    Hi. I bought this one sewing panel at the Temple Sew & Quilt Store on Thursday. I could not resist buying the panel. Therefore, it came home with me. I have no idea what to do with it. Any suggestions? I would love to hear them.

    thanks for your help.

    They are pretty. So you want to hem them? Are you going to just finish them the way they are?? Do you have any ideas how you want to use them?

    I wouldn't be able to resist that, either! Do you need a sewing machine cover? Or chair pockets? You could use the larger blocks to make a chair cover: a padded one for your shoulders, with inserts for rice socks ~ the the one that hangs off the back of the chair could hold rulers or whatever...

    The smaller pieces could become scrap pockets, or sew together and make one of the travel wraps for scissors / rulers / pencils / tools? You gotta show us pics when you decide! :)

    My thoughts exactly. maybe add some borders, sandwich them and do some quilting on them, then mount and frame and hang in your sewing room or a guest room or your room or..... they are darling.

    I would not have been able to resist that either! In fact I wish one of my LQS had it so I could be tempted to bring it home too!

    I would be tempted to quilt them and hang them in my sewing room, but, the ideas keep coming. A tote...a jacket...a lap quilt...a tote... a jacket...
