I have been reading the thread Thank you for my gift, would you make me another....and actually think I read every single reply.
Now this is almost the same thing, but thought I would start a new thread. A family member just bought land and had a nice log cabin built...it is beautiful. Anyway, they had us come out to see it. I cannot remember the words, but the wife told me if I had a quilt that I didn't want, she would love to have it...I didn't say much if anything the first time. I was flabbergasted that someone had the nerve to ask for a quilt. Since then it has been mentioned two or three times.
I so wish I had thought of some of the replies others used....I really liked
1. What is wrong with just saying 'no.'
2. I have so many projects already planned but I will put you on the list...but you go to the bottom
3. Having her go with me to buy the fabric, batting, thread. I honestly doubt she would spend that much money...too used to buying those made in China.
I just so wish I had thought of these answers...and I don't know why I didn't think to tell her there are all kinds of how to videos and books to read. She doesn't work...has never worked a job as far as a know. There is no reason she can't make one. She can sew and make clothes...she could easily learn how to quilt.
The last time she mentioned it, she was even talking about a rag quilt...I said I might when I got done with some projects I needed to get done. But I am really regretting saying I might do it.
