Meet Your Quilting Instructor

Karen found quilting about 25 years ago and it became her passion.  She enjoys contemporary and art quilting and uses a variety of techniques to achieve the look she’s after, from dyeing her own fabrics to thread painting to using embellishments and beading on the quilt.

 She particularly likes Round Robin quilts for the camaraderie they provide and for the creative challenges they present and has written articles about Round Robins for AQS where her quilt, Autumn Equinox, was featured on the cover.

Karen has been teaching and lecturing for the past 10 years and loves to help people find their creative muse.  She shows how changing backgrounds, using large scale prints and ethnic fabrics can get stunning results and really change up the look of your piece.  She began designing her own patterns and techniques. They look much more complex than they actually are and most of her wall quilt patterns can be nearly finished in a day-long class. 

She lives in Punta Gorda, FL with her husband and 2 dogs and loves traveling (where she finds interesting fabrics for new quilts) and cooking.

Karen's Projects



Love traditional Double Wedding Rings, but don't want the hassle of curved piecing?  Then this is for you!

Love more artful designs & colorways?  Then this is for you!

Follow the pattern or change it up!  Stay traditional or let your creativity bloom! The flexibility and versatility of this block is surprising!

In this class we’ll change the process of the Double Wedding Ring, taking out all the curved piecing that makes this block so challenging. By appliquéing the rings, we’ll be able to focus our energies on creativity. 

  Fusible applique makes this fun and easy.  Learn tips and secrets of fusing, how to make circles any size for any projects, some new tools, and some finishing techniques.



A joyful quilt where you can almost hear the music!  What a difference colors make--choose your colors and make this uniquely your own.

A great project for your home, or perfect for a gift! 

Pick a black background for excitement, an ombre background for drama, or a muted background for hearing the music!
