Finishes, Cleaning and Quilting to Be Done!

Okay, somehow I went from having nothing finished to having 4 quilts that need to be quilted! How did I do that? I have no idea!
A baby quilt, a donation quilt, my charm pack quilt (woohoo!) and my Diamond Chains quilt. Wow. I've got a lot to do. And I have no batting. I have one long piece on my design board but it's not wide enough to do anything and it's not long enough to sew together. So I'm waiting until the new 40% coupon comes out so I can hit Hobby Lobby up for some Warm and Natural!
I've also been busy trying to straighten up my fabric. I got sick of not being able to see anything. I'm still not done but it's looking much better.
This is the lovely 'BEFORE' shot.
Keep in mine this is just the area where I keep my fabric. I couldn't tell where anything was. Here it is at the moment.
Still not perfect but MUCH better. There's Helen Mulder Peterson right next to Amy Butler! And Joel Dewberry's getting chummy with Riley Blake! Very cool! All being buddies right where they should be. My Joann/HobbyLobby/Walmart fabrics are on the second row for other projects.
I ALSO got some other projects done. Well, at least the pieces that had been posted. Here's the latest Embroidery 101 block...

and the latest Skill Builder block, the Ohio Star.

I like mine by itself with the green as the solid. I just can't decide if it's too overpowering when put with all the other blocks.
Hmmm... I'll think about it.
No picture yet, but the red and white hexie quilt is nearing the 1000 hexies mark! The little bar graph on my blog is up to 940!!

Holy Cow- you've been a productive lady! I like your Ohio Star. Maybe if you use the green in another block or two it won't stand out as much. You never know until they're all together. PS- nice organization. Doesn't it feel nice to be able to find things. :)
