Meet the Author

Cheryl Wall has been designing quilts and publishing patterns since 2003, under the name "Country Quilts." She loves every part of the process, from the moment the spark of an idea is born, to drawing the design, choosing fabrics, and watching the quilt take shape. She especially loves watching a quilt take on a life of its own during the process, turning out quite differently from what she originally envisioned. Cheryl's favorite style of quilting is primitive, in which small imperfections add to the quilt's charm and reveal that it was made with human hands.

Cheryl has self-published more than 100 patterns, and several of her designs have been published in national and international magazines. Her first book, Country Quilts, quickly became a best seller.

When she isn't designing and making quilts, Cheryl loves to create and seek out primitive treasures for her home. Traveling, antiquing, and spending time with family and friends are her other favorite pastimes. Cheryl and her husband, Ben, live in Abbotsford, British Columbia, Canada, in a house overflowing with quilts and crafts. Their two grown children, Charissa and Geoffrey, also live nearby. Cheryl is very thankful for her family and friends and that she is able to spend her days doing what she loves.
