    Are you actually telling me she didn't even unfold this darling little quilt? Seriously? If that's what I'm understanding, what is wrong with that person? They're going to let her raise a child? God help us!

    I am so sorry all your hard work went unappreciated! I think it is adorable. I understand your feelings. My grand daughter asked me to make a quilt for her first daughter (my first great grand daughter). She picked out the fabric, "signed off" on the pattern and never commented on it upon its finish. To this day, I've still never heard whether she liked it or uses it. I've never seen a picture of it in any she's taken. But the satisfaction I got from creating and making it, was my reward. Hope this softens the blow for you. Thanks for sharing.

    Some people feel so rushed and nervous sitting in front of the crowd that they fly through gift opening. They are also trying to treat each gift equally. Can't really oooh and aaaah over a new carseat so if they jump up and down over the quilt, others might be offended. I try not to be offended by anything.
    See if she says something nice later on when the hormones have calmed, she can see her feet again and there aren't 75 people staring at her hoping she will hurry up and finish opening gifts faster...

    Well, I think it's a beautiful quilt. She should have opened it and shown it off.
    No matter how tough life is, it sure beats the alternative.

    Awe, how sad for you! I know you must've been crushed! Awe, but the quilt is sew precious! I think I'd have had to say, "oh, but no!, it ain't just another blanket! It's a handmade QUILT!" LOL!

    It's a wonderful quilt. I love it. She was very rude. It's a shame that so many people don't know how many hours it takes to make a quilt and how much money it cost to make one.

    Well....i just found out that people don't really know what's goes behind the making of a quilt.....to me it's not just putting fabrics together, making sure they coordinately match, but all the love that goes into it....people who don't quilt just don't understand!!! you did a marvelous job! keep your chin up!

    Even if it had been "just a blanket" and nothing special, the girl (I refuse to call someone, who acts that way, a woman) was extremely rude. Rude is rude . . . and this just burns my biscuits! (I love that phrase! LOL)

    Your quilt is adorable. Sorry your feelings were a little bruised, but maybe she'll come to her senses and properly thank you.
    Those who are piecemakers will sew seeds.

    Very very nice job! Hopefully your recipient will appreciate it later. I agree, maybe she was just so busy and a little nervous at the time. My cousin made two baby quilts for myself and another cousin for gifts. The other cousin never used the quilt at all. The quilt we received is now stored away in a bag, just about in shreds. Our daughter absolutely loved it and took it to daycare every day with her.

    OOOH that is so cute. She should be ashamed of herself. I think it is beautiful.
    SMILE- it will make everyone wonder what you are up to.
    Stay strong and keep looking up.

    I bet when she got home and unfolded the quilt; she was impressed. It is a darling quilt. It is sad that some people don't know how much work and LOVE goes into this piece of art.
