A Lovely Day in Lowell - The New England Quilt Museum

This morning I headed to the New England Quilt Museum in Lowell, MA, to hear a Gallery Talk by Caryl Bryer Fallert-Gentry. The museum is exhibiting a retrospective of her thirty-year career as an art quilter. She spoke about her design inspirations and detailed her process of working. Her talk was truly wonderful!

I have seen many amazing quilts at other shows and at the Houston Quilt Festival, but none more magnificent than hers which are on exhibit through October 31, 2015. For me, her most iconic piece is On the Wings of a Dream.

Just look at this incredible machine quilting.

Above is Celebration #2.  As you can see, Caryl Bryer Fallert-Gentry's quilt are a glorious symphony of form, design, and exuberant color. If you live in the New England area, it is definitely worth traveling to Lowell to see this amazing exhibit. If you can't make it to the museum, then be sure to visit her online gallery.

While in Lowell, we also visited the Whistler House, the home of the artist James Whistler. More about that visit in my next post.
