I finished my quilt and I love it so much! My general plan is to make quilts for my family members but I don't think I will be able to part with this one....
I started Blue Cheese back in September 2016 while I was on retreat at Killbear Provincial Park - my first retreat ever. It was so much fun that I went back again this year but I digress. :))
The pattern for this quilt came from a hand-me-down Quilt Sampler Shop Hop magazine that featured this quilt (called Better with Cheddar) from Quilt Junction in Waterford, Ontario. After I decided to make the quilt I realized that some of the essential pages were missing. Not to worry though because I was still able to figure out what sizes to cut my fabric, and if I recall correctly, I made my quilt a bit longer than the pattern specified.
I had been holding onto this particular cheddar fabric just waiting for the right quilt pattern to come along. The quilt design didn't require a lot of cheddar fabric but it certainly had enough to give the finished quilt some yummy highlights. Happily I still have quite a bit of the cheddar left for more quilts. :)
My quilt finished at approx. 74" x 84" and I used Tuscany 80/20 cotton/wool for the batting - love it!! I quilted it using a continuous Baptist Fan pantograph by Hermione Agee. I used Omni thread on top with a magna glide bobbin. I gave it a very scrappy binding using some of the blue fabric leftover from the quilt top.
