Sometime requested colors can be a challenge and force us to work outside of our comfort zone! The Shakespeare in The Park quilt was made for my nephew's HS graduation who requested black and khaki! This was as close as I could make myself go there!!
His sister requested sky blue, hot pink and lime green for hers!!
When I gave it to her I had to laugh because it was an exact match to her tee shirt!
I remember seeing a photo of your niece's quilt. It is beautiful.
My nephew's request was for LIME green and black. I started collecting fat quarters here and there, but couldn't bring myself to use just lime greens.
I didn't want to put a lot of work into a quilt that he would get tired of quickly, so my collection includes a variety of greens along with blacks and grays. Now I need to decide on a pattern. Originally I just wanted to do quick and easy, but I really like more interesting patterns. I love stars, so naturally I like the Shakespeare pattern. (I ordered Judy's book after I read your post. )
Here's another pattern I just saw recently from Primitive Gatherings:http://www.primitivegatherings.us/shop/index.php?act=viewProd&productId=9587
Now I'm just trying to decide if I want to press forward full steam ahead to get the quilt done for my nephew's birthday at the end of July or procrastinate longer and make it for his college graduation in two years!
