    This is so vibrant and cheerful, the colors go well together. I love the field of flowers on the back. This certainly would be a focal point in draped prominently in any room, would start a lot of conversations and lots of touching and admiring! Many times the objections are to not wearing the color combinations but when included in a quilt, it's amazing how people can be won over!

    I love your quilt, it is beautiful. I to remember the match rules. I had dressed for school in a pretty red skirt and pink sweater and was told to go change I could not go out in pink and red. I was about nine years old but I never forgot how bad I felt.

    She's a beauty.
    Home is where the heart is, and a few scrappy quilts.

    Oh, I'd be up for that scrap (isn't that another name for a fight?)! I love this quilt... so cheerful! And the fabrics kind of remind me of the 50's (I was just a mere pup back then... LOL!). This is fabulous! That pattern sounds like a really good one. Did you like using it?

    A couple of years ago when pink & brown were such a hot combo? It reminded me of a girl in my grade school. She had a brown & pink dress that all the other little girls thought was ghastly. I was fascinated by it. So, either I'm weird (hey... no comments from the Peanut Gallery!) or way ahead of my time! To this day, I never see a pink & brown quilt that I don't think of Lilly's dress.

This will probably end up being a charity quilt at some point. I have about 6 or 7 ready to gift someone.
    I hear ya! I was thinking just the same thing tonight. I'm working on a "Jelly Roll Race" for a friend using a jelly roll that is so out of my comfort zone it ain't even funny. But I'm enjoying using it & actually kinda like the quilt. Some people seem to get more set in their ways as they age but for some reason, I feel like I'm expanding my horizons.

    This would make a fabulous charity quilt... so cheerful... back & front!

    I agree with EVERYTHING you said! And I loved what you said about your mom being proud of your passion. That's what really matters in the end, isn't it?

    Love it! I remember when I first got into quilting ... had the hardest time grasping the concept of coordinating colors and not fabric prints.

    Such a happy quilt. There should never be restrictions to fabric choices.

    I can't imagine anyone not approving of the combination of this quilt, it's just so joyful!
