    Now why can't your niece be like we were brought up? Shame on her....I'd have to give you a thank-you hug, every day for the rest our lives and I still wouldn't feel like that was enough! This is a very awesomely beautiful piece of art...love it, thank you, thank you for sharing with us.

    Can't figure out what is so hard about saying thank you.

    O' has any one ever thought of asking the person if they received your gift, that might prompt a conversation and a thank you. but forgive them if they call it a blanket.
    My MIL was appalled when she gave a afghan as a gift at a baby shower, and it was called a blanket,but she did get a tu

    The quilt is beautiful! Thank you for spending so much time and work on it.
    Everyone is correct, there are very few thank you notes going out any more.

    That is such a stunning quilt! I guess we can only try to be good examples of showing gratitude. Few kids are taught that it's so important. You may tell her that if she doesn't wish to keep it, there are thousands of others who would LOVE it - like me!

    Yes, I agree with you, sometimes life does get in the way, but what can you do. The quilt is Beautiful!! I'm sure she loves it, and probably thinks about you when she see's it.

    OM Gosh! That is so beautiful - and it would be perfect for my redone sewing/guest rm. I just love the ribbon feel of it
    I finally gave up giving relatives gifts. Its not that I want to be profusely thanked, but I have to mail everything and I would just like a note/call/email that the package arrived!
    Its suprising that people with whom I've made friends are nicer about handmade gifts than family - my friends seem to appreciate what I do and my family only see "home" made, not hand crafted personally for them. sharet

    Sorry for your disappointment. The quilt is lovely and it looks as if you put lots of love into it. I always ask before giving someone a quilt, and that way I know if they really want one. Then it is received with the love like I put into it. Bless you, my dear.

    that ribbon is kinda tricky to do. My Mom made that ribbon as an inner border on my DS and DIL's quilt. You did a beautiful job!

    I guess we need to be discriminating as to who we give homemade gifts to as many young folks just do not appreciate the labor of love.

    that's a beautiful quilt...someone wrote on her the other day how they gave a quilt to someone and felt like it was not appreciated... later they visited them and there was the quilt being used...maybe that is going to be this case.

    It's a beautiful quilt! Sorry the younger generation is so into themselves they forget the manners that were taught them. With all the time they spend texting you would think they would take two seconds to thank you. You did a wonderful job on the quilt and am sure it was filled with loving stitches!
