From Some Odd Bits of Fabric

When a friend recently brought me some leftover fabrics that I ended up making my Bollywood quilt out of, tucked in the bottom of the bag was also a colorful panel.  Rather than put it in the scrap bin, I decided to sew it up into a couple quick projects.


First, there was a long and narrow section that ran along the selvage.  It was an easy finish to add a lovely border and quilt some straight lines. 


 A pretty print for the back and a navy Kona solid for the binding.


It is always good to have these little items around to give as gifts. 
And the colors in this are yummy!




The rest of the fabric panel consisted of a fun square design. 
Once again, I felt a simple border was all it needed.



The print for this one wasn't quite big enough so I had to use a little more of the Kona Navy.



 Another great piece waiting for gifting.....or keeping.  Hmmm...

I am not usually a fan of fabric panels but this one has great colors and a really pretty design.  I couldn't resist turning it into a finish.

Those are beautiful!! What a fun find from a bag of scraps! It looks like you have one to keep and one to save for gifting. The best of both worlds!

Isn't that pretty! Those panels are perfect for both of these! I've never been a fan of panels either. But these are just gorgeous! Why in the world would someone give it away?! These are not scraps!!

Wow! I'm also not a fan of panels, but those would be hard to resist - especially after seeing what you've done with them! Lovely!

Jasmine said...

What a great use for the panels. They are beautiful and I love the straight quilting.

Mary at Fleur de Lis Quilts said...

Those would make great gifts! I like that you have a gift stash at the ready. I don't generally do that but there are times that I could use a ready-made gift. I may have to give it a go. These panels are beautiful. I had no idea that any of the fabric companies had anything so nice in panels. I guess I should pay closer attention! Thanks for sharing your fabulous ideas!
