wip wednesday: quiltcon here i come!

QuiltCon is finally here! My friend Michelle and I leave today for Austin, Texas... a city I've heard great things about. I'm excited to learn new things and hopefully make new quilty friends! I'll also be Instagramming all the fun too... I'm @seaschellquilts if you'd like to follow along!

I've been working feverishly to finish some things before leaving for Texas. 4x5 Bee blocks certainly needed to be done as the mailing date is February 23rd, right in the middle of my trip. I managed to squeak those out yesterday and ran them down to the post office.

But I'm most proud of this finish- a duffle bag to use as my carry-on! I loooooove it!

Duffle bag!

Unfortunately, I ran out of time so I started two other projects that didn't get finished: pajama pants and a bag to hold my cutting mat and rulers Those two WIPs are in pieces scattered around my sewing room, which currently looks as though a fabric bomb went off in it. C'est la vie!

And with that, I'm off!

Linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday!

ETA: I'm having trouble with the linky tool on Freshly Pieced, so I probably won't get the chance to link up this week!

  1. your duffel bag is really lovely. i always wish that i made the time to sew my own bags but then i'm frozen when it comes to choosing fabrics. i have too many favorites :)
