Highlighting an Amazing Quilter and Designer - Carly of Quiltville

We are starting to feature some wonderful designers/artisians on our blog.  Our first feature is my friend, Carly of Quiltville.  Her work is sewn to perfection and her use of color/design makes me smile.  Here is Carly's introduction: 

" I live in a small town in Wisconsin. Wisconsin is Beautiful, Love Natures Beauty, hate the cold. I have the Greatest Husband, 5 Wonderful Children, 1 sweet Daughter-in-Law, an Adorable Grand Daughter and 2 Chesapeake Bay Retrievers. Life is good, Busy, but good. I have a small shop on called Quiltville. I Love Quilts, especially patchwork. I adore Paisley and the Fun new funky/retro fabrics. I am inspired by fabric; a new line of fabrics is like a flower garden in full bloom, choosing the right combination to make the perfect bouquet."

Last summer I discovered Carly's Etsy shop and her beautiful quilts! I love the way she features fabric lines. The companies need to give her some designing work!
