A long-time friend of mine is expecting her 3rd baby later this month. I decided that the baby should have something special, as he or she will be living in hand-me-downs for ever. Since I don't know if they're having a boy or a girl, I made a unisex quilt. The Dick and Jane fabric is perfect for my friend who just loves these books!





Now the other 2 children want a Dick and Jane quilt!

This is so sweet.  I always wanted something like this for my girls.  Your friend is so lucky!

very cute. I love the fact that one side is more funky and the other more sedate.

So cute!  I love the pinwheels, that's one of my favorite blocks, and the colors are very soothing for naptime, good for a boy or a girl.  I love the dick & jane fabric, you've used it well.

It's GORGEOUS. Like ZumaGirl, the pinwheel is also my favourite block. I love the placement of the blocks against the pale green and the Dick and Jane backing fabric rocks!

Thank you all for your kind words. I am having a serious love affair with Michael Miller Fabrics right now, and the idea of doing another couple of Dick and Jane items for the older children is quite appealing!
