    Boy do I need some input ! I have purchased quite a few panels & have no idea how to incorporate them into a quilt pattern. I would rather not cut them into sections. Any ideas will be greatly appreciate - TIA

    Use the panel as a center and then add borders until you get the size you like. This link is a baby quilt I just finised
    with a center type panel.

    Type in panels or similar words combos in the search here on this board., I had asked this question several months ago and had some very good replies.

    I've done several Panel quilts by just adding borders of small blocks like pinwheels or checkerboard strips.I put a plain border around the panel then the smaller blocks, then an outer border or two depending on how big I want the quilt.

    Those are very cool panels. Here's a picture of the only quilt I've made from a panel. I had originally planned to cut the panel into pieces and distribute them throughout the quilt, but that idea went out the window when I saw that there were no straight edges to divide up the panel's pieces.
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-24578-1.htm

    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.
