About Me

Hi! I'm Karen, a quilter in northern California. I am drawn to the layers of design and expression possible in quilting, and love the learning that comes from experimenting. I endeavor to find efficiencies in process and material use. My designs are out of the box, and integrate a love of geometry, experimentation, interconnection, depth, and texture. I teach and lecture for quilt guilds, including QuiltCon, on topics ranging from design to quilting and piecing techniques because my passion is discovering excellent methods, and my superpower is finding a creative way to teach them.

My work has been featured in magazines including Curated Quilts, Modern Quilt Guild Journal, Make Modern, Modish Quilter, and Bait/Switch, and my quilts have been exhibited at local and international shows including QuiltCon, Pacific International Quilt Festival, and the de Young Museum. Learn more about my work by visiting my website at www.KarenBolan.com and Instagram @karen.bolan.
