About Teri

Quilting is a journey, presenting many opportunities to explore creativity.  This present path has me exploring thread – of all fiber and weight -and the delightful work that comes from letting go and seeing what comes next.  The endless possibilities are exciting.

Teaching machine quilting is one of my very favorite experiences.  As the students begin to get the process and understand how all of the components come together the excitement builds.  I work toward an understanding of how each component from tension & needles to batting and fabric choices all effect machine quilting and how minor adjustment will allow the machine quilting process to flow more smoothly.  ”You can do this!” is often spoken in class with the gentle reminder that the process will take a little time and that’s fine. Writing and designing patters is an exciting part of my Quilt Life that I’m honored to take part in.  These opportunities to share and teach and grow as a quilter. I am Teri Lucas a… wife married 19 years to the love of my life!

Artists Statement:

Spontaneous serendipity describes my path of quilting in my two most recent series of quilts.  The City series and the Serendipity series push the traditional boundaries of whole cloth quilt making.  These unique quilts explore how thread, color and fiber affects the overall design of the quilt. This approach flows into my teaching as I encourage students to venture beyond their initial impressions and see where that may lead them in their quilting adventures.
