Quarter 2 Goals

I actually forgot about the Quarter 1 Goals link up. Oh, well, I think I only finished one from my original list anyway. Following are my Quarter 2 Goals:

1.) #9 Frivol Small Table Quilt
2.) Dash in the Box quilt.
3.) One of these Baskets to use on our Camper.
4.) This quilt still needs the binding added. So that should be easy.
5.) I would like to sew this Baggalista to use when I go camping.
6.) Finish this Frivol. I do have it started.
7.) I would like to sew this apple pouch. Maybe I will get it done.
8.) One or both of these Minis.

Dash in the Box Blocks

For my April OMG, I would like to finish the remainder of the blocks for this quilt.
I think this is a unique geometric-shaped quilt, so I am sewing this for my son. I have one set of the blocks sewn and would like to finish the rest for the quilt top by the end of the month. 
I am using very similar colors as this magazine pattern. I think my son will like it for his couch.

Elvis Poolside Tote

I decided to sew another Poolside Tote because I used my other one a lot for the past 2 Summers. It is a nice size to carry a few towels and other necessary stuff. I've had this Elvis fabric in my stash for a while so I thought it would work for this beach bag.
 I used Annie's Soft n Stable and quilted straight lines so it does stand up on its own.

 I thought it turned out pretty cute.  
The lining was getting on my nerves because it didn't want to sit in the bag well, even though I had trimmed off more at the top to fit. I think the fabric was just too flimsy for this large of a bag. I think I should have interfaced the lining and it would have made it stiffer. It will work fine, though. I am going to tack it a couple places through the seams.
This is the inside slip pocket.

And this is the inside zip pocket. I used these "crowns" for The King.
This Elvis beach bag was on my March One Monthly Goal. And here was my Original Post

Frivolous Purchase

Trying to work my way through these Frivols that I purchased. I bought these monthly, but of course, I did not have the time to sew them. The fabric is very pretty for this Little  Miss Sunshine Frivol which was #9. It is kind of "Springy" so it should look nice for Easter.
I think it is a cute design and I ended up with a lot of triangles that possibly I can use for something later on. I thought that if I don't use them as triangles, I can cut them into small squares.

I didn't purchase the backing fabric, but I have plenty in my stash that should look ok. I would like to finish quilting it in a few weeks so that I can use it for a gift.
