    This is from a future Benartex group called "Baby Geniuses Speak Out".

    These two are really different - I'm a little bit stumped as just how you would use them.

    Any ideas?

    Love the colors. I think I would ignore the wording and go for the color. It could maybe used in a "manners" quilt??

    Good backing for a kid's quilt?

    honestly...i would never use those. i prefer to speak to my kids with my voice...

    the only thing i can imagine using those for is like a fabric "thank you" card type thing...and even then, i'd only fussy cut one two sayings...

    the colours are fantastic and vibrant...the sayings...ehhh, not so much.

    It makes me think of my friend who is an aide in a special ed class. I could see her making something for the kids or for the teacher. They bend over backwards to be encouraging and supportive to the kids in her class, so that fabric would be perfect.

    But I don't know if I could see her buying yards and yards of it.

    P.S. Could be good for a preschool, too. Maybe floor pillows, aprons, napkins...

    The only thing I can think of is backing, too!

    What about placemats, the words would be right there in front of whoever to read then! Or a children quilt for praising them on a good job! :)

    I like the colors, but it's not something I would purchase. Sorry. :oops:
