    I was wondering if I am the only one that enjoys sometimes buying a panel, especially for childrens quilts, and use my own creativity to add my own blocks and or borders. It seems that most magazines and catalogs now want to only sell the ps

    I just finished a Curious George quilt for my fiance's 3-year-old grandson. I used a panel of CG standing on a ball for the center of the quilt then bordered it with primary colors and CG printed fabric. He absolutely loves it!

    I also like to use panels and then design blocks around them to make quilts, especially outdoor and animal prints.

    I have used many panels, either as one piece and added blocks, borders, etc or by cutting them and working them into blocks for a different look.

    Sometimes I'm just in the mood to hand quilt something manageable, like a wall hanging, and finding a pretty panel to work with make the project very enjoyable.

    I love panels. I add blocks and borders and they make up great.

    Here are my latest two panel quilts. They've been previously posted but I'm proud of my great-nieces! ;)

    I love to make baby and kids quilts out of panels. They are great for a last minute gift.

    Sometimes you find that perfect fabric that you just don't want to cut up & it looks so well with borders and other blocks surrounding it. Panels nowadays are so gorgeous.
