Carolina is an architect and the projects she makes always reflect her attention to detail and a great ability to balance shapes, colors and lines. Her favorite techniques include free motion quilting, geometric compositions with rulers and micro-quilting.

After moving to Connecticut, Carolina started teaching quilting classes and workshops based on her own methods and artistic background. Her goal with students is to make them able to recognize the strong elements of their own quilts and use free motion quilting designs to create unique work.
Today, Carolina is an award-winning show teacher who also had the honor of seeing her work displayed at the International Quilt Festival in Houston/Chicago, American Quilters Society and many other national and international quilt shows.
