Oh wow this was wonderful! Absolutely adorable! I really, really enjoyed this. And no, I can't complain about the length because Iloloved every minute of it! Hobbits are just wonderful.
Well done on this really lovely piece! :)

Good one-shot story.

Although this story may have fluff, as you say, I thought it was still an interesting tale-within-a-tale story. Quilts are nothing new to me, as I've grown up sewing them and helping those who quilt or sew. So, I could relate very well to this story, and to me the discretion didn't make much of a difference, as I treated this as any other good tale, which worked out in the end. Also, Belladonna finding a way to get Bungo out of the house was clever and funny. In a way, I'm glad Frodo asked Bilbo how he ended up with the worn, aged quilt. I'm agreeing with Frodo, as I wonder what else is at Bag End that has a story.

Good work. Mind if I put this story in my community?

P.S. About the series of one-shots called Games in Middle-earth, that you plan on writing, that does sound like an intriguing idea. Of course, if you're thinking about sports that aren't around during the Third Age of Middle-earth, or even the Fourth Age, Dwarves playing rugby is a good idea, but the tale revolving with them might be amusing to read. Cricket could be another sport the Middle-earth peoples could play... maybe Hobbits or Men. I'm not sure about the Elves... that's about all I can think of, as far as sports or games come, so far.

My mother used to love, and was very good at, making quilts. The cot quilts she made for my friends' children continued to have a role in games as tents etc. long after they had grown out of cots, so this seems especially well observed to me.

if there is the loss of a child, I can't find it.( your author notes.) what I do find is a sweet story about a young bilbo baggins' quilt.

First of all, I love the blessing/benediction that you bestowed upon your grandmother at the very beginning. Allow me to echo your sentiments.

I love this. It's a darling bit of fluff, and I'm sure that Bag End was full of those sorts of little things.

I'd love to read a story like that, but I don't really have any game suggestions.

I like stories like this. It is peaceful and quiet. I like how Bilbo tells frodo the story about his old quilt.
