12-days-of-christmas

 

To celebrate the countdown of Christmas, today I’m kicking off the first of 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways.  Each day I’ll showcase a different sponsor and unwrap (reveal) their gift to one lucky winner.  To enter to win, you need to claim at least one option in the Rafflecopter form, but for those that like to increase their odds, there are a variety of options and you can claim as many as you wish.

I’m absolutely thrilled to have Cherry Guidry of Cherry Blossoms Quilting Studio as our sponsor today.

I first met Cherry, many years ago, when she shared a stunning design she created in a Christmas Quilt Show, which I hosted.  To my delight she turned this design into a pattern called Feather Christmas.  This sweet wallhanging is easy and fast to make, especially if you have AccuQuilt dies, or an electronic cutter.  But templates are also included in the easy to follow pattern, for cutting the shapes manually and using raw-edge aplique to secure.

Cherry has a great eye for color and design and she has used her creative gift to design several fabric lines for Benartex:  Soul Blossom, Kitchen Love, Sunday Ride,  Frosty Forest and her newest collection, Mulberry Lane,

Cherry designed a current holiday line of fabric with Benartex, called Frosty Forest, which is a fun whimsical collection of beautiful fabrics that can still be found in many quilt stores and even on Amazon.

At Fall Market, Cherry released a new line of fabric with Contempo, by Benartex  called Mulberry Lane.  She’ll be releasing new  patterns and a coordinating embroidery collection with OESD early next year that will compliment this new fabric line.

PATTERN LINE: After designing her first pattern, Feathered Christmas, Cherry has continued to release many new patterns every year.   Plus, for many of her designs that use raw edge applique’ techniques, that include templates in the pattern, many also have SVG files for use on electronic cutters.  Here are a few of her designs:


MACHINE EMBROIDERY DESIGN COLLECTIONS – Cherry has several beautiful embroidery collections with OESD.

And, recently Cherry partnered with Sarah Vedeler to create machine embroidery and pattern bundles for Feathered Christmas and Feather Fancy, which include SVG files for those with electronic cutters.

BOOK:  Cherry is also the author of a book “Celebrate The Seasons“, which was published by C&T Publishing.  There are four quilt patterns in this book, one for each season.  Plus, for those that have electronic cutters there are also optional SVG files.

I hope you can see why I’m so thrilled to have Cherry Guidry of Cherry Blossoms Quilting Studio as a sponsor for the 12 Days of Christmas giveaways.  She is so talented and I love her whimsical designs and use of color.  And, can you tell how she loves Christmas?  She certainly makes it easy to get into the holiday spirit and want to make handmade items to decorate your home, as well as for gifts.
