Can you believe how fast the last 72 hours have gone by?! It's already the end of Day 2, and Market will soon be coming to a close for us (we take off for Texas tomorrow). We will be sad to see the end of it, but we feel so fortunate to have been a part of this! And we are so, so appreciative of y'all following along and experiencing Market right by our side! It has truly been an amazingly gorgeous and creative weekend! We can't wait to show you all the great stuff we saw today...and you probably can't wait either! So without any further ado, feast your eyes on the deliciousness of Day 2 (oh! and ANOTHER giveaway!):

If you just can't get enough of Quilt Market, make sure you follow us on Twitter! Any tweet hash-tagged with #quiltmarket went to this live feed, and as you can see, we have it covered!
And even after a long day of exploring and tweeting about Market, we still make time for our creative sides. Sarah and Jocelyn got their craft on with Amanda Herring from The Quilted Fish, making these stylish fabric necklaces!
As you can see from our photos, there is always tons to see at Market! And as the fabric and quilt lovers that we are, we really want to see all of it! What does that mean for us? A LOT of walking! So it's very important to bring the right shoes, which we did! For this giveaway, we'd thought we'd get a little personal with y'all and let you see who we are in terms of shoes! All you have to do is take a look at the picture below and try to guess who is wearing which ultra-comfy-super-duper-walking shoes at Market right now:
Just leave a comment on this post matching each numbered head shot with a lettered pair of shoes. If you guess correctly, you could be the lucky winner of this Simply Color Fat Quarter Bundle by V and Co. for Moda Fabrics (that's right! Vanessa Christenson is designing for Moda now!). But that's not all, you'll also win four brand new It's Sew Emma Patterns:
The contest will close tomorrow, May 20th, at 10:00 PM CST. The winner will be announced on Monday, May 21st. Good luck!
