We are delighted to have Carol Lohrenz of Eagle, Idaho as our featured quilter for 2015.
1. How did you get involved with quilting?
I grew up with quilts on our beds. My mother, grandmothers and all my aunts made quilts. I loved sewing and was in 4-H at an early age, so making quilts was a natural for me. As soon as my boys were off to college I began to make quilts. Much to my surprise, making a quilt was far different than making clothing or sewing accessories for my home.
2. What do you like best about quilting?
I have taken many classes from quilt designers. Now I love to design my own bed quilts, or art quilts for the wall by using the techniques I learned in their classes.
3.Do you have quilting goals?
I am a people person, and a teacher by profession so sharing my love for quilting and art with others is one of my favorite things to do. Sometimes my Studio becomes a classroom. A lot of creating, friendship and joy happen in ”my creative space!”
