So many wonderful panels!!
The ColorWorks Concepts line of fabrics has seven amazing panels that coordinate with all of the other prints and ColorWorks solids. The panels are great to use on their own or with the other fabrics. If you need a baby quilt in a hurry, adding a simple border to a panel is often the way to go, but let’s look at 3 ways to use fabric panels for quilt blocks and borders.
Make a bag – or two
In my QUILTsocial blog posts last month, I showed how to make a retreat bag using the Soho panel – a beautiful New York Beauty style fabric. Panels can be cut into sections to make a bag like my retreat tote or many other types of tote bags.
Chop it up – to make blocks
Adding different types of borders
A simple frame border is a fast and easy way to make a quick small quilt, but if you are looking for a bigger, more complex project, you can add more and more borders with different designs to make a statement!
Use them for borders
The panels can also be cut up to make borders for your quilt. Their large designs can be used to finish off a quilt beautifully.
Tomorrow we use our panel to make borders for our quilt
The ColorWorks Concepts panels can be used in so many amazing ways – I think I’ll just blockade myself in my sewing room and not come out for days!! Now that we explored all of the creative ways to use fabric panels, tomorrow we’re going to cut up the Mod Squad panel to make borders for our flying geese quilt.
