During the summer I pieced this quilt top !!

The pattern is Turning Twenty Again.. Now the problem. Everyone wants it and my daughter and i have different opinions on how it should be quilted...

she says flowers, twigs, swirls and the backing black...

I say... just a all over design because it so busy.. with gray or yellow backing...
and the neighbors say feather the whole thing.... :)

This is where you all come in... My daughter says if you go with her idea's, then she should get the quilt.. !!!

If you go with mine then i will keep it.. ha ha ha

Okay Ladies and gents.. It is now open to you.. :)

I have two pic's...
So...

You shouldn't have told us who wanted what if you wanted it fair! It is very busy so I do think the more simple quilting will look nice. I like the idea of a gray back.

I think flowers in the larger squares with simple quilting everywhere else. I would go with the yellow or gray backing. I think black would make it look to formal or heavy.

This is a very very busy quilt. I personally don't like this pattern because of how busy it is, so the simplest design is best. Backing i think since it is all bright colors should be grey to calm it down and an edge to edge design would fit best...IMHO

Pls don't hate me :-( any of you...lol
