These familiar golden yellow-orange tones are a longtime Reproduction favorite, and Cheddar in its many variations is enjoying a resurgence this season! It’s a rich, warm, inviting color and like the food it’s named after, the category ranges from muted golds to deeper orange tones. In Repro quilts, cheddar generally used as a highlight against darker blues, greens, reds, plums and browns.
Like the quilters long before them, modern quilters have also embraced the color as a special accent, giving life to the colors around it in simply pieced designs. We love Pam Buda’s new take on the color, pairing it with taupe-grey neutrals for a look that bridges tradition and trend in ANTIQUE COTTON CALICOS: Cheddar and Friends!
Beautiful collection. Would be wonderful with some purple for an additional color.
I love cheddars–I’ll be adding some of these to my stash for sure! The greys are great too–hard to find in reproductions.
These new cheddars are irresistible! I can’t wait until they arrive at my local quilt shop.
They’re coming to quilt shops in March!!
