Cheri Meineke-Johnson, is well known for her work with Swarovski Crystals, as well as her amazing, prize winning quilts. Since 1998, Cheri has worked closely with Linda V. Taylor, who machine quilts her projects. Their creative partnership has proved to be a very successful blending of talents.
Using a technique known as "Fussy Cut", Cheri applies her applique to solid fabric. After Linda masterfully stitches and returns the finished quilts, Cheri embellishes them with crystals.
Quilts aren't the only surfaces Cheri likes to decorate with these eye-catching, crystals, though. She also adds Swarovski Crystals to jeans, tops, purses and yes, even to her glasses.
