    What to do...

    I got this gorgeous panel at the LQS; actually I loved it so much I bought 2 of them. Now all I have to do is figure out what to do with it...

    I'm thinking I'll probably cut the individual sections apart and piece them into a throw or bed quilt top this spring. I'd love to hear your suggestions!

    It would make a beautiful wall hanging also. You do not need to do much to it, pretty all on it's own.

    Don't feel like you have to cut it apart and put it back together. It would also be gorgeous just how it is with a few borders. I can't wait to see what you do!

    Lovely just as it is, add borders and use it as a lap or wall hanging.

    Gorgeous panel. Love it just like it is. I agree, add borders and do a wall hanging or a beautiful lap quilt.

    I love the idea of cutting it up and creating windows (attic window pattern) with the panels. I think it would look like you are looking out a window while it is on your lap or wherever you end up putting it.

    Just beautiful, I probably couldn't have passed that up either! They're so pretty, you don't have to do much to accentuate their beauty. Show us the end result please

    I have to agree with the above. It is so beautiful as it is. I would add borders to match some of the floral colors, and make the outside border black. Soooo pretty!

    I think it would look really nice as an attic windows, but also since it has straight edges vertically, you might cut it and then cut the smaller blocks and put them sort of all around it on the right and underneath.

    Excuse my art, hope you get the idea. I have seen a pattern something like this done with a Japanese print but cannot remember the name of it.

    i would window pane the blocks- and make it into a quilt- it is beautiful. i have a number of panals i am going to start (playing with) as soon as i finish up some in the works projects- your panal gives me incentive to get busy

    Great ideas from everyone here. I'm glad I've got some time to think about it a bit before I get started on it. I'm considering adding some coordinating dark solid color or "read as solid" batiks or tone-on-tones with some floral redwork-type embroidery contrasting FMQ on them with similar designs.... thinking, thinking, thinking....

    This is going to be FUN to work with for sure!

    Pretty panel! I agree that a wall hanging or lap quilt would be great.

    I think the asymetrical Japanese panel idea would look great with the smaller blocks along the side and bottom like Iraxy mentioned but whatever you decide, it will be wonderful!

    Use as a wall hanging, enhance, enhance, enhance. Beads, floww, tiny buttons, etc.etc.

    My vote is for adding borders and using as a wall hanging.
