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.
