Errr, I have one. It’s a knitted off white afghan. One of DH’s grandma’s sisters made it. It’s in our guest room!

It’s not my style. What can I say but “thank you” and put it in another room???

Can you use it in a guest room? What does your Fiance think?

I”m just not a fan of, er, antique type stuff =

Can you just use it as a blanket underneath of your already beloved bedspread?  or to curl up with on the couch on these cold winter nights?  I remember we had one when we were kids that we kept next to the couch for tv time.  It was warm and cuddely but not decor.  My parents kept tons of blankets around and they always came in handy for sleep overs, building forts, and making thick pads on the floor for wrestling.. lol.. the good old days.

Haha… the fact that she is making the quilt made me think about the movie “the proposal”  When the grandma says… “that’s the baby making blanket.”  Soo cute. I think it’s a nice gesture of her… accept the gift but don’t use it as your bed spread.  Maybe pull it out when she comes over 🙂

Ooooh, I LOVE that black one!  Next time the Mother-In-Law wants to knit or crochet me something I’m going to show her that!

Keep it folded at the foot of the bed….When she asks about it tell her that You love to have the blanket around to use while you are napping or reading a book…..She’ll think you also use it!

Similar to MrsJHK2be…could you display it on a quilt stand or something (in a dark corner) claiming that you don’t want it to get worn?

My husband’s grandmother made a quilt for our bed that I really didn’t like at all at first…but we put it on the bed anyway and now I’m used to it.

We were given a quilt from my FH mom and dad. FH grandmother made two before she passed away, 1 for FH and 1 for his brother. She told my FH parents not to give it to them until she knew they were doing well and mature. So when we were out visiting them two months ago his mom called me into their bedroom and had the two quilts out on the bed and told me the story behind them and said she thought we should have it now. We got to pick which one we wanted. Now it doesn’t match a single thing in our house lol However it’s really pretty and it has a lot of meaning so I’m just waiting for the right place to use it. Maybe that’s what you should do. IDK if she wants you to actually sleep with it but if it’s pretty maybe you can hang it up or use a shadow box. I also like what someone said about pulling it out to use when your Mother-In-Law comes over. Very smart! lol

I have mixed opinions about that.  If isn’t your style, definitely put it away–I like crotchet/knitted things BUT depending on the yarn & color it’s itchy and hideous.  Here’s an idea:  if you have a living room, make it a throw on the chair? Or you can put it at the base of your guest bed?  Personally, I don’t use afghan’s as my bedspread/comfortor.  Fiance uses one in his bed but I think it’s mildly itchy!
