    Wonderful use of panels! I can hardly wait to see a picture of the wallhanging mentioned. You all do such a wonderful job. I'll have to try some of your ideas, and start cutting the panels before I put them in quilts. :thumbup:

    Panels lend themselves to round robin styles. The ones that show a single scene can be enlarged with borders. The ones with individual scenes, can be cut apart and incorporated or bordered as a single panel as well. They are also great test pieces for FMQ as one can do great outline quilting.

    One of my favorite quilts has a panel in the middle of a giant log cabin

    I did something kind of fun, I bought seven panels and lopped six of them up to make an OBW/Stack-n-whack out of it, then put the 7th panel on the back of the quilt. My sister loved it!

    The only problem I have had with panels is that some of them have been printed off grain. Drives me nuts! I have to decide if it is more important to have a squared up quilt or even borders. I usually compromise and trim a little plus fudge the borders a little. I haven't had problems with quality panels from companies like Moda, but I have had with some adorable baby panels from quilt shops. Sigh. I still use them because they are so cute, but be aware.

    Missouri Star Quilt Company has a You Tube short about using a quilt panel with the attic windows pattern. The directions were clear and the piecing easy, eliminating the Y seam.

    Check out Pandora Fracture by Pam See. I have saved it for future use when I get the right panel. I love it.

    I've used panels and love them. I also use fabric that is suppose to be made into a book. I just cut the book pages apart so I have just the book fabric and treat them like little mini panels. You can lay on it and read the book.
