    No limit in our guild and I'm GLAD! I love to see the creativity, color combinations, patterns, and just pure hard work that our members have done. Show 'em all!

    I agree Tartan, I love to see as many as possible. I would never think of it as "hogging" the guilds time, that's what we're all about!

    I would first tell them that they were going for charity and then show them all. Maybe you will inspire some of the members to make a quilt for charity.

    I would show all 4. I don't think you can show too many quilts at a guild meeting. I love seeing them all.

    My guild doesn't have a limit and I love show and tell so the more the better. We only do show and tell at alternate meetings.

    I would show them all, as everyone enjoys other quilts, and it inspires me, and helps with ideas.

    If I had four quilts I wanted to show, I'd show them.. We are casual and enjoy seeing what others are doing. If I felt like that might be a bit much, then I'd ask some of my friends to help me my holding up three of them at the same time.. After I held the one I wanted to show most I would simply bundle it in my arms and say a word or two about the others being held.. I don't think anyone would think that was over the top. (and if they did, oh well, you can't please everyone every time!)

    I go to a monthly meeting at our local quilt shop and we do show and tell first. That is where you get so many ideas. Not all of it is quilts. It can be anything that we have made in the last month.

    I have taken up to 9 quilts at a time to share with my fellow guild members - sometimes I don't have any no one seems to mind.
    A bed without a quilt is like the night sky without stars.

    Take them all and ask if they want to see all of them.

    I prefer one per person for quilts. sometimes we show two or three smaller projects. showing takes up a lot of time.

    The guild I belong to was getting way out of hand; some people were showing 7-10 items each. So, what they decided to do is place all the charity quilts in the back of the meeting room; they were hung over a coat rack and you could see most of each one. They then designated the "show and tell" for other items with no limit on them. I find it much more enjoyable since they switched to this method. Too many of them were looking too much alike and the time for our speaker was being infringed on.

    We have show and tell at the end of each monthly meeting so that's frequent enough and probably why I don't recall anyone showing more than one or two at a time.

    You could also ask the organizers if four are too many and/or maybe save one for next meeting.

    From Don-I don't think any guild has a limit for show, and tell. There was a lady in our guild at 1 time, would show any where from 6 - 10. And sometime, that was every month. She didn't have to do house cleaning, and cook meals. It was all done for her. So she spent her time making quilts.

    I could have a quilt show all night at guile if they would allow it. I say the more the merrier but alas, I don't rule the world!

    Speak to the person in charge of S&T and ask them if it would be okay and usually every one is very agreeable to see a few more quilts. They could also be laid out before the meeting starts when everyone is arriving so all could see.

    We have areas around the room where extra projects can be displayed before, during and after the meeting. I would pick the two best to share and display the others to be seen and people can ask you about them separately if they wish.

    Well, I am still reading all these messages, and I appreciate all the advice. As far as I know, there is no rule about how many quilts that can be shared at my guild meeting, and I know that others have shown four or more...I just don't want to be rude and hog the floor.

    My current thinking is to show all four, very very quickly. I may change my mind when I am there, but the three charity quilts are aimed at Moore, OK, for victims of the tornado and I probably won't have them for the next Show and Tell. I know I will take all four, and I will show them if it "feels right"...meaning the line isn't too long.

    Again, thanks for all the comments.

    Our monthly meetings are 2 hours long and people show as many as they have to show. We have over 300 members with two meetings on that day. One in afternoon and one at night. You made them, your proud of them, show them off.

    Show and Tell is my favorite portion of our guild meeting. I love to see what everyone has made. I say, show them all. Unless time is limited and there are a lot of people still wanting to share - then you may have to reduce the number. I would ask a friend to help you so it won't take as long. How about pictures here to share with us??????? We would love to see them as well
