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"
