Rejecting the commercialism of Christmas I have come up with creative ways to celebrate and give gifts to the family.
Perhaps you have seen some of these quilts on my blog before.
These are all quilts I have made. I decided this year I would share a quilt with my children and grandchildren.
Jessica wrote the numbers on slips of paper. Each person drew a number and they chose the quilt they wanted in turn.
Jeff Jr. got first pick and he promptly chose the Santa Claus quilt with all the grandchildren’s names on Santa’s list.
Married couples shared a pick. Blake and Stephanie chose this hand painted hand appliqued silk quilt.
Cooper quickly chose the light house quilt to match his bedroom.
Jessica chose this quilt made from my hand dyed and shibori fabrics.
When Jared went to pick a quilt he actually got the other quilt too. These are negative positive quilts in a style I love to create.
Kierstin chose this quilt made from hand dyed fabrics. These are the extra fabrics from the quilt on my blog header.
Greg and Julie chose this quilt which was dye painted, painted with paint and then painted some more with paint.
Nick chose this nature themed quilt. I’ll bet he thinks there are frogs hiding somewhere in it!
Jeff Sr chose this quilt which is a spontaneous fused floral arrangement I made.
Heidi chose this freeform pieced quilt made from hand dyed fabrics with a definite southwest feeling.
I am so glad I had enough quilts to give them all their own personal choice. I was surprised with almost all their choices.
This was just one part of the Christmas giving this year.
