    You should feel proud anyway! Sometimes the people we love the most are the ones who hurt us the deepest. Just know in your heart it was a Beautiful Gift!! He just doesn't understand the craft and what it takes to make something like that. I'm sending you a big HUG!!!!!

    I like it. I feel for you, but don't let this rob you of the joy you got from making and giving this quilt. I know it's hard when love ones treat us badly but try to let the negative stuff float away.

    I'm so sorry that you got your feelings hurt. Men are often insensitive to women's feelings and say unkind things. they don't mean it. They are just men. Go back and get your wallhanging and tell your father that you are sorry he didn't like the gift you gave him and that if he'll design what he'd like to have, you'll make it for him. A relationship between a father and daughter is a special one. Cherish the times you have and remember that even thouugh he is your daddy, he's just a man.

    Your father was not thinking of the time and effort you put into this lovely piece of work. Some people dont know how to be grateful.
    I like it and think it is patriotic enuf.

    I think it is beautiful! After years of my mother constantly trying to find flaws in everything I do, and I do mean constantly. My husband told me one day that the only people that matter should be him and my two children. And he said that they are very proud of me and love everything that I do. I love that amazing man! I know it struck a nerve but things that don't kill us make us stronger. And my solution, I stopped making things for my mother. Now, when she sees something I make she tells me how beautiful it is. But if it was for her she would find problems with it. I'm sorry you got hurt. But we are all here for you. I hope you have a great day! And again your quilt is gorgeous! :lol:

    What a sweet husband !!!! Think good thoughts of him today. I know you know how lucky you are ! It might help lessen your hurt a little, at least for today.
    BTW, your wallhanging is really lovely and very patriotic ! Think of all the GOOD firsts you experienced while making it, and continue to enjoy your quilting. SMILE !
