    Put it in writing! I made a list of what I have & designated who should get which machine, what materials, tools, etc. I signed the dcmt and had it witnesed by a friend and put it with my will. My husband knows about the list and has promised to carry out my wishes. If it isn't in writing, the executor of your will has complete discretion over your property.

    I have a dear friend and we quilt and sew and shop and laugh and cry and rely on each other for moral support in all things, quilting and just life. We have both told our husbands that if anything happens to one of us, that the other gets our whole kit and kaboodle of machines, fabric, patterns, UFO's , etc. From there we will keep what we love and can use and share with other quilters, who may be in need of some fabric or notions or even a machine. Both of our minds are at rest, knowing that our treasures will be used and loved once we are gone. And since we know that none of our stuff will be tossed in the trash, we don't mind adding to our collections on a regular basis.

    I would start giving lovely gifts now to family and friends. I have enjoyed giving hand quilted queen size to Mother, brothers. children and Pastor total of 16 and have 3 on my list for future Grandchildren wedding gifts. Donations for fundraiser would be rewarding. It makes a big differences if your family really appreciates quilts.I am lucky enough to have a family member who loves to quilt. A smart decision to plan now.
    Good Luck

    Find someone close to you who loves to sew and give it to them! No sense in giving it to someone who can't or won't use it. They would probably be happy you didn't burden them with the stuff; but the sewer will jump for joy!

    This is such a clever idea. I love it!

    most of my stuff is shared with my sister, but after I nearly died last year, I did put together an "If I die, open this" packet and taped it on the front of the door to my stash. It includes details on what I want done with UFOs and special items in my stash. I go in and update it every 3 or 4 months. I've also gone through all my books and marked with post-its the value. Luckily my mother and sister would know the value on most everything.

    I have told my husband and son to invite all of my quilting friends over, have them grab a bottle of wine out of the fridge on their way upstairs, and "celebrate" all of our quilting memories together. Divide all of my treasures among themselves and depart with a smile on their face.

    I told my husband to have a big Quilting Shed Sale and invite the gals I quilt with to all come out first. But I do need to put that in my will....in fact, I need to update my will! I will leave a "what it's worth" price on my machines, and let him sell the fabric to my buddies for maybe $2 or $3 per yd. Everything at garage sale prices for people I know will use it!
