Longarm quilting and snippets of my life


Hi, my name is Carie Shields. I have a longarm quilting business called Sew Now What. I’ve been making quilts since 2003 and I’ve been quilting on a stand up frame since 2005. Quilting and being creative is my passion, but my family is the most important part of my life. I live in Scappoose, OR with my husband and my sidekick Millie.

UPDATE: I no longer quilt for customers. I’m currently hosting a quilting/knitting video podcast on YouTube. You can watch here: http://www.SewNowWhat/c/YouTube.com

  1. Do you have a website for your longarm business?

    My daughter is in love with the southwestern style quilt you made your brother. She saw it on Pinterest and hasn’t stopped talking about it.
    I’d love to make her one and am wondering how I can obtain the pattern.
    It would make her so happy.
    Thanks so much

    Hi Diane, I don’t have a pattern written up. I’ve had a lot of interest in this pattern, so I’m considering writing it and making it available. There’s so much that goes into writing a pattern and I’m not sure I’m up for the task.

    Dear Carie, Thank you for responding to my request. I think I could figure out the directions if you provide the measurements of the finished quilt/rows, etc., and the angles if the triangles, which I’ll be happy to pay you for. From the angle of the photo I can’t tell if you used half or quarter square triangles, or if you used other angles or a template. I have the fabric, my daughter REALLY LOVES this quilt, and I’d like to proceed. If I can do anything to help, please contact me. Thank you so much, Diane PS I saw your other quilt. You are a master quilter; do you exhibit? Do you create your own patterns?

    Hi Carie, Could you tell me where you got the digital quilt pattern “Bubbles” for the quilt at the bottom of the blog. Is there a website it is listed on?
