Quilt designer: Roseann Meehan Kermes
From American Patchwork & Quilting, October 2007

Designer Notes: Designer Roseann Meehan Kermes used the Pumpkin Glen fabric collection by Kim Schaefer for Andover to make an alternate version of her Easy Baby Panel Quilt.

Most preprinted panels are 42" in height (with the panel height running from selvage to selvage), but panel width can vary. Her original quilt design was based on a 32-1/2x42" panel, so Roseann added an inner border to the side edges of this panel to make it 32-1/2" wide. For a more pleasing proportion; she also added the same width inner border to the top and bottom edges.
