    I like it! Bright & cheerful, though I can see how it might be a bit hard to work on at close range.

    Nice job! :)

    That's when you get some tan dye and take the edge off it. LOL

    Actually, I think it's very pretty just the way it is.

    She'll say Mom made it just like I wanted because she loves me. It is a very colourful and cheery quilt.

    I"m 77 and I love it. She will either be ready to hide it under a bed spread, or she will put it on the sofa and brag about it. Don't worry about it, she will always know it was HER idea, and that you made it with love. It'll wind up as an heirloom.

    Modern, colorful, abstract! If she likes it now she will still like in 10-20-30 years from now. People usually choose their style when they are very young, in my experience.

    Nice work!

    I love it! It looks very much like what I would have picked out back in the 70's when I was 15.... Peace signs and bright colors!

    Very nice! She still will love in ten years, because you made it for her.

    Love it! DD will love it always. She may look at it later and laugh but she will always remember "Mom made the way I wanted". That's the best part.

    I love how you quilted the daisy pattern around the circles. It's great.

    She will think just as we do when we look at something someone was nice enough to do or give up. That is what makes great memories... She will say "I remember when Mom made this for me..." She will love it 20 yrs from now! Looks great
