    Sad to this go.

    Made this quilt in 2003 and sold it to a family member for a wedding gift.Sad to see it go but my finished quilts are piling up and need to part with a few.Does anyone have an attachment to some favorite ones?

    I have an attachment to lots of quilts ... and sometimes have a problem starting a project for someone else, as I want it for me, not as a give-away!

    The colours flow so nicely in that quilt that I can totally see why you are to see it leave. Just remember that you had it for nine years and now someone else can enjoy it.

    Wow, that is beautiful!
    I haven't a pile yet, all of mine go straight in a gift box or on a bed, ha ha. I sure would have hated to see that one go out the door for sure. ~ Pat

    I don't ever seem to keep a quilt for myself -- they all go to others. That's a lovely quilt, and I'd hate to part with it if it were me!

    It's so calming, so beautiful. I understand how you feel.
    But look at it in another way - you've enjoyed making it, now you get to earn some cash (for more fabric), and a lovely couple gets to use it for years to come. Isn't that great!

    The quilt is gorgeous. Yes there are a many quilts I am attached to. Luckily I teach and show quilts at nursing homes so I get to keep most of my quilts.

    Have not had this dilemma yet. I have enjoyed making quilts to give away but the day will come I am sure.

    I can see why this one was tough to part with. It is beautiful!. I don't have any trouble letting go of my quilts. Usually by the time I finish one ..I have someone in mind that I think will enjoy it.

    Oh! this quilt is beautiful and would be hard to part with. Yes, I have had some that was hard to let go. But, I soon came to realize that I can't keep them all.

    That is a gorgeous quilt, I would be sad to let it go, I have problems letting quilts go. Good about if I am making for a specific person but bad if I'm not, my sister took two of my favorites and that was tough but I knew they would be well cared for.

    That is just beautiful- the colors are sensatonal. I find that by the time I'm done with a quilt, I have formed such an attachment to it that it's difficult to let it go. So, yes, I have a pile of finished quilts and do soooo enjoy looking at them and spreading them out. Sometimes visitors get a trunk show when they are here.

    Beautiful quilt... I can understand why it would be difficult to part with. I have trouble letting go of almost every one I make. Even when they were created with the recipient in mind. I have a completed one for one of my DIL's in a pattern I didn't even want to make. But now that is it done, I like it and feeling a little possessive.

    It's a gorgeous quilt! I would have hated to say good bye to it as well. How lucky to have sold a quilt though
