Cracker Snackers

My daughter picked out this pattern (Cracker Snackers) from Quilt Soup Pattern Co. when we were on vacation during the summer of 2007. She also picked out all of the fabrics. I was hoping to convince her to sew it up herself, but she was always "too busy" and when home this summer said all she wanted for Christmas was this quilt DONE. So, I decided to do it for her for Christmas and have my friend, Cathy, quilt it (click on picture to see quilting). I think Kali reminded me every week (sometimes daily) that this quilt was all she wanted for Christmas and I had x-number of days to complete it. I tried to tell her that we could work on it when she was home for the holidays, etc. (knowing it was already done). She was very surprised when she opened the box containing the quilt -- she really thought I hadn't done it. And, yes, she did get some other things for Christmas too! Sadly, both daughter and quilt are back to college in a few days.
