    I've had this fabric for awhile trying to decide what to do with it. I finally decided to go bright and cheery with primary colours plus green. I have more motifs left over and I think the next one will be more vintage looking.

    It's perfect. I've seen that fabric many times and always envisioned it in a primary colored quilt. I'm glad someone with the skills did the job.

    Look, Dick, look. See Jane quilt?

    I think it's great in the primary colors! Dick and Jane were in primary books so what better way than the bright colors! Great job!

    Beautiful quilt, Mamagus. I like the D&J fabric and the bright colors look great with it. I saw a pic of another D&J quilt on another forum and was going to give a link to it BUT I can't find it now.

    BTW, is that an Ed Roche painting I see-looks like the King's Cove one--just today,I was looking at his website!!! Is K's Cove one of your favorite areas?

    I think it is absolutely darling. Love the primary colors...it somehow seems so appropriate.

    yes it is an Ed Roche. Kings Cove circa 1910. In our house we call it Pat Murphy's Meadow because of the folksong, but for obvious copyright reasons, Ed couldn't use that name! My husband and I had one of our first dates in that meadow! And I bought the print for him for our first Christmas together.

    I am going to do free motion quilting in the pinwheels and around the white part of the picture blocks and crosshatching on the red and yellow border blocks.

    Maybe I can find this fabric and make a lap quillt for the library.

    I was a first grade teacher and am reminded of my little ones when I see the fabric. Although I did use those books myself as a first grader. Now that is really dating myself! The big book that the teacher used was given to me when the school was "cleaning out the book room" in 1980. The copyright date on it was 1940. That was my year of birth.

    My LQS received several bolts of the D & J fabric. I don't know what I'll do with it, but I purchased 2 yards of each one. Every now and then, I take it out just to look at it. I'm having a hard time deciding to cut it up. Perhaps I could just throw it over a rod and let it hang there for me to admire. :lol:

    I feel really protective over my fabric as well... It is a special memory. I salvaged several Dick and Jane books from my old school when it shut down.

    I still get a stab when I look at the story where Jane gets THREE dolls for her birthday! And Father all dressed in his suit was always going to funerals (in my mind!) Cultural and socioeconomic differences transcend the generations even today!
