    It's gorgeous!! All that I could muster for my first quilt was a bunch of 6 inch blocks! And after 3 years of quilting, triangles intimidate me!

    I just love your quilt and hand made too, yes hand made is very time consuming but I believe every stitch is stitched with Love and your quilt shows that so very much. It is pieced so well, wonderful choice of color that sets a tranquil tone,, and the quilting is most superb. You are so much a better person than I, regarding your Aunt. Perhaps your wonderful quilting and kindness will rub off on me.
    Create something beautiful from scraps.

    What a beautiful quilt!! I'm sure your son will love it. With regards to your aunt, I think many older people become so negative because of how our society treats them, and the attitudes that are subtly and often blatantly shown. It's hard to stay positive I think. I know I have determined to consciously strive to stay positive as I age. Losing abilities is depressing and scary, I hope you can keep that perspective and remind yourself her remarks have very little to do with you and everything to do with her view of her world.

    Beautiful quilt. Your son will feel the love each time he uses it!
    Love that it's all handquilted.

    Agree with Cybrarian, as some people age, they become angry that they can't do what they used to. It's only natural to take out that flustration on those closest. Love her anyway. AND keep quilting!
