Default Are these panels part of a pattern?

Someone gave me many yards of this Debbie Mumm fabric. The panels are not square....they measure approx. 9" x 10.5". Is this simply a cheater quilt? Or is it part of a pattern where these are alternated with pieced blocks?
Thanks to anyone who can shed some light on this.

It's probably a cheater panel, but you could cut them up if you want to alternate with your own blocks. It's actually a lot prettier than many cheater panels and would look lovely when nicely quilted.

looking at the sashing, it seems to be a cheater panel. i'm with Tartan... quilt it as is and many won't be able to tell that you didn't piece it.

Agree, cheater panel. It is one of the prettier ones I've seen. I'd put a border or two on it, then quilt it. Whatever you do, it will be loved by someone!

I would finish it up and add borders to make it large enough to be used.

Well, cheater or not, it is pretty. Go ahead and quilt it and we won't tell.

I'd leave it as is and quilt it. Everyone I know who has cut up and re-pieced a similar panel that has declared it a total nightmare ("Never again!") due to misprinting/uneven squares on the panel.

Beautiful panel. Haven't seen it in stores before, but I would not hesitate to add borders on it and quilt it as is. Wish someone had given it to me!!

love it, I'd make it the back of the next quilt you quilt. Make a beautiful double sided one.
If you have more, make shams.

I agree... use it as is. I tried to cut them apart and use them as individual blocks and regretted it! It can become a real nightmare. It really is lovely and when quilted, will be treasured.
