Finished my Cheddar Nine-Patch Quilt

I started this quilt last fall while I was making the quilts I was giving my family for Christmas.  I set this one aside in order to get the others done in time.  I finally quilted it and finished the binding just today.  I call it Cheddar Nine-Patch.  Bonnie K. Hunter showed her quilt on her blog some time ago.  She made it for a new nephew, I think.  She offers the pattern for sale on her blog,  This was a lot of fun to make and used up a lot of 2 1/2" strips and squares.  I love scrappy quilts.    I was short a little of the cheddar fabric for the backing so I used half-square triangles made from cutting off the corners of the blocks.  The picture of the backing is before sandwiching and quilting.  The little feet in the pink fleece socks are mine
