Cheryl Arkison

Cheryl is a quilter, writer, and mom. She writes and teaches on quilting, craft, creativity, food, and family. And it all comes from her dining room empire in her crowded, colourful house. From this space she wrote her first book, Sunday Morning Quilts (co-authored with Amanda Jean Nyberg, Stash Books, March 2012) and her second book, A Month of Sundays (Stash Books, July 2013). Her third book will be released in 2015. Happily considered a modern quilter, Cheryl’s work spans techniques. She is in love with scraps, circles, and improvisational piecing. The ability to just sit and sew is what gets her through the day, even when that sewing comes without a plan or any reason. It always comes together, eventually. A proud first generation Ukrainian, she is committed to not letting the artistry of food and craft from her heritage pass by unnoticed in the modern age. Cheryl is the mother of three kidlets - two gregarious girls and a baby boy. Find her online at
