Get Festive With Your Cheese ball!
Wind&Willow Decorate any of the Wind&Willow
Cheese Ball Mixes with these fun
and festive arrangements
         Pepper Jack             Gobble It Up!     Oh Christmas Tree!
Pepperjack Turkey Christmas Tree
Make the pumpkin by rolling your prepared cheese ball in crushed doritos or cheeseits. Place the ball into a ziplock bag and use rubber bands to tie around the ball to form the lines for the pumpkin. Chill the cheese ball in freezer before removing the bag. Add a pepper stem to the top for a little added flare. Make this fun turkey by just preparing your favorite Wind&Willow cheese ball and surrounding it with crackers. Stick in some pretzels for the tail. You could use a sausage link or a thicker pretzel for the head if desired. Add some eyes and a beak, and your all set to start your Thanksgiving snack time. This Christmas Tree will be perfect at your Holiday junction. Get out your cheese ball and sculpt it into the tree shape you desire. Then add on some dill or parsley or whatever spices you wish to add. Further decorate it with bits of peppers, tomatoes or even candy, depending on the flavor of your cheese ball.

The Accuquilt Qubes come in (4) different block sizes. 12" Finished, 9" Finished, 8" Finished and 6" Finished Blocks. So you can also choose how big or small of a project you wish to make! Be watching for other coloring options to be posted on our Facebook Page! This quilt would look great in any fabric coloring from Jo Morton to Batiks and anything in between!
