    I think it's perfect for a baby!!!!!!!!!! You did a wonderful job and my guess is the baby will enjoy it more than pastels.
    Babies love bright!! :D:D
    Congratulations on your new DGD!! :D:D

    I was all about the bright/darker colors for my daughters. They had very little pastel colors when they were babies. So far they seem just fine ;) LOL! I think it is a beautiful quilt, perfect for a new baby, and I am sure your granddaughter will LOVE it!!

    Fabulous quilt. Babies love bright colors so it should fit right in. It will be loved for a long, long time. Great job and I love the butterflies.

    I never make baby quilts in "traditional" colors, so of course I love yours! Babies love bright bold colors and I am predicting this will be a favorite for many years!

    Now it's not just a baby quilt, it can be a toddler quilt, a tween quilt, etc. It's quite lovely. I don't use just pastels when I make my grandchildren baby quilts and they love them.

    I made the same pattern for my granddaugter who just turned 9. I made her a quilt for her double bed. She just loved it. You did a great job and it is a quilt that they will keep forever.

    It is gorgeous. The last few baby showers I have gone to for the younger mothers seem to have more bright colors and less pastels.

    It's gorgeous! Babies love strong visual contrast. Smart to put the name so large and prominent, so when she drags it to preschool, it doesn't get swiped!

    The bright colors will probably attract the babys eye. It looks very nice. I am sure you will "see" something different every time you look at it.

    I like the striking colors! They are fine for a baby, and she won't stay a baby for long! It's beautiful!
