I've been quilting for about 15 and have made dozens of quilts.  I've been giving them to my kids, grandkids, g-grandkids and they're starting to get too many.  I love to quilt, does anyone know what I can do with the overflow???

You can always give them to women's shelters, homeless people trying to get back on their feet, the Red Cross senior centers, veterans as in quilts of valor. Those are the ones I can think of from the top of my head.  Hope this helps.

There are a lot of places that would probably appreciate a donation of quilts-- nursing homes, veterans hospitals, womens shelters.

When I began my reply, there were no others posted. Looks like we all have the same ideas!

how about a orphanage or cancer hospital near you.  Or friends my friends are always wanting me to make them a quilt but I haven't gotten around to all my grandchildren yet.   Still working on it.  I'm sure whatever you do with them they will be please.  We have places around us that help homeless people get work and in a place of their own and they are always asking for furniture and household items and blankets.  What a gift of a homemade quilt.

You might also see if a church would like to auction them off to help further some needs.

I work at a locked/secure treatment facility with teens that have a MH issue. I know we give them a quilt, when they come into the program, to have as their own and can take with them when they graduate.  The quilt means a lot to them and inspires them to lean to make their own. I also teach a sewing class to the residents who have been displaying safe behaviors. How about a group home near you. Often these kids come with few clothes and not much they can call their own. They will be appreciated and cherished.
