As I was leaving the retreat, with quilt store attached, I saw this adorable Zoo Panel and thought, 'Why not just stack 4 panels on top of one another and use that instead of yardage?!' I bought 5 panels so I could use one as the center focus. The hardest part was figuring the size to cut the blocks. I used flannel for front and back and used 2 layers of Quilter's Dream Select. Since my DSM throat is only 6 1/2" I had to use a quilt-as-you-go method. I outline quilted all the animals on the panel first, then measured to determine my border sizes. I ended up cutting my 6 1/2" blocks, down to 6" Attachment 413816 so that everything would come out even. It should give the kiddos LOTS to look at : )
What a Great Idea!! I love it. Good Job.

Just so cute. I used panels once to make a stack n whack. Turned out pretty good, but yours is so interesting. Love figuring out what part of the panels made the blocks.
