About the Author

Longarm machine quilting allows Karen to combine her two passions: Wholecloth and Trapunto. Karen specializes in crafting award-winning quilts using techniques which allow machine quilters to replicate traditional "hand-quilted" effects. She has been featured on PBS's Quilt Central and HGTV's Simply Quilts. Her work has appeared in Joanne Line's books, Quilts from the Quilt Makers Gift #1 and #2, and numerous national magazines and journals. Karen is the author of Quilting for Show, Whitework Quilting, and Mastering the Art of McTavishing. She has been a full-time professional longarm quilter since 1997 and has been teaching around the country since 2001. Karen lives in Duluth, MN with her family Dan, Allison and Storm.
