Quilts from well-known quilt artists grace the home of Caryl Fallert.
Most of you know that Suzanne Marshall (Episode 203 ) was, and is, my quilting mentor and cheerleader. Caryl Bryer Fallert's quilts (design and color) have had a powerful influence me (and many of you) since I started quilting in 1991. It is such a pleasure to know Caryl. It is rare that we could meet for longer than a fast hello as we pass in the halls en route to classes, or taking a quick lunch break. Because we had planned to arrive in Paducah before the madness of the show, we were able to plan dinner - which was fantastic (at Max's) but I also got to see Caryl's new 8000 sq. ft home, studio, and retail shop. I had toured it before it was finished, but this was my first time to see it completed. For Caryl, it is a dream come true and came true after a LOT of really hard work.
Caryl has good taste when collecting quilts. In the opening segment (kitchen) there are two small quilts made by two well-known quilters who will be featured in Series Three of TQS. Can you guess the artists? Also a third person is mentioned during this clip that will ALSO be on Series Three - and no, the answer is not me.
