    Oh my! Thank you.
    I find these really fun to do, and not as time consuming as you would think, by the looks of it.

    Thanks again for the kind words.

    I made a quilt which I realized, through the grapevine, was not "liked" and I asked for it back. I made another, totally different one, taking into account the wife's favorite colors and toned way down (she is a "soft" person and doesn't like in-your-face type of art). Then I gave her a choice and she immediately chose the more conservative, which really featured her colors. We all are different. In your case, the disruption of their lives may be a big factor. But, as you said, some people just don't "understand" quilting and have no concept that a lot of love goes in to those stitches.

    Whatever... your quilt is outstanding and obviously we quilters can feel the love that went into it. God bless you and your extended family.
