Dora Cary

Dora Cary loves quilting for the creativity and freedom of expression it gives her, and she loves the quilting community for the amazing generosity and sense of camaraderie.  Her quilts have been displayed in many of the larger quilt shows.

I am so thankful that Dora shared about becoming a citizen of the United States and how the freedoms that we tend to take for granted mean so much to her.

Here’s some of Dora’s quilts that we talked about in the interview

Beads on a String – her first quilt pattern.

Arabesque – foundation paper pieced – the third quilt she ever made.

Only One – one fabric – one shape – a simplified and modern one-block-wonder quilt.

Here is Dora with Totally Spring – This was her first quilt accepted at QuiltCon in 2015.

Patch Nine – her second quilt accepted at QuiltCon in 2016

Also in 2016 Dora was at her first Market in Houston.

A few more of her quilts: City Girl – inspired by traditional block Farmer’s Daughter, Llamarama quilt at the Paso house in the sun, and Boxing Play.

It was fun to meet Dora in person at QuiltCon 2024
