Moving on to something else.....

K since I am the queen of procrastination, I figure I will put off my to do's and start something I want to do!

I have participated in several I spy swaps that Care over at Obsessively Stitching has hosted. So I have built up my stash quilt a bit. I want to make each of the boys their own ispy quilt for their beds. They have always loved the ispy books so I figured they will love a quilt for their bed.
(Cara's quilt)
So I got out all of my blocks and dumped them on the floor and let the boys pick out their blocks. 

Nathan was very excited!! He helped everyone pick out their blocks.

Kimball true to form picked all the ones that had trains on them. Surprisinly enough there weren't many with trains. (please excuse the naked boy. We are in the middle of potty training)

Brandon wasn't that into it. I think he wanted to watch tv more than he wanted to help pick out blocks. He just isn't that excited about it. But he did end up finding some, I just didn't get a picture of him doing it. 

After they got their blocks (88 each) I still have quite a few left as well as the fact that I am in yet ANOTHER swap! LOL it becomes addicting! But I already have a plan on making another quilt but it will be larger and we will use it as a picnic blanket. I figure it will help keep the kids entertained. 

But with me making my doll quilts, Nathan has been wanting to hang a quilt on his once again I am going to use Cara's wonderful ideas and make one of these for their room. And if Brandon wants one I will make one for his room too. 

I think these might get done pretty soon...With the boys encouragement and how small they are I think they will get done soon!

Just beautiful, Crystal. Just Beautiful. And of course, the little ones are jewels in themselves.
Happy Quilting!

Gorgeous! I love the way to blocks are laid out in the second one. I've been wanting to make an eye spy quilt for awhile....I guess I better start joining some swaps!

BTW- Are you going to Foam Day? I will be there with my two youngest kids around 11. Say 'hi' if you see me!
