Actually, the all of last week was a good one in terms of sewing. Fabric was cut to make more blocks for the May UFO, but as yet there is nothing to show on the design wall for that one. The cutting and piecing requirements for the "C" letter block in the Scrappy Coffee Cup quilt was worked out, but no actual work has been done on it. So again, nothing new on the design wall. There was progress on the Fat Quarter Stars Quilt Along project.

from Moose on the Porch Quilts
I've started framing the blocks. I don't have enough fabric to set the quilt exactly according to the Moose on the Porch Quilts published pattern, but I've used the pattern as a guideline.
Also up on the design wall are the first 2 blocks of the Sweet Treats Quilt Along that Judy has going at Patchwork Times.

I didn't really intend to start anything new, but Judy's pattern for her May color palette quilt just stuck in my head. I went to bed Friday night thinking about what fabrics there might be in the stash to make this quilt, but not really consciously thinking I'd start a version. Then Saturday I was in the stash closet putting up some fabric that had just been ironed and folded when I spied the pile of 1920's red and blue fat quarters that had been used in another project. The 1920 reproduction fabrics aren't usually my style, but one of the quilt alongs at the local quilt shop used blocks published in the Kansas City Star back in the 1920's and so I bought a few fat quarters to make this quilt.

That's it for me this week. Check out all the other eye candy over at Judy's Patchwork Times.
