    I find so many younger people do not send thank you notes. I was going to do some quilting for a niece, but decided at 26 she wouldn't appreciate it.

    That is really pretty, lots of time in it.

    That is just beautiful, and can't imagine how many hours you spent on it. I agree that people just do not send thank yous. My avatar is a quilt that I gave a niece for a wedding gift a year ago, and know that I will never receive a thank you, but, I take joy in having made it and gifted it. And keep on making and gifting, because of the pleasure that it gives me.

    Seems to me that the younger generation are not taught by their parents the value of a thank you. I to have grandchildren that I have made things for and plenty of store bought items for birthdays, christmas, etc. and never got so much as an acknowledgement they received them. I now just give them a gift card and they can get what they want. Still get no thank you for that either.

    Thank you for showing it to us! Its gorgeous. I'm sure she loves it, sometimes life just gets in the way and we forget our manners.

    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.

    I have tried and tried and tried to teach my children to send thank you notes. I've even told them they were not allowed to touch the gift until they wrote a note. My oldest son has finally started sending a short "Thanks" on Facebook, sigh.

    My mom told me her two brothers never sent thank-you notes and could not figure out why they stopped receiving gifts.

    Your quilt is beautiful.

    That is not an easy quilt to do. It is a gorgeous design. The fabrics are wonderful.

    The niece needs a lesson in manners.

    Any chance of hinting to the Mother that you think her daughter didn't like it since you never got a thank you.

    That is a beautiful quilt and clearly you did A LOT of work and time in to it. I agree that the younger generation does not say thank you when they should as well..... however I would be bold enough to get back with the bride or her mother and find out ...if it is not something that fits into her "decor" then you would gladly take it back and get her a gift card. That way you can at least find out if she is going to keep it or give it away.
    Just my thoughts.

    Anymore when I make a quilt for others I just don't even expect a thank you...I enjoy the process. If I do get one it is a huge bonus! Sometimes we set our stage expecting things to happen when they don't we get upset. Now I try not to set my stage and when something nice happens like a thank you it means twice as much!

    I'm with Rose...I would call the girl herself and ask her if she received it or not and say that if she didn't like it I would gladly take it back and give her a gift card. It would also be the last quilt she got from me.

    I get a lot of pleasure making charity quilts. I don't expect a thank you and feel fairly certain my efforts are actually appreciated. The quilt is gorgeous.
