    Hidden Wells. Is this way too bright/gaudy?

    I am making this quilt for my GGD who is 7. What do you think? Is it too bright? I think it is. She will love it now but don't know how she will feel about it when she is 30.

    I dont think it's too bright at all. If she loves it now, she will love it then - some of my favorite things are associated with the memories they bring, even if they are of a style I would never choose NOW - if it was special to me as a kid, it is still special.

    My daughter is 20 and would consider that pretty calm. It's a great quilt and your granddaughter will love it.

    I am a senior citizen and I love it! I think your GGD will love it now and will love and appreciate even more when she's 30. Go for it!

    I believe the colors are wonderful. These are the colors that my GD's age 11 & 12 love, and their bedrooms reflect these colors. Have a great holiday season!

    Thank you. I feel so much better now. I know that I don't have classy tastes and so I am very insecure about my choices. I will continue on and post the completed quilt. Thanks again for your support. Yolanda

    I think it's great and she will too because you made it for her.
