Show 2011 - Building with Details, Interest, and Finishes

Featuring: Teri Cherne

Posts On: May 21, 2017


Award-winning quilt artist Teri Cherne is a quilter with sheer determination. As an artist, she didn’t let a little thing like two bouts of cancer keep her from creating. Known for her incredibly detailed and precise work, Teri shares how she drafts an entire quilt before needle ever hits thread. But that’s not all, she loves adding interesting details in her binding that she calls, "The frame for your picture." You won't believe the results.
Then Alex shares a contemporary rendition of an antique Shoo-Fly quilt as a way to honor and treasure those who stitched before.

Hands down one of the best shows I've seen. It was a privilege to hear Teri share herself with us. Truly a gifted woman with a great spirit!

This was such an inspirational show and Teri's quilting is awesome. I especially loved her Chasing Rainbows quilt and it must have been serendipitous as her quilt was hanging in the Genesee Valley Quilt Show in Rochester, NY this weekend. Seeing it up close was a special moment for me.

I was going to say "That was a feast of ideas and information" but actually it was a banquet!
Truly inspiring. Thank you.

I enjoyed seeing the process of your quilts coming together. Congratulations on your 1st place win at UQSM this year. I was lucky enough to see "When My Spirit is Set Free" in person! It is beyond beautiful!

Teri is amazing! Her story, her quilting all together a person who knows her own heart and style. Thank you, Teri, for coming to TQS! I can't wait to see what you do the next time you are on the show. I'm sure it will be spectacular.

It is great to hear about another sister having both a shop and studio!!! My studio is built with cabinets I built and designed.

Thanks for explaining how you made the plexi-glass rulers.

THEN to hear that we share the cancer story as well. I am encouraged.

Please come back on the show.

Teri just took my breath away with her strength, passion and talent. How can anyone who sees this show (particularly the after show) have any excuse to not pursue their own dream! What an inspiration!
