    Ok so you have all seen this before - but its COMPLETELY fnished now and I thought I would show it off.

    Sadly, my DH took it to the UK to give to a Grand Niece (aged 5) and her Mother just said - oh - yes - thanks. I am so sad - as ALL MY LIFE, I wanted to make a quilt from squares and I LOVE this. so sad to see its not appreciated - I never heard from them again (it was a couple of months ago) and I even emailed to see how they were getting along with it and heard nothing.

    I know - I know - we all MUST learn to give quilts ONLY where they are appreciated!!!!

    Beautiful quilt. I am sure your great niece loved it even if her mum wasn't appreciative.

    Sorry you are hurt by the lack of manners ... you did a beautiful job and just take it from the source on the other side.

    Lovely quilt. The borders really set it off nicely and the quilting is beautiful. Someday the 5 year old will show her appreciation for the quilt. Shame on the parents for not responding back to you. Thanks for sharing.

    How sad that it wasn't appreciated, it's too nice to be with someone who won't absolutely love it. This is one of the quilts that I hope to make someday. But look on the bright side, it wasn't meant for the mother, her daughter will probably be thrilled with it.

    I like your quilt. I gave one of my first quilts away and I was sorry. It was too big for me to keep on my bed and I had someone who said they really loved it so I gave it to her. Now I am sorry because I think it may be a dirty old dog bed. Oh well, I just will make more. Ha!

    It is beautiful. I agree that the niece will love it!! We leave for Ireland tomorrow! Landing in Dublin, renting car and driving full circle N and S back to Dublin in 2 weeks. Hoping to see lots of quilt shops on the journey.

    Get to work, girl, and make one to KEEP for yourself!!! It probably is being cuddled with but put that aside and be glad that you have the picture of it to treasure. It is wonderful. But, as I said, get busy on for for a keeper.

    The quilt is lovely and it must have been very difficult for you to part with it... especially to someone who didn't seem to appreciate all the hours and love you put into it.
