    Her work is very good, to say the least but they don't look like quilts to me.
    Still, wonderful art!!! :D Just not my type, not that I could ever even aspire to what she does lol :D

    Beyond amazing. Worth the fine art prices I'm sure, but no more valuable than the one that can be cried on, peed on, puked on and machine washed to serve a child another day!

    She has won several times in Paducah. You can always tell her work because it's always bright & beautiful. She's a true artist in every aspect. Not your typical quilting but if you ever go to a Paducah show, you can almost always count on seeing something in there from her.

    OMG! I love them. I would love to get one of her workshop patterns on disc to see how it is done.

    She is my quilting hero! Have met her three times, twice at her studio and my dream is to go to a workshop there. She is a warm person also.

    I just showed Carol's work to DH and all I can say is that he would be thrilled if I could produce anything remotely like one of her pieces - he loves the more modern art quilts.

    She won at the IQF in Houston a few years ago with "On the wings of a dream". It really was amazing.

    Well no wonder they're so expensive...hand dyed, hand painted, machine pieced, appliqued, quilted, and not to mention the work looks fantastic. And it looks like some of her work is even in muesuems. Wow.

    I really like this one: http://www.bryerpatch.com/images/qui..._wild_side.htm

    Expensive is RIGHT! Beautiful, beautiful and what detail and made for shows. I prefer to give mine away to those I love and $64,000.00 can't buy that!

    This is just my cup of tea when I think of quilts. I guess I am just too old-fashioned. Give me a basic nine-patch any day.

    Her work is wonderful, thank you so much for sharing. I LOVE this one http://www.bryerpatch.com/images/qui...udy30_118k.jpg

    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

    Her work reminds me of Gail Garber's quilts. Only hers are much more 'artsy' than Gail's. www.gailgarber.com

    Well said K3n, I love her work and others like Helen Godden ( http://www.helengodden.com/ ) They inspire me to keep trying new techniqes.

    But first I must finish Dad's quilt :lol:

    Wow I love that too! Her art background is very evident. I love the pear one and the new 'paintchwork' technique she is teaching - how I wish I could fly over for one of her 'arty farty' weekends - shall we go together? :mrgreen: :lol: When you've finished Dad's quilt of course! :lol:

    I'd love too, Helen Godden lives in Canberra as well and her arty Farty weekends are held about an hours drive from my house. She is so much fun you would be in stitches all weekend. :lol:
    After I finish this *#&%$# quilt :evil: :lol:
