That was fun!

Wow!  That was fun!  Everyone has picked a quilt and they liked doing it.  I got a kick out of the process so I will probably do it again.  I actually have enough quilt tops done already for next year, I just need to quilt them.
Just to clear a few things up.
Ben, These are "Use" quilts.  You will probably have to inherit the "Look at" quilts. Sorry, you will have to paint that wall after all.
I know it appears that the order was from whitest (Sarah) to not so white (Val), but that was pure chance, and also very funny. Maybe next year I will have someone from a remote area do the drawing. When Sarah was drawn first I expected someone to say, " Yeah, because Sarah is Mom's favorite." Sure enough, Sarah herself said it. But I let the draw stand even knowing I was going to get flack. And you have to admit, her excitement was pretty funny. Sometimes having children is a huge chore even when most of them are over 30!  I'm glad Val ended up with the Valentine quilt, cause she is Val.  I thought that was appropriate.
Abby already claimed her quilt.
Caleb is only 16, I'm not wasting a quilt on him yet. Maybe next year.
Love you all.  It sure was fun that you were excited to get one of my quilts.

Quilts for Christmas

 I'm sure you will all be happy to know that I now have teeth! 
 I have decided to give all my children a quilt for Christmas.  I am putting a picture and description here so they can pick which one they want. Since I'm sure they will all want the same one, I will draw names to see who will draw first, second etc.
This is the order of the draw.

Here are the quilts.

                             Purple Mystery-56 inches x 56 inches

                                                              Crazy Hearts-54x69  (Abby)
                                                  Valentine Hearts-78x85 (Val)
                                  Cowboys-67x81 (Sorry for the bad picture) (Hannah)
                                              Civil War X's and O's- 75x83 (Betsy)
                                               Simple Frustration-71x86 (Andrea)
                                                   Purple and Turquoise Boxes- 63x75
                                                     Homespun clover-72x98 (Sarah)
Pick which one you want and I'll get it to you, starting with Sarah. There will be one left over. Love you guys
