Sherri and Chelsi

Sherri and Chelsi of A Quilting Life are a mother-daughter team living just a few miles away from each other in southern Nevada. Sherri is married and the mother of four children. She attended Brigham Young University and received a Bachelor of Arts in English from University of Nevada Las Vegas in 1989. Inspired by her rich family heritage of generations of women who loved sewing and creating, Sherri learned to sew after receiving a sewing machine for her tenth birthday. She began making quilts thanks to the gentle persuasion of her grandmother a few years after finishing college. During the summer of 2008, she started her quilting blog, which led to her discovery of the amazing online community of quilters and makers. She has been publishing her designs in magazines and books since 2011. Her first book, A Quilting Life: Creating a Handmade Home, was published in 2013, with Fresh Family Traditions published in 2014. Her third book, co-authored with friend and fellow Moda designer Corey Yoder, Sunday Best Quilts: 12 Must Make Quilts You’ll Love Forever, released in June 2019. Sherri has a fourth book released in May 2020—Labor of Love: Scrappy Quilts at the Heart of Home. And her fifth book: Home & Hearth: Quilts and More to Cozy Up Your Décor released in fall 2021. Her love of organizing prompted her to write the A Quilting Life Planner: A Portable Guide to Getting (and Staying) Organized, which was published in September 2020. And the follow-up full-size planner—A Quilting Life Planner and Workbook released in October 2021. In the spring of 2022, Home for the Holidays: Quilts and More to Welcome the Season released—co-authored with her daughter Chelsi Stratton. She continues to blog at www.aquiltinglife.com and is also blessed to be able to design fabric for Moda with her daughter Chelsi Stratton; their fifteenth fabric collection together arrives in shops in February 2023. Chelsi is married and the mother of two sweet daughters, Ashton and Harper, and a baby boy, Finn. She enjoys being at home with her young children and loves the adventures that go along with motherhood. Art materials were always the perfect gift for Chelsi as she has always loved to draw, paint and create. Sherri will tell you that she was repainting the house frequently because Chelsi loved drawing on the walls. She is passionate about nature, music and fashion – things that inspire her art today. And like her Mom, she has always loved the creative process. Working with fabric was inevitable as she remembers rummaging through the pile of fabrics in the sewing room looking for just the right combination, and she often went to sleep listening to the hum of her Mom’s sewing machine from the adjoining room. Sherri and Chelsi feel incredibly blessed to be able to design fabric for Moda.
