Cheryl Haynes has crafting in her blood: her parents were basket makers and her grandmothers were quilters. She has designed well over 300 patterns and books. She has had quilts displayed in Calendars and various quilting magazines. She began her business by hand crafting oak and reed baskets, designing patterns for dolls and quilted wall hangings. Today she runs the Prarie Grove Peddler, a pattern website.
