    I got these two panels from the Scrap Exchange in Durham a couple of months ago for just $3. When I saw them I knew I had to have them. The question now is what to do with them? Any ideas??????

    If you want heirloom, embroider them, otherwise, fabric paint them. They are gorgeous!

    Henry, this is an awesome find!!! Are these all cotton or a blend? If they are all cotton I would use fabric markers to color them in and they would be beautiful wallhangings. If they are a blend, the markers may not work as well, you could do some thread painting on them. Have fun with these treasures :D:D:D

    Henry I love them!! I'm not sure what I'd do but I'd either paint or quilt them and then hang them on the wall. What a great buy-good luck and please show us what you end up doing.

    What fun! I'd go mixed media - markers for finest details, and embellish with all sorts of things, like buttons, tiny silk flowers, and such. Look up "Painted Ladies" to get some color suggestions.
