Thank you all for your thoughtful and interesting comments. I have a small family that already has been given quilts so I can’t really heap more on them, especially as they 13,000miles away and postage costs between of $50 and $85!. I don’t have a huge number myself but I dislike the idea of them sitting in a pile waiting to be used. I make them because I want them to be used.
I also don’t have much available wall space to display them which is why I asked what you do with yours.
Many of you spoke of giving them to charity which is a wonderful idea for machine-made quilts but I don’t think it’s a good idea for hand-made quilts. I have toyed with the idea of selling my quilts to raise funds for research into Juvenile Diabetes and I may still do this. I’m investigating the logistics of doing so.
Anyway, thank you for joining in the conversation. I always enjoy reading your thoughts.
