Dick & Jane

Thanks to childhood friend SKS who sent me a link to the fabric mecca, Fabric Depot. They have actual Fabric Depot stores where she lives, but they also have a fantastic online selection of Michael Miller, Robert Kaufman, Heidi Grace & my other favorite textile designer's fabric prints. I fell in love with quite a few, but at $4 a yard, this Dick & Jane fabric was a steal! I had originally thought I would create a duvet cover from it, but am considering making an actual quilt and using this for the backing..Easy Duvet vs. Possible Disaster Quilt? I've never made an actual quilt before..but seeing the one our mail lady made, gives me a kick in the pants to TRY one. heck, the fabric was cheap, and wouldn't some cute mod/retro prints make a cute square block front side with the Dick & jane fabric used as backing and binding???Decisions, decisions.
What's a girl to do?
