    Love the brightness and the placement of your blocks. I always see panels at the store that I admire but just not sure what to do with them.

    I love your color choices M - very cute quilt. Brings up memories of learning to read in 1st grade. It's sad the kids don't get those books anymore! Is this a gift, or are you selling it?

    I have those blocks and thank you for showing me what you did!
    I love Dick and Jane ... I learned to read with those books (of course, my teacher was old fashioned and believed in phonics ) ... and, when Baby Sally showed up, I was THRILLED! LOL
    that was well over fifty years ago, and I have never forgotten ...
    you have done a fine job showcasing your blocks.
    Good show! :wink:

    I just love what you did with your D & J blocks! The primary colors are perfect for it as are the alternate pinwheel blocks.

    Now I think you have done a great job. I have too looked at these panels. I think the pinwheel blocks gives it a vintage look. Thanks for sharing.

    That's cute! and I agree - the primary colours are perfect. we didn't have Dick and Jane in the UK, we had Peter and Susan but I think it was similar. 'Run, Peter run' and the dog always 'looked on'! :D

    LOVE it! The colors you chose and the pinwheel alternate blocks is just perfect. I keep looking at that Dick and Jane fabric, but haven't purchased any yet. Don't have any grandkids yet, but maybe I just ought to make one for ME. I learned to read with those books!

    I don't suppose it was TWEETY and a bird?
    Just FYI - - sixty years ago today (9-16-49) Wile E Coyote and the Roadrunner appeared for the first time.
    Can't tell I am stalling, can you?
    a fish? Named Flip?
    Going in to research mode NOW!

    Sally had a teddy bear named Tim ... didn't want a teddy bear either! :evil:
    the teddy bear isn't the pet you were expecting as an answer, is it?

    I really love it. I did a wall hanging out of a Dick and Jane panel a while back and have it hanging in my sewing room. It's one of my favorite projects.
