Presentation: Just One Charm Pack by Cheryl Brickey

Cheryl shared many "behind the scenes" glimpses into the making of her book...pattern design, fabric choices, and quilting choices. She also shared fun and fascinating facts about how the book came together, for example, how her quilts were photographed. The publisher shot the quilts in an AirBnB and allowed Cheryl to choose the photos for the book. 

Many guild members contributed to Just One Charm Pack by making one of the quilts or quilting one. Cheryl passed along her appreciation to these members: Sandy Henzel, Dana Blasi, Faye Jones, Carol Alperin, Cindy Kaiser, Michele Blake, Sarah Snider, Cindy Lammon, Cindy Hocker Lange, Garen Sherwood, Delia Dorn, Ruth Freyer, Travis Steward, and Darleen Sanford. Guild members will receive an email with a link to a GuildDeal special on her book and patterns.
