Terry MartinAbout the Author

This is Terry Martin's fifth quilting book, and she has many more ideas than time. She loves to lecture and teach classes, and she hopes eventually to translate more of her quilting ideas into books.

Terry lives with a very understanding husband and daughter in Snohomish, Washington. Se is active in her quilting community as a member of the Busy Bee Quilt Guild and Snohomish and as a teacher in local shops and on quilting cruises to Alaska. She is always willing to head off to a weekend of quilting at a local retreat. She loves the friendship, support, and never-ending laughter that her quilting friends provide her.
