Six Tips for Creating an Amazing Panel Quilt

If you’ve ever purchased a panel only to get it home and not know how to create a special quilt from it, then this class is for you! We’ll explore six common issues and problems inherent in most fabric panels and how to overcome each of them including how to square up wonky images, how to maneuver a large panel into a measurement that is easy to work with, how to do the math to add interesting borders and how to use panels in several interesting settings. This is a planning/design class, you do not need to bring your sewing machine.
