Forest QAL Progress

I have been falling behind on the Forest QAL as I have been pushing to get my May BOMs done and I snuck in a baby quilt for my daughter's sister-in-law that recently adopted a newborn baby boy.  I have lots to share this week but first up is my progress on my Forest QAL blocks.  I love how all of these are turning out and want to share the three I made in the last week.  

I fell in love with the red panda that Amy from Badskirt added to the Forest QAL

Love, Love, Love him...He is too cute for words.

Then I started the liverwort block with the snail that Julianna from Sewing Under Rainbow added a few weeks ago calling it Slow Spring Coming.  I got this far:

At this point I ran out of background fabric. Acccccckkk!!!
I bought it at Boardwalk Quilts about 120 miles from my house.  I tried to find it at Fabric Depot but no luck so I came home and got to work on making the latest pattern, a cute little squirrel. This little squirrel was provided to the Forest QAL by Amy from During Quiet Time. She is the same person I sent my Shoe flag to for the Boston With Love project so I got a kick out of creating her little friend.  Here is how this little fellow turned out:

After cleaning up after making this one, I decided I should tidy up my area and guess what...I found another fat quarter of the background I was missing for my liverwort block.  Cleaning really does pay off. Woot, Woot!!!  Happy Dance for sure!!!

So I was able to finish it up also.  Yeah!!!  I love how it turned out but on retrospect wish the snail's body had been a darker fabric to stand out more.

So far this is how the group looks of all the blocks together

Just three more blocks to finish the series.  Can't wait to see what the last two will be and choosing fabrics for my fern and flower block this week.

Keep Stitchin'
