Carolyn started quilting when she was at school, and it has since then become an integral part of her life. Over the years her work has been featured in various British magazines including Popular Patchwork, Fabrications and Patchwork & Quilting Magazine. Her quilts have appeared on the television; both in the UK and in the US. She has contributed to books published by New Holland, That Patchwork Place and David & Charles. Her quilts have hung on display at Quilt Market in the US and she has recently designed projects for Makower fabrics.
As a teacher she was inspired to write a book about making quilts and quilting them in small sections to help her students overcome the need to quilt a quilt in one large and often unwieldy piece therefore allowing their quilts to grow gradually and easily.
