Here are the official results of my summer/fall immersion in using printed panels to inspire quilts. (I have one more panel, designed to be placemats. That can wait for the new year.)
I truly don’t remember what started me on this journey, but it led to me finding these panels on sale at eQuilter.
The last one, with the cardinals, was the simplest. I just left the panel alone and added borders. On the others, I either added patchwork or cut apart and framed the blocks.
The top three are baby quilts, and the bottom three are throw-sized. I think my favorite is the one with the baby animals. The Moon baby quilt has already sold in my Etsy shop, and the others are available there.
This wasn’t among my goals for this year, but at least the Moon quilt is low volume, so that counts!
Thanks for playing along.

Great job! I try to record what inspires me on my blog otherwise I can’t remember. I think exercises like this are good for a person’t creativity. I wonder if such an exercise would be good if one’s sew-jo had gone on vacation?

I think this would be perfect for that. There are great panels out there now.
