    Help with Bird quilt -Backyard Birds Panel

    I saw a quilt made using this panel and really like it. But it has been a while since I have had time to quilt or even be online. Retired now and trying to attack my to do projects. does anyone remember the one I am referring too (it may have been 2-3 years ago) Or do you have any suggestions. Thanks so much for your help.

    Have you tried doing a search in IMages to see what quilts have been done using that panel? sounds cute.

    Any suggestions one how to use this for a quilt would be so appreciated. I bought this to make someday for a dear friend. I talked to her this week and her husband has been diagnosed with a brain tumor that is cancer. It has gone so far that there isn't anything to do. I feel a need to hurry and do the quilt to send to her along with love and hugs.

    There was a pattern that I liked a lot called Sidelights which used a panel (if you Google that you will see a number of examples). I am thinking this might work with your panel too. And by the way, I love that panel and love that you care enough for you friend to send her a quilt hug.

    Your friend will appreciate you thinking of her. Hope you find a design that appeals to you. You will be making such a treasure for her.

    It looks to me that the smaller squares are meant to be made into pillows to match the panel.

    That is a neat panel and I am sorry that you have reason now to rush. I hope the best for your friend.
