    Hidden Wells. Is this way too bright/gaudy?

    I am making this quilt for my GGD who is 7. What do you think? Is it too bright? I think it is. She will love it now but don't know how she will feel about it when she is 30.

    I dont think it's too bright at all. If she loves it now, she will love it then - some of my favorite things are associated with the memories they bring, even if they are of a style I would never choose NOW - if it was special to me as a kid, it is still special.

    My daughter is 20 and would consider that pretty calm. It's a great quilt and your granddaughter will love it.

    I am a senior citizen and I love it! I think your GGD will love it now and will love and appreciate even more when she's 30. Go for it!

    I believe the colors are wonderful. These are the colors that my GD's age 11 & 12 love, and their bedrooms reflect these colors. Have a great holiday season!

    Thank you. I feel so much better now. I know that I don't have classy tastes and so I am very insecure about my choices. I will continue on and post the completed quilt. Thanks again for your support. Yolanda

    I also don't feel that the quilts I make for my grandkids need to be "bedspreads" or have a room decor designed around them. They can be lap quilts pulled out of a basket, or blankets under a bedspread. The quilt is beautiful to look at!

    It's beautiful! I think when she's 30 she will be able to pass it down to her own daughter.

    She will love it (it's great) and when she's older, she'll remember just how much she loved it when she was younger and cuddling under it. I love the bright colors! Donna

    I made a Hidden Wells quilt about 15 or so years ago. Liked it just fine, but I sure wish I had used the colors you are using! It's beautiful, and I am waaaay over 30! Was actually over 30 when I made mine.

    I love it and I'm in my 70's! Don't worry, just remember that you making it for her will be all she needs!

    She will love it always, even as her style changes as she grows, as it should be. This is a bright and spirited quilt.
    I love it.

    Not too bright, but I really like bold, un-apologetic color in quilts! Colors are very girl...and won't go out of style. She'll love it forever, don't worry!
