We are Carol and Jim Ethington, of Wild Violet Quilt Studio.  One of my first memories is learning to sew with my grandmother, and I have been sewing ever since.  When I discovered quilting, I discovered my passion. My favorite fabrics are bright and bold. Jim handles the technical end of the business. He keeps my longarm tweaked just right. Jim made a quilt of his own so he would be able to “speak quilt”. He did a mighty fine job of it, too.
