    My daughter's saw some of these panels just the other day! If I bought one and cut it up they'd be very unhappy with me! When I saw the panels I never thought of the OBW, but your OBW is going to be gorgeous!! I love it!! Can't wait to see it finished :thumbup:

    I DO know what you mean, I actually got 7 and intend to use the full panel on the reverse so I don't feel too guilty, I picked them up for less than £12 in the one shop in Manchester that sells craft fabrics, stuck in a dumpster of seconds which I nearly walked right past!!


    :D

    That is gorgeous! I would never have thought about using a panel for OBW. I can hardly wait to see the finished project!

    Thanks for your compliments everyone!!

    Well I have searched through ALL the fabric in the store but they were all small scale designs and using panels ensures that you have no repeats to even worry about!!
    Each panel is about 24" x 44", I was a bit concerned as the black outline really stands out and I thought it may detract from the subtlety of the usual OBW...mine isn't really blending as it should... :-}

    Thanks Rhonda, yes I had one of those 'light bulb' moments and did a silly happy dance in the shop when it dawned on me what I could do with the panels!!

    They are not really 'my' colours, but I thought nice enough to practice on!!

    :wink: :lol: :-)

    Hey Rhonda, I think you have a special clock that has 36 hours in a day to achieve what you do!! LOL!!

    :-)

    p.s. I haven't done any sewing for six months or so....but my bedroom looks like a sewing factory all ready (much to John's frustration) lol!!

    Izy, I love it, reminds me of your first quilt with the colours very subtle. It wouldn“t have occured to me either to use a panel. When I have finished by now 4 UFO“s will try this out .

    The colours are so lovely, you know where to send it, right!
