    Does anyone know of a website that offer fabric panels? I offered to make 4 to 6 quilts for the hospice I volunteer at.
    They will be used in the last hours of a patients life. I really believe they would make a sad experience for the fa,ily a bit more peaceful if there loved one was covered with a quilt than a hospital sheet.
    I thought if I could find suitable Panels I could use them as the center and put quilt squares around it with a solid border.
    I went to Joanne's the only place to buy fabric around here. What a disappointment. No Panels, no fabric with angels or peace doves.
    Any ideas would be appreciated . Unfortunitly cost has to be considered . So if you have any ideas who sells panels, or suitable fabric Would love your ideas.
    I have a embroidery machine BUT my machine doesn't do larger designs its a cheapie but a goody LOL!!.
    I plan to enlarge a peace Dove our Hospice uses and applicate a large panel for one of the quilts. If it looks ok will make a couple with squares surrounding it. what do you Think.
    PLEASE be honest. I want them to bring peace to the families
    THANKS
    Debbie

    Forgot I'm not the best quilter in the world so any easy quilting idea's also would help. Great at making the tops but man quilting is somethiing else

    I think the dove sounds like a very nice idea. It is a peaceful symbol and at this time you want to help bring peace to the families.

    Not sure what size panel you are thinking of but why not get fabric with a pretty scene and cut your own panel, then put blocks around it using the colors in that "panel" fabric?

    I just made my son a queen size quilt using a wolf panel
    42 x 36 in the middle and then blocked around it until I got the size I wanted. The panel was like 6 or 7 dollars I bought it on 4my3boyz website.. I was very happy with the panel and they had a pretty good variety.

    What your doing is wonderful... I did see alot of different panels when searching for his. I googled fabric panels.. they do sell some on amazon also.

    Good luck
