Karen Eckmeier of the Quilted Lizard


In 1996 Karen started making art quilts, which were very well received in national and international shows. The awards encouraged her to move forward; her hobby officially became her business in 2002 when she opened her business “The Quilted Lizard.” For 8 years she taught at a local quilt store and in 2002 she began teaching her technique “Layered Curves” and “Accidental Landscapes™” nationwide. Karen says "teaching workshops gives me the opportunity to share my passion for playing with fabric with others, and I love it!!"  Karen is the author of several books including Wearable Waves, Happy Villages, Layered Waves, and Accidental Landscapes.
