Cheese Crackers, a finish . . . . .

So here are  my pieced cheese crackers.


And here are those blocks set on point and in the finished quilt top.  I'm amazed how setting the blocks on point changes their look, for the better!

Piecing this top was a breeze, creating a pleasing and random setting within each block was my only hurdle, but I always struggle with my fabric placement.  I used yellow, light orange, medium orange and dark orange fabric.  I used around the same amount of each in each block.



This is Lifetime Quilt Number 160 
The pattern is Cheese Crackers from the Simply Color Orange book by Vanessa Christenson
My top finished at 53" x 53" (the pattern is bigger, it finishes at 74" x 74".)
There are approximately 536 pieces.

This is the beginning of my orange phase!

  1. Wow, I love the setting on point! And random is really hard for me, too, somehow I always end up with a 'planed' randomness;-)
