Wonderful Handwork ~

I am so excited to share this with you !
We are now carrying the beautiful & folksy quilt and appliqué patterns 
...from the talented designer Cheri Payne ~

I have admired her work for years ~ so original and true to herself...

Yesterday I received a box full of her patterns and shop models!!!

one of her newest patterns ~

 the workman(woman)ship in her models is stunning 
...her color choices are perfect for primitive-making.

echoing threads

 Cheri has a way with her motifs, that  make you feel like they are old friends ~
familiar crows, happy stars & saw-toothed borders...

Halloween or Not

Simple designs, yet complex enough to hold our attention
and make us lean in a little closer, like small basket with even smaller gingerbread boys...

... Her designs speak to me, for sure!
can you guess which ones are my favorites??

added details, like old pearl & cloth-covered buttons ~
multiple bindings and sashing...
make for perfect folk art.

Cheri's handwork is reminiscent of an earlier time 
...when we used up our scraps of this-and-that.

wools, cotton, homespun & flannel come together in Cheri's designs...

I hope you get a chance to stop in & see her models in person on Saturday for our Open House ~
and perhaps pick up one or two of her delightful patterns :)
and I couldn't resist sharing this with you...
I went downstairs for tea this morning, 
and on the counter was a grocery list that my hubby had added to....

I guess I'll be shopping at the puppy store today?

Have a wonderful day my Friends!!
* Blessed be *

How cute! A new beagle for Christmas, that's his subconscious telling you what he really wants for

kathiquilts said...

Mary A said...

susiedele said...

So funny! Is he gonna put some jam on those puppies? Better add it to the list.
I love Cheri's designs. I'm working on one right now.

Lee said...

I have done some of cheri's designs….they are uncomplicated and work up quick! My problem lies in choosing the fabric !
I was thinking the same thing as another commenter….her patterns look completely different on your site…alive and more colorful. Lee
