Hello, friends! Today I’m happy to share a brand-new book written especially for use with Layer Cakes, Fast & Fun Lap Quilts. What is even more fun is that the book is written by a friend of mine, Melissa Cory. Melissa and I have both written on our quilting blogs for quite a while. We’ve also been able to meet in person on many occasions–at quilt market and when teaching at the same venue. I know you’ll love a sneak peek into this book today!
Fast & Fun Lap Quilts + Table Runner
Fast & Fun Lap Quilts book contains 9 different patterns, all for use with 10″ squares. I knew right away that I wanted to make a fun table runner using the blocks from the first quilt in the book, Three in a Row. I do love the cornflower blue in our Emma collection and decided to feature those prints, although a scrappy version would have been equally as beautiful!
Three in a Row Quilt
I love that the Three in a Row Quilt finishes at such a nice size (54 ½″ x 65″) and uses just one Layer Cake! Of course, this design also lends itself well to scraps. I think this would also make a great leaders and enders project because the block sections could be pieced and then put together at a later time. The fabrics in Melissa’s quilt are from the One Fine Day collection by Bonnie & Camille for Moda Fabrics.
I couldn’t finish up this post about the Fast & Fun Lap Quilts book without sharing one more quilt included in the book. I love the Diamond Dash (don’t think I’ve ever met a churn dash quilt I didn’t like) quilt which is sewn with our Seashore Drive fabrics!

I enjoy reading your journey and liove looking at your quilts. Just retired after working 45 1/2 years and loosing my husband from 9/11 eight later. I pick up quilting again and starting my own journey slowly. I am looking forward to read and see more quilts with you and your daughter.

Hi Sherri, I was just wondering if we are going to be able to pin your quilt pictures like we have been doing in the past. I love your quilts and always pinned them on my Pinterest boards. Thanks for all you do!
