About Me

Quilt Designer | Workshop Teacher | Author

I started teaching myself to quilt when I decided to make quilts for my wonderful nieces and nephews.  Then, I found my first quilting home with the African American Quilters of Baltimore, who gently taught me the best techniques to express my quilt vision.

Today, I design patterns to help beginning and experienced quilters confidently dive into modern quilting.  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 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.   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.

Happy Modern Quilting!  –Carole

    Carole- I took the Fibonacci # 1 class in Rochester, MN and added the final borders to my top today. There are 3 mistakes in the pattern. Adding together the sizes of the blocks, Piece L must be 65.5 (not 64.5), Piece M must be 70.5 (not 68.5) and the top finishes at 70.5 x 70.5 (not 68 x 69)

      Thanks for the note. I’ll check into this right away and post corrections on the border cutting size. With these corrections, yes, the quilt finishes at 70 x 70. I’ll make corrections in future patterns.
