    She will always treasure your trust in her and your time with her. Just enjoy and do not break her spirit. Appreciate her for who she is and what she likes. I think it is great.

    10 years from now she will remember who made her what she liked with love in her heart (you) I doubt she will ever toss it. It is a beauty and I like the colors. and I am an old woman. Will always look nice folded over a chair or someplace special. (((hugs))) to you for allowing your DD dream to become true :)

    When she looks back in 10 years she will remember how much her mother loved her and made this wonderful quilt because it was what DD wanted. :-)

    I have a crocheted afghan that my mother and GM made for me when I was 12. I decided I didn't like it at 19, and took it back home to mum. I am so glad that I left it at home until AFTER my house burnt down, and it is now on my sons bed in winter, or on the couch when he is not feeling well. It has woll from just about every jumper knitted in my family from those years. I love it, and I snuggle into when I am in need of comfort. It is like having their arms around me.
    And I love that quilt - those colours are great. :-D

    In ten years, she is going to remember that you thought enough of her opinion to let her have one, and you followed through on what she decided.
    You have shown her that you can tolerate a difference of choices, and whether you can appreciate it or not, you have taught your strong-willed daughter that she has a right to an opinion and that when she makes a decision, there is a reaction to it.
    In ten years, she will look at that quilt and love her choices as much as the day she picked them out.
    And, if her tastes have changed (or, more likely) her needs call for a different solution, you may find her quilting a different pattern with much the same colors.
    I like the quilt. Maybe I wouldn't have thought to put those colors together, but they look just fine ... and, while green is not one of my first choices for a color on anything other than grass for my cattle - - the shade she selected looks perfect to me!
