5 clever ideas to use the panel print of COLORBOX -and a GIVEAWAY

Mittwoch, 6. September 2017

Last week I introduced you to our newest collection MODERNBACKGROUNDS COLORBOX.

A special addition to the collection is a so-called cheater-print or panel. There are three different panels, each representing one of the three colour groups, white eggshell and fog.


 Low volumes are spread in a checkerboard pattern overlaid from big dots in solid colours and they make for lots of fast and cool projects.

Each cut is a multiple of 12”, which is a great format for projects such as

baby-quilts

36" x 44"    

48“ x 48“    


It makes also for  a great

sheet for a baby crib



or table runners, 

12“ x 80“    

 or pillows

14“ x 14“   


and the solid strips on both sides of the panel print can be used as the seam allowance, allowing two panels to be joined for an

extra wide backing, 

without messing up the pattern.

‘MODERN BACKGROUNDS COLORBOX’ will ship to stores in January 2018.

But YOOOUUU, yes I mean you! are possibly the lucky person to get a panel right away. Because we have a nice giveaway for you!



All you have to do is leaving a comment and letting us know, what you  would make out of such a panel print. Maybe your idea is revolutionary new, who knows .
😊
Don’t forget to add your email address, so we can inform the randomly drawn lucky winner instantly. Giveaway will be closed on the ....10th of September 2017 at 6pm

Good luck,

Brigitte

I think this panel ( which is absolutely brilliant, by the way! ) would make a modern and striking Christmas Tree skirt! Thanks for the chance to win! Greetings from 🇩đŸ‡ș!

Willa hat gesagt…

Maybe the suggested baby quilt although there really are no babies in my world. The table runners would be enjoyed here. I like making bags and tech cozies and could see this print working there too.

Steffi hat gesagt…

Klasse, ganz klasse, ich tue mich ja mit Panelen schwer, aber dieses gefĂ€llt mir ausgesprochen gut! Ich wĂŒrde mir einen ganz langen TischlĂ€ufer davon nĂ€hen.
Liebe GrĂŒĂŸe

Simply a baby quilt for my new born granddaughter Eurydice XXX

GranChris hat gesagt…

I like that idea of using it as a backing. Of course it would be wonderful just as a throw or pillowcases.

pajtr hat gesagt…

I want to make that beautiful baby quilt!!... But, I also want to make a tote bag, market bags, pillows, and a cover for a laptop computer!
Thank you!

Nothing earth shattering but I am a Project Linus co-ordinator for my area (projectlinusuk.org.uk/) and I would use it to make a quilt for a child at the local hospital

Michele T hat gesagt…

I love this panel!!! My first thought was that it would make the perfect baby quilt and I would hand quilt it with beautiful stitches!!!

b hat gesagt…

these beautiful panels would make lovely charity quilts of our children's hospital!

Rosa hat gesagt…

These panels would be great to use it in the back. borders or a simply quilt,only adding the backing and quilting it.

Barb Neiwert hat gesagt…

The baby quilt pulled at my heart strings! I'd definitely make a baby quilt for my future granddaughter!!! haileybarb at gmail dot com.

FS hat gesagt…

I make small to medium sized quilts for my veterinarian clinic. The quilts are sold to clients and the funds used for needy animals. The beautiful, low contrast panels would appeal to anyone wanting a modern design/colorway.

Edie hat gesagt…

Dear Brigitte, I love your fabric designs. This low volume panel is so versatile. I would make a wall hanging. Thank you. Edie Taylor at sedithtaylor@gmail.com.

Marjorie Levy hat gesagt…

I love this collection! I am planning to make a table runner and a quilt. Since I want the quilt to be larger than a baby quilt, I will cut out each block and sash it in a bright color. This would make a fast and beautiful quilt!

Tina Virshup hat gesagt…

This would make a warm, cozy and bright throw to compliment my living room furniture!

Hildy hat gesagt…

I would make a smaller baby quilt and use some of the panel to make a coordinating baby bag.

Heidi hat gesagt…

Wonderful to see this modern panel and I love the simple baby quilt, but I would be tempted to cut it up and re-arrange those blocks. Just because that is what we quilter's do lol..

Love the tree skirt idea, that could be fun!!

Nancy H hat gesagt…

Looks VE the idea of using for a backing! Thanks for the giveaway.

Linda Fleming hat gesagt…

These panels are spectacular. I'd love to make some lap quilts to keep us cozy on cold winter's nights!

Judith hat gesagt…

Liebe Brigitte,

Diese Kollektion ist durch und durch einfach wundervoll. Am besten gefĂ€llt mir einfach die Idee des Babyquilts. Ich brĂ€uchte nĂ€mlich einen im April und ich finde das hier frische Farben und eine benötige Portion low volume eine moderne und frische Variante sind. Außerdem stelle ich mir auch einen Vorhang im Kinderzimmer aus dem Panel gut vor.

Liebe GrĂŒĂŸe

Mona Phelps hat gesagt…

I think a baby quilt would be wonderful!

Janna Saeger hat gesagt…

I would combine this panel with a Pokey Little Puppy one I have make a baby quilt.

Manuela Sattler hat gesagt…

Liebe Brigitte, ich wĂŒrde einen TischlĂ€ufer und evtl. noch ein Kissen aus deinen wunderschönen Stoffen nĂ€hen. Gruß Manuela

Ines hat gesagt…

Mit Panels habe ich ja noch nie genĂ€ht, aber dieses fröhliche Panel könnte ich mir als Bankpolster fĂŒr unsere "Schuhbank" im Flur vorstellen. Die Bank ist ursprĂŒnglich ein StĂŒck einer alter Eichen-Eckbank, hat unten eine Ablage fĂŒr Schuhe (und drunter passen auch noch Schuhe). Und oben kann man sich zum Schuheanziehen draufsetzen. Und unser großer Flur brĂ€uchte schon lange etwas Farbe!

Carol hat gesagt…

I would make the panel the center of a quilt with wide plain borders and make the quilting in the borders a major feature of the quilt - maybe thread colors that echo the panel's colors? Maybe straight line quilting in multiple colors.

Quiltgirlie hat gesagt…

I would like to sew a tablerunner.

Cathy Calloway hat gesagt…

Beautiful panel. I would love to make a quilt, setting them on point with some brighter sashing & borders for a lap quilt.

Sockentick hat gesagt…

Ich wĂŒrde ganz klar ein paar Kissen daraus nĂ€hen. Die Idee mit den Kreisen in der Mitte, passt genau in mein Beuteschema und ist fĂŒr eine eierschalfarbene Couch perfekt ;-)

Maria hat gesagt…

Love this panel, so cool and clever and well executed!
It's multipurpose, you can cut it up for all kind of reasons. The first ides that i got when i saw it, was to make a curtain, not folded, but straight. Before the window, so it subdues the outsidelight and gives you the opportuniuty to see outside through the lowvolume parts with the colourcircles as big cheerful dots. And when the wind blows a bit, it will move, the panel will be totally in the right spot or function.

Cathi hat gesagt…

I'd definitely make a baby quilt with the panel as I need to make one soon. I'll be looking for this panel when it's available as I'd love to make a sewing machine cover, a sleeve to protect a drawing tablet and a purse with it.

Sonst mag ich ja keine Panels, aber so schick und modern sind die echt klasse! Daraus wĂŒrde ich ganz spontan ein Bettnestchen und einen Babyquilt machen. Aber fĂŒr Kissen und TischlĂ€ufer könnte ich mir das auch sehr gut vorstellen.
