    People that don't make things, don't know what goes into making things. To her, it was just another blanket. Unfortunately, she didn't give you the appreciation you were due. Someday she will know. For now, all you can do is hope that it keeps the baby good and warm.

    I love the colors. They are showing up purple on my screen. I have not attempted to machine quilt. I think it is beautiful.

    So sorry for your unhappy experience. I just can't get over this group of ungrateful young people.
    The only way I know if they get my check (gift) is when it clears the bank.

    Very nice baby quilt! Great colors.

    I don't know what to say or do about relatives who don't appreciate home made gifts. It seems to be a fairly common experience.

    But, with respect to a new Mom and a baby gift, just remember what she might be going through.

    In any case, don't let it get you down or stop you from creating things!

    Rebie you can make me aquilt anytime! I give all of mine away and don't have any, isn't that a sad statement? Your quilt is lovely I don't usually like purple but I think it is great for a baby. You did a wonderful job!

    Sad isn't it that some people in this generation has no idea what a mere "Thank You" means. Of course we don't GIVE for the Thanks but its always nice to know that the gift is appreciated. I love giving to my kids and my grandkids... the grands always give the best kisses and thank you's. And to give charity quilts and blocks is to be giving because it does the heart good...no Thanks wanted.

    Pretty quilt and when she is older and decides she would like to make something and find out how much work is involved she will be much more appreciative! Her loss.

    Very pretty quilt....unfortunate about the lack of manners on the mother's part...perhaps her offspring will encounter a mentor/teacher to fill the manners void which no doubt exists in their home.

    I love it - It looks like a weave pattern...last time I tried this pattern it didn't come out this good - looked like blocks just thrown together - so I'll take it if she doesn't want it :)

    Well - Some peoples' kids!!

    Sadly, children aren't being taught common courtesy these days. But you would think an adult would at least have a clue.

    Anyway, I love it.

    Non-quilters don't really understand the time and love we put into our quilts. However, she should've at least said thank you.

    Your quilt is beautiful. I'm sorry that your niece didn't appreciate the thoughtfulness of your gift. I guess it is hard for some people to comprehend the amount of time and money that goes into a project like this. Congrats on completing it and don't give up on quilting! Your doing great!

    Your quilt it wonderful and shame on her for not letting you know how much she appreciated it. Some people are just that way. Keep quilting and showing us your pictures, I love seeing what everyone is doing and admiring their work.

    Thank You must not be common anymore. It also happens when you give wedding gifts. This had happen to me then was invited to baby shower and I decided, nope because a thank you never came from the wedding gift. Hate to be like that but I still believe in thank you's. That means more to me than anything.

    Two years ago I made a quilt for my new Great Grand-daughter, for Christmas. Never got a thank you from her mom, nor did she even let me know she got it. Finally did get a notice from her MIL on Facebook telling me that they liked it. How is that for a round about way of a half hearted thank you. So no more quilts or gifts for them. I hate to be that way, but a simple thank you from them would have been nice.
