    Dick and Jane

    A few years ago I bought a Dick and Jane panel to cut into blocks and make a quilt. Has anyone done one? I'm having trouble coming up with a design and thought a few ideas from someone else might inspire me. Photos?? That wold be even better!! Thanks so much!

    I taught my friend to quilt using the panels. I don't have a picture to show but we didn't do anything fancy, just sashing around each square and a simple border.

    Here are some ideas via Google images - some using the panel and some using the coordinating D&J fabrics:

    I've done 2 one I used red background with black shadows and the other (not quite finished) I did out lines around them and staggered the panels for the stories.-tried to add pics but kept failing

    Quilters have the best sense of humor, we keep everyone in stitches
