A Little Cheddar 4 Patch

I love two color quilts! And I have been wanting to make a cheddar/off white quilt for some time. I have loved this combination since finishing this vintage top   last year. But of course I was squeezing this in among other more important things while preparing to leave on my trip. So it had to be a small quilt.

It had to be a 4 patch!  These blocks finish at 2 inches.

I pieced the top and quilted vertical lines with my walking foot.

 But that wasn’t enough. So I completed the cross hatch.

My lines are wonky. I don’t measure or mark anything when I do this and don’t mind the imperfection at all. It adds character :).

I finished the binding on the trip out to AZ.  And I got to take finish pics in sunny Arizona!

I sure wish it was sunny here. This is the current view out my back door. 

Time to plan my next trip!
Have a great day!

    Love your mini quilt! Glad you had a great time with your family.

  2. Wow! What a contrast in weather conditions! I really like your quilting lines on those little squares – you are right that doing the lines by eye doesn’t do any harm – the ‘wonkiness’ does add character and emphasises the handmade loveliness! I’m going to have a go at doing some parallel quilting lines by eye on a tablerunner…

    Two color quilts are gorgeous and your mini is a sweet little delight! The grid quilting is perfect for it. I saw a Cheddar quilt years and years ago in a magazine, it grabbed my attention!

    Love this little quilt!!

  5. I love two-color quilts too … and your little white and cheddar is fabulous! My oldest granddaughter was sitting next to me when I read your blog this morning, and her words were “wow look at all that snow”. I got to explain that this is the blog of the sweet friend who sent me the quilt that I am curled up in. ❤️❤️

  6. LOVE this wee quilt! It’s a winner! I also loved your cheddar vintage quilt! WOW!!

    I love the last picture best! Yes the snow one. Here it is supposed to be autumn….. 30 degrees+ every day so far.

    Hopefully, when you look at your little quilt, it will bring all the warm sunshine back. Isn’t this weather nuts? Our schools were off 2 1/2 days last week and 2 days this week after a whole winter of mediocre. (Well, except for that storm in November). And everything melted almost all the way last weekend. (I guess you were probably gone for that.)
