Some of the printed panels available to quilters today are just so stinkin cute! I always feel like i don’t know what to do with a panel, but after quilting these two quilts for Emily I realized that sometimes simple is best. KISS – Keep It Simple Silly!

Look at this fun frog quilt.

Emily took a really cute panel and added three borders to it. Voila! Cuteness overload for some sweet child.

To keep the fun vibe of the quilt I used an E2E design that emphasized the leaping of the frogs.

The design is called Cascade that I purchased from Urban Elementz. If you’ve been around here for awhile, you know I get a lot of designs from them. Cascade is so fun and I’ve used it on several different quilts. I thought it was perfect for this panel.

The second panel quilt I got to play with was this fun one:

Again, a panel and three borders and a finished quilt top is born. These goats are having fun playing with the bees, so of course I had to stitch some bees!

Perfection!

These were really fun to quilt up and I finished them both on the same day. I love having projects like these to act as a sort of breather between custom quilting jobs. Emily has dropped off two more panel quilts, so I’m excited to load them in the next few days.

Happy quilting!
