I have made several -- more than several -- maybe 50 baby quilts/lap quilts. I have yet to make a quilt for me :cry:

making one for yourself can be expensive. I have a California King bed! I have one that I finished in 2004 and one is at the long armer's so I will be able to change it up once in a while.

Humm, good question, about 20 I think, and have only kept 1 for my kitty, one for me and one for my hubby.

I have made 10 since end of may '08.

I have no idea how many I've made really. I know that I've given away 5 quillows - one with a pieced top, and kept one for myself. I've given a tree skirt, some wall hangings, a few baby quilts & doll quilts. The quilt I gave to my Mom came back to me when she went into the Alzheimer's care facility. The cat has a small one & I have the first quilt that I ever actually made myself, from design to binding - it's my "couch quilt", the perfect size for snuggling under to watch tv. I have a whole cabinet full of, um, "summer quilts" LOL, all different shapes & sizes. I'm actively working on 4 quilts right now - the 'wedding quilt' (a single Irish Chain), one for quilt class that will actually be 2 different quilts when done (Bamboo & Windmills?), a wonky 9-patch by Lyn Mann (was going to philanthropy, decided to give it to great nephew for Xmas instead) & an 'artsy' Halloween wall hanging for a friend. Whew! I'm tired now, I think I need to go lie down for a while.... :wink:

i have made 2 that i kept for myself (lap quilts) and a few wall hangings for the house, my kids each have a quilt I made them. I have given away about 10-12 lap to large twin sized quilts. Plus I have made a few tote bags, I think 4, I donated 2 to a silent auction and kept the other ones! The next two actual quilts on my list of projects are to stay in my house and the wallhangings etc are all planned to stay at my house too!

I've never kept count but I think it's about 20-25. I've only made one for myself and that's a Christmas themed lap quilt that only comes out for a few weeks each year. DH keeps asking me when I'm going to make one for our bed. Probably never.

I started quilting in earnest in Dec 1999. I made 3 bed quilts and several wall hangings before then. Since then I have made about 100 quilts and wall hangings. I mostly make snuggle size quilts and wall hangings. I also have about 12 UFO and WIPs right now.

First quilt I ever made was a sampler queen size...ended up being a bit wonky but I gave it to an older brother whom I adore...
After that I made a beautiful quilt for a friend, no pic and then a couple of easy baby quilts.
Finally started taking pictures...because I gave them all away.
I gave some to my nieces and nephews...nothing fancy as they were young, just something for them and my sis wouldn't even use them.
I have given most of all I make away...to family and friends...seems one I am working on as a UFO finds a person to whom it should go to...
Right now I have seven or eight that I have kept that are finished. This doesn't include table runners nor mats...
I have several works in progress or UFOs....not sure what will happen to those...
I love to quilt and machine embroider...I love fabric...
