My MIL gave me her mothers quilts. They were not finished and needed work and I loved quilts. I never got around to doing anything with them and no longer have the space to store them.

My MIL passed away and I have been divorced for several years. I have not been in touch with my SILs recently, although we were always on good terms. I am not sure they would even be interested.

Do you think I should offer them the quilts or just do what I want with them? Somehow I am having a hard time thinking of getting rid of them .

Absolutely offer them to the SIL and/or their children..its the right thing to do.

No brainer....offer them the quilts. Or, send them as gifts and let them know you were thinking about them, remember them fondly, hope they are well.

It's such a good opportunity to show consideration.

Send them as a positive gesture.

You can even include in your note that if they don't wish to keep them, you'd be happy to keep them.


It was a marriage that never really started.
