When I give a quilt as a gift, I deliver it in a photo box or tote bag that matches the occasion or the quilt. I use a selvage from the project for the ribbon. If I can't find a suitable box or tote, I select a Christmas ornament that matches the quilt. I like to think that the recipients will think of the love that went into their quilts when they are arranging their photos, shopping, or decorating for the holidays.
