The Savviest Designer for our Generation – Part One

Terry Atkinson just broke her own record!  She has EIGHT patterns in the Checker top 100 – including Yellow Brick Road, which arguably has to be the top selling pattern of all time!  This pattern was originally copyrighted in 2000 – and 15 years later, is still in the top 20.  This has been the first quilt – and their gateway to a love of quilting – for an entire generation of quilters as well as the go to quilt for experienced quilters.

Lucky Stars  was the first pattern I ever saw that showcased “floating” star points.  I don’t know if Terry invented this technique – which has now become mainstream – but this pattern introduced it to ME!  And, patterns like this guarantee successful results for even beginning quilters. What is not to love?????

Why are her patterns so successful?  Many of them are fat quarter or pre-cut friendly and offer a variety of size options – which is why shop owners love her .   And her color choices are spot on!  Since her zippers have been released, she has been the queen of simple, easy projects that can be completed in an afternoon.  But, PLEASE visit our website at: //www.checkerdist.com/search/ALL?link=1&vendor_num=A735 and re-visit her roots!  Her quilt patterns obviously stand up to the test of time so why not share them ALL with the next generation of quilters???
