What I wouldn't give to have 1 more quilt, throw pillow, cross stitched picture, kitchen apron, tea towel made for me by my Grandmothers. As it stands now I barely have room for my things, but I would figure something out.
I guess its all in what you actually value. One of the afghans my grandma knit for me is quite colorful. Some do not like it at all. My cousins & sisiter all got boring ones knitted in 1 color pallette. Mine is every color of yarn I think she had in her basket at the time. A bit unpredictible just like her 1 granddaughter.:-)

So you know that handmade quilt you spent twenty years making and sealing every stitch with a kiss of love to welcome our fist baby? Yeah... I tossed that to a homeless man down on Fifth.

If that was the history behind the quilt, I would toss it to a homeless man down on Fifth.

Don't make me roll up the newspaper.
It doesn't take twenty years to make a decent quilt.
Don't you have any happiness in your life?

Seriously, I see a well made, hand-crafted quilt as a testimonial to the quantum leap that the eyed needle brought to mankind.
From my understanding it was one of his earliest technological achievements.
I don't have a quilt right now but I plan on making one of my own. They have a pattern called a buzz-saw. It's pretty cool...but you wouldn't know.
