WIP Wednesday: IG-ing It

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced 
Since I'm in the middle of the mad rush to get ready for Spring Quilt Market, let's do this week's WIP Wednesday Instagram style ...

I've been finishing quilt tops ....

Quilting them and getting them ready for binding ...

Shipping off patterns for Sample Spree .... (if you'll be at Sample Spree, come pick up a sampler pack of all 7 of my patterns!)

And hand-stitching binding. Everywhere. Even in the preschool parking lot while waiting for pick-up. : )

Want to see lots of eye candy from Quilt Market over the next few days? Then follow me on Instagram—I will share and share and share some more!

This WIP Wednesday has been brought to you by Cuts of Cotton. Cuts of Cotton was closed for the past few weeks while owner Emily was on maternity leave (congratulations, Emily! She had a baby boy!). But Cuts of Cotton re-opened this week, and Emily is celebrating by offering all of you a discount!

Get 15% off anything in the shop now through Sunday, May 18, with the code "Wednesday". Sounds like a great way to kick off your summer sewing, so go send Cuts of Cotton some love!

What are you working on this week? Here are the linky rules:
1. Link up any blog post from the past week that features an unfinished work-in-progress (WIP).
2. Somewhere in your post, you must link back here to my blog.
3. Comment on at least a few of the other WIP Wednesday links—commenting on the two or three links directly before yours works well to make sure everyone gets comments!


  1. I love that first photo of the star - I take my sewing everywhere I go. have a great trip to market!

  2. Your work is fine! Thanks for the party.

  3. Now I feel like I'm missing out while I'm not on Instagram.

  4. Can't wait to see all the pics! Have a great time and thanks for hosting!

  5. Good to see I'm not the only one that hand binds any-and-every where! Hope all goes well at the Spring Quilt Market ... I'm looking forward to seeing all the loveliness through your IG feed :)

  6. I'm not sure that this is really the right place for this comment but here goes anyway. I am fairly new to blogging so I might be doing some thing wrong, but I have had quite a bit of trouble commenting on some of the WIP posts. Some are really straight forward to enter comments but some blog sites, especially those that require confirmation that "you are not a robot" style just don't seem to work for me.
    Again sorry if this is not the right place to raise this issue but it is disappointing to not be able to offer comments especially when the post has been really inspiring.

    1. Hi clothworkers - Everyone who links up to WIP Wednesday has their own blog settings and their own way of preventing spam, so it's up to each individual blogger to address this and there's no universal way for you to fix it. I'm not sure why the captcha codes aren't working for you, but I will say that this is exactly why I don't use captcha codes on my comment form! I've been successful in preventing most spam by just not allowing anonymous comments.Captcha codes are a pain and I think many readers just skip commenting on blogs that have them, so I wish everyone would consider removing that function from their blog.

    2. Thank you for the response. Unfortunately I am steering away from commenting on those blogs as well.

  7. Congratulations Emily!

    I so wish I was able to go to quilt market but at least I'll be able to live vicariously through everyone who is there! And at least I have my mini quilt there to represent me! :)

  8. I love those sneak peeks of your jungle avenue quilts. I can't wait to see the whole thing. Have a wonderful time at market!

  9. Have a great time at Market.

  10. Have fun at Market! I'll be following along on IG.


I love comments and read every one of them! : )
