Have you ever used panels in quilts? My first “quilt” was a pre-quilted Snoopy panel and I only had to add binding to finish it. I can’t say I did a very good job of that, but my son didn’t care! I made several quilts early on using panels, but after a while, I began to look on them with disdain. In the last few years, I have come back around and decided I love them again. I used one in this bow tie quilt.
And I have another one that I purchased last summer that I just love:
Well, last week a bloggy friend decided to de-stash a bit and I bought some lovely pieces of yardage from her. When I opened the package, I found these lovely panels inside that she had sent along as a gift!
Aren’t they amazing? I just love them all! And she could not have known, but they came in the middle of a tough few days. Thanks, Barb!
I hope your day brings a surprise blessing as well!
