    Pink, Black & Lime Green quilt

    I made this quilt for my DGD's 16th birthday. She picked the colors, and I think she likes it. I'm not so sure I like it. I wish I had done it in the Day & Night pattern. Pink & black with just a hint of lime green. I think the lime sashing is a bit too much. What do you think?Name:  100_1469.jpg

    I like it I think she will love it. My GS wanted a lime green and black, I wasn't up to it but it turned out OK

    It's the colours she wanted so it will be perfect. On my screen the pink looks lavender and it really works with the black and green. Look through a book on antique Amish quilts and you'd see very similar combinations.

    I absolutely love the colors and think it looks great. We are too critical and maybe that isn't really your favorite colors but they are mine and I love it.

    I wish my monitor showed true colors. I see black, purple and kelly green. But I like it either way

    I don't think I would have put those colors together on my own, but they do look pretty finished. Everytime I quilt with my grandchildren.....they decide to put something together so differently than I ever imagined and it looks good each and every time.

    Pretty-Pretty! I too have seen this color combo in Amish quilts. She should be very happy.
