    I bought this fabric a few years ago to make a quilt for my husband. Any way this is what I have and want some opions of how to make a quilt for him. He will be 50 in Nov. So I want to try and get it made for birthday/christmas present for him. I had and idea at one time to take some of the pillow panels and use those for the corners of the quilt. And use one of the bigger panels for the center. But am not sure of what other colors to use. What would you do with it?

    I Have 3 of these panels

    You could add greens and browns as borders to bring out the pic

    How do the dimensions of the two sets of panels match up? My thought would be to find co-ordinating browns, greens and a bit of the sky blue to do simple blocks around the larger panel and between the pillow panels which I would arrange around the center panel. If you still have some pillow panels left, by all means make a pillow to match!

    I would take it with me to the LQS and have them help me with fabric choices and design.
