Default Santa quilting panel

A few years ago I bought the Tom Newsome Santa quilting Christmas cards - they were great. Now there is a panel with that same picture available. So of course I bought one. Now I am wondering what to do with it

has anyone here gotten the panel and is willing to share their ideas?

I see a wall hanging or a lap quilt surrounded by blocks that are the same as the quilt Santa is sewing. I might have to find that panel.

Like MicheleC, I'd say border it up, either as a wall hanging or lap quilt.
Then do some FMQing to outline and enhance the different elements in the picture.

This will be a fun project for you to finish up for Christmas this year.
........But if you are having problems as to what to do ... just mail it off to me!

About a month ago Misty Doan from Missouri Star made a panel into a snow globe you might want to check it out.

What about a window pane layout, like someone on the outside looking in?

Love that panel. I like panels to work with, just add borders that go with the colors and theme, then make the different border pieces and add to the panel. I'm working on a panel quilt right now featuring wild life so am adding pieced borders or whatever I think looks good with the panel. I would post a pix but can't seem to do that anymore. Good luck and be sure to show us your completed quilt when done.

Oooo! I like the window pane idea, either Jordan Fabrics or Missouri Star quilt has a you tube tutorial.
