Carole Lyles Shaw is a modern quilt designer, author, and highly sought after workshop teacher. Carole started quilting over 20 years ago when she decided to make quilts for her nieces and nephews. She is largely self-taught but was generously mentored by the heirloom quilters in her first guild, the African American Quilters of Baltimore.
Carole is well known for her bold, maximalist use of rich colors and improvisational piecing techniques that make her quilts lively and exciting. She also loves using simple shapes to create quilt blocks that can be combined in ways that result in complex looking quilts.
Carole co-founded the Sarasota Modern Quilt Guild and served on the Board of Directors of The Modern Quilt Guild from 2015-2017. She is the author of two books and numerous quilt patterns.
