    Hello it is so nice to have you join us. You will love it here. A nine patch quilt square would be a good beginning. Check on You Tube for videos on quilting. You will learn a lot!

    Welcome from SC Texas. You have come to the right place to learn, there is always someone here to answer your questions. For the panels you might start with wall hangings to help you get the feel of quilting on something that is not to large.

    Howdy and welcome, from Texas!

    Depending upon how big the panels are, you could make wall hangings, place mats, or even a lap quilt.
