Cara makes very large art quilts and is currently working on a series called 3-D Explosion. She has written a new book and is teaching workshops about this design and sewing technique. The book is in stores now and is called 3-D Explosion: Simply FABULOUS Art Quilt Illusions. Her “3-D Party Explosion” quilt won the Viewer’s Choice award at the Houston International Quilt Festival in 2003.

Doodle Press is Cara’s publishing company. Her patterns can be found in quilt stores around the country and on her web site at

When she isn't lecturing, writing, teaching, publishing or creating art quilts, Cara can be found walking her dogs in the forest, where she lives with her husband in Marin County, California.
