Quilt 'n' Guilt

During my visit to L.A. my niece came over to her Mom's house and showed me some quilts she had done (photos,) and this quilt, her first. I pretended it was for me, making a clowning, "Oh, for ME? How kind!" I started to hand it back to her and she said, "I was hoping you'd like it. I brought it for you, but if you'd hated it, I would have kept it."

So I feel a little guilty taking this perfectly beautiful quilt, her first real one, but greed took over and I accepted it. Isn't it bright and lovely? Could you have handed it back?

I used to quilt, when I was in my 30's, and now she's in her 30's and quilts. It was too wonderful to resist.

She's really taking off with the craft and it's lovely to see. YAY for family, yay for my niece, yay for me.
