    Good idea! The backing is pieced, kinda girly looking, so hands off- maybe? :-)))

    OK, first-the quilt is awesome. Maybe it has enough pink in it that all the men in her house won't steal it from her and she'll get to use it!
    Second-I LOVE the idea of a Video Quilt Date! Must try one myself soon!

    We got the idea of "quilt date" from Rachel's VQD she hosts every month here on the QB. My friend, Julie, and I have done this a few times. We have a lot of fun. We even text - "pause Netflix- time for bathroom break or snack" - just like you would if you were in same room. It really is fun for long distant friends.

    She is so lucky to have a SIL like you. Nothing better than curling up front of the TV with a cozy quilt made with lots of love.

    Great color combination, it will add a nice note of color to their neutral living room.

    I think a comfy TV quilt is the way to go when someone 'hints' about having you make them a quilt! Hope she loves it! And it is so generous of you too, quilts are our passion, most of us don't like 'having' to make them for someone else unless it is our original idea to do so, LOL.
