    I live in Tucson AZ. I take the comforter off my bed from April until Oct. I leave a quilt on there. Don't make it with super heavy material, but I much prefer having a lightweight quilt on my bed rather than the comforter.

    Give them the quilts! There is NEVER a time when giving a quilt is not appropriate, regardless of the weather. It is quite warm where we live just now and we're still sleeping under our quilts for at least part of the night. Go for it!

    Nothing says I care about you like a quilt. It is alway a good time to give a gift made with love.

    BE generous lol and give them one each now and one for Christmas. I don't think there is any season that isn't a quilt season. It's the thought and love behind it, not the weather. The children will love them I'm sure and the quilts may make them feel like they really belong more. Go For it.

    I shouldn't worry - I live in one of the driest hottest countries in the world and sleep under my quilt all year round. If they are lined with wool they are good insulators in any weather. Glad to hear you have a nice purpose for making and giving.

    Oh, quilts are for anytime. They will love & appreciate them so much. I sleep with one because I am always cold.

    You are giving love, which sometimes translates into warmth, also. Kids love their very own quilts. They are good for forts, swiming blankets, cuddles for sleeping. Sometimes they are used for warmth of the body, not of the heart. Go for it.
