Last post I had shown a picture of the quilt I made for my (future) granddaughter. But I was prepared..I made one for my (future) grandson also. Oh yes I did...and actually I made two of each..exactly the same..just in case my DS or DD decided "theirs" was better for "their" child. So no need for any bickering...if they both have girls first...done..if they both have boys first...done..if they have one of each...done...Like I said I am prepared..or hmmm..maybe a bit desperate for a grandchild? The one I made for the "boy" was from a panel ( yeah I cheated after all the pinwheels in the girls) but the panel was so crooked I had to cut each alphabet square out and put a small sashing in between. I do NOT use panels any more. Lesson learned. I can make it crooked squares all by myself-I do not need to pay good money for them.

Love the 'boy' quilt. I have only used a panel once and it was square.. guess I got lucky!

If you prewash a panel and stretch it diagonally (both ways) while it is still wet it will help straighten it out (works for plaid and striped fabric as well). What part of Ontario are you in? I'm near Peterborough.
