    The Quilt Stealer!

    I went to my friends for about two weeks and when I came home, I wanted to put my quilt on my bed. I discovered I could not find it, and I asked my mom if she had seen the quilt, she said that I should go ask my sister. I walked into my sisters room and what did I find? My niece wrapped up in my quilt! This was two weeks ago and she refuses to give it back. So now, I must make her one before I leave for school at the end of August. I did not make this quilt, it was a gift from the lovely ladies on this site who made the signature blocks and it was Gwyn who put it together and I think she sent it to someone to quilt it for her, but I don't properly remember. I thought I'd share a photo of the little thief!

    How can I be mad!? She's too cute and she loves it! So I must make her her own!

    I'm so close to the first finish line, yet I feel so far away.

    That will be difficult to remove - Good luck on trading out the one you make! Sew cute.

    Make her something that she will like even more than yours. What does she like? Princesses? Kitties? Flowers? Maybe if she helps pick out the fabrics you'll get yours back.

    That is a good idea! I think I might actually do that, I know she likes all those things, but I'll have her pick. Plus, I can make it her size. Thank you!

    She is a darling little thing under a wonderful snuggly quilt! I am sure she will love what you make for her.

    LOL... What a sweet little face. Who could be mad at her?

    This happened to me once too. I had given my best friend a quilt for christmas and her sis stole it and took it up to tahoe where she lived. She got it back, it took a while, but finally she did.

    So cute! BUT...I think there will be a few tears shed in the process of "taking it back". lol
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    She looks so happy it would be hard to take it away.

    That's what I was thinking. Then it will be hers.

    Good luck reclaiming yours! She is absolutely adorable. You'll have to make some fantastic quilt if you expect to ever get yours back!

    That's a pretty sneaky way to get a quilt. But as you say, who could resist?

    You're bigger than she is- take it back! Just kidding! I like the idea of getting her imput on theme and colors. That way she will more than likely give up yours. Good luck!
