Cheddar Madness Giveaway


As promised in my last post, it is time for my "Cheddar Madness" giveaway.  First, a little background... Many months ago I embarked on a search for a good solid cheddar fabric.  I found the Moda Bella cheddar was a good choice for a very bold but not too screeching orange-y yellow.  I bought a whole bolt at a very good price from Hancocks-Paducah and started making cheddar quilts.  I used it in was my double nine-patch blocks here.  Then, I got a call from one of my local shops telling me "the fabric I ordered" had come in.  Uhhh, that was nearly six months ago and you never actually told me you could get it.  But, I felt bad since they had really gone above and beyond in their search for the fabric.  I had to take it off their hands.  So, you can see in the photo above that I have a whole lot of solid cheddar fabric and you can help take it off my hands while sharing some little quilts with the rest of us and getting a chance to win the little quilt below.


I would like to have another online quilt show like the red and white one I did back in March 2011.  This time it is Little and/or Doll Quilts.  To enter, you need to do a post on your blog about a little quilt you've made or own and link it to the online display below.  Don't have a blog?  Email me the photo and I will post it for you.  Then, leave me a quick comment and I will send you a half yard of solid cheddar fabric.  Make sure you aren't a "no-reply" commenter so I can contact you for your mailing address.  I will enter everyone who posts a link into the giveaway for the little red and brown nine patch quilt above.  I have an extra 15 yards of cheddar so the first 30 unique linkers (is that a word?) will get a half yard of fabric.  You are welcome to link to more than one little quilt post (that will give you another entry into the little quilt giveaway) but I can only send you a single half yard cut -- I want to spread the cheddar love around.

Submissions will close on November 19 and the quilt winner will be picked on the 20th..Adding your link is simple, just click on the link button below and follow the instructions.  On the part that asks for a name you can use just your first name or the name of your quilt if you want.  I will get us started with a link to one of my small quilts...

I love cheddar fabric, but sometimes it is indeed very hard to find. Love the idea of an online quiltshow. Marina.

First, thanks for this give away, and ....I haven't got anything with that cheddar color!!, so it would be a nice opportunity to try something new.
I would be more than happy to get you quilt!,

Thanks, Taryn, for hosting this quilt show -- it's so fun to see all the little quilts and discover new (to me) quilters.

I would love to use your cheddar fabric in doll quilt.

What a fun giveaway! I've only completed a couple little quilts in all of my quilting endeavors, but I'm starting to understand the charm of it! Great idea for the link up.:)

Sherrill said...

I LOVE cheddar! Even though I'm not really into quilting right now (as I said on my blog), I hope someday it will have meaning to me again.

Angie said...

Ooooh oh I would LOVE some Cheddar fabric. This little quilt is finished and it was so much fun to make that I'm thinking I will make another one SOON. :)

Love your little quilt! Such a fun thing to have a chance to win. I am all about little quilts lately.
And I am amazed at the generosity in sharing your bounty of cheddar. I can never find it in the shops near me. I'm excited to have some to play with. Thank you!

Robin said...

I don't blame you for feeling a little obligated to take the extra fabric. I hope they gave you a good deal. Thanks for letting me be part of this fun give-away.

Doniene said...

How absolutely wonderful!!! I'm doing a SAL in all solids and this will be a wonderful addition!! Such a grand gesture!!

Your little nine patch is adorable!!! Stars are my favorite - but nine patches are a very, very close second!!

Blessings

taylorsoutback said...

What fun! Yes - cheddar is extremely difficult to locate and I live in Wisconsin:o) You would think that color would be everywhere...well we do have our Green Bay Packers in green and a version of cheddar...

Will be visiting all those other fabulous little quilts!

Louise said...

Aunt 'Reen said...

Thanks for hostessing such a wonderful online quilt show! Cheddar is such a difficult color to find - what a generous give-away!

Diane said...

Thanks for the opportunity to share a few of my little quilts. I chose three with an Autumn theme. My entries are too late for the cheddar giveaway, but I'd prefer a chance to win your lovely little quilt anyway. What a great quilt show this will be!

Lady Locust said...

You are so very kind, but I have to say, I am glad I'm not the only one who does things like that (get things I didn't know I ordered:) Have a beautiful day.

Just curious why my links, #51-53, have red X's next to them. Did I submit them correctly? Perhaps they are awaiting preapproval.

Donna K. from N. Texas said...

So love your little quilt shows. I've added one of my favorite little quilts to the show link list. (try to say that three times real fast)!

Diane said...

The red "X" has to do with deleting the entry, which I then accidentally did. Oops.

Linda said...

HI! I'M LOVING VIEWING ALL THESE LITTLE QUILTS! DON'T YOU LOVE THE SCRAPPY ONES? AND THE OLD-FASHIONED ONES TOO! YOUR LITTLE RED/WHITE IS SO ATTRACTIVE! THANKS FOR SHARING!

I saw this mentioned on another blog and came to see all the little quilts. I did enter one of mine. Fun!

beebee said...

what is the maximum size? I have a baby quilt I would like to maybe enter.

libbyquilter said...

i've come over from Cheryl's 'So Many Quilts, So Little Time' and am pleased to have discovered you as well as the little show. i'm sure i have a post that i can link into with a little quilt to show . . . and i can hardly wait to start checking out all of the entries.

your little give-away quilt is sweet and clearly you are quite generous as the cheddar give-away is an awesome thing to do.
i'll have to note down the color and line and see if i can find some for my own stash.
THANK YOU for this great show and multi give-away post.

:-)

Kimme said...

What a fun idea Taryn! Your first little quilt inspired me to start cutting tiny 1in x 7/8in scraps to make really small quilts. I just hate throwing any fabric away lol. Cheddar is such a great colour to use in quilts, it just makes them sing.

Kimme said...

Cutting 11/4in by 7/8 it should read above. Sorry.

Wendy said...

Love your little quilt and I'm looking for some cheddar love :-)

Thanks for hosting this show. Fun to see all these minis. They sure do stitch up fast by machine.

Kim said...

Nice doll quilt show :0).

Stitched With Prayer said...

Thanks so much for this fun giveaway! I have been sitting here looking at all the wonderful 'little quilts'...lots of eye candy and also lots of fun ideas for future reference. Hugs...

cyndiofthevortex said...

I've been looking for the exact right fabric to use to sash a large sort-of African themed quilt. Cheddar might not sound like the right color but it is! I've auditioned gray and black and beigh and nothing brought out the colors and patterns of the fabrics. I am now sold on cheddar! I've also LOVED looking through the quilts on your blog.

Cheryl's Teapots2Quilting said...

I've been wanting to try something with cheddar, but, I've not seen any in the stores. Thanks for the chance.

PatchworkRose said...

I just went through and photographed the rest of the other doll quilts I had. Did not realise that they had not had their moment of fame :-)
Love the parade
Cheers
Lynne
