Happy Wednesday! I’m back from Quilt Market and feeling so motivated! I saw some amazing fabric, fabulous new patterns, and I can’t wait to get sewing. And you know what? I have only a few deadlines on the horizon and I am so excited to do some fun, whatever-I-want-to-do kind of sewing this summer.
Anyway, since I spent most of the last week in Pittsburgh, how about some pictures from Market in lieu of WIPs today? Here were some of the highlights for me:
A Quilter’s Mixology
by Angela Pingel of Cut to Pieces—this book is such a fresh, original take on Drunkard’s Path blocks and curved piecing. Angela’s Schoolhouse session actually made me excited about curved piecing for the first time ever! For real!
Oh yeah, the Cotton + Steel collections really do live up to the hype. Everything these ladies do is just so … smart. I want to grow up to be them someday. : )
American Made Brand solids by Clothworks is a fantastic new line of solids that are made right here in the states. Gotta love that.
My WIP Wednesday Market Wrap-Up has been brought to you by Marmalade Fabrics. Marmalade is running the second year of its Around the Color Wheel monthly bundles. You can subscribe in 1/2 yards of FQs, or you can purchase the bundles individually (past bundles are still available!). Marmalade even has a special program for buyers outside the U.S. to save you on shipping. Check out all of Marmalde’s bundles right here.
Giveaway: This week Marmalde is giving away one Around the Color Wheel bundle for May, in the Ruby Red colorway. To enter, just leave a comment answering this question: “When purchasing fabric bundles, what do you consider the perfect size/amount of fabric per bundle?” a) 12 fat quarters; b) 6 fat quarters; c) 6 half yards; d) 8 half yards. I’ll draw a random winner next Wednesday!
And in the meantime, link up your WIPs! 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!
