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! (This pattern is now available here!)
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: 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!

WIP Wednesday: A Happy Week

Ah, it’s been quite a week around here, in more ways than one! Lots of exciting things are afoot, but here’s what I’ve got for you today.

Completed:

Solids quilt. This is my first finished quilt of 2012—and I can’t show it to you. How annoying. But I’m very pleased with it, and even more pleased that it’s finished!

New projects:

 
Challenge mini quilt – Mark Cesarik was nice enough to send me a little preview of his upcoming line, Cosmic Burst. These vivid colors practically leaped out of the envelope all on their own–they’re so fabulous! Can’t wait to finish this mini and enter it in the Modern Mini Challenge at Ellison Lane Quilts.
