I love the Shoo Fly Pie pattern, and I think I might have the perfect fabrics ready to go!

These designs are just breathtaking, I'm totally in awe ! I'm just beginning my quilting journey, doing very simple designs at the moment, but aspire to create something as beautiful as any of these amazing quilts.

These are lovely and I can just imagine them in your shop. I just know it will be a perfect setting. I especially liked the "Twilight Stars" and "Scrappy Squares" quilts. Looks like I'm gonna have to hop on my Harley and head down for an up close and personal look at all of them. Thank you for sharing and thank you to Cheryl Wall for the inspiration. This book is going on my "must have it" list!!! Hugs and Blessings Liz Carter

It's too hard to pick a favorite, I love them all. But Night Blooms would be the first one I'd start.

Love the classic scrapiness of them. Gave me some ideas for 2 pkgs of holiday turnover precuts I recently purchased. Stars are one of my favorite motifs and I really liked the Twilight Stars. You can just autograph that book right over to me!

Such a great inspiration. I really like country quilts, and her quilts look fabulous. They're all lovely quilts. It's hard to decide which one is my favorite, between Twilight Stars and Star Gazing, perhaps both! :) <3 Thanks for this giveaway.

Jubama said...

que de beaux quilts !!!

CC said...

Wow! I love all of the quilts displayed. My first reaction to Scrappy Squares is country, but the center is modern to me. So, I guess I'd say county-urban. Looks like a great book!

Gay said...

I love all of the patterns, but the Broken Stars Pattern is my favorite. The country look is so homely and I love the designs and colors chosen for them. Cheryl has done a great job with this book and I would love to have a copy so that I can start on them ASAP.

Beth McConnell said...
