This is my favorite of all the panels that I have cut up so far.. Being born in Quebec, I call this one “Quebec’s Backyard” it really reminds me of fall down east. This quilt was ment to be a lap quilt for my husband, after entering it into my 1st quilt show in 2014 and it won a ribbon for best use of orange and also tied for 1st for viewers choice it now resides on the wall in the bedroom.
About 3 years ago I purchased a panel that I wanted to turn into a fall runner for my dinning room table. I’m not keen on leaving things the way they are so decided to cut it up and rebuild it on a horizontal setting to make my harvest runner. This is The panel that I used.
2 years after making this runner I found an other panel and it also was cut up to make an other horizontal runner.
Here’s a Halloween Panel, I made a small runner and a place mat from this one.
I have an aunt that gave me a nativity panel and it also got cut up to make a lap quilt that I gave back to her for Christmas. I took the starts in the corners and built up starts to make my corner blocks. I echoed the diamonds that was found int the printed border of the panel to make this lovely lap quilt.
I also ended up with a snowman panel from my aunt also. this one i cut each shape that i wanted to keep and added window panes to make all the shapes the same then i added shadow box and sashing to make this lap quilt.
This one is a Stonehenge panel that I made One block wonder with.
This was some pillow blocks of whales with a decorative border strip.
This one was stretched over a wood frame and hung in a window to make a cotton stained glass version. I hate curtains and this gives me abit of privacy.
I sure hope that this gives you an idea that you can let your imagination fly and go on cut up those panels.
Interesting use of panels. Thanks.
your very welcome.
I certainly relate to your love of the fall panel. I, too, was born in Quebec and now living in BC, I miss the wonderful fall colors we saw in Quebec.
At least living in bc you still have the crystal lakes like Quebec had. we have slews miss those too.
