Have you seen the panels in quilt shops with words - I guess meant to inspire - about dancing, quilting, America, roses, etc., but don't know what to do with them? Here's what I did with an Americana panel.
I joined 4 sections of the panel with a 1" x 8" flying geese foundation pattern and a 1" square at the center of the quilt. With the borders, the quilt is about 21" square. Great for a little wall hanging or table topper. Also a nice give for the veteran or service man or woman in your family.
This foundation pattern is in Volume 1 of supplemental patterns. Give it a try!
