    I have a question for anyone that machine quilts or has it done. I have several different panels like the one Im posting and its on white cotton but its like a t-shirt iron on. Can you put these in a quilt and then have them machine quilted or does it make the "iron on" maybe tear and come off easier? I have about 20 of them and am trying to decide what to do with them quilt wise. Thanks!! Joan

    okay Ladies sorry I have been MIA lately but I have been sewing my bottom off. I should have them all out in the mail to you all within the next week or two. Thanks for being so patient. I am still trying to decide what to do for the next boomerang swap. Any ideas?

    I have done Tshirt quilts. Besure to use inter facing an not touch the pcitures with the hot iron. I quilt around the figures to outline them but I do so very lightly. I use Warm and Natural which makes it even heavier but you can quilt up to 11 in. apart.

    Anna, you put interfacing on the back of the panel? These are on 100% cotton, already printed, not on tshirt material. Each panel is approx 18" x 16". I am afraid if I were to have them machine quilted it might make them "peel" off because the stitching would be so tight and cover the entire panel. On the other hand if I dont quilt them on the panel it wouldnt hold up as well. Im really confused on how to make them into a quilt. Thanks for your help!! As you can see they are Civil War scenes! The Union panels are at the quilters now..cant wait to get it back!

    Sorry I miss understood. I thought it was T-shirt material. I would not quilt them but quilt around the panel. That is why I would use Warm and Natural as that can b quilted up to 11 in. apart. If you feel it would need some quilting I would only outline the main figures. No definitely do not over quilt by stipling or anything. I have done iron ons as pictures and did not quilt over the pictures. I love the panels. Very nice but then you know I am a sucker for Civil War.

    ME too Anna...thats why I ended up with about 20 different pictures! LOL Now Im not sure what to do with them! Tying might be an option on the panel itself and quilt the sashing inbetween? I wouldnt want too many of the panels in one quilt though...might make it too "busy"...ugh...Id rather be sewing on more Union General/Confederate General Panels! Thanks for the suggestions!

    So tell me how the panels were made, were they prepurchased already printed? Or did you send them thru the ink jet, or are they an iron on. That will depend on the quilting. Now I quilt thru mine all the time, even photo quilts with a monopoly. There is some new stuff that is really nice sold thru Superior Threads that works like a drean on these types of quilts. I would do just an outline of the larger features. I know the cotton says you can quilt up to 11" apart, but if this quilt is going to be used, you don't want that. If it is going to be hung, I am a firm believer in a wool batting and quilted softly over the designs to stabilize them while they hang. A cotton batting hangs nicely as well, but can droop because of lack of quilting. This is just be experience and studying the quilting process. That is my opinion.

    I have been MIA, got that nasty cold and not much energy to do anything and I am still going to work with it. Went to office last Friday with 101 temp. The phone rang twice all day. Did not get my work done at all because could barely sit up enough to look like someone was there. Getting a bit better now if this cough would quit I could handle the rest. I know, many of you are waiting on your blocks and as I have stated, they are all cut up in a box sorted nice and neat waiting to be sewn. Working them down. I am using my grandma's 1970 Singer. It does pretty good, but slower to use than my Bernina which is doing embroidery for gifts right now and customer quilts. I will be getting on them asap.

    QuilterMomma...The woman I bought the panels from said they were not ironed on but I dont remember how she said they were made. I know they are on white 100% cotton and the panel feels like a tshirt,almost rubbery feeling. I dont know yet what Ill do with it yet. Im just in limbo on what to do with them...even as far as sashing with colors etc. They are really pretty scenes from the War with good colors and want to use them somehow. I may bug you again as I get time to look at them closer and try to decide! Thanks for your answer!

    I received my block from Fraew and its prettier in person than on line! Thank you so much. Its the lst flower basket Ive ever received and I love it! I tried to leave you feedback but it wont let me on anyone..not sure what Im doing wrong!

    Makes me wonder if it is a sealer she put on them. If pressing at any time I would be sure to use an applique pressing sheet over them to protect both iron and board.

    Awe shucks.

    I try my best to select a block that fits the requested theme and fabric. I am sooo slow because inspiration doesn't always come quickly. This makes it all worth while, customer satisfaction.

    It sounds like those panels have been screen printed. It will make it feel a little rubbery.

Size:  1.22 MBI have made several quilts for customers with Harley t-shirts from their rides,etc. some are scrren print and others are the "rubbery" patch type design. On the wrong side I ironed on the stabilizer, put the quilt together with cotton fabric and cotton backing, long arm quilted it. All have been through the wash several times and turned out great. I can say I know that for sure because one was for my son, even took 1st place at the fair with it. Okay that's my 2 cents. Today received a block from Daisey, thank you so much, the berries look great!! Still have 10 more to go.

    For those of you who made me a different block......I am also doing a Civil War quilt so many of you added to that. Then I just had some miscellaneous quilts that are filling in.
