Carol 5-1 I was raised in Middle Tennessee and have lived in EastTennessee since 1979.  My mother taught me to sew, but I taught myself to quilt; I had a new baby and needed a creative outlet.  I’ve made hundreds of quilts over some 45 years, from bedDSC00037 size to small mats.  I love working with color combinations; design is my favorite part of quilting.  I especially love scrap quilts and the challenge of putting together all patterns and colors of fabric to make a harmonious quilt top.

WH 21I have always liked to sing, and I learned to play guitar in 2005.  I picked up a mandolin several years later and fell in love with it.  I have played at the Museum of Appalachia, and I made several CDs of traditional old-time songs.  I ‘m also a songwriter.  “Heartstrings” was my first CD of original songs, and “Sing-Along Songs for Kids” contains my original songs for children.

I earned my bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Tennessee in 1983, andblue batik tote 1 worked as a reporter, copy editor, and news editor for a daily newspaper in Athens, Alabama.  I’ve also done free lance writing, and I wrote press releases, newsletters, and grant applications for the Museum of Appalachia for seven years.
