    I just loved this pattern and it seemed easy enough for a beginner. It was fun using my repro's too! The colors are more true in the picture where my shadow is! One day I'll learn how to shoot pictures! Now to tackle quilting. I'm scared, very scared! LOL!

    I don't know how they came up with cheese and crackers but it sure is cute, those fabrics look very nice i it. Have you decided how you're going quilt it?

    I like it. It is really darling.

    And I know how you feel about trying to quilt it yourself.

    Mimisharon offered to give me lessons if I let her vacation here in Pensacola (at my home.) Maybe you can offer the same? LOL

    This is a beauty! This may just be "the one" I'm looking for to use a particular assortment of scraps. You sure did a nice job. Sara

    No pressure on your making a decision, Chele! It's a wonderful top, look at some of the quilting sights and maybe do a little practice thingee.

    My favorite quilting word.......thingee!

    Yep, going to Pensacola one of these days. She promised she's a good cook and we can quilt at the beach......what would keep me away? lol lol

    Nancy, I used 10 different repro FQ's. The pattern is designed for fat quarters. The white is a white on white paisley. The middle bars end up being 2-1/4" x 4-1/4" each.

    Thanks for all the feedback! I'm not sure how I want this quilted. Probably an all-over design. Puzzle pieces maybe? I may hire a long armer! I've only attempted stitch in the ditch.

    Chele, That is a very nice pattern & you did a great job piecing it. Were you making it for anyone in particular? Be sure to take another photo when you're done quilting it & share it again! Thanks!

    Chele~~That is really, really pretty! Nice work!

    Kathy~~I see why it is called cheese and crackers....bc the large strips "sandwich" a small strip....like cheese in the middle of two crackers.

    Repros was the perfect choice for this quilt. How beautiful!! It's so lively. You did a really fine job putting this together. Have you considered hand quilting it or have you decided to machine quilt it? Whatever you choose, you've got a winner on your hands. :)

    How big is this quilt?

    Very pretty. Is that an Atkinson Designs pattern? She is my favorite commercial pattern maker - her instructions are always so clear and accurate.

    It is an Atkinson Design. The instructions were very clear cut. Here's a link if you want the pattern: http://www.atkinsondesigns.com/patterns/patternDetail.asp?productID=135

    Your quilt certainly does the pattern justice! When I looked at the site you gave us, it looked a little blah. What a difference your color choices and sewing have done for it!

    I tired this pattern and was disappointed in my try. I used snowflake patterns in flannel. It was a fun one to make, but the colors just didn't stand out very well. I loved the photo from Chele so much, and may even try it again. Sara

    This was flannel in the crackers and cheese pattern. What a difference color makes!

    Oh Sara, I love your take on cheese and crackers. The blues and whites are very wintery. It is a fun pattern. I'd try it again too. I may need to go get some blue and white fabric! :D

    Chele - just found your post. I get onto this site and get sidetracked so easily! There are just too many good things to see! LOVE your cheese & crackers! How did you end up finishing it? Loved Sara's too - and as you say, hers is wintery and yours is more spring like. You should BOTH be proud! Thanks for sharing and giving us all even more ideas..
