{Sew} Modern Monday #25

It's {Sew} Modern Monday time!
{Sew} Modern Monday at Canoe Ridge Creations

I hope you are all having a wonderful 4th of July weekend!
Today's {Sew} Modern Monday finish has been a long time coming.  How long, you might ask?  Well lets see (this might be a record!)...
Summer 2007--bought fabric and pieced quilt top.
December 2007--long arm quilted the quilt.
the quilt moved from apartment to apartment, town to town--begging for attention!
June 2011--fell back in love with the quilt, cut and attached binding.
July 2011--finish!
Yep, it has been a very long time.  
But hey, a finish is a finish!


I love the bright and cheery fabrics, which are perfect for summer!  

I was lucky enough to have access to an APQS long-arm quilting machine when I worked at my LQS.  Loved that job!  So this quilt was quilted on the long-arm, using an all over loopy flower pantograph.

The pattern is called Cheese & Crackers by Terry Atkinson (one of my all time favorite pattern designers!). As for the fabric, I honestly can't remember.  hey, it's been a while since I picked it up!  I am almost certain it's Moda--if you know, please share. :)
