Hand Made Quilts by Teri ScadutoBy the Sea Quilts
Teri Scaduto lives in Babylon, New York with her 15-year old-son. Her background includes careers as a caterer, writer, and editor. These days, as a professional long-arm quilter she uses an industrial sewing machine mounted on a 15-foot table to do the decorative stitching that holds together the three layers of her customers' quilts. When not in her quilting studio, creating her own designs or finishing her customers’ quilts, she spends her time in, on, or near the water.
Teri began quilting 15 years ago, with a simple calico nine-patch for her new-born son. She quickly discovered that quilting is a fascinating mix of the practical and the creative. She remains intrigued by the interplay of light and shadow that can be achieved in fabrics, as well as the endless possibilities inherent in combining traditional quilt patterns with modern sensibilities. Her expertise on the long-arm machine allows her to add intricate thread work to enhance the finished pieces. Her quilts, which range from the traditional patterns to contemporary designs, have won top prizes in several juried quilt shows.
