    I like yours with 4 stripes rather than the 3 strip I used. Good job. I make lots of Charity quilts and only when we get to talk to some of the folks who give them out, do we hear what these quilts mean to the folks who receive them. That keeps us going.

    I love it - but purples/lavendars are my favorite - but you did a great job! Some younger people of today just do not have the appreciation of a hand made quilt versus one that is boughten... If only they could acquire the "feel" of made with love by someone who thought enough of them to give them a quilt - but I think our younger generation is losing sight of such... too bad; but I do love it! Keep on quilting- you did wonderful!

    Very pretty, I love the purple. I agree with everyone that says I just don't think people realize the time and love you put into a quilt. I'm a newbie at quilting and (sewing),so needless to say I'm so excited that I made that I want them to have the same reaction.

    At least the baby is surrounded by your love and effort and that's the main thing... the niece, well... she's another story. It's a beautiful and comfy looking quilt.

    It's lovely...don't let her discourage you on quilting. Your niece just didn't appreciate a labor of love. Maybe she will appreciate it later.

    Don't let her response stop you from making more great quilts. You've got the talent and there are so many in need who would love one of your quilts:-)

    Some people seem to have no clue-- or care -- how much work goes into a quilt! And some people apparently think it is their due to receive gifts and just have no appreciation!

    When my niece married, she told my sister she wanted a king-sized Double Wedding Ring quilt. When I asked 'why me,' she said because I'm the quilter in the family. I didn't make it. Instead, I created a beautiful silk frame with one of her favorite pics. It took many days searching for just the right -- and expensive -- materials to create it. Had I known it would end up costing $100 I would probably not have started it! I then added a nice check to the package.
    Two years later I made 2 hand-quilted quilts for their first-born. When I later gave them a simple raggy denim and flannel quilt they could throw on the lawn for the baby, they flipped over it and I FINALLY got my first thank-you EVER from her!!! Ooooops, I'm wrong -- her HUSBAND sent it, she didn't even bother to sign her name!!

    I finished another quilt just in time for their second son's birthday, no thank you yet.

    He just turned 2. I think I'm done

    Your quilt is lovely. It is so hard to understand people. Guess we are all different but being rude sometimes just shouldn't be.

    Giving a quilt is like giving a little piece of yourself. You did an awesome job!!

    Hang in there, your quilt is lovely. Don't let a niece with no manners deter you from continuing to make lovely quilts.

    And this is just a wild guess -- guess which niece definitely won't see another quilt from you!! It's sad that everyone can't be thoughtful.

    I have made presents for my friends and get a less than "Thank You", which is fustrating. It had made me wonder if it was worth it, until the other day a friend called and asked if I could make quilts for her twin nieces. I think people just don't know how to say Thank You.

    Your quilt is adorable. No counting for bad manners. Just count it up to experience & get back to quilting

    I can't believe how some people don't say anything when they get something like that.My family always makes such a big thing out of things I make for them. It would be really hard for me if I had someone to act like that. I always tell people if you don't want it , just let me know and I will let someone else have it. You did very pretty work and don't let someone bother you from keep doing your work.

    Your baby quilt is beautiful. (My favorite color) I think it is the "new" generation. Either they weren't taught or they don't care. But don't let that stop you from quilting.

    Yes it is sad that some folks do not understand what goes into sewing and quilting a quilt. Until you have tried it you do not know. Hey if she decides she does not want the quilt pass it my way. It is great!!

    I'm not making excuses for her but it may be that she is so overwhelmed with a new baby that she hasn't taken the time to respond. She might have post-partum depression. Perhaps she just forgot... Perhaps... you get the idea. I'm just saying that there may be a lot of reasons she didn't thank you for your BEAUTIFUL work! It's lovely. Keep quilting and continue sending the pictures of your work so that you can delight us!

    No one seems to say thankyou anymore. So I try to say thank you all the time. Make sure people are impressed with your quilts first before giving them away. I always say "if its not your style I'll be glad to take it back"
