Default panel challenge

The challenge is to do "something creative" with a panel. The panel is your choice. I went to a small quilt show and shop hop Friday and saw a Valentine panel in one of the vendor's shop. I have a whole lot of Valentine fabric and decided the panel would be a way to kill two quilts with one challenge. Good thing it's not due until October since I don't have the slightest clue what I'm going to do!!


This is the panel. What to do? What to do!

It's not until October which is a really good thing because I really don't have a clue what I'm going to do!! About the only thing I am thinking about doing so far is cutting the giant heart out and appliquing it to a different background.

Add bling!! ....lace, ribbons, sequins, crystals etc ... including using the quilting itself to embellish!

Pretty panel. What about fracturing it?

If it's small enough make a Bible cover.

Do you have to leave it attached side to side like that or can you cut it apart and add pieced blocks between them?

Have you tried Free Motion Machine Embroidery? In my opinion, this fabric would make a wonderful quilt using this technique. Plus, as mentioned by QuiltE...add some lace, buttons, any type of embellishment. It is a lovely panel and the possabilities are endless. Have fun creating and I hope you share what you decide to do.

I can do anything with it. It doesn't even have to be recognizable when I'm done with it.

I love Valentine and heart fabric. I am sure you will create something really beautiful with this panel..maybe even more than one thing.
