Boys New Bedding

Years ago, my mom started collecting airplane fabric to make Eli a quilt. As many of my mom's projects go, she went crazy buying fabric. She finished the quilt a few weeks ago and found that she had enough to make one for Wyatt and Luke. She also made them pillow shams and a throw pillow for each bed. Believe it or not when I told her we were having another boy, she said she has leftover fabric to make another quilt for our new little boy. See, more great reasons to have another boy! She did a great job and the boys love their "new room". The last picture is the throw pillow that she made for Eli's bed, it is a picture of an airplane that Eli drew when he was 2 1/2. She saved the picture, enlarged it and embroidered it onto the pillow. For those of you who are wondering, yes, we have all three boys in one room. It makes for some fun long nights, but we wouldn't have it any other way. Jeremy says we are putting #4 in there too. We'll see about that.

I'm right there with you with all kids in the same room to preserve having a playroom! Now we're starting to stagger bedtime after baths since the weather is nice which = filthy boys! It works when I have the energy to make it work :) I still attribute my boys becoming buddies to room sharing. Love hearing them laughing together in there! You have BEAUTIFUL boys!!! I'm sure #4 will be a handsome addition! And you're still looking fabulous too! Well done, you!

How cute are those! That looks like a lot of time and love to make them. 4 boys in one room sounds messy! If Jeremy wants to help clean it every day let him put the baby in there too.

Your mom is AMAZING!

Those quilts are amazing! Congratulations on all of your boys. Who knows, maybe some of your boys and some of our girls will end up together?! I'm only kidding, but that would be kind of cool. I have to admit I was a little sad when I found out we were having another girl. Kevin really wanted a brother. We pretty much have ourselves content with the fact that the boys will come when all these girls start getting married. I hope that you are feeling well!

The pictures of the quilts are really nice- but--in person that are incredible! I agree--you have a great talent just like your mom.

Nice choice of color and design for boys room bedding set... I found great options for kids bedding at Annas Linens...
