    P.S. That is one beautiful quilt. I love the pattern and colors; especially the black. The black gives it the uniqueness that is yours.

    You did the right thing. In fact you are an honourable person. Your quilt is beautiful and I wish you the best of everything.

    I probably would have quoted an outrageous price and if she bought it, would have donated the cash to the school -then made another for the raffle.

    You did the right thing. It would be a good lesson for the children at school. Teach them while their young.

    You did the right thing. The quilt had already been spoken for.

    That is a SUPER quilt! I have been "used" and will not do anything for anyone but my family. (immediate family)

    I would have given her info on the raffle and left it at that.

    IMHO you did exactly right. How would you have explained to the school why you no longer had it to donate to them? But I'm not sure that I would have sent her the pattern though.

    I might have offered to make another for her at the price you name and with a deposit ahead of time. But could you make one just like it? Would you have time? The school will be grateful you honored your word, and you are, too. What a beautiful quilt!

    OMG that is just gorgeous!!! I think you did the right thing and too bad there are rude people that can't even extend a thank you.

    I think I would have told her the quilt was promised, but offered to make her another one just like it. When you agreed on a price, I'd get at least half in advance as a deposit.

    I also think you did exactly the right thing. But if she really loved that quilt, I might have offered to make her another one and stated a specific price for it, especially since you say the same fabrics were readily available.

    I doubt I'll ever make another like this. It all kinda grew out of the fact that I didn't like the fabric I chose and wasn't crazy about making kaleidoscope blocks. I was just adding bits and pieces to it any which way until it got big enough to be useful. In the end it turned out pretty cool, but I'd never do another.

    You should rest assured that you did the right thing - even above and beyond. The qult is beautiful. I can see why she would want it, but it wasn't hers to have.
    Relax, knowing you're a responsible (to the shool) and generous person (to her).

    It's beautiful, you did the right thing, and besides, if she didn't even thank you, than your quilt wouldn't have gotten the good home it deserved. I bet whoever wins that quilt in the raffle will be absolutely THRILLED!
