Lots of cute girl fabrics out there. Do you know what colors she wants? I have seen winnie-the-pooh fabrics, butterfly fabrics, fairy fabrics. And they are not only in just pink, but purples, yellows, greens. There is lots to choose from.

I made a Bento Box quilt in fabrics from the Robert Kaufman Roses collection. I used the pink paisley, a cream that has taupe roses on it, a cream that has pink roses and green leaves, and a green paisley. Then I quilted it in hearts and leaves.

This one is on my future project list and it's a good design for a little girl to grow into.

I have a problem doing pink and floral fabrics, so I would just do fabrics that might appeal to girls (some suggested above). I would think about a tumbling blocks in purples.

One of my favorites is Spring Splash from McCall's Quilts - its a free pattern - very quick and easy.

Check out Moda Bakeshop for some inspiration. Here's a link for the baby/kids section:

I made the pinwheels for my granddaughter. It's a pretty and easy pattern

Lucky Stars is a versatile pattern

This one is just circles appliqued on square background.

D9P is one of my favorites

I love the pinwheel and have always wanted to make it. I was also thinking of something with circles. Thanks for the ideas!

Warm Wishes is a good simple pattern, just use girly prints and colors.
