We got him a big boy bed yesterday. You can sneak a peek at his new quilt here.
It's still needing to be bound.

This one's not quite as far along, unfortunately. I have a brown and blue block that are almost finished but will need to cut more green, purple and pink for sure.
I also have some black I Spy blocks that didn't work the way I'd hoped in my color scheme. Might make pillows out of them. :)
Months ago, I signed up for a couple different swaps online for 4 inch charm squares. One swap was for I spy fabric and the other was a color wheel swap.
All along, I've been planning on doing something with them that let me play with color.
I think these quilts are going to be quickly tied with vintage sheets as backings and I will likely skip the batting. I'd like nice and lightweight blankets for each of my boys to use in the living room.
My hubby likes to keep things chilly around here, especially at night & it's always colder downstairs than it is in our bedrooms.
I ran out of orange squares. Guess that's not a popular I Spy color. I'll raid my stash tomorrow.
I'm making one for Owen, too. Will have to post another post because I'm using Flickr to post & it only allows one photo per blog post.
My mom recently retired and moved to another state. After living in the same place for over 20 years, she had a LOT of stuff to go through & couldn't move everything... So...
One thing she collects is antique buttons. Mom goes to garage sales all the time. Estate sales too, and she's always on the lookout for buttons.
I "borrowed" a gallon of her buttons when I was making stick horses. I needed horse eyeballs, you see...
And she has 4 more gallons at her house in Texas.
This morning, I convinced her that she should let me sell them on Etsy. I think they're treasures and I'll likely keep my favorites, but I think they'll sell well. I think people will want to buy pretty buttons to keep in a box and pet... or in a jar on a shelf to admire... or they might even want to use them on their sewing projects...
Here's a small sampling of what I've got to sell. I'm thinking of grouping them by color. They're so pretty & all unique.
We also have some on their original cards. I think these will be great sellers, too.
I'm doing some research today on how much I should charge. Do you think there will be much interest in these & more like them?
