Default quilted items - other than "blankets"

sometimes i want to "quilt" - but not
"make a quilt"

i have read about quilted petticoats. i wonder if any men's undergarments were quilted?

do you consider making a potholder to be "quilting"?

the vera bradley type bags usually are made of quilted fabrics - some placemats - some appliance covers-

what have you made that was quilted but was not "a quilt"?

Knights wore quilted pads under their chain mail and armour. I have done quilted pillows, quilted replacement knee pads on my sons pants when he was little, quilted jewelry roll up, quilted remote pocket for over the chair arm, quilted bed jacket for my Mom , quilted machine cover etc. etc.......

I've quilted lots of small zippered bags, neck scarfs, potholders (yes, I consider making a potholder to be quilting), table runners, tote bags, back packs....and the list goes on. I consider anything that is layered & then stitched to hold it all together to be quilting. Then, there is the process of quilting for me where I make quilts blocks for charity. Even though I don't do the actual final quilting of the quilt, I consider myself a piece of the process that goes into making the quilt.

Shoe bag, jewelry bag, potholders, jacket, mittens, pillow covers....but I DO consider anything quilted to be a quilt even if it’s not quilt shaped (but that’s just me)

Some times I just make practice pieces.

Recently from a thread here I learned about using adding machine tape as a base. I had just gotten a bag of small scraps, much smaller than what I would usually use but perfect for this concept. You just sew on a foundation and make a long length of string fabric, then you can decide what to do with it later

I'm going to make myself some Kuspuks, Innuit summer parkas, to wear around the house. Nice tunic length (can wear with leggings or over pants) and has pockets, and I grew up in Alaska. Typically they have trims, but I think I might also make some panels of quilted fabrics, sort of combining the Seminole patterns with the Arctic.

I have made a holder for my flash drives, and a little bag for my journal. I quilted the outline of a dolphin on the sides of the bag.

I've quilted fabric for jackets, toilet seat covers, cushion seats, upholstery fabric for my dining chairs. Also quilted the fabric for my folding stool as well as my folding chairs and patio chair cushions with ties. If it can be quilted, I do it.
