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.


  1. I am super excited about the quilt I got. It matches all of the colors of my house so well! YIPEE!!

    If you are going to start with the darkest next year, I'm going to start working on my tan right away!!
