"The best lecture we have ever Had!" - West Houston Quilter's Guild 

Colorful, informative and fun! -- Carol-Ann's lectures will keep you riveted!​

Tried and true quilting products books and patterns that are easy to read -- even for a beginner!​


Lectures, Workshops & Seminars


Carol Ann wrote this book with the beginner in mind explaining in detail quilting and sewing jargon. 

She included over 140 pictures with explanations of various steps in quilting, and although designed for the beginner, it also transitions into an advanced level of quilting so readers can follow and achieve a higher level in their quilting experience. 

This book teaches you to “begin with the end in mind”; to plan to finish your quilt and to learn about techniques that you think may be out of your skill level.

How do you combine a love for quilting and marry it with stained glass? - Stained Glass Quilting!

In this book I go over pattern selection, fabric choices, and the steps to make your very own sample from the patterns included in this book.

I have made dozens of these quilts. My favorite is “E-Kennekoi” (The Japanese word for “Koi Pond”) - the quilt that is on the cover. It took over two years to complete and well over two miles of thread just to piece it!

I hope you will enjoy the lessons in this book and be inspired to make a masterpiece of your own!

About Carol Ann Maurer

Not new to quilting, Carol Ann Maurer has been quilting since 1988. 

She is a registered nurse with a specialty in Emergency Trauma, went to Anesthesia School, and worked in the OR. 

Color and design intrigued her so she went back to school to study architecture and interior design for fun. 

After marrying her husband Harry, (an entertainer) she joined him on his world tours, and while they were living on the Island of Bermuda Carol Ann started quilting as a hobby to avoid Island fever. 

“It rained every afternoon for 51 days straight, but I didn’t notice,” she said, “Because I fell in love with fabric. And quilting!” 

Upon her return to the States, she immersed herself in classes and workshops and even joined a guild, learning more and more from wonderful teachers and peers. Never stop learning is her motto! 

When in Houston, she joins a bee that quilts for charity. She has also made 5 art quilts that sold to raise money for Alzheimer’s research. 

Carol Ann now does most of her quilting and pattern design on her computer that is placed conveniently next to her sewing machine. “If I get an idea, I can log it in right then and there”! 

Carol Ann has taught at Lone Star College, Great Expectations Quilts, Time Treasured Quilts, Quiltworks, and aboard the m/s Norwegian Dream, as well as in her own private studio. 

Her DVD “Somerset Christmas Ornaments”, was released in 2008, and is a popular seller in quilt shops. 

Watch for her new pattern line, and future classes on DVD.

Here are just a few of the classes available for quilt shops, quilt groups and organizations.
