Work in Progress Wednesday

This week has been a very productive, because of the nonstop rain, we have been in.  Which means I have been getting a lot of sewing done, but before we begin I want to share the mini quilt I received in the I {heart} the 80's Swap.  I actually got it last week and I can't believe I forgot to share.  I know, how horrible of me.  Anyways, Jenn of Jenn of all Trades made me this Awesome mini quilt for my collection.

New Projects:

Apple Core quilt – Well actually this has been on my "haven't touched in forever" list, but I have pulled it out and dusted it off because I had a brainstorm the other night, to make it go easier.  I took a lesson from the paper piecing hexi makers out there, but instead of using paper I am used heat resistant template plastic.  It doesn't melt when you iron it, so I was able to press some apple core and sew them together like one would sew together hexi's.  Now that I have figured out that it works I am planning to put a little tutorial together today and will share more tomorrow.

My First Quilt A Long - I have picked out my fabric and done the math.  Now I am just waiting for the mail man to deliver my fabric so we can begin.  I am making my 3 year old his first big boy quilt for his new room, and I thought it might be fun to do it together.   

On Going Projects:

Memory Quilt - I have made tons of progress here.  I have all my blocks put together and laid them out.  At first I was a little discouraged that my blocks were not coming out as I had envisioned, but now that they are all laid out I am full of hope again.  Now, I am going to leave it here for a few days move some blocks around till I am happy and then sew the quilt top together.
