    I always let my grandkids and kids pick their colors. The oldest DGD picked pink kitties when she was 4 or 5. Then at 12 or 13 it was aqua and brown. Recently she asked me if I would like to make her another quilt to watch TV with ... this one is purple and aqua. She has a long way to go as she is only 15. But I love doing the quilts. In fact all 4 of the DGDs love picking out their different colors

    Kids like bright!! And that is bright. Actually it kinda grows on you the more you look at it. I think you did a great job. But, more important is if your daughter liked it.

    It's a wonderful quilt! Great job. I'm sure DD will be very happy with it. Kids just love bright colors. They are very cheerful.

    Definately the colors a 15 yr. old would choose. Your work is great but I can understand the teary eyes. For me it would be a migraine for sureShe will grow up and ask how you could have allowed her to have such colors...That will be her first taste of what parenthood is all about...LOL
