Carla grew up in Shelburne and actually attended elementary school in what is now the Shelburne Town Offices. She currently lives in South Burlington. She majored in geology at University of Vermont and has a master degrees in geology and health physics. She worked for the Department of Health for 29 years before retiring in 2015.
Carla has been a member of the Champlain Valley Quilt Guild since 2008, the Vermont Modern Quilt Guild (2015), the Mountain Art Quilters (2016), and the Studio Art Quilt Associates (2012). She has been the membership chair for the Champlain Valley quilt Guild since 2014.
Carla shows her quilts at the Champlain Valley Quilt Guild Show (2009 to present) and the Vermont Quilt Festival (2013, 2014, 2016, 2017) and has received ribbons at both shows. Her quilts also have been featured in several local exhibits. She is venturing into the national level by showing her quilts with the Studio Art Quilt Associates.
Carla's favorite challenge is transforming her photographs of nature into art quilts. Flowers, landscapes and birds are among her favorites. She uses bright colors and thread paining on most of her art quilts.
Carla also loves the freedom of long-arm quilting. She has made long-arm quilts for family and community quilt groups.
Please feel free to contact Carla if you are interested in having a favorite picture made into a quilt or in any of the quilts displayed at the Town Offices.
