    I must add that I have given quilts to my grandchidren & when I asked him if it was keeping him warm, he said he "lost it" My daughter-in-law never uses anything I give them, homemade or bought, believe me, this hurts. What would you do ??;/

    This is true at our local Target also. It can be especially troublesome when trying to get a refund on an item that was purchased on sale at a store in a more depressed area.

    I also consider to make the blank triangles with printed fabric instead of white. I somehow have the idea that this would "hold" the quit together and frame it better.

    AND OF COURSE I AM FISHING FOR COMPLIMENTS to get me going!
