Carolyn Vagts has a passion for all things quilting! She has been quilting for more than 10 years and is a designer, a shop owner and the editor of Quilter's World Magazine. She doesn't remember a time in her life when she wasn't creating things, either on paper or with fabrics. She studied art with a concentration in clay and pottery, which led to a career designing Christmas ornaments in Lake Orion, Michigan.
Carolyn began designing patterns in 2002 and opened her quilt shop in 2004. She found fabrics to be her new medium for creating fusible applique and started out simple, but then she found batiks! The color saturation and texture made them the perfect choice for her wall quilts, and she has never looked back.
Carolyn enjoys all forms of quilting: piecing, free-motion quilting, appliques of all types and embellishing. She has authored two books, Learn to Make a Quilt from Start to Finish, and I Can Quilt, a how-to for tweens. Her motto is, "If you can think it, you can do it."
