Work in Progress Wednesday

You may or may not remember but a couple of weeks ago I finished a memory quilt for my oldest son.  Now, I have pulled out, sorted, and washed some clothes for my next memory quilt.  This time I am going to make a quilt for my daughter, but I am taking a departure from baby clothes and making her a quilt out of all the dress my mother made for her when she was a toddler.  I haven’t quite figured out the layout or block, but no rush, when it comes to me I will know.  


I have also been doing a bit of housecleaning on the blog.  I have updated the About Me page above and even added a picture of myself.  I am generally very shy about putting myself out there, so this was a big step for me, but I felt it was time.  

I also, took some time and organized my Tutorials page.  I had no idea that I had this many tutorials.  This has been on my list of things to do for a long time now and I am very happy with the results.  I would love to hear what you think.

New projects:

Modern Folder Star Mini Quilt – Remember this mini quilt that I made last year for the Mini Quilt Challenge over at Amy Lou Who Sews?  Well it has been very popular on Pinterest and a couple of people ask for a tutorial.  So, here you go.  The squares are cut and ready to go.  I am using my Sugar Creek fabric by Denyse Schmidt.  I just couldn’t wait to cut into it.


On going projects:

Modern Triangles Quilt Along – This quilt is finished!  I am so excited, it came out better than I expected, I even love the back of it.  I can’t wait for the big reveal on Friday.


My pincushion for the Bee a {Modern} Swapper swap – I didn’t even touch it.  After all the trouble I had with it last week, I just needed a break from it. 

Apple Core Quilt – A little more progress… but not much.

2010 Scrap Quilt – Don’t ask… I haven’t touched it since the Super Bowl.  Seriously, I never thought I would “need” time in front of the TV to get this done.  I might need to download a good series off of Netflix this weekend.  Any suggestions?

  2. Nice quilt Ann...I am so anxious for Friday!! Binding mine tonight.
