That is so sad that she didn't like it. You can certainly enjoy it instead.

I guess I should have stated it was given to my own daughter. Five months later and she still hung it up. Maybe I'll just make myself one, instead. oh well!

I'm so sorry your daughter didn't appreciate all your work. It is beautiful.

I think your quilt is very pretty. Maybe your daughter is like mine and just doesn't like quilts, beautiful or otherwise. It is so disappointing when your efforts aren't rewarded with appreciation. I made a very pretty lap quilt for my brother-in-law's wedding and never even got a thank you note. You'd think folks in their 60's would know better.

It's very pretty! Maybe it hasn't been hung up yet because your daughter lays it on her bed, or lays it across her lap while she is sitting? You did a great job on it and we quilters are happy to admire it here.
