Decontructing a Quilt Panel: Part 1

by Judy Tucker

A friend recently gave me a Christmas quilt panel commenting, "This panel just says "Judy."  It does! It's the dog thing!  Black Labs are dear to my heart and that the Golden retrievers in the panel are pretty cute too!  I especially like the Golden wearing that pink ski hat!

On the right is a photo of one of my fabric surface designs "StarPower"  that I had printed at  I had intended to use this fabric to make a whole cloth quilt, but don't the colors and the stars look perfect with this panel?

Since I don't love all the graphics in the Christmas dog panel, so I'm going to deconstruct it and add some fussy cut 8 pointed stars to make a little Christmas quilt!  Next week I'll show what I've done!
