    Hand-quilted Kaleidoscope for In-laws

    Just finished (kinda) this kaleidoscope for my husband's brother and wife. Always more quilting to be done, but done enough to show them. (I'm not sure they like it though. :-(

    You have made a super job of that quilt... a huge amount of effort has gone into it....why do you think they don't like it?

    That is such a beautiful quilt!! If these people mean a lot to you, ask them that if the colors or pattern are not to their liking you could make another one better suited to their taste. Then keep this beauty for yourself, and make another one with a simpler pattern and using their colors. And for Heaven's sake don't hand quilt that one... they don't seem to have much appreciation for your lovely handwork and effort!

    Oooohhh - it's beautiful. I love lavender and pale green together. If they don't like, give it to me!

    Are you kidding. This is a beautiful quilt. If someone ever gave something like that to me I'd cherish it FOREVER! I know the work and love that goes into something like this.

    Well, I wouldn't give it to them if they even got close to saying they didn't like it. I think it is gorgeous. SO MUCH WORK INTO THIS QUILT.

    Beautiful quilt!! I know the feeling. I made the "fairy quilt" for my granddaughter for her birthday(7), we went to their home for Christmas, while playing with her in her bedroom I found it thrown up on the top shelf in her closet. It made me sad.
