Play Day with Cheddar


I did quite a bit of work on “Feathered Cheddar” yesterday, all on the inside border. I cut out circles to size, slapped a piece of non-fusible interfacing on the front, sewed around the circle, cut a hole in the fusing to turn them right-side out, ironed and sliced in half.  This was easy!


Then I placed the scallops around the edge to make sure I liked it.  I did, and now have two sides appliquéd.


I toyed with the idea of putting three solid cheddar circles in each scallop, but I’m not sure if I like that idea, and hubby said he didn’t.   What do you think?





I spread the quilt on the floor to take a picture…

Stormie decided it needed inspected from the back.



Here’s as far as I got… this picture was taken before all of the appliqué work was done on the border. 

DSC03977There’s a lot of blank cheddar area here…

Good for either:

1)  Wide feather quilting around the quilt

2)  or a blue appliquéd feather around the quilt.

I need some feedback from my quilt friends. 

What do you think?


  1. Here is my two cents... I don't think I like the circle in the scallops. This quilt says to me, "less is more". Therefore, I think some really nice feather quilting in the larger areas would be great! Hope this helps.

  2. LOVE the scalloped border! I don't like the circles either - but I think an appliqued feather would look awesome, and quilted feathers equally awesome. I think it depends on how much more applique you want to do!
