    Asian type quilt pattern

    I found 3 Asian panel that match 2 jelly rolls I have . The panels are 12" wide X 20" long . Does anyone have any ideas how to incorporate this into a quilt ?

    I would doodle on some graft paper to find a good balanced arrangement for them and then fill in with patchwork of squares or triangles.

    You could do a french braid between each of the panels. In this quilt I used a panel on the back and did french braids on either side https://www.quiltingboard.com/pictur...t-t290958.html

    Often you need to border panels to get them to a size you can use with patch work. I will often make the width of the top and bottom border different than the side. As quilt30 suggested, draft some designs out on graph paper.

    Someone here advised me to check equilter for free patterns. I found what I wanted there.
    Search by the name of your panel/designer etc or just browse their patterns.
    So many there.

    You could also but the ones on the outsides lower than the center one and give youself three areas to use up scraps above and below the panels and still put the braid as planned. Just my thought.
    If you always do, what you have always done, The results never change. Change is the wings you give yourself.

    The equilter.com has many panel ideas. Seems that is their specialty.
