    I am appalled that she did not respond...I'm not sure manners are even taught anymore. Your quilt is lovely.

    The same thing happened to me when I sent my neice a quilt. I finally had to call her to see if she got it. She had but never thought to call to tell me or to say a simple thank-you. It makes you feel awful so I feel for you. Your quilts are beautiful and don't let her get you down. Keep up the good work.

    At least now you know who NOT to make a quilt for! I am afraid we have a lot of youngish people out there who don't have much in the way of manners. But of course it is we the parents who should be instilling common courtesy in them. We have dropped the ball somewhere along the line.

    wow. Even my 2 year old says please and thank you!! I'm shocked. I grew up in a house (I'm 28) and so did my DH (who's 30) that please and thank you were expected. DH still holds doors for me and for tons of other people.

    I think your quilt is beautiful. Love it!

    I love it. So sad that she didn't let you even know that she got
    it. She doesn't realize how much work goes into a quilt.

    Beautiful quilt. Has anyone noticed that people today just don't know how to say thank you or just don't think there is a need. When I. Was a child my parents made sure I sent a thank you for a gift weither I liked it or not, that it was the thought that mattered. Today people just act like they are entitled and then wonder when you don't gift them for everything. Yes its the thought that matters but they still need to respond if only so you know it wasn't lost in the mail.

    It's a shame your beautiful work was not properly acknowledged. I agree with doing very simple work for those who won't appreciate it OR doing noting at all and giving your handmade love to some group in need.
    I once gave a b'day gift to my nephews daughter and never got even a verbal acknowledgment (let alone a thank you). That was the last gift they ever got from me!
    Keep on making quilts for yourself and those that care, it will make you happy!

    There is no excuse for not having common courtesy! I am 27 I say "yes, sir" "no, sir" "please" "Thank you" and my five year old does as well. I think it is the person. I show people things that I am making just to see how they react the ones who could care less, I could care less to make anything for! it takes a lot of time and love to make these quilts. I would've called her and told her what I thought of her lack of manners. I have been supper lucky and have had nothing but outstanding show of appreciation for the couple of quilts I have given! You should come and hang out with my family, we may not have much but we appreciate what we have and give thanks for everything we receive! It is a beautiful quilt!

    I'm sorry you got discouraged. I hope you will make more quilts too. You did such a beautiful job. It's hard when you put your heart into a gift and it goes unnoticed. All of us here understand. Big Hugs.

    Well,you sure made a beauty of a baby quilt! I love the purple colour and the design - like woven ribbons.

    Could I ask where you found the pattern??? I love it!

    It looks great! Don't let others keep you down. You wouldn't believe how many times I've made something for someone without even a thank you. I especially hate it when they ask for you to make something, then you pay for the supplies, then you finish give it to them, and then poof...they don't say thanks...those who do not sew, do not know the amount of work involved. At least you can know that things you make yourself are better than anything you by at a store:)

    What BABY woudn't love this quilt! Please don't let this get you down. I have learned over many, many, many years, I only do projects for myself and then give them away as I like. I do make quilts for people who ask but not because they want it. I do it because I want to. How anyone feels about my work doesn't matter. I enjoy doing it.

    Looking forward to seeing your next quilt posted, quickly! :D
    Peace
