    It is realy hard to work on a project that isn't totaly your cup-o-tea. I had to make a quilt with race cars and B&W checked flags once. Never again! That said, you did a fabulous job. I love this pattern and the simple quilting works great with the busy fabric. Not all the quilting has to show up. It has a nice soft look to it. I like it very much. You can congratulate yourself now.

    Ooooh... I love this (& I'm not a lover of purple either, tho my DIL just loves it)! I think it has a vintage-y, shabby chic feel to it. I love the pattern & your quilting is really superb. I'm sure your customer is over the moon over this beautiful quilt!

    I think it looks very pretty on the bed. I'm sure your customer will love it even if the color scheme was not your taste. Peggy

    I think your quilt came out wonderfully. The pattern layout is great as are your fabric choices. You have no control over your client's color choices. Saying that, I think you did an excellent job on something you really didn't have your heart into. Thanks for sharing. I'm sure your client will love it.

    I don't usually care for the drunkards path in its usual arrangement, but I do like the around the world you have done here. Very nice. and the appliqued hearts give it a fun something different also. I love it.

    I know what you mean about working on a project where you don't like the fabric.

    The quilt is very pretty, though. Great job!

    It is beautifully made and quilted. I like vibrant purples and agree with you about Lavendar! It is a tad insipid.
    Despite this difficultyyou did a great job. Congratulations!!!

    I like lavender when it looks this good! You certainly spiced it up a bit with the heart shapes! It's a wonderful quilt! I could even be convinced to paint my room lavender if I had this quilt to put in it!

    Beautiful job even if you didn't like working with those colors.
    I love the colors.

    I agree. The quilt is very pretty.

    I agree! I'm not into lavender either, but this came out beautifully!
