Most quilters want to learn new techniques to create better quilts. At QuiltNotes, we believe every quilter can learn any technique if instructions are clear and demonstrations are available.

Without sacrificing your creativity, we’ll take you through our simple 5 step process to complete any quilt top. The techniques you learn in the different workshops can be used to make other quilts.

We understand how frustrating it can be when local classes don’t fit your schedule or simply don’t exist. Our workshops are available online and on your schedule. Answers to your questions are only an email away.


I’ve been making quilts and teaching quilt techniques for more than 15 years. Over that time, I’ve developed a process for teaching that takes you step-by-step through completing a quilt top. Experts, beginners and anyone in between, can take these workshops to learn new techniques to create stunning quilt tops.

In each class you'll find:

  • Step-by-step instructions
  • Lots of video demos
  • Techniques you can use on other quilts
  • Access that never expires




Follow the steps that bring the fun and creativity back to quiltmaking.

Learn new techniques to add to your quilting toolbox.

Gain the confidence you need to complete future quilts.







The last thing you need is another unfinished project taking up space in your studio. Not only it is a waste of money, it’s also a waste of your time.

It’s not your fault instructions are confusing or classes not available. You can learn the process and techniques you need to complete your quilt top.

Follow our plan, learn new techniques and become a more confident quilter.

What Students are Saying

Jackie ~ It was well organized and professionally presented and I really liked your indexing the video segments! Thought that was a great idea! You have a direct, no nonsense approach that is refreshing.  I like the intro where you tell us what you will be presenting first.  And since I am not a paper-piecer, it was nice to be able to sit through it once before I would actually make the quilt.

Debbie ~ Carol is a great teacher. I followed along with everything she said. She wasn’t too slow or too fast. Her online workshops are great for anyone wanting to paper piece that can’t travel across the US to take classes and be gone for days. This is the place to go for online lessons. I love her Judy Niemeyer quilts too!

Barbara ~ I took a paper piecing class elsewhere and was left hanging. I never finished it. I took Glacier Star class with Carol. The pattern was a big challenge for me and this wonderful teacher helped me the whole way. Carol has the patience of Job (and more) and she is a fun lady. I now have a beautiful, finished quilt. Thank you Carol!

Martha ~ I was totally confused about paper piecing. None of it made sense to me. I had taken two different classes with two different certified teachers but still had no idea how to do it. I had two barely started quilts and 3 more patterns. I felt that I was hopeless. Carol offered a class near me so I said one more try. How lucky for me that Carol was the most patient teacher. She explained everything so well that I understood. She helped me through any problems and made everything so clear. Paper piecing is wonderful since Carol's class. Thank you so much Carol
