Deana: Panel Quilts

Val's Tuesday Archives has come and the topic is panel quilts.  At first I thought I could not participate because I don't do panel quilts.  After thinking about it, I realized that I have pieced some quilts using panel fabric.  So here are a couple of quilts I made that began with panels.  

They are both stack n wack quilts.  This is my design and I call it Hexagon Pleasure.  You can find the pattern in my 



It may look hard but with the use of the Super60 ruler by Sara Nephew, it is a snap and goes together in a 3-4 days.  It is so easy in fact that I have made more quilts from this quilt pattern than any other.


This one was made with a border panel.  I made this probably 14+ years ago. YIKES!  You can see that it is still basted; I need to finish the quilting.





In the photo below you can see what the panel looked like because I used it for the border.

The next two photos also show another part of the border that, in fact, used for a border.

This one was made with a Christmas panel.

I can't believe the first one is not quilted. Was it the first one you made with this pattern?
It was sure fun to make mine, and then to see how excited Stephanie was to get it!!

Both quilts are gorgeous, Deana! I would not have thought of using panels to make that kind of hexagones. They turned out quite beautiful. And, as usual, I love the your choices of colors. Have a great weekend!

Very clever!! I have a stack and whack waiting to be quilted too! Glad the ol' Tuesday ARchives inspired you to rejuvinate this quilt...11 years later!

So much to see as I went back for a second cruise through the post and realized it's been 14 plus years since! Oh my!
