Quilt With Us


I haven't visited this site for quite some time.  Looking over the blogs, I see some of the 'old friends' on here, it's been good catching up.

I'm not sure if this picture will download, but here is my dilemma.  Our youngest son, Colin was engaged to be married.  The engagement lasted 11 months and they were to be married June 4, 2016.  Problems arose and the engagement/relationship was done in May 2016.  Needless to say, the wedding quilt was already made, the only thing I had to do was add the label.  I don't want to keep the quilt, but so much work went into it.....I'm just not sure what to do with it now.  Any suggestions/ideas would be appreciated.  Thank you!

It's a beautiful quilt.  I'm glad you have decided to set it aside for awhile. It will give you time to think about who you want to have this quilt.

This is indeed a heartbreaking event for everyone. I am glad you have decided to just put the quilt away for now. It is really beautiful and when everyone has healed from this you will know what to do with it. It is a beautiful quilt.

Thank you, ladies for all the suggestions. And no, there is no chance of reconciliation for them. I appreciate that many of you affirmed that this was a heartbreaking event. It put me in a funk that took awhile to get out of. We will move on. Colin is a young man of 22. He's a CNA and is planning to pursue a career in nursing. His care and compassion for people made this breakup even harder for him. I think I will stick the quilt in a closet for now and when the right opportunity presents itself, I will have a quilt to donate. Thank you for helping me sort through this.

I agree... This is definitely worth hanging on to for awhile or asking your son what he would like to do with it. It is beautiful and you did a wonderful job on it.

Sue, what a difficult, emotionally heartbreaking situation for your son - and the whole family, really.  My heart goes out to you.  Hopefully the suggestions you've gotten will help.  It is a beautiful quilt.

Another idea might be to ask your son what is preference is if you haven't already done so.  It is a beautiful quilt & he might want it because he knows you made it for him out of love.

All wonderful ideas, but I particularly agree with holding on to the quilt for a while.  It is a beautiful quilt.

LINDA has a good idea about keeping it for awhile.

Has Colin seen the quilt? Does it make a difference that it was made for relationship that he felt had rocky road? My ex begged for quilt he bought me before we tied the knot. It was a kit and it took me three years to cross stitch and quilt.  I had two at the time made, he took the opposite one he really wanted and even had it on his bed with the next wife. We were friends for life that is how I know it was on the main bed. Take the quilt and put it  in a box and store it in the closet for at least a year. They may get back together.

Our guild gives quilts to Habitat for Humanity houses, one for each member of the household.  That is a very beautiful quilt that someone needs to love instead of you seeing it and thinking of what happened.
