Thanks for stopping by! This website features the words and work of artist Carla Barrett, award winning machine quilter, teacher, and designer. Carla also draws digital cartoons, and creates using a wide variety of mixed media. In addition, she teaches several popular online classes on machine quilting design and designing with a tablet. (Click the eClasses menu above for more information).
The title of this blog, Feathered Fibers, comes from the cartoon that Carla draws- a chicken who has a rather sarcastic and humorous view on life and quilting.
Carla’s background is as a self taught artist and designer. Look for her soon-to-be released digital quilting designs carried exclusively from Digitech, and her artwork featured on necklaces at LifeTiles:
She also loves anything “recycle/reuse,” creating something out of what other people throw away. This can be anything from fabric selvages to thrift store finds. Hence the wide variety of topics in Carla’s Tutorials page (look at tab on top of screen).
Carla is happily married to Joe Barrett, and they love to sail on their sailboat, SV Sea Glass, travel and plan to one day sail to tropical locations. More often than not, you will find Carla living and creating in her home, set on 5 acres next to a cattle ranch in the Gold Country foothills of Northern California with her family.
