    Make sure to show us that door when you get it finished! =)

    I totally agree with the previous comments. I would never tell someone that they have too many quilts or whatever in -their homes.

    Do what is right for yourself! I had a neighbor come into my house (when I was in my blue phase of painting, now do yellow) and said "I think you can overdo blue!" How rude!
    I loved my blue then and was very happy in my blue house. That neighbor was rarely invited in for a visit. Never forgot the comment but I enjoyed my blue,did what felt right for me.

    With the exception of garden gnomes, I agree with this comment. Those gnomes are just creepy and a gang of them is down right terrifying. I wouldn't make any comments in front of them, though. They have big ears! I'd just get the he-- out and never go back--LOL.

    and with quilts...you just throw them in the washer. With trinkets...dust and clutter, and what a pain to dust them.

    Honest and open communication is much lauded...however, many it appears take this too literally. Since when has it ever been manners to make rude remarks about the decor/style of a home you have been invited into? It would be sad indeed if everyone had a home that looked like a store catalogue.

    I love quilts and I love looking at them. I think you should decorate your house in a way that make you happy and not worry about what others think.

    Too many quilts?

    Is there an amount that is too many?

    How strange, either she didn't quilt herself, or wanted one of them to take home, or was jealous of your talent, or suddenly remembered how bleak her own home was without quilts in it.

    Now that I think about it, some folks seen to be a trifle nervous about my dear George, a 5 foot high Nutcracker who holds a tray for snacks. And Pete, and Sam and Gloria, and a few of the other 50 or so Nuts I have in my house from 2 inches high to George. But they are helpful, brightly colored and cheerful, plus, George has never dropped an appetizer in his life!!

    It's your home and your space. As long as you walk in and love it, then that's what counts. Enjoy your work!!!!

    My mom has about 30 quilts hanging on racks in her bedroom and they look really nice...that is unless you ask my father. He constantly asks her when she's going to get rid of them and then the fighting begins...LOL

    I think it's a matter of taste. It's your home.

    There is no such thing as too many, it's all a matter of your opinion. What you like!

    I agree with the well spoken words.

    You can never have too many quilts. If you like them, enjoy looking at them and they make you happy, add as many as you can fit in your home!

    Sounds like you were describing my house. My friends who visit say it looks like a quilt retreat. LOL. I have them on beds, on walls, on racks, on wall display, in my china hutch, every where. Never too many.

Is this too much? I know people that do ceramics and have figurines all over the place. A relative said, my house looks to quilty! I just said, I love my quilts and like to look at them. Just curious what others think.
    Here is my answer to too much of anything: IT IS MY HOUE; I LIVE IN IT; I WILL PUT OUT OR UP, ANYTHING THAT I WANT TO LOOK AT; APPRECIATE; REMEMBER, ETC. Do as you wish and remember the tale of the father, son and donkey. Going to market they were all walking; first person to go past told the child he should be riding - too young to walk that far. Second person along shamed the boy and said the father should be riding - he was older and couldn't walk as well. Third person came along and told them both they should be carrying the donkey. When they arrived in town; everyone laughed to see them carrying a donkey when they could have both ridden it in.
    SEE WHAT I MEAN??? YOU CAN'T PLEASE EVERYONE, SO PLEASE YOURSELF.

    I guess all my relatives are afraid of me. LOL No one ever says anything about how many quilts I have out. The grands and great grands love to drag them around and snuggle with them.

    The way I look at it, until I run out of space and therefore using them to line the driveway, I'll display as many as I want. I love looking at my quilts and the memories attached with each one of them. Everyone of them has a story to tell. Perhaps your relative is jealous?
