I don't know what you would call it. I am almost done with the quilt I am making for my niece. I have 2 sisters. I asked the one sister and she was tickled with the idea I thought enough to make her a quilt. She asked if I needed anything towards making it, I told her no. I am making it because I love you. I asked colors etc and told her I would get back to her.
Sis 2. I said to her, that I am going to make quilts for only family and I would love to make her a quilt if she wanted one. She said sure, how long is it going to take? I said I can't put a time on it, it's lots of work and hours. I told her I have some things on my list to make for others and to think of colors, things etc. She called back we talked, she said well, I like country, but, her boyfriend likes skulls, crossbones, things like that, could you make it half and half. Yikes!! I told her I did not think so, but, I could make you a single quilt country and him one with skulls if I could find them. She then said no, how bout black, red, and white. OK could do that's good to work with.
Last time we went to Texas to visit DH family I went fabric shopping for my sisters quilt. I looked and looked and could not find anything appropriate. I wanted to leave the fabric store, but, DH went over and picked out some solid, red, black, white and some pretty flowered to go with it. Joy!! I was happy finally found something nice. I put the fabric up on facebook so she could see it. She says "it's nice but all those flowers" can't you put something country in there? She mentioned it again yesterday and I told her no I could not, and fabric is not cheap to come by.
I was ready to abondon a plan I had for hers, but, DH told me, go ahead and make it, it's from your heart, you know she has never been appricaitive of anything.
You think I should still make it??
