    quilt from fabric panel

    Here's my quilt that I made using a book panel. It was fun figuring out how to use the panel.

    Panel Quilt

    This is one I made for my new nephew a few years back...
    I have another panel I need to make up and am stumped too - hope to see more ideas here!

    what a terrific idea i bought a few cloth book projects last season and didn't get around to making them for my granddaughter and they were christmas stories but i can make a seasonal quilt from them that she can use for years to come over the holidays. and i have a great christmas fabric to use for the strips around the blocks, now to come up with a corner idea i will be all set. love this board. i get so much out of it. thank you folks you are all amazing.

    I am in the process of making a top from a fabric book-Can you find?-I cut the 'pages' out and bordered them with different bright colours. Just need to sandwich and quilt. Was super easy.

    I have a couple of book panels, but keep put it on hold because there are so many patterns to do. The examples shown are great.

    They are 5" blocks. I may have to piece some of them together so it's not too big!

    I did that one time, several years ago and can't find a picture if I even took one then. Think I used a sashing when I did it. Just lay it out and be inspired!!! Let us see it when you're finished. Jan

    I'm really poor at getting on the board lately (harvest season in full force!), but this post has been awesome! I have a couple of fabric book panels and I have lots of ideas now! Thanks to all of you!
    When someone mentions quilting, I go to pieces!

    With or without the cornerstone stars, IMHO, Polly has the right idea. You may not need that many filler blocks. The ones I've made only needed one after page 2 and one before the last page. Do a layout and see what looks good to you. Unless the book fabric is terribly flimsy, it should not need any special backing to strengthen it. If it does, selectlight weight iron on interfacing.

    PS. Generally quilters love to help. Don't get in a twist about asking. I'd have become a competant quilter much faster if I had been ready to ask for help.
