    Hi, I think what you are doing is great. I like the serenity prayer,theme. You could just make a templet of the arches, and have the arches whatever color you want, then the background could be anything, each arch a different color, you could buy used 100o/o percent cotton t shirts, or other clothing that had images on them you could cut out and use

    I thought if I could find suitable Panels I could use them as the center and put quilt squares around it with a solid border.
    I went to Joanne's the only place to buy fabric around here. What a disappointment. No Panels, no fabric with angels or peace doves.
    Any ideas would be appreciated . Unfortunitly cost has to be considered . So if you have any ideas who sells panels, or suitable fabric Would love your ideas.
    I have a embroidery machine BUT my machine doesn't do larger designs its a cheapie but a goody LOL!!.
    I plan to enlarge a peace Dove our Hospice uses and applicate a large panel for one of the quilts. If it looks ok will make a couple with squares surrounding it. what do you Think.
    PLEASE be honest. I want them to bring peace to the families
    THANKS
    Debbie

    Forgot I'm not the best quilter in the world so any easy quilting idea's also would help. Great at making the tops but man quilting is somethiing else
    I have a friend that is going to drop off a panel tomorrow morning and I will post a picture of it, if you interested in it
    we can go from there. She would only want the postage to send it to someone.

    Also consider patriotic themed panels for veterans.

    I haven't read all of the post so it has most likely been mentioned but I get panels on etsy as well as ebay often for just a few bucks each.

    Debbie,
    PM me your address as I have a panel called Amazing Grace I will send you to complete for your hospice. A very dear friend of mine lost his battle with cancer last year and the hospice was such a peaceful & caring place for his family and friends to spend his last days. Thank you for your time and caring of all that spend their last days in hospice.

    Brenda

    Mark, so sorry that i offended you, by saying to cover the prayer. It was just a thought that might help her to use the fabric.

    I've seen some of the on-line fabric shops have categories that list panels -I look at all categories and I don't remember which ones but I seem to remember 1 or 2 sites with Doves also you could narrow your search to Religious themed fabrics.Also Christmas fabrics, Its a wonderful thing you are doing for Hospice families They were with us in our home for my dearly missed Husbands final days They are all Angels

    I would not cut out the prayer. I have always found it to give me peace and serenity. Perhaps some of the patients' families will have the same reaction.

    I was at hospice yesterday and took pictures. Was thinking of making a few with the dove symbol they use. Haven't appliqued alot but I can learn. My son has a projector that I can enlarge the design.
    Have to start writing everyone's idea down and get organized.
    Today Looks like I'll have some free time to get my brain working.
    Thanks everyone for your help and of course would love all ideas.

    Keepsakequilting.com or Marshalls.com both have Panels. I think either would have what you are looking for.

    I do realize this thats why I'm also looking for sceanic ones

It has Jesus looking down on a scene with angels, and sheep in a pasture with a bridge and brook.
    Great idea BUT I know I can't afford to buy ready make quilt tops . It sure would make things go fast if I could.
