Back in January I went with my daughter to Ikea in Burlington. On the way I HAD to stop at a quilt store in Waterdown. Well they had a sample of this quilt hanging up with these exact colours and my daughter asked me if I could make that for her birthday, which is in January. Well OF COURSE I can, lets pick out the material! I want those exact colours she said. Well I was surprised but said to the lady "Can you collect me the exact same fabrics as your sample?"
So she did, we left, I put the top together and there it sits UNFINISHED. I think she should have been a bit clear on which birthday year she wanted it.
The pattern is Cheese 'n Crackers from Atkinsons Designs and if I had not seen the pattern made with these colours I would probably never would have purchased the pattern. The colours shown on the pattern cover is not very enticing at all. Goes to show you - it's all about colour!!. It was such an easy and fun pattern that I will do another one....eventually.

The first picture is from the package and the second is the one I made for my daughter.
I actually just love the colours in it. They look wild but go together so nice. I think it is the white that makes it stand out. Love. Love. Love. It.

I didn't like the colors on the pattern either. I did mine with golds/burgandy/greens. It turned out wonderful. Yours is great.
