American Jane

I had been playing with Dick and Jane fabric for a while. I bought some of the panels from one of the quilt shows about 6 months ago. They reminded me of the old Dick and Dora books and John and Betty books that I was brought up on. I just couldn't resist buying them but no matter how I looked at them, I couldn't work out what to do with the 4 pictures per set until I discovered the Punctuation range. The colours and the genre seemed to match perfectly so I bought some of the fabric from Amitie and ordered some more from the Fat Quarter Shop.

After months of messing around, the first quilt top was finally put together. I am not sure that the placement of the colours I chose are all that well balanced but I am relieved that one is finished. I have one more set to do but I need to get some more of the blue stripe. That will happen on Wednesday because Amitie is having a sale. They have fabulous fabric choices and hopefully some of the blue stripe left.


  1. Lovely! I've been looking at this fabric line too, thinking it would make a nice quilt for my daughter who is a new teacher (1st Grade). What do you think?

  2. i have this fabric too, i made a bag from mine, as i am not so good at quilting.
