Default I need your opinions, please................

A friend asked me to make a quilt for her grandson's college dorm. She had no preferences as to color so I cose dark brown and shades of teal and made Magic Squares from Jenny Doan's tute. The top is not yet quilted but my DH took a look and pronounced it too girly for a young man. I was sure the color choices were fine and I stayed away from flowers and other delicate shapes. What do you think?

I like it and do not think it's girlish. I think the colors would brighten up a dorm room.

For what it's worth, I think it is perfectly fine for a boy. I don't see anything girly about it. The colors are definitely good for a boy. JMHO

What, exactly, is girly about it? I have a DS and a SIL and am betting either one would love a quilt like that.

My DH says you better ask the kid. He thought it was girly, too. I think its stunning. So far the women think its fine and the "boys" don't.

Beautiful non girl quilt! You did a great job. I'm sure the grandma will be very proud to give it to her grandson.

Yes, ask him. It does not look "girly" at all to me and "manly" colors have changed in the last several years, but HE is the one who will be using it.
