    Susybee Barron the Bear

    Have you ever had a panel that is so out of square you had to cut it up and pretty much remake it? Well this darn Susybee panel was one of those...... I did the best I could with it and think the mom will love it. I used a bee quilting pattern and my favorite backing shannon canary minky. The border with the owls from a different line of fabrics but I think it looks ok.

    ​Sew cute! It all looks perfect together! I find panels with borders or lines the worst for being out of square.

    Love it... super cute!

    Panels are actually printed straight. It's the rolling of the yardage onto big rolls, and then the subsequent 'bolting' onto bolts that skews it. Don't be afraid to take a panel and just tug real hard on the bias until you have it square again. Then press.

    Very sweet!! Great save!

    I don't think I have every found an un-skewed panel. I usually tape one selvedge edge to the edge of my cutting table, then dampen the panel slightly and gently tug and tape one perpendicular edge to the table. Using my long cutting rulers and my 12 1/2 inch squares, I gently align and tape the other two edges to the table. Final check is to make sure the diagonal measurements are the same (something my woodworker DH taught me!). Then I wet the whole thing down and leave it to dry. Next day--one squared up panel!

    Your quilt is precious. I love it.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    You did a splendid job...it is an adorably fun quilt. Love, love the bee quilting. Question...when you use the minky backing, do you also use batting?
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    I do a lot of Susybee panel quilts for Project Linus...but have never seen this one. May I inquire as to where you purchased this one? The minky on the back is gorgeous...and the quilting is perfect.

    So very cute!

    Yes, I've had that problem with panels. Didn't know about tugging on it to square it up, but I'll be trying that in the future.
