People suck
Years ago I gifted 2 queen 2 twin blankets. They said I took the cheap way out.
Not true, I took the cheap way out the next year. Gave them nothing.
Seriously?!?  That would've made my blood boil.  They clearly have NO idea how expensive quilt making is

Yuck. Even if you don't like a gift it's the height of rudeness to complain about something that's been given. Gosh, I taught my children that when they were so young. How incredibly ungracious, I am very sorry to read that happened to you.

Honestly, it was the best thing that ever happened to me because it showed me who they really were. No more lost sleep over those fools.

It's rude to ask a maker to make you something just because you think it's cool, and I feel it is doubly rude to expect a maker who celebrates Christmas to make ANYthing in the month of December. Or even November. October too. Just... If you want something hand-made, especially for nothing, or for very little, stick to Jan-June. A last minute scarf at Christmastime? Ain't no one got time for that nonsense. For some reason, there are people out there who just automatically feel entitled to the skills of those around them. Those people can suck it. Cheesy

Sometimes I post at Lothruin.com!

Lothruin, your post made me giggle the way you worded it  Cheesy, but you got right to the point!  I agree with you completely!
