Carol’s earliest memories of quilts involve playing under the quilt frame while her Grandma was quilting, and being thrilled when the collection of heirloom quilts was taken out of storage to be shown to guests. Carol’s mother taught her how to sew her own clothing, but she learned to quilt while working at The Old Country Store. In turn, she had the privilege of teaching her mother how to quilt.
“My passion in quilting is collecting antique fabric, preferably late 19th century fabrics, and creating miniature quilts. I love the challenge of taking a large quilt block pattern and resizing it into a smaller block,” says Carol. When she is not sewing with antique fabrics, she is dipping into her stash of reproduction Civil War fabrics.
Currently, Carol is employed as a care giver for senior citizens in their homes. Her hobbies, in addition to quilting, are nature photography, working in her flower gardens and motorcycle riding with her husband.
