Catherine Redford was brought up in the Northwest of England, learning to sew and knit at an early age. The family's Barbie Dolls and Action Men were always well-dressed, as was her husband Steve once she knitted him a Doctor Who-style scarf.
Currently living in Naperville, Illinois, Catherine is active in the local quilting and fiber arts communities, bringing her eclectic and original style to other quilters through books, TV appearances, and teaching.
Catherine strongly believes in our innate need to create, striving to give other quilters the tools to make quilting bring joy to their lives and to the lives of those around them.
Sally Terry's mission is to help machine quilters gain confidence in their design choices and sew beautiful machine quilting patterns with free motion freedom. She specializes in helping beginner machine quilters to develop machine quilting skills quickly.
Textiles have always fascinated me, from vintage to current, my taste has always been ALL! Sewing in general, mending to garment making, were never a chore. But when I pushed myself beyond traditional quilt making, I found the road less traveled was greatly inviting.
My quilts have been described as whirlwinds of color, with oranges residing next to purples of all shades in harmony. Dots, swirls, and stripes intermingle with florals and prints in an outlandish yet exciting visual parade.
This is how I see the world and how I want the world to see me.
My work mixes traditional quilting techniques with bold, innovative machine appliqué and thread work. Fabric choices include my own hand dyed cotton with commercial cottons for a special spark of color and depth. Pieces are heavily machine quilted.
The images are meant to spark thought and a smile, as humor is a great gift to share.
With the release of my new book Pieced Hexies… Well, I feel I have come full circle. So while you may know me initially as an Art Quilter… I am also a Traditional Quilter.

Hand appliqueing thousands of little scraps of fabric together, she creates quilts that look like paintings. These wall hangings are inherently and symbolically full of love and comfort. Often using over a hundred different fabrics in one composition, she revels in adding small details and surprises for the viewer to find. The quilting itself adds an additional element of texture to her work. Her quilts are frequently featured in museums, magazines, calendars, and international shows. Many of her quilts are in private collections.
