    Hi all, since so many of you were so kind as to take an interest and to share fabric for my Panda Quilt, I thought I'd do a WIP so you can see how it comes together.
    Today I'm posting photos of some of the fabrics you all have shared with me, and some of the "go withs" I've come up with.
    I also have a pattern that I'm going to use as a taking off point for this quilt.
    It's an Amish-type large block pattern. I thought it better than cutting all the cute Pandas up into little pieces. I will be using more sashing and such than the pattern has tho.

    Thanks to the member who posted this photo, it was my first idea

    doing some adapting, my paper didn't have square spaces on the paper so my center is diamond instead of square

    I'm hoping for one more colored piece that is different from the 3 I have, to become the 4 triangles around the on point center square.
    I still have more fabric coming in the mail. :D

    It is so nice of you to share your progress. I for one, really appreciate all the time you are taking from quilting to do this for us with posting pics etc. You are a wonderful contributor to this board.

    thank you Sandy, but this board is so generous and supportive of my efforts when I need them, it's the very least I can do to share the progress when so many have taken an interest!! Hugs and smilesssss...

    Hi all. Today I did a little playing with some of the fabric.. I'm still waiting for a few more pieces to come in the mail.
    I need one more color for the center square unit; you can see it with 3 colors below. I'm thinking maybe a strip of white between the center square and the colored triangles.
    I love the churndash squares for the four outer corners!!

    I hear you there! Apparently panda's are totally out of fashion now. lol... I had a terrible time finding them too. Thank goodness for our qb friends.

    Today I finished the two outside panels of the quilt. I'm tempted to paint the leaves on the B&W inside of the long panels just to break up so much B&W, lol, what do you all think?
    I tried putting a windmill block in the middle but it just didn't work.
    If I don't get another color for the center, what do you think of using 2 of the turquoise? I really don't want to do that, but without a 4th color.. well, I can always go a whole different direction too.. lol. Time to open the mind and let other ideas in. This is blocking my progress. LOL
