    I fell in love with this fabric and it has a large design so I thought it would be good for a pizzazz quilt but when I put it together I feel like maybe it was too busy. I showed it to my DH before I had it quilted and didn't ask for an opinion but the first words that come out of his mouth was "That's the prettiest quilt you have ever made". His birthday was the next week so guess what he got for his birthday. However, I would still like to hear your opinions

    I also think it's pretty. Not at all too much pizzazz.

    That quilt is just right in every way... and it's perfect that it will end up in your husband's lap. Perfect all the way around.
