    Just curious...

    Have you kept most of the quilts you've made? Or do you sew them mostly for gifts?

    I have small wall hangings in the house, but have given away most of what I made. One of these days I will make a quilt for my own bed! :lol:

    I only have one that I have kept. Most of mine are more throws than quilts as i like the piecing but not so good with the quilting. I am making one all for me right now out of the scraps from throws made for my children. I love making something specific for people I love.

    Have made for us and for others. i like to keep them mostly, I stress over them to much when they are to be given away.

    We have 6 grown children, 7 grandkids, many extended family. I make quilts for them all and they want more. I do make some for us too. If I'm attached to a finished quilt I keep it for awhile then pass it on.

    I'd say I keep about half of what I make. I gift or sell the others.

    most of what i make goes to charitable organizations. it's a lot of fun for me to build up a pile and then find someplace that needs them. i have also sold some and made some as gifts for friends and family. i have kept only a very few for my own house. i have several "planned" for me but somehow rarely get around to doing them. :lol:
