    I live in Tucson AZ. I take the comforter off my bed from April until Oct. I leave a quilt on there. Don't make it with super heavy material, but I much prefer having a lightweight quilt on my bed rather than the comforter.

    Give them the quilts! There is NEVER a time when giving a quilt is not appropriate, regardless of the weather. It is quite warm where we live just now and we're still sleeping under our quilts for at least part of the night. Go for it!

    Nothing says I care about you like a quilt. It is alway a good time to give a gift made with love.

    BE generous lol and give them one each now and one for Christmas. I don't think there is any season that isn't a quilt season. It's the thought and love behind it, not the weather. The children will love them I'm sure and the quilts may make them feel like they really belong more. Go For it.

    I shouldn't worry - I live in one of the driest hottest countries in the world and sleep under my quilt all year round. If they are lined with wool they are good insulators in any weather. Glad to hear you have a nice purpose for making and giving.

    Oh, quilts are for anytime. They will love & appreciate them so much. I sleep with one because I am always cold.

    You are giving love, which sometimes translates into warmth, also. Kids love their very own quilts. They are good for forts, swiming blankets, cuddles for sleeping. Sometimes they are used for warmth of the body, not of the heart. Go for it.

    Get stitchin, girlfriend!
    I agree! I live in SC and it's about 100 deg right now and I slept under 2 quilts last night. Our air was also on 77 but hubby keeps the fan on and I would be too cold without my 2 quilts. I also grew up with air and always had blankets so I can't ever sleep without a nice quilt.

    Quilts can be given anytime. My Grandma gave me a quilt when I was small and I used it for forts over a card table and it went everywhere with me. Glenn

    I recently made a quilt for my 18 y.o. granddaughter who has now gone overseas to Cambodia for a few years doing volunteer work. She made the request, as she wanted something to remind her of home. The temp there is always in the 30 - 40 deg celcius. She turns the fan on full blast so that she can use it!!

I am making the children eachtheir own little quilt and possibly a pillow case to match.

    Problem is, the weather here will be hitting 90-100 degrees soon. Probably won't be much of a need for quilts to stay warm! (Duh). Would it be silly to give them to the children now or should I wait until cooler weather? Don't want to look like I'm just a silly ol' grandma, but would like to help them out.

    Guess after all this, my question is.....is there a quilt giving season?

    Well if it is too hot to lay under it, it is always great to lay on top of it. Now with the airconditioning, I use quilts year around. I would say give it.

    I made my grandson in North Carolina a quilt for napping and I used cotton knit fabric ( I call it T-shirt knit) instead of batting.
