Do you own a fabric quilt? share pictures if you want. Would love to see them.

This is kinda stupid, but I have always always wanted a homemade quilt. My sister got 2. One as a baby(yes it was adult size) and one as a young adult. I however never got one. Its kinda funny that it is a goal of mine to one day afford to get one. (since i don't seem to be as special as my sister and get one made for me for free)

Anyway, I was wondering if I am the only person to never own a handmade quilt. Please tell me I am not.

I have a twin size one my grandmother made me when I was little. DS has a twin size on his bed that I bought on ebay. I have several baby size ones also. 2 made by my grandma and one I bought on ebay.

That is so cool. And so sweet. I love that they have stories. I have always pictured me and my future(and now) dh cuddled up together on the couch watching tv wrapped in a quilt. Or cuddling with my kids and reading a book together wrapped in one. I am currently hunting on ebay.

My mom quilts and has done one for me, each of the boys, finished a quilt of my MILs that was half done for DH and a wedding one. So yeah, we have 5.

DH jokes that the price of having the basement as an IL suite is that she has to make us a quilt a year forever.

Nope, no quilt here. None of the 5 people in my family have one.

I quilt and have tops for all of us that need to be backed and quilted. I gave them as gifts to family members the last couple of years. I love quilting!

Re: Do you own a fabric quilt?

My little ones are each sleeping under a handmade quilt right now. DD1 is sleeping under a quilt her Great-Great Grandma made, and DD2 is sleeping under one her Great-Grandma made. I have several, and I feel blessed to have them. Sometimes I think maybe I should put them away to keep them safe, but I think my loved ones made them to see them used and loved and to keep their family warm, so that's what I do.
