BOM featuring the TEMECULA TREASURES Collection
by Sheryl Johnson of Temecula Quilt Co.
We're pleased to introduce TEMECULA TREASURES, the debut fabric collection by Sheryl Johnson for Marcus. Sheryl's inspiration for the line began with a vintage nine-patch from her personal collection that included "the most perfect little light print." This was one of the first prints in the collection. From there it grew to include more little prints from dozens of vintage blocks she collected over the years. Sheryl wanted to create a line of fabric that would be perfect to recreate Temecula Album Quilt, a sampler quilt designed with the help of her quilting friend, Linda Sawrey.
The Temecula Album Quilt is a beautiful sampler that mimics those of Ohio's Miami Valley in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The mismatched block sizes, unique appliqué and wonderful folk-art appearance of these quiltmakers provide the perfect inspiration for this Block of the Month. The quilt measures approx. 63" x 70"
About Sheryl --
Quilting has been a part of Sheryl Johnson's life since she was a child, and after raising her three daughters, she opened Temecula Quilt Co. in 2007. The bright, light-filled shop specializes in her favorite reproduction fabrics, filled with eye-catching displays and traditional quilts with a fresh, vintage look. Scrappy quilts made with numerous small pieces line the walls and fill an antique iron bed that greets customers as they walk in the door. Tucked here and there in baskets, boxes and baskets are the darling little quilts that have become her specialty. In 2009, Temecula Quilt co was honored to be chosen as one of the Top 10 Shops by Better Homes and Gardens Quilt Sampler magazine.
Sheryl's popular blog gives customers a feel for the shop even if they are unable to visit. The beautiful photographs that fill the blog are taken at her home in Temecula, California, which she shares with her husband, Tim. Sew-alongs featured on the blog connect quilters from all over the world with one common thread, their love of little pieces and small quilts.
Sheryl has filled her website with patterns exclusive to Temecula Quilt Co. She loves to recreate vintage quilts using only an image and a pile of scraps. Finding just the right fabric to make a truly unique quilt is all part of the fun. The website also features custom-cut bundles, perfect for making quilts in Temecula's signature style. Her goal is to keep things simple when she's quilting, and she offers all her favorite sewing necessities and a few treats for sale on her website as well. The original Temecula Quilt Co Ruler Boxes, made by Sheryl's husband, have become on of the website's most popular items. Look for her new book, Quirky Little Quilts (Martingale, August 2018).
