Having Second Thoughts on Quilt Donation....
I was asked to do a quilt for the "Common Room" at our new habit hostel. I made a country style quilt....lots of work and money. When I took it over to show the CEO of this place, it was a cool response...no "oh it's nice or thank you". I also got a tour of the facility. What she calls the "Common Rooom" is merly a tiny waiting room when you walk in which will have 1 sofa, 1 chair & a rocker. She is going to drape the quilt over the rocker. There will be no staff on at night.
1) I feel what I made is too large for this area.
2) I have a concern about security and opportunities for theft.
3) I don't want this quilt to become a chair pad for a rocker.
4) I don't feel this CEO has an ounce of appreciation for handmade quilts.
I have made 2 cushions to go with the quilt. Now it is time to turn it over to them and all of a sudden I feel very reluctant....what can I do....in my heart I do not want to give the quilt to them....I have never felt this way before on any charity item I have made.
Can someone help me sort out my mixed up feelings? All opinions and suggestions welcomed.
