    I have been collecting "precious" and Cinderella or other Disney classic "girle" fabrics for my 3-yr. old granddaughter. When I visited her this weekind, I discovered that she is excited about Captain America, Magic Cars and Lightening McQueen. What should I do?

    You can post on members buy/sell/ trade and see if anyone has the type you need and trade for the fabric you have.

    I see a reversable quilt in your future. Do the princesses and girly side & the lightening McQueen, Cars side. best of both worlds

    She is three years old, don't fret over what she likes from day to day. Save the fretting when they are 13 and like nothing.

    I like the reversible idea otherwise I would just do the girly one, she'll love it no matter what.

    i would trade the fabric for something to suit her tastes.

    not all girls are girly and waiting for her to become a girly girl might not happen.

    encourage the athletic adventurous aspects of her personality instead of waiting for other traits to develop down the line.
