Meet the Author
Sally Terry's quiltmaking path began at the age of three. Throughout her childhood, she made all her own clothing and even tailored her own suits. At high school graduation, the only clothes in her closet that she had not made were a jacket, a pair of denims, and a bathing suit. Her only lament is that she never got to shop for clothes. After graduating from Drake University, Sally attended graduate school in multimedia at the University of Grenoble in France.
