    Both, most are used and abused, washed and dried and loved again.

    Ours are used. I stack the wall hangings and rotate them.

    Used by myself or others who I have given them to as gifts.

    Quilts, like books, should be used and worn! There are cases where they should be stacked when they are treasured and worn. But mostly used.

    I made my sister a quilt. One day, when I went to visit, she apologized for the stain she couldn't get out. It was cough syrup. Her kids were fighting over who got to use the quilt because they were both sick. They thought since it was made by their Aunt, it had more healing powers. So they were fighting over the quilt and spilled the cough syrup. That's the best stain ever!
    One yard of fabric, like one cookie, is never enough!

    We use our quilts unless it it a wall hanging!

    Well, I only have so many beds so, some are used a lot and the others are stacked. And then when laundry needs doing I pull the "dirty" ones off the bed and put on fresh ones from the stack. I guess I am a rotater.

    Except for the vintage ones from my grandmother and great-grandmother, I use them.

    I have only made quilts for gifts so far so they are for sure used. My Grandson's is starting to look like and old dishrag. Guess the boy needs a new one.

    Gracious I am so stoked that I won! Thank-you!

    As for my answer, I am still just beginning my journey of lifelong quilting. So far I have one that I use as a couch blanket, and one two that I gave away. My plan is to have one for every season for my couch blanket. I also have plans on making one for each of my future children to use on their beds. I have every intention of using them.
