Progress on Many Fronts!

I think I may have too many things going!  But, that said, I am making progress at trimming my stash--especially from green fabrics and even more from green batiks!

First, this quilt is going to go to Wrap A Smile.  The person responsible for this is Terry and she sent volunteers a piece of fabric from Africa to be used in WAS quilts. 

I thought about my fabric a lot and came up with a simplified way to use it to best advantage because of its big design.
A close up of the fabric and then one of my wonky quilting of this quilt.

HSTeria and RSC14
64 HST blocks made this past week.  With green as a focus for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge I found greens that hadn't been used for more than five years and then for the HST I decided on the block design I wanted to work toward with my Batiks.
I made some into blocks.
These will go to sunshine
These are being used with more to trim and will eventually find their way into a donation quilt.

 These are the batiks and I'm loving this design for them.  This way I can use the variety I have without it driving me crazy figuring out how to use it up!
also some strings toward a quilt

this green is just a small piece I had and will be saved for later use with the giraffe fabric

I also finished up 48 crumb blocks that will go into a donation quilt. These were also from green batik scraps!  Lots of green moving around my space for sure! 

I'm taking a rest from it to finish up a Peacock quilt for my sis.

What a productive week you've had! Feels good when a plan comes together. Great work with the green and the quilting on the smile quilt.

You have been busy. What a wonderful cause for your donation quilt.
I understand how you feel about too many projects under construction. I'm there.
