Peggy Martin has been fascinated by the quilting world since she
began quilting in 1981. A quilting teacher since 1985, she became
interested in developing and teaching quicker techniques that produce
great designs in a fraction of the time. Her first book, Quick-Strip
Paper Piecing, applied a strip-pieced assembly-line approach
to paper piecing, revolutionizing and greatly speeding up the process.
Working with color and experimenting with new color combinations
and unusual fabrics are some of her trademarks. Her exploration
of different design possibilities continues to guide her in discovering
new ways to expand on tradition. Her enthusiastic students are inspired
to explore their own expressions in both color and design.
Peggy was born in Ohio and has lived in Southern California since
1970. he has a degree in music and plays piano, guitar and harp
when she isn't quilting, teaching or traveling. She lives in San
Diego and is married with two grown sons.
