During forty years of quilting, Carol has become interested in making small quilted projects as well as quilts. As a retired physician, she enjoys bringing her technical mind to quilting. She enjoys figuring out how to make the construction process easier while producing better results. She has also refined techniques for building, organizing, and using a fabric stash that make it a joy to have and to use.
In addition to quilts, Carol enjoys making small projects such as zipper bags, tote bags, table runners and table mats. These do not require a large investment of time or materials, and therefore provide ample opportunity to exercise creativity.
Carol has been teaching quilting classes for about ten years. She loves sharing her tips and tricks with others and encouraging students as they try new projects and techniques. One of her favorite aspects of teaching is seeing students succeed at completing a challenging project. Another is seeing students have “Aha!” moments during which they see how simple changes in construction technique can help them create projects that look better while taking less effort.
Carol teaches in both lecture and hands-on workshop formats. She has presented at quilt guilds, taught at local quilt shops, and led quilt show workshops.
The Portfolio on this website shows a sample of Carol’s work. Most of the projects shown are made from original designs or incorporate traditional design elements. Photographs of items that show Carol’s interpretation of another designer’s pattern identify the original pattern source.
