Look for a mauve pink and yellow floral with green leaves in the background. You could use it for the focus fabric in a Warm Wishes quilt.

Find a quilt kit that you really like and emulate it with her colors.

This one comes close: http://www.craftsy.com/supplies/kit/...quilt-kit/1978. Kind of spendy. I don't know your budget.

This one has some blue, but really cute:

This KIT doesn't have the colors, but the pattern would lend itself well to using those 3 colors. Just get a bunch of each and go.

OR-OR-OR

If you have kit sites that you like, ask her to look at some of the kits and tell you some things she likes. Maybe she would go outside of her color scheme for some things she might like.

Love the cover quilt on the issue of Love of Quilting Sept/Oct 16. You would have to add a couple rows to make it Queen size, but it is a nice pattern.

I would look for your focus fabric with those colors first. You might check out Shabby fabrics (online) because those colors sound like something like shabby chic fabric. I agree with Tartan that Warm Wishes can make an attractive quilt. For larger quilts, I enlarge the center square to 8.5" cut square. There is such a variety you can do with this pattern to make this quilt work for you.
