    Hey All,

    I just bought two of these for my two little cousins and am not really sure what to do with them, so I thought I'd get your opinion on it.

    Thanks
    Cindy

    I would sandwich them and have some fun with thread painting :D:D:D

    Not knowing the size, perhaps a wall hanging. Or incorporate it into the center of a quilt.

    You could hand quilt the outlines of some of the shapes, add some baby animal blocks in the corners and co-ordinate with some other JOhn Deere fabrics.

    The fabric is 36" by 44" I wanted to make quilts out of them but not sure what I should do around the outside of it.

    Hi, here's a link to some ideas for using panels. Depending on how big you want the quilts to be you could surround it with both pieced blocks and borders, and either pull from different colour families or arrange them differently so each cousin's quilt is distinctly his or her own.

    Have fun!

    I got a similar sized 'hard hats' panel for my DGS and just used fleece for the backing and did not use any batting at all. I stitched around the main shapes of the panel for the quilting then I found some coordinating color bias quilt binding at Wal-Mart and used that for the binding. It was really quick and easy and Logan loves it.

    Depending on the size I would do a 'border' of pieced blocks then another solid border then sandwich and bind.

    I got the same panel. I backed it with John Deere flece and just quilted a grid with my walking foot. I pulled the backing to the front for the binding. Made a really fast baby quilt.

    I would just find coordinating fabric and do borders. That panel is so cute.

    I have the very same one and did the same thing that KatFish suggested. I bought John Deere fleece and bordered and backed it with it. The sides are tied like a fleece blanket would be. Simply adorable!

    I have some John Deere fat quarters that I would use around the panel.
