    Beyond amazing! Her work is expensive but the patterns and kits are not. Sounds like a great learning source if you are into that type of quilt. (and I am)
    Thanks

    To my mind, it is these wonderful quilt artists who will keep this craft alive and especially interest the younger generation in quilting. There is nothing wrong with tradition but it is so exciting to me that quilting can be an art form in it's own right. And pieces like this are worth every penny in the same way that an oil painting or a piece of sculpture by a fine artist is. :-D
    Oh, I so agree with you! I appreciate traditional quuilts, but I myself prefer to make my own patterns from a drawing or use a pattern where the print of the fabric is the main focus. I just did some hand dyeing, so that will be another direction for me to follow too.

    Stunning. Thanks for sharing. She's an artist from the ground up! She can do it all, plus broaden the horizons in the quilting genre! I applique but nothing like Caryl! I would love to create quilts similar to hers but need more practice and creativity.

    I've seen a lot of her quilts in person and the colors are beautiful to look at but the design of the quilts are not something I like or want to make.

    If anyone ever offered that for a quilt I made I would have them commited , right after I took the money and ran. LOL
    I love her work. If I had the patience to spend a year or more working on one maybe, just maybe I could get close to what she does.
    as for handdyed fabrics I have a hand dyer that I found on ebay years ago. She has done some custom work for me and she is terrific Hopefully I can find and get started on the last batch she did for me. Gotta love moving. lol

    She is one of my favourites - I have been following her work for years. David Taylor and Ricky Tims are on my list as well. Hollis Chatelain is another one to watch.
    By the way, I don't think that they are expensive. They are pricing their art for what the think it is worth and not underselling themselves. After all, if it didn't sell they would not be successful.

    She has won a lot awards. Style is not my popcorn but to each her/his own. I never understood why some of the items on antquie road show can be worth so much. I made up the popcorn saying. Do you like?

    Thank you so much for that site! It's so beautiful. My grandson is into Harry Potter and he asked me to make him a Phoenix when he saw me quilting. It was a chore and it took me weeks to do it but of course because it was for him I loved doing it. Looks pathetic next to that one!
