    Need girly pattern

    My husbands granddaughter, they are out of state and we have see the child twice in her lifetime, even though we know they do visit our state, is 8 years old and a very girly girl. (Exactly what that means I'm not too sure.) I am in need of a girly girl quilt pattern. It has to be reasonably simple to put together and I have til Christmas and lots of time. Her sister's quilt was easy to envision as she plays many instruments and I was able to find a panel that was perfect. What do little 8 year old girly girls like? I'm embarrassed to mention my dilemma to my husband because I get really angry with how his children treat him. It isn't the child's fault her parents are idiots!! Help
    Better to do something imperfectly, than nothing perfectly.

    How about some pinwheels in the 3o's fabrics or DP9 patch in dots and flowers. Pink or purple with lime green are my grand daughters favourite colors

    The daisies are perfect! I was thinking pinks and purples and frills BUT the daisies are much better. It is timeless and she will not be "outgrowing it". I love the colours in this because you don't need to know their favourite colours. I am saving this one because I want to make one too!

    I vote for the daisy quilt also! That's on my to do list. I have some leftover gold minkee that would be great for the center of the flowers. Give it a bit of 3D affect.

    My 9.5 yo DGD loves pink and purple, hearts, butterflies, and baby animals. She likes flowers but when picking out fabric, she zeroed in on the hearts and butterflies . . . and monkeys. LOL

    Girly girls like pretty, fancy, flowers, butterflies,pink, purple on and on, dresses and don't like to get dirty usually nothing boyish.
    Oldest Granddaughter was like that, at 25 she likes anything stylish and still loves to dress to the nines when A special event arises.
