    My quilting teacher said they're not "cheater panels" -- they are "efficiency panels" :lol: :lol: And your quilt is amazing. I've thought about doing one like this, and may have to add it to me Future UFOs list. :lol:

    ...that's pretty awesome. What exactly is cheaters cloth, though? It looks like the blocks were supposed to be applique, did it come already done in a kit and that's what makes it a cheater quilt?

    I love that. I will not say cheater again. I have quite a few left to do for charity quilts.

    This is a beautiful quilt. Love how you put this together.

    It was in all of the LQS at least a year ago. There was actually a whole bolt of it at Sauder's Sale in Lancaster earlier this summer. I almost purchased it. I have some other yardage similar that was made by another fabric company. It tends to have more of a red green theme which was typical of the period. You might be able to get some of it if you go on line and look for the fabric line by Mimi Dietrich.

    A quick internet search led me to this website:

    http://www.honeybeefabrics.com/store...uct=mimiblocks


    Looks like they've got the same "cheaters blocks" from the woman you were speaking of, and it looks like they've got like 50 yards left! Hope this helps :)
