So this summer I found myself wondering why I wasn’t spending much time at my sewing machine. Why is my drive to make quilts so low right now. I always have a quilt project on the go and can’t wait to finished it. I’m one of those rare ‘start to finish’ quilters that doesn’t have a ton of UFO’s but what I do have is a lot of finished quilts! I have more than anyone would ever need! So I was curious to see how many quilts I have around the house and I’m just talking bed quilts not wall hangings. So I went room to room, checked all the closets and Rubbermaid boxes, found all the living-room cuddle quilts as well as the ones on my display ladder and this is what I found.
In total 40 bed sized quilts in my house, and that doesn’t include the baby quilts I made my boys which is what got me started in the first place! A lot have been used and love and about 10 are new and have been sitting in a closet waiting to find the right home. I sent one quilt home with my sister this week as I prefer to gift them then sell them but I think that might have to change. I have some really nice quilts that I loved making but really I do not need them! Why is it so easy to give them away but not sell? I have gifted many quilts and even donated a few to charities so I might do more of that. How many quilts do you have in your house! Is this normal? I have even more quilts scatters at different quilt shops on display and some with a few sale tags so I am trying to control this issue! So maybe that is why I don’t have the drive to make more right now, I have too many.
