Caryl Bryer Fallert-Gentry, Illusion #37

From 1990 to 2014, Caryl Bryer Fallert-Gentry taught hundreds of quilting students how to make Illusion quilts based on her simple method for creating the appearance of overlapping transparent triangles. Now that she’s no longer teaching hands-on workshops, she’s offering a complimentary, commercial-free pattern and digital workshop with detailed, full-color, step-by-step instructions, here:

North Sound SDA Group Meeting, April 23

From North Sound Area Leader Valerie Wootton: In attendance: Robyn, Stephanie, Dorothy, Tesi and Valerie.

Dorothy reported that the Museo Gallery in Langley has been sold. A quick look at their website shows two exhibits in May. Elin Noble, noted fiber artist, in her first Museo show, will exhibit silk itajime shibori panels, as well as a selection of her “Fugitive Pieces” quilts. Brian O’Neill, ceramicist extraordinaire, presents new ceramic vessels. The show opens with an artists’ reception on Saturday, May 5, from 5 to 7 p.m. The exhibit will continue through May 29.

Dorothy also shared another amazing basket done in mad weave. She will also have one of her baskets in the Anacortes Art at the Ports show, August 3-5 in the Port Transit Shed Event Center.

Stephanie explained how a telephone quilt works. It’s based on the children’s game “gossip.” One person brings a small quilt and hands it off to the next person for “inspiration.” That person creates their own quilt based on the first one and hands the new quilt off to the next person for inspiration. The goal is to see how much the pieces change from start to finish.

Stephanie told us about Quilt Canada 2018. It will be held in Vancouver, BC, May 31 through June 2 at the Vancouver Convention Center, West Building, Hall A.
