    I think you will be able to divide up your 1st and 2nd panels, and the 3rd will be gorgeous if you just frame and quilt it. Or you could probably combine the 2nd and 3rd into one large quilt.

    The other option, if you have a panel that you really don't care for, is to use it on the quilt back. (I wouldn't do that with your panels - they're front-of-the-quilt worthy.)

    Be sure to show us what you create from these.
    Thank you - your quilt is really pretty. Afraid I have not progressed past squares(4,9 patch). My avatar is my only one that is something different, I tried which was fussy-cut w/borders. Will have to check out some (simply) different blocks to try.

    Try the book 9 patch pizazz. Our WalMart recently got fabric back in and they have the coordinating fabric for the last panel.

    Sometimes cutting apart the panel doesn't work well, as it wasn't printed 100% straight with the grain. Had a nice result just adding several coordinated borders with cornerstones to the panel. I shadowed quilted around the scenes of the panel. Belive the panel was called "summer nights northern lights" or something like that. Did something similar for a quick baby quilt too.

    I have the same garden panel - and plan to sew log cabin blocks around it to create a radiating affect. It is for my 89 year old "Mommy" and I plan to add this to the quilt label.

    (Please note - I did not write this - alas, have had it so long that I cannot give credit to the author....but I think that it's just beautiful and will be perfect for the quilt!)


    My mother kept a garden,
    a garden of the heart,
    She planted all the good things
    that gave my life its start.

    She turned me to the sunshine
    and encouraged me to dream,
    Fostering and nurturing
    the seeds of self-esteem.

    And when the winds and rains came,
    she protected me enough~
    But not too much - she knew I'd need
    to stand up strong and tough.

    Her constant good example
    always taught me right from wrong~
    Markers for my pathway
    that will last a lifetime long.

    I am my mother's garden,
    I am her legacy~
    And I hope today she feels the love
    reflected back from me.
