What would you call me...an enabler? An influencer? Or your personal shopper, LOL! All I know is that nothing warms my heart more than someone asking me what was that quilt in the video because they have got to make it!!! As a quilter I want...no need, is to be able to walk into a brick and mortar shop and feel the fabric and ogle at the samples. I want to see close up the incredible talent that goes into piecing and quilting the layers.
A handful of years ago I made a video of The Christmas Goose in Las Vegas, Nevada. I totally admit this shop is on my top 10 "Want to revisit list". After the video was posted, I was contacted by a friend who saw a quilt that she had to make! The quilt is called Deck the Halls by Cheri Leffler. Cheri creates whimsical needle turn appliqué quilts and is a much sought after designer and teacher.
The Deck the Halls quilt is so adorable with all the Christmas mice up to their holiday celebrating. But, what really made my day was finding out and seeing the finished quilt by my friend. It took her many months of piecing and appliqué, but she now has an adorable Deck the Halls quilt.
I hope to find many more things for her and you to stitch! 2020 is going to be a year filled with adventure and quilting!
Stay tuned and travel along with us on Quilt Roadies.
