Overview

Cheryl Fall has been quilting for more than 15 years, but she's been sewing ever since she could hold a needle without putting out her eye. She learned to sew from her mother, grandmothers, great-grandmother, and aunts — all of whom were accomplished stitchers. Her educational background includes fine arts and architectural design studies. Possessing such a wealth of stitching and design skills and always being drawn to color and texture, it's no wonder Cheryl turned to quiltmaking!
Since beginning her professional quilting career in 1986, Cheryl has designed more than 1,000 projects for publication. She's a regular contributor to many popular quilting, women's, and craft magazines, including Traditional Quilter, Country Living, Quilt World, Family Circle, Creative Quilting, Craftworks, Woman's World, Crafts, and McCall's Needlework. She also designs projects for manufacturers such as Coats & Clark, Pellon, Singer, VIP Fabrics, and P&B Textiles. Cheryl lectures, dabbles in textile design, and makes periodic television appearances. She's the author of seven quilting-related books in addition to this one, and she's in the process of designing Web pages for her quilting and embroidery designs.
