    That is adorable! I cannot believe that others would not like or want a quilt! It is beyond my comprehension.

    I, too, try to be careful about who I give quilts to. Some people, even if they are nice and normal, just DO NOT GET IT! There are too many stories about quilts being used to cover up lawn mowers, for a dog's bed, etc. There aren't many people who realize the time and skill making a quilt takes (not to mention the expense).

    I do not surprise people (even family) with quilts for this exact reason. Even if we think they will LOVE it, you never know! I personally always hated it when people would buy me clothes or decor items, even when I specifically asked them NOT to, because I am so picky. However, with that being said, I agree the young lady really was quite rude.

    If it was me and she had said something along the lines of being so sorry, she didn't care for the colors, but that she greatly apprciated the time etc. that went into it and wanted it to find a home where it would be used...I would have been disappointed but not offended. (Yes it has happened to me, although not with a quilt!) And I would have appreciated the honesty instead of having my hard work stashed in a dark closet somewhere.

    So I don't do surprise quilts! Well I take it back- I am doing ONE surprise quilt, but I don't have any qualms about it because if he doesn't love it he still has to sleep next to me!

    It is a lovely quilt, and I know how much work those little applique's must have been. It found the right home.

    People like her do not deserve something as lovely as this quilt. I hope she is still waiting for her gift from you. I wonder if she will ever realize all the work and love that you put into the quilt. Probably not.At least now you know someone who will enjoy it.

    What a great ending to your story and I would never buy a gift for that little snot again.
    The quilt is adorable by the way:-))
