Cheryl started designing patterns for dolls in 1992 and sold them through craft fairs and local quilt shops. In 1993, Cheryl attended her first International Quilt Market & Festival in Houston, Texas. She added quilted wall hanging patterns in 1994 and started designing craft books for Darrow Production Company that same year. She has been designing prints and patterns for Benartex for years. Her "folk-art" style really adds a charm to her fabrics.
