Making Horizontal Panels Into Bed-size Quilts

I love the new digitized panels which doesn’t limit the size of the panel. BUT beds and throws are generally longer than they are wide, so what do you do to turn them into a usable size?

Gathering

This Villa Rosa Designs pattern “Gathering” provides a striking top and bottom border that highlights the panel without distracting from the panel. This pattern already is in the top 100. More are arriving this month.

What a great class! They could actually go home with a finished top! Why not offer them a deal on the machine quilting, backing and binding as well?
