Northampton Modern Quilt Guild
Carson Converse is an artist and designer passionate about textiles and the tradition of making cloth. After studying sculpture, her interest in the decorative arts and architecture led her to complete a master’s degree in interior design. While she continues to work in a range of creative disciplines, quilting has become a primary form of self-expression and personal contemplation. When creating quilts, Carson’s design process is fluid and relies on constant experimentation, observation, and reaction. Individual concepts and inspirations overlap and inform each other - ideas are often explored, put aside, then reworked or incorporated into another quilt years later.
Carson has been quilting for 20 years. She began her professional quilting career with a successful line of children’s quilts, before moving towards a fine art approach to quilting. Her award-winning work has been shown at venues around the world.
