Answers to some questions

Quite a few of you have asked about the pattern and fabric line for the Lover's Lane quilt. The fabric is Flirtations by Moda and it came out in late 2007 or early 2008. The pattern is Sunny Lanes which is the Pat Speth's first Nickel Quilt book.

Now, some have asked about the placemats that I made. My buddy Jeanette showed me how to do these last year. They are pretty flexible in that you can adjust the sizes of everything. The coffee placemats ended at 13.75" X 19.25". I think that I was trying to get them to end at 14 X 20, but with the way I finished them, it took a little more from the pieces. The two end strips are 3" and the 2 accent strips are 1" finished. The main fabric is 12" X 13.75". I made the top pieces, used leftover batting pieces, and cut the bottom pieces. I layered everything with the right sides of the fabric together, sewed around the outside and turned them right sides out and then quilted them. Or, you can quilt them and then bind them. They are pretty flexible. And easy!

Happy stitching!
