    You might make one narrow "stopper" border of white or black, then a border of random lengths of strips of fabric similiar to colors in this panel. A piano key border would work well, too.

    Agreed! I love the idea of it also being a learning tool.

    The more I think about it, the more I like this idea.

    I agree with Julie and Jan . Also, the design is not planned with enough space around the letters to allow for 1/4" seams to be taken away. The letters might looked cramped. A little tyke might love his quilt to pieces, literally, so fewer seams could be a plus in this case.

    I agree to just leaving it as a panel and adding borders- You can always do alot of stitch in the ditch at their block "seams" which would give it more of an apprearance that you pieced it. I'm thinking this would make it pretty heavily quilted, maybe do some of them with decorative stitches -

    Why not cut it up and find something that begins with that letter.. A- apple B- boat and C- car and so on.. square them up log cabin style or scrappy.. Im not OCD but I really don't like that A isn't first on the top..

I think if you will not lose any of the lettering cut it up and add different color sashing to each block to make them all the same size. I have 1 of these panels and that is what I will be doing with it.
    My thoughts exactly.

    is the horizontal line printed straight. If so then i would quilt horizontally. If not, then look at it and see if you can do a straight quilting line between the blocks but zig zag down. straight down on one block, across the bottom and then straight.....This is a possibility that might make some interesting dimension to the quilt and preserve the printed panel.
