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

Designer Notes: Designer Roseann Meehan Kermes used the Wiggles & Giggles flannel collection by Lynette Jensen for RJR Fabrics for this version of her Charity Panel Quilt.

Most preprinted panels are 42" in height (with the panel height running from selvage to selvage), but panel width can vary. This quilt design is based on a 32—1/2x42" panel. If your preprinted panel is narrower than 32—1/2", add an inner border (see Pumpkin Panel Quilt for an example of how Roseann did this.)

1‑32-1/2x42" preprinted panel (quilt center)
4‑18x22" pieces (fat quarters) assorted light prints (blocks, side border)
1-3/8 yards total assorted medium prints (blocks, side border)
1/2 yard orange diagonal stripe (binding)
3-1/8 yards backing fabric
55x64" batting

Finished quilt: 48-1/2x58"
Finished block: 8" square

Quantities are for 100% cotton, 44/45"-wide fabrics. Measurements include 1/4" seam allowances. Sew with right sides together unless otherwise stated
