I-Spy Fabric Picks...and some Sneak Peaks

Everybody has been awesome about adding their I-Spy choices to the Flickr group.  You can see all the awesome prints here (and mine will be added as soon as their servers are working.  I thought I'd go ahead and share my fabric choices for the current I-Spy Swap.  If you're not familiar with I-Spy Quilts, each square has a different picture on them, and you generally get the squares as parts of I-Spy swaps.  I've hosted several swaps in the past, and will be doing one again soon.  If you'd like to be notified of the next one, you can go here and fill out the form at the bottom of the post or I have a couple of extra sets of I-Spy squares listed for sale in my shop here.  I also make custom I-Spy quilts if you're not up for making one yourself.

It was fun going through my stash to choose some fun ones.  (And I realized just how many more I have!  EEEEK!)

So I came up with two regular sets...

And I also cut up two regular sets using fabric donated by Patty of You Keep Me in Stitches.  Patty still has lots of I-Spy fabrics left to choose from in her shop, so be sure to stop by and take a peak.
The squares from these two swap spots will be used to make quilts to benefit kids at Seattle Children's Hospital through Katie's Comforters.

Patty chose some really fun ones!

I especially love the little mushrooms, footballs, and mice.

And here are my picks for the Christmas Half-Swap.

I think I'll be using my Christmas I-Spys for some place mats.

There was enough interest that there are actually two Christmas Half-Swaps, and we still have 7 spots left if anyone is interested. Go here to sign up.

And finally, I just couldn't help but add in a couple of sneak peeks...these are both projects I've been working on this week that make me smile everyone time walk past them.  The rocket boys triangles are just waiting for a binding...

...and I just finished this top last night...

What are you working on this weekend?

Please show my sponsors some love...
