    Robert Kaufman ‘Zoologie’ Panel

    I have a piece of Robert Kaufman fabric and I just don’t know what to do with it.

    I’ve searched the internet, including Pinterest, trying to find examples of how this fabric has been used but found nothing.

    Just wondered if anyone here has made a quilt from this fabric and has a photo of it.

    Each block is approximately 11 inches square - if someone would like to make a suggest I would be grateful. At the moment I’m thinking of cutting it into two squares of 4 blocks and putting borders round.

    My small quilts go to Project Linus.

    Take a look at Jenny Doan's "Illusion Block" quilt. You could separate the squares that way and make a crib-size quilt.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    I think "Warm Wishes" would work well to frame your panel pictures.

    This panel is nearly the same as the one I used in the quilt below:

    It's the same size and from the same artist, Ann Kelle. You could do something like this.

    This is a favorite tutorial that could be fun.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UGt6_pWo6zs

    You could also put one plain square in the center for personalization. Then add the panel squares around it.

    Example of Layout:

    Top row = 3 panel blocks
    Center Row = Panel Block, Plain Square Block and Panel Block
    Bottom Row = Same as top row.

    Have Fun!

    I love the way you have arranged the blocks and I’m sure I’ve got fabric that would make the centre block.
    Thank you!

    I googled ‘Warm Wishes’ and found some really pretty examples.

    Thanks for suggesting this!

    I’ve decided to go with maudeflanagan’s idea.

    I’m now busy making a simple pinwheel block from matching colours to go in the centre.

    I’ve been trying to decide what to do with this panel for ages and I got the answer here this afternoon.
    Thank you!

    Thank you Rhonda for the tutorial. I had never tried to straighten a panel before cutting it.

    I should mention that I did not come up with the idea originally. There was a lot/pattern available on Craftsy at one point that utilized the panel in nearly the same way. Since the kit sold old, the pattern was no longer available. I tried to purchase the pattern from Craftsy, but their customer service told me that it wasn’t possible. I ended up just doing the math and figuring out the pattern for myself.

    here is the inspiration for mine:

    It was very simple to make and I am happy that you figured out what you want to do with yours!

    Here is a free pattern from Robert Kaufman that utilizes this panel as well:

    I'm working on a churn dash quilt using some printed panel squares. They are entirely different, but this old fashioned block lends itself to this kind of thing because you can use any size square in the middle. The 4 rail blocks are then cut the same length as the sides of the square, and the corners are the same dimension as the ends of the rails. In my case, I used 2 1/2" rails, and made 2 hst's as a time starting with 5" squares. I trimmed the hst's just a smidge, which is the only way they ever turn out really square for me, anyway. If you cut them 5 1/4" you'd have more leeway, but I had a lot of 5" squares to use, and that worked. I just finished making 28 of these, no two exactly alike. If your panel doesn't have enough for the size quilt you want, you can place something like hourglass blocks or snowballs between them.
