Brenda Perry is a professional quilt maker, lecturer and teacher, and a self-proclaimed "Quiltaholic." She lives in Sanger, Texas, with her husband of 47 years, Don; they have a married daughter and two grown grandsons. They are her biggest fans. Brenda learned early on she loved working with her hands and has tried everything from macramé, tole painting, fabric crafts and cross stitch. Once she discovered quilting all else went by the wayside. She is a self-taught traditional quilter. She dabbled in art quilts enough to know her niche is elsewhere. Brenda states, "Quilting has taken over my life, but I'm not complaining. I am blessed."
"You'll be amazed at the beautiful quilt you can make from 4 yards of a single border stripe fabric." Here's one example:
