    finally going to make a girly quilt for a special baby girl. Not a baby quilt but one she can use forever. Mom loves purple and the babys name is Flora so am looking for suggestions of a line of fabrics that contains floral and purples all shades. I looked at amy butler but was looking for something softer.

    There has been a great range of purple pansies here in recent months, but I'm sorry, I don't know the manufacterer. They were in three sizes, the smallest were about half an inch across.

    Violetta from Debbie Beaves (RJR fabrics) is beautiful.

    RJR has a couple lines out -- Shasta Daisy is a little funky, and Violet Wishes is very feminine.

    Moda has a line called Nature's Notebook which is also very nice.
