    I want to make this panel into a bed sized quilt without taking away the beauty of the panel itself. I was thinking batiks but am totally lost on what sort of blocks I want to do. Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated

    Hm, I think I would go more for the rustic look. (No batics) I can see it with log cabin blocks and assorted tree blocks around it. Even some bear paws might fit. The colors would be pulled from the colors in the panel along with plaids. It reads very natural and somewhat masculine to me. Pretty!

    Forgive my ignorance but what is a tree block? I think you're right about rustic now that I see it on here.

    Oh I like that! Would love to see the finished quilt. I, also think this would be good with bear paws or log cabins.

    maybe a few small inner borders then a flying geese strip all the way around then more borders,of course this might depend what size bed you are talking about.

    I probably wouldn't use batiks. Bear paw blocks, flying geese and some kind of star block would all work well. Moda marbles or tone on tone prints would work. A yard or two of that brown plaid that's around the outside of the panel would be great in the blocks. You could also add some greens, tans and blues in the blocks.

    Try Googling rustic quilts and you'll be amazed at what comes up for ideas. Had a bunch saved on my old computer that died and that's how I found them for ideas.

    There may also be yardage of that plaid in that line of fabric.

    I was hoping for a queen size but will settle for full if queen would be "too much" for that panel.

    All of these are good and you could add some flying geese too.

    Oh yes I have used the quilters cache.com for a lot of paper piecing blocks. Its a great site. The panel has only 2 or 3 more in that "Calling in the Herd" collection but will check again. I definitely like the tree idea and did find a block I like. I am so glad I posted the picture for help..there are so many talented quilters here.

    I saw a quilt on this board today that had a similar look, only it was a bear. Whoever made it had made it for her husband. It had a large panel in the center and she had finished it beautifully.

    I tried a search for it, but I guess I didn't ask right. Maybe someone else will remember it and guide you to it?

    Raggiemom I definitely want to put flying geese and I want to use that turquoise (or close to it) in them. I am finally starting to get a picture in my head on where I want to go.
