color Wheel" bundle subscriptions. Spend one year taking a trip around the color wheel and building your stash!
