    I have given all my quilts as gifts. I found some boxes but that gets expensive so my new way is to just wrap them in a pretty ribbon. Does anybody have any other ideas?

    I like your idea. They look very pretty. I've always made a pillow case from the same or co-ordinating fabric to use as a gift or storage bag.

    I like your idea too. More and more when I wrap presents, I like to use tissue paper, white or colored, usually two layers, with some curly ribbon. I don't like all the waste that goes along with regular gift wrap. We can't recycle it here. Unfortunately, I can only find those small sheets (trifolded) of tissue. I like the way the present kind of peeks thru the opaque tissue wrap.

    Very nice. I just gave my grandson his college fleece quilt/blanket. I was going to make a pillowcase, since I only had enough fabric for one. Instead I made it into a laundry bag that I used as a gift bag. Made a gift tag on the embroidery machine. He was thrilled to death. But I forgot to take a picture of it before I gifted it.

    That is a great idea. I like it. Yes boxes can be expensive and especially if you have to mail it to some one. A couple of yesrs ago we gave Mom a 19" flat screen tv for her bedroom for her birthday and we didn't have any wrapping paper so I knew she needed a certain type of fabric and I had a few yards of fabric so we wrapped the tv in the fabric! So it was like 2 gifts in one type of thing. Now that wasd pretty cleaver too. Have a great dsay, Huggies, Fay

    Your pretty ribbons give the quilts such a festive look. Last quilt I made was for DGD who lives in CA. Wrapped it in double layers of colored tissue paper and tied it with curly ribbons and DS#3, her Dad, stuffed it into his suitcase on his last visit to us. Mailing it would have been expensive and, anyway, I didn't have a box or plastic envelope large enough for mailing. Saved time and money and DGD got her quilt ASAP. May in Jersey

    Very pretty way to wrap, now can we see the beautiful quilts that are wrapped? From my little view, they look gorgeous!

    Such a nice idea to wrap the quilt with pretty ribbon. Lets the quilt itself be the wrapping paper.

    I made a quilt for my niece earlier this year for her baby shower. I made a gift bag out of left over fabric from the quilt. It served as a gift bag, can be used as a storage bag, or she could use it as a tote if she wanted to. Here's a picture.

    When we gifted quilts to the nieces and nephews for Christmas, we made matching pillowcases and tucked the quilt (top) into the case. They got to keep the pillow and pillowcase while we finish the quilts. I think they all liked it.
