    thanks, i got this fabric, it took 1 yard to get the whole panel, at a fabric outlet here where i live. they have the best choices and all their fabric is 3.99 per yard.
    the same fabric as the quilt shop has, just not the newest lines.
    needless to say it is my favorite place to be.

    cathe, i don't know who manufactured the fabric, but the art work is by Mary Engelbreit. i hope that helps.
    the title of the cloth book is "mary engelbreit's mother goose"

    nanabird--how do you get the squares in the sashing so perfectly placed? I've never had any luck with that. Please do share your secret. :wink:

    I have the same panel and did the same thing. I bought four panels for $1 each when our WalMart closed their fabric department. I used sashing in primary colors to match the colors in the fabric. On the Star light, star bright picture that said this "book was made with love for ", I appliqued over the words saying "this quilt was made with love for ..." I used the cover picture of Mary Engelbreit"s Mother Goose and another picture to make a pillow to go along with the quilt. I was also able to get the coordinating fabric which has all the characters on blue dotted background to use for the backing for $l yard.

    The salvage says Mary Engelbreit for VIP by Craston 2006.

    I do this a lot with story book panels.

    hi barn, i think the "perfect" placement is a combination of luck and an illusion. for one thing each picture was straight to begin with. all i had to do was trim each one with a seam allowance included. the little yellow border of each picture was part of the panel. i just trimmed it to show 1/4 inch.
    i am trying to work with another that is as crooked as a "dogs hind leg", (that's what my grandma used to say). it is an adorable panel but i am going to have to figure out a way to use it by making "crooked" part of the design. wish me luck.
