    Default Childs Play with Nate and Kate Panel - Need Ideas

    So I purchased these two panels, (actually two in boy, and two in girl) and I am hoping for some feedback on what I should do with them. I want to make a quilt with them, maybe with the panel in the center and a row of blocks on the sides. I don't want to add too much to the top or bottom as it is already quite long for a baby quilt. I just at this second had an idea that I could cut the little memory blocks out and use them as a small block on their own... Maybe put the growth chart on the back... Any suggestions would be appreciated. Pretend these are your next project, what would you do?

    The pictures are kind of small to tell what they are. From what I can see I think I'd cut the small squares apart, sash them in a solid and use them to surround the main panel.

    Maybe these pictures are better, the boys one is still a little small

    That worked a little better. I still think cutting the small squares apart and sashing them in a matching solid and surrounding or even just placing them along each side of the main panel would work. If you wanted two rows on each side, rather than sashing you could alternate each square with a square of a solid in a patchwork design.

    I like that idea, what if I did two rows of squares on each side? The first with three prints and four solids and the second row with four prints and three solids? That would really even the height with the length!

    I think the small squares you have here would look better with the plain squares between them. It would spread things out a bit, easier to look at. So the 2 rows on each side should work great.
