    Our church makes quilts for our young Ladies when they leave our Youth Program and enter the Adult, at 18 years old. I am in charge of making the Quilts . I 've been asking the Mom's about the girls favorite colors and styles. Most Mom's would say a color and modern or a color and scrappy . But one Mom just said that her Daughter liked Bright no color as a favorite or style.
    So I'm looking for Bright ideas for a Bright quilt?

    Maybe a black and white with pops of color....red, orange, purple, lime green, electric blue....any one or all. Google black and white quilts and see if something inspires. Do a search here and see what comes up. :)

    D9P would be great with lots of colors, and QUICK if you use 6-1/2 " pieces!

    I made twin baby quilts using the broken dishes pattern.

    Bright gets brighter when you put contrasting colors next to each other Orange next to Green. Purple with Teal Green, Red with Lime, Blue Green with Gold. And use contrasting neutrals of Black and White, rather than beige and cream.
