One of the quilts caught my eye, which was a feathered Lemoyne star pattern. It featured a little touch of cheddar in the quilt. Subtle from far away, but it packed a punch up close:

Soon after the quilt event, I took a class with the talented Anita Grossman Solomon at the City Quilter. She wrote a great book (called Rotary Cutting Revolution) that featured an easy pineapple block. You can read my initial post about the class HERE.
I put away the projects for a few months, but I recently decided to finish it. I didn't have the patience to create a bed-sized quilt, so I opted to make a wallhanging (perfect for our new house!). I was so inspired by the quilt at the Red and White exhibit that I decided to make the quilt a little whimsical....
Here is the finished quilt, which I call "Better With Cheddar," because everything is better with a little cheddar (fabric or cheese) added to it!

I used Kona cotton in Snow, Chinese Red and School Bus. I opted to free-motion quilt the white parts only with a dense stippling. It was surprisingly easy to create, and I love the off-center pop of color! It also reinforced how much I like working with solid colors...an all-solid quilt is now high on my list of to-do projects.
