    Such a joyous, colorful bright baby quilt ... I love it.

    Too bad the ingrate brat didn't appreciate any of your gifts. Glad that you took it back and didn't give her something else. Hopefully she's learned a lesson. Her baby would have loved the quilt too.

    another blessed child will get your lovely quilt, YAY!

    Good for you-some people will never appreciate a gift made from the heart and that is their loss.

    You are absolutely right, the quilt went to the right recipient. Rude is not how I would describe the ___ that got the first or the second quilt, especially saying that she preferred one of the baby registry instead of something lovingly handmade. Too bad she didnt' know that she was passing up something that could be worth a lot in years to come, not in the form of money, but in the form of many, many happy memories of the quilt and the special lady that made it. Good for you for finding another home for your lovely gift.

    I agree with this and added:

    You really did a great job!
    Some can not appreciate ... or understand the meaning ... do not worry: their loss!
    Enjoy only the memory of the new face thankful!
    Your quilt will be loved and appreciated!
    A big hug!

    Well, I happen to think it is GORGEOUS! At least she told you, as you said. Some people don't understand/appreciate handmade quilts, they would rather have something made in China that costs 10% of what a homemade one does. I guess that's great for those people. She would have probably either regifted it, used it as a dog bed or thrown it away.

    Good for you for standing up for yourself (and your quilt)!

    My mouth is still open in utter astonishment that someone could really be so ungrateful. I'm sure glad you got the baby quilt back and found someone to appreciate your love and kindness. Too bad you couldn't take the wedding quilt back too. I feel sorry for people who have no feeling of how special a handmade gift is, even if it was different from what they were thinking of. It didn't have to match the nursery, it could be used in any number of different circumstances--to play on, to tuck them in in a stroller, to go visiting, etc., etc. Too bad, her loss. So glad it went to someone who loves it!

    ps love your label!! :-)

    I think you addressed the situation beautifully. I'm glad you got it back and gifted it to someone who appreciates the love that goes into making a baby quilt.

    Exactly!
    Aside from not having character, heart or sense, this young woman clearly also has bad eyesight. Your quilt is beautiful.

    I just hope this ingrate gets a baby to her liking ....

    I love your quilt and your story. What a stupid little snot, but then there are those that don't like the real thing! I have a couple in my family and they don't get much from me. Other's are happy and I'm more than thrilled to make something for them.

    I'm so sorry you had to experience something so rude. In the end, though, your beautiful work meant so much to someone truly appreciative.

    Sure glad it ended up in a happy home. I think you did the right thing... Some people have no idea or even a clue what goes into to making a quilt and how we really hate to give them away.....lol

    You are a gal after my own heart for taking it back and with so much dignity. Having received tears from the very appreciative girl makes all your work that much better. That is where the love is.
