The QuiltCon 2016 judges are:
Cheryl is a quilter, writer, and mom. She writes and teaches on quilting, craft, creativity, food, and family. And it all comes from her dining room empire in her crowded, colourful house. From this space she wrote her three books: Sunday Morning Quilts (co-authored with Amanda Jean Nyberg), A Month of Sundays, and You Inspire Me To Quilt (all Stash Books). Happily considered a modern quilter, Cheryl’s work spans techniques. She is in love with scraps, circles, improvisational piecing, and hand work. A proud first generation Ukrainian, she is committed to not letting the artistry of food and craft from her heritage pass by unnoticed in the modern age. Cheryl is the mother of three kidlets.
