    I bought some Moda Bistro collection at a sale at my LQS but now I have no idea what to do with them. Each piece is either 1 yard or 2+ yards depending on what was left on the bolt. The plaid on the end is my ironing board not fabric ;-) Should I make a lap quilt if so what pattern, should I make placemats? LOL! What to do???? While you have your thinking caps on, how about this panel? Any ideas?

    The plaid looks like it fits right in :D The fabrics look like very welcoming placemats to go with coffe and donuts.

    It does, doesn't it? Too bad I gave the last of it to my daughter. I wish I would have bought more of the end piece to make curtains...

    The two blue pieces would make a gorgeous hand bag :D:D:D

    The other three would make a fun wall hanging with matching placemats.

    I love the panel too!!!

    Look at this pattern:

    For the panel I would cut the sections apart and add pieced quilt blocks (log cabin is my favorite for panels) made from coordinating fabrics.

    I would use the three browns/tan for one quilt and the other blue fabrics for another quilt. I would also use to panel for a lap quilt,I think victorian repro would look good with it.

    That panel looks pretty complete to me. I love the floral border. I'd probably just add another outer border or two depending on what finished size you're going for.

    I also would cut the panel. The biggest part would make an awesome center for a lap quilt for someone that is sick.
    Love the other ones, too. The brown ones would make nice appliance covers.
