Fifteen years ago, a group of women decided to form a quilt guild on the west side of the Portland Metro area. Terry Grant was part of that group who became the Founding Mothers of Metropolitan Patchwork Society (MPS). She is a graphic artist by training and created the original enamel pin many of our members wear. In the past, Terry has spoken to the guild a couple of times and been the featured quilter at an MPS Quilt Show. She is no longer an active MPS member but continues to explore and create art in her local studio.
Her art quilts are made with a fusing process she developed. This distinct style makes her work recognizable. She has been involved in many projects and groups in her career. One project included twelve artists from around the globe: twelve artists made a 12”x12” art piece each month. These pieces became a book and a traveling exhibit, “Twelve by Twelve.”
Terry was named one of two Rising Stars for the 2019 International Quilt Festival in Houston this fall. Please enjoy the interview by Alex Anderson of The Quilt Show here.
Terry’s website includes galleries of her work, links to her past and present projects and her blog: TerryGrantastic.com
Congratulations to Terry!
