I tried to find some kind of an upside to this. There isn't one. So sorry that happened :/.
That's awful! Sorry to hear that OP. I've had that kind of thing happen with many things but they were all accidental. You didn't deserve to have that happen to you. Hopefully your mother will come to her senses and realize how ignorant that was, and maybe try to make it up to you someway.
Next gift time give her a $5 receipt to a charity of your choice. If she complains, just remind her of the quilt.
Almost nobody really appreciates handmade crafts unless they also craft. I hardly make anything for family or friends unless I'm specifically asked to. So sorry that happened to you, she really should have handled it better!
I think people appreciate them but don't really appreciate the time and effort that go into them, which is very different. I sure didn't until I stated crocheting and realised how long it took and how much money it took to make large items. And gifting something you've made also takes bravery because if someone rejects it, it's like they're rejecting a piece of you and it sucks.
