    I'm making a donation quilt for our grandkids' school silent auction. I agonized over a pattern, then chose this "twisted 9 patch". I wanted to mix up the colors all over it. Have I gone too far??

    I've got all the squares made and joined into groups for QAYG. My plan after that is to add a white-on-white border, a colored border (one of the colors from the patches) and then another WOW border.

    I don't want to be embarrased or to embarrass the kids with an "ugly" quilt! :roll:

    What do you think?? :thumbup: :thumbdown: :thumbup: :thumbdown: :?:

    I think it is great. Love the colors. I think a white border and then a dark purple border would be pretty. Do you know what your Wow border is going to be?

    I mean this in the nicest way possible, but I honestly think that there is no saving this quilt, the only thing you can do now is just send it to me and start over :-D :-D :-D :-D

    I love it!!! I think your mix of colors makes it fun and keeps the eye moving through the quilt. I would not change a thing.

    Colors are great-you did a nice job. You should be proud of it. I'd be bragging if it was mine!
