COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS

COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS

I am starting to pack my possessions in preparation for the move to a senior apartment. My stash is being used to wrap breakable items instead of using paper that I will have to throw out later. That is how I found the printed square “Count Your Blessings” that is used in this wall hanging. Here are some ideas for using fabric panels in quilts. Enjoy. I found this square on March 12, and sewed this quilt top between March…

STARS IN PINK AND GREEN

STARS IN PINK AND GREEN

I admit it – I like cheater blocks and novelty fabric panels. They can make quick and easy projects. And so Stars in Pink and Green was born. Back in the 1990’s I had six of these really attractive looking stars in pink, but I was stumped with what to do with them. They were pretty and feminine, but once home the question was “now what?” One of those aw-ha moments, and digging through the stash produced the answer. I…

CHRISTMAS CARDINALS WALL HANGING

CHRISTMAS CARDINALS WALL HANGING

I found this “cheater” panel and the matching cardinal fabric at Paducah one year, and just had to make something for Christmas from it. This cute Christmas Cardinals wall hanging was just fun to make. It could have been much quicker if I had not gotten distracted with other quilting projects. I started out with the center panel, added some leftover pieced squares, then a border in red. The outside border is the coordinating cardinal fabric. The machine quilting is…

SAILING SHIPS OF OLD QUILT (another panel quilt)

SAILING SHIPS OF OLD QUILT (another panel quilt)

SAILING SHIPS OF OLD QUILT: These blocks are cheater blocks and the blue/gray alternate blocks look like waves. The red border around each ship was part of the panel. The outside border was a solid navy blue. I like using panels for quilts – they make for a fun project and a way to save time on piecing or applique. Think outside the box and be creative. My personal problem with fabric panels (maybe yours too) is that I see…

PROUD POLAR BEARS

PROUD POLAR BEARS

Don’t have a lot of time? Want something fun, quick, and personalized in a quilt? Pre-printed fabric panels or blocks are a great way to do this. This quilt, Proud Polar Bears, went together super quick and easy. I used two coordinating prints to go with the polar bear blocks. I chose a fabric that looked like snow flakes for alternate blocks. The second fabric was all white animals for the border. The quilt top was simple and easy to…

BRIGHT & HAPPY BUGS QUILT (or a fabric panel quilt)

This Bright & Happy Bugs Quilt is a fun nap size quilt for the four-year granddaughter “C”. It’s hard not to smile at these cheerful, colorful bugs.

The Bright & Happy Bugs quilt stays at our home and when “C” wants to curl up, read, or nap she gets it from the rocking chair and curls up in it. Usually…
