Designer, Maker

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.

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.
