A QUILT ALONG

This is my design wall with the Cheddar Cheese and Crackers doll quilt that I am making (I'm going to make 2 of them - for some crazy reason). This little quilt it taking a while. I have been digging (literally) through my stash looking for reproduction browns, blues and pinks. I also bought some FQs and a bag of scraps from a scrap bin to get more variety.
Lori at Humble Quilts started this quilt along and I didn't get going on it until Tuesday because we were in Florida! It was kind of confusing at first, but I'm getting the hang of it. Lots of little pieces!!!
I think I'll really like it when I get it finished.

Love your cheddar quilt! It is fun to do once you get the hang of it! Your tumbler quilt turned out darling also! That one has been on my "to do" list for quite a while!

Well of course you are going to like it - its a fantastic looking quilt in progress now. So many good ideas floating around on the internet and so little time to tackle them! Your grandmothers scissors are a treasure for sure. You must feel a sense of warmth just putting your fingers through the holes, knowing that hers were there too.

It's a really pretty quilt. Love the fabrics you selected. I made one without paying attention to the colorways, (it's not finished yet) and am thinking I should make one the right way as well.
