The huge Christmas Quilt Give Away went great. I didn't get any pictures of the presentations because it was total pandemonium when we opened our gifts at my dad's house on Christmas night. Everyone seemed to like what they got, so that was good.
Oh, and my widowed brother in law? Who I was debating whether or not I should give him a quilt as I wasn't sure he really would know what to do with it? Well. That was the most gratifying presentation of all. He loved what he got. Then he started telling me how my sister who passed away a year and a half ago had a quilt I had made for her on their bed. He said that she loved it and he has continued to arrange it on their bed every day just as she had done. He told me he always positions the quilt just so and that the label I had sewn on one corner was his guide as to how it should lay. He was so sweet. I do not even remember what quilt I had given her that he was talking about! He said, "The green one, you know?" lol I had no idea. Clearly he loved that quilt as well as the one I gave her before she passed away. And the one I gave him for Christmas will be cherished as well.
You guys all overwhelmingly told me he needed a quilt too, and I am so happy I listened to you! I gave him the red and blue medallion quilt made from Minick and Simpson fabrics. He has a red couch it will look great on.
My sister Andrea posted a picture of the quilt I gave her. I am so happy it goes so well with her decor. It even matches her cat.
It truly is better to give than to receive. I was so happy to do this for my family.
Happy New Year everyone!! We are going to have some fun projects in the new year. I am raring to go!
