    Just a word of caution - if you take your panel into the store, make sure they know it's yours so they won't try to make you pay for it. Sometimes, if they are not busy, they will enjoy helping you find fabrics to match.

    Love, love, love those pictures. I just finished a quilt for my grandson. It was a panel of dinosaurs. He loves dinosaurs. I just added sashing overall and then finished it.

    Wow Ruth, I never saw this. I did order one panel of the smaller pictures, and the lighter and darker dot and flower prints. I think I can do something similar to this with what I have. Thanks so much.

    Maybe sew some strips onto the larger picture (log cabin style) to enlarge it some, then alternate the smaller pics with star blocks, or something appliqued-maybe hearts. You could also use a pretty blender fabric to sash it, then use a lighter blender or tone on tone for the alternating blocks with the little pics. A pretty quilting design would be pretty in the light blocks.

    When I look at the pictures, what about a simple 4 patch square between or half square triangle triangles in matching colors to the panel between those pictures? Make a couple and put it next to the panels and see what appeals to you.

    I would probably leave it as is, put some colorful flying geese in the bare spots. In the center would do two rows facing opposite directions, then put a border around the whole piece and quilt each picture separately to outline it and make it stand out from the rest of the panel.

Super cute panel you have - mind me asking the fabric/manufacturer details? Thanks :-)

    Panel Quilt

    The panel is beautiful, you could cut apart, if the blocks are different sizes - lay out on graph paper and add frames around some of the blocks and add additional fabric and different sized blocks to fill in the gaps. I will try and post a picture if I can figure it out ,of one that I did with different sized blocks.

    You might make a quilt out of the smaller blocks and a pillow to match out of the 2 larger ones

    I would cut out each picture and use them as the center of the blocks in one of those 3D block quilts.

    Maureen,
    How did you ever finish this one off? I have the same fabric, only one panel, and haven't done anything with it yet....
    Thanks!

    Hancock's of Paducha has a free pattern on their web site that makes a beautiful quilt with this panel.
