Better with Cheddar

I don't know if that is true or not, better with cheddar, but I sure have been eating it up lately! (purposeful pun) I just finished this little cutie that I am calling Button Box Stars. 

 I just ordered pattern covers, so it will be a couple weeks before it is available. I will post it when it is on my website. Meanwhile, I have been getting lots of bounce back from Quilt Hollow and comments on the beautiful job Mary has done quilting my big cheddar quilt! Be sure to see the nice things she says about me too. (Aw shucks) My patterns are not widely available because I am just a little runt  on the totem pole of designers, but most shops are willing to order if someone wants to buy something, so please ask at your local shop and have them call me. Otherwise, purchasing on my website is as easy as can be with Paypal. If you haven't used Paypal before, don't let it scare you, it's easy!

This is the quilt that Mary just quilted for me. She sent me a photo, so I haven't seen it in person yet. But her quilting is amazing. Be sure and see close-ups on her blog. And seriously consider asking her to quilt your next special quilt. You will be as thrilled as I am!

So what do you think, is it better with cheddar?

Cheddar is beeyootiful! the cheddar block quilting reminds me of the fancy little butter pat mold design from long ago.

I'm waiting for the button box pattern!

Are you anxious to get the box from Mary with your newest cheddar quilt all quilted? It's a beauty.
You may be low on the totem pole but I think you are fast on your way up.

Both of your cheddar quilts are wonderful! The quilting Mary did for you is fabulous! What a great feather wreath design. The little friendship stars just sparkle in your button quilt.

Cheddar (both edible and in fabric) makes life better for me! Love both the quilts!

Just left Mary's blog and I posted my favorite patterns. I must add Saddle Tramp and More Cheddar (I'm not sure that's the official name) to my list. Your choice of fabrics with simple blocks puts the WOW back in traditional quilts. Thanks!!

I forgot to add that I read your blog constantly. My daughter and family live in Eliz. City so I feel that you are neighbors (LOL). Keep up the good work and thanks for all the inspiration!!

Yes! Both quilts are definitely BETTER with Cheddar! Lucky for you and other bloggers that I see use it that you can find it for sale in the quilt shops.

Either my LQS owners don't buy it at market or other cheddar fans beat me to it at the store b/c I never find it on the shelves.

Happy Weekend & Love from Texas! ~bonnie
