    Are you actually telling me she didn't even unfold this darling little quilt? Seriously? If that's what I'm understanding, what is wrong with that person? They're going to let her raise a child? God help us!

    I am so sorry all your hard work went unappreciated! I think it is adorable. I understand your feelings. My grand daughter asked me to make a quilt for her first daughter (my first great grand daughter). She picked out the fabric, "signed off" on the pattern and never commented on it upon its finish. To this day, I've still never heard whether she liked it or uses it. I've never seen a picture of it in any she's taken. But the satisfaction I got from creating and making it, was my reward. Hope this softens the blow for you. Thanks for sharing.

    The good news is - you're the pilot!

    Some people feel so rushed and nervous sitting in front of the crowd that they fly through gift opening. They are also trying to treat each gift equally. Can't really oooh and aaaah over a new carseat so if they jump up and down over the quilt, others might be offended. I try not to be offended by anything.
    See if she says something nice later on when the hormones have calmed, she can see her feet again and there aren't 75 people staring at her hoping she will hurry up and finish opening gifts faster...

    Hopetoquilt and lolly gagging I admire your attitude and your sense of humor. I would find it difficult to be so kind!

    Wow! HUGS to you for taking that so graciously. Hopefully, she didn't mean to be so....whatever...
    The quilt is darling.

    Well, I think it's a beautiful quilt. She should have opened it and shown it off.
    No matter how tough life is, it sure beats the alternative.

    Awe, how sad for you! I know you must've been crushed! Awe, but the quilt is sew precious! I think I'd have had to say, "oh, but no!, it ain't just another blanket! It's a handmade QUILT!" LOL!
    If a woman's work is never done....why start?
