    Eye of the tiger in progress.

    I found this beautiful tiger panel. The only thing is..... its silky. So, I found what I think is the perfect background fabric to stabilize it and also serve as a background fabric for it. My only problem now is deciding if I should just make it into a wall hanging or if I should go for a quilt sized top? What do you think?

    Such a beautiful panel. I would make a quilt with it; but either would be fabulous. Your background fabric does go perfectly.

    The only problem with a quilt over a wallhanging is washing it. Will the silky fabric survive multiple washings? If in question, I would go with a wallhanging.

    My first gut reaction upon seeing this GORGEOUS panel was full size quilt, but dogsgod brings up an excellent point. The durability of the fabric should definitely dictate how this will be used. I love the background fabric you chose it compliments perfectly.

    It was in some fabric that a friend brought to me from her sister. I have no idea where her sister got it. There was two of them. So, maybe I'll make a quilt and a wall hanging.

    Well, normally I'd say go big or go home, but after hearing the concerns over washing this, I may have to change it up & say wall hanging. Whatever you make, please show us when you get it done!

    So beautiful!! Is it really silk or could it be a poly that looks like silk? I would say quilt, but not if the washing will ruin it. Some tiger fan would love hanging that beauty. BTW, beautiful background, too.
    One step at a time, always forward.

    I'm sure its not silk. It just feels kinda like it. Its probably a type of poly. Anyway, nothing ventured, nothing gained. I'm going to go for it. Since I have 2 panels, I'm going to make both. I'll be sure to post the outcome.

    Gorgeous panel and what a find in the background material it is a wonderful pairing! I think a quilt with matchings shams or cases of the background would be great but it all depends on what you really would like to have. Thanks so much for sharing that majestic cat.
