Author Sally CollinsAbout the Author

Sally Collins is an award-winning quiltmaker, teacher and author of three previously published books, Small Scale Quiltmaking, The Art of Machine Piecing and Borders, Bindings, and Edges. She took her first quilting class in 19787 and quickly discovered the pleasure and joy of making quilts. Although she is most recognized for her quality and workmanship and teaching expertise, her continualsl interest is in the process of quiltmaking -the journey. She loves the challenge of combining design, color and intricate piecing in a traditional style. Through this book, Sally hopes to quide and encourage quiltmakers to reach for their best and achieve quality workmanship.

Sally spends her time traveling across the country conducting workshops, giving presentations, and enjoying life with her husband, Joe; son, Sean; daughter-in-law, Evelyn; and grandchildren, Kaylin, Joey and Lucas.
