Default Red, White and Blue suggestions, please

I have friends expecting their 1st baby on July 4th, which is also my birthday. That makes this little girl extra special to me. I want to make her a quilt with RW&B but I want to make it kind of feminine. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks,
Fredda aka sewfriendly

Maybe add eyelet lace somewhere in the quilt. Lace always softens the look.

Big rick rack is also a nice addition!

What about a flower/hexie quilt? Like the one at the below link, only in the right colors.

pinwheels are always nice for babies.

I like the idea of pinwheels too. You might consider working a floral print in that color way into the quilt. Polka dots are also cute and might be easier to find in red white and blue.

I saw a cute simple quilt of just strips of red and blue with smaller white strips in between. You could then applique large white flowers with red or blue centers over the stripes. You could incorporate ric rac as the flower stems and lace around the border if you like.

Use some gathered strips, or puffing in between rows. Scallop or ruffle around the edges works too.
