Caryl Bryer Fallert quilts at the NEQM

Last week my friend Karen and I visited the New England Quilt Museum ... (hurray for working part time)...
... and we were wowed by this retrospective of Caryl Bryer Fallert's amazing work.   She is a master of color, for sure.  If you are local, it is a must-see-in-person exhibit!




My routine is to take a snapshot of the whole quilt, then the written descriptions/credits, followed by one or two detail shots.  This helps me keep organized and straight when it's time to post them.




I love looking back at the snapshots - reliving the exhibit and perhaps noticing things I hadn't.



This butterfly was a stunner:



Of course, I also mainly want to be in the moment and so I limit the photo taking... but just aim to give a little taste of the exhibit ... This gem of a museum never disappoints...


Meanwhile it is closing in on 11pm and it's a school night - so I will post again tomorrow - the  marvelous Civil War quilts and study quilts from the AQSG (American Quilt Study Group) - so cool!

  1. She is an amazing artist! Next time you plan to visit, let me know, I'd love to meet you there. It is a little over 2 hours for me and Cyndi (Busy Thimble) and I go whenever we can.
