Well, I have never yet made a full quilt, just smaller projects like pillows and bags and the like. :)

My quilts: We USE them, as much as possible, to crawl under when it's a bit colder, on our beds, to give away, and as wallhangings that I can change now and then!

Sherry a dit… #

Sometimes I sell them. Sometimes they are for family. We have quilt racks and quilt hangers throughout our home that display the quilts I've kept. I'd love a large armoire though to display future ones in!

Nessa a dit… #

I have only made two, one for the lounge room and it is stored over the back of the couch - but we change the folds regularly, and one for a friend's baby and it is well used so never stored.

I am just now quilting my first quilt, so I don't have very much experience but I love the idea of taking one of those old wooden ladders and laying you quilts on the rungs so they can be seen.

Jessica a dit… #

I've only just finished my first quilt, and that one will be a gift. I have it in my head that I want every bed in my house to be covered with a quilt that I've made. :) I want to make sure everyone I love has one to keep them warm!

I haven't many very many quilts, maybe not even a dozen. About 8 have been given away to a children hospital, several to family members, and there are 2 or 3 still here and we use them when it's cold.

Emily C a dit… #

I have not made enough quilts yet to have a dilemma as to where to display them. I like hanging them on the back of my couch and rotating which one is on display. My next quilt is going to my SIL for her new baby.

I mainly give them as baby gifts but I have made a few for my kids.

Carla a dit… #

Oh, I love French General!! I have quite a collection of quilts too. Many, I give away. I also try to sell the baby ones. The rest get dragged around the house by the children, used to make forts, slept under, laid upon, and sometimes folded up neatly on shelves and in rolled up in baskets :)

Most of my quilts are gifts. Do you believe that I don't have any quilts in my home? I have to solve this!

Lin a dit… #

Some of my quilts have been kept and used - more recently as they have started to stack up they get draped over the back of the sofa to show them off!
But I have also made many quilts to give away - and so long as I know right from the start that they are gifts then I have no problem parting with them when the time comes.

Unless I happen to need a quilt I make them to give away... I certainly need to be very careful with hoarding quilts and hand made items as I live in a small apartment.

I don't make many quilts, so currently can keep them all on the beds in my house. My grandmother had a pile of them folded in a basket in her living room, which people would get out if they were chilly.

Nectarine a dit… #

bonjour, je suis abonnée à ton blog ! mes quilts ont plusieurs destinations!soit je les offre à mon entourage des nièces qui s'installent dans leur appartement par exemple.Des amis m'en achètent pour offrir autour d'eux à Noël (cela leur évite des faire du shopping) . J'en accroche dans mon escalier, j'en stocke beaucoup plié dans l'atelier .Je les expose parfois dans un petit village près de chez moi. Certains partent se faire prendre en photo pour un magazine et puis reviennent ... Mais ils me servent très peu de couvre-lit, leur destination première !

sardine a dit… #

Bon,il faudra que tu m'expliques comment s'inscrire a la newsletter.pour les patch,qui s'accumulent effectivement;soit ils sont chez moi exposés ou bien pliés,soit je les offre,mais en triant parmi les récipiendaires car je peux être tres déçue par les réactions!!

Melanie Sim (Heart and Homemade) a dit… #

I make too many quilts...some have been given away, the rest I fold into thirds and store in the closet. I'd love to have a beautiful antique armoire with a glass front to display them.

Oh but my favourite way to store quilts is on my lounge room floor, where my husband and daughter can play camping, tea parties and peek a boo! I love seeing them enjoy my work!

I most make things to give them away as gifts. I've also made a small wall-hanging for a competition that is now displayed in our kitchen.
Other than that I have a space in my wardrobe where I fold everything up neatly to store it.

jeifner a dit… #

I haven't made a lot of quilts but I have yet to keep one for myself. I'd like to make one for me but it seems there are so many others that need one as well. We use them on our beds. If they are more delicate we use put them on the guest beds for decoration and remove them for sleeping. We also hang them up on the walls like one would with a painting. When not using them we clean them and fold them, if they'll be used in the near future, or we do have acid free archival storage boxes to put them in if we need to.

Sorry I can only comment in English. I haven't made my first quilt yet - I am hoping to make 2 this year. One for me and one for my daughter. I guess once I get into it I will probably do the same thing with quilts as I do with everything else I make - I will give it away to the special people in my life who I love.

Wonderful that you found some French-themed fabric to give away. Love it. I have completed a quilt for each of my children, a few table toppers, and one charity quilt. Small house, so I can't accumulate too many. After I make my own, I will be making one for each of my 3 closest friends.

The ones I've made for my children live in their rooms and the others I have made are piled up in the sewing room (some waiting to be quilted and bound), and two are laid out on the back of my lounges. I have given away lots of baby quilts and many table runners/table toppers.

I don't make quilts, but I guess it's the same principle for any handmade object: What to do with the volume of things you make?

This was the reason I opened my etsy shop. You give lots away to friends and family, but a hobby with materials that must be paid for has to be sustained....

Thanks for the giveaway!

I'm just a beginning sewer and am hoping this is the year to make my first quilt so I don't have that problem yet. However, we seem to be inundated with quilts in our house already. Quite a few I have vacuum sealed in plastic bags. I really should rotate them more often so they get a chance to be used and "breathe"

Rachel a dit… #

I've given most of mine away. A few hang on the walls as art, out of the sun. The rest are made to be used.

When I begin a quilt, I know if it is to be a gift or kept by us. When I'm done, gifts get sent away, and our quilts are kept out, where we'll use them.

I have not complete any quilts to manage, but recently came upon the advice that they need air to breathe and protection from oils. So that a dark, dry closet may be be mostly fine, provided that they are not folded tightly, and that dress boxes work too. Tissue paper may be the best packing material.

My first quilt is nearly finished and is going to my daughter. The one after that, I will have to figure out the same question.

Most often I give them away as gifts.

To be very honest, I don't actually have a quilt made that is /finished/ yet. But once I get the binding on and throw it in the wash, plus make more that are in progress, I think I will be giving all but one or two away to family members for Christmas this year.

My first quilt is in heavy use on the basement couch! The other two are in various stages of completion so I'm not sure where they will live. I think the wonky stars quilt I'm working on will hang on our bedroom wall!

Thakns for the chance!

I give most of my quilts away but also have them folded in a cabinet so I can pet them. Thanks for having this giveaway . I love those French General fabric
