Guest Designer Cherry of Cherry Blossom Quilts

Share the love!

Today please welcome Guest Designer Cherry of Cherry Blossom Quilts. You may recognize Cherry fabric designs with Benartex- she has quite a few of them! They are always fresh and fun and full of a little surprise and whimsy to them.

You’ll find that her patterns are perfect for beginners. She even has embroidery patterns as well!

I’m thinking that you’ll enjoy her pattern and getting to know here as I have!

Here’s a bit more about Cherry:

I am a passionate designer that loves fabric, color, spending lots of time at my sewing machine, and I hope my work will inspire you to create something beautiful today!

*you’ll find a coupon code for her shop at the bottom of the post!

The Night Sky Mystery Quilt Block

Trailing Star is a fun and easy to piece block and you can find the cutting instructions to make just one block on the last page of the pattern I’m sharing with the group, just follow the runner’s instructions to make a block for the BOM… I can’t wait to see everyone’s version of Trailing Star!

How did you get your start in sewing?

My sweet mom taught me to sew at age 4 and I’ve been in love with all things sewing and fabric ever since. I’ve sewn garments and home decor items, I even made a tent once, but nothing has been as satisfying as quilting! I took my first class in 2004 and am just as passionate today as I was then.

What inspires you?

I’m inspired by all things, especially nature and color, bright, vibrant color.

Do you have a favorite notion?

Oh goodness, so many great tools! I absolutely love my Silhouette Cameo electronic cutter, it is the perfect tool to cut all my applique shapes.

What’s coming up for you that we can check out~

My latest fabric collection, Hearty, will be arriving in stores early March. It’s a holiday collection that features a sweet snowman pillow panel, ornaments, squiggly lines, tossed snowmen, snowflakes, dots… in a fun palette of aqua, red, green, white and grey perfect for a houseful of wintry projects

Quirky or fun fact about yourself?

I am a hooker… a rug hooker of course! I love wool and enjoy hooking rugs in the evenings after a long day in my studio.
And, Cherry has so generously offered a giveaway for IAQ Members! (members only)
