Why do manufacturers persist in making panels with eight images on them? Eight is either too many or not enough to make a balanced quilt. Nine is a good number, as that can be three blocks by three, or even five is OK as you can pad them out with plain blocks. But eight! (Of course, I do actually know why they make these panels, as two rows of four images fill the fabric nicely. I suppose the question is more, why do we buy them?!). So, along with most people, I have one of these panels, and decided to work out how to use it.
