Master quilter Carole Carter will lecture and show her quilts to members of the Ocean Waves Quilt Guild at 10 a.m., Monday, Oct. 4, at Conley’s United Methodist Church off Camp Arrowhead Road, Lewes.
Carter is a quilt designer, teacher, blogger and quilter extraordinaire; her lecture to the guild will focus on the choices quilters face when selecting threads, batting and quilting tools, and deciding on a quilting design. Traveling from her home in North Carolina with a trunk full of quilts, Carter will use this lecture to illustrate her ideas about quilting design and how choices impact design.
She said quilting has been her therapy, a break from the stress and pressure of her working life up to the year she retired. Carter now pursues quilting and her other hobbies full time. Since 2014, she has written her own blog and now has hundreds of posts with quilting ideas, patterns, sewing tips and more. She is the designer of the Scrap Dance pattern collection.
