    I need some ideas. I bought Vegie tales soft book and I want to make a quilt out of it. Does anyone have any ideas. I bought it at fabric.com.

    My friend is just doing that with the "Night Before Xmas". She cut it apart and bordered each section sort of like a "log cabin" affect, but only one border. Then she plans to sash when they are all done. She alternated green and red borders around the blocks. Looking very cute (used Patrick Lose marble material and it is very bright, colorful, christmasy. It is going to be gorgeous.

    Thanks Murphy, I guess I'm going to have to draw it out so I get a visual.

    I made a baby quilt out of a soft book. It works really well. The possibilities are endless.

    Here is a quilt I did from a panel...I am sure you could take any panel pieces and work it into a quilt really easily.

    Off hand, I don't remember if the panel blocks were 9.5 or 12.5, but there is 1.5 inch sashing (green).
