about whole circle studio
Whole Circle Studio LLC was founded in January of 2015 by Sheri Cifaldi-Morrill and specializes in the design of custom modern quilts and patterns. Sheri, a trained graphic designer, believes that design and content have a symbiotic relationship. Both need to support one another and require a strong concept to fuel them. All of her designs start with a concept and the content (research, backstory, color, fabric selection and technique) helps shape the design.
Whole Circle Studio strives to make beautiful objects that inspire others to make and learn by providing clear instruction and encouragement.
Sheri Cifaldi-Morrill is a designer, maker and self-taught modern quilter. Sheri graduated from the University of Connecticut with a BFA in Graphic Design. She has twenty years of experience leading creative teams to create award winning identities, products and environments. She has worked in small design studios, a dot com and the exhibit department at a children’s museum.
Sheri’s quilts have gained national recognition including awards from QuiltCon, Quilt Week/Paducah and the Quilt Alliance. They have been featured at art centers and galleries across the country. In addition to publishing her patterns, her quilts have been featured in national publications such as Modern Patchwork. She also teaches quilting techniques.
Sheri was awarded the first annual Craftsy Quilt Designer Fellowship in 2016. This fellowship enabled her to debut Whole Circle Studio’s first booth at International Quilt Market in Houston, Texas in October 2016.
Sheri works from her home studio in the suburbs of New Haven, Connecticut—a hop, skip and jump away from New York City.
