You all know I've been having quilts quilted to give as Christmas gifts to my family this Christmas. My brother in law who lost his wife just a year and a half ago was posing a gift giving dilemma for me. Just before my sister passed away I gave her a beautiful quilt, which hopefully he is enjoying. I had made it thinking it would be perfect for their dark red living room couch, which is where I think he is using it. So, did I want to give him another quilt so soon after the last one? He's a guy after all, and there is a limit to what a man can think of to do with quilts all over the place, right?
I have a full sized quilt I could totally give him for Christmas, but I am thinking he probably doesn't need another one right now. But how about a small table topper? It would go with the quilt I gave him recently and could be used on the coffee table, under a lamp or as a mat for a candle or vase of flowers. If he even uses candles or has vases of flowers. At any rate, I am thinking I am going to whip up this little quilt and give it to him instead of a full sized one. I could present it with a little basket to set on it that he could keep his tv remotes in or something.
Or do you think I should just give him a full bed sized quilt like I am giving everyone else? I don't want him to feel slighted, but I also don't want him to have the "What on earth am I going to do with this?" reaction. Do any of you give your quilts to men? What do you think I should do?
