    It was sure nice of you to make such a beautiful quilt for her. I know it is hard when we don't get a "thank you" but as my mom always told me "You do something nice for someone because you want to and not for what you will get out of it". I don't think mom was referring to a thank you but I do think life gets in the way sometimes and we just forget to do the little things that mean so much. I'm sure she appreciates it very much and when she sees you in person she will tell you and give you a huge hug. Smile

    You know, I'm starting to think younger people simply don't know what a quilt is, or how its made. They just call it a "blanket" because thats the closest thing they recognize it as. sharet

    Wow what a shame. The quilt was a beauty and it should have come with a great big thank you.

    If a friend of mine or co-worker sends a gift for one of kids or grandkids, when I give it to my kids I also hand them a thak you card to write so that I can take it with me. They all know that mom has a box of thank you cards just for those occasions.

    That is really pretty, lots of time in it.
    When we had bridal shower for nephew and his bride to be, I got a thank you with in the week. It's been two months and she will be soon back to school teaching. I just thought they would take care of notes before then.
    When DH and I were married I got personalized thank-you cards out within a week. But I'm still waiting for a thank-you from my niece for the wedding gifts I gave her. It's been over 8 years now ...I guess I need to step away from the mailbox...

    Beautiful quilt!! I know when I was first married it was a busy time and my notes were late.....maybe she was too embarrassed to send them late? Do not
    let this hurt cause a rift in your family.....God will bless you if you are the bigger
    person and forgive!!!

    It is a shame that young people today do not realize a simple thank you would show they appreciate the gift. I think it is lovely. Love the way you document your quilts.

    Oh my, it's gorgeous! Seems a lot of young people are long on acquisitiveness, but short on appreciativeness. I'd have been very happy if someone had given me a quilt like that, and they'd have known it, too!

    my children HAD to send thank U's because their Granny was on the phone 3 days after she sent something wanting to know if they had gotten them yet so they learned real quick.

    It is a beautiful quilt. Kids these days can be so rude sometimes. I have a niece who is like that. I made a quilt for her first baby and she didn't even acknowledge that she received it much less thank me. She is having another baby and had the nerve to ask if I was making her another quilt???!!!. I just told her that it was alot of work and I just didn't have the time right now.

    I made a baby quilt for my neice and never got a thank you, but often when she posts pics of the baby the quilt is in it. That's all I need, to know it is being loved.

    It's lovely and we all understand the time and effort needed to make such a pretty quilt. I'm betting that someday she will as well and then be very greatful to have it.

    If a relative wants a quilt from me, all they need to do is ask me, otherwise I do not just make one for them. They know what they want as far as design, color etc. I have a niece and nephew getting married and I would love to make them a quilt but unless I hear from them or their parents it isn't going to happen.

    Oh, my - beautiful quilt, how disappointing that it wasn't acknowledged. Maybe it was lost in the mail?

    It's true - many of the less personal gifts I've given to younger folks have not been acknowledged (checks, gift cards for children of friends), but I'd like to think that a relative would appreciate such a lovely hand made item enough to send a note.

    Beautiful quilt, you did a great job.
    Only a few months ago, my Grand Daughter got married, and while it was a wonderful wedding, no one received thank you notes.
    I guess its just this generation.
