Meet the Author

Carol Armstrong taught herself to quilt in 1980, developing a unique and highly artistic style. She uses her favorite technique, "Lightbox Applique." Botanically correct conventionalized celebrations of flora, birds, and woodland creatures are her strongest output, though any subject that catches her artistic eye may end up a minutely detailed grace on fabric. In 1986 Carol moved to Michigan's Upper Peninsula, where she lives with her cabinetmaker husband, J.M. Friedrich, in the country near Shingleton. Carol says the wonderfully snowy winters give her time to do lots of quilting while her husband "Red" makes fine craft items in his workshop a path away. When her fingers and eyes need a diversion, there is always water to pump and bring in the house, wood to load in the woodbox, bird feeders to fill, or the large organic vegetable garden to tend.
