    Exclamation Need ideas!



    I have a yard of the pillow panel fabric, it's got 4 panels , 2 are the same the other 2 are mirror image. I've got a yard of contrasting larger print fabric and a1 1/2 yards of a smaller semi contrasting fabric. These are all of horses running in the snow. I need ideas or web sites on how to convert these to a quilt for a full size bed.

    what i did( but it wasn't full size) was to make a border around each panle, then again around the edges. the more boarders the bigger the quilt.

    I like Kim's idea. You could also put sashing between the panels to extend the width and length to what you would like.

    Thanks Kim and Dee. I'll do that.

    That sounds like the chicken pillow pattern at fatquartershop.com that I finally found that I'll try using wider sashing and borders. Thanks again.

    Thank you! I have some beautiful duck panels that CJ gave me last year and I couldn't figure out how to make it a larger than twin size quilt so I could use it on my bed. Now I know! Thank you so much! I could even pick several colors out of the panels and make several different colored blocks to make it a king sized quilt if I wanted to. Man I'm so glad you posted this question.
