It can be tricky to decide what to do with some of the panels that the fabric companies produce... Often they are printed the wrong way, in the wrong direction for us to simply quilt them. They may be long and thin and so need 'tweaking'. Often the printing doesn't give enough space between pictures for us to cut the panels up with a seam allowance, and a lot... and I really do mean a LOT of panels are just plain and simply wonk-illy printed!
Many panels are purchased and placed in a drawer waiting for a good idea... We can love them... but we don't always know what to do with them....
Do you find that?
Fran Cupcake had an idea...
|Tadaaaaah... Fran's Santa Panel transformed!|
Isn't it wonderful?
Santa really looks like he is peeking through the window.
|Loopy Lynn started this off by actually using her Santa Panel...|
As opposed to storing the panel for years, as we can often do!
She added splendid borders to make a lap size quilt...
