Default quilt panels

I have been gifted with a number of quilt panels and would like to make them into bigger quilts. I would love to see photos of panels that have been enlarged to quilt size. I prefer to do smaller quilts...lap/wall hanging/single/ twin/double sizes but not queen or king size. Could you please post pics of your panel quilts? Thank you.

Thank you, Nancy. I did do a google search but wanted some more ideas. I am off to look at the video from your posted link.

Edited to add......LOL, when I got to the video, I realized I had watched it earlier today. Thanks again.

Default Using Panels

I love panels, they make easy work out of making a quilt! Some call them cheaters, I call them beautiful works of art!

This is a panel that I cut up and inserted an additional small panel
I had fun with this one, added interest in gradiated colors
I just added several borders to this one

Thx for posting your quilts, Linda. They are lovely. I agree about the panels making quick quilts.
The tree one is one of the panels I have!
I assume that the larger border you used on the tree panel is batik fabric.
