Carol Gilham Jones & Bobbi Finley

Carol Gilham JonesCarol Gilham Jones lives in Lawrence, Kansas, with her sweetheart, Charles, and their dogs, Sumo and Grace. Carol and Bobbi Finley had the good fortune of meeting at a San Francisco Bay Area quilting retreat in 1990. The friendship that grew out of their meeting soon included working together on quilts, despite their geographic distance. After collaborating on many quilt projects over the years, they wrote their first book together, Tile Quilt Revival: Reinventing a Forgotten Form, which was published by C&T Publishing in 2010.

Carol's quilts have twice appeared on the cover of the magazine Quilters Newsletter and in many other publications, including Judi Warren Blaydon's Collage+Cloth=Quilt, published by C&T Publishing in 2010. In 2004 and 2005, a quilt Carol made with Bobbi and Georgann Eglinski traveled throughout Japan in the exhibition Japanese Imagery in One Hundred Quilts, which featured the work of 75 artists from Japan and 25 from other countries.
