Hi there, I'm Carrie. I am a designer and maker living in coastal Maine.
I design and make modern and traditional quilts, I sew garments, I design and make cross stitch, needlepoint, and embroidery. I am trying not to add to this list right, especially with gardening season upon us, but I really want to try punch needle work and pick rug-hooking back up.
My craft is a continuous conversation I am having between my traditional and modern exploratory selves. I practice craft in a constant ebb and flow between different aesthetics and feel my inspiration lies in these intersecting interests and values.

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)!
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.
