    Have you ever made a quilt for someone specific and once you had it finished you didn't want to part with it?
    The last two quilts I have made I really wanted to keep but had already promised them to others.

    totally, just finished up one for my bff. totally customized for her all the way down to having her kids hand prints on it and I feel like I'm giving up my first born.

    Even still, I can't wait to send her home to her rightful owner.

    Hard work, even done willingly and with love creates attachment. Just keep reminding yourself that you've given them a priceless gift--a part of yourself. If they are commissions, well, aside from payment it's great to know if you love it you have done a great job in completing your commission!

    I seem to always give away things I make. I really love making things for people but sometimes I wish I would do something special that I would keep.

    I am almost done with a quilt top called french Knot. I can't wait to finish and put it on my bed.

    Has just happened to me. Finally finished a couple UFO's and now don't want to send them off. After guild meeting tomorrow, I'm going to bite the bullet and ship them off :(

    Absolutely. I made a quilt of valor that I loved, but I knew it was going to a good cause. So I put it in a box with no regrets.

    Yes, but I gave it to them anyway.
