I need ideas for a piece of tapestry panel I received to make into a quilt of some sort or another project.

Maybe, get some wool felt and surround this piece with it in borders for even blocks and make a wall hanging with this as the center. An idea.

Would you just not add other blocks and leave it like this with the felt?

Carey, I am looking at that and am at a real loss - I was thinking of things like the padding for an antique chair - my Great Aunt used to make cross stitch designs and then use them in the seat cushion of the chair - I have one of her chairs here that she did that with - and this would look beautiful in one of those chairs.  I might go and get some more tapestry fabric from Hancock's or JoAnn's and make it large enough to use as a small welcoming rug to a room... not sure if you want to make a rug out of it.  What were you thinking?

I think I'd just bind it and make a wall hanging.  It looks thick -- if it is, then I'm not sure I'd want to surround it with cotton blocks.  But that is just me.

OR, find an old frame, someplace, and just frame it.  The search for just the right frame could take you on a day of antiquing.

I agree with Sukochi. I would frame it. Since it is a thicker fabrick you may find an old frame at an antique store if not. Try a Hobby Lobby or a Frame shop.

Wasn't sure yet. Yet I am thinking of framing it or something now or something similar.

Would it work to make a pillow with it.

Try the second hand shops for old framed pictures.  You don't have to like the picture, just the frame and they are much, much cheaper than a regular retail store.  I get 90% of my frames that way.  Take your piece with you or piece of paper the same size (you may have to tape a couple of pieces together) so you can find the right size.  Don't forget you can mat as well, just be sure to use acid free
