    oh, yeah ... i am sooooo with you! i'd give daughter a sweater instead.

    if she's a good daughter, she'd never ask you to part with something so beautiful. :lol:

    Beautiful! Nice work, love the scalloped boarders.

    Now has the DD seen this quilt? Does she know that she is getting "A" quilt? If the answer is no to both . . . go ahead and get her a different present. LOL

    I have had some quilts that were gifts that I loved and wanted to keep. So I understand your dilemma. But... those are the ones that you know have lots and lots of love in them. She will also adore the work and love you put into her gift.

    Standing Ovation!!!!!!!!!! WoW,,It's a beauty. How about entering it some where first? Collect alot of Blue Ribbons and then pass it on to your daughter, with the promise of Keeping as a Family Heirloom. Love your scalloped border. Was this a pattern?

    it is called "hot flashes", each month has a cute title that goes along with the hot flash theme, like 'mental pause' 'oceans of tears' 'on edge', etc. i got it from a local quilt shop, it was a block of the month.

    Beatiful beyond words!!! I think this is a quilt your DD should inherit and you should keep it and enjoy it now.

    Wow :!: :!: :!: That is one stunning quilt. I saw buy your DD a different gift and sent the quilt to me. :D :D I'm with everyone else if your daughter can really care for the quilt and know the love that went into it then give it to her. If she will not appreciate it then keep if for yourself. Very beautiful quilt. Thanks for sharing.

    Can you make another for whoever doesn't get it? :D

    It's truly wonderful--congrats. And thank you for sharing that picture and making our day.

    What an awesome quilt. If you still have the fabric, make another one for yourself. I always buy more fabric that is needed for a quilt, just in case I want another one like the one I originally made for someone else.
