    Sylvia, sorry but I don't know. I just found it in a fabric store like a QS, Joanne or even maybe Walmart.

    My DH says he'll help me with photos on his day off this week so then I can show you the wallhanging I made. I'll put it on this thread since it's a demonstration of using panels.

    Here's one I did. My guy LOVES ww2 planes and he got enthusiastic about my quilting (for probably the first time) when he saw the panel in a quilt shop. In retrospect I probably should have cut the apart into four blocks. Anyway, I added the blocks with the pieced planes (from the Victory Quilts book) and the ribbon borders on two sides to help with the proportions. And the corner blocks (yellow/red checkerboard) match some of the symbols that are in the original panel.

    Here it is, ready to go to the LAQ.

    I can't say that working with a panel was my favorite thing, but I do like some of the ones others have posted.

    I have seen many and they always seem to be adorable.

    Wonderful use of panels! I can hardly wait to see a picture of the wallhanging mentioned. You all do such a wonderful job. I'll have to try some of your ideas, and start cutting the panels before I put them in quilts. :thumbup:
