Love that Cheddar!

You may recognize this quilt as it was on the cover of American Patchwork and Quilting several years ago and again on a calender. This is one of my favorite quilts although I wish it were a tad bigger. I use most of my quilts, but this one, because of the size, I don't'. And that's OK because I never get tired of looking at it and enjoying it.
I could have paper pieced those flying geese, but I didn't and I'm not sure why!!
I did a bit of hunting and found this in the April 1999 issue of American Patchwork & Quilting magazine. It is designed by Cindy Blackberg.


  1. Be still my heart. This is downright gorgeous.

  2. ohgosh this quilt is just beautiful!
    love those colors...
    I need to find that issue!
    I would love looking at it as well
    what size is the quilt?

  3. Wow - I love those colors together! You did a great job. What size is it that you won't use?

  4. The quilt pattern designer is a friend of mine!

  5. Gorgeous ...... simply gorgeous!

  6. Wow!! I LOVE your quilt! I would never get tired of looking at it either. The cheddar is just perfect with all the blue.

  7. Wow, it's a stunner and I love the colour combo.

  8. I remember that issue, and still have it in my collection. It has been on my to-do list for years, and at the rate my list is growing, it'll still be on there when I'm gone! Beautiful quilt!
