My name is Cherie and I have been living in Israel for the last 22 years but I was born and raised in Seattle Washington. I am a house designer by trade and have worked in the field the last 12 years. Resently I've stopped "working" but I'm very busy with my household of 4 teenaged children. I quit to make time for my hobbies yoga and quilting. I'm just a beginner in the quilting field but I have a degree in fine arts and fabric design that I had put aside when I got into architecture. I'm going back to my roots and my love for fabrics and find the QuiltingArts.com website a real inspiration!
