Our quilting group lost a dear quilting friend early this summer, and now her dh has donated all her fabric, tools, rulers, boards, etc. to our group. Any ideas on how to fairly distribute, sell to, auction, or donate all her stuff, equally, to our quilting group? We also want to create a memorial of some type in her name, looking for great ideas!

By lottery? You could lay everything out and call people in by number to look around and take a certain number of items.

Ahh, sorry to hear this Donna. Thoughts and prayers to her DH and to you and your group. Why not make a quilt with a photo of her, with her fabric and tools and give to hubby? or hang at your gatherings?? Im sure she would love that. So sad. {{{HUGS}}}

Not sure the extent of her things, but perhaps your group could use some of these things and then donate to a school or something like that.

Thinking of you All! Sue

Maybe make a few quilts from her stash, using her supplies, and donate them to terminally ill patients at your local hospital? Or maybe another charity she liked?

You could make a brown paper bag of items, enough so that each person would get one. Number each bag and have coresponding numbers in a basket. Each member draws a number and gets the bag with the same number.
Another idea would have a silent action and the money would go toward whatever you all decide to do to in her memory.
Each member make a block, using this material, put them into a quilt for husband.

We have three guild members picked randomly by the President to sort and price all the guild donations. Then the items are put out for sale at the meeting.

So sorry for your.
Maybe all of you could make her husband a quilt out of some of her fabric. Then make quilts for charity.

So sad to loose a friend.
What about if all members agree, write down their sugestions and then draw one or even the top five secret votes and then have every one vote from the five suggestions. This could get sticky if not handled right, I have seen families seperated for much less.
