    It's a lovely quilt. I would be proud to own it and the recipient will too.

    I go through the same thing when I make a quilt for someone - I don't think it is good enough. Then I think how I would feel is someone gave it to me. I would love it and cherish it.

    I feel like I'm playing one of these "What's wrong with this picture game". I don't see it, your quilt is quite nice, I'm confused regarding your message! Looks to me like it's going to be a big hit!!

    I must be looking at the wrong quilt, because the one I see here is beautiful!

    I have to agree with everyone else here. That quilt is gorgeous and I am positive the recipient will love it. You are being way too hard on yourself.

    I think it is beautiful. Maybe you need to put it up for a day or two and then look at it with new eyes? You are not seeing the forrest for the trees...

    I think she's thinking it isn't "flashy" or "showy" or "bright" enough from a distance.

    Which has nothing to do with how nice the quilt is.

    I think it is rather nice. I do not understand why you do not like it. It looks soft and comfy. Nice to wrap up in with a grandchild. Don't be so hard on yourself. You put lots of love in it.

    Your quilt is beautiful. You have nothing to worry about.
    Maybe you need a good rest and tomorrow you will see it
    in a different light.

    It's a beautiful quilt.

    Not every quilt needs to be bright, colourful and dramatic. Nor do these types of quilts suit every person and/or every home.

    This one is more soft, subtle and subdued. You've done a great job of the points and matches.

    And have done yourself proud!

    I think the neighbors will be very impressed and probably envious, too. Her quilt will be shown to everyone and they'll agree the American quilt is beautiful because it is.

    I am looking for a mistake, but don't see one.

    It's beautiful. Maybe she won't air it from her balcony anyway. My mom never did--maybe it's because we lived in a one-story house! :)

    Anyway...I like it and I'm not sure why your heart sank. I'm only on page one of the thread, so I'll continue reading to see if you explained why. From my computer chair, it is beautiful--and that is farther than the neighbor's house--guaranteed!

    You're right, it needs a little something. Like my bed under it. Seriously though, it's beautiful, I can't see a thing wrong with it so I don't know why you'd be upset about it, I'd be proud as punch if I managed to create a quilt like that.

    I think it's beautiful. I'd be proud to hang that on my clothesline. If I had one. Heck, I'd put one up for that.

    I love it. Sometimes you get just burned out of the fabric of the the quilt. It is time for it to go to its new home and be appreciated. It is VERY PRETTY.

    Have you stared holes in it from looking at it too long? The person who gets this quilt is gonna love it and cherish it forever! After you give it to her, please come back on thes board and give us her side of the story!!! (Maybe a picture of her snuggled up with it and a big smile on her face!)
    Hey, Olebat, you did good!

    I too have a quilt that doesnt really look like much when you look at the whole thing form a distance, but looking out over it when it is pulled up around me is quite another thing, and I bet yours is too!
