Cheryl Brickey

Just a little about me: By day I work as an engineer and patent agent for a private textile and chemical company. I enjoy seeing all of the new inventions being developed and I like that even if I am not sewing quilts during the day, I am still working with and learning about textiles.

I have always been crafty trying my hand at cake decorating, cooking, crocheting but always had a love for quilts (though there were no quilters in my family). I decided to make my daughter a quilt for her “big girl” toddler bed so I went to the fabric store and bought a cutting mat, rotary cutting, and ruler and armed with my mother’s old 1980’a slant shank Singer and hours of visiting blogs and watching YouTube videos, I made my first quilt. I have been hooked ever since.

I love the online quilting community! I have truly found a home online and I am very fortunate to be able to call some wonderful quilters friends. I like having a two way conversation so I encourage comments and try to respond to each one (as well as visit the commenter’s blog).

If you want to take a look around my blog –, you will find my latest finishes, tutorials, patterns, and popular yearly mystery quilt in the tabs at the top of the blog and on the sidebar.

If you ever need to reach me, you can leave a comment on one of my posts or email me directly. Besides my blog, you can find me often on Instagram @MeadowMistDesigns and on Facebook. I look forward to meeting you and exploring the world of quilting together!
