Caroline from Stony Plain


is a great friend of mine and makes beautiful traditional quilts. We have been friends for years and I admire her work -- I love the color combinations and excellent work in her quilts - Isn't it great that there is room for all of us in the quilt and art world?

The first quilt 'Galaxy' was shown at the 'Around the Block quilt exhibition' in Stony Plain. I love the colors -it is one of my favorite color schemes.

The second quilt was a Block of the month which lasted for 23 months - each month

consisted of four blocks - total of 83 blocks! I love the colors in this one
too.
I have seen many many of Carolines' quilts and each one is beautifully made . Her color choices are so true and as you can tell, she has such a good eye for block and color placement. S/
