This quilt is from around the time that cheddar came into my life. My friend Betsy in Texas introduced me to cheddar, then I had to have it in my fabric lines!
Cheddar is a beautiful neutral that makes a quilt sing. Also Cheddar is gorgeous in the Fall – my favorite time of year. My birthday is in October, I’ve always loved Fall – I’ve been told that is the link.
I named the quilt ‘Chocolate and Cheddar’, it is perfect for my favorite time of year – see I do make them for me and share them with you. 🙂
The corn is carved by a man in Lincoln, Nebraska – I bought it in an antique shop around 20 years ago – I think it is fun to use in a display in the Fall – no messy real corn cobs. Redware candle holder from a potter in Pennsylvania, pumpkin from a craft store, the trencher bowl from an antique shop. All sitting atop a blanket chest – a newly built piece and beautiful grain painted by an artist in Indiana.
Hope this history isn’t boring for you! Just sharing my stuff.
