    I either use most of my quilts to keep warm, or give them away for the same purpose. Personally I wouldn't make a quilt for "show" only during the day and not use it at night!

    I use my quilts and when I give them to people, I tell them if they don't use them I take them back and give them to someone who will use them.

    I use mine and so does everyone I have given one to.
    I use one on the couch and another one stays on my bed all the time.

    My cat like them too.

    The problem is that not every body deserve your work unless you sell them

    I gave most of my quilts away to children, grand-children and I donated some to good causes. I choose one I liked and so did my DH, and we have them on our bed to keep us warm. LOL Liz

    I use what I do not give away or sell. Nothing like a quilt on a cold New England night.

    I tell quilt receiver to use the quilt. If they put it on a shelf, it will self-destruct in 5 years.

    I use them when I can but it's kind of hot here in Florida.
    I hope the ones I make and give away are used and loved.
    I know two of my grandkids used theirs so hard they need another one! They were two of my first and were tied. Not sturdy enough for them so now they will get a quilted quilt!

    The quilts here are for using...or I give them away, and I also tell everone they have to use them or otherwise return the quilt.

    In Jan 2010 I will start my Dear jane. I'm not for sure if she will become a using quilt or a show quilt.

    I keep telling hubby that he needs to use the quilts I give him. Nothing needs to be pristine forever.

    My quilts are always used in one fashion or another. If it isn't for the bed then it is for the walls. The house I'm in was built in the early 1950s and the quilts on the walls really help to keep the house warm.

    As for a quilt for my bed, I haven't gotten that far yet. I tend to give 99.9% of everything I make away. I can't seem to help myself. Hubby says everyone else is already taken care of so now it's our turn. Lol. I have a quilt I'm making for our bed but it will be set aside when we climb in at night. Why? Because hubby tends to kick the quilt off the bed and then my dog curls up and sleeps on it. Ack! Dog sheds something horrible & I'd rather it wasn't on my quilt. I brush him every day but he has gorgeous, long hair and it is very pervasive. I may just have to make him his own quilt to sleep on. Hmm, hadn't considered that before.

    I generally give them away but just before (Canadian) Thanksgiving I decided nuts to that and made myself one that I love. I've tried to attach a photo of it in-progress.

    My quilts are all used. Last night there were 3 on my bed (3 over me and 2 over DH) I can't believe that at 5 this morning he was up and asking if there was another quilt in the bedroom. I sent him over to one of the other rooms. One of them is the regular "bed spread"
    The ones downstairs all get used when there are people around.
    I have been under one or two of them many many hours since I had my surgery last month.

    My family uses all the quilts I have made for them and I always let everyone who gets one as as gift that I want it used. I tell them use it, love it, and if need be wear it out. That way I get to make them another one.

    I have a quilt on my bed at all times. In the summer we usually fold it up and set it aside when we get in bed because it is to warm. In the winter we certainly sleep under one. I have quilts everywhere in my house. Even my cat has his own quilt. The majority of my quilts have been laundered at least once. Some multiple times. The only rooms in my house without at least a wall quilt are the bathrooms.
