Default Need Ides for Cheerful Fabric Colors

If you were making a quilt that would lift someone's mood. What colors of quilting fabric would you use in the quilt that are considered to be cheerful?

I was going to say yellow also! Blue goes well with yellow. Red is my favorite color. I like a bunch of solid colors of Kona with white Kona background.

Yellows and reds, definitely. Orange could work, but some oranges are just irritating (in my opinion, but I'm not much of an orange person anyway). Bright blues and greens against bright white is a possibility as well.

Brights! Wouldn't matter so much which colors as long as they were bright and vibrant

Bright colors. Especially primary colors.

Do they have a special hobby or a favorite flower?

Happy Daisy quilt comes to mind if they love flowers.

Lots of brightly-colored patterned fabrics, like Kaffe Fasset's designs.

Blue and yellow together says cheerful to me.
