I bought this panel years ago - it was so cute, I couldn't pass it up! I loved the retro feel and the non-xmassy colors. But then it sat. And sat and sat and sat. I just didn't know what to do with it, and didn't want to 'waste' it. However, when I opened up my holiday fabric box this week, I rediscovered it, and decided it was time to put it to use. I chose another holiday fabric to use as backing, found a scrap of batting the correct size, and basted it simply. I quilted around the squares, and machine bound it using leftover binding from other projects.
I think it will be cute on our dining room table during the holiday season!
