Family Christmas Quilt Gifting

This year the quilts each family member got to choose from were larger than last years.
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.

I love your assistants and all that amazing quilts. You are lucky to give your quilts to people who are eager to have them. Love to see what you create in 2016. Happy New Year.

Kay….I just love this idea…..unfortunately, our family has shrunk so much and are never all together for holidays anymore. I need to think about how I could offer up such a wonderful way to share my quilts….perhaps via the internet!
