    Your quilt is very pretty, you are very generous and your children are very fortunate that their parents have remained friends - which is best for them. My ex-husband, however, is OUT OF LUCK!!!!
    Enjoy your day,

    Your quilt is beautiful as is your FMQ... I'm sure the dad will be delighted in your gift and appreciates your talent. You are very thoughtful.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    Beautiful quilt & I'm sure he is going to be "blown away". The nicer part is that you & your ex are friends & can be civil
    to each other. We all hear the horror stories about bitter break ups & how they affect the children. Kudos to you. You 2 must have a special bond.

    Your quilt is beautiful and the quilting is great you definitely have these feathers down. I am friends with my ex which is kinda weird since we have no children together but I think we need to move on to forgiveness especially when he treats my children as his own, just like others have said they didn't get a divorce we did.

    This is what "loving your children more than you hate your ex husband" is all about. (Quote from Oprah Winfrey) I really love this and applaud your love and kindness towards your children's love for their father. You are an exceptional person. God bless.

    The quilt is absolutely beautiful. It sounds like you have a "good divorce". My husband has one of those and you know who wins? Everybody!!! His ex made us a beautiful crewel work wallhanging when we were married 38 years ago. It was appreciated by both of us, as your quilt will be by your ex-husband.

    Good for you and your family - nothing like an example - always remembered more than words. Plus it's a great quilt!

    Regardless of the fact that the two of you are no longer together, you will always have the kids in common. Doing this shows your children that FAMILY is more important than conflicts.
    And you did a wonderful job, the piecing is gorgeous and so is the quilting - and you obviously did your best work, regardless of the fact that he's the "ex".
    Beautiful work - and even more beautiful heart!!

    What a great thing to do, especially since you have remained friends. I like the idea of the kids just putting it on his bed and waiting to see how long it is before he notices. It's a beautiful quilt.
