My first project is done! I usually avoid panels but I don't mind these digitally printed panels because there are options for trimmed size. I really loved this one even without noticing that the mountain was a flag! Chris noticed it yesterday. It isn't obvious up close but it's really clear in the photo. The narrow border fabric is from a coordinating print.
I'm really happy with the way it turned out.
It turned out so nice that I'm glad that I made 2 of them!
Next up is this project. It will take a little longer but it will also make 2 quilts.
There will be lots of time for sewing and crochet today because it's a rainy day. The next week should be beautiful so I can take a rainy day.
For Debbie, the yarn is Mandala in the collorway Narnia.

I'm not that crazy about panels either but your shading from light to dark in your strip borders is just so perfect with these panels. I didn't see the flag either until you pointed it out.

I love the strata of hand dyed fabrics used for accent borders.

GREAT quilts for veterans! The panels with your fabrics take them over the top! Beautiful view!

I am not crazy about panels either, but you did elevate these! Your border is spot on to enhance the panel.
