Too Many Quilts?

As we were rearranging the living room to make room for the Christmas tree, I started piling all of the quilts in one place.  The stack was growing and growing.  Then I got the quilts out of our bedroom and added them to the stack.   
This stack includes the very first quilt that I made, quilts that I quilted on my domestic machine, and some quilted on my longarm, and even one that needs to be repaired because a special little dog ripped out the stitches with his tiny little puppy nails. This isn't even all of them.  By the time I took this picture, we already had the Christmas quilts back on the couches and a couple others that we like to cozy up with in the morning.  

There's also one hanging on the wall, one draped over the banister, two rolled up waiting for binding, and of course quite a few more in various stages of completion 😄

Do you have a lot of quilts in your home?  Is there any such thing as too many quilts?  Personally, I don't think so.  My dude seems to have a different opinion. 🙄 I'm not quite sure how to prepare him for all of the quilts that will no doubt be added to our home over the next 20+ years.  Any suggestions? 😁

  1. As for preparation... ignorance is bliss. (In other words, just let the quilts sneak up on him.) My DH is in your dude's camp and asked why I didn't get rid of some of the ones hanging around the family room on quilt racks. Personally, I think there's no such thing as too many quilts!!!

  2. I agree! No such thing! We just had this conversation the other day. I tend to make more quilts for other people than I do for myself, but the collection IS starting to grow. It's nowhere NEAR the size of YOUR collection, though!
