If you want to totally surprise someone with a quilt how do you choose the colors?
I want to surprise my mom with a lap quilt for her birthday. She is 78, she is simple, doesn't have a decorating style, and will probable just LOVE anything I make.
I made 2 quilts for me, they are bight and bold. I like them that way. This gift will be my 3rd. I bought a jelly-roll and 20 fat quarters in soft pretty blues, greens, oranges. Should I use these colors for her or go with what I would want in my house? I do want try these colors.
