Karen is known for taking a traditional pattern and giving it her own unique twist. She has always been intrigued with quilts of illusions and has been designing quilts with the illusion of depth for the many years.
She loves to share her quilt knowledge, teaching for quilt guilds and conferences nationwide, and was nominated for Teacher of the Year by "Professional Quilter Journal" in 1995. She is co-founder of Maury Quilter's Guild, has served several terms as president and vice-president and published their newsletter.
Her quilts have appeared in major quilt shows and her articles and patterns have appeared in many quilting magazines. Karen is also the co-author of "3-D Fun with Pandora's Box" published in 1997.
Karen grew up in Michigan and in 1990 moved to the rolling hills of middle Tennessee where she lives with husband Rick, daughter Angela, son Josh, two cats Gizmo and Benjamin, and at last count, four fish.
