Hi there! I’m Cheryl Sleboda, and I’m the new blogger at Machine Quilting Unlimited! I’m really excited to be working with the staff here to give you a bunch of great tip, tricks, ideas, and information, plus lots of behind-the-scenes sneak peeks into the magazine and the world of machine quilting.
If you don’t know me, that’s ok. I’ve been a life long sewist, starting off in theatre costuming, and then transitioned to quilting in 1997. My first quilt was a kit from Jo-ann’s block of the month club (which is still unfinished 20 years later). Fast forward to today, where I am an award-winning quilter, and I teach and speak about quilting across the country.
Just after I started quilting all those years ago, I knew that I wanted to quilt my quilts by machine. There’s been so many innovations in this area over the years, including sewing machines that practically quilt by themselves. There’s a tremendous amount of information to learn to be successful, and I’m a very willing student!
I can’t wait to share all the wonderful things I’ve learned with you. If you haven’t followed Machine Quilting Unlimited on social media, please click HERE for our Facebook.
