Introduction

Many designers of fabric collections incorporate panels into their lines. The collection is designed around a central theme. The panel is usually the focus of the collection. In other words, all the complementary fabrics of the collection will coordinate with the panel. Many times you will see colors and motifs from the panel in the matching fabrics. It’s not necessary to use the panels but it can be fun.

Fabric panels have endless possibilities. If you use your imagination they’re a wonderful source for quick and easy bed quilts, lap quilts, baby quilts and wall hangings. Once you discover them and understand how they can be used, it will open up a whole new area of quilting.

There are so many ways to use panels. Some are meant to be used whole, and some have other components that can be used for other projects or incorporated into unique settings. You’re only limited by your imagination.

In this book we will explore some basic skills and ideas for incorporating panels into your quilting projects. Because panels and collections are ever-changing, this book will show the different ways to lay them out, but the finished projects will strictly be your choice. For the most part, you can drop a standard panel into many of the layouts. Because panels are unique, you may have to make adjustments; therefore, we will also discuss ways to tweak and change settings.

Once you have selected the panel size and have read through some of the options for your size panel, you’ll never think of them as cheater quilts again. Learn to use panels as they were meant to be used—as the focal point of a quilted project or as an element. Just think of a panel as one more opportunity for design. There are no set rules for panel use. If you can think it and have the skills, you can incorporate it into any project you wish. Don’t limit yourself. Be creative.

Usually the journey begins with a beautiful panel you see in your local quilt shop, online or one that’s been lying around in your sewing room—one you may have bought because you loved it, but never quite figured out how to use it. This book will give you options for possible uses.

Panels come in several sizes and layouts. We will divide the layouts into size categories. These are only meant to get your wheels turning and give you basic starting layouts. Don’t let them limit you. If you have an idea, run with it. The purpose of this book is to guide you on a creative journey incorporating panels into your quilting. It will show you some of the many possibilities and hopefully spark new options for your quilting. Keep an open mind.

Types of Panels

Fabric, for the most part, including panels, is printed using a repeat. Standard fabric printing is usually done in 6, 8, 12, 24 or 36 repeating increments. Most panels are 24, but that doesn’t mean it is 24" of usable fabric. Most panels have an area around the printed design that is void of design or that is a solid or complementary print. This makes it easier to use the entire printed design without losing part of it in a seam. It also allows for a bit of individual creativity.

When purchasing a panel, these are things to consider:

•How will it be used—whole or cut
