    Great panel!!

    Do you just have the six blocks?

    Is there enough space to cut each of the "blocks" apart,
    and allow for seams, and not cut anything off?

    If so ... I visualize something in reds and blacks with or without whites.
    Actually I think I would leave out the whites, to allow for a good punch with your blocks.
    A good scrappy stash user!

    All sorts of possibilities .... checkerboards alternating with the blocks? flying geese?
    or whatever your favourite sashing/cornerstone layout is.

    As to what to make ... really depends on what would be the most useful for you!

    you could make a quilt with other blocks in those colors or they might make great placemats. or tote bags...

    I think it would look striking with some black and whites that are more black than white. Cut them apart and play with them! I'd put them 2 across and 3 down, for a longer quilt. Sash and add extra columns to the sides-- something like pinwheels or hourglasses would be fun. It's a great panel.

    Oh thank you so much for the name of the line! Fowl Play! I only have the 1 panel and there is just enough fabric between the, to cut apart and add a border. I am leaning towards making a table runner for the breakfast table with 2 of the chickens and use the other 4 for placemats. Black and white Checkerboard or gingham with a thin red border ! The egg fabric here is super cute for the back> https://www.mountaincreekquilters.co...ker-Frisch.htm. Thank you for the inspiration! Will post pics..

    Table runner, wall quilt, placemats, add blocks and make a lap throw or skip the struggle and send it to me. This is beautiful!

    Love the chickens. Do you have any of the chicken wire (and chicken tracks) fabric? That would be cute in the added fabrics.

    Consider cutting the blocks apart as others have said and add alternate blocks. I picture arranging the panel blocks in a Purina-style setting, using 5 of the 6 blocks and adding the alternate blocks. Then, if you want something bigger, add some borders and you would have a nice sized wall hanging. Just my thoughts - - -

    I see 6 pretty placemats on your table. Let us know what you decide on.

    And I have used the black on white and a green on white! That would be an amazing idea - to use that fabric!
