Susan Terry made her first quilt at age five, after which she unfortunately got sidetracked into a college major in English, a family, and a job in computer programming. Happily, in 1990 she effected an escape from reality and a return to quilting.
After hand piecing her first large quilts, Susan discovered needle-turn appliqu. She has created a number of award-winning quilts in this medium, most of them her own designs and all of them hand quilted. Susan also designs and makes handmade cards.
This Christmas stocking obsession is a detour into which she wandered during one of her many attempts to use up fabric scraps. She's run out of grandchildren for whom to make stockings and is rapidly working her way through her extended family and friends. Soon she will have to find another use for all those tiny bits of fabric cluttering her workroom in Oakland, California.
