About me

Gender Female
Location Capitola, CA, United States
Introduction I'm Karen, flickr known as CapitolaQuilter - because I live in Capitola, California, a little beach town with mild weather - the only kind I can handle! My hubby and I have two grown sons and an adorable baby grandgirl. Our two German Shorthair Pointers keep us entertained. I learned how to sew in 4-H as a child. In the late 90’s I made quilts occasionally, taking classes and teaching myself new techniques, until 2009 when I discovered Flickr and the online quilting community. I quickly became an active participant in swaps, bees and blog-hops. In 2011, I became a founding member of The Modern Quilt Guild’s Santa Cruz chapter and joined the Pajaro Valley Quilt Association. Collaborative projects and social sewing are among my favorite things to do. I loves to incorporate scrappy techniques into my quilts, enjoy melding traditional with modern design elements and embrace the evolution of my quilting journey.
Interests Quilting, photography, painting
