Go for it. I would definitely buy one. How much? Serious. You can send me a pm if you do not want to advertize on the site.

They're awfully cute but to be honest, I'd only be interested in them if the squares are actual works of some sort. Counted cross stitch? Definitely! Actual pieced quilting? Couldn't resist them!! Embroidery? You betcha!!! However, if they're just printed pictures, I'd sadly pass them by.

I agree, it is hard to predict. I used to be a vendor at an annual craft fair, and it was always surprising what would be an instant sensation. I sold painted items and did ok most of the time. But one year, a mother and daughter brought several heating corn bags and sold them so fast, they had to leave and go get more. They did not decorate their space or anything, just used the table given and laid the bags out. People went crazy over them. But the next year, they couldn't sell them at all.

Never know what the mood of the customer will be. I quit doing them and never looked back.

Very nice. I also like the one on the right. That bead chain is very popular now and has a heavier look to it which I like.

I would put a few in my jewelry case. $$$$$ ?????
peace

At a quilt show, or in an area where quilting is really popular, they would probably sell. Elsewhere, maybe not so much.
