    My DH says I can't make a quilt unless I have a good home for it. Little does he know that we have a wonderful home. I just pull them out at different times and say "Oh, this old thing."

    Around 20 that can be seen, from miniature to K size.Maybe another 12 put away ,plus a short stack of UFOs.I switch them around according to seasons & always use 4-5 table runners.

    Quilts large and small, wallhangings, dolls quilts and tablerunners - I would have over 200. I never give any away to family or friends but I do quilts for donation to charities quite often.

    Is there such a thing as too many?

    I have only 4 out of the many I have made. But, all my friends and family have my quilts and love them, so I am happy.

    Oh my, what a sad way to loose your quilts. Good luck on your new quilt making.

    I have 10, excluding miniature ones. Most of mine go out as fast as I can make them (and that's slow!) If you're counting ones that aren't quite finished yet.. then probably about 25. :D

    That is about what I have --that inlcudes 6/7that are displayed together in a quilt case. But they are on chairs, table tops, walls, windows, etc. etc. As I'm writing this I can think of 7 or 8 more! I'm not at home but just thinking about them in my mind. I have given away many many quilts. I wonder when my kids are going to "revolt" and tell me enough is enough, but I'm planning on another Christmas of giving quilts probably next year.

    I have 5 of my quilts in my home...all the rest of the 100 have gone as gifts or as donations, and some I have sold. Some of them I wish I had kept, but I am sure they are being loved where they are. I am on a streak now making some to keep...I have 3 in the works that will stay home with me and DH.

    It is a very good feeling to give a quilt away as it makes someone feel very very special.

    ok, on display in my home, in use in my home or stored in my home? I have 2 or 3 on display, 3 or 4 in use and about 56 (lap, baby, wall hangings, table runners, etc) in a big wooden chest the DH made for me.

    Just refolded and changed the quilts in my house.. 44. too many perhaps.. it was a lot of work to get them all refolded and moved about and put away.

    I love them all, use them all.. We sleep under them, they are on the backs of the couchs, in the chairs, hanging on the stairs, I have quilts everywhere.. no need for anyone to be chilly here!!

    I have the first one I made at the only class I took but it's just a top, another small OBW and the one I'm working on currently for my niece. Also a bunch of appliqued animal squares which I'm not sure what I'll do with.
