The designs are created for all areas to be quilted, including sashings with connecting blocks, borders with corners, and edge-to-edge pantograph.

Meet the Author
With a love of hand needlework of all types from early childhood, Cheryl Barnes discovered machine quilting and purchased a longarm machine in 1994. She began her own quilting business, Golden Threads, at that time. After quilting for several years, Cheryl felt limited by the lack of new patterns available to longarm quilters. The pursuit of building a library of quilting designs took Cheryls company from quilting to publishing quilting designs.
