Lorraine Carthew

After a successful career designing and producing her own fashion label in Queensland, Australia, Lorraine Carthew turned to textile art and quilting. Her first quilts were in traditional appliqué. But soon, she began developing her own style of quilting. Portraits in one-inch squares and mosaic appliqué were the results. She has been producing prize-winning quilts for ten years. Among her many awards are three Best of Show, Best Use of Color, and Viewers Choice. Lorraine values her Viewers Choice awards because they show acceptance from her fellow quilters. She has written several magazine articles and her work has been extensively published. She teaches her special style of mosaic appliqué throughout Australia. Visit Lorraine's web site at
