Panels Have Come A Long Way!
Panels have always made creating quilts fast, but you won’t call today’s panels “cheaters” as we did yesterday’s panel fabrics. Gail Kessler, fabric designer and Director of Marketing for Andover Fabrics, joins Jodie to show her quilts made from panel fabrics from Andover fabric lines, many of which you would never guess are made from panel fabric. Gail shows quilts made from “Very Hungry Caterpillar” and “Brown Bear, Brown Bear” Eric Carl and “Cogsmo” by Cosmo Cricket are examples of updated kids quilt panels. To prove that panels aren’t just for kids anymore, Gail shows “Painted Posies” by Erinn Kennedy, “Fete Des Fleurs – Tulips” by Marjorie Post and her own “Lights, Camera, Action.” You’d never guess these lovely quilts started as panel fabric!
