    I think it is beautiful and if they don't like it you can send it my way.

    It turned out fabulous. The little sparks of color add just enough demension and interest. Very contemporary.

    Love the quilt and the colors! I don't know much about quilting but I would think some thing angular to go along with it's modern design would work. Post another picture when you have decided and finished.

    You really have created this with your 'artist's eye' for color. It is just stunning. I lalso like how you have varied the widths of your strips.

    I've got a pick up sticks quilt on my bucket list. I've always seen it done with a plain white or cream background. I'm re-thinking it now.

    MaryKatherine, normally I am not a fan of 'modern' quilting but I do have to say I LOVE yours. I think it is your use of thin lines and the colors you used. Many modern quilts use a lot of white and/or grey but I love your use of bright colors. Great job. Wow!

    Terrific combination of colors and "straws" of contrasting colors. Your son will be so proud of this design...

    I love the random pops of color. They remind me of pixie sticks.

    I don't usually like these kind of quilts but I really really like this one. I think it is the fine lines and the colors you used. Very Very nice
    SMILE- it will make everyone wonder what you are up to.
    Stay strong and keep looking up.

    Love it - a lot of the modern quilts are done with just straight line quilting. Look out at the Modern Quilt guild and see if you get any ideas.
