This is awful, and I don't know what to do! My niece had a baby girl and I just finished a top to a quilt I made for her...and I love it so much I don't want to give it away! I'm so ashamed. It's not like it is complicated piecing that I should be proud of or anything fancy, I just LOVE it!

I keep looking at it and asking myself why I love it so much. You might say it is because it has red polka dot fabric in it, and you might be right...but I do have other quilts with red polka dots in them that I haven't felt this way about.

My biggest fear: what if when I have a granddaughter and I make her I quilt -- what if I don't like it as much???

I will be seeing my niece in a week. Can I quickly make another quilt that can be cute, but that I don't fall in love with?

Here is a peek...

What would you do?


  1. Hurry! Make another quilt out of fabric with a child theme. :)

  2. Oh dear, what a dilemma! I have trouble giving anything I make away so I understand where you are coming from. I am sure you will find a solution.

  3. I have given away very few quilts. I love them too much after I have spent so many hours on them. Yes, I am selfish. Follow your heart and do what you think you should do.

  4. I say give it away... There was one quilt I made for a comfort quilt and dearly loved. It was all I could do to give it away. Once I knew how much it was totally appreciated in all respects, it confirmed my decision that it went to the right place.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment!
