Crafty Comment Karma and a Poll About What You Do with Your Quilts

Written by Laura Chaney, daughter

Last week we asked: "How do you share your creative work online?"

Last week responses brought such a big smile to my face. So exciting to see that so many readers share fruits of their labor somewhere on the interwebs. I was a little bit surprised that Flickr didn't have a higher number, but perhaps the days of Flickr have come and gone, and now people have moved onto Instagram.

And speaking of sharing sure to link up at the end of this post!

This week we're asking: "What do you do with your quilts when they're finished?"

Although it might not seems like it from the many works in progress that both Mom and I have going, we DO occasionally finish a quilt. Usually by that point we've decided WHAT will be done with the finished quilt, and it's generally keeping it or giving it to a friend or family member. Sometimes quilts are started with the intended recipient, but sometimes a quilt just ends up being the perfect fit for that person. 

This week we're asking "What do YOU do with your quilts when they're finished?" Keep them? Sell them? Give them away? Even if you sometimes do all of these, choose the answer that you most often do. 

What do you do with your quilts when they're finished?

Keep them for yourself
Give them to a friend or family member
Sell them
Give them to charity
Other (tell us what in the comments)

And now, on to the link-up! 

Not linking up? That's ok! Take a few minutes to check out what other people are linking up this week and spread some good Karma by visiting and commenting on their posts. Comments make a bloggers day!

Crafty Comment Karma


  1. I've added your link-up party to the Link Parties page on my blog and will link up as I can. Thanks for hosting.

  2. I am surprised not as many use Flickr now too, especially now that it's free to use. I haven't tried Instagram because I only just joined Facebook this year to belong to some groups. It takes soooo much time to share with so many online formats. I think blogs are becoming more and more obsolete. So many bloggers I follow rarely post
    anymore. You cannot write a lot on Instagram, so I suppose people prefer looking at photos and they can do that faster and see more by doing Instagam. I tried signing up for Instagram just to look at others and for some reason when I try to log in it won't let me and says that name has been taken, but won't log me in. Too much of a pain to deal with trying to figure it out now.

    I am probably evenly split with making for friends/family and keeping quilts I make.

  3. Right now all my quilts go to Project Linus. In the past I kept some and some to friends and family.
