2012 Trend Watch - Panels!

I have been seeing a trend from the fabric companies this year.  Panels.  Everyone is offing them in their lines and they have them for every holiday and season.  We have always seen and loved panels - this year StitchCraft had panels that you could cut out and create a tree skirt and set of cosmetic/eyeglass bags.  Look for mini panels within panes to make bags, tags, little pillows and of course Christmas stockings.
The first panels to arrive this year are these super-cute children's panels from Wilmington Prints and South Seas Imports.  Need a quick and simple childs' quilt?  Look no further.

Above is Caterwalling.  Not kids necessarily, just cats!  And adorable ones at that.  Great coordinating fabrics are available for all of these panels.  There are free patterns for the children's panels available from the companies.  Visit our links page to get there.
