My DD asked me to make this quilt for her B'day. She picked out most of the fabric, the pattern is from Quilt Magazine Feb/Mar issue page 14 (Sweet Girly Girl) We made pillows to coordinate and are working on a bed skirt and quilted shams also.She didn't get to see the quilt until her party,but i did let her see a pillow each day until her b'day to pacify her.She lets me know quite often how much she loves her new quilt. She wants her walls aqua with a lime green accent wall, I'm not sold on it yet, i like the neutral taupe she has now.

I love the quilt and the pillows-you did a fabulous job! I think the walls would be awesome in the aqua with a lime accent. My 4 year old has orange and purple walls-it's only paint :-)

Really Sweet!! I really like the pinky-coral pillow (that's how I'm seeing it) That would also rock as an accent wall.

Most tweens or teens love bright colors, must be in their genes!! As someone else said, it is only paint! :D :D The quilt is lovely and all those accents will make this room a showcase. Her friends will envy her. :-D

Great job - what fun! And I can think of no way better to highlight it than with those aqua walls. Love the pillow with the stripped bow.
When my daughters were that age, we repainted their rooms at least once a year to match their moods as they grew. My husband was convinced we were putting so much paint on the walls that we were losing square footage. The phase passes eventually.

Beautiful job! Aww... paint the walls. Believe me, if you don't she'll never let you forget it! LOL. BUT if you do, just think what you can say to her down the road when she is a parent... "Remember that odious colour you wanted your room painted? I went along with that..."
