      Perfect to practice some fmq and make a table cloth or wall-hanging.

      Make some echoing around the bird and some of the leaf and then straight lines following the lattice.

      It would be great !

      God, Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
      The stash to make a quilt to help me cope,
      A quilt to give to comfort those I love in times of hurt, fear and uncertainty.
      And the courage to keep on sewing when life itself seems held together by a single thread of hope.

        very pretty fabric - warm wishes pattern would be good and I think the BQ2 pattern would be perfect as well

          Beautiful panels! If you're looking for a quilt size project, how about Jenny's "The Illusion Quilt" that would set each & every bird apart and allow their beauty to show through. Might have to modify the side strips to match the size of your blocks though. Or I think she's got a tutorial called " Sashing Ideas." Happy Sewing & please let us know what you decide!

            It’s more work but I would cut on those skinny sashing lines and put each bird in an attic window setting. Then I would get a “wood” print or leaf print for the outside border.

              I would cut the blocks apart and add coordinating fabrics for extra blocks. image.jpg
              This made a good size lap quilt 60 x 80. It was a perfect gift for a bird loving friend. I added the friendship star cornerstone (M*QC tutorial). image.jpg
              If you still love the fabric, the inspiration will follow.

              Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

              Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

                I love yours Suzanne. The blocks I have are huge by comparison. I wish they were smaller. These are almost the size of placemats and I don't want to do another placemat in my whole entire life LOL. I am getting a lot of good ideas here though and I love what others are doing.

                I do like the idea of putting them in the window frame settings. Not sure if I'm better off doing the yellow and blue ones separately as either quilts or window shades. I think it's the size of those insets that is causing me the creative problem :-/ Or maybe, God forbid, I'm no longer a bird person LOL

                If it takes me much longer to become enthusiastic about something I might just put them in the I Dont Want it You can have It group for some fat quarters or something.

                    There is a pattern where you take two identical panels.....slice them lengthwise....sew them together....and repeat width wise. Someone did this in the forum and said they would send the free pattern. Let me dig and see if I can find said pattern.

                          Pinterest has a lot of panel quilts. I’m a sucker for novelty and panels, but have done just a few. I don’t see how to post a picture or I’d add one.
