Lepidopteran 3

This gorgeous art quilt was made by Caryl Bryer Fallert. You can see the pattern on Bryer Patch. It measures 30" x 30." Her inspiration for this quilt came from a Bradford pear leaf that she found in her neighborhood. As she sketched designs, she noticed that it looked like the wings of a butterfly.
I've been an admirer of Caryl's for a long time. Remember the birds?

When my Mom and Dad went to Hawaii they brought back a necklace with an encapsulated butterfly wing in it for our daughter (their only granddaughter). This quilt reminded me of that jewelry piece. Thanks for the reminder.
Yes, I remember the birds - wasn't it a winner in the Quilts of the Century?

I agree, Carol is one of the most talented quilters in the country and that quilt just adds another star to her crown.
