About Susan Carlson (from her website)
Currently teach quilting nationally and internationally. Developed my own technique of fabric collage quilting which I have explained in depth in two books, Free-Style Quilts and Serendipity Quilts. I usually teach at retreats, quilting guilds, or fabric shops, but I also run retreats here in my hometown.
I’ve been creating art with fabric since 1983 while attending the Maryland Institute, College of Art. There, I used any excuse I could to use fabric as an art medium for my illustration assignments. I painted on fabric, inked, dyed, drew with thread, did traditional piecing, appliqué and reverse appliqué. My influence was my mom, who trained as a dressmaker and seamstress. From her I inherited my love of fabric. I think it’s the tactile nature of it. My husband has more than once noted that when I shop for fabric, my hands are as busy fondling fabric as my eyes are drinking in the pattern and color.
