Maria Peagler


* I’ve been quilting for over 15 years, sewing for 30 (yikes!)
* I’m the first person in my family to attend college
* I find humor in everything – life is too short to take so seriously
* I live near the base of the Appalachian Trail in Georgia
* I love to cook almost as much as I love to quilt
* I love to exercise and find it’s when most of my creative ideas surface
* I had seven published books by the time I was 30
* I homeschooled my children for three years
* I was Director of Courseware Development for the nation’s largest training company
* My favorite quilt: All of them, including the ones I’ve yet to make
* My favorite book: Peace Like a River by Leif Enger
* My favorite song: Man on the Moon by REM
* My favorite movie: Terms of Endearment or The Bourne Identity
* My favorite TV show: Burn Notice
* My favorite way to spend a Saturday: quilting, hiking, or hanging out with my family!
