A lot of them like black. Are they boys or girls? Music themes, sports, cars, T- shirt quilts. How old are they?

Helps to know what they like or dislike. I have granddaughters in their teens. None seem to like pink, but purples or blues go over big. Here's one I made for the DGD who likes purple and Japanese things. It was simple to make and she loves it!

Not happy with the way I did the picture, but don't know how to make it bigger. Suggestion anyone?? It's from my WebShots album.

With teens, I would involve them in the fabric or pattern selection.

I am totally new to quilting but am not new to teens! LOL ;) With teens, especially girls, I would take them to the fabric store with you so they can pick the fabric themselves. Two reasons for this: #1, teen girls can be a tad picky and you want them to really like it after you spend all that time and #2, you can let them see all the cool possibilities so that maybe they can get an appreciation for sewing themselves :) There are just not enough young people sewing these days :(
