A New Quilt
I had seen a photo of this quilt in a Quilt Sampler Shop Hop magazine where they were featuring a Canadian shop called Quilt Junction. They had named this quilt 'Better with Cheddar' and I was immediately attracted to it and decided that it would be one of the projects that came on retreat with me. The magazine came to me as a hand-me-down and wouldn't you know it....one of the most crucial pages was missing. Happily, I was able to figure out the fabric quantities and strip sizes, etc, that I needed to make the blocks. I cut most of the strips, squares and triangles before I left so I didn't have to do a lot of cutting while on retreat and I spent lots of time just pushing fabric through the machine. So relaxing!
You would think that with all of that sewing I would have stacks of finished blocks but I focused my sewing on making lots of assembly line sub-units instead of focusing on finishing each individual block. I just need to start putting the pieces together to build some more blocks!
