    These are some GREAT ideas Ladies. I always find google images comes up with some wonderful pictures. But my favorite so far is sak658. It is awesome! Love the quilt board. You Ladies and Gents are always so helpful! Good Luck terri bb, that sure is a pretty panel. Also agree, I like the idea of adding in a bit of black also.

    I used Bonnie Hunter's strip twist pattern (free on www.Quiltville.com) using colors from a nature panel for DH's quilt. It worked great.

    Smile measure the panel first

    Just make sure whatever you do that the blocks you use will match within the size of the panel. Once I didn't check my panel size and I had already cut the fabric that I wanted to use and I had a heck of a time adjusting to the size of the panel. So now I always check the size of the panel and adjust my block size from there.

    Hope you post a photo of the finished quilt. I love seeing what others do with their panels.

    Have a great day quilting

    This is going to be a nice quilt!
    When I first looked at the panel and your fabric choices.. I'm thinking, a bit of camo fabric in the colors of the panel would be a neat outside border. Just a thought.

    I like the suggestion that AnitaSt gave.... the log cabin block really focus the panel well. And I LOVE the colors you've chosen.... good job... and don't forget to keep us all posted.

    I like the log cabin blocks that AnitaST showed. That is teriffic. I did my deer quilt with a tea leaf and tulip pattern. You can look at it by clicking on my name and clicking on it in my latest threads started. I'd send you a link but, I don't know how. I also like the idea of a French braid border with some solid borders separating it. Good luck!!!
    Be the best that you can be at everything you do.

    Look up "Paws in the Wild" on Craftsy. It uses a panel. I bought the pattern I liked it so much.

    I would use colors picked from the panel.
