Not much sewing happened this last week. Spending all day in vendor evaluations coupled with entertaining out of town guests just wasn't conductive to having the energy to spend on stitching. Plus I've discovered that my teal scraps are just not sufficient to make any of the sampler blocks. There is not much that would work as background fabrics (the pieces are really small), most of the large teal scraps are really busy prints. That would make for some unattractive sampler blocks. So I broke down and ordered a few fat quarters of teal from Connecting Threads. Those aren't here yet. My only progress has been to make some of the half square triangles for this month's Inverted Star block.
I really had to scrounge to find 12 different scraps form which I could cut the triangles. I still need 4 2.5 inch squares cut from different fabrics so I don't repeat any in the block. I don't think I've got those last 4, so this one may have to wait till the Connecting Threads order comes in before I can finish it.
I did finally get the last month's pink Inverted Star block all sewn together and up on the design wall with January's block.

I'm really happy with how they look together. It's going to be a fun scrappy quilt when it's all done.
