A (small) finish and a start

I've been working on a costume for a friend of my daughter. Hopefully I will have a picture of it next week. But I have squeezed a few small quilty projects in while working on the dress.

Here is Beach Boys 2, quilted and bound!  
The backing is so cute--dog tags with names; I just turned it round to the front for the binding.

I participated in a fabric swap for "I Spy" squares. I was so thrilled when the swapped fabrics were returned to me that I jumped right in and started a disappearing nine patch!
This is only half the swapped squares. The other half are very boyish prints, so I am making a girly quilt and a boyish quilt!

I'm linking up with Susan at

Love the Beach Boys 2 quilt and its backing fabric. Totally charming!

Your Disappearing 9 Patch I Spy quilt is going together wonderfully quickly. Your idea to make two quilts is stellar!

Applause, applause!!

You KNOW I love that BBII quilt! It's wonderful. I like your charm square pieces too. I've done two I spy charm square swap but haven' made any quilts from them yet.

You so inspired me when I first saw your doggie quilt squares. I saved a copy of the picture of the first squares and went out and bought a similar theme,,,mine is dogs on a picnic. I'm gonna copy cat your quilt (the greatest form of flattery!) Now,,,where did you get that adorable background fabric? Love it!
