Design Wall Monday - May 6th

It was a wet and cold weekend, which was perfect for sitting in the sewing room doing some stitching.  I did get to do a bit of that before and after the volleyball tournament this weekend.  Club ball is now ended, but this week are the try outs for the high school team.  So practice sessions may still be going on, but at least there won't be any weekend games for a while.  

Over the last week I've been working mainly on Calico Cats as it needs to be finished this month.

Pattern is Fat Cats from the

The Quilter Magazine (July 2006)
by Lucy A. Fazely and Micheal L. Burns

The blocks are all done and the sashing has been started.  The rows haven't been sew together yet, hopefully I'll finish adding all the binding strips and make some head way on sewing the rows together tonight.

The Mon Ami blocks are back up on the secondary design wall.

The half square triangles that make up the Friendship Star blocks are a good leaders and enders project while I finish up Calico Cats.  

That's it for my Design Wall Monday.  Check out all the other Monday design walls over at Patchwork Times.
