    If it makes you feel any better, I would have bought it too. They are really cute panels. I would make a wall hanging for my sewing room. :)

    In a tote or a series of totes that you use to carry your projects around in.

    I too have one of these panels and was planning on making individual wall hangings to put in my sewing room, but there are some great alternative ideas put forward so I may ghave to reconsider! I also bought an extra panel so I can include a wall hanging in the Swap partners on this board.

    Make a lap quilt and add sashing. Piece the borders to include the sayings at the bottom of your panels. It'll be really cute what ever you do with it.

    I would have said a lap quilt, but I love your ideas :)

    If you remember where you found the vintage sewers panel could you please post it. Thank you.

    I did that with some "quilting quotes" a few years ago!! Our guild had an "ugly fabric" challenge at our quilt show last year. So I used the ugly fabric as borders around the "quotes" and WON!!! LOL. Now you are going to make me find the pics and post them; arent you!!!
    Yes we are!!!!LOL PLEASE!!!!!!

    I would think about a throw for yourself or maybe a set of wall hangings for your sewing room. Also would make a nice gift for a fellow quilter if you can bear to part with any of them.
