Work in Progress Wednesday

Finally, some love for my scrap quilt.  With the Super Bowl and some rainy weather I have been snuggled under this quilt getting a good portion of it done.  I might actually see it done in the near future.  Unfortunately, most of my other projects have sat neglected and I have no new projects to share….


… except that my awesome husband made me a new design wall.  We used the Oh Fransson! Making a Design Wall tutorial and it was super easy.  Just a board of foam insulation from Home Depot, some white cotton batting, and duct tape.  Of course, I would have loved the mac daddy design wall that she made, but I need it to be semi portable, so guess it is half a design wall for me.  


On going projects:

Modern Triangles Quilt Along – I have the quilt top done and the back all pieced, now I just need to sandwich it all together.

My pincushion for the Bee a {Modern} Swapper swap – my first attempt at foundation piecing was unsuccessful.  I used muslin, but this time I think I will try paper.  Hopefully I will have better luck the second time around.

Sewing with my daughter – We are still making some 4 patch quilt blocks for 4 Patches 4 Hope. She is doing really well and cranking out some awesome blocks. 

Apple Core Quilt – A little more progress…
