To me, Caryl Fallert is the goddess of the quilt world. Her quilts knock my socks off.

There is an amazing quilt artist here at TQS that I found while checking out the gallery. Her screen name is Clara8 and she has done the most stunning horse portraits. I have never seen anything like the work that she has done. She is definitely my favorite quilt artist to watch for in the gallery.

WOW
Just found this on the forum and am loving going to all the sites mentioned. Taking a QU class with Marilyn Belford and must add her to your list. Her quilt portraits are amazing and she is a great teacher. Check out the work of her students.

Thank you both for your kind comments. It really is intimidating to put something like this 'out there' for exposure. As for entering in shows, it would have to be a very specific venue with liberal 'rules' :wink: because this doesn't have a 'proper' binding, etc. Will see. My aim would be to encourage others to give the process a try and this venue should serve just as well.
quiltnart, the interesting addition in the bottom left hand corner of the picutre is done by 'working' some bits of yarn and fabric on Sulky Solvy (in a hoop), free motion stitching over it to make it a unit, then wetting to disolve the Solvy. I added some beads after attaching it to the piece.
My friend, Linda Anderson (art quilter) taught me this technique. It's a signature of hers. She doesn't have a website (YET - I'm encouraging her), and she has dial-up service because she is rural, so doesn't have easy access to this. You can see some of her earlier works on Rosemary Eichorns site http://www.Sewjourn.com Enter, then go to Student Gallery...halfway down....says Linda Anderson, Salinas, CA. (now Spokane - yeah). Click on one of her images to enlarge for closeup.
It's wonderful to have friends to learn techniques from! Share what interests you - pay it forward. :D

Sorry for the brief post before, but I had to get offline and go take care of the cat. But I did want to come back and take a better look. I did click to enlarge it and my -- all the detail work. What looks like cording maybe with some beads on it (on the left side of the photo) looks very interesting. I've got to go or I'll spend the whole afternoon asking about specifics and how you did it. I'm on a deadline right now, so that probably isn't a good idea. But great work -- keep it up.
