    Red Rooster Fabrics has the large panel and the fabric that I used to cut out the other ones is from Burkholders fabrics. I never order on line but had to to get these. I think if you google the fabrics you might find other suppliers. Blue Hill makes the one with the smaller panels.

    Now if someone could help me figure out how to add another 12 inches all the way around, i would be overjoyed. I am stuck. Sort of thinking of a pieced 12 inch star in the four outer corners and some border but I am just not sure. My hubby hates the stars---does not think they go with the quilt.
