At a family gathering last year, my grandson-in-law whispered to my granddaughter, "I think I'm the only family member who hasn't received a quilt". When I was told this I was horrified that I'd forgotten that lovely boy. Guess what he got for Christmas and wrapped himself in the whole evening!

Otherwise, I'm selective who I give quilts to. Immediate family all have at least one. Daughter has a pile and always wants more. Eldest son and wife have one each but they are never displayed or used. They won't get more. I keep making quilts and more quilts. Every now and then someone is in need; a neighbors husband died, another is fighting cancer, one in early stages of Alzheimers. They have all been so appreciative of the gift of a quilt. 

I've had to slow down, waay down, in recent months but have a queen size in progress for middle son's wedding quilt and hope to complete by Christmas. He and his wife both already have lap size quilts I made but they wanted a bed quilt. I'm happy to comply.

My family are blankey babies, all of them. I never seem to be able to keep one for myself. I got a king bed so I need to make myself a king quilt one day soon. I have a queen and raggy quilt for myself, no extras. I do donate several during the year too
