Do you know Carole Lyles Shaw? Well you should! I’m honored to introduce Carole, a modern textile artist who most definitely quilts in color!
Each month, inside the Playful Color Quilt Guild, I interview a guest artist to share a new perspective on the creative process. Members also get a look at a different creative color style! In a world where anything is possible, it’s refreshing to see a new perspective open up and stir our creativity!
This month’s featured Playful Color artist is very special because she just so happens to also a member of our community inside the Playful Color Quilt Guild! Meet Carole Lyles Shaw!
Carole is known for her bold use of color and designs full of chunky, modern shapes. In our conversation we talk about how she thinks about color and how she approaches creating art. (Members, log in here.)
Carole Lyles Shaw is a quilt designer, author and workshop teacher. Carole started quilting over 20 years ago when she decided to make quilts for her nieces and nephews. Though largely self-taught, Carole was generously mentored by the heirloom quilters in her first guild, the African American Quilters of Baltimore.
She co-founded the Sarasota Modern Quilt Guild and served on the Board of Directors of The Modern Quilt Guild from 2015-2017. Carole authored Madly Modern Quilts and Patriotic Modern Quilts. She also writes a line of modern quilt patterns.
Her modern quilts have been juried into several shows, including the Modern Quilt Guild Showcase at the 2018 International Quilt Festival in Houston; QuiltCon 2019; American Quilter’s Society QuiltWeek in Paducah (September 2018); MidAtlantic Quilt Festival 2019; Modern Quilts: Redesigning Traditions at the Ontario California Museum of History and Art (2016) and the Modern Quilt Guild Exhibit at the Texas Quilt Museum (2016). Her quilts have been published in many books and magazines, and exhibited in museums and galleries in the US and internationally.
