Karen Bolan

Karen Bolan is a quilt teacher, lecturer, and pattern designer. She’s drawn to the layers of design and expression possible in quilting, and loves the learning that comes from experimenting. Her designs are out of the box, and integrate a love of geometry, experimentation, interconnection, depth, and texture. Karen teaches and writes quilting patterns with an encouraging and engineering-influenced methodological approach. While her classes blend lecture, demonstration, and discussion, and include ample hands-on time for students to experience and practice new techniques with individual instruction. She always teaches with a focus on fun and skill-building. At the same time she carefully and compassionately guides students beyond their comfort zones to new levels of enjoyment, creativity, and skill.
