Cheddar and blue are not just names for cheese! These cheddars and blues compose one of my all time favorite reproduction fabric quilts–well it’s really a wall hanging.
The contrast of colors and fabrics is yummy! Sorry, I just can’t get past the food analogy!
Here’s a bird’s eye view. My quilter, Ms. JM, did a lovely quilting job, don’t you think? Oops, how did my feet get in the picture?!
I used Thangles to make my tiny half square triangles –they made piecing so much easier!
Right now this quilt is hanging in my sewing room. It makes things warm and cozy for winter sewing.
What’s hanging on the wall in your sewing space?

Cheddar and Blue is so beautiful! Is there a pattern for it?
Hi Joy! Yes, This was a pattern included in a kit from Red Rooster Quilts in Dublin, Ohio. The name of the pattern is “Cheddar Blues” and was the 2010 QSI Quilt Shop Hop January Project.
This looks fabulous. Also one of my favourite colour combos. Great result!
Thangles! I got a couple old packages of Thangles that I have never used!!! I think I saw a demo many years ago! Okay I am going to use them…someday! I like your quilt design and got a kick out of the shoes in the photo (I see you do the “get on a chair and photo the quilt on the floor thing” too) 🙂
Hah! I’m so short I need to stand on something! Good luck with the Thangles…they eliminate all that 7/8 inch math stuff that gives me a headache!
Thanks, Meg! It was one of those fun but challenging projects due to all the small pieces.
Nice colors! Let’s work on getting you a different machine…buy a powerball ticket!
