I have an Irish Blessings panel from block party studios. It has 3 panels...2 are actually 8 1/2" squares and one is like 14x18 I think.

I would like to make a 'quick quilt' for a wedding at the end of October and include these panels.  I am usually pretty good at coming up with a pattern or adjusting one I already have but this time I am drawing a major blank.... I am thinking off white, green and maybe blue..brides favorite colors and the green will bring out the color in the panel.

Oh, almost forgot...I would like to make a lap quilt!

Thanks everyone! I can't wait to hear some suggestions and get my brain flowing again!

Could you post a pic of your panel?  I think better when I have a visual,

Joy,

I love their panels & shirts - so fun!  They have patterns & kits for some of the panels or you can improvise at it sounds like you want to do.  That's what I did with one of the dog panels:

There were more "blocks" in the panel than I used, but I just wanted a number that would work with the size I was going for.

This is a link to their free pattern web site: http://www.blockpartystudios.com/free_patterns_instructions.asp

Good idea, I didn't think about that! I took these off the website because I still haven't purchased a new camera! One is just the panel and the other is showing them done. I think the second shows better the size of the material.

Thanks, everyone, for the compliments :-)  My dog-owning friend got this & gave it to her sister who owns a dog grooming business - it hangs in her shop. I'm humbled.

Block Party Studios is often at the quilt shows, so you can get a look at their products there.  Their shop is in Nevada, Iowa, near Ames.  Liz K very kindly drove some of us there during the Midwest retreat.

Joy, I don't know if it's just me, but I can't see your images - are these the ones you posted:

I'm glad the Midwest retreat-ers were able to visit Block Party Studio.   The owner, Jeanne, passed away on Sept 14 after a long battle with breast cancer.  I've heard that her husband will be continuing the business.   The panels discussed were her creation.   Her last ones involved fighting cancer and another on a tribute to nurses.  She will be missed.

Thanks for the update Annette. I didn't know she'd passed.
