I came up with new system so everyone could see all the quilts and then pick one as their turn came up.
Nicholas helped me set up the system. We put a number on each quilt.
My two assistants, Nicholas and Blake took turns showing the quilts so people could see them all before it was time to make a choice.
You can see how intently everyone is watching the quilts. I suggested they either keep track of their favorites on their smart phones or with paper and pencil.
Thanks to Nate I have a full record of ALL the quilts available to choose from.
After all,the quilt were shown Cooper picked one person at a time to choose a quilt. This year we identified people by their year of birth rather than their name. The reason for this will be made clear in a later blog post.
Everyone walked away happy and there are still several great quilts for another day.
