    My niece is pregnant again. Seems every 2 years or just about she has another baby. She didn't mention it to me, nor did my sister. I found out through her facebook telling her friends "I'm preggers and loving it"
    Well I made baby quilts for the 1st 2, but, I told my DH my heart was not into making anymore. What if she continues having kids?? I would have to keep making baby quilts???
    Her and her boyfriend both live with my sister, and I only hear from my sister if there is a problem of some kind. Same with my niece.
    I don't care how many children they have...but since I made 2, I felt obligated to make another. My DH told me, why not just get something small.
    Do you think I should just get something small??

    If you feel compelled, then go and buy a pre-quilted baby panel and all you have to do is bind it. I think they cost about $10 for a panel here and you can even go with pre-made binding, too. Should probably take two packages of the pre-made binding. It should be a fast project and not much work involved.

    I can relate! I only hear from my nieces when they think they deserve presents. I can't get excited when they choose to have babies out of wedlock. I just feel bad for the babies as I know the fathers will not be around long.

    I decided this year that I absolutely will no longer feel obligated to buy gifts. My family lives within 20 miles and no one talks to me unless it's go handle a problem they can't resolve. I haven't heard from any of them in months and this year I sent no gifts, cards, etc. except to my daughter and son in law who are staying with me while my daughter looks for a job. I had to ask myself - when did giving gifts become a requirement?

    you know- a gift should come from the heart- and be something you want to give- if it's not heart felt why would you bother?
    quilting is a wonderful hobby and most of us make quilts to give away- but only to those we want to give them to.

    If you really must make her something do like I do when I really don't want to make a baby quilt for the person. Buy a pre-quilted panel and some binding. You can get it over quickly. I have nephews (so far) who that is the only time we hear from them.
