My name is Karla and I am here to tell you my design story. I confess, I was about to throw in the fat-quarter. In my true-life design story, I actually did toss the fabric out in front of me. Frustrated, I was about to discard my whole idea. That’s when the magic happened…

​The latest ride on my very curvy quilting journey (my design story) started by accident as I discovered the nuances of value in using both sides of fabric. This started the #usebothsides quilt patterns a short time ago.  More than 45 patterns later and tons of ideas in my head, I’m having more fun than a quilter should be allowed!

Learn the rest of my story and explore your own quilting journey on at a live presentation and trunk show by Karla! See more below.

I love meeting quilters and sharing my quilting journey! I provide an integrated trunk show and power point presentation, generally lasting 45 – 50 minutes. I’m happy to adapt my program to your group’s time and space needs.

Classes and workshops are available, tailored to your group’s size and needs. Quilters have a ton of much fun learning how to use BOTH sides!

Complete the following form and I’ll send you information for your guild or group. We’ll work together to design a program or workshop that works for you! (Please check your spam/junk folder if necessary.)
