Carolyn Friedlander learned to quilt in 2009. Though she had long known how to sew, quilting was a revelation to her, as it entailed a whole new set of tools, materials, and, most importantly, creative possibilities. She quickly recognized quilting as a new passion and set out to learn everything she could about the craft. In 2010, she founded her business, Carolyn Friedlander LLC. As a young quilter with a design school background, she was drawn to bright and bold fabrics and saw a need for clean, modern patterns. Thus, she began to create her own patterns. Her first fabric line with Robert Kaufman was released in 2012. Carolyn's designs have been featured in many magazines in the USA and is fast becoming a permanent fixture amongst the modern quilting groups in Australia.
