WIP Wednesday: While I'm Packing

Just one more day until I leave for Market! I am so excited! I've never been to Quilt Market, but I hear it's quite a spectacle. I can't wait to see it for myself and meet lots of quilty bloggy friends. In the meantime, here's what I've been up to as I scramble to get ready to go.

By the way, I'll be tweeting and Instagram-ing from Market, so follow me in both places! My Twitter feed is here, and I'm "freshlypieced" on Instagram. If you don't have the Instagram app, you can also follow on Webstagram to see pictures of fabric, fabric, and more fabric! You can find my feed here

Summersville and Essex Linen
Completed projects:
Summersville pillow - All done, but you'll have to wait a few more weeks to see the rest of this one.

NY Beauty Swap - a start
New projects:
New York Beauty Swap - I joined a New York Beauty swap among a few friends and got that underway this week. My partner seems to have pretty similar taste to me, and especially loves bright, clear colors, so I'm hoping this will be right up her alley. : )
