Welcome Everyone to Day 3 of the 
Quilt Designer Holiday Blog Hop!  

Thanks to Debbie for a great Northwoods project and delicious recipe!  I can't wait to whip up some of those cookies!  Better yet.... I hope they come delivered right to my door!! Hint Hint!!! :-)

Our third Designer is 
Cheri Saffiote-Payne
Hometown * Poway, CA 


This gal is "over the top" talented!  

Back in the day, I remember flying out to CA with my husband (who had to attend a conference for work).  I could hardly wait to get off the plane and drive up North to Cheri's shop. Let me tell you girls ~ even the flat tire on the rental car did not stop me from getting there!!!  Needless to say, I was floored and overwhelmed....  the shop was over the top and filled with the most amazing wood and handwork designs I have ever seen!  She had the most beautiful displays nestled in the most unique vintage props one could find.  AND - if you were lucky you could even spot a cat snuggled up within a display!  Everywhere you looked ~ you were inspired by her work!  It was a shop I was thrilled to visit before she took her company into a new direction and closed her brick and mortar store.

Although the shop is no longer here, Cheri's talent and creativity are as strong as ever.  She continues to offer us some of the most unique primitive designs around!  From stitcheries to quilts, she offers something for everyone.  So gals head on over to her blog and check out some of her NEW designs!  You won't be disappointed!

Cheri's Fav quotes from

 ALBERT EINSTEIN

" Imagination is more important than knowledge" 
"Not everthing that counts can be counted and not everthing that can be counted counts" 
" Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new"  

PS * Don't forget... to print off your complimentary cookie swap recipe!
