Crafter, Designer

Hi there, I'm Carrie. I am a crafter and designer living in coastal Maine.  It's fall now and my favorite time of the day is when my daughter gets off the school bus and we roll apples down the driveway while the cats chase them.  We call it 'Bowling for Cats'. The rest of the day I'm sewing quilty things and framing little cross stitch snowflakes, designing quilts and painting needlepoint canvases.

Modern Patchwork Gifts 2016

I was so pleased to have my scrappy trees on the cover of the premiere edition of Modern Patchwork Gifts!  These trees came about when I was left with a pile of scraps from a quilt.  They sew up very quickly and can be made in an infinite rage of sizes, shapes, and colors.

I am currently working to produce the pattern for sale.  Check my ETSY shop soon and you'll have your own scrappy trees for next Christmas(or any time of year)!


UPPERCASE  Issue #29  

My first published project in my absolute favorite magazine.  Janine Vangool, editor of UPPERCASE magazine, put out a call for submissions for an issue celebrating books, in all aspects and interpretations.  I had just recently finished my needle books and knew she would appreciate the selection of vintage circus themed fabric I chose as the cover centrepiece.  The magazine is published quarterly, each with a theme, along with a new project of Inspirational Encyclopedias.  They are always accepting pitch ideas and submissions for future issues, check out their guidlines here.
