    I didn't read far enough into replies to know the quilt had already been raffled...that's what I get for not checking in more often! Oops!

    Congrats to the winner! Her great-grandbaby is very blessed!

    This a BEAUTIFUL quilt! I am sure the lady that made the comment was having a little tinge of jealousy. I doubt if she could hold a candle to the work that you did on this quilt! It is too bad that people have to be so hateful. I can't understand why people can't be happy for one another's accomplishments. Whatever you do, don't listen to her. In the old days when would actually put a mistake into their quilts purposefully. They believed that by doing this, they showed God that only he was perfect. It was done in reverence. Anyway......You have made an outstanding quilt! GOOD JOB!

    I'll have to remember that line: "Well, that was unkind." I usually say something like "I know, but I really WANTED it like this." I must have missed something. What was her beef? I think the quilt is lovely. And I love the corners.

    Beautiful quilt!! I agree that the corners of the snowball block looks like butterflies. I took a moment to realize it was a snowball, first I saw a star, which quickly turned into butterflies, then finally the snowball. You can be very proud of this quilt.

    Queen, Your beautiful work and generosity so puts the quilt police lady, or should I just say woman, to shame. I was in the presence of a critical person like this once, and the lady being criticized very blankly looked at the one criticizing and said, "You know, that behaviour is very unattractive". Not another word was spoken. Great quilt for a marvelous cause. You are the winner!!

    Beautiful. It should bring in lots of money. I can't see a thing wrong with it.

    [....next time tell her it's really hard trying to decide where to put a mistake so people like her can hunt for them. [/quote]

    I'm with you, but these sorts of comebacks usually occur to me too late

    Good job, Queen!
    The quilt is beautiful, the recipient is most grateful for you generosity and ability, the school house is a wonderful project, and ...

    The difference between you and big mouth is: You DID it, and she just talked about it. When people with loose lips start shooting their verbiage around, they should never be surprised when someone tells them where to get off the bus ... now that you know who she is ... life will be much simpler for you , since that is one less opinion you have got to be concerned with.
    I know my post is after the fact, but doggone it! You deserved better, and good for you to get right back in her face. Bullies always depend on others having good manners ... once in awhile, they actually reap what they sow, and I am glad you gave it back to her. It sounds to me that you used a bunch of grace and mercy in your response, too ... her apology of "i didn't mean, but" .... just keep in mind the measure of that one .. she is not a keeper! That leaves you free to find more friends ...

    Beautiful quilt. I don't see any flaws - it's for such a great cause and I'm sure the restoration will benefit greatly from the wonderful gift you created. I'll bet the woman was just green with envy at what you did! I love it!

    Ooooh! that's just perfect in my eyes! Whatever that quilt police person said is because she most probably:1. doesn't quilt 2.is jealous of your talent. What a lovely quilt and you are a lovely person for dong such a time intensive project for charity.
