About Me

Carole Shaw Formal 9-23-07 BWI am a modern quilt designer, author and workshop instructor.  I love being a member of the quilt and textile art community. I started quilting many years ago when I decided to make quilts for my wonderful nieces and nephews. I’ve always taken a modern, improvisational approach to all my quilting projects—whether they are artquilts for the walls or quilts for the beds—and babies—of my family and friends.

I am excited about modern quilting because it is all about bringing individualism and free expression to the way we design and make quilts today. I design patterns to help beginning and experienced quilters confidently dive into modern quilting. I hope that my patterns will inspire you to find ways to let your own creative voice shine.  I lecture and teach classes on modern quilting techniques for beginning and experienced quilters.

Madly Modern QuiltsMy first book, Madly Modern: Patterns and Techniques to Inspire Your Quilting Creativity is now availableHere’s the link to my Store to purchase the book.

I hope that you will consider inviting me to share my love of modern quilting with your group!  On this site, I’ve provided descriptions of the lectures and workshops that I offer—and please do get in touch with me if you have additional questions. The best way to reach me is through the Contact Me page.
