My daughter is a girly-girl - she loves pink and purple, fairies and unicorns. But sewing pink and purple all the time can get boring, and I like to break away from the stereotypes occasionally. Browsing online in Fat Quarter Shop, Ella & Ollie by Fig Tree Quilts for Moda Fabrics caught my eye.

Ella & Ollie fabric collection from Moda - lovely quilting cotton with flower patterns in yellow, green, orange and apricot - perfect for quilting or girls clothing.

Ella & Ollie has colours like Strawberry, Apricot, Seaglass and Daisy and gives a splash of colour for Spring without being too over-the-top. There are floral prints that have a slight vintage feel, like Meadow:

Daisy Rings just makes me think of making daisy chains:

Buttercup is a little different from the standard flower prints:

Posies has an heirloom, vintage feel to it:

And Clover Fields is a lovely small print that would look adorable on a girl's dress:

There's also the Text print, with memories of Spring  plus the alphabet and numbers:

Turkey Tracks, Bias Ticking and Solids are the basics that round out the collection.

I love that the prints have a feminine vibe, but aren't traditional girl colours. The collection would be beautiful for a quilt, dresses or skirts.

You can be girly without pink and purple!
