What do you do with a "Tis the Season" quilt?

We have family visiting this weekend and I couldn't resist showing you what we are doing with the finished quilts.

Snuggle with your baby

Snuggle with your niece
I don't imagine they will be put on any walls or tables here. They will be used as quilts even when Christmas means it is summer!

Mine is much too small for this but I plan to drape it over a chair or the sofa during the holidays.
