    This thing was a beast! I made it for the lady who gave me her sewing machine. I designed it and she gave me the color scheme.

    I named it sunlit path because it looks like a sunset, and the alternating way the blocks are set kind of looks like a path to me.

    So what do you think?

    The woman I made this for, won't take the quilt because I won't make pillow cases to match without being compensated for it.

    We agreed to her giving me the machine and I make her a quilt. No money exchanged. There was nothing in our communications mentioned about a pillow case clause.

    Now when I email her to tell her that it's done, she asked me if the pillowcases were done. I told her I didn't remember agreeing to any pillowcases, and now she told me she won't take the quilt and is angry that I "jipped her" and is accusing me of being dishonest.

    :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

    I'm so angry! GRRRRRRRRrrr

    I have enough scraps of material left over to make some babydoll pillowcases. I should make them, and deliver them wtih the quilt to her. There's your pillowcases! LOL

    Sorry for the rant, but I'm just so frustrated. I pour my heart and soul into making quilts, and now one isn't being accepted because she can't milk it for all it's worth, just outrages me!!!!

    I know I can gain some sympathy here...lol

    That is so sad that the lady is doing this. But your quilt is beautiful and she is losing out if she doesn't accept it.

    I have been up for hours and hours....and your quilt is so lovely, I was thinking to write you and tell you " your quilt is better than a morning cup of coffee....prettier than the sun coming up!
    That yellow ray is so bright in your quilt....I would relish to have it on my bed...it would give me a smile each morning....like it did today.

    MAYBE SHE NEEDS YOUR QUILT TO INFLUENCE HER TO BE A BETTER, SWEETER PERSON!

    I can't imagine what she is thinking.....(about the pillowcase issue)

    Does she KNOW how much time went into that wonderful quilt??????

    I'm so sorry that what should have been a nice experience turned into
    one that will probably break friendships......I just don't know what I would
    do if I was in your shoes....

    i just read the info about her not taking it - what a complete bummer. I am so sorry for the aggravation and how unappreciative she is. I'm sure you told her that there is not enough fabric left to make the cases, (but if she sends you the fabric, you would be glad to make them)! :wink:

    I think that it is just wonderful.... :D

    Thanks for the understanding guys. I just am so angry about this. I pour my heart and soul into making quilts. From the initial pattern to the binding. This is the best one I've ever done in my opinion and my hubby's opinion, and now that she doesn't want it...I cried myself to sleep last night.

    I woke up to find another nasty email from her telling me how dishonest I am being about not making pillow cases, and that I can just keep it.

    i would be happy to make cases for her, but she needs to give me the money for materials, as I'm out of matching material. Or she can buy some solid color cases herself that will match...I just don't understand people sometimes.

    I put so much work into this, my heart and soul, and I'm absolutely crushed at the actions of this horrible woman!

    I could send it to one of you guys if you want! It needs a home!

    But the bright side? My mother in law said she'd take it. I don't know how much use it will see at her house, but at least it gets it out of mine!

    OK now she is just being rude and greedy. It's a beautiful quilt and a nice gift. I would give it to her anyway. You can feel good about what you have done. She is the one being unreasonable.

    Sorry this has happened to you and that it will put a strain on your friendship. Doesn't sound like she is being much of a friend. I call friends like that High Maintenance. :( :( :(

    Yeah, she's not a friend. She was someone who I made a deal with to get a sewing machine because I couldn't purchase it from her. Not a friend at all.

    I'm not giving it to her. She doesn't deserve it, and she doesn't want it anyway...so I'm trying to find it a home.
