    I use what I do not give away or sell. Nothing like a quilt on a cold New England night.

    I tell quilt receiver to use the quilt. If they put it on a shelf, it will self-destruct in 5 years.

    I use the one on my bed...the rest I have given away..and I do tell everyone I expect them to use them, it really hurts my feelings to see all my hard work sit on a shelf

    I use them when I can but it's kind of hot here in Florida.
    I hope the ones I make and give away are used and loved.
    I know two of my grandkids used theirs so hard they need another one! They were two of my first and were tied. Not sturdy enough for them so now they will get a quilted quilt!

    The quilts here are for using...or I give them away, and I also tell everone they have to use them or otherwise return the quilt.

    In Jan 2010 I will start my Dear jane. I'm not for sure if she will become a using quilt or a show quilt.

    I keep telling hubby that he needs to use the quilts I give him. Nothing needs to be pristine forever.

    My quilts are always used in one fashion or another. If it isn't for the bed then it is for the walls. The house I'm in was built in the early 1950s and the quilts on the walls really help to keep the house warm.

    As for a quilt for my bed, I haven't gotten that far yet. I tend to give 99.9% of everything I make away. I can't seem to help myself. Hubby says everyone else is already taken care of so now it's our turn. Lol. I have a quilt I'm making for our bed but it will be set aside when we climb in at night. Why? Because hubby tends to kick the quilt off the bed and then my dog curls up and sleeps on it. Ack! Dog sheds something horrible & I'd rather it wasn't on my quilt. I brush him every day but he has gorgeous, long hair and it is very pervasive. I may just have to make him his own quilt to sleep on. Hmm, hadn't considered that before.

    I generally give them away but just before (Canadian) Thanksgiving I decided nuts to that and made myself one that I love. I've tried to attach a photo of it in-progress.
