Cheryl Almgren Taylor learned to sew at the age of 13 but didn't begin quilting until 2000. Soon after creating her first quilt, she began designing her own patterns. Her first pattern series, Storybook Snugglers, debuted in 2007 and was followed by a book of Christmas quilts, Deck the Halls, in 2009, all published by Martingale & Company. Her beautiful work has also appeared in publications such as Quick Quilts and McCall's Quilting.
Cheryl's favorite quilting technique is fusible-web applique with a machine blanket-stitched finish. She loves the ease of construction that this technique allows and the design possibilities available with applique. In addition to designing, quilting, and teaching in various parts of the United States, Cheryl enjoys a career in public education and is also a pastor's wife.
