At Home With Country Quilts

Earlier this year I quilted several quilts for Cheryl Wall's newest book to be released next June. This was a peek I shared of one of her quilts earlier this year. Cheryl sent me the sweetest email the other day that I meant to tell you about! Her latest book will be called, "At Home with Country Quilts" and you can see more of the Martingale & Company photo shoot at Cheryl's blog. Please do visit Cheryl's blog and see the props that were used for the book. Here is Cheryl's email to me:

Hi Mary,
Just wanted to let you know that this week I was at the photo shoot at Martingale for our book (now titled, “At Home with Country Quilts”) due out next June. It’s going to look amazing! I’ve posted pictures on my blog. The photographer, Brent, who’s taken pictures for all of Martingale’s books for the past 20 years told me he’s seen pretty much every kind of quilting out there and he was so amazed and impressed with the quality of workmanship in ours! So, thank you, thank you! I can’t wait for the book!

Cheryl

Isn't it nice to be recognized as such an accomplished quilter? I have only observed the quilting from the photos on your blog, so I can only imagine how fantastic your quilting must be in person! You do deserve such a compliment!
