    I bought some Moda Bistro collection at a sale at my LQS but now I have no idea what to do with them. Each piece is either 1 yard or 2+ yards depending on what was left on the bolt. The plaid on the end is my ironing board not fabric ;-) Should I make a lap quilt if so what pattern, should I make placemats? LOL! What to do???? While you have your thinking caps on, how about this panel? Any ideas?

    The plaid looks like it fits right in :D The fabrics look like very welcoming placemats to go with coffe and donuts.

    It does, doesn't it? Too bad I gave the last of it to my daughter. I wish I would have bought more of the end piece to make curtains...

    The two blue pieces would make a gorgeous hand bag :D:D:D

    The other three would make a fun wall hanging with matching placemats.

    I love the panel too!!!

    Look at this pattern:

    For the panel I would cut the sections apart and add pieced quilt blocks (log cabin is my favorite for panels) made from coordinating fabrics.

    I would use the three browns/tan for one quilt and the other blue fabrics for another quilt. I would also use to panel for a lap quilt,I think victorian repro would look good with it.

    That panel looks pretty complete to me. I love the floral border. I'd probably just add another outer border or two depending on what finished size you're going for.

    I also would cut the panel. The biggest part would make an awesome center for a lap quilt for someone that is sick.
    Love the other ones, too. The brown ones would make nice appliance covers.

    That panel is so cute!!! I would probably cut that up too and add quilt blocks mixed in with them.
    Not sure on the others.

    The Moda Bistro I would make a 9 patch alternating with teacups and a wide 4-5 bands of the Latte-Capucino border and use it as a wall hanging in my kitchen.

    Let's see, the coffee related ones need to go to Marsye for her coffee and donut shop.

    Than panel needs to head my way - it would fit into my future LQS. To hang as a sample! It's beautiful. I'd have a hard time cutting it up.

    And the blues on the end would make a nice start to a quilt, place mats or tote bag, or book covers.

    You could make little mats to go under your coffee pot. If you have lots of fabric, it could make nice Christmas presents . :)

    Ignore marsey, :) the panel should be mine, (no I'm not picking a fight just making a Joke!!) (not asking for it either) But that is an adorable panel !!

    Make a lap Q w/the coffee theme, neutral background, Appliqued cups the shape of whats on the stripe and can be used on/for the border. (Hope that made sence)
    Good Luck and Enjoy !! :)
