A modern cheater cloth pattern

This is a print I bought a few years ago at Hobby Lobby. It's a surprisingly realistic take on an antique crazy quilt, made by Daisy Kingdom and called, "Allover Crazy Patch." I just learned it also came in a shades-of-blue version that is really beautiful too. You can see pics of it at Charlene's blog.

Part of what feels so realistic about this print is the colors, which have that slightly aged tone to them, and the printed-on embroidery, which is highlighted with metallic gold.

Hey QQ
I've got yards of that one. I was going to make overalls out of it. We could make matching outfits for Craft Fairs, it would just be beautiful
