What do you get when you cross..................................

A blank wall with one too many snow days?
 Something bright? Something fun?
I can't stand another moment of this dull, dreary winter. I love being home but I need something cheery to perk me up! Let's see what I can find in my stash.
I bought two panels from Loralie Designs a year or so ago, just because I liked them. I had no idea what to do with them, I just wanted them. I decided to go with Chefs because the eventual quilt was going to hang next to my kitchen.
I poured over books and images trying to find just the right pattern. Nothing seemed quite right.
Oh boy, this was getting a little intimidating.
I'm using a panel and now I need to come up with my own pattern??????
I started with my favorite image on the panel. This will be the center and I will work my way out. One of these characters reminds me of me, love to cook and all attitude!
Nine blocks later, I'm so excited with this that I stayed up most of the night playing. Sashing, no sashing, dark, light? Maybe if I put it up on my design wall? 
Ta Da! By the time the roads cleared and I had to go back to work on Tuesday, I had a new wall hanging that makes me giggle every time I look at it.
