    When I don't have a long haired black cat sleeping on my bed anymore I'll get it quilted.
    I don't have a pic of that one on my computer. I'll have to look thru my old camera cards and see if there's one on one of them. I remember taking pics of it. Otherwise you'll have to wait until I dig the quilt out and clean the bed off.

    A scrapy quilt using prints in shades of pink and lavender. I used pyramid style blocks once and it looked nice especially using a darker pink border which pops the pinks blocks.
    A cat or dog(which ever she likes)quilt and they can be made in colors of pink.

    I have two grandaughters and their personalities are completely different so their style preferences are also different. I try to make quilts to reflect their personality. What colour is their room painted? What colours do they like to wear? Perhaps a pastel pink/purple would suit them or maybe a vibrant colour would be better. I think you have to look at the whole picture rather than gender.

    How about a Victorian Crazy Quilt with lots of lace and ribbon and embroidery?

    I made a fan quilt with pinks and lace, also a rail fence with pinks to lavenders.Very feminine.I agree with everyone else, I think it's about the colors.

    Hearts are also 'girley". You can find them in both pieced or applique.

    Lace, flowers and/or ruffles are never on boy/manly quilts. Maybe even scallops.

    The colors are the primary thing that makes a quilt masculine or feminine ... after that, I think curves are more feminine and straight-lines and 90 degree angles are more masculine. So, stars, chinese coins, bento boxes = masculine, Dresden fan, drunkard's path, wedding circle = feminine. Storm-at-sea can be either as it's straight elements form a curve and the angles are half 90/45 and half 90/60/30.

    I recently made a baby girl quilt for my new grand-daughter. My DDIL wanted pink, white and black. To make it more "girly" I put a pink ruffled edge all aroung it instead of binding it the regular way. (I bought a Bernina ruffler foot...works great!)

    Find the most beautiful colors and make a D9P. Make the backing out of a elegant neutral so when she's older (ie: college), she can just flip it over for a less "girlie" look.

    I'm somewhat new here. I assume a 9P means 9 patch, but what is a D9P?

    I love all these ideas, but the first block that came to my mind was a very feminine version of a sunbonnet sue my mother made as a pillow for me. She is very Victorian looking, carrying a parasol and all in pink, both like and dark with a rose colored background and lace! I definitely want to see pics on what you end up making when its done!

    am currently working on a colonial lady quilt-she looks like sun bonnet sue as her face doesnt show.her gown is off her shoulders and skirt to the ground,a parasol above her head to the left.she is gorgeous and the only fabric i bought new was the sashing as i didnt have the right shade of rose to put it together.she could be done in shades of pink......
