Back to the Cheddarback Quilt


finished blocks to date

After writing my post yesterday about finishing up the string and hourglass flimsy I headed back into my sewing room to work on my next quilt. I was so tempted to start something new but I know that I really need to get a lot of in-progress quilts to the finish line.

My sewing room is overflowing with bins and stacks of various already made blocks and then the piles of fabric that have been set aside for quilt finishing. Not to mention all of the mess that comes with ongoing string piecing! Not that I am complaining...I feel very fortunate to have such an abundance but I need to get some control over it and, of course, the ultimate goal really is to make quilts! 😀

It can be a bit overwhelming so, I sat down for a minute to just gather my thoughts on what to work on and I spied the bin for the Cheddarback quilt that has sat abandoned for quite some time. Perfect - I'll work on that one.

As a side note - the Cheddarback quilt was a free block of the month from Sentimental Stitches as it was being released but now there is a fee for the patterns.

For a minute, I thought you had walked into my sewing room. The description is so perfect. Haha. Cheddarback is a great quilt. You need to finish it. You have so much done already. Enjoy! ;^)

Oh boy - right there with you on the overwhelmed on all the projects in process. Looks like you picked a good one to move forward. Love that blue block in the bottom left hand corner.
