Carl's Quilt and a Stash report

I am on Easter break from school, and despite needing to study for a National Counselor Exam, I needed a break. 

I finished Carl's quilt!  This is a lovely little lap sized quilt.  It is sooo warm.  I used a flannel fabric for the back and quilted it with a simple meander, making sure to stitch around all of the pockets.  When I completed that, I started on some of the Orca Bay string blocks.  Who knows how long it will take to finish the top, but the adventure is what keeps me happy.

Here is the stash report!  I have already counted my string block fabric so there is nothing new to add.
