    It is beautiful Ducky. One day she will regret her decision.

    DIL is from a fairly "disfunctional" family and really hasn't had a great life before marrying my son. She grew up with lots of fighting, people not talking to other family members, openly talking about their dislike for others, etc. I'm not sure she can attach herself to something because of sentimentality. (I thank God that my kids never heard fighting/shouting and knew in their hearts how much they were loved). So, I'm trying to understand that some people just don't "get it". Good idea about holding onto it and seeing if my granddaughter wants it when she's old enough.

    It's a beautiful quilt. I'm glad you saved it.
    One day when they are a little older, they'll realize what a treasure they had from someone who loved them & took the time to make such a special quilt.

    Like you, I'm just speechless. I just don't understand how anyone can not feel the family value of something like this, regardless of whether they "don't like the colors" or whatever. Glad you rescued it!

    Every so often someone on here will post pictures of a garage sale treasure. While we all appreciate those, I have always thought of the joy in finding such a treasure and how lucky that person is to now have it with no thought at all about the loss to the family. You've just given me the other side. Thank you.

    I am so glad that you found that quilt before it walked away. Maybe someday she will learn to treasure things that are hand made just for her!

    I'm really glad you seen it!!! I'm surprised your son didn't think to ask if you wanted it first, before putting it in the sale! If he even knew it was out there.

    It's truly a beautiful quilt, made with lots of love. All those hours of work with an aching body.... Putting it up for your granddaughter for when she's older, and telling her of her Great, Great Aunt (?) would be wonderful. :-)
