What bright & wonderful colors, such a joy to see. I'm sure your daughter in law will love it, & a good job by your husband :-) We have to thank him to.

Wow...you all have been great at making me feel I actually sewed a pretty quilt..you have know idea what my DIL is like...she is so picky...in the two years she has been married to my son I don't think she has appreciated any of the gifts I have sent her. She hated her mothers BD gift to her, a sunhat with a big flower on it and complained to me over the phone about it..and plans on returning it. .she has yet to learn that it isn't what it is ..but the "who" gave it to her and to cherish those weird gifts..cuz one day....well, we all know that one..it will be no more... we call her "our spoiled DIL".
I DID tell her if she did not like my gift, to send it back...and I don't feel bad about that. They have no children and I do not see any in the future..sometimes, I think that is a good thing...wow..sorry about going on about this.....I hope and trust in the best. thanks for the great support!!

It's lovely, I love the blues and yellows makes it look sunny and cheerful and the cat is a real cute touch. I hope for you that DIL appreciates it but if she dosen't then I believe I saw a couple of other interested parties who would be only to happy to recieve such a lovely quilt:P

Keep trying Barb, cause you just never know :P

If she doesn't appreciate it, then take it back and enjoy all your hard work yourself. You do beautiful work and if she does not understand that,
it is her loss. I used to send my mom all kinds of hand made things for gifts, but she either didn't care for them or undrstand the amount of work that went into them, so now I send her flowers and she justs raves and raves when she gets them.

i have a SIL who is the same way. she is precious but hard to gift. she is getting better after 45 years, or maybe i should say, more discrete about disposing of gifts she doesn't like. oh well, we don't get to pick our in laws.
