Designer Spotlight – Cheri Strole
“What a wonderful opportunity to help others doing what we love to do most. Every year I use my fabrics and make quilts with matching pajamas for our local police department, Orangewood Children's Foundation and sometimes Pendleton Air Base for children of Marines. My hope is they will wrap a child with warmth and love when they need it most. I really like the idea of making pillowcases. They are so quick and easy to do, you can't make just one!”
Cheri used Pillowcase Pattern #15 – Pillowcase with piping for her pillowcase using fabrics from her Rainforest Buzz collection for Northcott Fabrics.
