Today is another cheddar stars quilt made for the Riley Blake Challenge charity fundraiser with the 2010 Home Machine Quilting Show. It is also inspired by the same antique cheddar star quilt that inspired my cheddar repro shared on day 9. This version is modern and larger scale with 5 inch stars instead of 3 inches. It is a quick and fun pattern and work in all types of fabrics. The pattern is available in my etsy shop.
The Riley Blake fabric was pretty wild with large polka dots, stripes, paisleys and pink, orange, red, green, etc. One day the fabric was sitting next to some solid cheddar fabric for another project and VOILA!!
Not sure why or how but the cheddar actually calmed down the busy fabrics. It still looks a bit wild but wait until you see it with my inspiration- an antique quilt in my collection. Here is a bit of the challenge quilt and the inspiration quilt together: I love how they are so different and similar at the same time.
