I had a little different situation. My DH bought a "quilt bed in a bag" because it saved me lots of time instead of making a quilt and the price was the same as the fabric. I was supportive by letting him "feel" the difference in the quality of the fabric. Then I asked him was I suppose to mow his yard while he played golf with all my free time. He looked at his purchase and said "I need to return this to the store".
you finally got him where it hurts good got you snf you hsve a wise husband pgmb
