I just finished stitching this Sexy Hexy Love Quilt (it's a free Amy Butler quilt pattern) using some Dick and Jane fabrics along with some other misc. stuff.
I bought the Dick and Jane fabric before Fidget was even born, maybe 6 or 7 years ago. I
love this fabric, I remember reading my mom's old Dick and Jane reader when I was little. Great bright colors, and wonderful little illustrations.
And these kids playing...
Plus, it's pretty cheeky fabric.
I used a black fabric with teeny dots for the back, and you can really see how I quilted with straight lines to follow along with the hexagon pattern. I almost wish I had added more lines, but this is just a cuddly couch quilt for myself, and I was ready to call it done after this much quilting.
I attached the binding by machine, and it turned out okay but I'm not completely happy with it. I may end up taking off the binding and re-stitching it, finishing by hand. But, for right now, it makes a pretty fine couch quilt!
