Thanks So Much for Visiting!

Hi, I am Carole Lyles Shaw and I teach online quilt classes for beginner quilters and experienced quilters. I offer instruction in modern traditional, modern and art quilting techniques.  My online quilt classes are available on demand, and I also run live events for students in my programs.

Click here to learn about my online quilt classes.

I also give quilt guild lectures where  I share my perspectives on current and emerging trends in the quilt world today.  I also take you behind the scenes and talk about my design processes.

In addition to teaching online quilt classes, I have an active studio practice as a contemporary textile artist.  My textile art has been juried into numerous fine art shows and quilt shows in galleries, museums and other venues. I work in two styles: creating textile art inspired by Geometric Abstraction and AfroModernism and exploring my family, personal and cultural history in my art quilts.

Check out my blog where I share tutorials, book reviews and also talk about  my works in progress.

My work is available for purchase and I accept a limited number of private commissions each year.  You can contact me here for more information.

Also, you can sign up for my newsletter  where I share information  about the world of quilting and textile art.
