Name: Terry Wills

Where are you from and where do you live now?: All but three months of my life have been firmly planted in the mountains of Maine.

What is your favorite project you’ve ever made and why?: So hard to choose. Probably it would be a throw quilt I made for my husband. It was a mystery quilt along with Pat Sloan. The fun part was, my husband was helping me choose the colors for his own Christmas gift.

What color seems to always make its way into your quilts?: Blue

Do you have other creative hobbies?: Photography, gardening and fabric collecting. 

What’s your oldest UFO? Any tips on how you keep them from piling up?: I have a queen sized quilt I started about 15yrs ago. It’s size has made it very difficult to handle while hand quilting. Recently I got a quilting rack so hopefully the finish is within sight. 

What’s your favorite creative outlet?: I like designing my own quilts. It’s very relaxing and rewarding to me.

Tell us about your family! : My husband and I will been married 39yrs in November. We raised two sons and a daughter.
