Panels Make Quilts Go Together Quickly!

Have you ever had a fabric panel catch your eye but not know what to do with it? In this video Jenny from Missouri Star Quilt Company shows us how to get creative with quilting panels – and how to mix them with charm squares and other pre-cuts.





In fact, many panels have matching pre-cuts available, making it easy to create a complementary border or other setting for a panel.

 

Some panels are meant to be used all in one piece. Others can be cut up and used as squares within a quilt. As Jenny says, let the fabric speak to you and suggest how it can be used.

There are a few things that are helpful to know when working with panels. Sometimes, like any fabric, they aren’t printed exactly on the straight grain. Don’t worry. There’s an easy solution for that. Click here for helpful tips for working with panels.
