It has been awhile since we last added a blog!  Cheri Good Quilt Design has been busy with designs for Island Batik and our fabric lines with them.  We are thrilled have nine new patterns with our "Tinsel" fabric line which are fabrics designed by Kathy Engle of Island Batik for Cheri Good Quilt Design.  This is a holiday line in stunning blue and gray prints and textures. We had fun designing Christmas stockings, an Advent calender, tree skirts in two sizes and styles, fabric ornaments, three quilts using precuts, a table runner and placecards, fabric gift bags in three sizes - all featuring these beautiful fabrics.  Island Batik is also distributing our patterns and for those shop buying this line included ...

INTERNATIONAL QUILT MARKET IN HOUSTON, TEXAS • OCTOBER 24, 2015

TAKE AND TEACH CLASS • SEW CELEBRATE! TINSEL PLACE MAT

Cheri and I arrived in Houston on October 22, got settled in our hotel and stopped in the Island Batik booth to catch up and to get our kits for our upcoming class on Saturday.  Unfortunately some of our Tinsel projects didn't make it to Houston with the rest of Island Batik's stuff, but they quickly got in touch with their office in Carlsbad, CA and had the remainder of the projects overnighted.   We didn't have a finished place mat to show our class, but forturnately we had a Power Point presentation which had a visual of what they would be accomplishing.  The 15 women who signed up .........

Audrey and I dropped off 15 quilts and 5 pillows made by the Las Sendas Quilt Club to Ryan House yesterday. Brett Stempel was so pleased to receive them and mentioned that there is a special lady there who knows the children very well and will distribute them with their interests in mind. Ryan House serves Arizona families with children who have life-threatening conditions. Our group has donated over 65 quilts in the last three years. Check out their website atwww.ryanhouse.org.

My participation in the Phoenix public art project with artist Ann Morton became a reality on December 9. 2013.  Over the past year Ann solicited 300 volunteers from everywhere to each make a 40" x 70" blanket for her project.  The design of the blankets was based on her painting of desert poppies which she broke down into pixels and divided the painting into 300 rectangular sections.  Each volunteer received a packet showing the section of the painting they were assigned plus the colors of yarns or fabrics to be used to create that section.  Blankets, each consisting of 28 ten-inch squares, which could be quilted, knitted, or crocheted.  When completed the 300 blankets were installed on a football-size ...

It is not often that Cheri and I take our show on the run twice in one week, but it happen this week!  On Tuesday, we visited the Night Owls in Moon Valley, AZ, and today we did a trunk show at the Sun City Festival Quilters Bees.  Thanks to Patti Parr and Barb Kelly for contacting us about making a trip to the west of Phoenix - make that the FAR west to Sun City Festival! Today we had a great time introducing our quilt patterns to a whole new audience with a trunk show of our sample quilts.  After a brief intro to explain how we began our pattern business adventure, we talked about our experiences on the recent trip to Houston to the International Quilt Market and some of the upcoming trends relating to the quilting ......

CHERI GOOD QUILT DESIGN BLOG - NOVEMBER 13, 2013

 

 

 

Audrey and I had such a fun night visiting the Night Owls Quilt Group in North Phoenix last night. We were their guest speakers and were able to meet some new quilting friends and see some friends we remembered from the 35th Avenue Sew and Vac’s Black Friday events. It’s always special to us when we walk into a new group and see some familiar faces - although what could be better than a group of quilters!!   Barb Spitalny made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. (See picture of the 3 of us attached.) They have a yummy tradition of dinner/snacks before the meeting - and a small break in the middle to get a refill. What could be better ......

Quilted In Honor (QIH), led by Island Batik, is a fund raising initiative for Operation Homefront, one of the top military fund raising organizations, and is intended to harness the collective power of the quilting industry to give back to the ones that need it most. Individually, each organization could donate something, but if we all worked together to support this outstanding organization – what could we really achieve?

 

Last month, we learned of Island Batik's Quilted in Honor Project and inquired about participating.  Joining a number of other designers, we have just finished our Quilted in Honor quilt using our updated #110A Ribbon Star pattern.  A long favorite of ours, this pattern used ............

Audrey & Cheri at a Trunk Show in Cottonwood, AZ

Our business is a partnership formed in 2007, and yes, we are finally entering the world of bloggers!  Made up of Cheri Maniz and Audrey Good (that's me), we were friends who shared the love of quilting and found a way to "play" full time.  It will be fun to share our thoughts on our designs, new and old.  We look forward to giving you insights to what inspires our work and to find new ways to reach quilters about what we do.

Since the beginning our goal was to make patterns for beginning and experienced quilters that were interesting -  using the latest fabric precuts and using lots of visuals to support the written instructions.  We wanted ......

The Ground Cover Project will be installed in an empty lot in downtown Phoenix, Arizona on the NW corner of 1st Street and McKinley. The installation is targeted for December 6-7, 2013 - just in time for the cold winter months.  The overall blanket will measure approximately 116 ft. x 50 ft. - made up of 300 individual 40" x 70" blankets made by the generous blanket-making volunteers that are participating in this project.

Three hundred participates will each make a 40" x 70" quilt that when assembled will create a colossal image of lush desert blooms.  After installation, each blanket will be given to a homeless individual in need of cover.   Through agencies that serve the homeless, mass donations .........
