    I have so many quilts made that I have bought those plastic zippered bags to store them in. My closet is filling fast. I did sell one the other day. Hurray! But, I think I may need to get a bigger closet. I've gifted a few and donated one to raise money for a sick child. So, what do you do with all the quilts you make?

    I have given away all but one wall hanging, the only wall hanging I've ever made. All of the rest were bed sized.

    I don't have any. I usually make them for gifts with the recipient in mind, or baby quilts to donate. My neices and nephews keep getting married or have babies so they keep me busy! I bought the fabric for a quilt for my bed and now one of my neices announced she is engaged!

    Including wallhangings I have at least 26. I have 7 hanging up in the house & several that I rotate seasonally. I have 7 or 8 bed sized & the rest are lap sized.

    I only have one. Typically while I am working on one , someone comments on it , or I start to thinking it would be nice to give to .... so I send them off to live with someone else. I have no attachment to them once they are done. For me it was the process, so when its done, it needs to go.

    i sell mine, i have only kept 1 quilt in 8 years of quilting and thats only because it was a gift i gave to DH.

    i can't imagine keeping everything, the costs of fabric, batting, notions, sewing machine, long arm is so expensive and to never get any of that money back would make buying very difficult.

    i have no problem buying things for quilting because its my business (my only source of income) and i'll make my money back plus some.

    None. Mine have all been either for charity or gifts, but am in the process of finally getting to something for ME though. LOL
