    What to do with this panel?

    I recently purchased these two panels. One is for my BFF and one for me. I also ordered two yards of the companion fabric, one brown with beige print and the other beige with brown. I dont have that yet so I cant show you. My thought was to put the larger one in the center and the smaller ones in each corner. What do I put in between? Squares of fabric. I never worked with a panel before. Not sure what to do. Anything you can offer would be much appreciated.Name:  BFF Panel (800x533).jpg

    Very cute. I would cut them apart, leaving a 1/4" all round and either put sashings between or a color to match one in the picture. Put at least a small boreder to frame it or borders to make it larger.

    That's just too cute.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    I like your idea of a the larger in the center and the smaller in the corners. Frame out the center, finishing that "row" with solid blocks. Then use a solid block to set the two corners together??? Very cute pics. Your BFF will love it

    Try searching images in your favorite search engine (google etc...) I typed in Panel quilts and several images came up giving me several ideas.

    This is a photo of the first panel quilt i ever made. Even though I didn't have a large panel, you could do something similiar setting the large block off to one side, then making a column or row of the others offset. Super cute panel you have - mind me asking the fabric/manufacturer details? Thanks :-)

    I have a few similar panels and my plan is to make coffee / tea sets. Four mug rugs and a kind of a placemat to put cookies and cream on. They make wonderful gifts.
